I Am Scrooge Summary

I Am Scrooge: A Zombie Story for Christmas by Adam Roberts

Marley was dead. Again. The legendary Ebenezeer Scrooge sits in his house counting money. The boards that he has nailed up over the doors and the windows shudder and shake under the blows from the endless zombie hordes that crowd the streets hungering for his flesh and his miserly braaaaiiiiiinns! Just how did the happiest day of the year slip into a welter of blood, innards and shambling, ravenous undead on the snowy streets of old London town? Will the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future be able to stop the world from drowning under a top-hatted and crinolined zombie horde? Was Tiny Tim's illness something infinitely more sinister than mere rickets and consumption? Can Scrooge be persuaded to go back to his evil ways, travel back to Christmas past and destroy the brain stem of the tiny, irritatingly cheery Patient Zero? It's the Dickensian Zombie Apocalypse - God Bless us, one and all!

I Am Scrooge Reviews

"Adam Roberts reworks a Christmas Carol into a zombie-slashing gore-fest. Lots of corny jokes and groanworthy one-liners, lots and lots of brain slurping zombies. Clever and daft in equal measure." DAILY MAIL "Imagine a historical Shaun of the Dead written with as many bad zombie puns as you can think of... Like Monty Python at its best though, I Am Scrooge doesn't talk down to its audience. Ranks alongside Blackadder's Christmas Carol as a great comic take on Dickens." TOTAL SCI FI "A Halloween treat and Christmas stocking present all rolled into one... 'I Am Scrooge' is nothing less than great fun from start to finish." -- Graeme Flory GRAEME'S FANTASY BOOK REVIEW "It is apparent that Adam Roberts had a tremendous amount of fun writing I am Scrooge. He plays with the language and name-drops throughout the novel. Scrooge is thrown up against a variety of zombies and never for a moment think that this novel is about character development, or a commentary on the political climes of the day or anything remotely high brow. This is guns blazing silliness to a high degree... but you'll enjoy yourself nonetheless." -- Liz De Jager SF REVU "It's humour is the main draw here, which never lets up. The pop culture references also come in thick and fast too. The prose is witty and the pacing fast and flowing. If you want a nice, fun read you can't go wrong with this quirky little title that will leave you chomping at the bit." -- Amy Squibb SCI FI NOW
