Undead Rising: Decide Your Destiny Reviews

    First of all, I have to say how eerie it is that a group of my fellow authors were sitting around Goodreads one day thinking about how cool a Choose Your Own style book would be for adults, and suddenly, Kinkade comes along and offers this. Undead Rising is both a blast from the past and a forward a thinking concept that takes full advantage of the ereader capabilities. I don't think I've yet made it through all of the scenarios, but I am sure the very first path I chose ended with the same doomed fate that I will in the event of the real apocalypse.As for the writing itself, I have to give the author credit. The second person is not easy to write, and they did a fantastic job of keeping the character gender neutral so that anyone can see themselves in the situation. I do hope to see more Decide Your Destiny books in the future.

    Aha! I made it! I survived! Suck it zombies! This book is a great throwback to the choose your own adventure style game books of the past, which I loved. This is a fun romp through a potential zombie outbreak where every decision changes the story. While not perfect, the writing is serviceable enough to keep the story moving and the choices are always interesting. The zombie attacks are carried out with fear-inducing ferocity and you will die at least once. Thankfully those bookmarks come in handy. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys game books or zombiesI would read more game books from this author in a heartbeat.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Of course I read some Choose Your Own Adventure stories when I was younger. And I was awful at them. I never followed the rules. Not once. It was too much fun to follow each and every tangent to see what choices would ultimately lead to what end. So when Undead Rising was submitted to me to read, I was more than a little excited to see what M.E. Kinkade had in store for her readers. Did I explore EVERY SINGLE TANGENT in this book? Yes. Yes I did. And I loved every moment of it. I think what I loved most about it was the tongue in cheek style of writing. Yes, zombies are truly terrifying (unless you're one of those who is confident that surviving the apocalypse will be a veritable cake walk), but Kinkade's style of writing made me laugh, snicker, and grimace all at the same time as page after page I met my inevitable end, either as a human victim or a zombie victim. Oddly enough, I found it realistic as well, in the same sense that Stephen King employed in The Stand. During an apocalypse, will some people die for really really stupid reasons? Yep. Absolutely. They'll slip and fall off of a roof or accidentally lock themselves in a freezer, or some other ridiculous turn of events. I really cannot recommend this book enough. Highly entertaining and lots of fun!

    I actually finished this some time ago, but I have been trying to figure out the best way to write a review without giving away the reasons I truly loved this thing. I can't do it without leaving spoilers.So, if you loved those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books as a kid, read this. You will love it even more.

    An adult choose your own adventure. Will you fight and survive against the zombies or will you become one? Your choices will decide your fate.I loved these as a kid and still enjoy them now. They always seemed to have a couple of built in flaws though. The first was paths didn't always spread out like the branches on a tree with each going to its own endings. Oftentimes choices would lead back to a set path more like a river splitting into two and then reforming into one. The other flaw is that with a static medium, you can find stuff out that would normally give different choices but you are still stuck with the original choices.I have actually seen a choose your own adventure that solved the second flaw. Since ebooks can take advantage of its more fluid medium, then it can modify choices as you progress through the story. Unfortunately, this CYOA. (Choose Your Own Adventure) did not take advantage of this capability. This led to me getting caught in a loop. I went upstairs and discovered some information. This path ended up sending me back downstairs only to end up going back upstairs to find out the same information again. And again and again as long as stuck to those choices.I have also found a couple of instances where it doesn't matter what choice you make, the result ends up the same.So far, I haven't found any satisfying ending if you become a zombie. Of course, I still have a lot of paths to follow. But that leads to the last built-in flaw. While you have a lot of choices, you still end up repeating a lot of material to get to the new choice. Yes, you can bookmark the pages with choices but then you run into having to remember what lead to that choice.So far, this has sounded pretty negative. I don't mean for it to be that way. The book is entertaining and zombie fans should get be able to sink their teeth into it (sorry about that). Just go into it knowing that you will die a lot (usually in an unpleasant manner so probably best for teens and up) and there are some flaws, but it will be fun.

    Fun idea, different ways to succeed, but some of the choices lead to quite lame results (view spoiler)[like if you chose to barricade yourself in your appartment, you get bored within 24 hours with reading and puzzles of kittens so you're forced to run outside and get eaten by zombies?? (hide spoiler)]

    I used to read choose your own adventure books when I was 10 years old. I loved them. It was around that age when I first discovered Resident Evil 2 and fell in love with that series. This book reminded me of those loves.First of all I got the paper back edition and cannot speak to any issues a "Choose your own adventure book" might encounter on kindle.As a work of fiction the writer's voice is unique and strong. The tone sits somewhere between snarky, serious, fun and sincere and oscillates between each of those feelings with a appropriate pace. The choices are great and the story progresses with a realistic logic and consequences. This world is dangerous and there is sometimes no good choice at all.I felt the talent of the writer got in the way of the format/style of this book in places. The writer's flair for storytelling takes the choice out of the readers hand as they follow along for more than two pages but this seems to be more of a personal style of the writer and not a flaw, necessarily. I would have liked to have seen more choices, quicker action in places. Also I am not sure who to recommend this book to.I don't like giving away the story in my reviews but one part of this book makes it standout. Form the title you can figure that the main antagonist are zombies. If you are bitten, under the right conditions you can become a zombie and make choices AS a zombie. This is a lot of fun and was the best part of the book.Intelligently written and a hoot to read this book seems to beacon all readers, young and old. Do yourself a favor and read it. You won't be disappointed.

    Do you have what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse? Do you believe you have the chops to protect yourself and make the right decisions that will guarantee your safety in a world where your neighbors view you as the next midnight snack? Megan Kinkade's inaugural genre fictional piece is an enjoyable read with a multiple number of endings that you, as the reader, can determine by the decisions you make during the course of a day when a viral outbreak in NYC leaves the population at the mercy of the undead. I thoroughly enjoyed the pace and the different courses of action as I attempted many times to survive the attack. Yes, it is possible in Megan's book to survive. Unfortunately, I, too, became one of the mindless zombies during my attempt to do so. At least, with Megan's book, I now have a guide on what NOT to do when the apocalypse comes.

    So Fun!! Growing up I loved choose your own adventure books. Everytime I read them it was something new, something that changed depending on my mood. I was so excited when I got this book and felt like a kid all over again. This is an adult choose your own adventure and I have read this book 3 times so far and each time I have had different results (well 2 times are the same but how I developed into the undead is different). I know that I will read this book more, just to see if at some point I'm smart enought to "make it". Once again, So Fun!!

    Avoid or become a zombie. Doesn't matter. The outcomes are awesome either way.Choose Your Own Adventures are for kids. Decide Your Destiny Zombie Edition is for adults. With over forty different endings, there is hours and hours of delightful endings to explore. Becoming a zombie is part of the fun and making choices as a zombie is awesome.

    This book is a hoot! Made me laugh out loud. This "Choose Your Own Adventure" book is creative and entertaining. It reminds me very much of the old DOS adventure games like the Zork series. It's funny how many ways you can turn yourself (unwittingly) into a zombie. A great read.
