My Life as a White Trash Zombie

My Life as a White Trash Zombie - Between 3 and 4 stars, rounded up.First novel with a zombie as a main character that I could read and enjoy (I've read a couple with zombie love scenes that I had to put down, but this one had no missing body parts, and also no explicit scenes, so I could deal). A novel where a zombie could be the hero, even with the gross dietary restrictions. I liked that the character grew and changed - Angel starts out a drug addict and works hard to change her life, even as she finds out about her new existence. I liked Rowland's take on zombies and it will be interesting to see where this goes. It was light on action, except for the last chapter, and some things felt too rushed in the end, but overall I liked it. I'll read the next one.
