I was lucky enough to receive “Zombie Night In Canada: 1st Period” by Jamie Friesen free in exchange for a review. The first thing I want to say is that I normally don’t critique editing especially when the book is written about, or by someone from a different country than myself. However, I just wanted to toss a little comment out there that I thought the editing was well done (in my opinion) and didn't cause me to have to re-read something in order to understand the content. I especially appre ...more
Zombie Night in Canada is one of those zombie reads that captures everything I love about this genre. The main characters are normal people thrown into a terrifying, overwhelming situation and proceed to make the best of a bad lot, all the while dodging, ducking and diving around the increasing zombie threat.

Familiar pop-culture references (for example zombie movies, blogs and Twitter) make the story feel more realistic - after all, if rumours of a zombie virus surfaced, chances are you are goin
I had a really hard time writing this review. Mainly because this book isn't super great, and it isn't absolutely horrible. It's right dead (no pun intended) center middle of the road. The writings decent, the plot moves along at a good pace, with lots of action to keep you involved and routing for the good guys. There is a lot of head hopping, but for me that wasn't an issue. Yet it might have been the only glaring thing in the book was the misuse of multiple points of view.

Zombie Night in Canada: First Period has it all. There is constant action, fighting and survivalism to the extreme. Readers are taken on a journey where they see how this pandemic goes from one individual at a hospital to a complete of society. We are given the points of view from law enforcement officials, military personnel, city officials, and a very clever hockey player.

I liked the way the chapters were split up. Readers are given worldwide updates periodically. This books setting is Canada

This is one of the few books that describes a zombie outbreak in the Great Northern expanse known as Canada. It’s also one of the few that tells the story of such an outbreak from multiple character/survivor perspectives and makes it work.

Zombie Night in Canada tells the story of several groups of survivors and how they deal not so much with the dead walking but infected people from a strain of what is thought to be rabies. This makes those infected very aggressive and very dangerous.

Zombie Night in Canada is a good, straight forward, first zombie book by fellow Albertan Jamie Friesen. At the end of the book the author makes some comments about his work, which I feel sum up my thoughts nicely. Jamie acknowledges that his goal was not to add anything new to the genre, simply tell a story through the unique Canadian perspective which has certainly been absent within the genre.

There are many good Canadian Indie authors out there who have dabbled with the idea of zombies, and I
*I was given a copy of this book for free, in exchange for an honest review.

It all starts with a bite.

Zombies are running loose in Canada. The local police and sent out to quarantine. But as all infections go, they spread. One zombie turns into two, two into four, four into eight and so on. How is Canada and the rest of the world supposed to fight off this horrible virus that is spreading and not die trying to figure it out?

I love a good zombie story and this book did NOT fail to deliver what it

I love zombies! I love Edmonton! I love reading! So you can imagine how excited I was when the author of this book sent me a copy...a zombie apocalypse tale set in my own hometown!! Unfortunately, that was the only real appeal to the book, which sucks for anyone not from Edmonton and who doesn't care so much for the living dead.

The biggest problem with the book was the characters' lack of development...there simply was no one I cared about in this book. The author also delved too far into the w
Refreshing change

I liked the fact that the author took into consideration how the freezing winters would impact on the 'infected'. Also as a new immigrant in Edmonton I liked the fact that the book was set here!
Fantastic outlook at the zombie apocalpys Canadian style.
