"An excellent choice for the zombie completist." Kirkus Reviews
Top Customer Reviews
While this was once true, Zombies have evolved over time, and the old-school belief zombies still can't read is a myth. Zombies are somewhat intelligent, sensitive creatures (although, they might not seem sensitive by our preconceived human standards of sensitivity). While the loss of muscle tissue and some brain cells limit their communication abilities, they do think and are quite capable of following simple instructions, when they choose to (the activity MUST appear to benefit the Zombie in the long run, or you will receive little cooperation from them).
Even just a few years ago, it was believed that Zombie's still moved slowly and couldn't run, but we've all learned from some recent movies this is no longer the case. They simply have come to realize Humans (or Non-Zoms) tire easily when frightened and, in their fear of Zombies, make mistakes causing them to be more prone to capture, so there is simply no need to expel the energy needed to move quickly.
I'd highly recommend this book to any Zombie having issues coping with their current, un-dead condition. If there is a Zombie in your life with adjustment concerns, why not pick up a copy for him today?
You need to read this book. Once I started reading I couldn't stop!
Yes if you've recently woken up dead there is a good chance you'll end up with a copy of this handbook shortly after. Apparently they've been being printed in one form or another for YEARS! (Originally in blood on the flesh of their victims, kind of like the Necronomicon!) From how to hunt and how to keep your rotting corpse from quickly decomposing it's the ultimate hands on guide on how to live after you return from the dead craving nothing more than that wonderfully squishy gray matter. Yes that's right - brains.
Now the thing is adapting to a new body after reanimating can be a bit difficult. Your old fading memories and instincts will want to make you believe you can run, climb ladders, and all sorts of things! Fortunately practicality (or a copy of this guide) will quickly show you that all of these things are long in the past and you have to rely on your new and improved senses and strength to track down and kill dinner.Read more ›
That said, this is a useful and timely reference for the underprivileged Undead-Americans that face so much racism, prejudice and discrimination in today's overwhelmingly living-supremacist society.
Although there is a glut of zombie-esque books available at the moment, this book is in two of the lesser travelled perspectives - survivor guide, and zombie perspective. As such, it is quite unique within the genre.
This is a funny book - the sarcastic, witty comments following some quite serious hints and tips for the newly infected made me smile, snicker and on some occasions, laugh aloud. The diagrams, graphs and graphics add to the feel of the book as well as enhancing the points that it makes.
That said, some of the topics covered contradict our traditional ideas on the capabilities of zombies, however for me, that just added an extra consideration to what would happen when the zombapocalypse knocks on our door....or if, as I suspect, I'm an early victim!
