    "Well, maybe World War Z can be considered one of the best books about zombies or maybe among one of the best but Zombie Fallout is not even good. It is mediocre if I'm being generous but calling it atrocious is a far better description, to be honest. It is not a pleasantly elaborated story, it is not captivating by any means and somehow manages to make you bored. Honestly, a good zombie book should be the very opposite of that. "

    "Ashes is a pretty cool zombie book, in the realm of Evil Dead and George Romero type stuff. I felt like it was definitely inspired by some old Romero books!"

    "As someone who loves zombie stories, Creeper Rise (After Everything Else Series) pleasantly surprised me. The book does not have many reviews on Amazon so I feel it is an underrated gem. At only 9 dollars on Amazon, you're getting your money's worth with this book."

    "I wanted the best zombie books ever written. I found warm bodies, and it has been a great book, dealing with a zombie that wants to care for a person instead of eat them."

    "This is anything but the best zombie book. You want World War Z for that, this one is YA and not even good YA at that. Stick with more mature things."

    "The Rising is a book that I recommend to those that love books that pertain to zombies. I found the characters to be quite memorable and while the ending was worse than I had hoped for, I still found myself quite engaged while reading this book due to the very interesting story line and setting.

    "Slow Burn: Infected is a thrilling book. I can't recommend this book and the whole series it belongs to enough. I wouldn't call it the best zombie book ever but surely it's close."

    "If new age, social media and politically adapted vampires, zombies and the like seem like an interesting story, you will love Mira Grant's account of this modern day, critically acclaimed narrative. Seemingly almost true (but we know it isn't, right), the novel spins a dynamic tale of the afterworld set in the geekish current day environment. Very fun read."

    "We Got Zombies On The Lawn Again, Ma is by no means a scary or dramatic work, so don't go into this thinking it's going to be one of the best zombie books ever written. Spoiler: it's not. That much is probably obvious from the book's title and cover image. Still, Donnie Smith presents a lighthearted read that's mildly amusing."
