Product description

Zom-B is a radical new series about a zombie apocalypse, told in the first person by one of its victims. The series combines classic Shan action with a fiendishly twisting plot and hard-hitting and thought-provoking moral questions dealing with racism, abuse of power and more. This is challenging material, which will captivate existing Shan fans and bring in many new ones. As Darren says, "It's a big, sprawling, vicious tale...a grisly piece of escapism, and a barbed look at the world in which we live. Each book in the series is short, fast-paced and bloody. A high body-count is guaranteed!"

There's no other way to describe this book. If you want a book about zombies, buy another book. This book is about 10% about zombies and 90% pure racism. I get it, we're supposed to hate the dad because he's a racist bully who beats his wife and kid, but how does that condone the kid bullying kids of other ethnicities at school? That doesn't make you cool, it's not justified because daddy beats you and still loves you, it makes you a jerk (and that's putting it lightly).

I'm burning this book, I won't give it to a library or a charity because I don't want to encourage anyone else reading it. It made me angry, and I have no desire to EVER read anything else Darren Shan has written.
