Fear the undead that are not dead.
Fools' Apocalypse is full of metaphor and philosophy cloaked in action, horror and mystery. This book shows readers, through story, the danger of socialist extremes and conspiracy. It's also fun as all classic American journeys are.
Manipulated to kill, sick with lies–the corpses move against the Fools. It quickly becomes apparent that the undead are more than rotting bodies. They’re puppets for something dark and desperate and otherworldly. They are Zilla’s children.
Zilla used extreme socialist ideology to motivate his holy army to destroy humanity. Pitting passion against reason was so effective. His soldiers had no idea what they were doing. How could they be so naive? They didn’t want the end to come, they didn’t want to have to fight their neighbors, themselves or the storm of guilt that pummeled them.
Those that survive are spared the virus, but not death. In order to live they’ll fight, bleed, and steal. Slick with blood and ash, every step becomes harder than the last.

Fools Apocalypse by Anderson Atlas is a science fiction fantasy apocalypse novel set in a sort of zombie apocalyptic world. In this world, the undead corpses are not just mindless killing machines, but zombies that are being controlled by an evil known only as Zilla who desires to cleanse the world of the unworthy. Will humanity survive? Fools Apocalypse by Anderson Atlas was a novel that reminded me a lot of the TV show The Walking Dead, yet it was also unique from it. The similarities that struck me the most was that the focus was not exactly on the zombies themselves, but instead the people who were trying to survive in these dark new worlds. The main difference; however is that unlike the Walking Dead a headshot does not guarantee you a fully dead zombie and that Zilla is controlling the zombies with the purpose of cleansing the world. I found the concept of the zombies being controlled and having a purpose to be an interesting new idea that I have not seen used in any other zombie book, movie, or TV show. I only with that this book had explored Zilla more, but I guess that just leaves me waiting on baited breath for book two!
