Here are some comments left by people who purchased “The G.O.R.E. Score, Vol. 1” from Amazon. The full version of these comments, along with other reviews, can be found directly at Amazon.com by clicking here!

“…Schaab is articulate, funny, and gives you the lowdown in an easy to read and understand format. Good stuff for all the zombie lovers out there.”

“The GORE Score system, along with Schaab’s wit and rhetoric, makes for enjoyable and clearly drawn reviews suitable for all levels of zombie-holics. And make no mistake, the author knows his stuff. The pages are drenched with what can only be a lifelong passion for the horror genre, and it is clear that Schaab can appreciate when zombies are done right and when they are done wrong!”

[The] reviews are straight from the perspective of someone who is in love with the undead (and not in pervy sort of way).”

“You can tell Tony is a true fan of the genre, and that is what makes this book a fun read and nice to have around.”

“If you are a hardcore zombie fan and want to know before you read or watch, you should give The G.O.R.E. Score a try.”

Undoubtedly a great read for zombie enthusiasts looking to broaden their repertoire, this is also a FANTASTIC book for zombie novices like myself. Tony organizes his thoughts in an easy-to-read, straight-forward manner, and keeps me coming back for more…”

I appreciated the wide entertainment spectrum that The G.O.R.E. Score covers (everything from books, comics, and graphic novels, to video games and even zombie music!) A perfect resource for zombie fans looking to expand beyond the standard movies, this book gives some great insight to help open your horizons to new media. Here’s to looking forward to Volume 2!”

Schaab’s quirky sense of humor and realistic, personal writing style had me turning pages from the start. Finally someone realized one can review, good or bad, without sounding like a stuffy, repetitive bore! It’s refreshing to hear Schaab’s take on all sorts of undead media, and his choices range from well-known to unknown, from big-budget to independent. It is the ONLY thing any zombie fan needs to stay entertained. The only thing I enjoy reading more than his pinpoint descriptions of great films, books and video games is his wickedly caustic defamation of the bad ones!”

“Being a novice follower of Zombie culture, I was at first skeptical of Schaab’s opinions and book. After reading only two reviews I had to admit that I was wrong.”

‘The G.O.R.E. Score’ is a very entertaining book. It collects reviews written by the author for his zombie-review website, and it reviews all sorts of zombie stuff: movies, books, comics, video games, and even music, and uses a really unique grading system to show the reader what they can expect to find from every item. The reviews are each a few pages long, a great length to give you enough information about each item without overloading you or making you read through a bunch of irrelevant stuff. Schaab has a style of writing that is easily accessible and actually makes reading the reviews fun! He uses a good blend of comedy, fact, and his opinion to let you know that he’s having fun with the reviews but still takes his zombies very seriously. The book looks great inside and out too, very professional, and with good reason – the list of people who he has quoted as giving him praise has some very impressive names on there! I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to know more about zombies, whether just for fun or because you’re addicted to them. You WILL NOT be disappointed with this book.”

“Schaab’s methodical evaluations of Zombie fictions is informational and on point. Schaab is more than a zombie lover, he’s a zombie loving writer.”

“Regardless of the quality of reviewed material, I always found myself entertained.”

“Perhaps Schaab has family among the infected or maybe it’s a simple case of necrophilia, but his writings easily convey his passion and compassion for the undead.”

…this book [is] a must have. I will be telling everyone within earshot to add this to their favorites!”

“Everything you always wanted to know about zombie culture…and some things you didn’t. Tony clearly loves what he does, and it’s this kind of passion that makes this a must-have book for fans of all that is undead.”
