Not only that coffee turns most of us from almost-zombies in the morning to fully functioning grown-ups, but it can also be used as September 19, Grab a Pair! June 5, March 27, My reviews rarely tell you what the book is about, as you can read that in the book description. One thing my reviews DO contain So here goes. I walked into this book with both eyes peeled and let me say that I could not find a single flaw.
Mr Johnson cared enough about his readers to produce a very clean product, and that deserves mention. I hope he gives me a heads-up. View 2 comments. Jun 17, Lisa rated it liked it. Yeah, yeah I hate to admit this, but I think I actually lost some brain cells reading this book. I mean its hilarious, think The Hangover with Zombies, yet even more ridiculous. Possibly that new movie coming out "This is the End" I can't say I liked any of the characters, they were all horrible people I am not saying they were badly written, but down right horrible people and yet the scary thing is that in a Zombie apocalypse they would be the ones to actually survive, now wouldn't they.
In Yeah, yeah In all seriousness Oct 29, Rebecca Trotter rated it it was amazing Shelves: zombies , apocalyptic. Up until Chapter 7, I was giving Dead Drunk two stars: the writing was great, but nothing zombie-like was happening and the racism was too overdone. The last 10 to 15 percent, of Dead Drunk , earned the five star rating. If there is ever a s Up until Chapter 7, I was giving Dead Drunk two stars: the writing was great, but nothing zombie-like was happening and the racism was too overdone.
If there is ever a sequel, I want to read it as soon as it comes out. Feb 19, Adrian Bowman rated it did not like it. I couldn't get behind the characters. They where nicely fleshed out but I personally found them to be a pretty detestable bunch in the way they treated each other. It may have gotten better later, but I gave up after 5 chapters. I can't fault the writing style in any way. Don't take this too harshly though. You might enjoy it. It just wasn't for me.
Sep 10, hIpnoticraQs rated it it was ok. Praise The Lord, I'm finished. This book could have been great had someone else written it. The only reason I gave a two star rating instead of one is because of the lack of grammatical errors. Apr 29, Elizabeth rated it really liked it Shelves: apocalyptic , faves , horror , zombie , humour.
A hidden gem. One of the more entertaining zombie books I've read in a while - the characters pretty much leap off the page, grab you by the throat and then crack open a beer. Apr 11, Mack Moyer rated it really liked it. Dead Drunk gives us something the zombie genre severely lacks: Fun. Sadly, for me and my friends, this is a very real possibility with or without the apocalypse. Charlie is their de facto leader. My kind of guy. The shit talking between zombie attacks is the best part.
I found myself more interested in their juvenile insults than I did their battles with the undead, although the action is funny as well because these guys suck at it. The cop is a bad shot. The former MMA fighter has a beer gut and almost gets eaten alive while passed out in the back yard after dropping a deuce.
And, oh yeah, he wakes up with a boner, because of course he does. These fellas are not heroes.
When they see a child stuck in a tree, besieged by the undead, it takes them three days to save him, and even then just barely. Some readers will be offended by the banter and some uncomfortable racial stereotypes. May 08, Lee French rated it really liked it. Everything that this book promises is delivered. It's a zombie novel about a guy I wound up rooting for even though he's a loser. The humor is lowbrow, the beer flows freely, and the silliness quotient is high literally, part of the time.
In many places, this book is entirely preposterous, and that's exactly how it should be. I found myself laughing out loud at several points. Although the antics of the survivors can be over the top at times, it's still hilarious. Be forewarned there is a lot o Everything that this book promises is delivered. Be forewarned there is a lot of drunk guy humor, guy sex humor, and some drug humor. These guys drink, use assorted drugs, and talk about sex and genitalia a lot.
A few scenes did bother me a tiny bit, ones depicting mildly disturbing violence. Obviously, there are zombies, so there's violence, and that's not what I'm referring to. The survivors engage in and discuss some morally questionable activities that sensitive readers will blanch at. Their choices aren't always the 'heroic' ones, which is probably the reason any of them manage to survive. The only things I actually disliked about this book were some odd scenes out, all of them jam-packed with backstory.
One of them even confused me, because I had no idea what was going on until the end of the chapter. Aside from the one major hiccup, the tale is woven well and the characters are well done. I recommend this for people who like Shaun of the Dead and similar stories. Jun 06, Michael Flanagan rated it really liked it Shelves: zombies.
What do you do when it's the end of the world and everyone around you is trying to eat you? Easy get drunk and throw stuff at the Zombies, from a safe distance that is. A group of middle aged blokes wake up after a drunken sham of a bucks party to the end of the world.

