REVIEW: Z is for Zombie by Adam-Troy Castro

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars, Genre: Fiction, Pages: 56, Reading Level: Easy

Book Description:

“A stunningly illustrated and hilarious A-to-Z guide that bears witness to the zombie horde as it slowly overruns us. Assemble a motley crew of any survivors you can. Barricade your doors and windows against the relentless shambling masses hungry for your flesh. Grab a hammer, chain saw, clothing iron, or whatever household weapon is at hand…

The war has begun!”

Cute book, if a book about zombies can be called cute. It is just what it claims, an A to Z guide of practical advice. Some of my favorites-

Sure, we’ll run away. But that just makes us fast food. Do you want flies with that?

You’re really going to have to get over being such a priss.

We all have a lot of gooey stuff inside us, and one of the nastier things zombies like to do is pull it out while you watch. You don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of maintaining your dignity at a time like this, so you might as well not try.

Some days, when you’re roaming the streets in search of food, you watch the vacant-eyed, slack-jawed corpses jaywalking their way through eternity and you cannot avoid the hateful conclusion that for all too many of them, not that much has changed.

Obviously, this book is just meant to be funny, and it succeeds. It’s fun. It’s quick. And it reminds you to have several witty and well versed last words in your arsenal so as you are being devoured, you will be remembered as saying, “I hope you choke on me,” rather than “Take the child first!”
