    Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Plot/Story: I really enjoyed the plot. I like the idea that these zombies could not be killed by simply shooting them in the head. It was fun…in a horror sort of way. I will not say it was fast paced because it did take it’s time to getting to the zombie part. But, I was okay with that because the author was just building the scene and showing how all these people played a part in the end of the world. Everyon Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Plot/Story: I really enjoyed the plot.

I will not say it was fast paced because it did take it’s time to getting to the zombie part. But, I was okay with that because the author was just building the scene and showing how all these people played a part in the end of the world. Everyone had their valid reasons of why they participated and I loved it. Characters: I felt like we got more of a sense of who Ian was more than anyone else. He seemed to be the main character in a story that had several main characters. He was also my favorite character from them all. I seemed to connect with him better than the rest. Romance/Kills: There was no romance, at least not an obvious one. I felt like there was a budding romance between a few characters (Ian and Hannah), but nothing outwardly forward. As far as kills…it’s a zombie book, the end of the world. There are a million bloody kills. The descriptions of some of the killings were rather brutal and enjoyable to my horror loving heart. Writing: The writing was fair. I feel like the novel could use a few more look throws for grammatical and spelling errors. I did notice a lot of words that were missing a few letters and a few places where the word was missing completely or there were extra words. There was also an issue with switching the perspective of the story. I had a hard time keeping up with which character’s POV I was reading from. This could be a mistake of my own as I sometimes don’t even pay attention to the title of chapters half the time. But even when I did remember to read the chapter title to see whose POV I was reading from, I still got a little confused. Beginning: The beginning was slow going and at one point I was a little bored. But once you get to the meaty part of the story, you understand the purpose of the slow beginning. Ending: I enjoyed the ending. I felt like there was enough closure to end the book, but open enough to continue on to the next book. Cover Art: The cover is simple and tells a story. It’s the picture of a world at its end and that is exactly what this book is about. Blurb: The blurb is right to the point of the story. It doesn’t prepare you for the gore that riddles this book, which is great. You can also read this review at The Reading Bud.

    This book is one of the best zombie apocalypse books that I have read to date. I started reading it on the 26th of August and it took me two days to finish it. The characters throughout the story grabbed my attention from the beginning and I just could not put it down. It starts out with different citizens throughout the city doing odd jobs in several locations.

It starts out with different citizens throughout the city doing odd jobs in several locations. Some sort of spy type program designed to spy on people, or at least that is what you think at the beginning. You then discover it was a set up for a more sinister plan than anyone could imagine. The only ones who do not get infected is the one's who helped do the jobs, but this book even makes you think if they will survive. Zombies come to life after some time and these survivors have to figure out ways to survive. It is not an easy task. A lot of obstacles emerge in their paths, but they are determined to survive. I really cannot say much more as otherwise I might give away the whole story, but I will say that everyone should read this book. Just fascinating, and the author has done such a good job at keeping the plot going. If you are a zombie buff, conspiracy theorist, or whatever may be the case grab a copy of this book, you will not be disappointed.

    *I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book* This zombie book is not like most zombie books. The zombies are not easily killed and are actually kind of smart. I liked how the author told how each character contributed to the apocalypse in their own way. The descriptions are quite vivid and really pull you into the story. I also liked how the book had an actual conclusion but left room so that the author could easily add a sequel to it.

    Amazing zombie story. Scary, but not over done, that would stop you from reading. Appreciate getting a free copy to review. You just want to sit and do nothing else but read until you're done

