We read this for my book club. I would never have finished it otherwise. Whereas one member of the book group enhanced our appreciation of the book by saying that he felt the zombies were a metaphor for alzheimer's disease and creating new ways of looking at the narrative, I had to say I found it tedious and pretentious. Too much Wittgenstein, not enough Night of the Living Dead.
