...it's a comedy, not in modern sense comedy, but classical comedy, like Dante's Divine Comedy, which is as bleak if not bleaker, like an ancient Greek's comedy where you pits two group of people or society in an amusing conflict in very dramatic irony to provoke laughter.

It's a Virlyce story. The world building is great, there is humor, things never get too dark or tragically edgy. What more is there to say ? Read it and enjoy!!!

I really like that book, it was my daily dose of pure logic, it was extremely refreshing to see our society from such a point of view, I reaalllyyy encouraging people to read it, if they aren't scared by different point of view that the mainstreams ones, if you aren't discussed by not realy humain MC and have seen a looottt of internet

A Good Premise Wasted

Style: The zombie’s inner thoughts pervade much of the story. I liked how this was written; although, the content of the thoughts left much to be desired (started out promising, stagnated after). Besides the blocks of narration from the zombie MC, we follow a group of humans combatting zombies and the infected. Perhaps if the zombies thoughts were written like dialogue, it would’ve made it less like a ramble or train of comprehension/thinking and instead more engaging. At this point, the humans were much more interesting to follow. So better balancing between the zombie blocks and human dialogue could’ve been beneficial.

Grammar: Fine enough.

Story: Until chapter 7, it’s just a zombie basically eating flesh. Lovely. At 7 and various points until chapter 23 when I stopped, the humans plight was introduced and delved into more. Their sections of the story soon became more interesting than the zombie’s. At first, a zombie MC was intriguing, especially its thoughts which made him somehow arrogant and quickly unlikable. I expected this to be a sort of “Warm Bodies” movie plotline after hearing that this zombie was different from the rest. But nah, this zombie is just doing it’s own thing which is basically finding whatever it can eat to survive. The promise in the synopsis of finding the meaning of life is missing after the firat chapter or so in. Maybe it’ll come up eventually. I have a feeling it will. But it’s taking too long of a time where all this gorging of flesh and smacking of metal rods gets old.

Character: The zombie MC narration becomes boring and repetitive quick. What could’ve been a great coming to enlightenment about the world or becoming humanized was left sorrily in the dust. At this point, no MC development is really made. Even though we don’t see as much of the humans thoughts, their struggles/actions were more interesting. One very minor detail to add. Jen, Joe, James. Why the heck do their names all start with J? It momentarily confused me at times since the names are so similar. It’s not a biggie, but it’s somewhat of an odd (minor) pet peeve that I didn’t realize I had until now.

Overall: If you want to read several chapters (though each is somewhat short) of a zombie strolling around to find things to eat plus a few panicked humans who seem to slowly become more of a story focus, then go right ahead and read for at least 20 chapters before you feel like you’re getting somewhere. The prospect is interesting, but the potential gets lost. Perhaps later on it’ll pick up into something substantial, but I’m not going to drag myself through another 40 chapters to get there.

Dark. So damn dark.

It's dark. I thought I can go through with it but nope. The story is great. However it is sending chills to the depth of my soul. Constant consumption of human, torture of dying people. If you think youycou stand dark stories, you have not seen this one. 

That being said it's a great story reflecting our treatment of animals, fragility of society and the will to do what ever it takes to live even if it kills.
