Remember how I didn't publish my list of books because I didn't want students to influenced by what they thought I might/not like? Well because of that experiment I ended up with 2 sets of 2 books.
The first is book #33. The other, I have been told, will make me cry so hard I need to wait until I have a good solid two days to leave this world and feel emotions that glow brighter than the horrible neon-bright fashions that are being revived from 1980s.
Before I go further, let me remind you this book is coming after I read Ron Burgundy and Tina Fey.
Would you like to be at bat in that spot in that line up? Tough.
Three pages into the book I knew EXACTLY why two students assigned me this book.
"The Zombie Survival Guide" is freaking brilliant.
And funny. And important.
This book is a delightful reminder of the imaginative science in science-fiction.
Now I know what causes Zombies, what kinds of Zombies there ARE, and where I should NOT go in case of an apocalypse (hospital! police! first floor entry!) I know what to do, what to pack, what to really look out for.
Example. In a Zombie apocalypse, should I find myself in a boat, I will have my survival pack with me and will DEFINITELY remember that Zombies don't need air so they can jump up from under the water.
Knowing this gives me POWER, so I station people in rotating watch over the anchor to make sure zombies don't climb up anchor and kill me or Zombify me.
