This return to the FF world was great fun - but with much of the frustrations of some of the earlier books.
If you have never played them then they are great fun for teenagers and will make it easier for them to get into reading in an enjoyable way. If you like Zombies and role play then this may be for you, although there are notable mentions for a couple of alternative books released before B.O.T.Z - firstly 'How to survive the Zombie Apocalypse' by Max Brailler - no dice play and written in a tongue in cheek 'laddish' way (not enough choices though) and also Risen: The Zombie Survival Game by Craig Earl. This was a much more mature effort and included the dice play and much more interesting moral choices to make.
All in all, these three books all offer something to the genre and in an age where video games rule they are a good option to get back into books!
