“Oh. I need to catch my breath. You see I am not sure if I ever stopped laughing from word one of this story. When the Pandemic Transviral Apocalypse of 2013 breaks out, Chandler is a freshman in college, still living at home, and working at Beefcake Bob’s the local burger joint and apparent ground zero for the spread of the zombie virus in the United States. This brilliantly hilarious young man and his zany extended family have no idea what is about to hit them. Chandler has maintained a crush on Zane Addison, the football star of their high school and essentially hands-off demigod. On the night Chandler serves up the sack of death burgers that will unleash the inner zombie in many, Zane comes to his defense when a few other football jerks taunt poor Chandler at the drive in window. The story that then springs from the collective team of Knight and Day is a roller coaster of fun that carries you breathlessly along as Chandler determinedly saves the now zombified Zane and the two fall hopelessly in love.
These two authors are, admittedly, known for their humor and over the top characters. But this little story surpassed my wildest expectations. It was hysterical. This was a tender first love that morphed into comedy genius. There was not one wasted moment in this novella. Each character, wonderfully fresh and well drawn, was not only likeable but endearing. Our hero, Chandler, was a classic snarky teen with the mind of a forty year old. Zane was the quintessential sweet, mildly confused jock who would eventually stand up for his man and save the day. Chandler’s family…well…words fail me. They were the most absurdly sweet and yet oddly crass group of adults I have ever encountered and each one of these characters were larger than life and oh so very funny. This was comedy writing at its finest.”
