Book Review: Dead Meat, Day 3
How is everyone doing? I hope you’ve had a good productive week so far.
Personally, I’ve been trying to slow my roll on the reading front. The extended Thanksgiving weekend gave me more time to myself than I thought, and I was spending a lot of time locked up in my apartment reading. I took a little 24-hour break from reading and focused on some grad school things as well as writing on my new short story (more on that in a later post when the grad school semester is officially over).
Anywho, I’m back with another book review! This time I read Dead Meat, Day 3 by Nick Clausen.
Having enjoyed all of the books to date, it’s probably no surprise that I’m continuing the series. What I hope to see soon is a shift from a manageable zombie situation to all out chaos. I’m all about the bloody massacres and horrendous scenes that make you want to curl up in a fetal position and cry for your mommy! Maybe it’s the horror lover in me?
Either way, I started this book with high expectations. Let’s see how it did!

Day 3 of the zombie apocalypse
The story picks up from Day 2. We meet William who works at the hospital. His workday starts out like any other—until he finds two zombies locked in a utility room in the basement. From there, things quickly escalate.
By Day 3, the infection is picking up speed, the zombies are spreading rapidly, and very soon everything could spiral out of control. Is it too late to save the world?

This series just keeps getting better and better!
To date, this series has been about a range of characters trying to prevent a zombie apocalypse after a resurrection ritual goes horribly wrong. After reading the last book, my hopes for this series was that it would pick up on a larger scale. You know, riots in the streets, chaos unchained, all that great stuff a morbid zombie lover could want.
And that’s exactly what I got from this book.
Yet again we are thrust into the chaotic lives of a number of characters. Personally, I liked William and Dan the best. They’re clearly different in terms of personality with William being more of the alpha male role, but I liked the subtle tension between the two when they disagreed on certain things. But mainly I just liked how they reacted quickly to the events happening around them. They aren’t necessarily the brightest bunch, but they know when they are royally screwed if they don’t move.
Mille was interesting, though I didn’t get a full sense of who she was from this book. I hope to see further development going forward.
The only character I didn’t care for (and the reason behind my half-star reduction) was Finn. I didn’t think his mentality or actions made enough sense, much how I felt about Janjak in book one. He’s a bit too sensitive and a quitter for my taste, and his actions later on in the book had me saying to myself “Oh, just die already!”
This book was full of nonstop action. I could see each vivid, gory scene in my mind as I read along, and I loved how the chaos ramped up with each chapter.
If you’re looking for chills and thrills and aren’t squeamish, this is the zombie book to read! Can’t wait to read more.
That’s A Wrap!
Well that’s it for this book review. I hope you enjoyed it!
