  1. For the most part I really enjoyed this book, but I think one of the main turn offs for me was B s father He s racist, abusive, manipulative, and an all around terrible human being I felt like it took awhile to lead up to the massive break out zombie scenes and I wish we would have had zombies in this book, because I was expecting It felt like we only got 20 pages of zombies and I WANT MORE ZOMBIES xD I m still looking forward to continuing on with this series, but I wasn t super impressed by [...]


  2. LET ME MAKE THIS PERFECTLY CLEAR Because I have had far too many derogatory comments on this review from too many people This review is MY opinion and mine alone Just because you looove this book and looove Darren Shan does not give you any right to come to my space and tell me that I am ignorant, or stupid, or wrong, or that I just didn t understand the book I despised this book, therefore I ranted about it That is called MY HONEST OPINION You re entitled to yours, are you not Well so am I And [...]


  3. This book had a lot of potential to be REALLY AMAZING but it wasn t that amazing The book mostly focused on B s life and hearing about the zombie attacks elsewhere, as well as her home life and relationship with her dad Her dad is a terrible person, and you can have a terrible person be a good character, but this was not the case He was SUPER racist and abusive, and his racism fed into B s life in many ways There was also less zombies than I was expecting and I was disappointed by that They didn [...]


  4. After seeing the cover and liking it, I was quite enthused to read it to read a book about zombies, Darren Shan style, from the master of horror I haven t read any of Darren Shan s previous works this was my first But I do know many, including Amber, devour and love anything he writes so I was expecting something spectacular and horrific from Zom B I haven t read many zombie centric books lately, so Zom B was the first for a while Andrew Fukuda s The Hunt could count though but that s different [...]


  5. The zombie apocalypse outbreak happened and the societal fallout is just beginning Thus begs the questionyone ready for a quasi racist no good punk hero Like the Cirque du Freak, Darren Shan has no qualms about showing blood, gore and many, many deaths We follow B Smith, the quasi racist, along with a band of merry friends to deal the initial outbreak There s the world at large and the meltdown of B s personal life B s Dad is a racist, wife beating monster and Mom s a compliant head in the sand [...]


  6. Full disclosure I m a HUGE Darren Shan fan and a poet, apparently I ve been a fan ever since the final book in The Saga of Darren Shan book was published and I read them all in one go That s twelve books, people So my review may be SLIGHTLY biased, because I love all his books.Also, I m not going to write an in depth review, because it ll be hard not to spoil the mind blowing twist that happens towards the end And Darren included a note and asked people not to mention that the main character is [...]


  7. I will not review this It is impossible not to give anything away This book is amazing, nail biting, UNBELIEVABLE Read it ASAPUpdate I m reading other people s thoughts about this book and I m looking at negative reviews I m just shocked at the 1 stars Not because I loved this book, but because of the reason they rated it so low Everyone hates this book because B is racist WHAT That s the point, Darren Shan creates a story where you re supposed to HATE the protagonist Someone please explain the [...]


  8. What the crap I m so lost, made it about 60 70% through the book, there was like one chapter on zombies and that was it All I got from this is racism and abuse.



  9. Trust no one Always question what you re told Don t believe the lies that people feed you, even if they re your teachers or parents At the end of the day you have to work out for yourself what s right or wrong B is a jerk A racist jerk Although she constantly tries to tell you otherwise.Zom B is not simply a horror book that deals with zombies and cannibalism I applaud Darren Shan for trying to also include topics such as abuse and racism in his books that are clearly meant for children What I p [...]


  10. Chosen for an easier read after a few longer books Fit the bill and an interesting enough book for all that.Definitely at the level of its age target but still manages to balance a bit of action and nastiness with a bit of a moral message and character set up.


  11. this book is bone chilling horror.apart for the downright scary moments it makes you think about what anyone would do when the world goes to shit.


  12. Can we talk about how misleading the prologue is Man, I thought this book was going to be chock FULL of zombie beheadings Double tap But no, it was about this teenage boy, B, and his own metaphorical zombie life Okay, later on in the book, there are REAL zombies, and throughout the book, there are and news stories about the zombie plague making its way around the world.B is a bully raised by a bully I don t think that it is right that he bullies others, nor do I wish to justify it He s got th [...]


  13. This is not the zombie book you are looking for A bad Star Wars pun aside, Zom B is just not a book I would recommend reading, even for the zombie lovers among us The book deals with racism but not in a way that is informative or that teaches us any lessons It s just one slam after another on a variety of different races and with seemingly no purpose in doing so except for setting up an ending that was painfully obvious from the get go It isn t tackling issues, it s putting them up on display Th [...]



  14. Zom B is a new series from author Darren Shan I have been a big fan of Shan s work since his Cirque Du Freak Series The Vampire s Assisstant and so far Zom B does not disappoint At first I though that the story was going to be all about the zombie apocalypse but it turned out that it is also about the real horrors that we face in the everyday world The protagonist is a teenager named B who lives in London B likes hanging out with friends, listening to music and getting into trouble The zombie at [...]


