Three years have passed since the rising of the undead, and life has more or less returned to normal. Zombie encounters are now few and far between. The undead are more of a nuisance than a menace; they are less likely to sink their teeth into unsuspecting civilians than they are to be attacked by vigilantes and rabid lynch mobs. Laws have been passed for the zombies’ own protection, and they are safely and humanely quarantined from society. Dead Rite, an undead management and control firm, suddenly finds itself on the brink of bankruptcy. The zombie population is dwindling and the bills are piling up.

    Meh. Mixed feelings Kudos to the author for a unique perspective on the public's reaction to general zombie presence. At first I felt that this kind of reaction was implausible, but then I stop and look around at our society and see soooo many empty headed people and reactions and think, " Okay, it's plausible." It became a little bit suspenseful near the end as things got out of control, but this was due to the widespread ineptitude of the DeadRite team. And that is what made me shake my head in Meh.

And that is what made me shake my head in frustration. The whole set of motley characters are always drunk or stoned. Is the author aiming at such a target audience? Does he imagine that such an audience will be able to finish this book? Is this the only way that such a story could happen? Through gross negligence? I realize that there is an entire genre of film devoted to such buffoonery, but I tend to avoid such material. This book could have been so much better if the main set of characters weren't so flawed. It is possible for a scenario to go completely to hell, without the actors being so stupid. That being said, I really like how society, through the book, gave zombies citizenship status and rights. Although insane and moronic, that is completely believable.

    Not your typical Zombie book My initial thought was "Another Zombie Post Apocalyptic" book - am I really ready for it? There were a n u Amber of good reviews so I decided to give it a try. I was seriously impressed by how the author wrote a tongue in cheek zombie book when keeping it light, fun, mildly gory, etc. A great romp which caused me to download his two other books. I don't think the author is writing for the money as all three of his books are free. I will immediately start on another and Not your typical Zombie book My initial thought was "Another Zombie Post Apocalyptic" book - am I really ready for it?

I very much enjoyed this book and the writing style. I believe the author to be very talented and hope he continues to write and hopes those reading this mini review take a chance on this author.

    Miles is a young person who has fallen on hard times as a direct result of the zombie infection. Except, it's offensive to use the word zombie nowadays - we refer to them as undead beings. The zombie apocalypse never took off and now they wander around like the large predators people call pest control on. The premise is actually quite refreshing, but the heavy-handed social and political commentary the book is built on is not. The plot only starts to move on in the latter half and even then it's f Miles is a young person who has fallen on hard times as a direct result of the zombie infection.

The plot only starts to move on in the latter half and even then it's filled with snarky, bitter descriptions which are not even Miles' thoughts most of the time.

    This book started off really really REALLY slow and boring. Only half way through did it start to be entertaining and interesting. This book had so much potential, but lacked in many ways. Firstly, a lot of time went into information about the politicians, the rebel groups and even the music. And I do mean, A LOT OF TIME AND PAGES! There were three minor action scenes in the he first half of the book and then one major one at the end. It would have made a big difference if the author added more act This book started off really really REALLY slow and boring. Only half way through did it start to be entertaining and interesting.

It would have made a big difference if the author added more action scenes throughout the book instead of explaining simple things and waisting chapters upon chapters on politicians and music discriptions. The ending wasn't too bad though.

    3 star for the story, 1 bonus star for keeping zombie story fresh. I really like this. Post-zombie apocalypse story written in a way that's quite amusing. The main protagonist is just a regular dudeーI don't think he has a particular point that makes him interesting, but I enjoy the narrative of his behaviors and thoughts. Last few chapters are wrapped up in a hurry, though; as if Allen was afraid he'd be out of blank pages. And it'd be much better if two key "enemies" in the climax chapters are 3 star for the story, 1 bonus star for keeping zombie story fresh. I really like this.

