Reanimation of Edward ShuettAnother book from the Zombie Book of the Month list. I’d never come across it, but the blurb online sounded quite unusual so I thought I’d give it a go.

Wow, I’m so glad I did. What a great book and a more unusual take on a zombie novel.

The book starts off 50 years on from the Zombie Uprising. The USA has started to recover well and the cities are thriving again. Outside of the cities it’s still a different story. In 50 years, the zombies haven’t died, they have continued to mill around. Some of these small towns still collect zombies and have their own local zombie games. Edward is rounded up by a couple of these ‘collectors’.

The last thing Edwards remembers is a BBQ on the 4th of July and a zombie attack on his family. He has no memories of the last 50 years, but he can now think and talk and feel.

Some people react to him with horror, after all, he is still a zombies and a talking zombie is even more scary. Some want to capture him and experiment on him and try to turn him into a weapon. Whereas some people are simply curious and can see the human behind the zombie.

It really is a well-written story with well-rounded and interesting characters. As the book progresses, Edward’s story unfolds and he build relationships with many of the key characters. There’s also plenty of action, as there is a race across country when he goes on the run.

If you are a bit bored with the plethora of run of the mill zombies books and want something a little bit different, then this is the book for you – enjoy!
