Ninja versus Pirate featuring Zombies by James Marshall

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 BABY DOLL15 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 behaviourally 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??!!

Release Date 15th May 2012

OK, first up, how can you not be curious about this book with that title? It has Ninjas, it has Pirates and it has Zombies ...... it has something for everyone!

I was immediately confused by this book (in a good way) by the first sentence - it takes, like, 3 pages! And yes, it was confusing to read but it at least gets you ready for the rest of the book - which, at times, can be confusing as hell. One of my favourite parts (which I even highlighted in my kindle. I loved it that much) is GuyBoyMan's description of the pluralisation of the word Ninja. All I'm going to say is, he says Ninjas so as not to confuse blind people.

It's never explained whether the whole zombie ruling thing is real or just some weird facet of GuyBoyMan's imagination or even some sort of hallucination. At times, it seems like it must all be in his head but others it seems like it's all real and others know about the zombies too.

I think this book is definitely worth a read but don't read it if you're going to take it seriously, I went into this book thinking it was all a bit of fun and that's exactly what I got.
