Dads Versus Zombies by Benjamin Wallace
WordsAPlenty received a free copy of this book from Amazon and chose to review it. This in no way affects the review.
A subdivision with a horrific Home Owner’s Association and a President “bully” and three men who despise the rules – the result? Bowling in order to work out their differences; however, the problem is the president is as obnoxious on the lanes as he is off.
The neighbors who really don’t like one another but are friends by default come together. John, Chris and Erik find themselves staying at John’s house surrounded by loud moaning zombies intent upon eating them. Reminiscent of the three stooges, John, Chris and Erik strike out to eliminate the zombie HOA President, Austin. Much to their surprise he’s alive! Now they are stuck with him as well as zombies and searching for their families.
“Years spent watching movies filled with sword fights gave them both a reference for what a bat fight should look like – intercepted swings, parried blows, spins, twirls, lunges, feints and deft moves as both men fought for an advantage. What followed looked nothing like that. As they both tried to intercept each other’s swings, they missed. A lot.”
John, Chris and Erik meet up with Captain Tim and find themselves at the mercy of the Duke (and no it’s not John Wayne!). John’s issues with the zombies being called walkers is a continuous thread throughout the book and never gets old.
This book is mostly hilarious but still poignant in how the men try to hide their fears and worries for their families. The ending was excellent!
You will laugh, you will cry, you will laugh some more!
