Synopsis (via B&N)


For John Lennon, a young, idealistic zombie guitarist with dreams of global domination, Liverpool seems the ideal place to form a band that could take over the world. In an inspired act, Lennon kills and reanimates local rocker Paul McCartney, kicking off an unstoppable partnership. With the addition of newly zombified guitarist George Harrison and drummer/Seventh Level Ninja Lord Ringo Starr, the Beatles soon cut a swath of bloody good music and bloody violent mayhem across Europe, America, and the entire planet.

In this searing oral history, discover how the Fab Four climbed to the Toppermost of the Poppermost while stealing the hearts, ears, and brains of smitten teenage girls. Learn the tale behind a spiritual journey that resulted in the dismemberment of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Marvel at the seemingly indestructible quartet’s survival of a fierce attack by Eighth Level Ninja Lord Yoko Ono. And find out how the boys escaped eternal death at the hands of England’s greatest zombie hunter, Mick Jagger.

Through all this, one mystery remains: Can the Beatles sublimate their hunger for gray matter, remain on top of the charts, and stay together for all eternity? After all, three of the Fab Four are zombies, and zombies live forever. . . .

My Thoughts:

This book is a different take on the Beatles's history. A very different take.

I found the book to be full of humor and witty dialogue. It was an amusing read, but for me, it just wasn't my kind of book. I just think I wasn't in the right frame of mind for this particular kind of book.

Don't get me wrong, I actually think lots of people will enjoy this book. I mean who couldn't love reading how John Lennon was turned into a zombie or how John turned Paul into one, or better yet why Ringo Starr wasn't turned into one? The book is definitely full of gross, funny passages that I think will tickle a few funny bones here and there.
