    I loved the first book in this series with reservations In the second book the reservations are gone.With comedy the absurd what I look for apart from the obvious it has to be FUNNY is a consistent level I can buy into a level of humour or silliness but I need to feel that it isn t going to veer across the comedy map If I ve bought into a wry cynicism, I don t want it to suddenly become slapstick.In World War Moo Logan maintains consistency It s a sharp, comedy horror that mixes genuine pathos with the laughs and actually circles around a set of surprisingly deep moral questions The only bum notes in the consistency stakes were the three generals we occasionally flit to, and the deportation of a key character.Despite the title the emphasis moves from the zombie animals of book one to the human zombie population, and has less focus on running and killing or dying with politicking There still is plenty of messy destruction though fear not The writing reminds me a fair bit of Tom Sharpe on form I worry that a non British reader might flounder here There are plenty of references to British pop culture politics that would fly right past your average American, leaving them with a lesser read I m guessing that very few Americans know ...

    PISSED UP EDIT I m now just drunk enough to give my own book full marks, even though I m British and subscribe to the down with that sort of thing attitude If I haven t removed the rating by the time you read this, either I have yet to sober up or I was so drunk that I forgot I encountered a sudden burst of red wine induced confidence and gave myself a five starry slap on the back Either way, kids, don t base your buying decision on my rating Listen to somebody objective who knows what he she is talking about.THE EARLIER, SOBER STUFFRead wrote Same thing This, obviously, is the sequel to Apocalypse Cow Twas a lot of fun to write, as I got to work with a larger canvas, take the characters into complex emotional areas and invent combat yoga and cow bombs It is a slightly serious, and less graphically violent, book with wider themes around family, responsibility and governance You ll still find plenty of daftness to keep continuity with Apocalypse Cow, however.Be warned, though this is not a zombie book as such Humans now have the virus, but they are perfectly sentient, if a little grumpy and horny, most of the time In the company of the uninfected, however, they do tend to lose the plot Think Invasion of the Body Snatchers rather than Night of the Living ...

    I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.World War Moo, the sequel to the outstanding Apocalypse Cow, continues the story of bloodthirsty zombie cows running rampant in England In this second volume, the virus has now spread to humans and has infected the entire British Isles The oddball characters and survivors from the first book are called back into action to prevent a world wide outbreak of the virus because of the actions inept government officials and their desire for personal glory and looking out for themselves.This is definitely not your normal zombie book It s a lot of fun, it is rife with droll British humor, it s full of bombastic action sequences I don t think I ve ever read about explosives strapped to zombie cows being led by a remote control car It brings several of the old characters back a few surprises, too , along with a newly develop...

    I am surprised with how the author has taken a ridiculous premise and surrounded with a well crafted story, characters you care about and delved into important existential questions such as our humanity Humorous, but still thought provoking, congratulations to the author, well done

    A fun read.I really enjoyed Apocalypse Cow a few years back, the deserved winner of the Terry Pratchett Prize Its taken a few years but the follow on finally made its way out Like its predecessor the book contains a certain amount of absurdity, the Noel Edmunds look alikes, a Benny Hill style chase , and a leader basing his decisions and actiond on his favourite TV character.Most work, some don t but overall I laughed.Behind all that its actually a decent story It falls somewhere into the ballpark of recent fiction looking at zombies even if itc pointed out they are not really zombies in the propee sense from there side as well The nature of humanity and violence is questioned and throughout you realise the obvious threat might not be the worst one.It was great to see some of the characters again I really enjoyed Geldof in the first book and he is equally ...

    The follow up to Apocalypse Cow sees Britain attempting to hold back the rest of the world from destroying them in order to prevent the virus spreading For the time being, it s contained by the sea, patrolled by military vessels set on shooting anyone who attempts to escape.These are not traditional zombies They are not undead and mostly they act like normal people just much prone to outbursts of anger and having lots of sex Now that nearly the entire population is infected, the virus doesn t need to spread, and the rage only tends to kick in near the uninfected Yet without internet, the rest of the world is being fed stories of the zombie filled land via the media frenzy Popular opinion would have the country nuked, if only the French wouldn t object.World War Moo is full of political satire from nuclear deterrent to immigration, media coverage to African mercenaries and religious fanatics There...

