    Title: Our Undead

    ¿Author: Theo Vigo

    Genre: YA zombie

    Review:

    Oh man, doesn't the cover just look creeepppy?  It sure made me do a double take--very appropriate cover for a zombie apocalypse  
    book, I would think. This is my second hard core zombie book, so I don't know what is the standard zombie apocalypse plot line. But
     I'm pretty sure Our Undead doesn't follow the stereotypical zombie story line. I mean, have you ever read about a girl who has a freakin'
    trained zombie??! How cool is that? Alright, let me take a quick breath and get onto the actual review instead of my rambling.

    What really got me interested about this book was the book description:
    In a disease ridden, present day, Portland, Oregon, an unlikely connection develops between two teenagers and an undead man,
    when their coincidental meeting sends them trekking to Hollywood, California, on a revealing journey of relationships, morality and
    conspiracy.
    How many zombie books have you read in which the main character befriends a zombie?  To my surprise, I found myself very attached
     to Abe (the nice zombie) despite the fact he did eat/kill Margaret's (the main character) mom and dad. Yeah, I did seriously admit I grew
     fond of a decaying, flesh eating zombie. I thought Abe's character was pretty interesting, especially since he's a zombie. Although he
    doesn't really speak much, there is some background info given about him about his life before he got turned.

    Like I said before, Margaret is the main character. I have my off and on moments with Margaret. Sometimes I really like her, like when
    she is being very frank about the facts and is realistic. Other times, I feel like she is being kind of mean.  Like the time when she throws
     rocks at Abe. I know Abe can't feel it (since zombies can't feel pain), but I still think it wasn't nice of Margaret to throw stuff at him since
    Abe could bite her head off if he wanted to. 

    Billy is another character that is quite important in Our Undead. He is a 15 year old zombie fanatic, hence why he was well prepared for
     the zombie apocalypse. He is also somewhat socially awkward, but has kick butt survival skills. Margaret runs into Billy while traveling
     with Abe and together they decide to travel to Hollywood since Billy has always wanted to go there and there really isn't a safe place left
     to escape, so why not Hollywood?

    The novel is written in an interesting style. It is much like a screen play. Also, the words are all very to the point. There's no beating
    around the bush. I personally there are both pros and cons with this writing style. The pros being that the action is fast paced and the
    cons being readers only really know what is going on on the surface (you don't really get to know the character's internal  thought.)

    I really enjoyed the plot line and how the story is told from multiple characters' point of view. The first few chapters were a bit confusing
    since there are flashback and changed in POV, but everything fell into place as I read on.


    Likes:
        *there's a trained zombie!
        *unique writing approach
        *everything clicks in place like a puzzle


    Dislikes:
        *would like to see more intenal thoughts/get to know the characters more in depth
    ¿     *first chapters confusing
