A Comedy Sci-Fi Like No Other! Where Zombies are your friends and only occasionally eat brains.
In a future where zombies are equals, Roy Tubbs and his recently deceased zombie friend Kurt ‘Mac’ MacReady are fed up with their dead end jobs as an accountant and lifeguard respectively.
Drunkenly deciding to use their savings and Mac’s recent insurance claim they go on a once in a life time road trip. Though not all goes as planned as they delve into the fragile, flaky world of zombie politics. With kidnappings, strange abominations and an ill-fated opportunity to save every zombie on earth.
In the racial tag game, it’s the turn of the zombies. Scientists created an antidote for death. Everybody that can come back is coming back thanks to this. And yeah, not everybody is eating brains – personally this was confusing for me. I mean what kind of self respecting zombie are you? *wink wink*
Roy is tired of his job and his recently zombified friend feels the same way. They decide on a road trip and then the things that happens between friends whose life have changed a little too much happen.
It was nice to read a different kind of zombie story, but it was also a little … strange. Not the bad kind of strange, but it’s like I could not really pinpoint what the real story was supposed to be. There was a lot happening, so it wasn’t boring, but I think that everybody would get a different viewpoint reading this book. Which is not a bad thing.
