Javan Bonds takes readers to a pirate ship and zombies, what could go wrong?
The world has gone to Hell and Mo Collins is facing the end of the world on a replica pirate ship. Each night hordes of naked blue zombies flood the city streets Mo and his shipmates Crow just fish and try to survive. When another survive stumble across Mo and Crow's ship Mo has found a new lease on life. As Mom's reality starts to mimic fiction they need a new cast of characters to fill the each role; The Expert, The Tech, The Oracle, The Sacrifice and The Old Friend. Sometimes life bites but right now it's all about the zombies.
Unfortunately this book was a DNF for me, I found I was unable to become interested in the characters or plot and to be honest I read approximately 50% of this book and it was just boring. Nothing really happened, I understand the need to set up the world and characters this is supposed to be zombie and there were very few zombies to be had. It was more about getting the merry band of characters together. I think I would have liked the idea of Bond's zombies if there would have been more interaction with them, as they only come out at night, seem to go blue and are naked, lol.
I also had issue with the amount of slang of one of the characters that it was very hard to understand what he was saying even though the words were written right there and I just became annoyed each time he spoke. Maybe this makes me a prude or something when it comes to the English language, I don't know but I just wish that not every word that came out of this character's mouth was a swear or some type of slang or abbreviation of words.
This book was not for me but I'm definitely in the minority on this one based upon the reviews on Goodreads. Lots of people have enjoyed this book and found it extremely funny (maybe I have a different type of humour, once again I don't know, lol).
