"Hello, this is Sam with Zombii Co. May I ask who I'm speaking with please?" It's 7 a.m. and I've just started my shift at the Zombie Apocalypse Call Center, run by Zombii Co. ... We sell people on the idea of the Zombie Apocalypse, but as I've learned since I started working here, no one really believes it.
I take a few deep breaths and put myself back into ready. When you're call support you have to find a way to put aside the emotions of the moment and focus on the problem. And the problem today is a Zombie Apocalypse that needs to be stopped.
The beginning of this book, with all the calls Sam has to deal with, is hilarious! You can tell the author once worked at a call center himself. All those people calling and asking Sam for Zombie help totally made me laugh, as did the stupid rules he has to follow. The rest of the book isn't quite as good, and there are some slow parts in the middle, but overall I thought this was an entertaining read. And if you like lots of zombie fighting, this book has plenty of it. Sam is an ordinary guy who messes up and makes mistakes, but who tries to do the right thing even when the people around him make it really hard. I liked him. And I loved when he finally stood up to his boss, and how tough he got by the end. Go Sam! I'm not sure I'll read the sequel, but I did really enjoy this one.
