Zombie Survival Manual: The complete guide to surv&hellip by Sean T. Page

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedic RamPAGE, 28 Sep 2013
Okay, let's be clear. I like Page's books. He has an innate ability to infuse humour and a sense of gritty realism in a way no other zombie survivalist can. Yes, and that includes Brooks' WWZ. So it should come as little surprise that this, his latest zombie survival guide, is now considered as one of my all time favourite zombie tomes. What is a surprise for me is how Page has managed to surpass all of his previous works in a 'manual' that simply bristles with `factoids' and wonderful illustrations for the eager survivalist, yet creates such a sense of fun it is in danger of becoming a work of comedic genius. Advice ranges from the design of the perfect anti-zombie house, which is nothing… Read more

The ensuing mayhem revolves around how the protagonists attempt to outwit the strange collection of assailents and make a bid for… Read more

I picked this up out of interest after stumbling across a debate on the Amazon forums. It is, indeed, a short story concerning an ill-fated fishing trip and a creature from the deep. Positives include a nice brisk pace and easy, flowing narrative that raises a smile or two for the right reasons. Negatives include an ending that appears rushed and the overall piece is sorely in need of an edit.

So, then, three stars because two denotes under the Amazon rating system that I didn't like it. I did like it so it gets three. It is a serviceable tale with small teeth. With dedicated revision and editing its bite may become a lot sharper.
