Kwesi 章英狮 I have a friend who owned this book for so long and I wanted to read it since Christmas, I'm not sure if this book is worth reading.

mark monday yes, it definitely is!

Bandit I thought WWZ was a five star read and this is definitely a five star review. So clever :)

mark monday thanks Bandit. i think the only things that makes it less than 5 stars for me are the two sequences set in japan. they are well-written but they are also strangely stereotypical, at least to me. it is a minor thing overall in what is an awesome novel, but i only like to give the full monty to novels that i had no issue with from beginning to end. but who cares about the star system anyway, its all so subjective!

Bandit I hear you, I think I've been a bit lax and overly generous with my ratings lately, although one of them apparently upset a writer so much, she de-friended me on HA.

Bandit wendy potocki's Horns of September...mind you I really wasn't being mean, I was actually going for kindness (since I'd won a book) and honesty, but I guess it didn't come across

Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly i'm disappointed. no dog meat on the menu yet.

I didn't think it was. I started it and made it about 100 pages before I decided that the book was never going to get good. The best thing about WWZ was that I was able to get a couple of bucks for it at the used book store.

Miriam It isn't possible to make reanimated rotting meat sound scrumptious, but you come close!
