3.0 out of 5 stars A Stocking Filler, 9 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Am Scrooge: A Zombie Story for Christmas (Hardcover)
Out in time for Christmas comes this re-working of a Christmas Carol. WIth London and then the world about to fall prey to a zombie infection Scrooge finds he is the only person immune from the zombie plague. Will Scrooge be the last man standing, or will he and the three ghosts of Christmas manage to alter the inevitable outcome?

With guest appearances by Charles Dickens and H G Wells there are lots of in-jokes referring to books, and some to films. There are loads of puns here, but because there are so many and so many ideas crammed into this relatively short novel it all becomes a bit too chaotic. With sci-fi thrown into the zombir horror mix there is just way too much to take in in one go, ultimately detracting from what could have been something much better. This would have been better if it had been in a longer novel, or even spread over two books.

If you are looking for a humourous book as a stocking filler for Christmas then this may do, it is something to read when you are bloated with too much turkey on the big day and want to put your feet up.
