I first heard about The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever when I took part in the cover reveal and sneak peak inside, and I knew that this was a book I had to read. With quote like the following this book is sure to make you laugh out loud.
Her body was like a goddess mixed with an angel mixed with a female superhero.After finishing The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever I am fining it really hard to put into words what this book is all about. The plot of this book is a group of friends, Gabe, Bobby, and Justin, plan to make the greatest zombie movie ever, they have limited funds, a barely there script, mediocre actors, and idea how to make a movie at all. The result, an hilarious account of how bad they can fail.
I love that this book follows a group of friends trying to make a movie, it's so cringe worthy you feel embarrassed for them at some points, and laugh out loud at others, it's a perfect blend of humour and amateur mistakes from the boys, yet it works amazingly well. If this book were a movie it would be a spoof movie.
The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever was a relatively quick read for me, I could not help but turn the pages, wondering what mistake would happen next, or how they would solve the next problem. The excuses they use to get people to be extras were genius, even down to the more unbelievable ones.
Jeff Strand has done a great job of writing a book that draws you in, but also leaves you wondering what the hell is going on. It's crazy but makes complete sense, in a strange sort of way.
I really enjoyed reading The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever, this book was a break from the norm and made a refreshing change from my latest reads.
