Publisher's Summary

The truth is out there...and it will eat your face.

"Bigfoot is real." That's what primatologist Dr. Sarah Bishop's father told her before his academic disgrace and untimely death.

Now Sarah is eager to restore her father's good name. Survival show host Russ Cloud is just as eager to boost his plummeting ratings. They'll both have a shot at redemption when they find themselves hired by eccentric billionaire Cameron Carson. After a series of his publicity stunts end in spectacular failure, Carson has a plan to redeem his tarnished image: capture a live Sasquatch.

Sarah and Russ join an expedition with an eclectic crew: an Afrikaner safari hunter, a 'roided out former wrestling star, a Shoshone master tracker full of surprises, a heavily tattooed Russian warrior woman, a pair of wise-cracking nerds, and a cute gum-chewing intern with some hidden skills. Will they find Bigfoot?

There's something in the woods...but it's not what they're expecting.

Critic Reviews

"No one can shift from gore to guffaws like Nick Sullivan!" (Michael Reisig, author of the Road to Key West series)
"Zombie Bigfoot is one of those stories that will stick with me...I would put this up with the adventure greats Preston & Child and David Wood. The narration is really what tops everything off. Nick Sullivan is a veteran audiobook [narrator] with hundreds of titles to his name. And after a few minutes listening to him you quickly know why." (Brian Krespan, Brian's Book Blog)
"Great fun and highly recommended...wonderfully wacky characters." (Bill Pronzini, author of the Nameless Detective series)
"Zombie Bigfoot is a super fun book that moves at a pace that will leave you breathless. The story is everything that I loved about the creature features that I used to watch on the late night horror shows of my youth." (Horror Maiden)
"Sullivan was able to create his bigfoot characters and make them so remarkable and almost believable. For a zombie story, it was incredibly dynamic. Sullivan put a lot of thought into every twist and turn." (AudioBook Reviewer)

Awesome!

I selected this book because it sounded cool and a little cheesy. I love cheesy sometimes. This was not cheesy at all! It was awesome!

I love how the story is told from the perspective of the Bigfoot as well as the humans. Sullivan also incorporates Native American lore into this story as well which I think is great!

The characters in the story are very likable, especially the Bigfoot. (not zombie Bigfoot) The relationship Sullivan builds between the Bigfoot and Dr Bishop, then later his daughter, is very touching. Dr Bishop made quite an impact on the young Bigfoot and helped with communication between the two species by teaching it sign language.

This is NOT the typical zombie book. SPOILER ALERT! A group of geologists happen to come across a strange green meteorite that seems to be emitting a humming noise. After the meteorite changes them into zombies, they encounter a Bigfoot! The Bigfoot, only trying to protect his pack, rips the zombies to shreds, but is unfortunately bitten in the process. You know what happens next. ZOMBIE BIGFOOT!

I usually don't like books narrated by the author. Very few authors can pull it off. Turns out, Nick Sullivan was a narrator first and an author second. He's an excellent narrator!

I really hope he continues the Creature Quest Series! There is no cliffhanger at the end of this book, but it certainly leaves the possibility of a 2nd book! I'm certainly looking forward to it!

Incredibly entertaining

I am willing to bet that most people, after reading the title of this book, will have a certain pre-conceptualised notion of what this book will be about. I know that I did. That was a campy monster fueled undead romp through the woods. With everybody terrified and fleeing from undead bigfoots or is it bigfeet? (I looked it up, it is Bigfoot for singular and plural.)

Well, it was kind of like that, but so, so much more.

Zombie Bigfoot is told from two main storylines, err, perspectives. The humans and the Bigfoot. With more points of view within each.

Sullivan was able to create his bigfoot characters and make them so remarkable and almost believable. And definitely more likable than the humans.

Here is the long and short of it. Years ago a scientist found Skunk Apes in the wild, was able to make contact with them, gain their trust, and ultimately teach them how to communicate. Years later another expedition is sent to find the bigfeet, to prove their existence and other sinister plans. Then there is the alien meteorite that turns living things into zombie-like creatures. Because they can still think and have thoughts.

For a zombie story, it was incredibly dynamic. Sullivan put a lot of thought into every twist and turn of the story. Full of action, mystic, mythology, action, a little bit of love. Listeners will be completely swept away to the Florida swamps and by the end, they will believe that Sasquatches are real.

There was a nice no cliffhanger ending that started the ball rolling for another book, yet also would be a fine standalone story.

Unless you are new to my audiobook reviews, you know my general initial feeling towards author narrators. However, Nick Sullivan, being a narrator first and an author second, was able to pull it off very well. Because of his intimacy with the story, you could tell that he was emotionally tied to every nuance within.

Incredibly entertaining because of Sullivan's words, both written and spoken.

Are you saying they’re some sort of Zombie Bigfoot

"Wait… are you saying they’re some sort of Zombie Bigfoot?"

Zombie Bigfoot is one of those stories that will stick with me. The characters, both human, and bigfoot had so much depth that I wouldn't be surprised if there are more stories that revolve around them. The scenery and scene setting was perfect -- to the point where it felt like Sullivan has been writing adventure novels for years.

It was also one of those hard to pin down stories. I believe that the main genre was Adventure. It had Adventure undertones throughout (looking for a Bigfoot). I would put this up with the adventure greats Preston & Child and David Wood (Dane Maddock & Bones). It had all of the enjoyable elements that I love, but it also added in a ton more. Elements of horror and comedy were also throughout Zombie Bigfoot and done extremely well. One minute I was laughing and the next I was cringing in fear or horror.

