Product Description

Product Description

Hipsters. Shane hates them. They dress like artists, but they think like yuppies. They drive up the cost of living in San Francisco, making it nearly impossible for people like Shane to survive. And now they're starting to act really weird, moaning and shuffling and trying to bite…

A terrifying sickness is spreading through the city, transforming the streets into a nightmare of cannibalism and murder. Shane joins forces with a ragtag band of misfits— Mexican punks, butch Chinese lesbians, Castro bears and Oakland thugs—to seek shelter and stay alive. But safety doesn't always come in numbers. And chaos isn't always unplanned…

San Francisco is dead. Welcome to Zombie City.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 22 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a different take on zombies. Shane, a wannabe poet working as a janitor at a high-tech start-up, is right in the middle of the zombie start-up, which seems to be confined to San Francisco.
He manages to survive, with help, then he and his companions start to piece together what has happened and who is behind it. They decide to take action.
Shane is a chump at first, slow on the uptake and too fond of alcohol, but he eventually gets his act together.
Well-written, weighty and with no obvious editing errors.

I lost count of how many times the main character "blacked out". Not a bad idea, but too many things fell into place too easily, leaving the story lacking any real credability. I hope the author doesn't give up. They've clearly got some good ideas, just lacking a little structure and taking the easy way out with the story line. I give it a C-.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, readable book 22 Aug 2014
By Peggy B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A bit repetitive especially the first half - Shane spends an awful lot of time having his ankle grabbed by a zombie or running into a locked door or killing a zombie or helping someone who turns out to be a zombie. Very action-packed but oddly a bit boring as it goes on because it's pretty much the same action over and over again. Second half picks up once he joins a group and they go on a mission to find the person behind it all. Good characters and very readable - a cut above the usual zombie writing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Horribly Bad, But Not Especially Good Either 26 Aug 2014
By schutzenschnurr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The mechanical construction and editing are quite good; the actual story itself not so much. This is another well-written, not very good zombie tale.

The plot and the action are very predictable and formulaic - think of any zombie story cliché and it's probably included. The supporting characters are thin and stereotypical - the scrappy Hispanic punk chick with her pink mohawk, Starlight Starbright the hippie chick, the outlaw biker bad-guys, the grizzled Vietnam vet, and the Pakistani intern doctor who also whips up illicit drugs in his spare time, to name but a few.

Oh, and because this happens in San Francisco, about half to two-thirds of the characters are gay.

I felt zero connection with the main protagonist - he was an idiot from the git-go, and remained an idiot throughout. When he wasn't busy getting smarter, tougher, better prepared survivors killed, he was repeatedly doing the same stupid things over and over again. About the only thing he didn't do to get himself killed was to wear a big flashing sign that said "TASTY IDIOT! COME EAT ME!"

Through a series of highly unlikely coincidences, the main characters discover who the bad guy is, have a couple of run-ins with his inept minions, discover and disable a key piece of his nefarious villain equipment, and track him to his lair.

In what has to be the most clichéd of all clichés, the main characters get a clear shot at the bad guy, but delay in killing him until he has given his obligatory expositional monologue. As the monologue concludes, he discovers that they're there and escapes - setting up for the chase, fight, and final hoisting with his own petard.

Really, the only thing it didn't have was sharks with frickin' lasers in their heads.

It was free, so I'm okay with that, and it was well constructed and easy to read, but it just wasn't very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars WORST ZOMBIE BOOK EVER WRITTEN 25 Aug 2014
By A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has got to be the absolute WORST, WORST, WORST zombie book I have ever read. And I have read my fair of zombie books. A few zombie books were awesome, many were very good, some were pretty good and just a few have been painful to finish reading but until I came upon Zombie City, I have always been able to at least finish reading each zombie novel. This is the first book I have closed at 51% read. I refuse to continue to read this horrid. Worst zombie writer ever.

It is very repetitive with its action scenes. The same thing over and over and over again with the main character never getting a clue, never acquiring any sort of weapon, never adapting any coordination or sense of survival. Rather than rise to the occasion, he starts to daydream. . . Really?? Then, then, then just when he is finally at the point where he gets a breather and can mentally regroup, what does our "hero" do??? He gets fallen down drunk to the point where he cannot even walk or stand up straight. . . . That is the point I closed the book. . . I so wanted him to get eaten. I read ahead to some of the other books in this series and from what I have read in the blurb, this series is sure to irritate. . . Poorly written, no imagination, no character development. . . . Do not waste your money on this one. There are too many good zombie novel writers. This omnibus book (first 5 books in the series) was not even worth the $0.99 I paid for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shane the Harry potter of zombie heros 7 Sep 2014
By taximom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I say this because Shane is a average Joe with no real skills. If you have read or seen the Harry movies you know while Harry gets the credit his success is usually an accident or because of those he hangs with. the author makes it believable how this unexpected person becomes a hero. I like the source of the source of the movies very inventive. But the phrase phase two makes me wonder if there is more on store for Shane and his group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy, clever, and fun 30 Aug 2014
By JesusS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this story first when it was published chapter by chapter and I couldn't wait for the next chapter to appear. I just finished reading it again in it's full format and I liked it even better than the first time. It is not the first zombie story I've read, but it is one of the more unique. It is creepy, suspenseful, at times a little gruesome, and at times unexpectedly funny. I highly recommend it. You won't be able to put it down.
