Book Review – Zombies: Complete Guide to the World of the Living Dead

Zombies: Complete Guide to the World of the Living DeadZombies: Complete Guide to the World of the Living Dead by Zachary Graves

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It’s an decent read, covering zombies in a cultural sense as well as in popular media. I felt that the book for have gone into greater detail with some of the media references (there are a number of zombie movies that the books mentions in passing, but never revisits them to explain why they were included). There is a section of zombie movies that feels redundant since at least five of the movies (White Zombie, I Walked With A Zombie, and the first three Romero “Dead” movies) are covered extensively in previous chapters. A better use for the chapter would be to give a brief description of some of the other “zombie movies” that are mentioned in the book once, then never mentioned again.
