5.0 out of 5 stars Great festive read 2 Jan. 2015

Good quick read by the ever-brilliant Lansdale. Just to touch on what has been previously mentioned, this is approximately 30 pages long & not 300 as is advertised. This is a great festive read about a man who is determined not to let the zombie holocaust ruin Christmas & even though you'll read it in one sitting it will still give you everything you'd expect from a story of this ilk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great short story 1 Jan. 2014

I really enjoyed this book and would love to see it on screen in the future. The main character was well developed and the story flowed well. This is how zombie survival should be. I fully recommend this to fans of the genre.

1.0 out of 5 stars MISINFORMATION! 25 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I WAS TEMPTED BY THIS DUE TO THE VERY REASONABLE KINDLE PRICE (45P) AND THE ADVERTISED NUMBER OF PAGES. (300) HOWEVER, CHECKING ON WIKIPEDIA ABOUT THE STORY IT TURNS OUT IT IS A SHORT STORY! RE-CHECKING THE ADVERT THE ACTUAL LENGTH IS 162KB WHICH IS ABOUT 30? PAGES, SO BE AWARE OF THIS BIT OF MISINFORMATION. I CERTAINLY SHALL IN FUTURE PURCHASES.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming 26 Dec. 2013
By pvlimbaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a great story! For the past two years Calvin has been alone, after a freak electrical storm turned everyone who witnessed it into zombies including his wife and daughter. Two long lonely years barricaded in his home and Calvin decides he is going to celebrate Christmas!
He ventures out to the local Super Market to pick up a tree and other decorations and of course has a run in with zombies. While fleeing with his Christmas haul he spots a dog having his own run in with the zombies. Calvin rescues the dog, and the two return home for their Christmas celebration. What happens next is so surprisingly different that it will warm your heart! A definite must read!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Good Read 21 May 2014
By Brett Grossmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Its all over so fast. Nothing new as far a the zombie genre can give you…that said..I loved this tale. Lansdale can write. This book is a great deal. Scoop it up. I really got to know the lead character. So sorry to finish the book so fast. Maybe we will get Easter with the DEad or something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aw 9 May 2014
By javamonster - Published on Amazon.com

I'll have to read this one outoud to my teens this coming Christmas, I think.

Maybe Lansdale had that in mind when he wrote it. Yes, it's got the trademark Lansdale grossness in it, but at the same time, it's poignant and yet fierce in its protagonist's attitude for survival. Kinda like if everyone in A Christmas Carol went zombie except Bob Cratchit. Kind of.

Anyway, I enjoyed it, and it has a home on my iPad Kindle program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holiday Cheer With the Undead 5 Feb. 2014
By William T. Masonis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is typical laconic Landsdale, and it is why we love him. A swell tale of one lone zombie apocalypse survivor's determination not to let the end of the world prevent him from properly celebrating that magical season, and his diligence does not go unrewarded.

I love all of Joe Lansdale books. His writing is amazing and keeps you captivated. Some if it seems so real I've had to put the book down briefly to catch my breath because it feels that real!!
