John has just been dumped by his girlfriend because he’s too self-obsessed. He has few friends. Worked in finance, until the meltdown and is now basically sat on his bum with nothing to do. When he does a favour for a someone and they drive to his house they accidently run over a man in an alleyway. When they discover that he is both already dead and also still moving John is drawn into the usual zombie apocalypse story development. However that is all well-trodden so Hook decides to go off-piste and treats us to something a little different, something a bit more intelligent and interesting. This is a very brief book, novella length really, and effective because it doesn’t feel the need to belabour the point.

Overall – Interestingly philosophical take on the zombie genre, something a little different ( )

Since it was a shorty I read this one first and ok, I admit it, it was a hoot. Proper Romero shuffling zombies, conforming to all the delicious stereotypes. The story revolves around John, who just got dumped for thinking the world revolves around him to. He finds himself getting drawn into increasingly difficult zombie problems.

Ok but then it gets a little, Sophies World. There are hints and strange comments all through and at that point if I tell you any more we get into spoiler territory.

All I can say then, is it's worth a read, amusing, a little surprising, a little philosophical and very entertaining. ( )
