I've Been Deader: Adam Sifre
Being undead never felt more alive. Fred's just an ordinary zombie until one day he learns a trick.
The undead had a good run at the beginning, but once the breathers get organized, it's only a matter of time before zombies go the way of pet rocks and sea monkeys. They need a hero. They need Fred. Fred is a natural dead leader with a flair for poetry and a fierce love for his son, Timmy. Unfortunately, as far as the undead are concerned, the only good Timmy is a dead Timmy.
Things look grim for the undead until Fred flies into a rage trying to make popcorn and discovers he has a talent for controlling zombies. Now the undead are organized and, like the unions, in a position to destroy America. Is there no one who can stop them? More importantly, do we want them to? Stick around, we'll have some fun.
I actually won "I`ve Been Deader" on goodreads. I was so excited when I did. Thank you so much for the opportunity to read this fantastic book Adam Sifre!!! I have never read a "zombie" book before, so this unique book was an awesome way to venture into zombie world.
Thanks again for the chance to be introduced to the zombies through "I`ve Ben Deader."
I absolutely loved this book!!! If this is an example of most zombie books, then I can say that "yup, I`m now a fan" of zombie land...
Adam has an amazing concept in his writing style. I feel that some how I have a greater insight to a zombies life, and what they are and thus go thru in their life. (I think that's a better way of saying it) of who they are really.
Yes, you'll find all the creepy stuff like guts, (oh man that is just so yuck) and the gorey blood (which I most definitely excepted) that is part of the gross zombie life (I think, remember I`m new to this) But, it was so different in a lot of ways than what you'd think would be associated with a zombie book.
How do you explain that you feel sad and bad for a zombie? That's what I feel for poor Fred, such an "out of this world" kind of character!!!
As you read I've Been Deader, it will seem like you are reading a couple of books at the same time, yet they are all pulled together into this one spectacular novel.. (well done Adam) I wonder if others will feel the same way as I did?
Such a page turner. A MUST READ as far as I'm concerned!!
My rating: I give I've Been Deader a 4/5 Angel stars
