I'm not really sure what to make of this book. At first, since it was written by Mel Brook's son I thought it would be funny. It wasn't. The author's dead serious. And since there aren't really any zombies, the book started out amusing then became rather dull. He seems to be trying to revise notions of zombies into a more scientific idea rather than just the dead rampaging. (I kind of like the idiopathic etiology of the zombie infection. Ironically, it makes it seem more real and frightening.) And yet, even from a scientific point-of-view, his concepts sometimes does not hold true. There's just no reason to finish it unless you plan to write a zombie novel yourself, then this would be very helpful indeed.
