3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of fun, 29 May 2012
This review is from: Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse? (Paperback)
With my current obsession with zombie fiction a friend bought me this for my birthday. It is an interesting concept. I loved the idea of making your own choices, especially as so often when reading a zombie book you end up screaming at the page Nooooo don't do it, don't go in there! Or something similar. Generally this book works quite well, you read a few pages and then it gives you 2 or 3 options of what you want to do, sometimes it just sends you on to another page, and you continue reading and making choices. Each choice will either take you further with the story, lead you to survival, lead to your death or lead to you becomming a zombie!

One issue I had was the main character whose viewpoint this is set on is male. I am not and it was annoying that at times I couldn't pretend the main character was me because of the obvious references to him being male, like references to a certain appendage, one I definitely do not have! I think it would have been better if the character was not written so obviously male, making it easier to pretend this person is you, but it didn't completely ruin it.

Sometimes you make a choice, knowing it to be very logical, and the outcome is just bizaare, something would happen that is so unpredictable and unlikely, but then I suppose this is a zombie story so what should we expect!

Overall I did enjoy this, its fun to try the different options and be "oh no I died" or "yay I survived!" Its something you can pick up and put down, its a bit of fun and not a proper novel so you don't get deep into the characters or anything. It is well written and fun, I guess thats the aim of it. If you are a zombie fan then this is well worth a read as long as you don't have massively high expectations.
