    I was excited to find this book at the dollar store because it looked like a lot of fun, and it was! Now I wouldn't normally rate a cookbook, but this one included a short zombie story along with the recipes. The story was a blast to read and it had Daryl in it, who everyone knows is the best character on a particular zombie show that I am completely addicted to. And the recipes were hilarious because they had great zombie apocalypse inspired names like "gutted mushrooms" and "dripping ribs".

The recipe directions were in on the joke also with instructions like using a "death grip" to squeeze the liquid out of spinach and "violently" crushing garlic. And the food photos were awesome with details like splattered ketchup and broken plates. An added bonus, some of the recipes sound really good and I will definitely try them out!

    Funny! Same author as another parody I like: Fifty Shades of Chicken: A Parody in a Cookbook. Great parody. Recipes are just so-so, nothing special, but you would expect that of a snack cookbook.

    This is a cookbook centered around a parody of the Walking Dead. Suffice to say the plot is relatively unsatisfying, but as I've yet to make a single recipe, I cannot speak for the food itself. I found the "tips" on each recipe to be the real humor; tips like "A long handled metal pizza peel is an ideal weapon for fighting the undead".

    This was quite a bit of fun. It has fun recipes like Gory Red Grinder and Sweet-ish Fleshballs, but it is interspersed with vignettes about survivor Pam and her family. She has pleasant memories of her childhood friendship with everyone's favorite redneck, Daryl Dixon, and we also get to follow Daryl on a supply run. Will Pam and Daryl finally meet again all these years later? Will she make him another grilled cheese sandwich? Will he kill a squirrel for her?

Will Pam and Daryl finally meet again all these years later? Will she make him another grilled cheese sandwich? Will he kill a squirrel for her? This was written very tongue-in-cheek and with a sense of humor. Even the recipes are funny. False Sense of Security Blueberry Muffins instructs the cook to "violently cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and subdued." Some of the recipes sound really good, too, and I will make few of them! I do wonder how they got away with publishing this. It doesn't seem to be affiliated with AMC at all, but Daryl is obviously the Daryl from the show, and many chapters have titles related to episode titles. I have no idea, but I did enjoy this. Keep in mind something that Daryl reflects on: "A world with grilled cheese was still a world worth fighting for." Right on, Daryl. Right on.

    Who knew reading a cookbook could be so much fun? The Snacking Dead tells the story of a few survivors of the zombie apocalypse who are just trying to stay alive and eat some decent food along the way. Every segment of the story is paired with a recipe for a snack that the characters have cobbled together from dangerous grocery store forages and abandoned campsite leftovers. Although the writing itself is only so-so, the book concept is funny and enjoyable. The female protagonist hits pitfall aft Who knew reading a cookbook could be so much fun?

Although the writing itself is only so-so, the book concept is funny and enjoyable. The female protagonist hits pitfall after pitfall, but continues dragging herself through the mud, sometimes metaphorically, sometimes literally. The recipes are given theme titles, like "Nachos of the Living Dead" and "Gratuitous Violence Jell-O." Person after person is killed, violently, graphically, and hilariously. I admit I haven't had a chance to try the recipes yet, but the anecdotes with each are worth the purchase.

    If you like the Walking Dead and have a sense of humor this is the book for you. With just four chapters "Appetizers for an Apocalypse, Eating on the run, Messy bites for the Newly Dead and Last Call." The book offer recipes for parties or everyday meals, there's something for everyone. Some of my favorites are: Gutted Mushrooms with Bacon and Spinach --I love all of the ingredients. Last Stand Skillet Cornbread, a little sweet, but still a tasty treat. Cat head biscuits with Sawmill Gravy--if y If you like the Walking Dead and have a sense of humor this is the book for you.

    I've never seen anything like this "parody in a cookbook". Pure genius! The story is hilarious and gruesome while the recipes make you think twice (is this truth or fiction?). I may use this as an idea for a holiday party. Great story, mouth-watering photos and interesting recipes. 5+ stars for originality. I've never seen anything like this "parody in a cookbook".

    Funny story to go along with the idea of the walking dead. At first I thought I would be too disgusted to even try some of these recipes and while their names can imply something gross there are no pictures that were disturbing. I would be very interested in trying some of these recipes, they look yummy!

    A story based on a very popular zombie apocalypse graphic novel and TV show meets cookbook. I vaguely looked at the recipes in this. I was more interested in the story even if it blatantly copied the storyline and characters from the Walking Dead. The two star rating says it all: it was okay.

    This is a fun cook book / zombie story. The story was fun, and I like how it was integrated with the recipes. I love the food styling in the photographs. There is a lot of oozing, which serves to make the food both appetizing and gory at the same time.

    This clever cooking tome is a must peruse for Walking Dead fans who like to cook. Not a ton of "new"recipes but excellent presentation and cooking tips.

    I don't watch the tv series, so I'm not sure about the characters, but the concept of cookbook with zombie story, is creative and fun. And the recipes are easy enough to make on the run.
