Zombie Bitches From Hell (2010)
Fiction Review by La Belle Morte
04.23.11

Zombie Bitches From Hell (2010) The book has an intriguing enough concept — that women everywhere have turned into man-hating zombies and it's up to one man to cure them or change them back (at least the zombie part ;-)). The book starts off with the acknowledgment of a female president of the United States, something that wasn't a stretch in the most recent electoral race with Hilary Clinton.

But the disease doesn't start with her. That honour belongs to Lady Gaga, who transforms on stage. People think that it's all part of the act until she actually starts eating one of her backup dancers. It doesn't seem so far-fetched that she would do something like this in real life ;-) In any case, because it started with the pop star, the disease is named after her. The protagonist's fiancée is a scientist who is looking for the cure, but this is the most insidious and invasive zombie disease — it spreads through dust particles. Invisible, without any scent, and virtually undetectable. The disease only affects women, as well, hence the ‘bitches' in the title.

The book starts off like a horror comedy in the same vein as Shaun of the Dead, but involving women. At first, the book focuses more on the humour of the situation, but it gravitates toward a serious problem. Zombie bitches are ten times worse than the ones you see in the Resident Evil movies.

Of course the first thing the women go for is the balls ;-) This didn't come as a surprise, but if you're particularly squeamish or a guy, I'd recommend skipping the parts involving male body parts being eaten up.

The novel then becomes more like Zombieland — still involving some humour, but also serious at the same time.

Even nuns turns into zombies, and that's a pretty brutal scene. The descriptions of attacks are largely funny, though, as when one character's newborn, who he was sure was going to be a boy, came out as a girl and chomped the crap out of him.

There are even some diary entry type of passages in the book to give the reader more of a background into the implications of what's happening and how it directly affects the main character beyond the fact that his fiancée also inevitably suffers from the infection. But she becomes a ‘talker,' a zombie who, despite her hatred of anything with testosterone, retains her speech functions.

The main character's voice and tone are relatable and clear, and he is definitely funny where appropriate. Readers will enjoy following him through this tale. The novel does have some more touching moments and isn't just a comedy romp. There's some depth to the main character's relationships with other characters, and his willingness to stick it out for some females other than his fiancée.

One thing is for sure — these zombie bitches really are from Hell and they're pretty well organized. The ending is terse and suspenseful. Overall, this is a decent read if you want a book reminiscent of Zombieland but with a bit more depth.
