Seven of the best books with thinking zombies

At the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog Ceridwen Christensen tagged seven top books with thinking zombies. One title on the list:
Breathers: a Zombie’s Lament, by S.G. Browne

A rom-zom-com in the vein of Chuck Palahniuk, Breathers follows lovers Andy and Rita after they meet at an Undead Anonymous meeting. Breathers shun zombies, and have more or less stripped them of their civil rights, a reoccurring theme in novels of the thinking undead. When Andy and Rita are slipped human flesh by a zombie activist and begin to understand their own disenfranchisement, they are galvanized to take legal action on the part of their zombie brethren. I don’t mean to make this sound drearily political, because it’s much more quipping than monologuing. But then, both horror and comedy often belie more serious messages.

Breathers is among Kimberly Turner's ten top books every zombie fan must read.
