Read full description of the books:
I don't think I'll be eating ribs in any barbecue joints in the near future after reading this.
Andy was killed in a car wreck along with his wife. But like a small percentage of the population, he reanimates as a decaying zombie. He quickly learns that he has no civil rights. He has to live in his parent's wine cellar, and he isn't allowed to see or contact his daughter. It's against the law for him to do simple things like logging on to the Internet or go to the movies. He's harrassed and pelted with food by the living (Breathers) if he even tries to take a walk, and zombies are routinely attacked by thrill seekers and drunken frat boys.
Stuck in the basement drinking wine he can't really taste and watching television, his only other entertainment is his zombie support group where he meets the lovely (but very dead) Rita. Andy and his fellow zombies soon run across Ray, another one of the undead, who shows them the secret to reclaiming their lives and their dignity.
This was a terrific twist on a zombie story. I never thought I could feel sympathy for the living dead, but even as a Breather, I found Andy's story touching and sometimes heartbreaking. The black humor had me laughing out loud even as my skin crawled.
A very original concept with great writing. I've seen a lot of reviews compare it to Chuck Palahniuk novel, and I'd agree that there are some similarities to the best of Chuck P. However, I think that's selling S.G. Browne short. He's done something unique and creative here that's all his own.
