    1. Okay, full review, no spoilers. "Zombie Apocalypse 2012: A Political Horror Story"(ZA 2012), by Ian McClellan.The moment I started reading ZA 2012, I was struck by the author's "voice". McClellan is unique in his gnarly prose, but also bears similarities to Carl Hiaasen and Tim Dorsey in his ability to intermingle political satire and twisted humor in the skein of his story.The protagonist, (whose name does not really matter, according to the protagonist)is thrust into the Zombie Apocalypse with [...]


    2. I thought this book was fantastic. Incredibly funny and smart. Here's the thing, I'm not into the zombie craze--at all. I picked it up on a friend's suggestion. I loved it, however, and read it in an afternoon. How is this possible? First of all, I laughed out loud on more than one occasion. Second, the zombies are hardly the primary focus of the story. Imagine a zombie episode of The Simpsons (ok, there might be one, but I haven't watched TV in forever--don't judge me). But, what I mean is, it' [...]


    3. Ian McClellan has such a witty writing style, and the main character, Lance, is hilarious. He’s an unemployed factory worker who struggles to survive the wrath of the zombies. Unfortunately for Lance, the people who live in his town aren’t terribly intelligent. The first day of the zombie apocalypse is a rough one for Lance. His wife leaves him, the boy next door attacks him, his truck is stolen, and he becomes deathly ill. Not a great day for Lance! On the bright side, he gets to team up wi [...]


    4. When I purchased this book you heard the word 'sequester' no less than 10,000 times on all the networks, so I figured hey this would be a good weekend read. And I was right, this was a great read. This book made me laugh out loud several times. Although, the humour didn't make this book any less serious as to what would happen if the dead started to rise and we had a budget crises (that simply didn't matter anymore). What I appreciated the most in the story is that the narrator is a regular guy [...]


    5. First paragraph: It didn't happen overnight like it did in The Dawn of the Dead. Nobody got off work, went home, fell asleep, and woke up to a neighborhood full of zombies, but we were all caught off guard just the same. Of course, in the grand scheme of things, the week or so that it took for the world as we all knew it to end wasn't a lot of time. Still, no one really saw it happening as it did, but we might have if we'd been paying attention.An average American, Lance the exterminator, tries [...]


    6. To be honest, I'm all zombied out. I wasn't looking for yet another zombie book but this one caught my eye and I'm glad it did. It was engaging from the first page and held my interest all the way through. It's a quick read and quite funny along the way. I'll give it 4 stars although if I were a liberal, I'd probably give it 5 starsad it to see what I mean lol.



    7. This was a quick, fun read about a guy named Lance trying to make it to the CDC while making hilarious social and political commentary.


    8. I love an interesting take on the usual zombie fare and I’ll be the first to read or watch anything in hopes of finding those little differences that make me sit back and go, “Oh… that’s new.” Zombie/Apocalypse 2012: A Political Horror Story is a mouthful of a title, but a surprisingly quick read. It delivers some interesting zombies, but ultimately falls short of being considered “a political horror story” in my mind.We’re introduced to a narrator named Lance, who rightfully ass [...]


    9. Review first appeared on my blog: Book Addict 24-7I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest reviewZombie Apocalypse 2012: A Political Horror Story by Ian McClellan is a very clever adult fiction novel that satirizes the current issues found in the U.S. government. Witty, intelligent, and all around entertaining, this zombie read is a great commentary on today’s society, plus, it has zombies—which is awesome. Lance, the protagonist, isn’t your typical hero. He’s imperfec [...]


    10. From AntonySimpson:McClellan shows great promise with his first book: Zombie/Apocalypse 2012: A Political Horror Story. It’s a story about a zombie apocalypse in the USA, told through the perspective of an ordinary guy. The guy in question is Lance, an unemployed factory worker who feels the media and politicians are all failing to take control of the situation and work together to resolve it.McClellan says about his book:“My book is a funny and entertaining look at the politics of the zombi [...]


    11. I'd say 3.5 stars. "The South will rise again," indeed. There's really nothing new here as far as the zombie genre goes, but that's also what's likable about it. In many zombie stories that are supposedly based on present-day reality, I always find it a little hard to believe that if the undead started rising we would call them anything but zombies. The believability of everything that happens in this story is what I like about it. The writing is pretty simple but with a good voice as we follow [...]


    12. One of the aspects of the horror genre that I enjoy the most is its ability to question social constructs and norms. Zombies provide for this perhaps better than any other monster and that is where we find McClellan's Zombie Apocalypse 2012. It is not overly political or preachy, rather simply explores the idea of how politics might effect the average person during an undead apocalypse. It was a well written, fast read, that regardless of your political leanings, I would recommend to anyone look [...]


    13. Overall, the story was really great. I liked the real type life of aspects concerning the rich people and misinformed media. The one thing I really had a problem with was the ending, it was kind of just there and over, I think I was looking for more of a build up to it rather than just a stop. Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.


    14. I was introduced to this book through a zombie related site, and I'm glad I picked it up. I laughed from start to finish. There's not a lot of gore like with most of the popular zombie books out today. This is more of a political statement on the way the U.S. is today and the people who run it. A spot on commentary of the state of our nation.Please note: if you are easily offended, do not read. If you don't understand satire, don't read.


    15. Not great but not bad. There were a couple of things that would probably happen in real life, like the media and politicians playing the blame game or the misinformation being spread or the rich getting preferential treatment. The ending could have been better, I didn't really get a sense of him getting to that point yet, it just sort of happened, could have been built up to better. Also seemed like everyone was a redneck/hillbilly.


    16. The story in itself was pretty good. Although, I think the book could have spent a bit more time with an editor (if you're interested we could make a blue collar to blue collar deal here). I had a hard time with the dialogue at times, it seemed a bit cliche and then I read you were from Ireland, so that might be why it didn't flow as naturally (I was raised in Texas), but I dont mean this offensively. Anyway, look forward to the next one, keep it up man.


    17. I'm not sure whether this book read longer, or I assumed it to be shorter. Either way, it took me longer to read than I anticipated. While the book was funny, I wanted more sociopolitical commentary than typical zombie narrative. It was a pretty standard zombie tale, better than some, worse than others. (Probably more a rounded up 2.5 than a 3.) And why no love for Jordan Hare?


    18. I'm not a fan of zombie books, or zombies in general, but I did enjoy this book to some extent. I probably won't read it again. Once was enough.FTC - I received this book for free through giveaway.


    19. Some more editing would have been a good idea but overall the book was fun and kept my interest from start to finish. The ending felt a bit rushed and unfinished but I did enjoy the book and would recommend it to other zombie/apocalyptic book lovers.
