Book Review: The Decaying Destiny of Bobby the Zombie

Title: The Decaying Destiny of Bobby the Zombie

Author: Joshua Griffith



My name is Bobby Lunger.
Well it used to be when I was a living person. Now I’m a card-carrying member of the Undead. Can you imagine what it would be like if you became a zombie? I know it’s one of those burning questions that everyone secretly thinks about.
In my case, I’m trapped in this old husk of a body, doing the bidding of the hunger, like an unwilling host to the horrors I must inflict on humanity to survive. Being one of the undead comes with pain. The pain of my decaying body and the hunger doesn’t make the pain less bearable. I want to return to the peace of the grave so I can free myself from this terrible undead life but the hunger won’t allow it. There’s only one solution to my pain-riddled existence:
It quiets the hunger and restores my body to a more agile and stronger zombie. The more I eat, the better I get. I have no control over the hunger when it decides to make me feed. What a way to unlive?

My Review

5/5 Stars

This was one of the funniest and most original books I’ve picked up in a long time. While I don’t know how many books I’ve read about the zombie apocalypse, I don’t know how many of them have been from the POV of the zombie…except of course for Warm Bodies.

This book was so much better though.

We follow Bobby through all his adventures from his escape from the grave to his first taste of brains to his time stealing a tank to his experience with a tornado. As Bobby finds himself in the new world, his adventures become more and more wild.

It’s a shame this story was so short because I absolutely adored it. Recommended for fans of the movie Shaun of the Dead

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.

  1. Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening.
    I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a
    significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
