    First, thank you for the signed copy through Goodreads Secondly, my rating lies between 3 3.5 it could have been a 4 but the Zombification threw me off I m not saying I don t like the Zombie stuff, I do, but not in the combination how the story goes Just like the other reviewer, I got into this book because of the title I admit, I have never read anything like this book Initially, theI looked at the title, theI became judgmental and not like it It is very odd, weird, sarca First, thank you for the signed copy through Goodreads Secondly, my rating lies between 3 3.5 it could have been a 4 but the Zombification threw me off I m not saying I don t like the Zombie stuff, I do, but not in the combination how the story goes Just like the other reviewer, I got into this book because of the title I admit, I have never read anything like this book Initially, theI looked at the title, theI became judgmental and not like it It is very odd, weird, sarcastic, and hilarious but it does point out the issues in our society which are becoming a norm such as teenage sex, drugs, de humanizing or bullying others, and most importantly, the absence of parenting The desires of having sex and sleeping with as many people while connections, emotions, love and marriage are put on the back burner, is the theme of the story What does all of this have to do with the title of the book Well, if you read it, then you will find out at the end, and that does make sense Scott Erikson s unique way of ridiculing society is pretty true Think about teenage pregnancies, prostitution, committing crimes, joining gangs, the availability of illicit drugs, single parenting or none at all, no morals or ethics are all prime examples of our society when we turn a blind eye and move on Erikson s various topics highlight education, the future, the meaning of life and humanity and these I truly enjoyed.During a conversation among the protagonist Janet and her dream lover Sven,Sven, why do you look so pensive Huh What does that mean Then the next sentence you see is a note,Editor s Note We thought sopg 63Guess what Even I have to look it up for the meaning So I guess the editor s note is true In a confrontation scene among the characters, author Erikson describes the scene as an oldWestern movieLike, when a hero cowboy is approaching a gang of lawless thugs and a gun fight is about to break out Erikson s humor is seen throughout the story which is based in Minnesota yet he compares it toWestern movieswhich are usually played in Colorado or Wyoming, so why don t they call itNorthernand notWesternpg 85Three things I would like to critique on the book One, there are some mistakes with punctuation and wrong names saying wrong sentences maybe the author did that on purpose Two, I didn t really like the fish stuff it should be like video games and TV Three, the zombiness, yet it makes sense only at the end Though I enjoyed the Swedish accent dialogues I m not sure how that ties into Minnesota I would like to readof Erikson s books and I also recommend this book to mature adults and humor lovers

    The book had an intreging title So I read it Somehow I missed the fact that it was a satire Then about a third of the way through the book I had an epiphany It was a good book SO dumb it couldn t help but be good Nice easy quick read about a girl with a Mormon dad who was turning into a zombie and then was sent off to camp Meets a boy falls in love Oh yeah best passage in the book is as follows.Page 65 Suddenly, some strange feeling came over Janet She began shaking, then drool formed o The book had an intreging title So I read it Somehow I missed the fact that it was a satire Then about a third of the way through the book I had an epiphany It was a good book SO dumb it couldn t help but be good Nice easy quick read about a girl with a Mormon dad who was turning into a zombie and then was sent off to camp Meets a boy falls in love Oh yeah best passage in the book is as follows.Page 65 Suddenly, some strange feeling came over Janet She began shaking, then drool formed on her lips In a guttural roar, she shouted, Brains Must have brains then ran straight for the deer, shouting, Brains and making savage clawing motions with her hands.Page 66 Must have brains cried Janet, trying to claw at he deer s head, but just sort of petting it a little too hard, which annoyed the deer.All in all it was a funny story Book was free I will readof this authors books

    I entered to win this book on Goodreads because it looked funny The only way I can think to describe it is absurdist satire, though I m not sure that s a thing or that I m using the correct terms if it is The 4th wall is broken regularly, there is meta humor, and satire of zombie stories and the YA genre It amused me regularly even leading to an occasional giggle or chuckle.
