I don't like Zombie Stories. Is that bad of me?
I just find that so many of them lack any spark. Almost as if they were written
by a zombie.
Fortunately, this wasn't a Zombie Story. It was an EX-Zombie Story.
I really enjoyed the tipping of the tired, hackneyed old Zombie Trope onto its head, and the way the narrator couldn't decide if the people who had cured her had done her a favour or not.
And a great portrayal of alienation and the feeling of not belonging to one group or another. At 16 or 17 it's so easy to feel like nobody in the whole world knows what it's like to be you.
No point telling teenagers we all do though. They never believe it.
The truth may be out there, but lies are inside your head.
