I'm not much for Christmas stories, but the title of this one caught my eye so I entered a contest to win it. And then won it.I never read the first book, because I typically stay away from books with a heart on the cover, so there were some parts that I didn't really get. However, S.G. did a good job of filling in most of the blanks. Behind the story of a thinking zombie is the story of what Christmas is like for the child of a single alcoholic mother. It tugged at the heart strings a little, a [...]

Zombies? Santa Claus? Combined together can they form a respectable Christmas story? Yes, yes, and surprisingly enoughs! Ok, I bought this book last year because it was on the clearance table at Hastings book store for $1. No, I'm not a fan of zombiest even a little bit. Just too gross and messy for me. But, I am a fan of huge discounts. (90% off) woo-hoo! (All Life of a Book Addict members know what I mean.) Somehow the fingers just picked the book up and the eyes took over. This book was well [...]

Sweet Christmas-themed zombie story, ISZESC is funny, sentimental and caustically astute, as in this passage: "When I say I'm a zombie, I'm not talking about the typical mindless, shambling ghouls you'll find on the screen at your local cineplex. Most movie zombies are brain-dead monsters that lack any spark of humanity and are unrelenting in their single-minded purpose to devour anyone in their path. Kind of like politicians. . . "

Andy's story is one that will tug at your heart, make your flesh crawl, have you seeing red, and tickle every funny bone in your body. It seems that our undead narrator has had one hell of a year; going from a voice in the dark for zombie rights to a lab rat for tests unfit for the smarmiest of rodents. It's a good thing that he can still manage some snark with his lips sewn shutright?This is a zombie read with real brains. In fact, in most cases the zombies are not only smarter than the "breath [...]

I read this book in about two hours. If even that. I took it with me to the bathroom for a bubble bath, while I made dinner, etc. This book was AMAZING. & I can't say that enough. Not just for the fact that its about zombies, which is enough of a reason to want to read it, but it's a story about a father's love for his daughter. You really need to pick up this book & read it, because you will be hooked on it. I can promise you that. It's hilarious, well written & heartwarming. I love [...]

I really enjoyed this book. I don't think it's a prerequisite to have read Breathers, even though this is a sequel. There are some characters and parts where it might help to better inform the reader. This is a light, funny read that I'd recommend to anyone who likes zombies or just wants a unique Christmas story.

Don't know why, but enjoy a good zombie story, guess "I'm a multifaceted guy Philosopher. Zombie handler." This is a fun look at a Santa Claus zombie who escapes from a research lab and tries to spread some Christmas cheer.

I got a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review through the First Reads program. Thanks to Gallery Books and for allowing me the opportunity to review this book. I read Browne’s book Breathers when it was released a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I was really looking forward to reading this book as well. This ended up being a fun, yet short, zombie Christmas read. It was gory, disturbing, entertaining, and even a bit heart-warming.This book picks up where Breathers left off. [...]

I Saw Zombies Eating Santa Claus by S. G. BrowneMy initial reaction to this book was less than stellar. I made an assumption (you can guess where this is going.) that is was going to be roughly in the sheer idiocy category. Well, imagine my surprise when I enjoyed the book. The story is the deprivation of zombies by society and the zombie side of the story.Andy Warner portrays a poignant, abused figure in this tale of discrimination. I’m not sure black humor aptly describes the book or the plo [...]

Andy's back!If you loved Breathers: A Zombie's Lament, you're going to love this one. It's written with the same fast wit and imagery that we've grown accustomed to with S.G. Browne's work and I couldn't be happier having the chance to read it before the release date on October 30th, 2012.We start off the story with Andy, in a zombie research facility in Portland, Oregon. He was the leader of a zombie uprising, after which a lot of new zombie laws were put into place. There's a tip of the hat to [...]

A fun story with surprising heart! I almost gave it 3 stars but the last few chapters really made it better!

I was a First Read Winner of this book and loved it. We find out what it is like to see the world from the perspective of the Zombie, something completely different and fresh. It captured my attention from page one, it had enough gore to satisfy any Zombie fan, but it was also very tenderhearted and sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the story line and can't wait to read other works from S.G. Browne. Not your average Christmas Story thats for sure. I highly recommend it.

Above average outing. Nice to check in with the non-breathers again. I feel the secondary tale is what made this short a good read.

REVIEW ALSO ON: bibliomantics/2012/10/26/jThis sequel to Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament (S.G. Browne’s first published novel) is every bit as wonderful- if not more wonderful than its predecessor. I could read a whole series of books set in the Breather‘s universe! Set one year after the first book, I Saw Zombies contains some spoilers to the original including the fate of its main characters. But, if you merely want to read a, “… Holly-jolly- zombie Christmas” story about a girl and h [...]

Suite de "Comment j'ai cuisiné mon père, ma mère et retrouvé l'amour", on retrouve dans "Le jour où les zombies ont dévorés le père Noel", Andy, en bien mauvaise posture. (Mais en réalité, est il possible, dans sa condition, d'être autrement qu'en mauvaise posture?) - D'expériences bizarres en missions commandos/sauvetage, notre zombie préféré n'a pas vraiment le temps de s'ennuyer. * Pour être franche, j'ai moins aimé ce deuxième opus, moins travaillé à mon sens que le premi [...]

