I wouldn't have thought I'd ever really enjoy a zombie story; neither the necessary gruesome gore nor the necessary narrative/thematic inevitability of human annihilation hold much appeal for me and don't usually draw me in. But then I happened to love the movie Zombieland, and now this. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a wry, sarcastic, intelligent narrative voice, and that seems to be enough to make any story engaging for me.

And while the ultimate message of Zombieland may resonate with me much more than the one in this book, I was pleased to find that it at least had one. It's meta enough to comment on other zombie books and movies and the social commentary they intend, but it does get around to having its own commentary as well. It has a brain.

Most importantly, though, it has humor. Enough that I was constantly entertained. After all, "the world is terminally bored and we are just a people of insatiable appetites," so anything that can relieve the hunger--or at least distract from it--is something worth enjoying.
