When I read GUGGA by Jonathan Lambert I laughed, pondered, snickered, and was thoroughly amused. All of that experienced in a short story? Yes, so clearly I have to recommend it.
I’ve never reviewed a short story before and the thought of doing so put me at an impasse. How can you talk about the plot without giving something away? How can you discuss the development of a character, a theme?
Well, you can, but just not in detail. Here is what I’ve come up with.
GUGGA is a satirical, witty, and well written story following a shambling zombie who happens to have a quite a bit of a history from when he was living. It is a tale of romance, tragedy, and hope as the main zombie, Gugga, meets another zombie who changes everything.
The story is self-published (all the more reason to buy it at only .99 cents) but the writing is solid and it is obvious the author took great consideration in developing its pacing, little humorous quips, and overall structure. Highly recommended for a fun, satisfying read.
