Publisher's Summary

Warning: Not fit for human consumption
This book contains foul language and fouler descriptions of life as a zombie. It will offend most anyone, so proceed with caution or not at all. And be forewarned: This is not a zombie book. This is a different sort of tale. It is a story about the unfortunate, about those who did not get away. It is a human story at its rotten heart. It is the reason we can't stop obsessing about these creatures, in whom we see all too much of ourselves.

Confused and frustrated

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

What would make this book a 4 or 5 star listen would be if there was a actual story. These are short incomplete stories about a zombie's perspective. I listened to half the book then became so bored and frustrated I quit. None of the stories are interesting.

Note: I only listened to half the book. Perhaps the end is good or the stories all tie in.....I have no idea.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

why you DON'T want to be a zombie!

if you're into the whole zombie genre and are looking for something different, then definitely give i, zombie a listen. the book is broken into 6 parts. the first 5 parts tell the story of people who have become zombies. each part follows 2 or 3 main characters. as they shamble around, looking for fresh meat, they recount parts of their lives. as a zombie, they are fully aware of what they're doing, but they can't stop their bodies. they have no control over their need to feed.

there is a wide assortment of characters with diverse backgrounds. believe it or not, there's a lot of character development in each part. each character is different and has their own unique story to tell. actually, there's a lot of emotion in this zombie book. what do i mean? i felt different emotions from the different stories. to name a few, i felt sadness, disgust, contempt, and believe it or not triumphant.

the narration is excellent. each character has his/her own narrator, who brings the character to life even though they're dead. LOL

the writing is tight. there's nothing i would add nor remove from the story. there is a lot of gore, and the scenes of the zombies feeding are probably the most descriptive, disgusting, an horrifying i've ever read or listened to.

overall, a great and unique addition to my zombie library. so if you're looking for something different, then look no further. this is a great book from the zombie perspective. this is why you don't want to become a zombie!