    Zilla is plotting the end of the world. He needs other people to help him accomplish this. It isn't long before he has a group of loyal followers. They all have their own job to do. Ian, for instance, has been going to several buildings that belong to the government and justice departments to plant listening devices. At least, that is what he thinks they are. It turns out that these devises release a deadly virus that turns humanity into the walking dead. Zilla rewards his followers with an anti Zilla is plotting the end of the world. He needs other people to help him accomplish this. It isn't long before he has a group of loyal followers. They all have their own job to do. Ian, for instance, has been going to several buildings that belong to the government and justice departments to plant listening devices. At least, that is what he thinks they are. It turns out that these devises release a deadly virus that turns humanity into the walking dead. Zilla rewards his followers with an antidote so that they won't get sick. What will the group do when they find out that Zilla made them responsible for the apocalypse? The virus takes over the body of those who are getting sick. Death is inevitable, but their bodies keep going. The virus is using these bodies as a host and will attack the living every chance it gets. These puppets are everywhere and escaping seems impossible. The group hopes that the virus hasn't spread into other parts of the world. With a sailing boat they head out to Cuba, hoping to find refuge there. Is their destination as safe as they think it will be? The group that Zilla has recruited consists of a colorful bunch of people. All members have their own strengths and weaknesses. I loved how they got together and learned how to function as a group of survivors. Their struggles felt so real since they all have to deal with their guilt. Neither of them wants to be a part of world destruction, but they are being dragged into this nonetheless. They believed in the wrong person and are now paying the price. I was hoping for them to find a safe place to live and to find a cure for the virus. Fool's Apocalypse approaches what the end of the world would look like in a unique way. In most stories about zombies the apocalypse just happens without a clear reason why. In Fool's Apocalypse Anderson Atlas explains why the deceased are still stumbling around. I found it refreshing to have a background story. I love to read about conspiracy theories and because of this the story felt more real to me. Anderson Atlas has also included drawings in his story. These pictures made it easy for me to follow the story and they made it come alive in a great way. Fool's Apocalypse is different, original and creepy and it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time the 'fools' were fighting their way to safety.

    Zombie lovers rejoice. I started reading this book with a bit of difficulty but the more I continued to read the more I continued to enjoy it. Don't fret the begging, although it might start off a bit rough for a few characters. I feel that the author knew the personalities he wanted his characters to have but had a little difficulty starting some of them off.

Don't fret the begging, although it might start off a bit rough for a few characters. I feel that the author knew the personalities he wanted his characters to have but had a little difficulty starting some of them off. Again, don't worry they grow throughout the story and they grow well. Something I have a hard time grasping as a writer, the multi-character perspective, Atlas does very well. I was never lost switching between characters and he very cleverly plants his characters into each others story. Mix this along with his character bio pictures and that bit of a rough patch at the beginning is hardly felt. Soon it fades away and evolves into an enjoyable story. The story starts with a master mind coercing several individuals into assisting his sinister plot. Through motivation by means of government dismemberment, bribery and even personal assistance from a fellow hacker. This master mind sets his apocalypse into motion through the means of these individuals all while maintaining his anonymity. The full details of what exactly this master mind set into place still has yet to be unraveled however, his zombies aren't just the run of the mill zombies. They are something different and much more enjoyable. There is something more complex about these zombies than the average ankle dragger. Atlas also did some master mind work himself with his world building. There are specific details that I took the liberty to look up while reading the book and found that some of the world he describes, actually exists. This made the apocalypse from Atlas feel a lot more personal and realistic. Last but not least was the enjoyment that I read through as Atlas's comfort and confidence grew. Finally his characters were becoming part of a story. An interesting story of survival and suspense. Finally as the pages dwindle down your hit in the gut with a sucker punch. Being a zombie/apoc genre fan, I enjoyed this book and recommend it. I feel the 2nd book will be even stronger than the first with the direction it is going.

