Funny and endearing
on 29 March 2014
Title of the review pretty much summaries how much I enjoyed this novel.
The protagonist, Jimmy, lives with his grandma in the run-down part of a small town and he's initially the relatable unpopular guy who spends time reading books and watching tv shows.. his ordinary life changes when a series of actions lead him to meeting a talkative, charming girl named Peaches... coincidentally, the apocalypse strikes soon after.
The narration flowed quickly and I found myself laughing out loud at the dialogues and Jimmy 's internal reasoning several times!!
I loved how the zombie horror element didn't come across as strongly as other novels. In fact, I'm a bit of a scaredy cat so it was a relief that the author went easy on the suspense. There are many original plot twists and the characters are all very endearing!!
