Dead Drunk is a 2013 Zombie novel from author Richard Johnson. If you are growing tired of the zombie genre like I am then I implore you to give this one a chance. Richard exceptionally marries comedy and tension and creates a strong main and supporting cast of characters. One of the strengths of this novel is how believable the supporting cast has been written.
For a first time author his ability to create a great flow without pacing and plot issues is to be commended. The story centres on a group of post College friends who set out to survive the Zombie Apocalypse “…One drink at a time”. I will be completely honest and admit that I wasn’t expecting to like this novel very much. There are hundreds of Zombie novels released every week and a vast majority of them aren’t very good. Dead Drunk absolutely exceeded every one of my expectations and made it on to my list for best novels I’ve read so far this year. I highly recommend this one.
