I have Literate HouseWife to thank for the suggestion to listen to this to get the full range of talent that is “narrator Simon Vance”. And then I find out that Kailana read this book, too. The Guilded Earlobe says exactly what I would say, so I’ll let him :
A hilarious novel that probably would have worked even better if I was more of a Beatles fan. Simon Vance’s narration itself makes this title worth a listen.
I had wishlisted this at the Audible.com site and recently, it went on sale. Just in time for RIP VII.
So I purchased and started listening right away. I just had to find out if this Simon Vance dude was as good as everyone says!
He is. And oh, what a funny odd gross story this is.
In a quick nutshell? It’s an oral history of the Beatles as zombies. Actually, Ringo isn’t. Paul insisted that at least one band member have blood pumping through their veins. (It IS cool that Ringo is a ninja. Yoko is, too, in case you are curious but don’t think you’ll read/listen. Oh, and Mick Jagger is a Zombie Hunter.)
Recommended for any Beatles aficionado with a high gross-out tolerance and a wicked sense of humor.

No, you can’t interest me in a flaming pie, you sparkle-eyed wench.”
