If you remember the adventure game books of yesteryear with fondness, but like to be entertained by a tale with modern comedic sensibilities, this is for you. I'll definitely be looking out for other offerings from this author.
"Zombocalypse Now" is a light and entertaining take on the zombie apocalypse told from the point of view of a slightly clueless survivor just trying not to become one of the mindless creatures. The humour is quirky and has a satirical edge and will certainly make you smile. The pick-your-own element is fairly random and really the 'decision' you face at the end of each section may as well be down to the flip of a coin as obvious 'good' choices can often lead to your demise... although that's all part of the fun! The kindle format does work particularly well in this respect as there is a handy 'Back' button when you reach the end of a scenario (typically a gruesome death) which lets you retake your last decision. It is difficult to say more about the plot other than there are a huge variety of paths for your character and each read through won't take that long making it a good title to have for those times when you just want something easy going and amusing.
The only slightly negative point is that the character is a pink stuffed bunny - I appreciate this was probably the author's attempt at catching people's attention (and I guess it worked on me because it caught my eye and I bought it - and I know you're not supposed to judge them on their cover), but as a plot device I don't think it worked particularly well. Most of the other characters largely seem to ignore this fact and it is only relevant occasionally. A slightly hapless human would have been more relatable and most of the times I read it I was imagining a human rather than a bunny.
The story is amusing, but you must play several times to get the most out of it as each individual playthrough is very short and almost inevitably results in your death.
It has also been made into an app, but the kindle version is fine with hyperlinks and colour pictures. Recommended if you enjoy the old style choose your own adventure books and zombie apocalypses.
The Bunny was a good idea as it is not too often that you get to be a Stuffed Bunny running around in a Zombie book doing your very best to survive.
