Brains: a Zombie Memoir by Robin Becker
Blurbed by Kay, Librarian at Bridgewater Library
This novel was my first venture into zombie literature. To my surprise, I enjoyed the book which contained interesting but bizarre characters, a fast-paced style and a humorous story-line. The plot describes the attempt of a newly-bitten professor to save the zombie population. He is an unusual zombie, one who has retained his self-awareness and intelligence. He undertakes this wild journey with the help of other self- aware zombies attempting to save zombies from the living hunters and obtain a truce for the undead.
The story is ghoulish and contains multiple scenes of cannibalism but that’s just what you would expect from the book’s title.
