Smashwords book reviews by Michelle DePaepe

  • Zombie Nights on Dec. 22, 2010

    I checked this book out since it was popular, and I've also just written a zombie story. I liked most of Zombie Nights, though it wasn't an action-packed tale like I had hoped to read. On the plus side, it was a quirky twist on the zombie theme and had good characterization. As I was reading it, I couldn't help but think that waking up as a zombie and relearning how to 'live' must be quite a lot like a stroke victim going through rehabilitation. I liked some of the cheeky humor that offset some of the somber nostalgia as the story went on. The ending was a surprise, but also a little disappointing.
