Description

"A witty and unexpected take on the zombie genre; I had a great time."
--Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels



Subtitled "A Zombie Memoir," Brains looks at America's favorite walking-dead flesh-eaters from an audaciously original and deliciously gruesome new perspective. Debut author Robin Becker blazes new ground with this story of former college professor-cum-sentient zombie Jack Barnes, who recounts the tale of the resistance he organized in the wake of the recent zombie apocalypse. World War Z; Shaun of the Dead; Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies... Becker tops them all with Brains--a witty, tasty treat for anyone who every spent a midnight glued to a classic George A. Romero zombie epic!

Review quote

"Witty and clever, Brains is a thinking zombie's book about what it means to be human, or almost human, and what we all owe each other whether we like it or not."--David Wellington, author of Monster Island

Back cover copy

College-professor-cum-zombie Jack Barnes is a different breed of undead--he can think. In fact, he can even write. And the story he has to tell is a truly disturbing--yet strangely heartwarming--one.

Convinced he'll bring about a peaceful coexistence between zombies and humans if he can demonstrate his unique condition to Howard Stein, the man responsible for the zombie virus, Barnes sets off on a grueling cross-country journey to meet his maker. Along the way he recruits a small army of "super" zombies that will stop at nothing to reach their goal. There's Guts, the dreadlocked boy who can run like the wind; Joan, the matronly nurse adept at reattaching decaying appendages; Annie, the young girl with a fierce quick-draw; and Ros, who can actually speak. United they embark on an epic quest to attain what all men, women--and, apparently, zombies--yearn for: equality.

Brains is a blood-soaked, darkly humorous story that will have readers rooting for Barnes and his zombie posse to the very end.
