​Feel free to leave me a comment below and I'll try to get back to you soon.

    Hi there!
    We are a group of people who read this story for our reading circle. We really enjoyed the story. These were our favorite parts and the reasons why we enjoyed it:

    Esteban: I enjoyed the story because its like someone in a new place and he didn’t know what to do, but this story tells us how we can make friends and what to do in that situations. My favorite part was the end and the part of the sunrise bar because it was very interesting.

    Diego: I really enjoyed this book, because it’s completely different, nowadays when you hear the word “zombie”, you think of death and a posible war, but this book breaks the ice and tells us a complete different idea where zombies and humans live together with similar things like Jobs. My favorite part was the creation of the final job of Brian “Brian’s Brains”, it was a change that I didn’t expect, but I’m happy for Brian, because now he doesn’t need to hide his real appereance.
    I would like a second part where you tell us more about the new shop and how Brian’s life has changed.

    Edgar: I really enjoyed your story because it has raelly beautiful moral and gets people to be themselves. My favourite part of your story was when you created new flavours for your resraurant and when you stopped hiding your appearance and started watching more undead people around.

    Jorge: I can’t believe you came up with such a plot, a working zombie! I was hoping Susie and Brian dated. :c

    Thank you so much for such a magnificent story!

    Hi Brian,
    I noticed a lot of paralel between zombies and queer people in general, is it intended ? It’s a great novel by the way I’m happy to have discovered it.

    • So glad you enjoyed the novel, Nathan, and thanks for getting in touch! In creating this piece, there was no direct intention to mirror any particular subsection of society. Though I’d say parallels naturally exist when talking about a minority that faces discrimination.

    A letter to Brian
    I really liked Brains Brains, I loved the creative aspect of the book. I loved the lesson on how unique everyone is.
    What made you come up with this story?
    Did you get ideas from other sources? Is this story meant to teach a lesson on different abilities like with developmental disabilities? How long did it take for you and your staff to complete the book?
    How many edits did you make?

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Thanks for your message Matthew.

      Hugh did all the writing and editing for the book. I’ll let him know you got in touch.

      All the best!


  • Emilie says:

    i really enjoyed the story i liked chapter 5 and what is gonna happen next from the story is there gonna be another chapter

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Ah, the performance review! Yes, that brings back memories …

      The book has 10 chapters in total, which are all available from this website. However, you’ll need to sign up for an account in order to see them all.

      Glad you’re enjoying the story!


  • Neima says:

    I really enjoyed the story. I liked chapter 9 and 10 the most because of Brian’s business strategy, team work and the way how people liked his business and ingredients in the beginning. Also i liked the way his plan became successful. It was fast growing.

    Is this the first story you wrote?
    Are there any other stories available from you? I’m interested.

    Thank you,

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Hi Neima, so pleased you like my story! Yes, chapter 9 and 10 are faves for me too – that’s when it all starts coming together.

      This is indeed my first story. I do hope to bring another instalment for you in order to let you know how things are going with Brian’s Brains since we left off. Times are tough right now, that’s for sure.

      But I hope I can bring out a sequel in the not-too-distant future.

    I really enjoyed your story.
    Now is 2021 and LGBTQ is a very big issue. After reading this story, I think today is the same situation as Brian’s world. There are many kinds of people in the world, so I should respect all of people.
    Thanks for you, I noticed it.
    Thank you.

      Hi Jojo, it’s great to hear from you! So pleased you enjoyed reading my story. We should indeed try to accept and get on with people whatever their backgrounds may be.

  • Ege says:

    Hi Brian! I’ve enjoyed to read your story and it’s really helped me to develop my English and adding new words to my vocabulary.

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      So glad you enjoyed the story and that it’s helped you develop your vocabulary, Ege! Reading is fantastic for this – keep it up! Brian

  • Meline says:

    My students and had great fun while reading yur stories! Thanks a lot for entertaining us! It was exciting to discuss your story and I`ve got a question: Where can we order a box of Brains with the flavor ” Cockroach Chicken?”

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Hi Meline, so glad you and your class have been discussing my story. We’re completely sold out of cockroach chicken, I’m afraid, but perhaps your class would be interested in our most recent recipe: ‘Tarantula Turkey’? Stay safe and keep reading!

  • José says:

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Hi Jose, thanks so much for your encouragement! I think your English must be pretty good as you managed to finish the book – a great achievement. Well done and keep reading!


    Hi Brian.
    I’ve just read your story, and I came to your website to ask you about your company’s job vacancies. Are you hiring? How can I apply for a position?
    I’d like to work with you.
    Your story is incredible and I loved reading every page of your book.

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Hi Thiago!

      Thanks for getting in contact.

      So glad you enjoyed the book and thank you for enquiring about our job vacancies.

      We are not actively seeking new recruits at this time, due to the unstable conditions during this time of global pandemic. However, we could well be in a position to raise the headcount next summer – when conditions will hopefully have improved. We have in mind a few roles that may open around that time if all goes well.

      Please note that while we operate an inclusive recruitment policy open to the undead and non-undead alike, it’s important that new recruits exhibit the values of Brian’s Brians and those who can demonstrate a strong commitment towards undead-friendly activities will have a stronger chance of being selected.

      As such, members from every background are encouraged to apply. However, certain roles may not be suitable for everyone. For example, candidates applying for roles in product development will be expected to demonstrate a strong ability to identify and differentiate flavours and blends favoured by a range of undead beings. (Those who can’t distinguish a cockroach chicken from a pistachio pig need not apply).

      Thanks again for contacting us, and watch this space for news on openings!

      Kind regards,


  • Okan says:

    Hi Brian, I have just read your story. It was very interesting and I enjoyed while reading. I hope, you write many stories about your life.

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Hi Okan, thanks for getting in touch! Oh, life has been very busy so I haven’t written anything for a while. But there are definitely more stories to tell and I’m looking forward to getting a chance to share them with you. All the best! Brian

  • Jiri says:

    Hi Brian. Nice story. It was fun to learn english with your story, thank you. 🙂 Jiri

    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Hi Jiri, thanks for getting in touch and sorry for the late response – I’ve been busy with the new company. I’m so pleased you found my story enjoyable! I hope to update you on how it’s going in the future. All the best, Brian

  • Petra says:

    Hi Brian, I really enjoyed your story. I kept my fingers cross for you when you had to go to your boss or when you had to hide your lunch or repair your makeup and some things made me laugh – e.g. when your friends said you found a hole at the market or when you came to the party and there a shirt, tie and trousers float in the air….it was very funny learning English for me!

    Thanks for that 🙂


    • Brian Barrymore says:

      Hi Petra, I’m so glad my story gave you enjoyment and a few laughs. It’s been a long journey, but I’ve certainly learned a great deal. Brian’s Brains is going from strength to strength and we’re focussing on improving our service and selection of dishes, including our newest dish – ‘catsick crab’. All the best. Brian
