Publisher's Summary

Mo Collins is surviving the zombie apocalypse, but it hasn’t been easy. So far he has gathered himself a group of misfits, and one monkey, to help carve out an island paradise in the middle of a world turned blue and ravenous by an unknown plague. 

Mo’s home, the Viva Ancora, a replica pirate ship, is filling up with a list of characters that would make George Romero proud. Along with the guidance of Smokes, his personal Oracle and direct link to what seems to be a scripted reality, he has saved his parents, broken his perfect brother and future sister-in-law out of prison, fought off a crazed military wannabe dictator and survived a plane crash. All in the same day! 

So now that things seem under control on Guntersville Island you would think maybe life could begin to take on some sense of normalcy and he could settle down with his girl and live out his life on this island oasis. Guess again. Life just isn’t meant to be easy when you seem to be the hero of a predestined movie script. 

So hang on! The ride is about to get wilder and travel into uncharted territory. Next plot point of this movie: A cure? (Saw that one coming didn’t you?) New faces? New adventures? New villains? Does it ever end? Mo the reluctant hero can’t help being just that, The Hero. 

So here we are again on that same Alabama lake, where the fish bite, the zombies bite...and sometimes life bites. 

Welcome ashore, friend, to Zombie Oasis.

Zombie Oasis

This is a building book, it builds the characters, adds some new ones, builds some of the story parts the writer hasn't been able to tell you before, so it might not be like the other books but still very important and yes it still has some very funny parts. One of the new characters you will meet is Mo's cousin Benji, a Naval flight officer (NFO), and his crew who have been out looking for survivors across the southeastern US. But now that the crew of the Viva Ancora are getting ready to go down river to look for this doctor that is said to have a cure for the peevies, Benji and his eye in the sky will be more helpful than ever. This was another great book/audio by Bonds who can turn the littlest thing into big bad Mo killing, peevie pooping thing, that will have you laughing so hard that you won't be able to go to sleep, so best not to read these books at night. If you have the audio than its even better because you can hear Mo complain about it all in a Mo voice that narrator S W Salzman does so well along with all the other characters. It is so worth it! Bond and Salzman are a awesome team and I hope they are together for many many more.

Zombie Oasis

If you had told me a year ago that I would be listening to a book full of blue peevies/bluenatics (blue zombies), crude and politically incorrect dialogue, and references to nerdy pop culture, I would have laughed. Instead, I am laughing myself silly listening to another great addition to this great series! Javan Bonds has taken zombies to another level in his "Still Alive" series. This is definitely a NSFW (not safe for work) book. If you try to listen in the company of others, be prepared have your sanity questioned. There are plenty of LOL moments, but there are also some poignant parts as protagonists discover the fate of loved ones. I love all of the references to comic book characters, horror and sci-fi movies and TV shows. The characters are great and I can really relate to most of them. Be warned: if you are easily offended by cursing, blue peevie poop, political incorrectness or graphic violence involving numerous body parts, don't try these books. But, if you love the zombie genre and you are looking for a fresh take, give it a try. Mr. Salzman's narration continues to define Mr. Bonds' characters. When I read the "real" version of these books, I hear his voices in my head. His characterization of Mo, Smokes, and friends is amazing and really adds a lot to the enjoyment of these books. I really can't imagine anybody else narrating these books. I just hope that Mr. Bonds has many more books waiting in his amazing imagination because anytime that I want LOL entertainment along with a great Zompoc story, I know that this series will be just the right one to grab! I was given the chance to listen to the audiobook version of this book by the author/narrator and chose to review it.

Still Alive book 4

Another awesome book in the Still Alive series. Javan Bonds is too funny. The naked blue zombies that poop everywhere are great. It is a crazy spin on zombies and a nice change from your everyday run of the mill zombies. I absolutely love the Oracle (Smokes) and how he foresees things. Brad and his monkey are my favorite characters. Elmo is a great "hero" that is funny with his sarcastic attitude. And the pirate ship is an awesome setting heck it makes me want one if an apocalypse happens. If your looking for a gory yet funny book I highly recommend this series. Also Salzman is great at the voices. He has a strong clear voice that is easy on the ears. So can't wait to get to book 5.

Another fun episode.

