I am importing some of the five star reviews, which people posted on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. I hope you find them useful for helping you see what some readers think of my book.
"This book is the funniest book I have read in a long time. It is one of those books that once you start reading the first few pages, you have to keep reading, a real page turner.Some people have criticised the book for the people mentioned in it, but then again if you have no sense of humour then this is not the book for you.I happen to love it and trying to read a bit to my husband took forever, between giggling and trying to read, in the end he read it himself and nearly fell off the seat laughing.The only real criticism I have of the book is it was too short. I just wanted to read more of it I enjoyed it so much.Please Christopher, write more, this is so good. I want to see and get more of your work. Thank you for taking the time to write this book and for publishing it I am amazed at the talent you have".
"The author brings smiles to the readers face of course with his talented but funny book. Not only is it filled with humor, giggles and smiles, it is well written and for that I must give this author a five star".

"There are some books which are just so funny that it is almost impossible to put them down. "The Zombie, the Cat and Barack Obama" by Christopher Antony Meade is one of that happy Breed. From the opening chapter, where the reader is introduced to the ravening, but musically talented, zombie Julian Faversham; to the finale and the encounter between the zombie and Barack Obama, the reader is taken on a surreal journey that takes ranges through Area 51 to the death of Adolf Hitler and a lot more besides. All these subjects are treated with an almost nihilistic irreverence, which gives a new and very funny twist to political satire. The fortunate reader might find this book to be one of the funniest he or she has ever read, but you can guarantee that the various politicians and public figures, mercilessly lampooned in its pages will find it less than amusing.
If you want to read a really good book, that will leave you laughing uncontrollably at the pretensions of those who set themselves up as our rulers, buy this one. If you are a politician or a public figure, take a "chill pill" before reading it. You will need to".
"This was an excellent comical book. At first I thought it was serious but then the twists and turns kept coming. I laughed so hard my jaws hurt after reading this book. An excellent way to get you out of boredom for sure".
"I read this book with one hand over my mouth so my laughter didn't wake the rest of the house. It is such a funny story that I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. The problem for the author as I see it is there are going to be a lot of people in high places who will read this and say "Oh my God, how did he find out?" I see an assassin's bullet with this author's name on it.
I can't recommend this treat highly enough".
"The tales are all 'tongue in cheek' and would be a great read for those who are looking for something fun, light and easy to read. The author has a great imagination and has managed to link each tale together quite brilliantly, making the book 'flow' from one story into the next quite smoothly. You'll meet several other characters within the tales, and find out what 'really happened' to Barack Obama.
My personal favorite was the first tale about the Zombie which, at times, had me laughing out loud; but having 'said' that, I thoroughly enjoyed the book as a whole. There are definitely more titters to be had, especially when you imagine what is being so well described. The book is short, and may only take a couple of days to get through, less if you 'speed read' like my husband, but I think the author got it spot on. It's certainly worth a read and I'd happily RECOMMEND THIS BOOK to anyone".
"Faversham; Stanislaus Gutterskunk; P. Lod.- Christopher's wacky selection of names along with use of his own, give an insight to the man's humour. A piano playing zombie, a needy member of Z.A. 3 little pigs in Atlantis. How can these all come together in a book with Royalty and the most powerful man in the world? I've no idea why it works but it does. As long as you have a sense of humour plus an imagination, this will keep you smiling and wanting to read it again. Great wackiness Christopher and stay away from the piano - thank you".
