Dead Drunk II: Dawn of the Deadbeats (Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse… One Beer at a Time Book 2) by Richard Johnson

Dead Drunk 2


Dead Drunk 2: Dawn of the Deadbeats is the second book in the Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series by Richard Johnson. The first book was a great read with all the twists and turns in it. I couldn’t wait to get this book.

Charlie, Smokey, Big Rob, Trent, Left-Nut and more return in the second installment. This book not only follows the guys from the first book, but we also get a look at what happened to their counterparts during the bachelorette party and afterwards. New people join up with them.

There are a lot of shenanigans in this book that go beyond the ones in the first book. Trent and Russ end up in a lot of different predicaments that had me laughing through the book. Charlie was caught up in just as many. I did more laughing with this book than I did the first one.  We know that from the first book, the Chinese have invaded America and are systematically killing zombies and living people as well. They aren’t discriminating.

Charlie and company save two of the Chinese soldiers from being murdered by their own captain and they join Charlie. They both prove to be great additions. They don’t speak English just like the others don’t speak Korean. Yes, Korean. It comes out that they are Korean soldiers made to work under the Chinese so it does make sense. 😉 (No, I’m not losing my mind.) They name the soldiers Ping and Pong because it’s easier to remember.

During the course of their journey, a disfigured nun joins them and she proves to be an okay addition to the group. Also, the man who took out Big Rob in a rigged match joins the group against Rob’s judgement. But, he proves himself in a big way. We lost several of the members of the group along the way and there were some other sad points, especially for Charlie and Big Rob.


This is a good book. I especially liked reading about the girls and their misgivings and their journey and how they eventually connect up with part of the group. This book has more characters to follow but it flows nicely from one group to another. The girls are pretty badass and I really wasn’t expecting that. I thought the author was going to make them “soft” and they would die quickly but they didn’t, which I enjoyed. A great book if you want a zombie story.
