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)

    "A Great book!"
    Would you listen to The Zombie Survival Guide again? Why?

    Yes. I love Zombie books and this one was one of my favorites. It reads like a survival manual and a history book all in one. It will make you believe in zombies.


    What other book might you compare The Zombie Survival Guide to and why?

    There is no other book like this one. It is a one of a kind.


    What about Marc Cashman’s performance did you like?

    Very good performance I would listen to one of his other books with no reservation.


    If you could rename The Zombie Survival Guide, what would you call it?

    It is very well named.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. A must listen for zombie lovers.

    "Very Very dissapointed"

    Was expecting a humorous guide to zombie apocalypses, but what I got was a mixture of conspiracy book (zombies are all around us) and a thing done with a mouth between a guys legs to the American military. He also contradicts himself repeatedly with things like zombies will pile over fences but not over a broken staircase. Also gives terrible advise, no one should actually prepare like it says in this book because if you have that much weaponry in your apartment that you rent because this book tells you apartments are better then houses, nothing good will come of it. Also only applicable to Americans living in big cities.

    I prefer intelligent, complex stories with deeply developed characters. I'm not a fan of most popular novels; my taste is more eccentric.

    "Interesting but not Captivating...."

    This book does read like a non-fiction survival guide with lists of information that sometimes droned on for me. It tended to be a little dry. I enjoyed it, but zoned out for portions of the book. Parts that I found the most interesting involved descriptions of the safest buildings to hole up in during a zombie siege. I do find myself looking at buildings and comparing their safety value now. I also liked the descriptions of "real" zombie attacks throughout history. I am glad I listened and I know that every time I watch a zombie movie now, I will be thinking things like, "That chainsaw is not a very practical weapon, considering its weight...."

    "Good book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Zombie Survival Guide the most enjoyable?

    The detail put into pretty much everything, survivaltech, gear, backstory, etc.


    What other book might you compare The Zombie Survival Guide to and why?

    World war z, another book by max brooks


    Any additional comments?

    Some contradictions in the book, ex, a zombie cant climb a ladder but an anchorchain.. And in one chapter animals have no problem eating dead zombies as in all the other chapters they avoid necrotic flesh.. But, small things in the whole!

    This book is an excellent listen.

    The reader is great, but I wish it would hav been read by max brooks instead, he was good in WWZ

    "Funny In Concept - Boring In Reality"

    The idea is somewhat funny. But in reality the detailed descriptions of how to evade/survive a zombie conflict is like listening to...well...a guide. I also had issues with some of the writers logic. Zombies can't climb, but they can climb hand over hand up an anchor line...

    "This is a real snoozer, even if you like zombies."

    World War Z was so good that I went ahead and bought this even though the reviews were iffy. I can't even finish it because it is so boring. It is like listening to someone read a dictionary. Maybe this is interesting reading in book form, but it is a stinker of an audiobook.

    "Solid"

    Nothing to write home about the narrator does a decent job but seeing as this is quite literally a survival guide there isn't much to work with or to challenge the narrator. An entertaining and surprisingly in depth survey of how to survive before during and after a zombie apocalypse, if you're a horror fan there's a lot to like here but be aware that it's somewhat dry material.

    "Refuge for People Tired of Teenage Vampires"

    There need to be many, many more books like this one. I am so happy that the Zombie genre has belatedly started gaining on the teen vampire genre. My wife watched Buffy, reads Twilight and enjoys True Blood. Vampires are complicated, emotional and there is all that sex and teenaged angst mixed in.

    Zombies are simple; they like brains. They want to eat yours. There is no Edward, no Sookie no Angel, just brains. If you like apocalyptic fiction, this is a great use of an Audible Credit.
