Yes, that is exactly how I would classify this book – Zombies meets Scooby Doo.
I mean, when you’re main bad guy is a denture-wearing zombie, what else can you say? That being said, this book is definitely meant for adults only. The Zee brothers have quite a mouth on them so be prepared for some language. But that’s not the only reason. It really would be a shame for such references as the Zee Brothers’ phone number (888-867-5309 . . . just try to read that without humming) to be lost on those who weren’t part of the 80’s!
I really had no idea what I was getting into with this book. My experience with zombies is confined to the first few seasons of the Walking Dead (before it turned into a gory show that no longer has any moral obligations to its viewers) and that movie . . . what is it? Warm Bodies? I am not a fan of gore or blood and guts so I usually steer clear of zombies. But, when I started listening to this audiobook, I spent the first chapter in tears because I was laughing so hard.
The Zee Brothers are hilarious. Think: Rednecks meet Ghostbusters. That’s what I envisioned. Their banter had me cracking up at times. Then you add in J.J. and her incredibly mysterious dog, Xanadu, and I was amazed that zombies could be so lighthearted.
Yes, while this is still a zombie book, I picture Scooby and some rednecks, big guns, and a crazy little dog that I’m still not sure about. If you can handle the zombie part, I definitely recommend this book. It is a very entertaining read 🙂
The narration for this book was perfect. In portraying the Zee brothers the way he did, Ian McEuen gave this book that extra edge. The pacing was great and I found myself really enjoying each minute of this book. This is a narrator I will definitely be checking out again soon.
That’s all for now 🙂
