Zombie Rain - Zach Sweets I wanted to like this book so much my teeth hurt with it. Because seriously, zombies and gay guys? Aw shucks, my birthday is in January! So, in the 4 minutes between finding out this book existed and buying it I put it on a pretty tall pedestal and maybe my hopes were kind of outrageous? I guess I was hoping for Cormac McCarthy's The Road but with zombies and gay sex, but what I got instead was more Syfy channel cheesy than Pulitzer prize. Maybe that was the point? Perhaps it was written as a sort of tongue-in-cheek nod to those so-bad-it's-good zombie films all over the place? Because if not, this book is impossible to take seriously. Wow, I'm really sorry, that was really hard for me to write.
