HallowReads: Zombies! Braineater Jones by Stephen Kozeniewski

I received a complimentary download of this book in exchange for a review.

Just when you think there is nothing new in the undead world along comes Braineater Jones. I tagged this Zombie Noir from the very opening pages. What I loved most about this book was the atmospheric dialogue and the diary format. Ina series of journal entries we learn about our main character when he wakes undead in a pool with a gaping hole in his chest and no idea who he is.

After a quick escape from some thieving thugs, Jones finds his new state is a turn off to even the poorest bum in 1934’s skid row like environs. The quest is on to find out who he is and who killed him. Oh yes and the quest for some Brains!
This book really reflects the level of research Stephen immersed himself in. The dialogue, locations and most importantly Jones’s narrative gives the reader a snapshot of a period of history, and the action makes this a definite page turner. I also enjoyed how the story elements were wrapped up. A real treat for zombie fans!
