Book of the Dead

July 18, 2007

I recently finished reading “The Zombie Survival Guide” by Max Brooks. It was written as a satire for fans of zombies as well as those interested in survival guides (awesome show), regarding the zombie attack that we all know is coming. The author does a good job of not breaking from the serious tone, which makes the guide that much more enjoyable. It actually had me thinking…”I’ll have to remember that during the outbreak”. The end of the book even has “actual recorded zombie attacks”…which adds a whole new level of entertainment. All in all a fun casual read.

I will warn you, that I had several people look at me strange when they saw the title of the book I was reading. I wonder if those same people will ask for my help while the undead eat their loved ones? Next up…How To Survive a Robot Uprising.

    I just did the wordpress tag surf and found your post. The funny thing is that someone was telling me about this book just yesterday. I’m not a believer in fate, but somehow I think I should put this on my TBR list.

    Thanks for the chuckle.

    It does kinda sound meant to be. Of course, you can’t go wrong with tag-surfing the word “zombies”.

    Also check out Brook’s “fictional” zombie book World War Z. Tons o’ zombie fun.
