A Drizzle of Zombies


A Drizzle of Zombies (The Annals of Absurdity – 1) by Joshua Price

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Four unlikely heroes. One absurd undertaking.

Like any good supervillain, Dr. Malevolent robs banks, but when the incompetent Captain Rescue intercepts her latest heist, they accidentally trigger a most undeadly threat: zombies! The two sworn enemies must band forces to save the world, dragging along the perfect allies: a shotgun-toting cop, and… a bunny?

The group ventures to the heart of the undead sea to discover who wants to annihilate humanity. Because zombies are only the beginning. Dun dun dun.

The flood starts in… A Drizzle of Zombies.

The story starts out with Dr. Malevolent robbing a bank. The evil genius has though this through and with some bumbling idiot lackeys has robbed the bank. But then Captain Rescue steps up and tries to stop her, mind you Captain Rescue is another bumbling idiot that wins through dumb luck. There are no skills, just expensive gadgets.

But the lackeys have discovered a strange green goo from the robbery. What they don’t know is that it makes zombies and these two are the first ones. The zombies multiply like rabbits and it is up to Captain Rescue and Dr. Malevolent to save the world. Ok, that’s a lie, Dr. Malevolent to save the world and try to keep Captain Rescue from becoming a zombie or worse.

This story is funnier than hell. The villain is the smart one that saves the day and learns that she likes doing so. The hero is an idiot and it’s impressive that he hasn’t killed himself. But the best part is the big pink bunny.

This is a great humor story. You will be laughing all the way through it. I can’t wait to read others stories from Joshua Price.

I received this book for free from the Library Thing Early Reader Program.
