What the Critics Say

"One would expect the son of Mel Brooks to have a genetic predisposition to humor, and indeed, he does, and he exhibits it relentlessly here." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Like listening to a catalog"

    I should have done a little more research into this before I purchased it as an audio book.

    Don't waste you time.

    I expected something humorous like the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy where the "Guide" is incorporated into a story or narrative. It isn't.

    The poor narrator does a valiant job at reading lists and dry text. But this is in no way entertaining our even interesting in audio form.

    Perhaps in print form the book is more engaging. But in audio form it's as interesting as listening to someone read washing instructions.

    "mix of fact and fiction"

    easy to get into with a mix of truths and stories, most weapon descriptions are fairly accurate as is the siege survival and stationary survival. on the run is plausible while the sea survival is iffy . overall a good listen, needs better tactics but very good nonetheless

    "Weirdly fantastic!"

    It's kinda weird reading such an elaborate description of a fictional creature and how to fight it. Max Brooks hits it out of the park.

    "A wonderful Read"
    What did you love best about The Zombie Survival Guide?

    All the Historical research that went into making this book.And the well thought-out platforme.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It wasn't that kind of a book.


    What does Marc Cashman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did an excellent job.


    Any additional comments?

    If you believe in Zombies or not you should listen or read this book.It was well researched and presented in such a way that opens your eyes to it may not be as far fetched as you once thought.

    "Loved it :)"
    What made the experience of listening to The Zombie Survival Guide the most enjoyable?

    I love the seriousness with which Marc Cashman reads Max Brooks book. I don't think the experience would be the same, if the narrator did not read it with some seriousness. Seriously love it. So calm and evenly paced, but with a gravity that behooves the line of story.


    What about Marc Cashman’s performance did you like?

    The way he reads it lends itself to the fact that, when your reading it , you want to lose yourself in it. You want to believe that this is something we have to seriously be concerned about RIGHT NOW, and not in an abstract, sort of "haha, oh this author" sort of way.
    Marc Cashman reads it as though he were preparing a group of people for this eventuality. It works.


    Any additional comments?

    I originally got this to listen on the bus and train ( fantastic for it, makes trips go quickly) but then one night, I was working late, and plugged it in to the speaker system. It was an interesting experience where I would actually stop doing anything and just listen, like I was in a lecture hall, just taking it in. Awesome.
    Granted, it also made me mildly paranoid about that fact that my store would not be terribly defendable with its 180 degree giant picture windows. Hahaha.

    Great reading by Marc Cashman. I highly recommend it. :)

    "Great guide for a Zombie apocalypse"

    In case that you love Zombies and want to be completely prepared, this is your guide. This is your best shot at survival. Great narration and works great with 1.5x narration speed.
