Everyone knows zombies aren’t real, no matter how fun. You don’t have to be a med student to know the dead do not get up and walk around in real life. Anyone who’s buried a pet in the backyard knows the dead don’t walk. They don’t even lurch.
So Giovanni is stunned when his patient sits up in the morgue and starts scolding. The night-shift was supposed be a relief, a chance to study in quiet and off-set ridiculous student loans. Babysitting a huge dog and a dead voodoo mambo were not part of the plan. Now he’s got to convince an unbelieving medical community to take action, so he can get back to learning about the dead – not the undead!
Giovanni Goes to Med School Review
While I wouldn’t go so far as to call it hilarious, Giovanni Goes to Med School was extremely amusing and a wonderful short read to re-animate my interest in the zombie genre.
Kathy Bryson writes with a light touch, but still goes to the proper lengths to get across how utterly disgusting a dead body is, whether it’s crying out for your brains, or just scolding you for being an idiot. Poor Giovanni. You can’t help but feel sorry for the guy. All he wants to do is get a job and get through med school. You want to root for him, but at the same time, the guy’s kind of an idiot. He definitely doesn’t choose the smartest ways to try to get his points across.
Overall, at 70 pages, this is a quick afternoon read that will gross you out and make you giggle at the same time. If you’re like me and pretty much devour anything in the zombie genre, I definitely recommend you check it out on Amazon. It’s not your typical zombie story by far, but that’s okay, innit? Sometimes you need atypical stuff to revive you.
I’m not sorry for puns contained in this Giovanni Goes to Med School Review, especially as none of them were exactly intentional. They just sort of burbled out of me, sort of like gas escaping a dead body.
