Now back to the regularly scheduled biography...

Mark Clodi (born March 30th, 1969) is the author of many zombie apocalypse novels and short stories. At an early age Mark was hooked on fantasy and the pulp fiction of the 'Golden Age of Science Fiction'. While moving around the mid-west with his parents he continued to feed his frenzied reading by buying fiction at yard sales and utilizing the local libraries. The thought of actually becoming a writer struck him at an early age, but he never followed through on his dream until he was much older and 'settled in' to a career as a computer programmer. His writing started one day while trading emails back and forth with Mike Keleman, the co-author of his first book. They started assigning chapter numbers to the emails and the rest, as they say, is history.

He lives in a small town in Iowa in the United States with his wife and family, plus three dogs and two cats. On any given Saturday night no matter what the temperature, rain or shine, you can find him on the rough 'man-deck' behind his house grilling, reading and listening to the radio by the light of an L.E.D. light.

Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and unbelievably lame dialogue make this book too painful to endure. What is a "Lugar"? Not a German pistol, that's for sure. The story at least starts out well, but I had to quit about 15% of the way through the book, when the urge to have one of the undead chew my eyeballs out became too strong to ignore...

Did anyone proofread this story? Multiple typos on a page often times. As far as the story goes, I prefer traditional non speaking zombies. Nevermind some of the things the authors have them doing. Laundry? Good God.

This is the story of a regular work day at the start of a zombie apocalypse. After getting a sample, I was hooked on the story. The zombies were really different. It still has the shambling zombies, but the story also contains "smart" zombies. Each time a zombie feeds it regenerates and gets stronger and smarter. Also some zombies had some pings of humanity. I do not usually like this in my stories. I usually really like the old fashion romero type zombies, but the author did a good job with it so it did work for me. Not bad for an independent book. This book really is in some bad need of editing! I would have given this story a much better rating if not for the mispellings and errors. It is so distracting.

When I first started reading this e-book, I really did not think I would finish it. The story resembled something written for young teens, the characters flat, the story rushed. Luckily I was bored and had nothing else to read so i stuck with it. Once they got out of the building the character's personalities grew as did the story. It bloomed out dragging you along by introducing a new form of "smart" zombies but kept the "shamblers". The "Smart" zombies kept their thoughts and personality from before they were changed, grew smarter, could talk and became stronger the more they fed, and the "shamblers" were just your traditional stupid, non talking "brainnnnnns" type. Even though i am a die hard "brainnnnns" fan, I liked the new smart zombies. I liked how it showed the story from the zombies point of view. It was more of "evolution" than a "invasion" of zombies. Its about time zombies became as smart as vampires and take their place as something that could form its own society to feed off the weaker humans. Its soooo nice to see them as something other than a monster to just fear and bash their heads in. I can see great possibilities for the story to grow out to a new world order type thing where the zombies become the dominate species and humans battle for a spot to live and not be food.

The typos and mis-labeled/named characters were distracting and confusing. There is a part where Nancy is slapping Jimbo and it says Fred. I had to read that section several times to understand it. And then there is a chapter that ends with just the end half a sentence hanging. It makes you wonder what you missed.

Over all for the price I paid to read the story, it was totally worth it. I am intrigued and off to buy the others by Mark Clodi. I totally recommend it as a read, just take the errors with a smile, no one is perfect.

This book is a great book. You read the first page and it is impossible to put down. On the downside, the characters curse way to much, and it looks like he didn't even bother to have someone edit it. So, if you can put up with tons of cussing and bad editing, then I recommend you read this book.

I really liked this book! There are still editorial errors but not so much that it`s painful. The story is so different than the ones I`m used to! Reading the next one now and can already tell the editing is much better.

At first, the book seem`s pretty stupid. As you get farther in, some of the outcomes may be upsetting, which is a good thing. There ARE a few things that go against many zombie movies and guides.

Forced myself to read this "newer and corrected version" of this book a little longer but had to finally give it up about 15% of the way through. There is nothing in this book to recommend it except the concept of the story. The dialogue is poorly constructed, virtually no contractions are used,so it's stilted. There are so many words used as description that it takes away from the storyline and leaves the reader wondering when something of action will finally happen.

I love zombie books and I'm not a literary genius or an editor and very rarely do I stop reading mid-story. This book reads like something a school student might write. Authors, when you fix a broken story, do it right. Really wish I could say go ahead and get it, but even if it's free, don't waste your time.

Sorry, authors, better luck next time!
