it was amazing
bookshelves: vampires-and-whatnot

Brains was a refreshing experience for Zombie fiction and it was the best kind of gift from a friend. I got a call saying "I have something for you, I think you'll love it. It would probably make me throw up." This friend, knows me very well. It was the best kind of gift because it was for no reason other than she saw it, thought of me and got it. That alone would've made me love it, but fortunately, I can also love it because it's well-written (yes, you CAN say that about a Zombie book - don't be a snob!)AND it was written by a woman - you go girlfriend!

Cleverly written, humorous and sad at the same time.

"If eyes are windows to the soul, then Marie's soul had left the building."

"Wal-Mart--their people make the difference...and the evening meal."

"The only Homer they knew was Simpson; their favorite beer was Bud Light. Their idea of an art film was The Shawshank Redemption and their wives collected Precious Moments figurines. What could I possibly talk about with them? The Weather?
It was all I could do not to eat them." - proving that even Zombies maintain their dignity and taste, well, most of the time.

"We are a rainbow of decay: Khmer Rouge red, Baghdad blue, gangrene green, bruised-apple brown." - that's just poetic for a zombie novel.

and the absolute best thing I can say about an author - she wasted no words...

in the words of Reading Rainbow - you don't have to my word for it.....
