At a $1.99 for the electronic edition, I could not pass up Scott Kenemore’s Zombie, Ohio. Written from the perspective of a newly undead zombie who retains his intelligence, but not his memory, the story is lively and believable. Humor was prevalent but could have happened a bit more frequently.

The fun of living with Peter as a zombie hit a wall when the author spent far too long with internal monologues. Not to mention the chaos of the occasional ten dollar word thrown in. Maybe his use of palaver should have been an indication. It may have been witty but the uncommon words broke the flow of the book repeatedly.

This is a book you can put down. I put it down and read other things several times. It is a fun read but slow at times. You will go back to find out what happens. It just will not compel you to do so immediately.

The pace can be slow but you get a love interest, mystery, and personal discovery all rolled into one book — with humor. If you like zombie material, you’ll enjoy the book. If you don’t, you may want to pass.
