For a zombie novel, this isn't as gruesome as you'd expect. Yes, it has sections that are a bit cringe-worthy, but nothing major. This is more a story of love; a zombie's love for a human, and how he must rise above his natural urges to kill, if he wants to save the woman he has fallen for.
It is a sweet and entertaining book, although a little bit trippy at times as the zombies point of view changes from his own to those of his victims. I particularly enjoyed the way the book ended as I wasn't sure where it was heading. I give it three stars.
