It's the end of the world and zoms (zombies) are everywhere. The small community of survivors in Mountainside leads a strange new existence. To protect yourself from zoms, you need to wear cadavering (which smells as bad as it sounds) and to sleep safe at night you need to lock yourself into your room (or to keep others safe, as if you die in your sleep, you're turned into a zom automatically). In the midst of it all is orphan Bennie Imura, who lives with his big brother Tom, a famous bounty hunter. Bennie thinks his brother is a wimp. After all, Charlie Pinkeye and the Motor City Hammer are tough guys-- they talk gleefully about the zoms they kill while Bennie's brother would rather not kill a zom. But... Bennie's point of view changes completely after becoming an apprentice bounty hunter with Tom. The two head out into the Great Rot and Ruin and amazingly find reason for humanity among all of the death and decay. This book was great on audio. I HIGHLY recommend it to all zombie and/ or horror lovers.
