    1. George Tull is a 69 year old retiree who lives in a carehome with his bedbound friend, a bunch of grumpy residents, and a staff that doesn't seem to give two hoots about any of them. He nicknames the other residents "The Living Dead", an ironic tongue-in-cheek name given that the zombie apocalypse breaks out and the staff leave the pensioners behind to fend for themselves. This is a short story, just a little glimpse into a sensitive subject that post apocalyptic books never seem to touch - how [...]


    2. Quick but really good set up for the series. My Thoughts: I don't know if you've ever seen the film Cockney's vs. Zombies but this story reminded me of it. In a nutshell the living dead are geriatric pensioners who are abandoned by their caretakers at the onset of a zombie apocalypse. This is a very short story but the character George and the actions he takes will stick with you right up until the bittersweet end. This story has no winners, no grand rescues, only the last moments of a group of [...]






    3. What happens to senior citizens once the world ends. Well, the world has ended, but it is ending. Zombies are rising up and killing and infecting anything they can lay their hands on. Zombies vs. the Living Dead takes a look inside a senior home during the apocalypse. What would happen? How would the "living dead" survive a zombie attack?Tim Bruce provides the narration for this story and does a really nice job. I really felt like he was there when all of this went down. Bruce provides the perfe [...]


    4. Adorable story of a zombie outbreak occurring in New York and how it affects the inhabitants of a retirement home in the U.K. Main character was loveable and eccentric. Adorable short story.



    5. Nice tale from a new angleLiked this one - short and sweet and to the point. We possibly had some space for a little more character building, but that's a zombie pandemic for you - they ain't hanging about for their dinner! Fortunately, the zombies in this town are 'wanderers', giving our aged heroes half a chance (unlike the 'aggressive sprinters' we have met in 28 Days Later and Dawn of the Living Dead) - go on George, impale him/her/it!I will be taking a look at Mr Tayell's other work - if yo [...]


    6. A short story about some characters that appear in book #3 of the Surviving the Evacuation series, so you can read it before book 3 or after. I have read it before and I don't know, it helped me a bit to see the main character as a nice guy which I otherwise maybe wouldn't have.I don't recommand it as the first book in the series! It's better to start with book 1 and Bill's journals, that way you get better into the story and the world described.Technically, it's a good book and it gave me some [...]


    7. Part of a series but good stand alone story with a good, but not conclusive, end. Good writing, no cursing [or very little- I may have missed something though I don't think so], interesting premise. I kept wondering why the other residents looked down on the main character and it was finally revealed about midway through [just seemed odd not to explain the first time their dislike was mentioned- not a big secret].


    8. This is a nice short read with zombies.George Tull is a character I could sympathize with and I cheered him on as he's trying to find out where all the staff is gone when a zombie invasion is imminent. He's resourceful and can kick zombie ass better than many younger guys could.For a short story there's a really decent story line and the suspense and action build up nicely towards the ending.All in all an entertaining read.


    9. WI really enjoyed the back story of George and Mary and how am older couple with their wisdom and knowledge might survive such an apocalyptic event and go on to be the leaders of one of the last strongholds of humanity. It takes incredible strength and spirit to pull this off. And shows shear guts and common sense can save the day when all else fails.


    10. 2nd reading!I am reading this series for the second time as it was so good. This is like a nice little prequel before the main event, both of which I highly recommend if zombie survival novels are your thing.


    11. BrilliantA must read. Almost had me in tears . can't wait to read the next book. Keeping my hopes up for poor George!


