Summary

In Zombies, the absurdity of both life and death are on full display as the best and brightest of a high school prep school become tragically addicted to the latest drug craze - electric shocks from cardiac defibrillators.

Funny, caustic, bizarre, poignant - this story represents everything listeners have come to love and expect from Chuck Palahniuk.

Critic reviews

"Palahniuk is in sublime, caustic form; his story subjects even more wickedly bold." ( Independent)
"Savage, disturbing and frequently hilarious, this is writing at its boldest." ( Grazia)

26 mins for 1 credit?!

The story, such as it is, is good...but I can't believe this 26 minute story is being sold for 1 credit. It's even less than that because there's a summary at the beginning. Unbelievable...

First review ever

I have been listening on audible for over 3 years and never felt motivated enough to write a review on anything, but I've had to listen to this shirt book again and again for the past couple days, it immediately became my new favorite book and I've been showing it to everyone, I've been a long time Chuck Palahniuk fan but now, if I ever got the chance to meet him, I'd like to personally thank him for this story in particular

I’d give it zero if I could

I’m a HUGE HUGE fan of the author but after this and the last book? I feel kind of betrayed with how crappy they were. Also can someone stop him from narrating his own books? He has a horrible voice that distracts from the work.
Really disappointed Chuck

Disappointing.

I had high hopes for this one considering its author is usually very good but when it was over I felt like I had wasted about 20 minutes of my life.

An ok performance and short story

It's an ok story, wasn't overly pushed on the performance however. It's definitely worth the money and it's worth listening to but it wouldn't be something I would recommend.
