    I read an ARC of this novel. Authors Nicholson and Warren took every cliché from bad horror movies: Appalachia, local yokels, evil developers, dippy do-gooders, youth camps, troubled teens, monsters and really bad cuisine, ran off to commit unspeakable acts of creativity upon them and wrote the flat out wildest and weirdest horror novel I've read in a long time! Take my word for it, this is the most fun you can have in the woods without licking the wildlife! Highly recommended! I read an ARC of this novel.

    I went to camp to skate right by, the choice I made and get real high. I bought and puffed on so much weed, that I couldn't get it up to do the deed. The guts and gore did make me puke. and I dropped my gun unlike two-hand Luke. I ran and fell and bumped my head. Couldn't get back up and now I'm dead. They wanna take my land, they want my money. I sit and eat their fingers and think that's funny. by Nikki I'm told this is a fun romp and I'm sure it would be if I had nothing else to do and watched it on TV.

    This book was so much "fun"--at least for someone growing up on Friday the 13th movies! It had a little bit of everthing thrown in--I don't want to get into "spoiler territory", so I'll just say that it successfully combined elements from many different horror scenes into one, bloody rampage. Recommended! This book was so much "fun"--at least for someone growing up on Friday the 13th movies!

    Gosh.... I wanted to like this novel The era, the subject, the type of evil this book was about.... all these intrigued me before I dug in. Problem, for me at least, was that it was boring. Typical characters, typical zombie/infection tale without a new take on the genre. Sigh....even the dark humour was not enough for me to stop counting the pages to the end.

    A lot of reviewers have said this read was fun and it was for me as well. It was pretty much what I thought it would be, but perhaps even more twisted in parts. My only real disappointment was the ending was a bit abrupt - I had plenty pages to go and then it was over - the remaining pages were excerpts and book descriptions. Not a total buzz kill, but still kind of a bummer. "...torn cheek flapping from his mouth, a dog with a piece of bologna." That line alone is worth a half star. 3.5 Stars an A lot of reviewers have said this read was fun and it was for me as well.

    Campers craving meat. Entrails frying in the pan. Firewood, chop choppy! As a fan of bad horror films, I can appreciate what the authors of Meat Camp are trying to do. A few of the characters and scenarios were very unique and creative, particularly old, crotchety Delphus, and Booger the mess cook. The book also packs a lot of gore for your buck for a shorter novel. All in all, while reading I felt like I had been through the story, or similar stories many times before.

Now, how many of you would welcome the opportunity to read something totally new and unique in the zombie sub-genre? Good, that's what I thought. You're in luck, because Scott Nicholson and J.T. Warren have conspired to bring you what is really a very clever story that scarcely even uses the word "zombie", and the "things" that act sort of like zombies are so out of the ordinary, that you might even wonder if there isn't a better name for them. For one thing, these critters can climb trees. When have you ever heard of a zombie climbing a tree? Then again, they can swim very well, and quite faster than a canoe can be paddled across a lake. I don't want to give away anything, so I'll just stop with those two fairly major divergences from the zombie norm. (No, his name isn't Norm, I just meant... oh, never mind.) This story originated as a script for a "B" movie. I personally would love to see this made into a movie. I would be disappointed if Hollywood tried to turn it into anything other than a "B" movie, because the best "monster" movies, since the advent of the moving picture show, have all been "B" movies. But in the meantime, you can pick up this book and read all about it. It's a great and very creative story. It's obvious the two authors had a lot of fun working on this. YOU will have a lot of fun reading it. So what are you waiting for? This is just the story you need to read in between all those heavy, serious tomes you may be working through at the moment. Not only is it a fun story, but it actually has a legitimate plot, too!

    A mix between a camp slasher story, a killer, and zombies! I loved the idea, it was a fun twisted ride! I didn't get to know the characters very well, except for a few...and some plots are immediately destroyed as more people died. I wonder if there will be a sequel..as one monster still lurks.

