Zed by Stephen Herfst
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I wholeheartedly enjoyed “Zed,” a hilarious spin on the zombie trend that simultaneously ensures a deeper look and concentration of thought on some serious issues-such as consciousness and compassion, survival and surrender, humanity and inhumanity, do-goodism vs. government and military, and more. I literally chuckled or even laughed aloud on almost every page, but as I was laughing, I was also learning and pondering.
While I was laughing and learning, I was also racing through the pages, because the action and adventure and thrills provided by Zed and his oddball (but likable) new human sidekick Chase are addictive and enjoyable. I was so glad when, on reaching the end, I learned that Zed will indeed return for an encoure, because he is truly too precious to drop off the scene after only one gig. Here’s to Zombies with Brains, Consciousness, and a delightful Heart.
