Hee, hee, wait, just give me a moment to get myself together. Must get serious here. I just read The Zombie’s Survival Guide: Thrive in the Zombie Apocalypse After You Turn, written by Calvin Miller with artistry from Alan Gandy. What a fun book! There is some stuff in this book that made me smile, laugh, and some stuff that made me say “what, what?”
This is the first book I’ve read on how to survive the zombie apocalypse – as a zombie! I thought the book was damn funny – and yet I do feel more prepared in the event that I reach that point where I know I will turn. In fact, the book offers the advice to go ahead and infect yourself when you see the inevitable happening – on your own terms. Good advice. You can have your Kevlar suit and helmet, fresh meat, and other items ready once you pass through the re-animation shock – all this is explained in the book. The book suggests learning how to cook methamphetamine and stockpiling adrenaline, as these drugs will help you become a Class A Zombie. Oh, yeah, zombies are rated in classes from A to F, with A being the most intelligent – again, all explained in the book.
You’ll also learn about the different types of healthy humans you’ll encounter and how to attack them (hint – while they are sleeping or having sex is the best time), how to hunt and where to find food, where to live, and how to raise an army. This book is a must-have on any zombie fan’s bookshelf because you never know when you might find yourself on the other side of the zombie apocalypse – the odds are against you remaining a human. The artwork from Alan Gandy is awesome and much of the art can be photocopied and used as a coloring book. Don’t fight it – be prepared!
