(Barry’s score 4 1/2 stars out of 5)
“I Saw Zombies Eating Santa Claus” by S.G. Browne is the follow-up to “Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament”. Having said that, I really don’t think that you need to read “Breathers” to enjoy “I Saw Zombies Eating Santa Claus”.
I enjoyed the satire and the heart-warming story. All too often, the book gave me that deep dark chuckle that so many of my friends and family find amusing and somewhat disturbing. The zombies remind me of the type that you will find in “Zombie Housewives of the Apocalypse” or “Zombie Housewives of the 1960’s”.
I really enjoyed the book and it should be perfect for the zombie fan. Zombies and Christmas, who knew?
The book is wonderful, I really enjoyed it. It’s a great title for those of us who lament the end of Halloween each year. I give it a solid 4 1/2 stars out of 5.
How does the leader of a failed zombie civil rights movement from California rescue a group of his undead brethren and help a lonely Breather girl as he hides from a band of medical researchers while disguised as Santa Claus?
If you’ve never believed in Christmas miracles, then you wouldn’t understand.
Andy Warner has just escaped from a zombie research facility in Portland, Oregon, where he’s been subjected to experimental testing for the past year. With Christmas just days away, Andy figures that donning a jolly old St. Nick costume to throw off his would-be captors is just the ticket. But he never expects to encounter a sweet, lonesome nine-year-old girl who not only reminds Andy of the family he’s lost but who thinks he’s the real Santa. He also doesn’t count on being recognized as last year’s national quasi-celebrity by a clandestine group of decaying supporters who look to him for leadership. For the living and the undead, this unforgettable holiday tale will truly put on display just who is gnawing and who is nice. . . .
