Book Beginnings


RoseCity Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Fridays.  Simply post the first sentence from your current read on your blog, then link back to hers. 

“I slapped the head of my giant panda alarm clock, sending a metal spike into its adorable panda skull.” 

This is how Dana Fredsti starts her first main chapter of Plague Town.  I don’t normally read zombie novels, but this one looked like it had snappy dialog and funny pop culture references. 


I referred to the main chapter, because there are framing chapters in italics that have non-funny zombie attacks.  And as usual with suburban fantasy, I skipped a couple of sensuous scenes.  But Plague Town is a fresh take on the zombie scene.

I've been tempted to do that to my alarm more than once and mine isn't at all adorable. I tend to avoid zombie books myself but might give this one a try because of the humor. Happy reading!
