If you're looking for a zombie story that claws around in your mind and makes you think about the choices you make in your very alive state, look no further than this!

Instead, he has to choose which door to enter and see what his future holds. He picks the right door and comes back as a zombie. Luke wakes up next

Good storyline

Downloaded this book as thought the storyline looked good. It never disappointed me. Although less than 200 pages the book never felt like it. Will read more from this author

I cannot tell you on how many levels I love this book. The title. The first-person self-deprecating quips. The attention to detail (which is anything but boring). Fabulous stuff. Here's a brief extract to illustrate my point:

"For now, I can probably pass for just being sick, if I can get my coordination together and get out of here.

With that objective in mind, I lurch to my feet and fall flat on my face, luckily with one arm preventing my nose from getting smashed. Not that it hurts, but I real

Zombies. Right after teen dystopian tales, I can't tell you how many zombie stories I've read, especially since The Walking Dead got popular. By rights, zombies are murderous undead who have no coherent thoughts except for "Brains...". Right? Wrong. Not in Restless In Peaceville.
You start the book in the afterlife itself, with Luke being told that, because he committed suicide, he couldn't go to Heaven or Hell. Very Catholic reasoning there. So he gets sent back to his dead body. He's coherent,

WOW! I was delightfully surprised by this not so average zombie tale! Pippa Jay takes what we know about zombies and flips it around! This intriguing tale is told from the perspective of, well...a zombie! It's a brilliant plot that allows the reader to engage in more than guts and brains, and endless violence. Luke is the main character, and the story is told from his POV. Annabelle, another zombie, is his sidekick, and she is adorable! Their inner turmoil of what they've become really moves the ...more

Pros: This was a wonderful story, with a unique spin on zombies. I got engrossed in the characters and suspense and couldn't put it down.

Cons: I happen to love paranormal fiction, so I'm happy with supernatural characters of all kinds. If you're strictly into zombies, though, then you might not like the additional kinds of paranormal beings in this book.
