When I came across the "Click Your Poison" series I was excited, and I ate those books right up. Now I'm hooked! So I have been reading every choose-your-fate book I can get my hands on. "Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?" wasn't my favorite choose-your-fate book to date, but it was pretty high up on the list.
My only real complaint would have to be the fact that it was a little too short. At least one storyline (out of a possible three(ish?)) only consisted of one adventure, and I was at "the end" before I even realized what hit me. A second storyline could have also been a little longer too, but it consisted of a longer period of time and had more action.
The descriptions were excellent; and the artwork was a nice touch. I truly felt like I was the main character in the story - trying to make it right along with the other survivors. Plus, there were few, if any, editing errors; which I have always felt to be important. There is nothing worse than spelling errors, sentences written twice, and other junk like that. It can really ruin the flow of a book, and I am very glad to say that I actually don't recall noticing any errors.
I believe that pretty much anyone will enjoy this book. It's not for young children; but pre-teens, teens, young adults, and adults of all ages will have hours of exciting adventures ahead of them.
I opened it up and starting reading/adventuring and the next thing I knew- 2 hours had gone by without a notice.
Good word art.visualization.
Its not your G rated, everyone going to make it Disney book. It real life, dilema with some tongue in cheek play. Even some choices if you went weasle route, the Author cold smacks you for being a douche!
Great fun! Even when you think you goign to make it, you might not!
It has all sorts of things:Bike gangs, art museums, love of your life, striper samurai (yes I said samurai stripper!), school kid dilemas, police swat, military, marine sniper and huge a$$ rifle!
Looking forward to reading with the team mates and making it a drinking game. Its that fun!
If you like Zombie books or fun this is a book to get!
My only 2 regrets are:
1) should had ordered a NEW copy (the used is fine but after reading it and luvin it, going to get another NEW copy for sure)
2) Should have bought this a long time ago, it's that good abook!
All in all a FANTASTIC read. Whether you're a zombie fan or not you won't be able to help yourself from laughing and consequently loving all the situations that you wind up in. I don't know how $10 could entertain you more!
What impressed me: More often than not, the situations in this book felt realistic. Nothing was innovative, with most decisions being those zombie fans have already seen numerous times in movies. But that was part of the fun, getting to make the choices you've seen before for yourself, instead of just thinking the movie characters were some sort of idiots.
What disappointed me: The short answer is no. You cannot survive the zombie apocalypse. I reread this book, choosing different paths at least eight times and always, always, died one way or another - some more grisly than others. Maybe that's the point of the book, that no one can survive, but that doesn't make it very fun.
Recommended: Yes. While the constant deaths were annoying, this is definitely a book zombie fans are going to want to experience for themselves.
