    Undead Drive-Thru was a fun read

    I really enjoyed Undead Drive-Thru. It was a fun read, a story revolving around Aunt-B and her undead husband, their nephew and some young people helping refurbish a broken down Diner/Drive-Thru. It was a pleasure to read, and I plan to read more of the author's works.

    Highly Recommended

    Ever since I was big enough to hold a book, I've been reading. I started off with the usual Mother Goose rhymes, then moved on to fairy tales, science fiction, and fantasy. When I was ten years old, my reading world changed when I picked up the book, "The Shining," by Stephen King. This was my first experience with reading horror. For ten years, I read all the horror I could get my hands on. I quit reading horror books only because I kept reading the same themes over and over again. I wanted original stories, and wasn't finding any. I went back to reading science fiction/fantasy books. I like my escapism. "The Shining" was the first book I read that had real people coping with real-life drama, with a touch of supernatural overtones. An alcoholic father, trying to keep his family together, moves his family to a hotel to become the caretakers. Unbeknownst to him, his son is clairvoyant and fights off the malevolent "spirit" of the hotel. Unfortunately, the father succumbs to the sinister forces and the hotel possesses him. In the end, the father manages to take control of himself, tells the son and wife to flee from the hotel. The father blows up the hotel, with him in it. Through all the turmoil, one man loved his son enough to save him. What does "The Shining" have to do with Rebecca Besser's story, "Undead Drive-Thru?" I found an original horror story I like! Now, I'm not a big zombie fan. Again, if you've read one zombie story, you've read them all. Or, you've at least got the premise: zombies are undead people, walking the Earth, eating peoples brains. The end. Not so with "Undead Drive-Thru." I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but this is a story that felt real to me. What would you do if the person you loved most in the world had become a zombie? Would you kill them, or keep them alive for your own selfish reasons? Aunt B certainly takes her wedding vows seriously: '"...in sickness and in health, until death do you part."' Wow! What a person will do for a loved one is taken to a whole different level in this story. As I was reading Mrs. Besser's book, I found myself grasping tightly to my Nook, white knuckling it along with the character's. Who was going to be attacked next and when? Who was going to survive? Descriptive and gory, I found myself saying, '"yuk!"' and '"gross!"' often. Since I'm not an avid zombie reader, I don't have anything else to compare this to, except for "The Shining." "Undead Drive-Thru" is a good example of real people trying to make it through their everyday lives, when something unbelievable happens to them. You get an insight into how blindly love can get in the way of common sense, and yet, despite adversity, can bring others together. "Undead Drive-Thru" is a wonderful read, and I look forward to reading other stories by Rebecca Besser in the future!
