When rural Ohio college professor Peter Mellor dies in an automobile accident during a zombie outbreak, he is reborn as a highly intelligent (yet somewhat amnesiac) member of the living dead. With society decomposing before his eyes and violence escalating into daily life, Peter quickly learns that being a zombie isn't all fun and brains. Humans-generally unsympathetic to his new proclivities-try to kill him at nearly every opportunity. His old friends are loath to associate with him. And he finds himself inconveniently addicted to the gooey stuff inside of people's heads.As if all this weren't bad enough, Peter soon learns that his automobile accident was no accident at all. Faced with the harrowing mystery of his death, Peter resolves to use his strange zombie "afterlife" to solve his own murder.Skillfully combining horror, humor, and film noir, Zombie, Ohio makes for an enthralling and innovative tale that any fan of the current zombie craze is sure to relish. Followers of detective fiction and horror fiction alike will find something to love about Zombie, Ohio-a tale of murder, mystery, and the walking dead. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Nixon | 2/16/2014

    " Amazingly fun book. So funny and smart. My favorite zombie book so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bandit | 2/16/2014

    " This was definitely a stand-out in the ever popular zombie genre. A zombie apocalypse tale told from a perspective of a zombie in a very localized (rural Ohio) scene. Clever compelling narration and good characters kept the story moving and occasional dark humor was well placed. I highly recommend this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/8/2014

    " I read this book for one reason only...it was from Ohio! I am from Ohio. I learned so much about Zombies! I enjoyed sharing what was going on in the story with my husband. This story was definately different. But I enjoyed it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vickiek | 1/28/2014

    " It is soo very rare that I DO NOT finish a book but this book was soo slow and intolerable. Don't even bother, Seriously. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug Roberts | 1/27/2014

    " Close call, but since this is the first book I've read from the zombie's perspective, the novelty kicked it from 3 to 4 stars. Nothing new here, really. No real tension, and the mystery subplot wasn't that intriguing... hmmm. Maybe this was a 3 star book after all. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shannon | 1/26/2014

    " could not get into it does not mean it sucks it just was not for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/22/2014

    " A perfectly timed Halloween selection from the Kindle Daily Deal. I really enjoyed this zombie tale with its unusual perspective- the protagonist is a newly formed yet curiously sentient member of the walking dead. There were quite a few amusing quips and funny quotes (especially in the beginning) and I enjoyed the sense of humor, and the inclusion of just the right amount of gore, mystery and life philosophy. A light, but definitely enjoyable horror selection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Berry | 1/14/2014

    " Possibly one of the best zombie books I have read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 12/20/2013

    " Hilarious bit of zombie humor describing places in Ohio I have been. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 11/27/2013

    " I was very surprised by this relatively unknown book. Written from the viewpoint of the Zombie, the author took a different spin on this popular genre. It was well written and fast paced. I will definitely look for other books written by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 11/26/2013

    " Slow start but all in all an enjoyable read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 11/11/2013

    " I felt like I had to force myself to read this book to the end. I felt like the plot was seriously lacking. I did enjoy some parts, but overall I dont think I would ever read this book again, or recommend it to a friend. Just an ok, mostly boring book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon | 8/20/2013

    " i really liked this book. if you like zombies you should definitely read this "

    " Really liked this one - my son even read it and loved it. It helps that I'm from Ohio and recognized so much in the setting. Liked the viewpoint of the zombie as the main character. Highly recommended! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 6/3/2013

    " Great book. Very fresh take on things. It's a story about the zombie apocalypse as told from the viewpoint of a zombie, but he's a bit of a different kind of zombie :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 6/28/2012

    " An interesting take on the classic Zombie tale. There were a lot of unanswered questions and it was a little too "cutesy," but overall I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brad | 6/15/2012

    " While the book was easily telegraphed as to the direction it was going (for the most part), I thoroughly enjoyed the characters as well as the thought of a "zombie with a heart." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LaKeisha | 2/18/2012

    " What can I say...I love zombies, and its Halloween!! "

    " An interesting spin on the zombie novel but I found it a bit hard to sink my teeth into. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joel Wiebner | 2/3/2012

    " I'm not a huge fan of books from the zombie's perspective. This one didn't change my opinion either "
