    Campy Effort From a Young Talent

    "Rock and Roll Reform School Zombies" is just as campy as it's title would suggest. This is the first book I've read by the young talented author, Bryan Smith. Though the story comes across very hokey, you can tell that Smith is a smart writer who is capable of bigger, better and smarter stories.

    It's not that the story is bad. I felt in the end that perhaps it would have translated better as a graphic novel where a certain level of campiness may work better. Smith prose does shine despite the silly premise of the book. In the end it's just another zombie story and the storyline is nearly unnecessary.

    The biggest hang up I had with the book was the "Rock and Roll Reform School" itself. It wasn't really believeable and Smith didn't do much to suspend my disbelief of such a place existing. Added to that was an all-too-easy catalyst to create the zombies. The action was fine and the vile descriptions were vivid. But believability still was a sticking point.

    I still feel the writer himself is capable of better things. I fully intend to pick up another Bryan Smith book and give him another try. If you want some easy cheesey reading however, this is your book!
