[Review] - Zombies for Zombies

Title: Zombies for Zombies
Author: Daniel P. Murphy
Genre: Humor
Year: 2009

I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.

Summary: So.... You’ve been bitten by a zombie. Bummer.

But there's no need to panic! Yes, your life will be undergoing a major transformation, but this doesn't have to be the end-all it once was when the Disaster first hit. There have been significant breakthroughs in the last decade in helping you keep significant parts of your wit and dignity. Together we can limit the damage.

Zombies for Zombies is a motivational guide designed specifically to make a profound difference in your accidental, strange new life. You say you don't want to become another one of those ghastly creatures you see on the news out in the Tempe Containment Zone? You don't have to—if you follow the great advice inside, including:

* How to dress for your new lifestyle

* Handy recipes for brains

* Fitness ideas for keeping you somewhat energetic

* New skin-care techniques to help ward off "rotting flesh syndrome"

* How to overcome that darned zombie social stigma

* Dance steps for the motor-impaired

Completely Revised and Updated Since the Containment Zone Disaster!

Thoughts: Zombie for Zombies is a how-to-book and advice book, to living as a Zombie. A must for anyone who has been recently bitten. I'll be the first to admit I'm not a huge zombie fan. But if you add in a bit of snark, a little bit of humor then I'm good to go. Which is exactly what I found in Zombies for Zombies, I thought it was hilarious! This book holds all sorts of information that is vital to a zombie. From behavior, to grooming, stories of success and even tips to spice up your zombie sex life. Not to be missed! With the popularity of the paranormal I wonder if this book will spawn other books such as Vampires for Vampires or Werewolves for Werewolves?? ;)

Score: 4 Stars

  1. Haha, I wanna read how you can spice up your zombie zex life ;)
    Sounds like a truly fun book

  2. Anna,

    That is hilarious!!! I can't wait for this one. LOL


  3. I had this one in my hand yesterday and put it back on the shelf - darn it! Nice review.

  4. This sounds brilliant. :-D I definitely think they should make a whole range of books for all the supernatural creatures. I'd buy them all. :-D

  5. This looks like one of the better zombie humour books out there. I'd like to see a series too.

  6. I'm like you, not to big on zombies either but this looks like a fun, entertaining read.

  7. I'm not crazy for zombies but this is very, very funny as a parody of self-help books. I've spent thousands of dollars on self-help books (to no avail) and this is the first one that was actually useful --- at least I got a good laugh!
