Fool’s Apocalypse Review

Fools’ Apocalypse is Special

This Last Virus book one is written by Anderson Atlas, and he promised me that I would be hooked after the first chapter. Since I thought that I am a hard person to please, and it would have been a pleasure to make this post a rant to put him in his place. Well, either way it was that or enjoy the book right? I have nothing to lose. The cover is illustrated by the author as well, I must admit that they are a lot of hints on the cover that is only understood once you read the book.

Such as the No U Turn…

bwahaha … well played.

What about this?

First, the story starts with a series of events with a slightly jumbled time line. The book is written in third person point of views, but the timeline is roughly about the same. I think everyone except for Markus, whose story starts a lot earlier. After that, the characters converge into one, featuring the main core of the story. There was a virus that killed a lot of people, and somehow created things that are called Puppets. The story does not focus on that yet, so the characters and me are kinda clueless about what they are.

Fool’s Apocalypse is more about the events that lead to the almost extinction of mankind. Zilla was the main planner, and the people who executed are the soldiers of the cause. Hence, this one person has brought about the end of civilisation, using naive people who never stopped to think or question. If there’s chills running down your spine, you know that this happens in real life too. I suppose this book has a lot of similarities to the real world scenario right now. All it takes is one charming maniac who spits out the right words, and all hell breaks lose.

Characters

Ian was the guy that I remembered most, Hannah the cop came a close second. They were idealistic, and both wanted to make the world a better place. There are a few more key characters in the book, but sadly I cannot recall their names as yet. All the characters are distinctly different with a unique skill sets. Hannah can shoot of course, being a cop makes her think more strategic. Ian however, is a writer and a politician’s son, hence he is quite a diplomat when he wants to be.

Zilla is the one who dominates the whole of Fool’s Apocalypse, his identity unknown until close to the end. That is when readers find out how Zilla had managed to manipulate people into creating this mess of a situation. I applaud Zilla’s masterful mind, but secretly hope that someone stabs him in the chest before he does something worse, like … blow up the planet.

Verdict

I enjoyed Fool’s Apocalypse, definitely worth the read. And please don’t read it during Christmas time it can destroy an appetite.

Fools’ Apocalypse Review #8

Best Zombie Apocalypse Book I Have Read

By Tammy Shaver on September 11, 2016

This book is one of the best zombie apocalypse books that I have read to date. I started reading it on the 26th of August and it took me two days to finish it. The characters throughout the story grabbed my attention from the beginning and I just could not put it down.

It starts out with different citizens throughout the city doing odd jobs in several locations. Some sort of spy type program designed to spy on people, or at least that is what you think at the beginning. You then discover it was a set up for a more sinister plan than anyone could imagine. The only ones who do not get infected is the one’s who helped do the jobs, but this book even makes you think if they will survive.

Zombies come to life after some time and these survivors have to figure out ways to survive. It is not an easy task. A lot of obstacles emerge in their paths, but they are determined to survive. I really cannot say much more as otherwise I might give away the whole story, but I will say that everyone should read this book. Just fascinating, and the author has done such a good job at keeping the plot going.

If you are a zombie buff, conspiracy theorist, or whatever may be the case grab a copy of this book, you will not be disappointed.

Book Life’s Critical Review for Fool’s Apocalypse

Critic’s Report

Title: Fools’ Apocalypse
Author: Anderson Atlas
Genre: Fiction/Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror
Audience: Adult
Word Count: 398

Assessment:

After inadvertently helping an evil mastermind who triggers a zombie apocalypse, a group of survivors must flee to a distant shelter called Eden. Atlas’s story is the most gripping when he turns away from the common zombie narratives and clichés to concentrate instead on the stories of the “fools” who aided the mastermind, and the dark adventure of their desperate flight from New York City to Eden’s distant sanctuary. Fans of zombie stories and survival tales will find entertainment in this apocalyptic novel.
