“The Cellar”- a Review

This weekend, I read a zombie YA book called The Cellar – I enjoyed it. It was a fun little read.  The characters were acting out Romeo and Juliet as the school play. There was an element of the play as well in the plot of the  book as a whole- the star-crossed lovers with family issues. I enjoyed the  heck out of that Shakespeare tie in. 

There were definitely some icky scenes but what zombie story doesn’t have them? This book is by A.J. Whitten and it’s a quick read. If you like stories about monsters and also like Shakespeare, this is one for you. 

This book reminds me of a band I love called The National.  They have a song called Conversation 16.  One of the lines is “I was afraid I’d eat your brains”   check it out.  It’s a neat song.
