Editorial Reviews

Review

"A clever and creative epistolary narrative of the zombie apocalypse." -S.G. Browne, author of Breathers and Fated

"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.

It's great coffee table material.
Chris White
The longer "notes" might possibly be a redeeming quality if the picture wasn't oriented sideways and too small to read.

I definitely recommend this book to all you zombie fans out there!

I recently bought the Kindle version. Much of this story is told on handwritten scaps of paper. This makes the Kindle version wasted money as it is difficult to decipher. I set the font to the largest possible and the clarity did not get any better. It may be a good read, but not on the Kindle

I was lucky enough to get advanced copy of Dead Inside Do Not Enter, and I was glued to it. It's a highly entertaining scrap book that contains user generated notes that follow the LostZombies.com story line... Reading through it, the notes seems eerily real, even though they're fictitious notes generated by the Lost Zombies community. This is the coolest example of a user generated book I've ever seen.

Format: Paperback
"Dead Inside: Do Not Enter" is a collection of images of letters, text messages, post-it notes, forms, signs, photographs, memos, grocery lists and other material that tells a gripping fragmented story about the people across the United States and the world dealing with a zombie apocalypse from a mutated "super flu" virus. It has enough tropes of the zombie genre to feel familiar, but there's also something new about this book that I have never seen in any other zombie story, and that comes from its many convincing perspectives.

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.

I found this book to be a poignant and realistic portrayal of life and death following a devestating loss of human life. From outright terror to hope and back again it encompasses what human experience might be like under such circumstances...outstanding...

If you're interested in zombie apocalypse literature -- as a writer, fan, or cosplay enthusiast -- include this book on your reading list. The notes in this book cover the full spectrum of "what if" topics related to zombies, and perhaps apocalypses, in general.

As a writer, I kept saying, "Wow. I never thought of that aspect of a zombie outbreak." This book portrays the very human side of the story, in greater -- sometimes far more poignant -- depth than you'd guess, on first glance.

Every page tells a story, in just a few words.

Do not overlook this book because it seems merely cute or funny or gimmicky. Especially for writers working in the zombie genre, this is a tremendous resource.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Steven Saus on January 21, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is one of the most wonderfully bleak books that I've read recently.

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.

A future.

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.

Highly recommended.

I was a bit skeptical at first. I really did not know what to expect from a book of snippets. I was wrong.

This was an amazing way to bring this story to life. You almost feel as though you could find those notes or they may have been written for your benefit. It follows a basic timeline thoughout and truly kept my attention.

Great job.
