Sam Melvin, an underachieving e-reporter from a small town, changes forever when he meets turkeys that won't stay dead. You can shoot 'em, chop 'em, burn 'em — they come back stronger. The undead plague of poultry spreads uncontrollably, rocking the whole country. As Sam tracks down the zombie turkeys and how to eradicate them, his editor, Lisa Kambacher, nags him to turn his stories and expenses in on time. During their years of working together, Lisa has mellowed from bitchy into an irascible pinchpenny. Lisa snipes at Sam for plebeian writing but uses her intelligence to pursue the lucrative carnivorous turkey story. Sam and Lisa ricochet across the landscape, tracking turkeys and fleeing the bloodthirsty hordes. Careening from shell-shocked grocery store owners fighting turkeys crawling out of refrigerators, to machine-gunning turkey farmers, to secret militia, Sam and Lisa doggedly report. Throughout the turkey apocalypse, they dare ravaged cities, plow knee-deep in gore and corpses, and upload streams of zombie turkey video news to the world. With paranoid militias clashing with the federal government and unkillable turkeys, Sam and Lisa doubt their ability to survive. Sam and Lisa have no superpowers. If you have a heart condition or lack humor, you should not listen to Zombie Turkeys, no matter how much you want to find out what happens.
What members say
What did you like best about Zombie Turkeys? What did you like least?
There were times when the book was laugh out loud funny, but other times it was just cheesy. Also, repetitive use of the word "said" in the dialog portions was obnoxious.
Would you be willing to try another book from Mr. Andy Zach? Why or why not?
Yes. I want to know where his zombies go from here.
Which scene was your favorite?
Roland trying to get Lashaun to come out of the tree. She didn't want to come down, because the turkeys had pecked her backside and it was showing through her pants.
Did Zombie Turkeys inspire you to do anything?
Not eat turkey.
Any additional comments?
The male narrator did a good job, but the female narrator didn't differentiate very well between her different characters.
