DNF: Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies by James Marshall

Product Description:

In a world where Zombies control banks and governments, only one young man sees the way things are and emerges from the Chaos and destruction: Guy Boy Man. While he tries to end human suffering worldwide and in his high school, Guy Boy Man meets a cute Pink-Haired girl named Babydoll15 who has a Unicorn that follows her everywhere. An Epic Romance begins, but forces Beyond Their Control are intent on keeping the young couple apart. One of those Forces may - or may not be! - Guy Boy Man's closest friend, a handsome African-American Ninja named Sweetie Honey; another could be four Exotically Beautiful, genetically engineered and behaviorally modified Eastern European Girls; yet another, the principal of their High School ...not to mention an impending standardized test known as the Zombie Acceptance Test! Will Guy Boy Man find a way to be with Baby Doll15 in a World Where Everyone Is Doomed to become either zombies or zombie food?

My Thoughts:

I am currently infatuated with the recent zombie trend. My favorite TV show is The Walking Dead and I even gave Pride and Prejudice and Zombies five stars. Really I'm a sucker for all things paranormal so when I saw this book I thought it would be right down my alley but sadly that wasn't the case. I knew from the description that it would over the top but the book was just too hard to follow. It is written in a weird format almost as if Guy Boy Man is just rambling from thought to thought without forming full sentences. That alone wasn't enough to throw me off so I kept reading but then the story was just way too far over the top. I didn't expect any realism but this was just downright weird. I got about halfway through the book and I just never got engaged in the story so I called it a day and gave up on this one. The target audience might be a mature young adult and I'm sure it's going to be a huge hit but I had to pass on finishing this one up.