I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while now and wasn’t disappointed! An entertaining and satirical read, I tore through this one like undead teeth through a Breather’s jugular. Definitely going to be reading more of this author.

This is a sequel to "Breathers" that works as a self-contained book set in the same universe. The same mixture of pathos and dark humor that made the first book so charming can be found here in abundance.

A quick and cute read about a modern zombie who happens to look like Santa Clause.

4 Reasons that you should be reading “I Saw Zombies Eating Santa Claus”Today, instead of defending my love for witty low-brow literature, I'm going to jump right into the review and tell you why YOU, early fan and follower of Blake before he gets famous, lets fame get to his head, and buys a mansion with a mote full of crocodiles, should be reading “I Saw Zombies Eating Santa Claus,” by S. G. Browne. Reason 1: Zombies we care about, that would still eat us. In “I Saw Zombies Eating San [...]

Want a novel with a zombie dressed like Santa Claus? You got it.Alex Winter, the undead narrator of Breathers, finds himself the object of incessant experimentation and torment at a government research facility. He escapes and, because of his long white hair and beard, quickly dresses as Santa Claus. The story that follows is an amusing little Christmas tale, a blend of humor, horror, and holiday cheer.A few thoughts: - I’ve read Browne’s short story “Zombie Gigolo,” so I can attest that [...]

The bestselling author of the hilariously entertaining zombie book, Breathers, has a Christmas treat for you: a zombie holiday novella featuring some of the characters you’ve come to love from Breathers. It’s a Christmas miracle like no other; one you won’t soon forget.Andy Warner is having problems. Other than being a zombie, he’s also a test subject in a horrible lab, where the employees care nothing about their zombie guinea pigs and will poke and prod, burn and dismember, and do what [...]

I won this in a giveaway.I'm not a zombie person, but this sounded funny.I wasn't disappointed.Browne puts a lot of snark into this with some silly twists and turns. Zombies aren't just brainless things, but pretty much sentients with a taste (and need) for human flesh. They remember their old memories, and some of them stay with their families for some time. Zombieism isn't a random disease either, but a random mutation. Some people reanimate after death; others just die.But then we humans dec [...]

I felt Breathers was pretty perfect on its own and didn't think I wanted or needed a sequel, but I am a huge fan of the author and won this book in a contest on his blog.*READ BOOK ONE FIRST, AS THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR BREATHERS: A ZOMBIE'S LAMENT*It was satisfying to see, after the ending of Breathers, that at least Andy, everyone's favorite angsty Zombie, survived his zombie last stand. He enters a bit of a "chosen one" sort of path here. He's different for some reason, which is why he gets [...]

This cute, amusing, gross, and kind of sad story about the unlikely meeting between a re-animated Zombie undead and a little girl who needs some special Christmas cheer is heartwarming but does have some disgusting details. Hey, dead bodies are ICKY even when they belong to nice people.

The title alone was enough to pique my interest. The premise hooked me even more. From there, all it took was page one to get me entrenched into the delightful world of Breathers and Zombies.Admittedly, I was expecting something along the lines of Christopher Moore's raucous hilarity. I was more reminded of Dave Barry's quirky, lively, fast-paced style, which was no less joyous. At any rate, it was quite enjoyable, and the entire time I felt eager to know what happened next - what is Andy going [...]

Maybe I just don't get the satire. Maybe it's a meta book, where the story itself is less important than the overall feeling. Because the plot moved like a zombie; plodding, brainless and slow. But the story didn't. Is he satirizing Christmas stories by putting a 'zombie' in it? Or is he satirizing 'zombie' books by putting what could just as easily been a diabetic prisoner in it? Either way, it just didn't work for me. The book is a sequel, but it still takes a quarter of it to set up the plot, [...]

Je ne vous le cache pas, le premier opus des aventures zombiesques d’Andy Warner avait été un immense coup de coeur! L’idée de S.G. Browne était magique, pleine de cynisme et en même temps terriblement drôle. Alors, à l’idée de retrouver mes zombies préférés dans une « suite » j’étais d’avance toute excitée. Mais je dois avouer que, même si j’ai passé encore un très bon moment, j’ai été un peu moins emballé que pour Comment j’ai cuisiné mon père, ma mère [...]

This was a gift that I finally got a chance to read. It seems to be a trio and this is the middle book. An interesting take on zombies - the only thing that makes them a zombie is that they are the undead and that they eat humans to keep themselves alive and keeps them from rotting. Other then that they can be perceived as "Breathers" This is about Andy who became a zombie after a car wreck that left his wife dead. Apparently it's a gene that's passed done, but not everyone is affected. This sec [...]

I finished this WAY before Christmas, and forgot to update my status here (damn xmas). I loved this tale about as much as I'd loved the first novel by Browne entitled Breathers. I remember meeting Browne at ZomBCon a few years ago and asking if he'd ever consider continuing on with the tale of Andy. I'm so glad he did. This was a perfect novel to read for Christmas time, whether you love Christmas or zombies. The story continues with Andy being in a research facility for Zombies. We follow him a [...]
