Written in the same episodic way of the original, we get to spend time in the heads of several different zombies and they are a varied group. I can't say too much about them, because that would give away the story, but who they were in life is helplessly and hopelessly evident in their thoughts during their "afterlife". Ranging from sad to seething, there are even bright points of absolute hilarity in the book, one of which should leave Hugh Howey fans in stitches.
I highly recommend this to fans of zombies in general, not just fans of "I, Zombie". And I'd do it quickly before Dave wises up and prices this book where it should be, because it's under-priced!
Not wanting to be wholly negative (and thus easily dismissed as a hateful critic), the seventh of the thirteen sections is actually pretty good. It deals with the parasitic toxoplasma as a possible cause for becoming undead. Well done and decently researched.
I'll confess that I didn't buy this book for myself, but for a friend who enjoys all things zombie, including being one for halloween. I was just gonna give it to him, but another friend cautioned that I should read it first. I personally don't care for depictions of the undead in any form or media, but this book went beyond the pale into poor taste and crassness. Hugh Howey's original book, "I, Zombie" is much more sensible, better written, thought-provoking and reasonable, so I gave that tome to my friend. This "Eh, Zombie" I just tore up and recycled, hoping a better use will be found for the execrated paper.
Except for one or two of the characters (they know who they are!) their state of being is tragic, but laced with a lot of humor. It's been weeks since I've read it, and many of them and their situations must have gotten to me more than I realized because they'll pop back up when I least expect it. (zombie meme?)
And aw, the kangaroo. :-(
Definitely worth reading if you're up for some zombie 'fun'. Altho I think it helps a little to have read the other book, cuz I have no idea what was going on - rather, why -- when I got to the end.
