I love za books. I have read all of the major ones and many of the little known ones in the genre. I'm looking to take a little break from all the heavy themes and devour some post apocalypse books that have a humorous slant to them. Any recommendations for me?

Thanks!

Not ZPAW, but Seth Grahame- Smith "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" has a certain macabre humor.

The Zombie Fallout series by Mark Tufo has a lot of humor.

I kind of lost interest around book three or so, but it wasn't terrible.

Is Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland on Netflix?

Not books, but probably the best of ZA humor.

Black Tide Rosong series by John Ringo.

1) Under a Graceyard Sky
2) To Sail a Darking Sea
3) Islands of Rage and Hope
4) Strands of Sorrow

I've just finished #1 and am currently on #2. It has humor, and some rather overdone tropes and clichés as well. The main characters are über-prepared, but that's the point as the author has stated that his belief is during a ZA/TEOTWAWKI situation anyone who hasn't been preparing will be pretty dead pretty quick.

My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland and Married With Zombies by Jesse Petersen are both great for a zombie chuckle. Definitely agree that the Zombie Fallout series by Mark Tufo has a good bit of quirky humour.

I am going to blatantly plug Bite No.1: The Old Man at the End of the World - erm... my zombie offering. Let me know what you think - you've got nothing to lose ;) it's free on Amazon while Bite No.2 gets itself in order:

https://www.amazon.com/Bite-No-1-zombie ... B06WVDWDH6 OR https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bite-No-1-zomb ... bc?ie=UTF8

'Shaun of the Dead' Fans Take Note!

Gerald Stockwell-Poulter couldn’t help but feel it was extraordinary just how quickly his life had changed. One moment he was earthing up leeks in the West Sussex sunshine and the next he was rooted to the spot as Rodney Timmins from the end allotment ambled towards him, arms outstretched, blood pouring from a hole in his neck and a look in his eye which suggested that he was less after help and more after a helping of Gerald.

Now, as Gerald’s life takes a quick turn for the worse, he must do things he has never done before. After 87 largely well-behaved years as a model citizen, less than four hours into the ‘zompocalypse’ and he has already killed a neighbour, rescued a moody millennial drug dealer and forged an unlikely allegiance with a giant ginger Scotsman. And it isn’t even tea time.

Join Gerald as he and his newfound allies navigate the post-apocalyptic English countryside in their hilarious bid to stay off the menu.

I love that series there is also a 5th "black tide rising" book now and 2 more on the way although book 5 is an anthology colab with Gary Poole that is multiple short stories of the fall from people on the land bugging out or in. Book 6 "more than his salt" is said to be the story of Steve brother at that bank from the point we stopped getting info about him while book 7 is going to be another anthology called "voices of the fall". but ya these are some great reads and have a great comical feel to them as well if Faith was a real girl i would be in love soon as she turned 18 lmao.

This would have been my suggestion too.
I'm almost done with book 5...
