Overview

Presenting Stress Free Food! Animal suffering is a thing of the past.

Hipsters can now enjoy bacon without guilt. Thanks to a new miracle drug the cute little pig no longer feels a thing as she is led to the slaughter.

The only problem? Once the drug enters the food supply anyone who eats it is infected. From fast food burgers to free-range organic eggs, eating animal products turns people into shambling brain-dead zombies - not even vegetarians are safe!

In Portland, Oregon, vegans, freegans, abolitionists, hardliners and raw fooders have holed up in Food Fight, one of the country's premier vegan grocery stores at the vegan mini-mall. There they must prepare for their final battle to take back the city from the hordes of roaming undead. Will vegans filet the flesh-eaters or will they become zombie chow?

When there's no more meat in hell, the vegans will walk the earth.

    This is a great read for zombie lovers, bizarro afficianados and the politically-minded alike. The main character is Dani, an editor who has just turned vegan. While she is adjusting to her new lifestyle, the zombie apocalypse hits and only she and her vegan friends seem to immune to zombification.




    This book is much more political than I expected and I learned quite a bit about veganism and its subcultures. It's also a witty comedy that pokes fun at hardcore zombie fans, classic books rewritten to include zombies and Portland hipsters. Even though the book is hilarious, it carries a strong social message and makes an extremely compelling argument for the vegan lifestyle. After all, when the zombie apocalypse hits, being vegan just might save your life.




    I highly recommend this fun and intriguing novella.

    Just south of your typical zombie story.

    David Agranoff's VEGAN REVOLUTION... With Zombies is to veganism what Upton Sinclair's THE JUNGLE is to socialism. That's not an entirely fair assesment but it was the first reaction I had upon finsihing the story. VEGAN REVOLUTION does try to convey a message but never takes delivering that message too seriously.

    Through out the read you can safely assume the author is vegan himself given the depth and passion of the prose dealing with the subject. Given that, your still never sure if the story is stumping pro or con for veganism. As many pro vegan arguments are presented, just as many cynical counter points are made as well. The tone of it all is jovial and tongue-in-cheek.

    The plot is a great and unique zombie tale. The catalyst for the zombiefication os poinant and brillian. The vegan aspect is always secondary to the zombies. Until the end. That is where the story takes it's Upton Sinclair moment and starts to stump hardcore for veganism and animal rights.

    I do not subscribe to the vegan lifestyle and thus found myself rolling my eyes quite often through the final chapter and epilogue. In totality however the politics are forgivable as it's all not so much soapboxing but the author presenting his point of view against the backdrop of a zombie apocalypse.

    Your free to disagree with him and you won't fell belittled for it. But you should be prepared to become a zombie should you choose the meat eating route...
