3.5 stars.

I have a slight obsession with anything and everything related to zombies. I especially love The Walking Dead, and T.W. Brown's Dead series. Even though I don't really care for short stories most of the time, I decided to give The Zombie Playground by Astrid Yrigollen a try. Every now and then, I will read a short story when I need a small break in between chapters of a longer book. I'm glad I picked up The Zombie Playground.

While I didn't enjoy all of the short stories, I did like t

I will read all sorts of short story compilations , each story from a different author. I love to read the different 'voices',themes and styles.I love zombie stories, I love love stories. So even though there was not much of description for this book I got the paper back and was glad I did.

This compilation stands out to me since it was done by one author. I really enjoyed how each story was told from a different perspective in a different setting.

My two favorites were 'The Zombie Eaters' about

Astrid has put together a delightful yet somewhat dark collection of short stories. Each story is an interesting take on our world and the secret monsters that dwell within it. The author has a fresh writing style that keeps you engaged the entire time you are reading. This compilation offers the reader a chance to acknowledge the complexity behind every monster. Some monsters like the ones in her short story

As I have mentioned before I raid my brothers zombie book shelf on occasion. I can't say I really like survival type books where the other option is having your brains eaten but sometimes I do like to be scared,mildly.
The cute little Tim Burton like cover was what drew me in . While this book did not scare me like say the movie Dawn of the Dead did, Astrid Yrigollen does a good job at putting a meat fresh spin on rotting flesh and werewolves and monsters.

Great little compilation. I enjoyed When Zombies Sleep a lot. I could really see myself in Skunkman's shoes. I also enjoyed the other stories a lot. Astrid seems to be able to create interesting new worlds like in Symer's Secret. I would recommend this for anyone that is 14 years old and up due to the mild violence in Raska. Great read!! I look forward to more from Astrid.
