I was caught a little off guard when I began reading this book. I hadn't read anything by Matt before and I thought I was going to be reading a type of "how-to" book similar to another Christian/Zombie book out there.
After getting over the initial shock of how slightly off-center this book is, I couldn't put it down.
Matt Mikalatos has written an allegory using vampires, zombies and werewolves. He places himself inside the story as if it actually took place in his neighborhood.
He has zombies chasing him but instead of eating him, they want to put ear buds in your ear so you will hear a podcast. He has a werewolf for a neighbor who is desperate for salvation. You'll be introduced to an old high school friend who happens to be a vampire along with a mad scientist and android with a not-so-secret lair.
It feels like reading a British story full of the classic monsters.
Do you enjoy the fictional work of C.S. Lewis? Do you enjoy late-night viewings of B-movie monsters? Night of the Living Dead Christian is exactly what you need. You will laugh out loud at the hilarious idiocy of the characters then be challenged as they explore a life as a Christian.
