'I, Zombie' is a very interesting read and a different take on the zombie genre, its the story of the zombies as opposed to the survivors.

As the characters slowly changed, you experience their thoughts, their feelings and what they now are.

I felt sorry for all the characters. Great read.

Highly recommended.

I'm in two minds about this book. On the one hand it turns the Zombie novel on its head; being written as several parallel threads - each one a sort of "week in the life of a zombie". On the other, it was one of those novels that didn't seem to have a really meaty plot, focusing more on the immediate dilemmas of each undead protagonist. In that sense I suppose it's the most literary zombie novel I've read to-date.

The unfortunate zombies are a little like those suffering from "locked in syndrome" i.e. they are neurologically sound, yet have no control over their bodies. The difference being that, in the novel, their bodies are moving around autonomously, ripping people to pieces and chowing down. And on that note: there's plenty of gore for those with "the hunger", one scene in particular will, I'm sure, come to be labelled as "The office scene". No punches are pulled with regards to who gets eaten, and some interesting, previously unconsidered hygiene issues also come up.

I think, on the whole, it was a good read. I started this morning and I'm now finished - so it obviously gripped me. It is novel and well written - I was just expecting a wee bit more plot.

I think if you like Zombie fiction and fancy a change from the norm - you'll like it. But remember...it's the Zombie's point of view - they don't brandish guns, leap from pillar to post, or decapitate their victims with Samurai swords; they don't have much going for them except a back-story, internal monologue and an insatiable desire for fleeeeeesh.

I just happened upon this book whilst browsing and downloaded it on a whim. So glad I did - because I absolutely love this book.

I was just saying a couple of weeks ago that I'm sort of getting tired of this zombie thing. But this story isn't anything at all like the movies I've seen. As other reviewers have said, this story is told from the point of view of the zombies.

They're locked in: able to see, hear, feel, smell and taste everything they're doing, but with no power over their actions. They're just along for the ride as they shuffle and shamble and feed with relentless hunger on those lucky victims who DON'T manage to get away.

As they greedily feed, they have plenty of time to reflect on their condition, and on their lives before being bit. Their recollections are poignant and harrowing, full of regrets and desperate wishes to be able to go back and do it all over again. Their lives were meaningless and their lives were full of meaning that they failed to appreciate when they were living. Their lives are over and yet they will never end, no matter how much they might wish for it.

I've already bought other books by the same author - never heard of him before today, but now I can't wait to see what else he has written.

After reading zombie novels obsessively for a while, I thought that I was done with the genre. The only reason I bought this book was because it was by an author that I already liked. I'm glad that I did decide to read it.

It doesn't have a main plot that ties all the characters together, but rather focuses more on each character's backgrounds, thoughts and feelings. That doesn't mean that it isn't engaging and suspenseful, however. The story centres on a handful of characters that have been turned into zombies. The twist, however, is that their brains are totally unaffected. They're forced to watch as they kill and devour other humans. They're forced to feel what it's like to walk on broken glass in bare feet and get crippling injuries that do nothing to stop them. They can see, smell, taste and feel every second of it, but can do nothing to influence their bodies.

The events in this book are shocking and disturbing in the best possible way. Hugh Howey doesn't just rely on action, gore and suspense to entertain us (though there is plenty of that, don't worry), but he also finds other ways to get under our skin. There were times when the psychological horror made me recoil just as much as the graphic descriptions of the feedings, if not more so.

I just wish it had a solid main plot. It's great as it is, but I can't help but feel it could be even better if it was fleshed out more and had one big, central story with a beginning, middle and end. It did leave me wanting more, and not in a completely positive way. I would still recommend this book, however, especially to fans of the genre who are look for a fresh perspective.

Fresh from reading the book, I decided I have to pitch in with praise for this outstanding novel in a popular genre. I'll save you a recap of the plot - you can glean it from the other reviews - and simply restrict myself to my own thoughts and experiences.

Having read a number of books on the zombie theme lately (yep, the cold turkey of waiting for "The Walking Dead" to come back demands sating), I have been frustrated on numerous occasions by the cliches, the lack of imagination and thought, the plastic two-dimensional characters and, on many occasions, the absence of any writing skill ("she smashed her hand into the gravel and her hand bled from where it hit the gravel" is just one example).

"I, Zombie", however, delivered exactly what I craved and did so eloquently, creatively, memorably. The writer is definitely not simply a fan retelling a Romero film he'd seen, filling the pages with explosions, clumsy non-sentences, and come-with-me-if-you-wanna-live-style platitudes. There is a style here, language used to convey thought and emotion concisely and accurately, description apt to create scene, image and feeling.

Furthermore, admirably and, undoubtedly, due partly to the premise of the book (the plot being told from zombies' point of view), the author has really thought out the scenario and his characters, paid attention to small detail and added some excellent fine touches. This was certainly important to me as my above-mentioned frustration at other works often comes from niggling and unadressed questions such as: "what happens if a zombie breaks bones?" or "do zombies eat anyone completely or do they stop when they've turned their prey into zombies?" and so on.