Like the previous books in the series, Zombie Oasis had me smiling and even laughing out loud several times while listening. Horror comedy is rare, well done horror comedy is even rarer. I've enjoyed the over the top nature of this series from the start. From the meta almost 4th wall breaking nature of the how the story is told, to the crazy way most of the characters are hyper stereotype caricatures of character archetypes, to the great voices SW Salzman gives to this crazy cast. All that being said, this volume is a little less focused than previous volumes. The hero of the entire series Mo Collins doesn't even come into the play until about halfway into the book, before that we are getting caught up on some older characters as well as getting introduced to some new ones. Man do some of these people have the worst luck! Don't get me wrong, their antics are quite entertaining, but the overall plot doesn't really get advanced all that much for that first half and while this volume is definitely worth listening to, it feels more like a setup for the adventure I am sure is coming next. I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Zombie Oasis!!! These just keep getting better!!!!

Javan Bonds keeps getting better and better! This has got to be one of my favorites so far. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about the journal parts from other people, but it actually makes it more interesting. The narration by S.W. Salzman makes these characters pop off the page! If you delicate sensibilities, these books are not for you. If you can handle some gross humor and a few off color jokes, you have to check these books out!

Kept me cracking up

Nothing like a zombie series to get the blood flowing. If you like your zombies naked, blue and full of shit with humor then this is the series for you. They say laughter is the best medicine and this series hits both humor and action with all cylinders. This is another hit from the master of the blue zombies. The conversations between Mo and Smokes had me laughing so hard my fiance kept looking at me funny. This is definitely worth the listen and the narrator is spot on.

Fun and disturbing

I love this fresh face on traditional zom-poc stories. It's like the author asked himself how to make a horror story funny. Well, obviously, the answer is to write it as if the protagonists are rednecks with a pirate ship, add dick and poop jokes, and stir all those ingredients into a screenplay where the main characters know its a script. Well done on adding to the story, great narration, and great job keeping a much loved genre from getting stale.

Amazing! Continues to be funny & entertaining!

I love this series. It’s actually my favorite zombie series ever. While book 4 didn’t give me as many laugh out loud moments as some of the other books It still had quite a few. I’m excited to see where Mo and crew end up. Can’t believe they are running after a football trophy for his brother. Hopefully they do find the Dr’s with a cure along the way. It is their main goal.Smokes better be looking out for everyone! If you need a laugh, a good zombie series and don’t get disgusted by talk of poop you should read this series! Javan never fails to deliver! Salzman does an amazing job of narrating and he has made it to #3 on my all time favorite narrators list. Hurry up and release the audio version of book 5..... & 6..... & 7!

Fun, Entertaining & Addictive

First, make sure you're not eating while listening to this series because these blue nudists' zombies are just nasty. Second, just when you think you've read and heard it all in the zompoc genre, Javan Bonds throws in a new and brilliant twist. Third, I never thought killing off characters can be funny. Seriously, Bonds is incredibly creative and hilarious, with phenomenal imagination that captivating his readers/listeners. The action and gore ratchet up in the Zombie Oasis, the fourth edition of the Still Alive series. The point-of-views shift between a few of the main protagonists, allowing the readers/listeners to connect with the characters fully. Mo is still the hero, and he continues to make us laugh with his politically-incorrect thought and dialogue. A stellar performance by S.W. Salzman, his portrayal of the characters and their colourful personalities, was flawless. Kudos to both author and narrator!

Why oh why Vinegar tho?!?

This is the fourth book in the Still Alive series and there seems to be more story than dialect, but I’m not complaining. We are introduced to new characters, some short lived and rightfully so! You must enjoy dark humor and gore to be able to stomach some of the scenes in this book, if you’re uptight and squeamish…this book isn’t for you. To me in a genre where it’s all been written before, you need to think outside the box and give your audience something different, and Javan is doing just that. Salzman is THE man and keeps giving me what I want with his narration.

Entertaining!

As usual.. this book did not disappoint! The characters were entertaining and kept me totally engrossed and waiting expectantly to see what other hilarious thing was going to happen or be said. The narrator did a great job bringing the characters to life and making it even more entertaining. If you have listened to the other book's then you know it's a great series. This is a great addition to thrre series.

A zompoc like no other

If you are looking for a zombie book full of dark (black) humour, naked blue zombies who attack en masse, then this is the book for you. Some terrific laugh out loud moments - action from the first minute to the last and characters you just can't help liking Highly recommend (but not for the faint hearted...LOL)
