Tom has a zombie goldfish named Frankie.
Tom’s evil big brother basically murders a goldfish as a science experiment.
Frankie can hypnotize people and make them do what he wants.
Frankie tries to kill Tom’s brother, Mark.
Mark wants to get rid of Frankie (forever!).
Who do you think wins in the battle between Frankie and Mark?
I like that Frankie has hypnotic powers because he can hypnotize people into doing unusual things, such as riding a bicycle with a monkey on their heads. Another reason I like this book is that Tom has an evil scientist for an older brother. Not everyone has an evil scientist older brother, and I think it’d be cool to figure out how to avoid becoming his next science experiment. The thing I like the most is that this book is unique. I have never read or even seen another book about a zombie goldfish that hypnotizes people. This makes this book special. It was a lot of fun reading it – and I enjoyed the story so much that I finished reading it in a couple of days.
One part I didn’t like was the fact that Sanj is a hacker. I did not like this because I think BBEDLAM would have had better use of an evil magician. He could just do a magic trick that makes the zombie-goldfish stare appear on TV and who know what might happen?
I would recommend this book to all people who like zombies, hypnotism, and evil scientist older brothers. I think people who like book with pictures (but not necessarily picture books) and who have curious personalities might enjoy reading My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish. I wonder what will happen in the SeaQuel and in the rest of the series … It’s up to SIX books now!