As they slowly start to die off, picked off by Zombies, suicide and just plain bad luck. The survivors are given a g What do you do when it's the end of the world and everyone around you is trying to eat you?

It is obvious that they are all going to come together at the end of the book but I feel that the book could have been so much better if these arcs were fleshed out more.
Overall an above average read in the saturated genre that is Zombie Apocalypse. May 21, Erin added it Shelves: did-not-finish , zombies-scream-brains. Did Not Finish. I listened to an hour yes, an hour exactly of this piece of crap before giving up. Maybe it would have been actually funny if I had read it instead of listening to the audiobook?
Not sure. The entire first hour of the audiobook so however long that translates to in pages of the physical book , was purely The Hangover and I just couldn't stomach any more. I hated The Hangover and yes, I forced myself to watch all three. None of the characters were even remotely likable. And it was such a rip off of The Hangover, that it's not even funny.
So I give up.
I generally never give up. But this one? I just can't even make it to the zombie part.
Feb 08, Sara rated it liked it. I have to admit that 3 stars is probably being a bit generous, but I added points for effort. This book is basically centered around a bunch of annoying adult frat-boy types, lock-stepped in their arrested development. Yay for zombie apocalypse; boo for having to spend it with these douche bags. I listened to the audiobook which only worsened my experience as the voice for one of the characters sounded just like Beavis from "Beavis and Butthead".
Add to this another character with some form of m I have to admit that 3 stars is probably being a bit generous, but I added points for effort. Add to this another character with some form of magical immunity secondary to eating too much beef jerky and it makes for an underwhelming experience. Apr 15, Jacob Donley rated it it was amazing Shelves: reviews. I had the good fortune of knowing Richard Johnson for the short time that I attended Monmouth College. At times, I had to put the book down because I couldn't hold my tablet straight enough to read as my laughter increased.
While the book was admittedly funny, there are tender moments and sad instances in the book that pull at the heartstrings as well. I would fully welcome anyone who enjoys a good zombie book I had the good fortune of knowing Richard Johnson for the short time that I attended Monmouth College. I would fully welcome anyone who enjoys a good zombie book mixed with comedy full of insults and razzing to get their copy as fast as possible.
I definitely give this book two thumbs up and enjoyed every minute. Jul 05, danielle rated it it was amazing. This is the type of book that people will look at the title and cover, and either love the concept and buy it, or think it's silly and pass on it. If you pass on this one, you will miss a great story! I loved it! Action, humor, awesome characters These men are more like your bumbling, average joe neighbors, than the military trained, knowledgable characters in other zombie apocalypse books. But ut works within this story, and makes for a "reallistic" read.

Read this book! You wont be disappointed- its funny, fairly well written, and action packed! Oct 21, Shawn Thornton rated it liked it.
This book could have been a 4 or a 2. I'm giving it 3 because my concentration levels were awful while I was reading it. Not the book or the author s fault but I'm just a a little sick of zombies at the moment. I'm suffering from zombie overload. I need a break from zombies for a while. Now that I've stated this there will probably be a real zombie outbreak. If this happens I will take the advice from this novel and lock my doors and very very drunk and read.
Just not about zombies!!!!! Nov 17, Audiobook Jungle rated it it was amazing. Jul 16, Keith Schincke rated it really liked it. This was an awesome book. The zombies are fast. The best friends are cut throat with their jokes. The world building helped fill out the story without taking away too much attention from the main set of characters. I found it very enjoyable to read. View 1 comment. Apr 29, Brian rated it it was amazing. A different take on the zombie apocalypse genre, but so good. This book is fun to read and absolutely hysterical. Can't wait for more like this. Jul 01, Jill James rated it really liked it.
A good time was had by all during the zombie apocalypse. May 01, Brandon Carmody rated it it was amazing. This book is Tucker Max meets a good zombie book!! I couldn't put it down! Character development was good, and the story moved quickly, but effectively.
Oliver Beer. I cannot wait to see what the author will do next! Judging by the feedback from readers, the series works on both those levels. The cop is a bad shot. The zombies are fast. It's a real page turner with plenty of twists and turns that will keep you reading late into the night. I found myself laughing out loud at several points.
Sep 14, Amanda Yeoman rated it it was amazing. This was an incredibly well written - literally laughing out loud on every page - never ending fun and excitement - drug in the form of a book. I cannot wait to see what the author will do next! Jul 09, Ada Taropa rated it really liked it. I wish I had the 4.
