Zed - New review

Hi guys! Sorry I haven't been around here lately! I've been sick (again) and a little busy with my classes! But here's a review of a great book!

Zed (Zed Trilogy)   by Stephen Herfst

From Goodreads:
Zed is not your typical zombie. He is cursed with the affliction of thought ... although he tries to make the best of a bad situation. The goals for his unrest are simple: to improve his stride, to taste a lightly-seared pork loin once again and avoid Activists at all costs.

His life was predictable, controlled and good until chaos crashed the party. In just one day his world is destroyed and his ability to survive is tested. Would he be able to get through this in one piece? And would he somehow be able to survive the unstoppable force that goes by the name of Chase?

MY REVIEW.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you ever thought that conscience is what difference humans from the rest of animals then you need to know that is also what separates Zed from the other zombies. And if you ever thought that zombies couldn´t be funny; you are wrong!

This story presents us a zombie like no other. Here the zombies are supposed to be these creatures that only want to bite humans. They are pretty much like any typical zombie; they go around with their arms extended and searching for humans brains. But in the opposite side is Zed. Who, with his rare ability of thinking choose not to eat human flesh and expects other things from life. (Really, who wants to be like everybody else?)

Zed is one of the funniest characters I ever read about. He is a different kind of zombie and a different kind of hero. Is very easy to feel related with him and love him more and more. He is sarcastic, very clever, with great sense of humor and the best part is that he knows he is different and it´s not ashamed of that.

And then he meets Chase, this little girl who turns his life upside down. The combination of this two, really creates a good book. The way she helps Zed to find the humanity inside him and to choose what kind of zombie-man he wants to be, is really adorable.

I think that seeing us through Zed´s eyes is a new way to discover or to be capable of understand things in our nature that we don´t pay much attention to.

The book is full with action, bullets, escapes, car chases and A LOT of great dialogues. It is funny from page one to the final stop. I can´t wait to know more about the adventures of Zed and his little friend.
