Aliens Versus Zombies - Reviews

Lots of great reviews!
  • “Excellent book. I couldn't put it down after [I] started to read it. Took just a few days to finish. Very nice read.”—Phu, (5 stars)

  • “I absolutely love Cross Genre fiction, and to combine my favorites, aliens and zombies, wow!”—Firebug193, (5 stars)

  • “This was actually a fantastic read. Hard to imagine but so. I really enjoyed the story.”—Allan, Goodreads (5 stars)

  • “A Fun and Entertaining Read that Just Happens to Include Zombies. As a rule I don't like zombie books. … But I was desperate for something new to read and decided to take a chance on this book (based on all the positive Amazon reviews) and I really enjoyed it. ... The characters were well developed and acted in a believable way and it was an exciting story. There were many times I had to stop reading to get some work done and it was really hard to put the book down. It was a book I dreaded ending because it[’]s so hard to find such a fun read.”—BookWorm (5 stars)

  • “The characters in the book are in some ways more accurately portrayed than what I'm used to and that's a good thing. These are not all-knowing supermen. They are living in a zombie apocalypse at the beginning of the book. They fight, they travel and they loot. It makes sense. They don't necessarily know how to do everything right. When they find a horse most of them don't know how to care for it. They're not expert riders their first day. It drives me crazy when you see a city boy (no offense, I am one.) just jump up on horse and start growing things out of nowhere. When they find an alien gun, they can't figure out how to use it because it doesn't work like a gun that humans would build. They eventually do figure out how to drive an alien vehicle but they get spotted because they suck at it. When they try to blow up an electrical tower it doesn't work at first and they have to try again, etc. They know enough to survive but not much more. I enjoyed that. Chapman's characters are believable in another respect: They react the way that they should. When two sixteen year old boys go off to fight the aliens they're excited. The veteran in the group tries to calm them down. They fall in love with people of inappropriate ages. They bicker among themselves. Things are never perfect.”—Jim, Goodreads (5 stars)

  • "I really enjoyed this book. A very different, unique twist on the zombie genre and I did NOT see the ending coming as it surprise. Good pacing, likeable characters that you root for and a true desire on my part to read it as quickly as I could to see what happened next. I honestly can't give a book higher praise than that."Susan (5 stars)

  • “The book was an incredibly entertaining and well-written tale of sci-fi action and suspense. I…was pleasantly surprised to find a rather unique take on the 'Zombie' virus that not only explains things a little better than what most would expect, but lends a wonderful foundation of scientific believability to an otherwise 'out there' story.”C.M.W. Hawkins, Amazon Canada (5 stars)

  • “Very good book. Interesting concept, for sure. … the military tech is believable. The characters are great, and leaves you mo[u]rning some of their passing. The ending wasn’t expected… Great read.”Nick C H. (5 stars)

  • “A fun read. Zombies and aliens aren't usually going to be found in the same book. Author Chapman has found a way to blend both genres into a great story, full of excitement and suspense, as a small band of humans find themselves pitted against both zombies and aliens. It's easy to identify with the humans as they struggle for survival; you feel the relentless struggles as they do everything they can to survive. I enjoyed this book very much and recommend it to fans of science fiction (and zombies, too).”—Steve (5 stars)

  • “Great read. An entertaining read with a lot of action. A book for almost all ages with plenty of surprises.”Jonathan G. Meyer (5 stars)

  • “In the years since I bought my first kindle, I have read at least a hundred books, and this is only the second time I felt obliged to write a review in order to encourage EVERYONE to download and read this different kind of novel. … It is written so well, and is such a "page turner," that, although I almost never read space novels, I could hardly put it down. Can the human race actually overcome in a world that is being overrun by feral zombies - and also attacked from space? While this seems too fantastic, it is made very believable by this excellent author. I dare anyone to download the sample of this book and not go get the rest of the story once that is read. This is one of those books that is worth 10 times the price. What an enjoyable read!”Brian from Saratoga, NY (5 stars)

  • First you have to understand one thing, I hate Zombie books. But this is a good on[e]. The characters are believable, the action is believable, the science is believable: in other words, a believable book. I wonder if there is going to be a sequel.”—Philip D. Long (5 stars)

    “Zombies and Aliens [were] not something I thought would mix well. I was wrong. Once i started it, I could not put it down although I eventually had to sleep and eat. I breezed through it in a couple of days. What is so great about this is that the author has ordinary people in the story line … They are not experts at anything, they are everyday people that have survived the worst plague in our worlds' history. I do like that the author gives you a quick lesson in virology and biology,(nothing a layman can't follow). It's almost unnoticed but as it continues you will reference it in your mind … The arrogance of the Aliens is literally their undoing as they tamper with things they do not understand. The fight between the Uninfected humans and Aliens is brutal, disturbing and very real. It is war for the survival of each species and the prize is Earth.”—Amanda Felix (5 stars)

  • “Great take on both Zombies and Aliens. I really enjoyed this story. After reading about it and seeing the posts Mr. Chapman listed on the Zombie book page on Facebook, felt like I needed to give it a read. Really glad I did. Great book Mark!”—Teresa Tidwell (5 stars)

  • “Great Book”—Darrell Hunt (5 stars)

  • Here is a small part of the detailed review from "Jimbo's Awesome SF&F Book and Movie Reviews". He gave AVZ "4.5 Exploding Alien Heads" out of 5. To quote a small part of it: "Chapman very obviously comes from the George RR Martin school of character development. I'd also be willing to bet that he's watched more than one episode ofThe Living Dead. He has added what I view as a necessary element of pretty much any zombie story: He will let you get close to a character and then kill them. He has no problem doing so. Given the type of story this is, he needs to. I've always been a big fan of that kind of gritty writing. That kind of story development builds suspense. When I'm not sure if the point of view character that I'm currently reading about; is going to be alive on the next page I get into the story more. I can't help turning the page to find out how things turned out and where the author is taking me next. Chapman delivered a story that kept me engaged and wanting more. "  Go here for the full review:

  • “Mr Chapman has done something that only John Ringo, With his Islands of Rage and Hope series, has previously managed…ENJOYED it. There were many twists to the story line, all well written and plotted, and the human / Zom interactions had something to 'em I'd never previously thought of…tale well told, original, and satisfying at the end. Well done, sir.”WhiteGeorge, Amazon France (4 stars)

  • “I enjoyed this book, a bit different from other zombie books.”—CathyBookWormBrisbane (4 stars)
