Book Review: Dead Meat, Day 8
I hope you’re having a fabulous Saturday. Me, I’m just happy that this week has come to an end. There have been a lot of developments in my life this week, both good and bad, and it’s been exhausting. But I’ll save that for another post.
For now, it’s time for another book review!
Continuing my binge of the Dead Meat series by Nick Clausen, I just finished Day 8.
From the end of the last book, there was so much at stake with a potential way to end the zombie apocalypse. It left me really antsy, so I dove into this one as soon as I could.
Alright, on to the review!

The dead have awakened. The world is ending. This is day eight.
The end is getting closer and the last hope for humanity is dying. The hours tick by with lightning speed as our last survivors grasp for one more desperate attempt at stopping the pandemic before it can turn the entire world’s population into flesh eating corpses …

It’s crazy that this series is about to end in just one book. It’s been an incredible journey, and like the other books, this one had a lot to offer.
Dan heads back to Denmark to hopefully find a solution to all this chaos, and Iver continues to fight for survival on the island he’s stuck on. Will they persevere against the odds, or come up short like so many others have?
I think what really worked in this particular novel is that there are so many developments, and it’s a real roller coaster ride. Since we’re almost at the end of the series, a lot needed to happen, and overall I was pretty satisfied.
We finally got some serious answers as to how this might end, and though I give Clausen major brownie points for creativity, something about the actual solution doesn’t feel quite right to me. Even after the solution is explained it’s a little difficult to digest, so maybe it’s that.
That being said, Clausen doesn’t completely reinvent the wheel. You can count on lots of great action, some seriously sticky situations, and plenty of heartache.
Dan’s POV definitely stood out more than Iver’s did this time, but both were enjoyable. Dan has really grown a bit in this one, and Iver’s side of things felt a bit more tragic. Come on you guys, you can make it!
If you’ve gotten this far in the series, don’t stop now! It’s so worth it!
That’s A Wrap!
Well that’s it for this book review. I hope you enjoyed it!
