BOOK REVIEW: Love and Zombies

love&zombiesWhat starts off as a mad plan to capture a live zombie, soon turns into three mad and crazy days. Love and Zombies is only a short book, but does it deliver the same punch as a normal length novel?

The zombie apocalypse has already ended. The government nipped the problem in the bud before it got out of hand. But now Henry, an aspiring filmmaker in Los Angeles, is getting a request from his old friend Sam Kranson. Sam Kranson says they need to go run an errand in Las Vegas. There’s a hefty payday for the job. And it involves capturing a real live zombie.But that can’t be true, can it?

Are there zombies out there in the Nevada desert? Or has Sam Kranson finally lost his mind? And more importantly: Will Henry’s loving girlfriend Teresa strangle him if he goes on this adventure with Sam?Part horror, part comedy, all madness and suspense, Love & Zombies is a lunatic burn through three days in the life of Henry—days in which he battles to stay alive, and get back to his love without becoming (un)dead.

Henry is trying to have a normal life with his girlfriend Teresa, however that all goes out of the window when his crazy old buddy Sam calls with a job offer – bag a live zombie (don’t ask what for) and get a bucket load of cash for it. Easy right? Well first of all they have to determine if there are any zombies still left, and if so, how do you bring it back without becoming one of the undead in the process? Follow Henry across three mad adrenaline filled day to find out.

Love & Zombies may not be a huge story but I think that is one of the best things about it, as the story isn’t dragged out through lots of pages, until you become bored. You are dropped right in at the beginning of Sam’s mad plan, and what follows is s fast and never-ending ride, with Henry first trying to get a zombie, then getting back to Vegas without getting killed.

I love this short and sweet story, which has great characters. The fact that the author has been able to write and awesome story with characters that you can get behind and in less than 100 pages, and all without feeling rushed says a lot about his skill as a writer.

A great book to while away a few hours, and the perfect subject matter with the nights now starting to draw in.
