Zombie Survival Guide

It seems like I should really like Max Brooks's book, The Zombie Survival Guide. Unfortunately, I just can't do it. The reason that this tome sticks in my craw is because I read something very similar a few years before Brooks's book came out, "Repelling the Armies of Chaos" by Johnny Badhair of the Whisper Lake Gazette. Sure, it's only a few paragraphs long but the core idea of a "survival guide" for survivors of a zombie apocalypse just hits too close to home.

I love it, if for nothing else, for the painful minutia he goes into on the intricacies of zombie behavior and logical methods for countering the hordes of undead.

If you hate the book, you'll certainly hate the movie
