Hard to believe that an adult version of the Choose Your Own Adventure concept has not been done like this before... the possibilities are endless here. I could see Wallace developing a cult following with these books. I'm definitely looking forward to the next one...
The zombies aren't your only concern, however.
Thieves, cults, roadblocks, gun-nut survivors, and military defenses are just some of what you'll have to deal with as you make your escape. It's the one little thing you don't expect, one wrong turn, one bad decision that will get you killed.
It's going to take more than guts and a gun to get you out alive. Use your knowledge of the event, your instincts, and every
ounce of your luck.
Maybe it will be enough.
Maybe you'll find the one way out.
Yes you read that right, you rae stuck in a city that is over run with zombies. This is one of those choose your own adventure books, that many of us will have fond memories off from our childhood.
I loved those books, I read them when times were much simpler, when the only thing I had to worry about was getting up for my paper round. I never Dungeons and Dragons, mainly because my jock friends would have pummelled me for being such a geek. So The Choose Your Own Adventure books were my dirty little secret.
Now fast forward more years than I care to think about, and here I am faced with a part of my childhood, will it bring back great memories or will it sully a great memory?
As many of you know I'm kind of bored of the whole zombie genre, I think it's getting stale very quickly. So hats of to Ray Wallace for coming up with a novel novel, and for getting me to pick up this book.Read more ›
At its heart, it's a well-written zombie survival yarn but you have to remember, this is a choose your own adventure. Periodically, you are given choices & decide what to do next. That means sometimes your story will be long, sometimes short - depends on you & a bit of luck...
This is a really welcome re-visit to a wonderful genre of book & Ray Wallace does it very well.
I didn't actually finish the book - so why review it? It's that kind of book. You fail first time, you pick it up, try again. It's not a regular cover to cover book. There is more interaction than that.
In terms of the content, the stories are your typical zombie fare and there must be hundreds of ways to die, I think I found at least 10 but then this is the zombie apocalypse.
One big difference - be assured, this is a grown up book. The writing style is crisp & everything you would expect from a seasoned horror writer. The story lines are gritty & involve everything from cults to bloody murders.
Thoroughly recommended. Well done Mr Wallace.

While the overall story line was decent, there was only one "good" ending. It felt like there was only one right way to survive.Published on January 7, 2013 by Joel Doolittle
