Publisher's Summary

High school nobody Kenan is doing just fine in the midst of the zombie apocalypse, thank you very much, but when his dream girl Katy comes stumbling around the corner, she turns his world upside-down. David Wood's first foray into young adult fiction is an action-packed horror tale laced with dark humor and even darker thrills.


What the Critics Say

"Wood paints a horrific scenario of a world in ruin and a few survivors struggling to find safe havens and a reason to carry on. Powerful and disturbing by turns, with plenty of black humor along the way. The Zombie-Driven Life is a great read." (Alan Baxter, author of RealmShift)
"The Zombie-Driven Life is a fast-paced, zombie story that manages to be thoughtful, humorous, and surprising while giving zombie fans everything they love about the genre-gore, desperate situations and a big body count. The perfect book to devour in a single day." (Jeremy Bishop, author of Torment)

A good short story

This was an enjoyable short story, obviously the title lets you know that it is set in the zombie apocalypse. It has a touch of everything you want from a short story, details, action, romance, drama and an explanation. Jeffrey Kafer does a good job, this is the first YA book I've heard him narrate and he didn't disappoint.

Surprisingly uplifting!

This is the story of Kenan, a high school "nobody" who is trying to discover his purpose in life after a zombie apocalypse ends the world as he knows it. Loosely modeled after The Purpose Driven Life, Kenan struggles to redefine his world and answer life's toughest questions, all while battling to stay alive. Along the way he encounters danger, friendship, love, sacrifice, death and, of course, a lot of zombies!

Despite its dark theme, this story is humorous and surprisingly uplifting. You will find yourself rooting for Kenan as he comes of age in a very troubled world. The only reason I rated the story four stars instead of five is because the plot feels a little hurried and would benefit from more development. The narration is very well done, bringing Kenan in all of his youthful self-doubt to life.

If you are a fan of young adult novels and zombie tales in the vein of The Walking Dead, you will enjoy this story. At just under three hours, it is a short, action-packed, enjoyable listen.
