5.0 out of 5 stars is that my brain in your mouth?, 4 Oct. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zombies and Shit (Paperback)
I knew nothing of Bizarro movement until recently and ordered this along with Edward Lee'sCarnal Surgery Both books are mad and brilliant.
For me this Zombies and... was a good starting point. A bunch of diversely different 'people' (some human,some not-so-much) including the genius involvement of the terminator version of Mr T are drugged and wake up on an island, given a weapon and told that only one person can survive and escape within a certain amount of time and that it will all be filmed for television. So far, so 'Battle Royale'. But, unlike those kids, this group not only has to fight each other but also zombies,loads of zombies. These are old-skool zombies for the most part but just because they move slow doesn't make them any easier to avoid, in fact they're almost impossible to kill e.g decapitated heads still roll around snapping at ankles and groaning.It's to the credit of the writer that each character we meet is believable,you may not like some of them and hope they die and be guiltily gleeful when something disgustingly terrible happens to them or you may really like them and hope they live even though you know they probably wont. Mellick sets the scene vividly, flicking into the past to reveal the histories of not only the enigmatic characters but the post-apocolyptic world they came from where the poor people have to die to entertain the rich and not just die but get torn to bits and munched on and then thats still not enough to keep up the t.v. ratings.There's some social dissection here which adds weight to the witty,tar-black funny,gross-out thrills. The pace never slackens,the plot never releases its choke-hold and, like the characters,you never know what horrid scene is evolving around the corner that you'll have to deal with next. A must for any zombie fan with a brain (yours or someone else's if your desperate) Enjoy.Thank you.The Bizarro Starter Kit (Orange)If you liked this book,try that.
