Zombie Survival Guide Response
When the undead army has risen and all shit hits the fan what should you do? Don’t fear Max Brooks is here. He lays out every detail you would need to know in order to survive one of the worst threats humanity could face. In the beginning of the book Brooks describes what zombie are. Though most book deals with zombies suffering from the Solanum instead of voodoo.
