You the reader realize people are turning into zombies because you saw it on TV news. Zombies apparently have taken over much of Manhattan. You ride a train to Brooklyn you observe a zombie in your car dining on some poor victim. You must choose between intervening or move your butt to another car. Your adventures in the Zombie Apocalypse has begun as the reader makes moral choices in which being a hero may have the second order effect of becoming a zombie (remember as my nephew once told me John Wayne dies at the Alamo). Staten Island is rumored to be a non zombie zone, but to get there means riding the ferry where zombies seem to patrol the Manhattan side. Do you remain behind to help humanity fight the zombies, help the zombies raise awareness that they have rights too or do you move your butt to the free zone?

This is an adult version of the Choose Your Own Adventures (Max Brallier includes profanities and vivid gore especially if you choose wrong). Fans of this genre will enjoy Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse? there are numerous possibilities so if you end up zombie food, you can always back track and start either over in entirety or just take the other fork. Though zombies have starred in this genre (see Anson Montgomery's Your Grandparents Are Zombies that targets young readers) this is lighthearted escapist fun for adults only.

I was expecting a zany evil deadish choose your own adventure, but the book didn't really deliver. First time through, I ended up at "The End" instead of one of the many "An End" and was underwhelmed. I haven't felt the urge to go back through and see what the other endings were like. The zombies vs. comic com cosplayers segment was funny, but not worth the price of the book. Diehard zombie fans might enjoy this more than I did.

    LAME!!!!!

    THE REVIEWS THAT THIS BOOK GOT HAS TO BE THE AUTHORS FRIENDS AND/OR FAMILY MEMBERS. I REMEMBER THESE TYPE OF BOOKS AS A TEENAGER AND I LOVED THEM. I READ THIS BOOK AND REMADE SEVERAL CHOICES. I ENDED UP DIEING ONCE. I LIVED SEVERAL TIMES, BUT IT JUST SAID "AN END". IT DIDN'T REALLY GET YOU ANY WHERE. IT JUST STOPS.....THEN YOU GO AND TRY ANOTHER ROUTE. I GOT RESCUED 15 MINUTES INTO THE BOOK BY A MILITARY HELICOPTER AND I GOT "AN END" IT WAS REALLY CRAPPY. I WAS EXCITED WHEN I FIRST BOUGHT THE BOOK, BUT ITS CRAP.DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!! I COULD GO BACK AND MAKE ANOTHER CHOICE, BUT IT'LL JUST SAY "AN END" FIVE MORE MINUTES INTO IT.
