Z is For Zombie

   (9 reviews)

The world had ended in the middle of the night. For Richie Kincannon and a small group of young survivors, it was the beginning of a struggle for life, against an unknown force that had altered their world, seemingly forever. Now, two years after the Changes, the group must once again fight for their right to life, against an enemy of incredible ability - one they didn't understand, but knew once had been human...

When is a zombie not a zombie?  It's when Geron Kees gets his hands on it and twists it into something very unique and new.  Jeremy and Richie are teenagers leading a group of youths facing an survival in a world that seems both dead and deadly.  It is a tale of love, hope, family and survival.  You will love the characters that bring adventure, fear, laughter and suspense to life in this story.  All the genres listed above hold very true.  I'm not a fan of zombie stories, but this story goes way beyond the stereotype to create a very unique and interesting monster.  It is one of my favorite books.  Read it and be amazed!

Response from the author:

Thank you for the wonderful review! :)

I just finished reading "Z is for Zombie" and am still reeling, and a bit in awe of the journey that was this story. There are 16 chapters to this story and the end of each one will leave you anxious to get immediately into the next one. 

This is a post apocalyptic story that features zombies, and one zombie in particular has the main antagonist role throughout most of the story. However, the story is about much, much more than just the zombie, or the end of the world, for that matter. The story is set around a group of 8 kids and one non-communicative adult who try to make sense of, and survive in a world after 'The Changes.' In addition to the obvious challenge of survival in a now hostile world, the kids have to figure out how to relate to one another and build a life together in such a way that will give them security, but also love and happiness, too. The story is all about their journey toward that great end.

Geron did an amazing job creating a world that, despite its hazards and hardships, I wouldn't mind visiting and even spending some time exploring. I loved this story, and if you give it a chance, you will too. 

Response from the author:

Thank you. :)

The story, "Z is for Zombie," is another excellent one from Geron which I can heartily recommend.  There were twists, turns, terminology, and more.  I read both versions, the original and the revised, and both are very good.

Geron's respect for life comes through well, as does respect for personal space.  Every character has importance, even as some are featured more than others.  

Only one writer besides Geron has had zombies of any type that I like to read about.  However, I like Geron's the best.

@Geron Kees, when will you write a short sequel, "W is for Wake-Up," (and you are welcome to use that title IF you wish) about some of the parents and family of the group waking up to a very changed world?  How will they react to their kids being about 3 or maybe 4 years older by the time their section of the world is ready to wake up?

This is an outstanding read, one of the best on GA, and I don't say that lightly. It is so much more than a zombie story and I think any reader would agree. Highly recommended! Cheers... Gary....

Geron is a talented writer with the knack to throw an abundance of plot-twists and perfectly elaborate prose your way over a journey. Z Is For Zombie revolves around a group of teenagers, fighting to stay alive, living with the choices they have to make and the repercussions, accompanied by emotional baggage that comes with complicated decisions. At times the story is a thriller, in others, it reflects what it is like to be part of a community, while at another glance it showcases what humanity means us. The world of Z Is For Zombie is rich with detail, wealthy in backstory, and holds compelling, yet, loveable characters. If you have a couple of hours to spare, check this wonderful story out. Just maybe, you'll finish it in less time than I did lol :)

Geron is a thoughtful and talented author. Z is for Zombie is a beautifully written story which is really about love and compassion at its roots.

 

The Changes have left these young people on their own. They become a family, they have learned their survival lessons well. Then one afternoon things change.

 

This not your typical zombie story. Do not let the title fool you. Do not miss reading this outstanding story.

A fantastic tale from Geron. It follows a group of young adults (under 18s) and how they survived The Changes. It follows a brief period in there lives of two years, and how they become family rather than a group of people.

Highly reccommend this story.

It may say "Z is For Zombie," in the title, but don't let that fool you into thinking this is just another Walking Dead clone. It's not. Geron creates a world that feels alive in the post-apocalyptic sense of what happened during the Changes. It follows a brief period in the lives of a group of survivors who after two years, are more family than just a collection of people. And they are all under the age of 18.

 

Five stars for this terrific tale.
