Book Description

When civilisation finally collapsed and the undead grew weak enough for the survivors to catch their breath, they were left with one question... what to do with dear old England? On the south coast two zombie film fans are caught up in the summer madness of a real plague of the undead. They know how to deal with the situation and what to arm themselves with, but everyone else seems a little preoccupied. As mobile reception is lost, radio stations fall silent and passenger jets drop from the sky they seek shelter on top of an Iron Age hill fort, soon joined by friends and enemies alike. With 300 pages and 16 original illustrations and maps. WARNING: This book contains material unsuitable for minors, including coarse language; scenes of extreme violence and gore; instances of drug-taking and sex. You have been warned!

5.0 out of 5 stars An avalanche October 12, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read January 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read December 3, 2012

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars must read!! February 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reminds me of old British Sci-Fi Movies November 6, 2014
By Suzanne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had this on my wish list for a long time and finally bought it. This is a fast paced great read if you enjoy the zombie genre. I love old British Sci-Fi and this book gave me the same feeling. Great character development, just enough detail to give you a real sense of what was going on. The pics were cute, but a bit difficult to read the notations on my kindle. The story keeps you drawn in, waiting for the next 'thing' to happen. I loved the ending - SPOILER ALERT - How else could an Englishman's story end? The Queen, knights and barons!

I especially enjoyed the action of the beginning of the novel, it seemed the pace slowed down toward the end. Good, interesting characters and a story well told.

5.0 out of 5 stars really enjoyed it
It was a nice change to see one set in the UK, not in the US. They used their area well and I think it's a great take on the whole zombie apocalypse genre.

This is my third read and if anything I enjoyed it even more than the first time. Beautifully crafted story, character driven plot and my kind of zombies. Don't miss this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second British book
This is an interesting take on Zombies. I enjoyed it thoroughly. A little free on the drugs, and a lot of food I would never intentionally cook, or eat.

A very good book that is the most realistic that I've read so far.
