The Infects by Sean Beaudoin
The Infects

left city reader, September 25, 2012

If you're a fan of dark basements, desperate dashes through the woods, and lusty femur snacking, this take on zombies will not disappoint. But what sets The Infects apart from other zombie fare is the extra layer of, well, brains. Firstly, Beaudoin is just flat out funny, and pulls just the right reference out of anything from philosophy to trashy pop on page after page. And the mix of self-conscious toying with zombie conventions and truly grounded, sharply drawn characters really propel the humor and the gore and the mystery in a way that regular genre stories can't. Fun read, stuffed with zombie action, and with a conclusion you seriously didn't see coming. Recommended!
