Listener Opinions

    " Pretty funny concept but not for an entire book. I only got through the first 50 some pages which was enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 2/18/2014

    " This was a fun listen-the narrator sounds strikingly similar to GK (wink, wink, nudge, etc.) Was a tad confusing listening when certain plot points were revealed without all the info - i thought for sure the discs were in error until I looked at a copy of the book. Otherwise this was an entertaining listen. Would be great for a road trip! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jotale | 2/18/2014

    " This book was extremely enjoyable. The story effortlessly satirizes small town midwest and all its disfunction as the community of Lake Woebegotten works to survive zombie apocalypse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben Hamilton | 2/13/2014

    " Funny zombie story set in a small town. If you like zombie stories definitely give this one a try. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/11/2014

    " GREAT zombie book! Loved the variety of characters and their development - great storyline too! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 1/10/2014

    " Heh heh heh "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Zink | 12/29/2013

    " Well written, as always, by Garrison Keillor. Humorous. Realistic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Yodamom | 11/27/2013

    " I got to 25 % and quit. It was ok, just not for me. Imagine Fargo meets zombies and there you go. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 10/9/2013

    " If you hunger for zombie lit, this is certainly worth a read. It's the Prairie Home Companion version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, all the children are above average and all the undead are voraciously hungry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 8/9/2013

    " This worked both as a zombie story and as a Prairie Home Companion parody. The author nailed the tone of Keillor, and also the history of zombie lore. It's a quick, silly read that I'd only recommend if you like zombies or public radio. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 7/30/2013

    " This was a good solid zombie story with a few good yuks. I wouldn't say it's as funny as some of the other comedy-zombie options out there, but it was certainly a good read. It had some interesting characters, and unique scenarios. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy S | 7/10/2013

    " Now that was a zombie book!! So much fun; really entertaining. It was like Fargo -- but with zombies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 6/27/2013

    " Being a fan of Garrison Keillor, I found this quite entertaining. It probably will not have the same impact for those unfamiliar with Keillor's News from Lake Wobegon. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gilliam | 6/15/2013

    " Never got past page 25. The affected folksy tone turned me right off. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clara | 6/7/2013

    " The style of this book was amusing (it played upon the stereotypical Minnesotan attitude) and the situations were funny, but it was only just ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli Sprowls | 11/24/2012

    " This book was so great! zombies and humor, and a really great story. The only way I could have liked this book more is if I knew more about the lake woebegone stories it is satirizing. I loved this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erika Van | 9/26/2011

    " So LOVED this book! Just so well written, witty and wonderful. A must read for all Zombiephiles! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 7/12/2011

    " This book took a bit for me to get into reading it. But definitely worth it (living in Minnesota) and ends with quite a bang. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 7/6/2011

    " If you listen to A Prairie Home Companion , or have read any of Garrison Keiller's books, this story will crack you up! I really enjoyed the audio edition, read by a Garrison Keiller sound alike. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/22/2011

    " I am a sucker for anything NPR-related. Pretty hilarious and strangely well-thought out- I never would have suspected the danger in a spring thaw-out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 3/4/2011

    " This book was great fun. A small town in Minnesota, a zombie apocalypse, a serial killer on the loose amongst the chaos and lots of laughs. I thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donald | 2/23/2011

    " If zombies came to attack my house = would surround my house with tredmills facing out.
    I couldt get into it... I. Have read Max Brooks 2 zombie books and thought I would give this a try...sentence structure was rather long a lot of comma usage "

About the Author
Harrison Geillor was born in a small three-room farm house in central MN, sometime in the middle of the twentieth century. He attended one of Minnesota's prestigious institutions of higher learning, were he obtained a degree in English. Like English majors everywhere, he wanted on to work in a variety of jobs that had nothing to do with books or literature. At some point in his life he decided that the best way to appreciate Minnesota was to appreciate it from afar. He splits his time between Santa Cruz and San Francisco, only returning to Minnesota for smelt fishing, and the occasional family reunion.
