I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway, and the author, Walter Greatshell, was kind enough to see to it that I received the book straightaway.

Due to some unexpected personal upheavals, I have been very slow in reading this book, but so far it is a most unique take on the zombie trend. Beatles music is woven in and out of the prose, and so the book reads almost like a script complete with its own soundtrack. I am a great Beatles fan, and I approve of the songs that Mr. Greatshell uses to illustr...more

I enjoyed the first two books in the series, with a fun take on zombie tales. All the books had significant issues with characterization and coherency, but they were enjoyable and at least the author made the attempt to round out lead characters and create a plot that made (a small amount of) sense.

This book, however, seems to have lost the thread of fun. There is an attempt to flesh out the main characters by giving back story, but this fails to give the characters anything much resembling real...more

Wow, what a mess. The trilogy started off great with "Xombies," which I read in 2004. Then I found out earlier this year there were two more books. The second was also very good. And then I read this one. The constant attempts at humor pretty much ruined it for me. It's hard to take the book seriously when the author can't even do it. It's filled with characters I don't care about, doing and saying things that made me roll my eyes so much they nearly fell out of my head. What a pitiful end to a...more

Have no idea where I got this book. Anyway to cut a long story short I just started it.
EDIT: Just realized that this is the third book in the trilogy, so I'm gonna read the other books first.

Great end to this fabulous series. Although I think Xombies: Apocalypse Blues is the first book in this trilogy. All good. All well worth the read.
Cindy Engelhardt
This is a terrific sequel to the second book, and a great stand alone if you haven't read either book! Get it now!

Different...a bit weird but good. Probably should have started with book 1

Walter Greatshell here. I am the author of XOMBIES (Berkley, 2004), which was rereleased as XOMBIES: APOCALYPSE BLUES (2009), and followed by the sequels XOMBIES: APOCALYPTICON (2010), and XOMBIES: APOCALYPSO (2011). I have a short story called "The Mexican Bus" in the zombie anthology THE LIVING DEAD 2 (Night Shade Books), and my novel MAD SKILLS was called "the literary equivalent of a syringe o...more
