Publisher's Summary

Three years have passed since the Jamaicans caused the apocalypse, and things in post-Armageddon Chicago have settled into a new kind of normal. Unfortunately, that "normal" includes collapsing skyscrapers, bands of bloodthirsty maniacs, and a dwindling cache of survival supplies. After watching his family, friends, and most of the non-sadistic elements of society crumble around him, Patrick decides it's time to cross one last item off his bucket list. He's going to Disney World.

This hilarious, heartfelt, gut-wrenching odyssey through post-apocalyptic America is a pilgrimage peppered with peril, as fellow survivors Patrick and Ben encounter a slew of odd characters, from zombie politicians and deranged survivalists to a milky-eyed oracle who doesn't have a lot of good news. Plus, it looks like Patrick may be hiding the real reason for their mission to the Magic Kingdom.

Fans of John Dies in the End, Zombieland

The Jamaicans have caused the world and one of the two heroes of this story, Patrick has decided that he was wanted to make that trip he had always planned to Disney World from Chicago and take his trusty sidekick Ben along for the journey.

Something that isn't mentioned anywhere in the book, everybody has their own flavor of craziness. The book is a travel journal funny, sad and full of dark humor interspaced with pop culture references in brought about in ways that are unexpected. Barry Bonds makes a great cameo which I totally agree with.

Kinship

Apocalypticon was a surreal vacation to Disney World. What else are you going to do after the apocalypse? The banter between Ben and Patrick is good for a laugh and you never knew where the author was going to take a pit stop at next and what will be there when he does. This is a good read if you're looking for something not too serious, decent story development, and plenty of pop culture references. By the end of the trip I wasn't ready to leave. I thought the narrator did a great job with differentiating the Protagonists voices.

Not what you think it is

The reason I gave this book one star, is because I thought it was about the apocalypse. It is not, it is a comedy and it is damn funny. If you want to readA funny book, you'll like this.
