I like skiing and the snow that comes with it. I like zombies. I like reading stories set in my home country. So I thought Ice Station Zombie: A Post Apocalyptic Chiller was going to be a home run for me.

Instead, it was barely a popped fly ball

Baseball euphemisms aside, Ice Station Zombie lacked many of the components I consider essential to a decent zombie apocalyptic read. There was no tension-filled beginning, or relatable characters who avoided being overly cliched. Likewise, there was a se

Overall, not a bad read. This was one of those whim purchases that looked pretty interesting from the description, and I would say it lived up to expectations. My biggest gripe with the novel was not the story itself, but with the quality of the Kindle edition. There were quite a few grammatical and syntax errors. Additionally, there were a few glaring continuity errors on the part of the writer (or editor, as the case may be). While they were relatively minor, they served to break the narrative ...more

The very beginning, in Antarctica, was pretty good but then it began a rather quick plummet. This is the second zombie book I've read recently where the zombies are less of a threat than the remaining humans and I read zombie books to read about humans surviving (or not) zombies. If I wanted to read about humans surviving or not surviving other humans I could just read the news. ...more

I feel like many of the reviews already posted on Amazon thoroughly discuss some the book's issues, as well as the plot. The author is a very strong writer; the survival tactics each character plans out, as well as their reactions to the crises, are very well thought-out. The characters, and the author, don't waste time attempting to deny or define what has happened, but rather, they're attempting to cope with their new reality while trying to understand how they can rebuild. The most interestin ...more

I found parts of this book fascinating in many respects and there were some slow spots that did not seem terribly relevant to the overall story. The author did a very nice job telling the story and struggles of the characters in Antartica, those were the sections I could not put down or stop reading! Their encounters with other bases & the new zombies and the airplane was fast moving and full of suspense. The second plot line in Australia started very strong as well, but sort of slowed to a craw ...more

I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead and Z Nation on TV, so I thought why not try reading a zombie-themed book? I liked how the novel took place in Antarctica and Australia--for whatever reason, I don't really read much that takes place on either continent. I also grew to love the characters, which makes me excited for the sequel (although I do believe the second novel follows a different set of people).

I will definitely be looking into more from this author!

Excellent read!

Great book! The story starts out fast and never lets up. Tons of zombies and action, just the way I like my books.
