Zombie survival guide is a unique book its not the type of comedey you would find that amazing funny punch line that leaves your stomach churning its more of a serious comedey as if a we were in a zombie apocalepse a slow but very amuzing book 5 Stars
The fact that this book is sold in the humor section of most bookstores is probably the funniest aspect of this book. Granted, it's a book about surviving a zombie onslaught, and lets you know every way to become prepared, depending on whether you're going to sit it out, flee, or even go out hunting for the undead. Taken seriously, it's more a guide for survival, and could be applied to surviving an overthrowing of a current government. It would help if the overthrowers were also the shambling hordes of the undead. Taken as it was probably meant to be read, there lies the humor. One is to not seriously believe that zombies have infiltrated our society throughout the ages, and that it is only a matter of time before they rise up and spread their plague like manifest destiny. Taken that way, yes, it's a funny book. But it's still enjoyable any way you take it. Filled with practical advice akin to a "wost case scenario" book, especially advice you probably should never have to apply, this is more a book on survival tactics than any other book, but would probably be laughed right out of the survival section of your bookstore, as it's subject matter deals with something as absurd as zombies. Sure to please any reader dying to survive the zombie holocaust, or those who are simply fans of undead literature.
For the paranoid imbeciles like me who need this book to prepare for the coming zombie invasion, The Zombie Survival Guide is a dream come true. Although it's more fit for an American environment, it still has a lot of practical steps to prepare for the worst case scenarios and can easily be translated to use for other less likely ventures, such as foreign invasion or nuclear war.I absolutely love this book, mostly because it's written so tongue in cheek, yet contains brilliant research with many practical uses. I love Max Brooks's work, and reading this in conjunction with World War Z is a very good idea. One of my favorite books of all time.
rather informative i must say! HAHAHA
