    1. Over my semi hiatus from and book blogging while I tried to adjust to a crazy new reality in my real life, I found myself really hard pressed to find time to devote to full novels After a week or so of struggling to feel like I was keeping pace with larger books, I sought out something I could read in an afternoon and settled on the ever reliable zombie fare Always a page turner, right I can happily say that this fit the bill and ended up being exactly what I expected I devoured this in a couple [...]

    2. Jenny came home last week with a new zombie book for me She said she considered it the me equivalent of flowers Isn t that nice Zombies is crafted as a journal that a scientist birder keeps during his time trying to survive a food additive driven perhaps zombie outbreak He has both narrative and sketches in the book, along with an involving tale Some thoughts It s a lovely book, with great zombie art and character sketches The writing is crisp and economical, but tells the story well through sho [...]

    3. The story here is nothing much Roff basically follows the rules of Max Brooks zombieverse, with the admittedly creepy addition of the infection initially arising from chemically enhanced food The ending is annoyingly abrupt, especially as it denies the reader any information about how the rest of society survived, despite it being clear from the introduction that it did The story is like a small zombie aperitif brains on a cracker without any main course.The art, however, is fantastic It s evoca [...]

    4. Zombies A Record of the Year of Infection is a mix of brief journal entries and very detailed ink drawings.The reason for the detailed, comic book like drawings is that the writer is also a birder But, honestly, they don t really fit feel real for what we re supposed to be reading However, putting that aside and just looking at them they are well done While it s a decent entry into the zombie genre, it doesn t really stand out in any appreciable way It is easy to read I actually read it in less [...]

    5. Let s face it while zombies are awesome, they can be a little overdone Many movies literature feature the same clich s stereotypes of zombies, so it s nice that lately there are quite a few books movies that are breaking the mold, so to speak Zombies is quite literally, a picture diary about zombies, written by one of the last human survivors a doctor named Twombly who is lucky enough to have been in a relatively well enough stocked office lab setting to last him a few days When the food begins [...]

    6. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME What a great graphic novel by Don Roff I love the theme of using an actual running journal with sketches from a character right in the middle of infection The illustrations by Chris Lane are the icing on the cake, perfectly depicting the gruesome outbreak.

    7. Loved it I think the idea of tainted food makes the most sense with the Zombie Apocalypse Also loved the little Canada insert

    8. Good short story, some great drawingsrfect for a Halloween read for fans of the Walking Dead and the side mini webisodes.

    9. It s a picture book About zombies.Okay, maybe picture book is a bit of a stretch Perhaps graphic novel would be better The pictures are excellent, though, and vivid and detailed It s probably not a good idea, though, to read this while eating.The detailing is spectacular, and I particularly enjoyed the way that Roff or Twombly, in this case attempted to put a scientific, medical analysis onto the zombies, or necrotic infection as it s referred to in the book A struggling explanation is also give [...]

    10. Neat little journal styled book, with illustrations every other page Nothing groundbreaking or surprising in the terms of zombie stories, but it has some good artwork and a solid, satisfying story.Compare to Gnomes.

    11. The book I read was kind of an underground book It is called Zombies, The Year of Infection, by Dr Robert Twombly a.ka Don Roff This was a different type of a novel, instead of being a big story, it was a bunch of field notes about the end of the world with zombies destroying everyone and taking over It was based in 2012 it was about a two month period of time It was following the story of a doctor whose hospital got overrun by zombies and he had to flee in order to survive He meets quite a lot [...]

    12. It s hard to imagine anyone picking up this book who isn t aware of the massive resurgence of zombies across pop culture the last few years From film 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, etc to fiction Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, HIstory is Dead , to mock non fiction Zombie Survival Guide, World War Z , to comics The Walking Dead, etc to video games Zombie Apocalypse, etc , zombies have become an unavoidable cross platform genre It seems like the only thing holding zombies back fro [...]

    13. I actually enjoy reading Zombies I thought the pictures were really well done Whoever drew them knew what they were doing Just think about it There are zombies everywhere There are zombies outside the door, and you still have the concentration to draw these pictures Mine would ve looked like a toddler drew them On second thought, I wouldn t have been drawing at all I d have probably been in a corner crying Zombies the book, not the people group helped me to realize that as much as I love zombie [...]

    14. Okay, so I actually had never heard of this before and picked it up at random, because, hey, I love zombie stories Anyway, turns out that this is actually an audiobook of a graphic novel If your first reaction to that is lol whut then we re totally on the same page I really never would have thought that a graphic novel would convert so well to a picture less format, but they did a wonderful job with this, considering that I didn t figure that out until later.There is so much zombie stuff out the [...]

    15. It s true look at any other work of Zombie ness in pop culture, and this will look like a blatant rip off The zombies are seen mindlessly returning to shoping centers Dawn of the Dead , an evil corporation accidentally set of the pandemic Resident Evil , even the road trip aspect was seen in last year s Zombieland, there s also a little World War Z thrown into the mix It isn t filled with new, creative, or clever ideas.However, Don Roff and artist Chris Lane, make the infection and journal real [...]

    16. Although this book lacks any imagination, and stays true to the scenarios we have had tattooed on our brains for the last several decades I kept on reading This book isn t about modifying our perception of the fantasy Zombie world we have grown to love, it is about a normal man trying to survive the end of the world There are no super human survivors who can do triple back flips and throw knives He is just a guy not much different from myself, trying to out run Zombies, and he happened to keep a [...]

    17. Harrowing Heartfelt Honest Also, always avoid alliteration This one sticks with me in my mind The nightmarish world of Zombies is a simple one, which makes it that much easier to understand and let in Straightforward, quick, and emotional despite the protagonist s seeming lack thereof, this book is highly recommended In addition, the illustrations are disgusting, beautiful and haunting They infinitely add to the tension and feeling of this book.

    18. this book defines ZOMBIE.It is great but if you dont like horor movies like saw or other such movies this isnt for you as if you were right next to the narater the whole time the way he describes stuff is just implausible like a few pages into the book and he breaks a hydrochloric acid bottle of his zombified friend and describes how the head and brains melt away as the acid eats at it the realism in this book and the makeshift every thing is pure perfect.

    19. I ve never really been one for zombie stories, but A Record of the Year of Infection was well put together a solid story combined with killer illustrations Whether or not you re a sci fi fantasy horror geek or not, there s a good chance you ll enjoy the ride.

    20. LOVED this book The handwriting and sketchings were top notch Only wish there d been Subtle humor throughout Fabulous.

    21. If you love some F cking Zombies and I m sure you do, you ll enjoy this little piece with totally awesome illustrations super cool

    22. Although this book is very short and only took a little over an hour to read, it was still good A nice scientific view of Zombies and how they become what they are It s worth reading.

    23. I loved this book The illustrations were amazing The story was pretty much like every other Zombie book out there, but I still loved it anyway.

    24. A fun short read along the theme of this Halloween season I truly enjoyed the book because it was dark and had a simple plot A man keeps a journal while caught up in the Zombie outbreak The story will remain one of my favorites because it matched my view of the bleak world the protagonist was thrown into There are also several illustrations that set the tone for this dark world A situation where no one wins and you often survive by pure luckr a while at least.
