First and foremost, that cover is absolutely stunning!!! I mean, the minute I saw it, I knew that I wanted to read it, and as it's a novella and relatively short, that's exactly what I did.
Love Lies Bleeding is unlike any zombie novel that I've read, and, in fact, I forgot that it was about zombies at all, until the very end. This story is definitely not your normal, run of the mill zombie book. It's also not a traditional story about a girl pining away for the love she's lost, although that is how the story opens. Doidge sets the stage with the funeral of Grady, sending Pamela into a funk in which she wants nothing more than to die alongside Grady's grave. And this, my dear readers, is where the story begins to lift off. And get weird. Now, weird usually has negative connotations, but rest assured, I'm using it as a positive here--readers just need to know that this novella has a lot of twists and turns that might leave them scratching their heads, but it is a dark comedy, after all, and I definitely found a lot of the quirky elements, characters, and twists to be quite funny.
If you're in the mood for something unusual, this is definitely it. I highly suggest you pick it up!!
