So Now You’re a Zombie: A Handbook for the Newly Undead Book Review
Author : John Austin
Released : 2010
Summary (from Amazon.com) :
Being undead can be disorienting. Your arms and other appendages tend to rot and fall off. It’s difficult to communicate with a vocabulary limited to moans and gurgles. And that smell! (Yes, it’s you.) But most of all, you must constantly find and ingest human brains. Braaaains!!!
What’s a zombie to do?
Thankfully, zombiologist John Austin details everything you need to know, as a newly undead soul, to hunt, fight, and feed on the living. As the first handbook written specifically for the undead, So Now You’re a Zombie explains how you ended up in this predicament, the stages of zombification, and what you need to survive in this zombiphobic world. Dozens of helpful diagrams outline attack strategies, such as the Ghoul Reach, the Flanking Zack, the Bite Hold, and the Aerial Fall, to secure your human prey. You’ll even learn how to successfully extract the living from boarded up farmhouses and broken down vehicles.
This handbook also explores the upside of being a zombie. Gone are the burdens of employment, taxes, social networks, even basic hygiene, allowing you to focus on simple necessities in “life”: the juicy gray matter found in the skulls of the living.
Well this did look interesting. But sadly its not as great as expected. As interesting as it may sound, after about halfway through the book I felt as if I was reading the same thing over and over and over again. Now it does have its sense of humor. I failed to find it most of the time but this guy really did take tons of time devising plans on what to do and everything. Some of the stuff is funny plus a good idea.
Overall though its not really worth a full read.
