This book has a great pace and really kept me interested. Ever see an avalanche? That's how fast it is. I also found that this book has lots of good tips on how to restart civilization. The characters are quirky and multidimensional. I highly recommend it to all horror fans.

Really enjoyed the different (Non-American)take on a Zombie Apocalypse. I.e. no real access to guns, etc. Also enjoyed it from the, essentially, average Joe Couch Potato view. Have really come to appreciate the Zombie stories, including this one, where the characters react to a fictional yet "oh S***" now it's actually happening scenario. As opposed to the "we've never seen this before, even in movies" scenario's.

This was a good book. I would have rated 3 1/2 stars if the option was available, but rounded down as opposed to up in the interest of being realistic. I do eagerly await the sequel though, without a doubt.

I found this book quite by accident. I was looking for a book to read on the beach and as a Z end of world fan, I lucked out. So here is the scoop.....

This was written by a Brit, and I am American so I was concerned the humor would escape me. I was wrong along with any other preconceived notions I may have had.

Some have reviewed this as a Shaun of the Dead book but I never saw that movie. I found this to be an endearing read which I didnt want to put down. Think gorgeous tropical waters and island pleasures around me and I am engrossed to the point of ignoring my vacation.

It was funny yet complete zombie mayhem. I enjoyed the main charectors and their actions. The price is well worth it and a decent plot in a genre done to death (again no pun intended.)

There are some plot gaps, the usual insane actions tha most reasonable people would scoff at, the traditional-unbelievable reunions, and the like.

This isnt a down and dirty zombie DARK story though it has dark spots. Rather it is a medium grit, amusing zombie tale with laughs, gore, and moderate suspense with a warmer than usual ending BUT the door is open for other directions in the forth coming sequel.

BOTTOM LINE: enjoyable without being terribly sad, interesting yet humor laced at times (Britsh humor) worth the read time/$, and plenty of suspense. I'd suggest reading without lofty hopes for a World War Z type of amazing zombie lit and you will be pleased. Hope you enjoy!

This read like someone's daydream. It was ok but really SPOILER ALERT - all the main character's family and friends (bar one sacrificial lamb) survive?

"Breaking News: An Autozombiography" by N.J. Hallard is the first book I bought for my Kindle, and I think I made a good choice.

The story follows a group of survivors during the zombie apocalypse as they try to rebuild. Things are different, lots of technology is lost, so their lives are lived in a simpler way. Well, except for the zombies coming for them!

One of my favorite aspects of this book is that the author has clearly thought out his survival techniques. He describes in detail how shelters were made, how weapons were made and basically the little details needed to survive. They start simply, with tents and simple shelters, eventually building full on solid structures, and developing a (very necessary) system to weed out potentially infected individuals trying to join the encampment.

The only thing I wish this book had was more of the author's illustrations. I loved them, and wish there were just more of them

A nice piece of zombie reading. As an American reader, I found the English angle interesting. I look forward to the continuation.

I'm not a huge fan of zombie stories after my husband has bored me witless with Shaun of the Dead quotes....."you've got red on you", "gaaaay" etc (you get the idea) however this book was really entertaining and kept me drawn into the story turning the page to see what was happening next. I warmed to Al and really felt I knew all the characters. The whole spreading zombie mania is a worrying and not so unrealistic threat and this book whilst written in a quirky and entertaining way was definite food for thought. I can't remember the last time I read a whole book so the author must have got something right! I loved recognising some of the places I have grown up near although I'm not so sure the A27 Southwick tunnel will ever quite be the same again. Especially if theres a traffic jam! ;-)

A zombie romp set in the UK!

Any fans of the zombie genre will appreciate this fast paced survivalist tale set on the Sussex downs, straight into the action, this novel draws you in and establishes believable characters as they fight, survive and rebuild.
In the tradition of classic gloomy British sci-fi, this tale evokes the gritty realism of Terry Nations original Survivors whilst adhering to the Zombie rulebook as established by George A Romero.

A worthy purchase!!!