    Hilarious! The zombies are the real problem of society What a great book! The zombies rose around the globe for about three weeks, then everything returned back to normal. But the politicians just couldn’t let it go- lost your job blame it on the zombies, got rotten kids blame it in the zombies, hate your job and became an alcoholic blame it on the zombies! So now we must protect the afflicted it’s not their fault they came down with this terrible illness. The political hijinks is like watch live Hilarious!

    Not exactly a parody... ...but if the shoe fits. The zombie apocalypse was a bit of a flash in the pan. Now companies of zombie (sorry, former human) control companies collect up the undead, and take them to government control facilities, where they are rendered docile. Hippy protesters, gunhappy vigilantes, farkwit politicians, and an entire retirement community that's turned... Not exactly a parody... ...but if the shoe fits.

    I tried. God did I try to like this book but oh my freakin hell, I was soooooo damn bored!!!! Maybe the author meant it as satire, I don't know. Boring. 100% freakin boring and not a single damn character worth their weight in salt. No one at all likable. I spent half the book screaming at the main character to grow some damn balls and evict his worthless, holier than thou roommate and her friends. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ I tried.

    Was not the most exciting book I have read I am not sure but I think the author was trying to be funny most of this story, but it fell short of that mark. It was not a scary zombie story either, in fact it took what seemed forever to get to any kind of action at all, and that was crammed into the end. Not impressed.

    The War on Horror This is so much better than the often read stories of ZOMBIE Apocalypse an there being no end or no suvivors. You will enjoy this new look at Zombies and the people who make their livings by using zombies. I RECOMMEND this excellent read and different take on a favorite topic..ZOMBIES. ENJOY!!

    A pleasure to read I loved the build up of the characters in this book - some humour, some social commentary, some horror - the narrative pace of the story mixed with a dose of cynical irony at the manoeuvres of politicians made this a pleasure to read

    An interesting concept The story had potential but needed more polish and attention to detail. There was too much jumping around and too much time spent trying to justify everything. It had some interesting concepts and potential.

    One big interlocking story Simple character, good and bad. Complex politics no to over whelming, but a back story. Well written and potential for more in this world. Recommended

    I gave up at 25%. The main character appears to be spineless, the other characters are boring and the story drags.

    So much gore A somewhat typical story line but well written. The flow was good however the end feels rushed to reach a conclusion

    This book is a well-written satire of today's society, with zombies (or "former humans") filling in for the poor and marginalized. There's a politician who wants to "take the country back" from the undead. There are religious leaders who say the zombie outbreak was caused by a lack of morals in society. There are protesters fighting for the rights of the "former humans". People aren't supposed to kill zombies.

There's a politician who wants to "take the country back" from the undead. There are religious leaders who say the zombie outbreak was caused by a lack of morals in society. There are protesters fighting for the rights of the "former humans". People aren't supposed to kill zombies. They're supposed to call Undead Management Control (UMC) to come capture them and take them to processing centers. Humans that kill zombies are supposed to be prosecuted, but rarely are (zombies are stand-ins for minorities in today's society). There are conspiracy theories about how the virus started. One man releases some documents from a pharmaceutical company and is prosecuted for possibly preventing a pharmaceutical company from making billions of dollars. Of course, there's social commentary of the rich vs. the poor. "The only good zombie is a dead zombie". Political correctness has run amuck. My favorite idea was that all the movies and TV shows about zombies were actually the government's way of preparing its citizens for how to prepare for a real zombie apocalypse. I could go on, but you should read this book yourself so you can laugh out loud when you see how the author has cleverly weaved a zombie story with the social and political issues of our time. It is hilarious. There's also some zombie stuff, but that is still used as a background for commentary on today's world. If you like satire and you like zombies, definitely get this book. It is smart and witty and completely captures the political climate today.

    Brilliant I am usually really lazy when it comes to writing reviews but I had to leave on for this book. I have read hundreds of zombie books and this is one of my absolute favorites . I love the way it is written and I loved the story.
