Garret Weir has just turned seventeen. For any normal teen this would be quite the milestone. But for Garret it’s even more amazing he’s made it to this age, because in Garret’s life the human population of the Earth is gone, changed and turned into flesh hungry zombies, or “necs”, as he calls them. In the world he was born into, except for his parents that have kept him s ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It was a slightly different take on the zombie genre with loads of action, laugh out loud moments and even some tender, tear-jerking scenes. I was sorry to finish the book and I can't wait for the sequel, which I'm assuming there will be because of the way the story ended.

Best book i have ever read. 10/10
This book is about a seventeen year old boy named Garret going through a zombie apocalypse, he has a brother.....but they're closer than they may seem. His little brother Garth is a Zombie, and he's attached to Garret's spine. Find out all the types of zombies and struggles throughout this apocalypse in this book "Little Dead Man".
I wasn't sure If I should rate this because so many people loved the book, and I felt like it's not really *for me* in the first place. I am not a young adult and would not have selected this for myself, but received it in a mystery box of zombie stuff and the reviews were so good. I picked it up to see what the fuss is all about. I'm still not sure, honestly.

I ultimately decided to go ahead with the rating. It's YA and I'm an OA, so at first I thought maybe I just didn't get it. But then I tho

“I’m forced to be insane in this insane world, but by knowing I’m insane it makes me sane.”

Seems legit.

Recently I’m a total sucker for everything that has to do with zombies, so I was very happy to receive “Little Dead Man” from Jake Bible as a review copy.

The reader is immediately thrown into the story, drawn into a world that has ended quite some time ago and which is now populated by zombies, cannibals (ermahgerd that’s quite a brave idea to put cannibals in a story! Hardly ever read about th

I picked this book up at a horror convention mainly because it was free and the idea of a zombie conjoined twin cracked me up. I did not expect to end up devouring it as fast as I could. I did not expect it to be so well written and entertaining, in my experience not many young adult novels are. It's fast paced and easy to read, and just a fun story.

Detailed Review: Don't turn away from reading this review after you've seen the cover. Never ever judge a book by it's cover, haven't you guys heard it before? Though I've done it a couple of times I almost never do that. Unlike my fellow blogger Chloe. It's true! Ask her yourself!

Ok enough of joking. What makes me think this book is so awesome and brilliant. First the action and suspense, it keeps you wanting more. It leav

How do you even go about reviewing something as fantastically amazing as Little Dead Man?
I don't even know what to say. I was completely blown away by how good this book is. I thought for sure it would be a campy sort of funny take on the zombie apocalypse. What I got was funny, but it was also probably one of the best zombie books I have ever read. In my entire life!
Seriously this book is disgusting, funny, action packed, dramatic, all while keeping it pretty PG if I may add.

Loved this book! This book pulls you in from the first chapter, ties you up and doesn't let you go until the last chapter. This story is so well written and the characters so awesome that it left me wanting more, more, more! I simply can't wait until the next one in this series is out.
The only bad thing I have to say about this story is that it took away my sleep, because I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN until I had finished it.
I unloaded the dishwasher, washed the counters, and did countless other chore

Garret Weir has just turned seventeen. That is a big accomplishment because in Garret’s life, the human population of the Earth is gone, changed and turned into flesh hungry zombies, or “necs”, as he calls them. However, he is not the only seventeen year old in the family. He has a undead brother attached to his spine named Garth, and he won’t leave Garret in peace. I guess you could say Garth helped Garret get stronger, because he was out-pacing his dad by the age of 10. Him and his family live ...more

Another Jake Bible story that I could not put down!
Garrett is a fantastic character, along with Garth. Great action, with loads of opponents for this 17year old to face up against. Blood and guts galore, with the possibility of a cure.
The ending gives me hope that there will be another book.

This is one of the best stories I have read of this genre even if it's a YA story. Hope there will be more! This book is different and I loved the story lines. Please follow up with more-more-more!!!!!! Loved it!

I liked the really interesting twist of conjoined half-alive twins. That was different. And weird. I like weird. I didn't like that all the secrets at the end were obviously half formed (unless a sequel is coming) so nothing was really finished. It was just left hanging.

Over the top as usual for the author. Liked the book, too many editing mistakes (misspelled words mainly, like the novel was auto corrected by an Iphone).

A new take on the zombie apocalypse. I loved the Z-Burbia series, and i felt the same way about Little Dead Man. I wish it was a series though. :(

Typical zombie story but the twist is Garrett has a conjoined twin who died at birth, so he is carrying around a zombie baby on his back.
