Review ~ The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks

Title: The Zombie Survival Guide
Author: Max Brooks
Copyright: 2006
Type: fiction
Pages: audio
Series: no

Reason for Reading: It sounded fun and hey I like zombies anyway I can get them

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, World War ZTheZombie Survival Guide is your key to survival against the hordes of undead who may be stalking you right now. Fully illustrated and exhaustively comprehensive, this book covers everything you need to know, including how to understand zombie physiology and behavior, the most effective defense tactics and weaponry, ways to outfit your home for a long siege, and how to survive and adapt in any territory or terrain.

Top 10 Lessons for Surviving a Zombie Attack 

1. Organize before they rise! 
2. They feel no fear, why should you?
3. Use your head: cut off theirs.
4. Blades don’t need reloading.
5. Ideal protection = tight clothes, short hair.
6. Get up the staircase, then destroy it. 
7. Get out of the car, get onto the bike.
8. Keep moving, keep low, keep quiet, keep alert!
9. No place is safe, only safer. 
10. The zombie may be gone, but the threat lives on. 

Don’t be carefree and foolish with your most precious asset—life. This book is your key to survival against the hordes of undead who may be stalking you right now without your even knowing it. The Zombie Survival Guide offers complete protection through trusted, proven tips for safeguarding yourself and your loved ones against the living dead. It is a book that can save your life.

I have to say that while at first I wasn't too impressed it was a very good how to guide which equals boring for someone driving. I mean you are telling me what type of weapon and how to shoot it and then how to go to the second floor and save water. It felt like a guide book that was step by step which is exactly what it is. However, when one is driving in a car it means that a person is very bored listening to it and let's be honest I don't have the best attention span when it comes to reading how to guides.
The reader was good but there was no way to make this book interesting unless you were really trying to prepare for a zombie attack and then well by all means take notes b/c I am sure that this will save your life at some point. That being said it was not something that I want to listen to. There were some laugh out loud moments of course like taking a bicycle over other transportation (if I could do that I wouldn't have to get in shape  as the book constantly reminded me to do) but all in all it was just kind of boring to listen to. Definitely not a sit down and read for enjoyment kind of book which is why it got such a low score from me. If you truly want to learn how to survive an attack by all means check it out but it is a how to guide nothing more. 

Goodreads Grade: 3 out of 5 stars

Would you recommend this book to others? Yes if you want to prepare for the future of zombies running around.
