The Zombie Cookbook by Kim Richards: Reviews

Order From Amazon

Mini Review by Karina:

I'll post other reviews below, but thought I'd put in my two cents. Light on the horror and heavy on the fun, this book has a lot of imaginative stories and cover the gamut of interests. "A Hard Message to Deliver" is very well done horror, while "A Zombie's APB" will make you snort out your brains. "The Secret Ingredient" has a "cozy mystery" feel to it, as did "Brain Food." I could see "Brain Salad for Dummies" featured in Zombieland. "A Zombie Named Clete," "Beer-Battered Brains," and "Quick and Easy Zombie Pastie" are cute, fun reads, while "Express Cuisine" never stops with the action. (I won't comment on "Wokking Dead" or "My Big, Fat, Zombie Wedding," except to say I was laughing for hours after I wrote them, they were such fun.)

I will warn you: a few of these stories have excessive profanity, IMHO. I don't recommend this for kids because of that.

Wrap of of Reviews!

The Zombie Cookbook helps, what really keeps the idea of zombies “fresh” in the mind of readers around the globe is its collection of stories, poems, sketches and recipes which orbit around a subject everyone can sink their teeth into: Food!
--Trent Kinsey, http://www.trentkinsey.com/reviews/091017-zombiecookbookKR.htm

As you can imagine, all of these stories are written tongue-in-rotted-cheek. So if you want a fun collection of writing that mixes humor, horror, and a dash of cilantro, pick up The Zombie Cookbook.

"Are you a fan of rotting flesh, drooping eyeballs, dismembered bodies, romance? Romance? Yes, The Zombie Cookbook has something for everyone whether your reading tastes lean toward the gruesome or the romantic. Kim Richards has put together an eclectic collection of zombie tales and recipes... Interspersed with these delectable tales are eye-popping, finger-licking good illustrations provided by the talented George Silliman"

The Zombie Cookbook is kick-ass, 'pee-your-pants' funny, and definitely worth checking out! For those with a dark, twisted, sick sense of humor, GET THIS!! 5 Stars!

If you’re a fan of zombie fiction, I would definitely recommend picking this up. Don’t try the recipes at home, though, unless you’ve got a shambling dead to feed.

...well-written. ...When the collection hits its high points, in stories like The Right Recipe and My Big Fat Zombie Wedding, you end up discovering some short stories that have a lot of depth and world-building done to them in addition to the puns and slapstick humour that pepper the book. ...definitely worth checking out.

The Zombie cookbook puts a totally new twist on the lives or rather lack thereof, of such creatures.

full of surprises--a wonderful break from the traditional Halloween-type horror stories
