Why, you go to a zombie support group that meets twice a week!! There are many rules and restrictions which zombies have to abide by and if they don’t? But after meeting a zombie called Ray who introduces him to the lip-smacking pleasure of human flesh, everything begins to change This page was last edited on 28 Decemberat I don’t think I’ll be eating ribs in any barbecue joints in the near future after reading this.
Add the hot sauce to the meat; stir to combine. Views Read Edit View history. Debut novelist Browne branches out from his mostly horror-related short stories and delivers a rousing entry in the Rom-Zom-Com genre.
It’s a quick read, and it is just so, so good. There is only one scene where Andy finally acts like a zombie and chomps on his psychiatrists face. The first half was amazing, but the second half kinda floundered all over the place, with tone issues and random shit happening and what not. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. One of these okay a good number of them, dude doesn’t shut up is john mayer talking about people telling him they like his early work.
Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament by S.G. Browne
Zombies in “Breathers” are a little different, in fact the concept is quite original to me and was fun to read. If you’ve never had a masturbatory fantasy about what would happen if Chuck Palahniuk and Alan Ball had a zombie love child, then you probably wouldn’t understand.

April Zombies need human flesh to stay aliv Second reading: There’s no point in attempting to fit in with others who are clearly unlike you and who shun you, screw them, there’s no right or wrong, do what makes you happy and what feels right for you.
It also shows the softer more cuddlier side of a zombie.
He gets an extra star for some of the details and the world-building, but this feels like amateur hour that stumbled into print. Fight the power, of course. As he seeks to survive in a world that hates zombies, Andy must regularly consume formaldehyde while all he and every zombie really wants is to eat human fleshwhich is forbidden.
But zombies come back with as much of these aspects of humanity as they left with. True, there’s no undead fight club or un dead models breatherd over a dentist chair, but I like to think If you’ve never had a masturbatory fantasy about what would happen if Chuck Palahniuk and Alan Ball had a zombie love child, then you probably wouldn’t understand.
Honestly, gs it as a cop-out for trying to weave emotions into a zombie and making us, the readers, understand. This was my first Zombie book, so I’m not sure how the others are, but this took the Zombie’s side, and showed us their point of view.
I do believe this book had the potential to rule in all sorts of ways, but it kind of let me down towards the end. The natural urge for survival? Knowing this, it was still a little off putting for me when Andy, the main character, killed and ate his parents. Here Andy meets the beautiful Rita, suicide victim, who eats formaldehyde-laced lipstick to help keep her preserved.
But all that changes when he goes to an Undead Anonymous meeting and finds kindred souls in Rita, an impossibly sexy recent suicide with a taste for the formaldehyde in cosmetic products, and Jerry, a twenty-one-year-old car-crash victim with an exposed brain and a penchant for Renaissance pornography.
Oh, that and maybe find out if there’s anything to that whole eating braaaaaaaaaaains thing Mar 06, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: But if you’ve never had to drink VO5 shampoo and sometimes conditioner to get your formaldahyde fix, or had your arm ripped out of its socket only to be beaten over the head with it, or been shot in the face by a Social Security Administration guard, or been traumatized by frat boys in a cemetery, then you probably wouldn’t understand what I’m talking about.
However, there is just something missing for me – I didn’t particularly connect with or care much about any of the characters, which is always a disappointment. Simply put, I got what I wanted out of Breathers, only more so. Macabre to the core, it was surprising how human Browne made the zombies feel. This book has it all – the blood and gore of typical zombie fare, but also romance who wouldn’t love a twenty-something hottie, even with the stitches at her wrists and throat, who happens to eat lipstick like it was going out of stylehumor I’m sorry, but breather disguised as venison is pure geniusmurder the opening scene is a husband-wife body part freezer bonanzaand an undead support group yes, they even have field trips.
