Several months ago, I convinced myself that the entire zombie genre had reached the point of saturation. Countless zombie eBooks clutter literary cyberspace. Much to my surprise, the cover of Christian Zombie: A Tale of Sin and Redemption attracts me…and to my relief, it turns out to be one of the best zombie texts available in Indie format.
While not that familiar with peripatetic Zombies, I admit that Janovy’s book is uniquely enlightening and maddeningly humorous. The author develops a lively, if not lovely, cast of characters that inhabit places from Peru to Nebraska and a few unlikely places in between.
Janovy cares enough about his reader, to present a well thought-out and polished text. His hero has investigative and analytical qualities, and enthralls the reader with data about ghost train rides and visits to holy and unholy grounds.
If you’re looking for an eBook that’s written with a refreshingly unique point of view, and a read that’s worth every penny of the purchase price go no further; you’ve found such a book with this one, Christian Zombie: A Tale of Sin and Redemption.
