    One thought on “Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse. One Beer at a Time”

    1. Not your typical story of the zombie apocalypse by any stretch of the imagination, Richard Johnson's Dead Drunk starts exceedingly well, as Charlie and a crew of his "mates" gather to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of Blake, another member of their crew. The banter between the guys is excellent and had me chuckling along in several places as the (admittedly simple) characters were sketched in. Then the zombie threat emerges, and after a few early losses, the survivors find themselves holed up w [...]

    2. OKrightyour in the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse will you survive?Step 1 Get some guns, someone could get hurt.Step 2 Leave the city, there are too many dead running around man, it's too far away, plus we aren't "country folk".Alright then what should we do?I've got it,gather up as much booze as possible and crash on the top of an apartment building in downtown Chicago until the whole thing just blows over. It'll be fine. We'll drink ourselves into a drunken stupor. Oh ya the crazy cat lady ha [...]

    3. Dead Drunk provides the reader with a different take on surviving the zombie apocalypse. Often times the moral of the story when it comes to apocalyptic fiction is that the screw ups tend to get their comeuppance. Someone might have some dumb luck and avoid getting slaughtered right away, but for the most part, if you are a coward, an imbecile, or a callous, crass, self-absorbed fool you either wise up right away, transform into some sort of crony to the chief bad guy, or die in a very gruesome [...]

    4. My husband and I both LOVED this book. I’ve recommended it to several friends and will continue to do so. It had me giggling like a crazy person so many times, but at the same time, created characters I really cared about and a storyline that was easy to follow, but meaningful. The compassion for animals in the book was also a good touch that I appreciated as a dog and horse person. That just added even more depth to the story and insight into the characters. I even liked the political "snipes [...]

    5. How many times have we seen this cover on other books?Fast forwardOkay, now that I got my gripe about the over-used cover off my chest (see authors response in comments), I can review Dead Drunk. I wasn't even going to read this one right away after downloading it to my kindle, but for some reasonI think it was 'meeting' Richard Johnson, and saw what a nice, normal guy he is.I became more than curious and put my other 5 books on-hold to read it. I read another review that said this story is what [...]

    6. Yeah, yeahI hate to admit this, but I think I actually lost some brain cells reading this book. I mean its hilarious, think The Hangover with Zombies, yet even more ridiculous. (Possibly that new movie coming out "This is the End"I can't say I liked any of the characters, they were all horrible people (I am not saying they were badly written, but down right horrible people) and yet the scary thing is that in a Zombie apocalypse they would be the ones to actually survive, now wouldn't they.In all [...]

    7. Up until Chapter 7, I was giving Dead Drunk two stars: the writing was great, but nothing zombie-like was happening and the racism was too overdone.By the time I was about 75% of the way through I had raised my view to four stars: the writing was still great, the racist cop was finally knocked on his ass (still can't believe no one had clobbered him before then), and the post-apocalypse lifestyle rang true.The last 10 to 15 percent, of Dead Drunk, earned the five star rating.If there is ever a s [...]

    8. I couldn't get behind the characters. They where nicely fleshed out but I personally found them to be a pretty detestable bunch in the way they treated each other. It may have gotten better later, but I gave up after 5 chapters. I can't fault the writing style in any way. Don't take this too harshly though. You might enjoy it. It just wasn't for me.

    9. Praise The Lord, I'm finished. This book could have been great had someone else written it. The only reason I gave a two star rating instead of one is because of the lack of grammatical errors.

    10. A hidden gem. One of the more entertaining zombie books I've read in a while - the characters pretty much leap off the page, grab you by the throat and then crack open a beer.

    11. Dead Drunk gives us something the zombie genre severely lacks: Fun. Whereas the characters in The Walking Dead get all sullen and existential when they run low on food, the degenerates in Richard Johnson’s novel say fuck it, let’s pound beers and eat cat food. Sadly, for me and my friends, this is a very real possibility with or without the apocalypse. Charlie is their de facto leader. He’s substitute teacher who sets the tone at the beginning of the novel when, like the petty drunk he is, [...]

    12. Everything that this book promises is delivered. It's a zombie novel about a guy I wound up rooting for even though he's a loser. The humor is lowbrow, the beer flows freely, and the silliness quotient is high (literally, part of the time). In many places, this book is entirely preposterous, and that's exactly how it should be.I found myself laughing out loud at several points. Although the antics of the survivors can be over the top at times, it's still hilarious. Be forewarned there is a lot o [...]