Now are spared the virus, but not the aftermath of the part's they played. Survival is this apocalyptic world is the first priority. But survival isn't made easy when the dead come back to life especially if they're puppets made to do a mastermind bidding. Normally, I stay away from zombie novels. They just don't happen to be my normal Forte. But, if written right, they can be great. This one happened to be quite interesting. One of the things I enjoyed the most was the set up. Through multiple characters, it showed how each of these characters were connected and manipulated my Zilla to help him in his evil plan. The storyline was well thought out as well as nicely executed. After a bit of a slow set up to lay the foundation, is nicely paced, with a great deal of action, suspense, conspiracy theories, religion and corruption. There are some nice twists and turns with quite the reveal at the end that makes you look forward to the next installment. The only thing I personally didn't care for were the illustrations in the book, which I felt detracted from it. But that is my own personal opinion, and most likely is not shared by others. Overall, a book that has a feel not unlike the ever popular 'Walking Dead'. I was approached by the author to review this book. All reviews are based solely on my humble non important opinion.

    I have read one other book by the same author and I enjoyed that very much. Naturally, I was super excited to get my hands on another potentially awesome book so I had high expectations. First, I want to say that it isn’t that my expectations weren’t met, just that this books wasn’t what I expected. Let me explain. The first book I read by Atlas was a children’s book about a boy who was a paraplegic and took a really riveting and entertaining adventure. It was fantastic and incredibly bold so I I have read one other book by the same author and I enjoyed that very much. Naturally, I was super excited to get my hands on another potentially awesome book so I had high expectations. First, I want to say that it isn’t that my expectations weren’t met, just that this books wasn’t what I expected. Let me explain. The first book I read by Atlas was a children’s book about a boy who was a paraplegic and took a really riveting and entertaining adventure. It was fantastic and incredibly bold so I thought, with a title like The 6th Horseman, that I was getting myself into another fantasy novel. I was a little wrong. This book is not a children’s book and it is not about fantasy. Actually, it’s about a zombie apocalypse. So you see, this book wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t what I expected. On the other hand, the fact that it wasn’t what I expected isn’t why I gave it this rating, and this is where my review comes in. Since this is going to be a fairly detailed review, I’m going to break it down into sections. Plot: I thought the actual storyline was really good. To be completely honest, it was clever and some parts were unexpected. I didn’t know this was going to be a zombie apocalypse and I happen to like zombie books so that surprise actually worked in Atlas’s favor. The way the characters and their stories were interwoven worked really well and I liked that the story was told from different perspectives. The opening was definitely a little vague but I got through it and made it to the ‘meat’ of the book. That’s where things really started to pick up and it was easy reading from there. The ending was fair, not too open ended but with enough closure to not make me angry if there isn’t a second book—which I appreciated very much. Writing: The writing itself cost a star. This is where I make comparisons to Atlas’s first book. It was written very well and had so much depth and description. There was world-building and vivid detail, I could picture everything in the grand size and bright colors they were described but I didn’t get that in this book. I said the beginning was vague but it was also slow—bleeding slow—to the point of boredom. The beginning wasn’t the only vague part. It felt like most of the book was one large guess at what was happening. Everything was insinuated or said without saying. I didn’t exactly understand just what was happening for a good long time—like a hundred pages or so. Now, as a frequent book reviewer, I tend to read plenty of books sometimes two a day. Honestly, it can get ‘grindy’ to the point where I’m just reading to get through the book and post a review, not to actually enjoy it and tell the author what I loved or hated. That being said, I can be a really airheaded reader at times. Reviewer or not, I tend to skim personal info on characters. I just can’t get myself to care about each character’s wavy brown hair or their middle name, or their dog’s name, or how big and beautiful and blue their eyes are. That’s all irrelevant to me. So, in the author’s defense, my own laziness may have confused me. Errors: To be fair, I got a preview copy of the book before editing so I was aware that there would be a certain number of grammatical mistakes. I don’t know if those mistakes were corrected or not but this comment isn’t on a misplaced comma or a misspelled word on page 72 (exaggeration, I don’t remember if there was actually a misspelled word on that page). I’m a really relaxed reader, whether I’m reviewing a self-published self-edited novel or a bestselling novel, I don’t normally care to mention—or even pay much attention to—poor grammar. As long as I know what the author intended to write, I can overlook errors. I just don’t see the point in throwing a hissy fit over a mistake or two that really doesn’t make or break the overall story. In this case, despite being warned of mistakes, I decided to include a section in my review for errors. What I found to be really odd, to the point of distracting, was that Atlas often switched the narration. I don’t mean from character to character, I mean from present tense to past tense. One moment the character would sit down and close his eyes, the next minute the characters’ dialogue would be ‘said’ instead of ‘say’ which would be the correct way to format a present tense novel. It happened enough times that I stopped noticing it and began to question whether it’d been done on purpose or not. Please remember this was BEFORE editing so this very well may have been corrected by now and probably isn’t an issue anymore. Judging from the quality of Atlas’s other book, I wouldn’t be surprised if the finished copy was clean and pristine. My Thoughts: Overall, this is a good book. I would definitely recommend it to other readers whether they like zombies or not. I do think it is unique and I loved how the zombie-like creatures actually evolved as the story progressed. That was cool and certainly original. They were different and I felt like, in a way, they evolved just as the characters did. I liked watching the cast make decisions and see their growth unfold right before me. I felt like the story flowed smoothly—once I got an understanding of it—and that in the end it worked really well. I think this book would be best for readers who like eccentric and unique novels set in a very ‘unoriginal’ event. By ‘unoriginal’ I mean something as common as a zombie apocalypse, because we haven’t heard of that before, right? I don’t mean any offense by that, just that Atlas brought some spice to a very common theme. All in all, I am glad to have read a second book by this author and I wouldn’t be opposed to reading a third. I would recommend this to adult readers who aren’t opposed to a little horror and gore. If you like zombies then this is certainly for you but I think anyone with an interest in science fiction would enjoy it too. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

