Critic Reviews

"George Romero...should snap up the rights to this novel. It has everything: zombies, gore, brain-eating, love, death, even a murder mystery...Kenemore combines humor with horror in a way that is guaranteed to make any zombie fan stand up and shout, Braaaaaains!" ( Booklist)

Phenomenal

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I already have, multiple times. I don't generally like people's attempts to write stories from the zombie's perspective, but this was awesome, thought provoking, funny and occasionally shocking.

This is an excellent book. The story was well paced. The characters were well done. All in all I feel that this was an excellent ride filled with fun and emotion and some definitely interesting twists on the zombie concept. Enjoy!

Two Thumbs Down!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is not a fair review because I could not finish the book. Kenemore is a great writer but this book was boring. The first 5 minuets (car wreck) was good then it went down hill. In the first part the main character does not act like most Zombies; he is coherent, has all cognitive abilities, and is no different than most humans except he discovers he wants to eat humans. This is as far as I got.....I yawned through most of it waiting for the action or real zombie conflict but was only disappointed. I guess it just boiled down to connecting with the main character. I have read other books with Zombies who had emotions or some cognitive abilities like Warm Bodies and Raising Stoney Mayhall but this character was just flat boring and not interesting.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No!

This was an interesting change of perspective.

I like the concept of imagining what it might be like from the zombie perspective.

Wow. This is awful.

This book doesn’t work on any level. Pass it buy unless you’re a friend of the author.

If you are looking for action don't buy this book.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, I listened to half of the book and felt very cheated for my purchase; I will be seeking a return credit. I should have listened to the other reviews, but I wanted to give it a chance. Most said it was the reader that ruined it for them, but it is the lack of energy within the book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Scott Kenemore? Why or why not?

Yes, he seems to be a talented writer, but this book was not spectacular by far. He had a good premise, but the story was slow and lost its way.

How could the performance have been better?

Certainly a different reader would have helped this book, but all in all, the story was lackluster.

Was Zombie, Ohio worth the listening time?

NO

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the idea that was brought to this story, but the execution of the actual storyline was poor. That having been said; the writing was very good, it wasn't one of those books that killed you to push through due to poor writing (punctuation, wording, grammar, etc). The book was purely boring and did nothing to hold my interest.
