Hattie Cross knows what you’re thinking: Zombie sex? Ewwwww. But she also knows that since a virus turned 99.9999 percent of human males into zombies, it’s statistically impossible to meet-let alone date-the remaining 0.00001 percent. So she writes “The Girls’ Guide to Dating Zombies” to help her fellow single women navigate the zombie-relationship waters. Her practical how-to impresses the CEO of the largest drug company in the world, and before she knows it, Hattie, a reporter for a downmarket tabloid that specializes in conspiracy theories, is sitting down with the woman who single-handedly invented the zombie-behavioral-modification market. Granted access to the inner sanctum of zombaceuticals, she meets an actual, living, breathing M-A-N. Now Hattie, the consummate professional, is acting like a single girl at the end of the twentieth century: self-conscious, klutzy and unable to form a coherent sentence without babbling. Worst of all, the human male appears to have impaired her ability to think clearly. Because all of a sudden she’s convinced a conspiracy is afoot at the drug company and it seems to go all the way to the top!
I’m not usually a fan of zombie books, but this book is great. It’s hilarious and light-hearted. A definitely chick-lit zombie book, which I don’t think I’ve heard of before.
I flew through this book and gobbled it up. The worldbuilding is very intricate and yet easy to grasp. The origins of the zombie crisis are believable and entirely realistic.
This book didn’t just entertain me, but also made me think about what the world would be like without men. There was definitely some food for thought hidden within the pages of this book.