    12. A brilliant little novella introduction to the Surviving the Evacuation series. Will definitely read more



    13. A little short story setting up for the Surviving the Evacuation series. Not often you have a pensioner as a zombie killer


    14. All I have to say is Frank Tayell writes the most addictive post apocalyptic books I know, better than The Living Army series. Highly recommended


    15. Nutshell: Zombies and old people. It's Bubba Ho-Tep with less Elvis and JFK. Also, less laughs.Atmosphere: I like how slowly it builds up. Time is so important, and so inconsequential, the minutes and the seasons. Very calm and peaceful, rolling along with the apocalypse.Characters: 4 out of 5. I like how you can feel Dora's character a little even though she's dead. The "living dead" are written well as a class, as is the main character himself and his friend. Plot: 4 out of 5. This is only the [...]


    16. This well-written, absorbing, very relatable work of short fiction, told from the perspective of a senior home resident, provides a refreshing take on the zombie genre. I devoured the book quickly, am now happily reading Surviving the Evacuation Book One: London, and am gearing up to obtain the sequels.Reading Surviving the Evacuation Book 0.5: Zombies vs The Living Dead was especially poignant for me, as the (mis)treatment of the senior home residents featured in the book and the plundering of [...]


    17. A good readThis book was well written. Worth a read if you like books about zombies. I am going to download the rest of the books in the series


    18. So , poor George has no family , his wife having died previously. He is now stuck in a rather dull nursing home , his only friend in there being Mrs O`Leary , who happens to be bed bound.In an interesting twist to normal zombie books this one focuses on how the elderly would fair after an outbreak. Which i quite enjoyed.George is one of the youngest residents at waverly price , hes also only using it as a "pit-stop" going to lern electronics at the local shop so he can go out and get a job and h [...]


    19. This is a good read for those who like their zombie stories on the tame side. It really is a story within a story, the characters are all just living their lives while the world is going crazy, they are not even aware it is going on. I suppose this could be true for the residents of a nursing home. Most of their information about daily life would come from the staff of the facility. If the staff disappeared there would be no updates. Sad but true, a little scary in itself if you think about it. [...]


    20. A zombie outbreak takes over the world – written from the point of view of a elderly chap in an old-folks’ home in a small British village.George isn’t your usual hero, or retiree. He’s staying in an old-folks home, he’s got a girlfriend, even if she’s bedbound, is learning mechanics from a local shop owner, and has a plan. And then the virus epidemic starts, and the evacuations and in a beautifully eerie scene the residents of the home find out they have been abandoned. I’m not sa [...]


    21. Avevo da tempo scaricato il primo capitolo della serie, approfittando di una offerta a costo zero ma, come tanti altri ebook, è rimasto a prendere polvere virtuale sul lettore.Questo prequel, sempre a costo zero e più breve, mi è parso un ottimo aggancio per convincermi a leggere il primo capitolo.Solita epidemua zombie, con città in procinto di essere evacuate e abbandonate in mano ai non morti. La sola differenza, per lo meno nel prequel, è che il manipolo di sopravvissuti sono un gruppo [...]


    22. I can't believe I'm giving this dinky little zombie story 4 stars, but I am. I went into it thinking it would just be another zombie rehash and that after reading the first story, my hunger would be satiated and I wouldn't care to read the rest of the series. However, surprisingly enough, there was heart in this story. As crazy as that sounds. For being only 45 pages I can't believe how quickly I started to like George and Mary, the main characters of this story. And after the ending, which I wo [...]


    23. This is an interesting novella to the start of a series. The plot is well paced and builds up nicely until the bomb of an ending (and what an ending that was! Brilliant!)Naturally, there are zombies but they are not the main feature of this story and though they do hover constantly out of sight, they do not make a true appearance until the very end. No, the focus of this story is the fading hope of being evacuated until the moment when it is crushed and turns into a fight for survival which is s [...]


    24. the series gives a different perspective on the concept. no big heroes in grand quests, just average people, mostly on their own, dealing with the more mundane aspects of live as the apocalypse unfolds. That makes it interesting in a "not the same old thing" way, but this stand-alone - of a man in an old folks home - is like the pilot to a show that maybe didn't get picked up. If this story ends up merging into the larger series the author is penning that it would redeem itself, but on its own i [...]
