I got this book through Goodreads First Reads.

I am not quite sure how I feel about this book. It starts out like your typical "coming of age" book about a 15/16 year old boy who attends Catholic school and is an outsider. He is obsessed with zombie films and applies zombie film rules to his everyday life. He comes from a very dysfunctional family and something weird is going on with his Vietnam Vet dad. Something VERY weird. There are moments when the book is very well written and engaging but then moments where I felt very disconnected from what was happening with the plot. It was a very strange feeling to have while reading the book.

There are some weird sentences and paragraph glitches but then it is an uncopyedited advance copy of the book so by release those should be gone.

I guess the best thing I can say is read it for yourself and see if it is your cup of tea. For me it was interesting but not one of my favorite books.
