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)

    "loved it"

    Very well though out and put together in a fun way. Got a little dry at times, but if you are a zombie story fan, it is a must.

    "A Decent Audio book"

    I love Max Brook and his work. That being said, the Zombie Guide while good just doesn't lend itself to audiobook form in my opinion. The material is stellar, the narration excellent but it just doesn't feel right. Buy World War Z, its one of the best audiobooks on Audible!

    "Zombie Fans should get this"

    max brooks is one of the best zombie explanitors (I think I just made up a word) That I have ever read from. He really goes in depth on this; although his impression of zombies are not the resident evil type monsters under bed looking zombies, nor are they the I am legend type. It brings me back to the dawn of the dead seres from the 70's; the slow moving zombies puts fear into anyone, and forces you to come up with a new strategy to survive.

    "It's no WWZ"
    Any additional comments?

    If I had read this prior to World War Z I would never have read WWZ. Sorry Marc Cashman, but in this one, you come off as barely more alive than the "zombies".

    Max Brooks... Dude what were you really going for here? As entertainment, this is abject failure. As informative guide disguised as zombie lit it's... not good. It would almost be better if it was all crap. Some of the tips are good, well thought out, probably well researched (e.g. .22LR is an excellent survival weapon - regardless of zombies). However other things were outright dangerous (even if zombies as described were real and the only threat) or contradictory (e.g. "Urban apartments are good places to survive" then later "Avoid urban areas". ) (More: "Zombies can't climb", "Zombies may climb your anchor chain/rope")

    I was very disappointed. WWZ=good, ZSG=not good.

    "Not audiobook material"

    The content of the book is good, though a bit dry in it's layout. The "idea" of a documentary-styled guide to a fictional situation is risky, and I say Brooks' book is a success. Cashman's delivery of the material is an utter failure. His voice woul be at home in a lecture hall filled with captive students. All the better if they are zombies. I'm going to chance World War Z, but only because Cashman's name isn't on the vocal roster.

    "Sometimes printed books should just stay printed."

    I'd read a bit of this book in paperback. Some Audio books should stay paperback, this is one of them. It's like listening to someone read a chemistry book to you.

    "Is this funny?"

    I got this because of a hillarious deadpan segment about WWIII: the Zombie war, on NPR. I was expecting to laugh, but maybe I just don't get it. Mostly it's just tedious boredom. If I remind myself how ridiculous the whole thing is I do chuckle a bit, but that's about it. I want my credit back.