    I m gonna go ahead and add thisSPOILER ALERT Alrighty, that s out of the way The only disappointment I had was it didn t have the same level of humor as the first one, although it did have its fare share of great lines, but that s pretty much the only issue I had Aside from now being forced to wait for another book Onto the spoils, Those last 20 pages brought along a lack of a better word sh t storm of all the crazies I could have imagined And even that I never would have thought of Tony s love for Spock, and his job as a politician, had me waiting for one line the entire book And there was an audible yes accompanied by a fist pump when it happened near the end as a certain character quoted it accidentally And that leading to the selfless heroic act of another character left me crying, quite literally And, let s face it, Geldof proved himself.Also, very happy that Michael Logan did NOT go with the stereo...

    Way back in 2012 I read Apocalypse Cow by Michael Logan I was immediately jealous Why Well, I ve only ever had one idea for a story of my own It was called Grains and was going to be about vegetarian zombies they are scarier than you think, dammit Then along comes Logan with his flashy, crowd pleasing zombie cattle I quickly realised that it was far better executed than anything I could ever hope come up with Damn the man and his bovine mayhem Time passed and my jealousy moved on elsewhere Three years later, and I had finally reached the stage where I could almost look at the book fondly, and what happens Logan s only gone and bloody done it again.World War Moo picks up a couple of years after the events in Apocalypse Cow The world economy is suffering due to the financial drain the British crisis has placed on it Something needs to be done, and it needs to be done soon Needless to say, the military have come up with one very definitive option that will put an end to all this infected nonsense quick smart Will there be a human cost Depends on how you define human, doesn...

    Time taken to read 3 days Blurb from GoodreadsIt began with a cow that just wouldn t die Yep That s right They re still infected, and now the disease has spread to humans The epidemic that transformed Britain s bovine population into a blood thirsty, brain grazing, zombie hordeerr herd is threatening to take over the globe.And there s not much time left to stop it All of Great Britain is infected and brimming with rage The rest of the world has a tough choice to make Should they nuke the Brits right off the map men, women, children, cows and all in the biggest genocide in history Or should they risk global infection in a race against time to find a cure With fanatical infected trying to escape the cursed island, and the Brits ready to defend themselves with every weapon at their disposal, including an intercontinental missile sloshing with infected blood, it may only be a matter of time before the virus gets out.This means war.My reviewI really enjoyed the first book, now book two sees the virus has spread to the humans and the world wants to eradicate Britain before the rest of the world is infected There is little to none media coverage and the world thinks Britain is over ran with zombies Most of the infected are...

    World War Moo is the second book in the Apocalypse Cow series If you ve read the first you know what to expect from this one, zombies, OTT characters taking the mickey out of each other and cows This story begins where it left off in the previous book, the zombie outbreak that started in cows has spread to humans and taken over the whole of Britain which is now cut off from the rest of the world To bring the virus to an end the rest of the world is considering eliminating Britain, rather than find a cure for the disease, and it is the task of a group of individuals, some zombies who have learnt to control themselves, and some humans, to stop this I got this book through entering a competition for the author to put my namesake in the book Therefore there is a Tim Roast in this story, and needless to say I was most interested in how this particular character got on He is the sorry excuse for a government chief scientist, with a V neck pullover, badly knotted tie, and a pair of glasses so ginormous they made his eyes look like snooker balls Thankfully he doesn t get killed so is likely to appear in the next book in the series too Authors, I am available for roles in books Many of the other characters, such as a band of mercenaries that are called upon to infiltrate Britain, in the book are also namesakes of people who entered this competition, and you can tell by the way the author introduces and describes them that he had a lot of fun with it The book is quirky, and has go...
