" Not sure what to say about this one. It was fun. I giggled often, laughed out loud a few times. But..uhm...really gross at times. And seriously...that's the ending? "

" This story about zombies is a diary of a man on a working vacation, and during his stay he got into an airplane accident. When he floated for awhile he found himself on a deserted island, he thinks theres another survivor but soon he found out that it was the beautiful woman from the plane and she was a flesh eating maniac. The story continues about his daily routines and how he's avoiding being bit by his zombie girlfriend. This is a very comical book he tells of his ups and downs he has with his new girlfriend, how she sabotages his rescue a couple occasions, to how he bathes her and picks bugs and spiders from her body. he's hoping for a spot in Hollywood so hes trying his best to keep her "alive". I totally recommend this book, Id give this book 7 stars if I could. "

" Nothing special. Writing is not that sophisticated. Plot goes nowhere despite a few avenues of possibilities. It's a quick read that requires little thought. At times it did make me chuckle. Read this if you want something pretty mindless - but don't try to eat while you read. Some gross stuff that might turn your stomach, but nothing revolutionary. "

" The Zombie Wilson Diaries plays on the castaway scenario replacing the volleyball named Wilson from the Tom Hanks film with a zombie girl who is quite a bit more animated and a whole lot more bitey than a ball with a bloody hand print for a face. Our nameless narrator begins his diary while on a business trip to the islands, which turns into a plane crash which lands him on a deserted island in the middle of the ocean with one of the other passengers, who apparently floated up to the island alive, just like him, but made the unfortunate decision to eat some exotic berries that have turned her from a hottie model type into a rottie gooey type. But fear not, our narrator decides to take her under his wing instead of bashing her skull in with a big rock because she keeps him company on a island lacking in others to socially interact with. Oh, we do get the occasional interloper, like our fair lady's dead rotting hubby and a few natives who have canoed over from another island, but for the most part, this tale of a fateful trip is all about a man and his zombie.
A nice touch with this book is the appearance of handwritten text and the hand scrawled stick drawings that the narrator puts at the front of each chapter, which added to the personal diary feel of this story.
It is an intriguing relationship that this deluded and desperate man has with a creature that I found hard to define as far as what her role was. Each chapter starts with "My girlfriend..." but it becomes clear that the zombie in this story plays multiple parts, and girlfriend, it seems, is probably the least of them. Desperate for companionship, it is almost as if she is his pet or willful child, as he takes care of her and keeps her from getting into trouble, while at the same time she snaps at him and generally acts like a brat, but there are moments when it seems that his girl, undead Friday, seems to recognize and even relies on him, especially when there are thunderstorms and undead sharks trying to snap her in half.
The comedy here is dark and should be appreciated by a fan of the zombie genre for certain, as well as those who like a bit of a twisted tale in general. The self-induced torture that this castaway goes through as he debates, on a daily basis, whether it would just be better to kill this creature even though she provides him with a shred of human contact, is a wickedly humorous conflict. I'm not really sure whether I liked this guy or I just wanted to smack some sense into him, but I know one thing for sure, this book was an entertaining journey into the surreal. "

" Interesting story. There are a few formatting problems with the Kindle version. These do mess with enjoyment of the novel. There is a page or missing in Day 29. Ally is spelled Ally and Alley throughout the novel as well. It is worth a read though if these errors won't be a bother. "

" Dear reader. Do not read. "

" I didn't think I would enjoy this book, but I did, it was funny! It was such a fun and unique book! "

" It was an okay read, but I really felt like the main character did some unbelievable things. I can possibly attribute it to the characters state, but some of it was just too far fetched. "

" In one word: en-GROSS-ing. :) "

" There were many moments I laughed aloud but those grew few and far between towards the end. The story became a little repetitive but this was still a fun read and an original idea. My favorite scene involved the shark. "

" Well, that was a wild ride! Completely bonkers, sick, gross and slightly disturbing- alright totally disturbing. "
Sarah | 2/26/2013
" Thoroughly enjoyed this. Downloaded it after enjoying Among The Living by the same author and it didn't disappoint...funny and lighthearted yet macabre and gruesome in places..thoroughly recommend! "

" Funny funny funny! A little warped at some points and gets slow towards the end. I would read it again though! "

" It was a great idea for a story but not as funny as I thought it would be. Also, way more disgusting than I expected. Just not a book I enjoyed very much. "
