Beyond this page lies unspeakable horror. Bone-crunching, blood-splattering, brain-impaling horror—the horror of the zombie apocalypse. I get it, I do. This isn't intended to be taken seriously at all.
I mean, it's a choose-your-own-adventure about surviving a zombie apocalypse , for fuck's sakes. But I felt the introductory sentence was reaaaaaally overreaching. There is no unspeakable horror here. It's a whole lot of silliness, a whole lot of stupidity, and really It wasn't even fun to read. It involved more eye-rolling action than anything involving an uplift of my mouth. The choices offered are so very limited, and so often incredibly stupid, that I never felt like I was a part of the adventure.
In order to be immersed in this type of choose-your-own type book, the reader actually has to believe in the credibility of the characters' actions and thoughts, and I just could not put myself in the position of the person in the book.
You live in a crappy, overpriced studio apartment in Manhattan. Up until now, your day-to-day life offered few surprises. But today, on a hot and humid July morning, zombies have come to Manhattan.
I mean, I like to think of myself as a smart person. I like to think I'm a little more rational and intelligent than the person depicted. The scenarios are short vignettes, pages long at times, at the end of which, the reader gets to choose between one of several options regarding their next step. As the story starts, I'm doing my daily grind, counting down the minutes until 5 PM, bored as fuck; anyone can relate to that, really.
All of a sudden. The cute receptionist bursts into the conference room, blabbering something incoherently and turns on the TV. It is a reputable news source, and chaos is what we see. The patient is biting the doctor. No, not just biting. Eating him—devouring the guy. Tearing into his flesh with her teeth and hands. Clawing at his body. Ripping skin from his limbs. As she tosses her head back to chew, stringy flesh hangs from her teeth. Mobs of the infected form from the infected hospital source, hordes stumble from within, drenched in blood, faces pasty white.
It's pretty obvious that it's a zombie apocalypse. What do I do? You head for your cubicle. You get to your computer and start typing. Initially, the choices are fairly easy, after that, the choices become rather You get to choose between drinking away the pain with beer or taking a call from your mom. Your mom. Then you fucking run into some movie buffs preparing for a fictional Zombie Walk which is unfortunately now a very, very real thing.
What do you do? Naturally, you sit down and discuss fucking zombie movies. Everyone's fucking read The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead and we theoretically know how to behave when confronted with situations where we might be eaten.
This book goes against all common sense, and I personally would not make any of the decisions presented from the extremely limited list of options with which this book presented me. Of course, I didn't read the entire book, it's not designed to be read that way, but I've read and went back to choose enough of the options to know that this book was neither amusing nor scary.
Skip it. Go reread some Max Brooks; his books are more realistic and more enjoyable. This book just made me want to stand in one place and be eaten by the zombies ; at least it'd be a quick death and I wouldn't hate myself for "my" idiocy throughout the entire decision-making process within this so-called "adventure.

Zombies hit Manhattan while you are in the middle of a corporate company meeting. Quicker than you can blink an eye, they are everywhere. People are panicking. The streets are clogged. And you have to make a decision. Do you: a Hail a cab? This is the moment where all those Zombie books and movies are supposed to mean something. How many times did you sit there, on the couch, watching some dumb ass actors make som Zombies hit Manhattan while you are in the middle of a corporate company meeting.
How many times did you sit there, on the couch, watching some dumb ass actors make some dumb ass decisions that ended up getting them cornered and killed?

YOU get to choose what the character does.
