It really isn't fair to compare this book to Max Brooks's excellent "World War Z." Where WWZ covers a fictional zombie "war," Browne's "Breathers" turns zombie fiction on its severed ear by introducing romance to the mix. Breathers is extremely humorous and touching and our hero Andy is a wonderful guide to living, or unliving, in a world where zombies and humans co-habitate uneasily.

I recommend this book to all fans of zombies, and their friends. Just don't eat the venison!

We realize that zombies have been in existance a …

n a slightly alternate world, starting in the 1930's, a small percentage of people who die come back as zombies. They are effectively immortal until they rot away to the point where they can no longer maintain their form. Zombies are barely tolerated by society. Although they retain the memories of their lives, they have no legal rights and are treated as stray animals if they bother living humans, or "breathers".  Andy Warner recently died in a car accident and came back as a zombie. He lives …
