Overview

Battle Royale meets Return of the Living Dead in this post-apocalyptic action adventure

Twenty people wake to find themselves in a boarded-up building in the middle of the zombie wasteland. They soon realize they have been chosen as contestants on a popular reality show called Zombie Survival. Each contestant is given a backpack of supplies and a unique weapon. Their goal: be the first to make it through the zombie-plagued city to the pick-up zone alive. But because there's only one seat available on the helicopter, the contestants not only have to fight off the hordes of the living dead, they must also fight each other.
Zombies and Shit is Mellick's craziest book to date. A campy, trashy, punk rock gore fest that is as funny as it is brutal, as sad as it is strange. An edge-of-your-seat thrill ride that twists the zombie genre into something you've never seen before.

    Awesome book definitely worth the read.

    Don't let the title throw you, this was definitely a well written book with some great characters, twists, and some off the wall stuff that just makes it interesting.

    Can you make it to the helicopter?

    Carlton Mellick's Zombies novel is perhaps one of the best zombie novels I've read in a long time. In Neo New York, people are safe from the zombie outbreak that consumes most of the world, but this is no charming society of people working together for the common good. Nope, society has segregated itself into different classes and living conditions. Copper are the "riff-raff", and then Silver, Gold, and ultimately Platinum are the classes on the island. Copper is not allowed to come into the higher class levels as they are undesirable, the poor.
    However, the rich folks in Platinum need their entertainment, so Zombie Survival is born. Pit 20 copper residents (usually against their will) in a race against each other (and the zombie horde) to see who can be the first to get to a helicopter pad and off the island in order to be elevated to Silver status. Each person is given a weapon and are left to go at it, fighting zombies as well as each other.
    Zombies is fun from the onset, never allowing the action to wane. Mellick also shows a very deft touch in giving us the back story for the 20 participants and keeping up with all of them without ever bogging down. It's a joyride! Plus, as an added bonus, there's a special appearance from a 1980's tv icon (no spoilers, but reader's of Mellick's Satan Burger will not be surprised). I've read the majority of Mellick's work, and this is one of the best, great for fans of Bizarro fiction and Apocalyptic/Zombie genre fiction as well.

    Despite what the cover implies, this book was very well written,

    Despite what the cover implies, this book was very well written, sort of a survivor with zombies and an Apocalypse. Of Carlton Mellick's books this one does the best building up the characters. As with all his books I wish it was 50-100 pages longer .

    Definitely recommend for zombie fans.

    Different take on a zombie novel; I really enjoyed it. A little on the sick side, so not for the faint of heart, but very entertaining and original.