    13. What do you do when it's the end of the world and everyone around you is trying to eat you? Easy get drunk and throw stuff at the Zombies, from a safe distance that is. A group of middle aged blokes wake up after a drunken sham of a bucks party to the end of the world. This bunch of loosers finds themselves isolated with plenty of booze and fair bit of cat food to keep them going. As they slowly start to die off, picked off by Zombies, suicide and just plain bad luck. The survivors are given a g [...]

    14. Did Not Finish.I listened to an hour (yes, an hour exactly) of this piece of crap before giving up. Maybe it would have been actually funny if I had read it instead of listening to the audiobook? Not sure.I was hoping for Shaun of the Dead meets The Worlds End with a splash of The Hangover.The entire first hour of the audiobook (so however long that translates to in pages of the physical book), was purely The Hangover and I just couldn't stomach any more. I hated The Hangover (and yes, I forced [...]

    15. I have to admit that 3 stars is probably being a bit generous, but I added points for effort. This book is basically centered around a bunch of annoying adult frat-boy types, lock-stepped in their arrested development. Yay for zombie apocalypse; boo for having to spend it with these douche bags. I listened to the audiobook which only worsened my experience as the voice for one of the characters sounded just like Beavis from "Beavis and Butthead". Add to this another character with some form of m [...]

    16. I had the good fortune of knowing Richard Johnson for the short time that I attended Monmouth College. Much like he was during college, his book, DEAD DRUNK, was humorous and entertaining. At times, I had to put the book down because I couldn't hold my tablet straight enough to read as my laughter increased. While the book was admittedly funny, there are tender moments and sad instances in the book that pull at the heartstrings as well. I would fully welcome anyone who enjoys a good zombie book [...]

    17. This is the type of book that people will look at the title and cover, and either love the concept and buy it, or think it's silly and pass on it. If you pass on this one, you will miss a great story! I loved it! Action, humor, awesome characters. like anti heroes. These men are more like your bumbling, average joe neighbors, than the military trained, knowledgable characters in other zombie apocalypse books. But ut works within this story, and makes for a "reallistic" read. Read this book! You [...]

    18. This book could have been a 4 or a 2. I'm giving it 3 because my concentration levels were awful while I was reading it. Not the book or the author s fault but I'm just a a little sick of zombies at the moment. I'm suffering from zombie overload. I need a break from zombies for a while. Now that I've stated this there will probably be a real zombie outbreak. If this happens I will take the advice from this novel and lock my doors and very very drunk and read. Just not about zombies!!!!!

    19. Apparently, I’m on a zombie streak this month with yet another zombie apocalypse audiobook. Dead Drunk seemed to be a promising zombie novel that doesn’t take itself too seriously which is very refreshing considering the generally morbid and depressing nature read more

    20. An interesting bunch of characters, too bad my favorite one got bit and died, but he had an honorable death.Some places amusing, some places downright stupid, some places filled with every cliche known to zombie books. But it was worth the read.Russ kinda pissed me off at the end, but if you've read any of my reviews, you know why.Not a bad read.

    21. This was an awesome book. The zombies are fast. The best friends are cut throat with their jokes. The world building helped fill out the story without taking away too much attention from the main set of characters. I found it very enjoyable to read.

    22. A different take on the zombie apocalypse genre, but so good. This book is fun to read and absolutely hysterical. Can't wait for more like this.

    23. This book is Tucker Max meets a good zombie book!! I couldn't put it down! Character development was good, and the story moved quickly, but effectively. Read this book!

    24. This was an incredibly well written - literally laughing out loud on every page - never ending fun and excitement - drug in the form of a book. I cannot wait to see what the author will do next!

    25. Fun read. Thinking about the zombie apocalypse from a drinking point of view was fun. Must read the second installment to see what happens.

    26. Fasten your seatbelt (and grab a beer!), because you’re in for one heck of a ride!I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a big reader of horror or zombies, but I’ve recently began stepping outside of my comfort zone. What originally compelled me to purchase this book was the fact that it had humor in it, and good humor books are far and few between, sadly. A reviewer likened Dead Drunk to The Hangover, except with zombies. When I first read that comparison, I was worried about the calibe [...]

    27. My full Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse. One Beer at a Time review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.I think you could call Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse… One Beer at a Time National Lampoon’s Zombie Apocalypse or think of it as The Hangover with Zombies. Yes, this audiobook was that ridiculous, full of crude sophomoric humor, plus enough penis jokes to last me at least the rest of the year. I hate to admit it but I was laughing out loud at times and at others it made m [...]