  15. This book was a freaking whirlwind of insane zombie activity Now I have to admit the beginning of the book got me really started But then it got kind of boring The life and story of B, a week before the zombie attacks actually occur in London Is it weird, that I think that this book is refreshing in the sense that it s different from other zombie books, because of the racism I mean, you don t get that many people who like writing about racism like this If you haven t read Warm Bodies please read [...]


  16. I don t really know how to start this review because I don t really have any strong feelings about this book It was so mediocre and so average I didn t really have much to say about it It was a little dull but it wasn t necessary boring Most of the characters were okay but I cannot say I really cared whether they lived or died, they were all too bland to form opinions on Obviously I had problems with B s dad though How could I not He was a monster While I enjoyed Zom B, I felt it was a little sl [...]


  17. What WHAT.I haven t read any Darren Shan in about a year But he s basically my favorite author This book reminded me of that.Somehow Shan mixes good horror and good psychologically significant characters as well The main character, B, really illustrates what it s like to live in an abusive family with an offensively racist father Seriously, it s totally offensive and upset me B also illustrates what it s like from the psychological perspective of a bully not that I condone it, but it would be be [...]


  18. OH MY GOD I feel safe in saying that this book gave me one of the biggest shocks in my reading life WOW Did not see that coming.The book as a whole was pretty good, although it was almost halfway through before I started getting into it I like that this book will make kids think about racism, but I think some might start reading and think, wtf I thought this was supposed to be about zombies The most important thing, though, is that it left me wanting to know what happens next.



  19. After finishing, the Demonata, his second long running series back in 2009, Darren Shan seems to have been in a bit of a rut for the past couple of years The Saga of Larten Crepsley seemed, in my opinion, to be a rehash of old stories, entertaining enough but nothing original an unnecessary addition to a bygone era I was similarly disappointed with the thin executioner, though for different reasons Zom B, however, seems to represent Darren Shan s return to form.I approached this book with trepid [...]


  20. Zom B Look at that name, and that cover Cool But look at the name beneath the title COOLIO Another Darren Shan Series Straight into the book Gripping, terrifying, gory, Zombastic Dot.Then I believe its safe to say that a city will be totally wiped out by the Zombies in the prologue, people die, people turn, people eat brains But the sad news is The world won t believe it when they see it on the Telly, atleast B Smith s family won t.B Smith is our brand new state of the art protagonist B s dad he [...]


  21. Originally reviewed on A Reader of Fictions.My only prior experience with Darren Shan was the first book in the Cirque du Freak series, which we read for my Young Adult Services class in Library School I remember mostly enjoying it, but for some potty humor kind of stuff I really could have done without I was expecting something similar here, something for younger YA that like violence in humor Actually, I think the gore and darker tone of this one definitely skew it up than I was expecting, de [...]


  22. I m going to start by saying I love zombie books, in fact, not just books but also movies and TV series Darren Shan is well known for his Cirque Du Freak series and ZOM B seems to be exploding onto the scene with books from the series showing up everywhere It s because of this and a little loose change to spend that I was enticed into picking up the book and giving it a go The subject matter and eye catching cover made it stand out from the crowd and my wanting to delve into a post apocalyptic, [...]


  23. I ve never read a Darren Shan book, but everything I heard about him is positive, so as soon as I saw Zom B, I had to buy it A zombie book written by an author with an excellent reputation, set in the UK Yep, I was hooked in.Zom B is a quick read, taking me just over two hours to get through, and definitely has a one chapter feeling There are also some awesome illustrations throughout the book, which I wasn t expecting but added an extra touch to the story.Zom B begins with the story of a zombi [...]


  24. Still not surprised about some things, but I think the plot lacked some luster Of course at the end I don t understand it and I ve never read the rest of the series so I am extremely curious as the how the heck this is actually going to turn out Does she turn it a half zombie thing So typically before I rate a book I look to see what others have though of it I had expected there to be an outcry from those offended by the obscene amount of racism in this book But I am surprised about how many peo [...]


  25. B is a high school kid who lives in London with a racist, abusive alcoholic father, and a mom who doesn t stand up for herself B hangs out with a tough group of friends, and has gotten a bit of a reputation When the zombie attacks that happened in Ireland which B and family did not believe were real come breaking through the front door of B s high school, race and reputation don t mean much After all, zombies don t notice skin color when digging through someone s skull to devour their brains.Wel [...]


  26. Darren Shan s Zom B is a new series that only Darren can deliver Just like how his Cirque Du Freak The Vampire s Assistant left me captivated, Zom B executed the same result Although the cover and title suggests a story solely based on zombies, it shifts to the real dismays that many us face on a daily basis Readers are taken to London where they are introduced to a teenager, simply named B She is the typical teenage girl who hangs out with friends but gets into the usual troubles When a zombie [...]


  27. This read referenced racism a little too much and, in all honesty, I don t know if I d want my kid to read it The main character s parents were overstating, but not by much subscribers to the KKK s mailing list and were really bad influences for any child The mother was abused talked to like an idiot The father was an abuser and all around asshat I just didn t see the light in any of them The MC even questions his own view on anyone who isn t white He s also a thief and is not ashamed to admit i [...]
