A Caribbean zombie--smart, gentlemanly, financially independent, and a top executive at an important pharmaceutical company--becomes obsessed with finding the formula that would reverse his condition and allow him to become "a real person." In the process, three of his closest collaborators (cerebral and calculating Isadore, wide-eyed and sentimental Mathilde, and rambunctious Patricia), guide the reluctant and baffled scientist through the unpredictable intersections of love, passion, empathy, and humanity. But the playful maze of jealousy and amorous intrigue that a living being would find easy to negotiate represents an insurmountable tangle of dangerous ambiguities for our "undead" protagonist.

A surprising read that is both philosophical and funny, and kept me reevaluating the plot and characters all the way through. The secondary and tertiary characters are pretty flat, and the main female characters almost exclusively exist to pursue the male protagonist, which is unfortunate, but it was still an enjoyable and thought-provoking book.
