Breathers: A Zombie's Lament

If you've been reading my blog, you all now I LOVE vampire related things but now I have a new fixation, Zombies! How did it happen? Well, two weeks ago, I was browsing through the vampire table filled with Twilight and Southern Vampire Mysteries books at Strand and I came across this book, Breathers: A Zombie's Lament by S.G. Browne. It looked appealing judging by its cover, so I read the back and a minute later- impulse buy.

So what is it about? In a society that no longer considers zombies as humans, Andy Warner feels lost and frustrated. He wakes up and discovers that he has reanimated after a fatal car crash that kills his beloved wife and leaves him unable to speak. Because he stinks, his parents move him to the wine cellar to isolate him. To seek haven, Andy attends an undead anonymous support group and uses a dry erase board hanging from his neck to interact with fellow zombies. He meets Rita, his future love interest who is a 20 something year old stitched-up suicide victim that eats lipstick to stop herself from decomposing and Jerry, a porn addict and stoner who becomes Andy’s closest friend. Through trials and tribulations they find comfort within each other and go through an unforgettable and quite hilarious journey. Gore, humor, love, friendship, zombie barbecues, shampoo consumption, venison for eats, hanging flesh, and civil rights … a great quick read that only took me two days! Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament is a MUST read so buy it now! Who knew Zombies can be funny too?

Also check out this spoof ad from a zombie anti-depressant called NECROBUFRIN promoting the book. Hilarzz!
