"This book does not have funny zombies. Nor cool zombies. It's not even about the zombies. It's about the people left behind. From scrawled notes and crumpled photos emerge stories of ordinary people dealing with a personal apocalypse. They are touching, harrowing, and incredibly sad." - Max Barry, author of Jennifer Government and Company
"At once funny, tragic, compelling, and unexpected . . . a collection of artifacts from the apocalypse, the last words of the forgotten. Powerful!" -Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Zombie CSU, Patient Zero, and Rot & Run.

This book, lovingly crafted by devoted fans of the Zombie genre, really shines in its authentic voices. There is a genuine raw emotion that rings from the scribbled words and sketches included in the piece that is simultaneously horrifying and heart-breaking. Adding to the authenticity are unique handwriting (not just hand-writing fonts) and common spelling and grammar mistakes often seen in hand-written notes without spell-check to catch them out.
I must say, when I picked up this book, which I found in a quirky craft store, I had never heard of the Lost Zombies community, but after flipping through it, I googled it when I arrived home. And immediately, I had an answer to what made this tome so powerful. It was a labor of love created by people who really knew their zombie movies. The reason there are so many different voices in the notes and letters is because they were literally written by different people. Even so, they all follow the same rules of the universe, the same facts and storyline, and because of that there's also a cohesiveness to the piece that's rare in a piece that has so many contributors.
If you're into zombies, this is definitely a must-read. If you're into pseudo-historical fiction or even just chilling, touching and reaffirming insights into human nature, you should definitely check this book out. It's not to be missed.
Basically what I am trying to say is this book had the potential to be really good and you can clearly see that with some notes and the atmosphere the book takes place in. Yet the inclusion of one worded notes, a picture of a half torn sign where the evacuation will take place, and sloppy cursive long winded notes ruin it.You can finish the book in less than an hour so.Read more ›
It's all made up of "found" objects and momentos. Photographs, notes, messages, all discovered in a backpack by an anonymous survivor.
Some of the items were never meant for posterity - bits of silent conversation on paper carried on when the dead were nearby. Some are clearly confessions, memories, hurried memoirs scrawled out to a transient hope of a future posterity. A future reader.
This book requires a suspension of disbelief. Try to read it bit by bit or like a regular novel, and you will have no idea what I'm talking about.
Set aside an hour or two. Find a relatively quiet place where you won't be bothered. Have other people nearby for extra points.
Read straight through. Pause with each page, but don't stop. Let each photo, each note build in an ongoing crescendo of horror.

Sometimes hits deeply, but a little too short. I was hoping for a sequel of some sort, but it seems the group is disbanded. Still, it's a neat zombie book to have.Published 8 months ago by Aaron
