Pat -O is not your average hero, and he most certainly isn’t the first person you would team up with when faced with a zombie apocalypse. Saying that, he seems to be managing okay. When he wakes that morning he finds a hot girl in his apartment, wearing his t-shirt, if only he could remember her name. She storms off, having been insulted by his drunken lack of memory, straight into a hungry horde of flesh-eaters. Thus begins the worst day of his life.
Pat-O, although not a quality male, is actually a likeable and honest protagonist. The reader doesn’t want him to get eaten by zombies but it does look like it’s inevitable at any given moment. He soon has a plan and a mission, and no zombie will stop him. This novella is funny, light-hearted, and realistic. It’s the sort of book you can happily steam through with pleasure.
