Editorial Reviews

Review

While other books about surviving zombie outbreaks are out there, this is by far the most complete, comprehensive of them all, and it is a must have if planning on surviving the inevitable upcoming zombie apocalypse --Hayes Hudsons House of Horror

Sean T. Page goes into such detail and reflection that the line between fact and fiction does not seem to exist... I got the Official Zombie Handbook (UK) on Saturday, within 2 days I had it read from cover to cover --zombiemall

I highly recommend this book to add to any collection of zombie literature! --Ursula K. Raphael, --Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer

This excellent, fascinating and entertaining book is like a cross between the Galactic Geographic sections of Heavy Metal magazine, a Fangoria book review, a Resident Evil strategy guide, and a survivalist doctrine written by George Romero. Dark humor and satire abound, as do random acts of grossology. But it also has a very serious side. It is well-researched in the fields of history and psuedohistory alike, sometimes creating a sensation of alternate history, which should appeal to the many fans of that particular genre. So in that way, it's kind of a cross-over, a genre-bender if you will. It's educational, citing myths from ancient Africa and historical mysteries like the disappearance of the Incans, to more recent events like wars in Burma, and then tying them all together in one bloody knot. I would imagine this book took a long time to write, unless the author was a history major and a biology major with a photographic memory, and maybe a few other college degrees and superpowers, as well. He's obviously a pretty erudite dude. It's meticulously researched, and disturbingly enough seems extremely plausible at times. There are parts that read like stories from the Zombie Zoology anthology. Watch out for those Z-Sharks! The guide to weapons is particulary cool. It seems to be modeled from a Dungeons and Dragons set, with durability and damage ratings for each one. The author could probably invent a pretty cool zombie role-playing game if he wanted to, or a video game, or both. Overall, this book feels so realistic and yet so out-there that I still can't figure out if everything in the bibliography-esque section at the back of the book is real or not. It's unorthodox, it's eclectic, and it's eminently readable. Buy this book. The life-or undeath-you save may be your own.

Well folks this may well be the last zombie book I review. The genre has become much like the zombies themselves a bloated, stinking festering pile of rotting flesh. 99% of the books that I decide not to review after reading them, are zombie books. It seems that every man and their dog thinks they can write a zombie novel. In a lot of these cases they should have got the dog to write the novel, their cat to edit it, and the goldfish to design the cover.

But hey lets not dwell on the negative. I want to go out on a high note, which brings me to Sean T Page's The Official Zombie Handbook. I interviewed Sean a while back, and like the sound of this how to book. Some quarters have compared the book to Max Brook's books, but I have never read, so I can't compare it to them.

What we have here is a well thought out, highly researched and detailed how to survive a zombie outbreak. TOZH, has been written with a UK slant, so unlike our American cousins, who have ready access to all sort of firearms, the problems faced by us Brits are bit more intense.

Sean, leads us by the hand in a comprehensive survival guide. From how to identify an outbreak, the definitions of a zombie, how to barricade your home, and what weapons to use.

His 90 day survival plan is a must read. This is an engrossing read, that manages to entertain and inform at the same time. With the predicted apocalypse fast approaching, this book may very well become a required read for us Brits. I'm prepared are you? And no don't even think about trying to hitch in with me, my cellar is loaded with food, and I am armed to the teeth.

I had a blast reading this and I think you will as well

I received this book as a gift, and, even though I am located in the states, I was very interested in this handbook by Sean Page. I mistakenly thought it would be a slightly different version of The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, but after reading through the whole thing, I was pleasantly surprised at the originality of Page's effort.

As a result of the debates and discussions within the zombie community, the genre has been growing and evolving. However, the general public still remains unaware of the danger of potential outbreaks. Even though there have already been several guides/manuals written, most of the books do not contain practical guidelines that can be applied internationally.

Sean Page, the author, has taken it upon himself to write such a manual specifically for the UK, where it is nearly impossible to get your hands on a firearm for self-defense. He also points out that preparing for a zombie outbreak with his 90-day survival plan would appeal to the environmentally-conscientious with a "green" agenda (for example, self-sufficiency); as most zombiephiles know, if you're prepared for an apocalypse, you'll be prepared for any emergency.

Addressing the controversy over the various types zombies within the horror genre, Page defines a zombie as "a dead body that has been brought back to life by an as yet unidentified virus which leads to the body to behave in a low intelligent and cannibalistic way." He emphasizes that the cause of an outbreak is not as important as keeping yourself alive.
