Zombie Walkabout. Where the dead give you a reason for living!

I have read many zombie novels, so I was hesitant reading this, would it be like every other zombie book?

The answer is no! This story was very pioneering for the genre. The idea of a business that specializes in taking tourists out into the outback to kill zombies ( bash ZB’’s) is interesting and funny.

It felt like it was a throwback to game hunters of old, while I don’t like the idea of that in general this was a way to get that Safari feel and not feel sorry for the “animals.”

The zombies weren’t particularly scary, but I am tired of the traditional raaaaawwwr zombie stuff, anyway.

The MC Sam, wasn’t a complex character, but he was a likeable one. The story really picks up when Sam decided to sign on with the company, though I did find the story a little slow throughout.

While funny, this is a darker book with strong language (I don’t mind that) and had a surprising love story, while also being almost a coming of age tale.

I found the writing good, the plot interesting, and unique. Also the cover art is great!  If you like zombie books and especially zombie video games I highly recommend it.
