Format: Paperback
I met Linda Zimmerman at Lunacon at a panel on (what else?) How to Survive the Apocalypse (Zombies Optional). I was impressed by her answers and when she mentioned her book I decided to take a chance and buy a copy from her. GREAT CALL.

I was immediately drawn into it. As a firearms instructor, I usually wince when authors make stupid errors - and I didn't wince ONCE. The factual subject matter that I was familiar with was spot on; this may not seem important to all readers, but when I read something that I KNOW is wrong, it yanks me right out of that book and back to the real world. If you accept the basic premise (zombies CAN happen), everything else followed logically.

It was a book that had me sympathizing with the main character and fearful for her safety in the zombie-infested Hudson Valley. I felt myself dragged right into the action with her: felt her elation when things were going right, felt her doubt when she began to doubt her own humanity, felt her fear when surrounded by hundreds of ravening, flesh-eating zombies.

GREAT book. Buy it; you won't regret it. Well... except maybe for at 3 AM when you're either A) still up reading because can't put this page-turner down or B) waking up out of a zombie nightmare because the characters and situations in the book can seem so REAL. But buy it anyway.

Who doesn't love a good Zombie movie? From Zombie land to 28 days later, Zombies are something we here on planet Earth could readily accept as a possible end to civilization. And we've all imagined what we'd do if faced in that situation. My friends and I have an evac plan ready in case of a zombie attack, no joke.

So, I can happily say that HVZA was not a disappointment. In fact, it was pretty fracking awesome. You always go into a zombie story with some trepidation it's going to be corny, but HVZA delivered. It was terrifying, had some awesome laugh out loud moments, plenty of holy-crap-wtf-they're-gonna-die! scenes, and good ole fashioned heart pumping, page turning action. Every time our heroine questioned her humanity, you as the reader did too. You relate, you get sucked in, seriously it's been a while since I enjoyed a book so much. Five stars and two thumbs up.

Format: Paperback
Is a real zombie apocalypse coming? You may believe so after you read this book. I have always been a fan of zombie movies, particularly the films by George Romero, and have loved the plots, special effects and of course, the zombies munching on human victims! But there was always something implausible in those films... dead, rotting bodies moving with no real scientific basis; vague references to a `virus', or `radiation' as being the cause. Essentially, there has always been enough artistic license and fantasy to make the films psychologically tolerable. Yes, they could be scary, but there was no reality behind the story. Well, Linda Zimmermann has just taken away that safety blanket. Hudson Valley Zombie Apocalypse takes you to a place where no other zombie story has ever taken you: reality. The science behind the zombie plague in HVZA is frighteningly plausible. Zombies are no longer something that just seems to happen because a space probe fell to earth or some unspecified virus has contaminated the human race. Rather, there is a medical reason behind zombies and their rapid and deadly proliferation. Zimmermann's zombies are also unique. Yes, they feast upon the living - and one another at times - but Zimmermann rattles your soul and sense of safety by making the zombies a physiologically based reality! Bottom line: Zimmermann's zombies are a real possibility!
In addition to the well researched and thought out plot, the characters are believable and easy to identify with. Zimmermann really hits home with her depiction of life during the collapse of civilization, and the heart wrenching losses, choices and sacrifices that people must make in order to survive.

Format: Paperback
I'll never forget June 12, 2012 at 7:03pm. It was Tuesday, and I had just met Linda Zimmerman at the Barnes & Noble in Nyack, NY.

HVZA tells a great tale of the much-awaited, highly dreaded Zombie Apocalypse; only now for me, and many like me it strikes home - literally, as it tells the tale of the beginning of the end for people living in and around the Hudson Valley / Rockland County area.

The characters in it are amazing; they have feeling and depth, and above all, they are highly believable and more important - likeable. The writing flows easily, and keeps the reader engaged. There is no need of page upon page of superfluous descriptions of everyday items, or people's physical appearances. The action feels real, and the book unfolds effortlessly. I found it very difficult to put this one down, and devoured it (if you'll forgive the pun) in two days.

Mrs. Zimmermann has done her homework well too - her descriptions of the use of firearms, medical terminology, the various stages of decomposition and the carnage the zombies inflict, as well as the geography of the region are all accurate, and leave the reader in no doubt as to the plausibility of the tale being told. HVZA is an enjoyable and gripping story that is a challenge to put down. I give this book two thumbs up, and eagerly await the up and coming graphic novel currently in the works.
