Despite having the word “Zombies” in the title, this novel is far from your typical zombie fare. If you’re looking for a brain munching gore-fest, you may want to look elsewhere.
On the other hand, if you’re familiar with the Billy Wilder directed film-noir, The Lost Weekend, based on Charles R. Jackson’s 1944 novel of the same name about an alcoholic writer, then you’re in for a real treat.