The narration is really what tops everything off. Nick Sullivan is a veteran audiobook narrated with hundreds of titles to his name. And after a few minutes listening to him you quickly know why. The narration was perfect. You can definitely tell that Sullivan wrote this book with the intent of recording the audiobook. It was developed perfectly for audio, the scenes and jumps between characters weren't every 2 minutes and were well thought out and explained. Each character had the voice that the author wanted.

In all honesty, I had to take a day to gather my thoughts because I didn't want to write a review that felt like it was complete hyperbole. I was able to tame some of my thoughts down, but honestly, this was just such a great story that I hope that people pick it up based on my review.

My only warning to readers/listeners is that this book does get a little gory from time to time. When the said zombie bigfoot attacks it does NOT hold back. If you're extremely sensitive to overly descriptive death scenes, then you have been warned. But as I mentioned before, a lot of the time only a few paragraphs back I was laughing at different things going on, so the gore to no-gore value is still high.

The funny thing is that this book could have gone numerous different ways. Sullivan could have completely removed the "zombie" aspect of it and it still would have been enjoyable. Sure, it would have changed some of the later interactions between characters, but the story was so well written that it still would have been good.

To Nick: please keep writing. You have a gift -- actually two gifts: you can write a darn fine story that I think could compete with the greats in a few genres AND you can narrate the heck out of a story.

I received a free copy of this audiobook, it has not affected my review in any way.

Ridiculously enjoyable!!

"Zombie Bigfoot" serves its reader exactly what you would want from a book called "Zombie Bigfoot" - endlessly entertaining, Irresistibly funny, and unrelentingly chilling, all at the same time. For those interested in the exploration of multi-genre, two thumbs way up for this clever comedic horror story. With a very high quality recording (both technically, and in the crystal clear performance by author/narrator Nick Sullivan), you will enjoy the crap out of "Zombie Bigfoot."

I can't believe it.

I have no idea what gives here. A book with this title has no business being this good. It is a compelling and though provoking tale, somehow both introspective and fast-paced, which took me on a joyous and unexpected ride into the mind of a sasquatch living in a remote, misty forest. When the 'alive-dead-not-humans' come and disrupt the daily lives of the forest dwellers and nearby researchers, well, all I can say is, bravo: an ORIGINAL idea! I thought there was nothing new under the sun, but I was wrong.

This book is awesome. Seriously, forget the cheesy title and just buy it. And Mr. Author, please, let your agent name your next book. Just please do write a next one!

Wildly entertaining!

While at times the writing and narration were done in a tongue in cheek fashion I was wildly entertained and just had to keep listening. Kudos to Nick Sullivan on this production, I look forward to the next installment in the Creature Quest Series.

A surprisingly deep book about bigfoot zombies

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It is full of Humor, terror, bigfootses? bigfeet? and ofcourse zombies. What more could a person want?

What about Nick Sullivan’s performance did you like?

There is a reason that Nick Sullivan has narrated hundreds of books. I will let you guess what that is. Actually no I wont. It is because he does a great job! This being his own book made the reading even better.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The real surprise was the reading of the Journal. That part was especially well written.

Any additional comments?

I was given a free copy of this Audiobook in exchange for an honest review. That in no way alters my opinions.My really cool review with graphics and stuff is on my blog. thebloggoblin dot com But I really do highly recommend this one to any that like to laugh and/or zombies. That just made me think wouldent a giggling zombie be terrifying?

A fun tromp through the woods

What made the experience of listening to Zombie Bigfoot the most enjoyable?

Nick Sullivan's theatre background shone through via the multitudes of colorful characters from the youngest Bigfoot to the toothy millionaire. I imagined what it was like during the Golden Age of Radio, listening to a mystery serial, ears glued to the RCA Victor radio. This audio book was my companion during the morning and evening commute every work day and I found myself taking the scenic route home just to find out how the characters were going to get out of their latest bind.

What other book might you compare Zombie Bigfoot to and why?

This book reminded me of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. An exciting page turner with lots of gore I don't necessarily need to see on screen but in print, it's fun to read.

Which character – as performed by Nick Sullivan – was your favorite?

Bright Eyes was my favorite. Nick Sullivan made this Sasquatch so human and real, I really wished there was a Bright Eyes out there in the wilderness.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Plenty of chuckles abounded!

Any additional comments?

If you're looking for a fun, easy to read or listen thriller, this is it! Very much looking forward to the follow-up!

Not As Bad as The Title Implies...Really!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes and the friend would not have to be a zombie or bigfoot fan. It's not Shakespeare (its not supposed to be) but it will hold your attention, entertain and give you a chuckle or two. Frankly, I laughed out loud a couple of times. There are several nods to other books and action flicks but it is not a cheesy mess. I thought the human characters could have used some more development but overall it was a good book and not quite what I expected. I am so looking forward to the next creature quest tale. Oh, and if you're wondering about the narration, it was great.

give it a chance

Any additional comments?

i must have passed this book 5 times while searching for other monster books, and eventually i had to give it a change. <br/>its pretty good for a light read. i do wish it was slightly longer, not Stephen King longer but slightly, just to get to know the characters a bit more. i didn't feel much when they died, lived or succeeded. <br/>the title pretty much explains the story line, so dont get it expecting something informative or science based. it is a simple fun light read about an old legend. <br/>i cant wait for book 2. if anyone hears anything about a second book, please post it here<br/>thanks<br/>and thank you mr sullivan, i thoroughly enjoyed it
