Only Dead On The Inside by James Breakwell, on my iPad with a first aid kit, torch and skulls.

3.5 Stars


Only Dead On The Inside: A Parent’s Guide To Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse is written by comedy writer James Breakwell, who became internet famous through his Twitter @XplodingUnicorn where he posts about his family. He became well known when one of his tweets went viral after being shared in a Buzzfeed article. Which is probably when I discovered James’s writing. I am definitely a fan of his Twitter, it is always amusing reading about the antics of his family, even if its been exaggerated.

So for anyone familiar with James Breakwell’s social media, this book is exactly what you would expect.

‘There are plenty of guides out there about how to survive the zombie apocalypse. All of them assume readers are young, fit, and unencumbered by children. In that scenario, the only living humans left will be smug, outdoorsy Millennials. That’s hell on earth, even without the zombies. Only Dead on the Inside is the answer for the rest of us.

Only Dead on the Inside blends traditional parenting advice with zombie survival tips, bringing together two totally unrelated genres in a book no one asked for but everyone needs.

If you want to make sure your family is apocalypse-ready, Only Dead on the Inside is your best–and only–chance at survival. No pressure, but if you don’t read this book, your children will die.’ – Summary from Goodreads.

However, in the last couple weeks I was bit by the reading bug and just devoured these books. I will get to Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give another month (probably November), as it was not meant to be this month.

The books I completed were:
