However some of the comedy is too slapstick even if the images are funny like when John stands on a zombies head and starts wearing them like slippers before kicking the head off later as a weapon. Another problem with this book is it doesn't just follow John's story but several other people in Runcorn whose stories doesn't even interact with his (at least in this book) and aren't as exciting. In the worst of the non-John chapters a shop keeper fights zombies from behind his desk in a cliché way and stupidly keeps his shop door open at the end.
Overall this was an amusing book because of John's narration and the comedy. But it's too silly in places and the chapters on other people let the book down meaning I can only give it 3 stars.
One final note on this book is based on a small Web series which unfortunately deviates from the first book as the brother is helping John find his daughter but is still worth a watch.
