Isn't that the advice they give all writers? I got this to see if Ryan inherited his mom's talent. It isn't a bad book but it is NO classic. The writer can't decide if he is going for horror, drama, or dark comedy so goes for all three towards the end thus diluting one of which might have made this book a bit more of a classic rather than a novelty. Anything to do with zombies is hard to take as "serious literature" so this is a fun little story about a small town stuck on football which I suppose Ryan played in high school. (I saw Ryan Brow in an online video and he seemed the right size to have played at one time.) Only time will tell if he is a "one hit wonder" having exhausted the two things that heavily figure in our current popular culture. He writes well enough. Just don't expect GREAT hilarity or GREAT drama but it did manage to hold my attention well enough just to see how it all turns out. The dark humor is funny, the sporting spirit is true and, with Brown there has to be a love story. Again...don't expect much or wait for a sale.

At the beginning, Brown's exposition is so awkward and heavy-handed that I literally rolled my eyes. His storytelling improves as the book progresses, but I stopped caring about the characters early on. That said, I've continued to listen just to see how we wraps up the story.
