Joyce Carol Oates' Zombie terrified, shocked, and greatly angered me. I found myself cursing at and spitting venom at the fictional Q_P_. Not for the faint of heart!! Bravo, Mrs. Oates!

There is absolutely no redeeming factors to this book. It is sick, twisted and shocking at times which is obviously the desired effect, but the writing style is difficult to get used to and there is no climax or conclusion to the story. It's essentially 176 pages of rambling lunacy. This is the biggest waste of money I've spent on a book in a very long time.

I have a system. I read reviews and really think about it before buying a book. Then I put it on my wishlist if I want it but can't buy it yet, a fairly solid system. Once in a while, however, something in the system goes wrong and I grab a book by accident that I previously decided not to get. Once in a while it turns out to be a great find. This wasn't one of those times. The punctuation, well, more a lack of, ruined it for me. I found it difficult to follow at times and tedious and dull at others. I feel that the summary is misleading and the book just sucks. If you insist though, it's about 170 pages long with sex, drugs, violence and profanity. I know what you're thinking. "How could it suck with all that in it?" I dunno how but it does. It really does.~~Seahag

This book is so sick and twisted that it is brilliant! This story is especially scary because the anti-hero could actually be the dude down the street. Seriously twisted.

Sick, gruesome and alarming. JCO is an unforgetable writer. This book is freaky.

One of the few books that made me physically sick, that being said a grimly fascinating novel I found impossible to put down even when I wanted too. Read it but I warned you.

I don't believe I will be recommending this to anyone. I found the plot line and characters disturbing. I can't imagine what prompted Joyce Carol Oates to write something like this. I could not have spent the amount of time need to write a book with this character and these events.

JCO created an extra-creepy serial killer in Zombie! A drugged Zombie himself, he is trying to create his own persoanl.Zombie who will love him at will. Terrific, fast read.

Some parts were hard to read because the writing left such a vivid image in my head. I had nightmares for weeks afterwards and I loved it!!

Waste of time. Not a good read at all. Don't get me wrong, I like a good sick and twisted book just like the rest, but this one is totally obscure. I will not be recommending this one to anyone.

A few times i have agreed with you.i am not a huge rper or any thing but i a. Speaking on the behalf of those who are.fosome people its there life. A different world.a new economy.a new them. Andd i know how it fells to want to be a different person. And those who want eviewgo to editorial or try to find a review.and maybe if you try the posts you will find it is fun.you can put up a strike for these rrviews on nook. You do npt knoe the ppower it is to have your own book where people look up to you :-{ )

Wow. There is a certain element that compels you to continue reading, you sort of want to understand what is going through this psychopath's head when he does the things he does but there is no good to balance the evil, no justice, no climax, no ending. You're just in disbelief trying to understand this guy and then the book just ends. This could have been a good thriller, had there been the cop on his tail, the shrink on to him, the suspicious sister, etc. but instead you only get his diary. Very twisted, indeed.

I couldnt get more than 20 pages in. I hate the style its written in from someone who loves books that are "scary" or "sick" after reading other reviews about how "messed up" this book was supposed to be I was expecting more but the way it is written made it unbearable to read. I wish i could get my money back....

Not about zombies. Not sure why this book is rating so well, it's awful. Story about a young man with mental issues (big mental issues) who is secretly gay and driving an ice pick into men's brains to try to create a zombie/love interest. That's the story here, and it's gross and uninterestiing.

Incredible , barely readable , waste of time ! Put one star because I can't post without it.

This story was chilling enough that I found it difficult to continue reading at some points, but good enough that I continued reading to find out what happened. I was left unsatisfied with the ending of the book, but that was just my opinion and others might find the books conclusion fine.

This Book makes me sick literally. So Sorry I read it. Doesn't even deserve a rating at all. *

You have a first hand perspective of a serial killer. Well written, had me hoping for a blaze of glory ending. You'll feel sorry for his victims, all of them.