    Where do I even begin? I have to admit, Zilla's good. Too good. He exposed human weakness, by manipulating that weakness and pretended to make it something great. A lie. An empty lie. The grass isn't always greener on the other side. The 5 survivors can be seen as both victims and villains of their own fate. Wanting to believe the world could be better, stronger. But little did they know what they'd be up against. It's become much worse than what they bargained for. And once the truth came out, Where do I even begin? I have to admit, Zilla's good. Too good.

    I have received the book from the author for a fair review. I was intrigued initially, luckily the book did not disappoint. At the start, you think that these people are fighting the corruption and the bad guys.. the story twist more and more into something sinister. This book has violence, dreams and the sound of dreams popping like popcorns.

Rating: 3.5 stars Synopsis: What would you do if you were dissatisfied with your life? How far would you go? What if you were given the opportunity of a lifetime or the opportunity for revenge? Would you take the opportunity or say no because it sounded too good to be true? The characters in this book must deal with the consequences of the choices they made regarding those opportunities. Ian, Ben, Isabella, Tanis, Hana, Markus. Each made the decision to say yes. Each was as much victim as instigator. The book follows them through New York City and beyond as they deal with death (and zombies) all around them and as they search for survivors of the virus. Follow them as they discover who Zilla really is (I didn’t figure it out until the characters did!) and work their way to the new ‘Eden’. Cover Art: I’m not so keen on this cover, but that is MY personal taste and has nothing to do with the actual drawing. It makes me think more horror than what is really in the book or, at least, more graphic violence. It makes me shiver to look at it. The cover also makes me think ‘sick and twisted.’ And I just realized, that’s a pretty apt description of Zilla. LOL. With that said, I am a fan of Anderson’s art. You should take a look at some of the other drawings he has done! My Thoughts: I typically do not read books with zombies (or zombie-like creatures) in them. In fact, one of the first zombie books I read was by accident. Yes, by accident. This time, it was intentional. But, I must say, it was so much more than a ‘zombie’ book. It was almost as if the zombies were an afterthought. Yes, there were zombies everywhere, and there was interaction with the zombies. But, the main characters fascinated me. I wanted to know what made them tick. Why did they do the things they did? I suppose that if you are a zombie person, the zombies would fascinate you more than the main characters. I did find it intriguing how the zombies evolved over the course of the novel. At first, they were pretty mindless and did what zombies do. Then, you see that they do have intelligence and can learn and set traps. This makes for an interesting spin in the book and has you wondering how much these zombies will learn over time. While I was reading the book, I decided to look up Swindler Cove and some of the other places that are mentioned in the book. I wasn’t sure whether they really existed or not. Well, they do exist. To me, it just made the story that much more real knowing the places really are in New York City and not just in someone’s imagination. P.S. Swindler Cove is definitely worth a look (Sherman Creek Park). And, I am looking forward to reading the sequel! disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    This book is so scary because it could be tomorrow's headlines and because there are Terrorists with these same ambitions.

