Character Connection - Zombies

We all have characters we love. Let's spotlight these fantastic creations! Whether you want to be friends with them or you have a full-blown crush on them, you know you love them and want everyone else to love them too!

I think most of you were expecting this sooner or later:
My pick for this week is zombies!

I love zombies, but it have to be proper zombies. No intelligent zombies, who do not go on rampages, but instead fall in love and stuff for me! I want my zombies to be raving, flesh craving monsters who cause mayhem and chaos. I love to read a good zombie story where the hero has to fight for his/her life and where zombies are a serious threat for you health and brain. Give me a story like that and you've got one happy pig.

I totally agree! I like the other kinds, but I will always have a special place in my heart for the old flesh eating, mindless zombies.

I honestly can't remember if I've ever read a zombie book before. That's odd. I'm not a huge horror fan, but I do pick them up when the mood strikes. One zombie book I am interested in is Zombie Haiku: Good Poetry for Your...Brains by Ryan Mecum. Some of my GoodReads friends have reviewed it and included quotes, and it sounds hilarious! Here's one they quoted:

"Little old ladies
speed away in their wheelchairs
frightened meals on wheels"

Maybe not exactly what you're looking for, but I think I'd like it! I do love the zombie farmgirl pic!

Sounds like a fun book actually: I love zombies and I love haiku. A win/win situation

I think they would have to count as your favorite antihero, or maybe favorite threat?

I don't particularly like zombies, but i understand your love for thrills and zombie stories :)

You're right: I've been subconsciously waiting for you to feature zombies! LOL!

I've never read a zombie book, either, though I love zombie movies.

I've never read a zombie book before. Horror has never been my genre, but they are an interesting species. I love the Zombie farm girl, the flower almost makes her look civilized.

Thanks for your comments every one.
The picture of the zombie farm girl is from the cardgame 'zombie fluxx' btw

Zombies were big at BEA. I actually picked up 3 such books for my husband, and I started to flip through one (Pariah by Bob Fingerman) and was hooked. I'm about halfway through, now, and so far, no intelligent zombies so you might like it.
