Waiting On Wednesday (47) Apocalypse Cow by Michael Logan



Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose Apocalypse Cow by Michael Logan

 (The Ward)


Expected Publication:May 21,2013 
If you think you've seen it all -- WORLD WAR Z, THE WALKING DEAD-- you haven't seen anything like the three unlikely heroes who must save Britain . . . from a rampaging horde of ZOMBIE COWS!
Forget the cud. They want blood. It began with a cow that just wouldn't die. It would become an epidemic that transformed Britain's livestock into sneezing, slavering, flesh-craving four-legged zombies. And if that wasn't bad enough, the fate of the nation seems to rest on the shoulders of three unlikely heroes: an abattoir worker whose love life is non-existent thanks to the stench of death that clings to him, a teenage vegan with eczema and a weird crush on his maths teacher, and an inept journalist who wouldn't recognize a scoop if she tripped over one. As the nation descends into chaos, can they pool their resources, unlock a cure, and save the world? Three losers.Overwhelming odds.One outcome . . . Yup, we're screwed.

Why Am I waiting?  
Zombie cows need I say more?!? I remember a few years back watching a movie where the cow meat turned people into Zombies. The film was part comedy part "serious" zombie film and combined it was a pretty awesome little film. When I came across Apocalypse Cow on Goodreads I knew it must be mine!! Plus its been far to long since I've had a Zombie book on my Waiting On Wednesday list

Out of curiosity, Have you heard of Apocalypse Cow?  If so, Do you plan on reading it? What do you think of the premise? How about that cover?

  2. This sounds insane O.o I'm not sure whether to take it seriously or not! Lol. Haha. Although it sounds like a nice comedic parody read :P

    I love how reverse this is. Usually it's the nerds getting a make over and becoming pretty and popular. I love how it's otherwise! Great pick!
