I’m in the middle of a zombie fight but do not worry. I have the time to take a minute and write about my day. It started out alright, coffee, dog snuggles, I ate an MRE. But then I made the mistake of going outside. In the big city I live in, there were about three undead walking down the street. I don’t know how I survived checking the mail.
That’s sarcasm, not a quote. There were some good tactical ideas for surviving the zombie apocalypse from a soldier who gets a heads up that shit is about to go down and holes up in his convenient fortress of a house. It’s written journal style like above, which isn’t a bad style IF you have a very interesting personality. Which unfortunately, our protagonist does not. Luckily for him, he seems to have practically zero problems handling every zombie encounter. In fact, all the characters are fairly one dimensional.
It wasn’t a bad book but it certainly didn’t grip the reader. If you want some ideas for how to survive zombies, you can probably pick up a thing or two. But of course, the part about medications was absolutely wrong so you can disregard it. The actual names of antibiotics do not all end in -biotic, like the author seems to think. Making it much harder to snag what you’re looking for if you come across a pharmacy to loot when the world goes to Hell in a hand basket. Penicillin, amoxicillin, cephalexin, clindamycin, clarithromycin, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, to name a few. Now I have contributed to your knowledge to survive the end game. You’re welcome.
