Review: Braineater Jones

Braineater Jones - Stephen Kozeniewski

I received this book to give an honest review.


I honestly had no clue where this book was going to take me but I can say it was a humorous read. Jones is a dead man but has no memory of what happened to him. As the days progress and he ends up becoming somewhat of a P.I. better known as Braineater Jones P.I.  he wants to solve not only his murder but why is not able to remember anything about who he once was. As Jones starts uncovering things his life might be in danger even more since there is only one way to kill a zombie and he needs to make sure that doesn't happen to him.

The weird thing about this book is that zombies and humans live among each other. They have their own area to where they should stay at and of course cops don't come and get into zombie business. But it is like they can co-exist without too much of a worry minus the smell and the dead look. 

I have to say the way this author came about with this story it wasn't gruesome at all to me it was far from it. Yes there is a bit of skin flaking off or maggots in a wound but other than that nothing gory which for me was okay in a book like this. We learn why the zombies or deadman keep up their normal activities such as walking, talking and not eating brains. It all has to do with the liquor.  

I thought Jones was a well developed character I really loved how he didn't give up on asking questions and finding out answers no matter the outcome. I also thought him having a head as a partner really put the icing on the cake in this zombie story, I kept imagining how he taped the head on his shoulder and was wondering how in the heck did it truly stay on.
