Item Details

Baker & Taylor
B wonders about a zombie outbreak in Ireland and finds himself struggling for survival while forging precarious alliances in the serpentine corridors of his high school.

Hachette Book Group
When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B's racist father thinks it's a joke-- but even if it isn't, he figures, it's ok to lose a few Irish.

B doesn't fully buy into Dad's racism, but figures it's easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn't work, B doesn't hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks.

That is, until zombies attack the school. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers.

A very entertaining novella! It's a very quick read (I did it in about a day). The protagonist with not many likable characteristics is something that is unique to Shan's writing, and I believe he pulls it off very well.

Visit Darren Shan's website and look up Zom-B it explains why he did that.

I was rather confused as to whether the main character, B, was a male or a female. Near the end of the book the father called B his daughter but earlier near the beginning B was being teased about walking with one of the girls of the group. If anyone can clear this up it would be highly appreciated.