Head shots don't stop these critters, they've got to be disabled. Broken Legs and Shattered Knees seems most effective. At the end of this first segment in this series, other than the name Zilla, we're not yet aware of who or what (Evil) entity is behind this Apocalypse. I doubt it's just a desire to "Cleanse" the earth and start over with a select few. I hope we don't have a long wait for the next installment. Review by THE HOLEY ONE

Fools' Apocalypse provides the reader with a first-hand account, from multiple perspectives, into the end of civilization as we know it. The author takes the reader down a twisted path of conspiracy theory politics and religious extremism into the quagmire of a world-ending doomsday scenario wherein each of the main characters plays their own unwitting part in bringing civilization to its knees. The novel draws upon the themes of The Walking Dead, focusing on the elements of survival in a post-apocalyptic setting, as the characters come to terms with the cumulative effects of their individual actions. While I enjoy a good apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic yarn, I had a hard time staying in the narrative due to the author's use of a comic-book-like writing style--again reminiscent of The Walking Dead--which is decidedly outside my normal reading range. Overall, I enjoyed Fools' Apocalypse and would recommend it to those who enjoy The Walking Dead.

The Mystery man Zilla, is the lead anarchist the brains behind the plan, a powerful wealthy man who wants to bring about real change.Ian Gladstone was chosen due to his mom being a political activist she had taught her son well.Sadly due to mounting pressure from the political arena and media, she had killed herself, rather than spending the rest of her life in prison. Ian was but one cog in the giant wheel of cogs.Each commissioned to do a job that was specific to their skill set.No one was aware of the other cogs nor could they see the result of their actions, a small part played in concert to form the bigger picture. Each cog was given a syringe to inoculate themselves from the wrath of what they had unleashed upon the unsuspecting world.Little by little they found each other and were making their way to the only safe haven they were aware of they had to make their way to Cuba. A EMP went off and crippled the grid the news has said it was a terrorist attack. The dead "Puppets" are slow yes, but they are able to reason and deduce simple plans to get at the food they crave. Our not so merry band of survivors are trying to survive, to get to Cuba.Will they make it? Will they discover who Zilla really is. Pick up the book to find out more. I was an ARC reader for this book, I had not read any of his work prior to this one. I look forward to reading more from Mr. Atlas.

    This book has it all, conspiracy, politics, greed and religion! You can’t have one without the other right? It is also loaded with humor, spunky characters, blood, death and zombies. When the action comes it will have you on the edge of your seat and maybe even falling off. I really liked how there are multiple main characters with their own personal back story, sense of humor and personalities. All these things make each character well rounded and easy to follow.

The style of writing isn’t something I am used to; switching point of view characters in the style of George RR Martin. I am giving the book “ Fools Apocalypse” a rating of 4 out of 5, because it was slow to start. I am so happy I hung in there because I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reading more work from this author.

    the most gripping nihilistic "end times" vision that I have read, totally believable and set in the not so distance future of what will become hell on earth. I loved it you will too get your copy today. Brilliantly written by Anderson Atlas a masterpiece that unfolds like total horror.

    All in all, it was a good book. It was very original. Although, disagree with certain portions of it, I am still going to read the sequel.
