Best zombie book EVER.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Beginning of the End (Apocalypse Z Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
There are many reasons to love this book. First of all, it's utterly realistic. As a long time zombie books aficionado, I've found all classes of undead literature. I've enjoyed many books, but very few gave me the sense of wonder and down-to-earth feelings that I've got reading Manel Loureiro's Apocalypse Z. Also, the Nameless Lawyer is such an incredible achievement that, as a writer myself, made me jealous of Loureiro in every page. He is witty, he is clever, he is brave, he is a survivor. But above it all, the Nameless Lawyer is a real human being, and every one of us readers can feel his pain, his suffering, his angst. He takes care of his cat in the midst of the end of the world, for G*d's sake! You'll root for him till the very end of the book, which will let you desperately crying for more. Good news, my friend: there are two more books on the way, and are as good, realistic and fresh as this one.
PD: Luculus the Cat is the best character in an horror book ever.

this is the best book I've read in years. I can't find any news about the translation for the next book... do you have any info about it?

Actually I know that all the three books have been acquired by Amazon Book Crossing. They are being translated now.

I completely agree with everything you said here. I'm considering brushing up on my high-school Spanish to try and read the other two. I really enjoyed it *that* much :)

Would this book be appropriate for a younger teenage to read? Thanks so much!!!

Alas Amazon says:
Personally, I'd say that no zombie books are appropriate for younger teens (and I'm saying that as a former secondary teacher and as a mom/grandmother).

I wonder if there is a place in Amazon that we could be notified when an author we like comes out with a new book? I HAVE to read the next two - in English though!

@ K. Rennie - I tend to agree zombie books are probably not appropriate for any young teens. As for this one in particular it has quite a bit of swearing in it. I'm sure they've heard all the words before, but that doesn't mean it's good to throw it at them as entertainment. Also, some parts of the in book get somewhat graphic and gory in its description. There are plenty of other good Apocalypse books appropriate for younger readers. The Wool series comes to mind, granted they are not zombie books.
