I bought this book for my boyfriend, it seemed like the perfect thing to get him reading a little bit more. He loved it, and is actually reading it a second time around. Zen of Zombie is a book that teaches you how to slow down and move at your own pace, much like a zombie. It takes many principles of Zen and meditations and applies to them how a zombie would be. It is an interesting way to look at Zen and is highly entertaining to read. Who knew Zombies could teach so much about slowing down and enjoying life!
The book goes over 12 steps to led to complete zombification which takes place over a period of 90 days (my boyfriend said it didn’t take). It helps readers conquer fears, play it cool, letting go and being your own boss. Throughout the book it imparts wisdom and sage zombie advice for getting through life. It is a funny little book to have on the night stand or coffee table as my boyfriend does. It doesn’t necessarily follow the lore to a T, so if you are a fanatic for lore to be exact maybe don’t read this, but really it’s a book written in good fun.
It is not something serious or meant to be such, just something to laugh about and have an easy read. Some things are reiterated throughout the book which can get old fast, but it is still something to give you or your guests a quick laugh. There is a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor so if that is something that is not your style, don’t read it. It pokes fun at the fandom which can be appreciated. Overall I give the book a 3 out of 5 because it did find it’s silliness something my boyfriend and I could share.
