    Statistics reveal that during a zombie outbreak, most individuals will have to destroy their undead opponent without the aid of a firearm. To prepare you for the inevitability of hand-to-hand combat with the living dead, The Zombie Combat Manual demonstrates how anyone, from the seasoned fighter to the untrained citizen, can become an effective warrior against the undead.

    Story

    I was in a "zombie apocalypse" mood and reading and listening to a lot of books in this vein, and made this one of my selections. This one just did not match many other zombie books, in overall terms of story. It was disappointing to have spent time and credit on this selection. ZCM is supposed to be a manual with helpful information if you find yourself in the dreaded zombie apocalypse with no plan (as if!) but all the tips and info is pretty basic anatomy and science stuff that most zombie fans will already know, and there is no fun or ingenious way the author adds these to the book. Just simplicity, which is a drag in a book about zombies. There are no memorable characters that you can't wait to see what happens next with! The narrator also oddly pronounces a few words which really, really grated on my nerves. I wasn't sure if this was the author's take on the word in this alternate zombie world or just a narrator who is from Canada, but if that was the case it was super cheesy. Overall the book just felt a little too contrived. Like a poor man's Zombie Survival Guide / World War Z ripoff. I found that although I finished listening to this book, I completely checked out and didn't pay attention to the last third of it.
