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 perfect narration to move this already quick story along even faster. I'm excited to hear more stories narrated by him.
Zombies vs. The Living Dead was a great first glance into the world that Tayell has created with the Surviving the Evacuation world. I have the other books in the series to read, but I decided to dip my toes in the water with this one. Short and sweet, I got a really nice look into the way that Tayell writes and a quick glance at the world that he will be creating (and destroying) in the other books.
The actual story was really well done. I'd never seen the angle that Tayell took, and I liked it. I also liked that the main character wouldn't give up on the woman he'd be caring for, even with the world crashing down around him.
A quick hitter, Zombies vs. the Living Dead was a really enjoyable book. And now I can't wait to dive into the rest of the series.

Any additional comments?
I enjoyed listening to this spin off from Tayell's UK based 'Surviving the Evacuation' series. It takes place in a state retirement home in a small village on the English coast. Perhaps the hidden meaning of the story is that we shouldn't subject our elders to such places as they are easily forgotten. But, in a zombie apocalypse its everyone for themselves and while many of the pensioners wait for help, and threaten to complain to their MP, the main character (George Tull) does his best to help his fellow residents survive (although he despises most of them and they are largely ungrateful for his efforts). My only complaint is that it ends too soon. I would love to see Tull pop up later or in the main series.
What did you like most about Surviving the Evacuation, Book 0.5: Zombies vs. the Living Dead?
This is only a short story (but it is part of an amazing series). I love that this series is set in the UK. This story is about a zombie outbreak in an old peoples home.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved that some of the elderly people were not afraid to get stuck in and deal with the zombies.
Which character – as performed by Tim Bruce – was your favourite?
Tim Bruce is really good at narrating the different characters in the story.
Any additional comments?
I would reccommend this story to anyone, even if you haven't listened to zombie stories before. I promise once you have listened to this you will want to listen to the whole series (currently 8 stories in total!).
