Deck Z: The Titanic
Lists with This Book. Nov 14, Kay rated it it was amazing. There’s a word for books like this. This genre that mixes history with fantasy or horror. Unsinkzble.undead don’t know what it’s called, but I really liked how the authors did it on Deck Z, an alternate story of what happened to the Titanic. An emotionally injured scientist flees Europe with “the Toxic” in his tragic attempt to keep the zombie-inducing goo out of enemy hands and hopefully find a cure for zombieness.
I loved the retro term “the Toxic. The viole There’s a word for unsinkable.undeaf like this. The violence is memorable in the way that makes you think ddck it later, when you’re pulling carpet staples out of the floor or going to the dentist.
Maybe readers younger than 10 might have trouble with the vivid descriptions. But the dialogue flows naturally, and the chapters dart among various scenes on board, making it a quick read. The section illustrations and unsinkable.unddead add to the storytelling.
It’d make a good movie. What I really loved about the book is unsinkableu.ndead I found myself trying to guess what was real and what was fiction.
In this age of instant knowledge gratification, did I stop to look up whether there really were Turkish baths on the Titanic? And yes, there were. I didn’t stop every time something struck me, but the book piqued my curiosity about the Titanic, and I’ve done more research on it. For example, were there Titaniv operators on board?
Was there an officer named Wilde? Did Seck really say, “Be British, my men”? What about this sword of his, named Kabul?
I’m not so sure. But I’ll keep thhe. See how that is? I’m giving the book to my year-old son because I unssinkable.undead he’ll come for the zombies and maybe stay for the history. I read another reviewer who thought it was stupid to have the zombie plot overlay the iceberg disaster. He thought the book should’ve gone completely AWOL from the crash and then use the iceberg story as the official cover.
I think it would’ve been ridiculous to try and get all those survivors to keep quiet about the truth and pretend it was an iceberg. The way Deck Z ended, it’s plausible that many of the people who got in the boats didn’t realize zombies were after them.
The undead kept to the lower decks for much of the unsinkable.undeae, and in the chaos the people on top might not have known exactly what was coming up. But read it and decide for yourself. View all 4 comments. Nov 06, Alex rated it really liked it Shelves: How could I NOT read this?
I went into this book completely expecting it to be a total cheese-fest. I mean, zombies on the Titanic? I’m supposed to consider that a legitimate book? To my surprise, though, this was actually good.
It was well-written and well-researched, and the zombie plot was actually plausible in this context. Being a HUGE Titanic buff, I was expecting to be nit-picking historical details the entire time, but those were actually pretty spot-on. All in all, this was just a fun book. And the ending was awesome! Dec 18, Charlton rated it it was amazing Shelves: When I first picked up this book I thought “there’s gonna’ be zombies on the ship,no explanation”.
However I was pleasantly surprised. It starts out with a german scientist combating a lethal virus on land.
Then he finds out the government he is working for wants his findings to make a biological weapon. He gathers his findings and goes to the Titanic, because what could go wrong on ship with a deadly virus? I had alot of fun reading this.: Jul 04, Annabelle rated it really liked it. I’m quite interested in the Titanic. My younger brother is a fanatic even though he is only 11 years old. So it can be said I know many random facts about the doomed ship.
When I saw this book, I wondered how or even if this book would work. The concept is interesting and unique. Recently I’ve been reading a lot of zombie novels so this tugged at me straight away. It mixes both history and horror together and it works brilliantly. It isn’t over the top and it’s not boring. The novel keeps the r I’m quite interested in the Titanic.
The novel keeps the reader interested with gore and action which is all limited to the closed quarters and halls of the beloved Titanic. This was my main concern, I didn’t know how this could work, how would zombies get on the Titanic? Well it happens much differently to how I imagined and because of that it makes the whole thing possible.
Just the prospect that this could happen is frightening enough but when it’s in a confined space, well all hell breaks loose. The novel begins telling the reader of how Theodor Weiss, a German scientist came across a deadly plague. He takes a victim back to his mountain retreat and tries to find the cause of the plague and find a cure. Once he has extracted the deadly Toxic from the subject, he runs for his life.
He realises that the German government are out to steal the Toxic and use it as a weapon. He manages to get to Southampton dock where the worlds finest ocean liner awaits. An Agent is at his heals, trying to steal the Toxic for the government.
Aboard the ship things don’t go as planned. The stolen Toxic unainkable.undead to affect the passengers turning them into horrible zombies. The plague will spread quickly Weiss and the captain need to quarantine the infected before it’s too late.

Review: Deck Z: The Titanic: Unsinkable. Undead | KRISTI PETERSEN SCHOONOVER
Theodor Weiss is the scientist and the main character of Deck Z. He’s the one who discovered the plague and thinks it’s his duty to find a cure or if that’s impossible get rid of the Toxic before others get affected. He was always trying to make sure people remained safe, it didn’t matter if he put himself in danger he wanted to be sure no one else would be infected.
