Please note: I read this book November 27, 2011 from a copy of the book I purchased for myself, as part of a group read. I'm just adding formatting.

My Synopsis: A sleepy, small island off the coast of South America – the perfect vacation spot for people all around the world. Police officers Ramos and Morales have the duty of keeping an eye on the market bazaar – there is never any problem there. The only crime on this island is involved with the drug trade, and the cartel keep their business out

I was so prepared to firewall this book, the author Peter Cummings is a medical examiner board certified in anatomic, forensic, and neuropathology. His is also the lead author of “Atlas of Forensic Histopathology”. No one that I am aware of has more qualifications to do a science based Zombie novel, and in a large extent he succeeds brilliantly.

My background is as a neurosurgical RN who was a former medic in the US Army. As such I can tell you that the author gets every bit of his medicine righ

I LOVED this book. It is possibly one of the best zombie books I have read, and better then any zombie movie. It was just really interesting reading a real explanation on how something like that could happen.

(view spoiler)

There were some formatting issues, like paragraphs where all the words were stuck together, or where a few lines would be spaced so they took up the whole page. But other then that, it was a very w

Hirni wird mit Zombies konfrontiert und geht ihnen mit dem Skalpell zu Leibe. Dabei lernt man viel über die Anatomie des Gehirns und über Viren. Auf die übliche Schilderung der zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen und die Zerrissenheit der Protagonisten wird verzichtet. Fokus liegt auf Gore und Science. Außerdem wird ein Bikini-Zombie erwähnt. Ein Bild, das ich jetzt nicht mehr aus meinem Kopf kriege.

I liked it a lot. Sometimes the medical jargon would get a bit strung out but not so much the the book wasn't enjoybale. I actually learned alot about how zombies could potentially function. Overall i would recommend it to anyone into Zombie books.

I'm not a huge zombie fan, in movie or book form but I picked this book up because I thought it would be interesting to a see a work with more of a focus on the How of zombies existing. Most books or movies just give some quick answer then hope you don't look deep into it because its of course totally scientifically unfeasible.
As expected, this book spends a lot of its focus on the possible science in how zombies could happen. I don't claim to know a lot about the science of the brain but it wa

I loved this book.

I personally read a lot of zombie books and it's not often that you come across one that has a fresh take on the genre. Thankfully, this book does - an epidemiological one.

The protagonist in this story is Dr Hawk, a neuropathologist, who is whisked off by the military to assist with 'a situation'. The entire story is told from Dr Hawk's point of view and this is where the story gets its fresh perspective. Because the author, Peter Cummings, is himself a medical professional, t

AWESOME!! I really enjoyed this book, it was different to the other zombie books i have read. this had scientific findings, it sounded so real it was scary. i don't want to spoil it for others, but when they found out how people got it, I was CREEPED out TOTALLY!! AWESOME!! it made me go hmmm? this is an easy read, it hooks you from page one and you wont want to put it down!! It really is a fascinating book, I hope this author plans to write more like these!! Fantastic story well written! i reco ...more

I was slightly disappointed with The Neuropathology of Zombies. It's stamped as a Zombie Research Society read, and the Amazon reviews were exciting. Unfortunately for me, it fell short.

Peter Cummings book is solid, don't get me wrong! There is just nothing new being offered in the undead genre- My mind was not blown, but perhaps that's too much to ask.

a really good read. a great look into trying to explain many of thhe conflicting sciences sitting in zombie lore. more importantly there was a good story set up and it was a great ending that wasnt hollywoodised.
I also love the opportunity for kore adventures set up. I would definitely read more!. an excelle t book outstanding in the genre for its uniqueness.

An interesting take on the Zombie novel. There is a lot of (pseudo)science here, and a lot of it is interesting and well, perhaps believable. Not about the Neuropathology of Zombies perhaps but at the very least it is a very scary hypothesis that is given here as well as what can happen to the body if infected. Any fan of the genre should pick this one up.

Intriguing, but this has to be one of the worst-edited books EVER.

This is horribly written.
