I got all the Last Stand (audio)books by William H. Webber as a birthday present and I must say they were an amazing gift. If you’re into survival, zombie apocalypse, prepping for doomsday, weapons fanatic and interested in self-preservation – this book – these books – are amazing. They are a wealth of information and while they don’t deal just with survival in a case of a zombie apocalypse (like Max Brooks’s Zombie Survival Guide), they are interesting enough to keep you occupied for a few days.
I read this book when it first came out in 2010 following the success of the manga with the same name. I read the manga and I read the book an I even watched the crappy movie adaptation. I loved it all. It’s got the three key elements that make a book interesting. Sex, crime, rock&roll. And also an oppressing government trying to kill everyone in a battle to the death. Way before the Hunger Games and the capitol, way before Highlander (where there can be only one) and waaay before Fortnite, a battle to the last person standing enthralled the nation. And this year, the games had previous year’s winner amongst the students.
