Hungry Business – Maria Deblassie

I received a gifted copy of ‘Hungry Business’ by Maria DeBlassie from Henry Roi PR. I like reading short stories, but I can find them quite hard to review as I don’t want to give too much away.

I usually try to summarise a book’s description in my own words, but this description from Goodreads just has the story perfect. Please see below:

‘Looking for love can be deadly… 

You know how it goes.  You go out, hoping to meet someone.  You wade through your fair share of brainless automatons, lifeless bodies, and ravenous undead good at passing as human.   

The more you go out, the less hope you feel and the colder your body gets.  But you keep at it.  All you need is one beating heart to match your own before yours stops pumping altogether.  How hard can it be to find one living, breathing human in a city full of bodies?  

Dating.  

It’s hungry business.’ 

My Review:

This story is set in a world where there are zombies roaming the world but are still part of society.

I loved reading this and it made me feel like I must have quite a dark sense of humour. I was laughing at some of the dates the narrator was going through and could relate to a few of them from personal experiences, although obviously not in a world with Zombies.

The whole story was amazing, and it just felt like there was a lot more meaning behind the words, than the literal spoken words.

I would love to read more short stories like this and will be looking at more from this author too in the future.

Overall, a dark but I would say humorous horror short story, that may make you think twice about dating.

My Rating:
