The zombic condition runs rampant,
This review is from: War Against the Walking Dead (Paperback)Like many prudent souls I spend much of my free time preparing for the impending zombie apocalypse. Many books are being published on the subject, to warn and inform. This is surely the best to help people in the face of the forthcoming outbreak of the walking dead that will reduce humanity to only the hardiest, luckiest and best prepared survivors.
After reading this volume, what can I say? Sean T Page has produced an exhaustively thorough and scientifically validated guide. It's impressively readable and consistently well supported with consultation from experts around the globe, and offers practical advice tempered with real world considerations.
Throughout the book achieves a minor miracle of balancing a factual, empirical tone with a robust sense of humour that makes many nods to the treatment of the undead in popular culture. 'War Against The Walking Dead' is peppered with nuggets like, "The dead will never stop their drive to feed on humans," and similar phrases which office computers should display randomly upon booting up first thing in the day.
The author has an intriguingly precise eye for the terminology of the subject - inhumo, zombiology, bug boy, homo zombiens, it's all good. This is a meticulous, exacting and funny book, with regular nods to the classics of military history and sociological observations.
Zombie studies - or zombiology - has been elevated to a new level.
"Remember, squashed brain for the zombies, compassion for the living."
