"Funny, smart and damned gruesome. Way too much fun." – David Moody, author of Hater
"A fun pastiche of B-movie zombie fantasy and interactive horror novel . . . A boy’s own adventure that breathes a little well-deserved juvenile humor into the apocalypse." -- Kirkus
"Brallier's book may just be the best thing to happen to literary zombies since Max Brooks." -- Jacksonville Florida Times Union

I opened it up and starting reading/adventuring and the next thing I knew- 2 hours had gone by without a notice.
Good word art.visualization.
Its not your G rated, everyone going to make it Disney book. It real life, dilema with some tongue in cheek play. Even some choices if you went weasle route, the Author cold smacks you for being a douche!
Great fun! Even when you think you goign to make it, you might not!
It has all sorts of things:Bike gangs, art museums, love of your life, striper samurai (yes I said samurai stripper!), school kid dilemas, police swat, military, marine sniper and huge a$$ rifle!
Looking forward to reading with the team mates and making it a drinking game. Its that fun!
If you like Zombie books or fun this is a book to get!
My only 2 regrets are:
1) should had ordered a NEW copy (the used is fine but after reading it and luvin it, going to get another NEW copy for sure)
2) Should have bought this a long time ago, it's that good abook!
What impressed me: More often than not, the situations in this book felt realistic. Nothing was innovative, with most decisions being those zombie fans have already seen numerous times in movies. But that was part of the fun, getting to make the choices you've seen before for yourself, instead of just thinking the movie characters were some sort of idiots.
What disappointed me: The short answer is no. You cannot survive the zombie apocalypse. I reread this book, choosing different paths at least eight times and always, always, died one way or another - some more grisly than others. Maybe that's the point of the book, that no one can survive, but that doesn't make it very fun.
Recommended: Yes. While the constant deaths were annoying, this is definitely a book zombie fans are going to want to experience for themselves.

Aside from that, lots of fun and very immersive.
Do yourself a favour and read those instead, or play pretty much anything made by Inkle (Around the World in 80 Days, Sorcery!) on your tablet/phone/computer.
My brother is Autistic, so when I'm buying him any books/comics, I have very strict guidelines: "have to be zombies or superheroes, but no 'lame' ones. And if you can get choose your own adventures, then that'd beat anything!"
So, I had spent literally days searching Amazon and managed to find this little gem of a book that my twenty-one year old brother has never put down once since getting it!
He loves this book and yes, it is adult with mentions of drugs and-I think-sexual scenes, but to be fair, zombie books and shows are adult anyway.
Now I'm dreading topping this present, but I'd recommend the book for anyone who loved Goosebumps choose your own, as kids, and want a more adult version.
