  • Ed Undead: The Chronicles of a Teenage Zombie on March 28, 2013
    (no rating)
    Zombies, hmm, when I first started reading the book, I expected nothing else that chasing, some action, one person who is very powerful, just chasing, killings and blah-blah. I thought there was nothing else that can be done with the topic like zombies and vampires which either have 1 variety or is used it the same way over and over again, or the other. My mind and outlook was so narrow about this topic, may be because the recent movies with different names and almost same story made it that way, my expectations were 0. So i started reading in that perspective. By as I kept on going further, i was surprised, shocked, and moved in every way possible. Unlike other “so much similar” movies, this book was very different. While reading I went through a mixture of emotions, first of all shock, then sad moments, romantic moments, and the moments when you have to make THE hardest choice in your entire life time and most importantly keep pushing even when there is very less hope. I won’t deny the fact that there was no chasing, human flesh eating zombies, and a little(not so little) bloodshed, but the point that there are so many questions that would arise while reading the book overshadows all the other common stuff. Why is Ed still a half zombie? Who was this HE that wanted him? Mostly it showed how the life of a teenager would be affected when everything he knew around him was gone, which I think most people neglected. I would say it was “the best” zombie book I ever read!
