Why is no one making a movie out of this?

...or at least a televised mini-series as a comedic companion piece to AMC's "The Walking Dead?"

This book is hilarious. And the people who will find it hilarious are those that find Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion" hilarious and also enjoy the odd zombie story from time to time.

This is not for those looking for a gritty, gory, zombie apocalypse blood-fest, or for those who don't appreciate satire. The story is more about the people and the personalities in a small town than it is about zombies or survivors toiling in a post-apocalyptic world. Each character is distinct and well-drawn. They have secrets and quirky foibles that more often than not lead them to their doom.

But what makes the audiobook is Phil Gigante. The man is a genius. He's got Garrison Keillor's cadence and raspy-throated storytelling down perfectly.

Keillor fans should not feel insulted. You can tell, both Geillor and Gigante conduct their mimicry out of love and respect.

A very enjoyable audiobook. I've listened to it more than a few times, and it makes me smile every time.

It was worth the gamble!

I wasn't too sure at first of this book at first. I hadn't read any reviews, so I had no idea what I was in for... other than the zombies. I was pleasantly surprise. I haven't laughed out aloud at the antics in a book for a long time. It was definitely worth the token (and the late nights staying up to listen to it).