    Loved the gore! Not really any character development, so it's hard to feel a connection with any of them. That being said, I did like the Veterinarian couple. Loved the banter between them. The old man was a funny character also. Unknown characters kept showing up as the infected. They were not mentioned in the beginning of the book, so when they do show up, you're left scratching your head. Wondering who they are. Plus, the book ends abruptly.

    Horror Bookworm Reviews

    Meat Camp is a great throwback read to the B Movies of the 70’s. The characters are a genius mix of all creatures great and small thrown into a mix bag of horrific turmoil. An enjoyable read from the beginning blast to the unpredictable ending. The reader will think twice about attending a sleep away camp wearing knee high tube socks, tennis shoes and short shorts.

    As much as I love this author, I was kind of disappointed with this book. It wasn't a page turner, because it was so easy to figure out what was going to happen next. I am typically a fan of horror, but this one let me down. As much as I love this author, I was kind of disappointed with this book.

This book is filled with scary if you’re scared of flesh eating zombies that never die. The description in here was almost too much for my stomach to handle. Almost. I kept going. The visuals were painted nice and clearly. I love a good freaky could it actually happen scare (come on, we all have heard about the “zombies” laced on bath salts or whatever it was, it could happen, I think, maybe, who knows!) me type of book. I think the cook was my favorite character. He was humorous – in a freaky sort of way. There are so many characters in this book that are woven together in an intricate way that makes sense and is needed in this type of book. Imagine a slasher film, you need a lot of disposable (yet they weren’t really disposable) characters for the slasher to eat kill. Kind of twisted I know, but this book was fun, in a way that only zombie books can be fun. Did it knock the red church (review here) off my list of favorite books by Scott? No. That’s still my favorite. You have to have read that book to understand why nothing has yet knocked it off the top of my freaky book list yet. Find The Red Church on Amazon here . It did however stick J.T. Warren on my list of authors I need to check out. He did an awesome job with this. It was just a really awesome, scary, make me think twice about going camping story. Not that I ever went camping before but I am sending my 2 oldest kids off to camp this summer. Thinking twice about that now. I definitely wouldn’t recommend reading this book while eating, which I attempted to do when I was in the middle of the book. I never did finish my supper that night. However, I would recommend for a night when you feel like wondering about every creak and moan in your house. Scott and J.T. will leaving you wondering if that infection could possibly break out near you.

    I've always been a huge fan of slasher movies, especially the Friday the 13th series. So when I found out Scott Nicholson and J.T Warren were writing a horror novel set at a camp, I was obviously excited. This book definitely feels like it is inspired by some of those great movies, complete with plenty of memorable moments and cheesy one liners, and I mean that in the best possible way.

So when I found out Scott Nicholson and J.T Warren were writing a horror novel set at a camp, I was obviously excited. This book definitely feels like it is inspired by some of those great movies, complete with plenty of memorable moments and cheesy one liners, and I mean that in the best possible way. It's not all homage though, I won't spoil anything, but the book quickly takes a sharp turn away from those slasher expectations, keeping the fun camp vibe, but mixing up everything else. As the book starts you are introduced to characters that all feel like they'd fit perfectly in any of the old slasher films, the virgin girl, the pot smoking sexed up teens, the counsellors etc. However the authors do a great job of keeping the characters from feeling like two-dimensional stereotypes. The virgin is not the too innocent, goody goody you'd expect, but instead a woman trying to prove her inner strength to herself as well as to her mother, and the bumbling sheriff is actually haunted by his past failings, and pushed by a strong urge to attempt to redeem himself. None of this however is to say the book takes too much time setting up the characters or the backstory. The book is definitely not the deliberate style of horror that slowly builds to scares, instead it is the fast paced "fun" variety. In fact I devoured it in two sittings, only stopping the first time because it was 2 a.m and well past my bed time. If you're looking for gore and tension, this book has plenty. From the very violent deaths to some truly memorable gross out scenes, including one I won't spoil involving a frying pan that had me literally cackling out loud with delight, while also grimacing in disgust. Lastly, I've read some collaborative books that have felt a little off, like the two authors weren't quite in sync with each other. I'm pleased to say that is not the case here. The book felt seamless and natural, and if I hadn't seen two authors listed on the cover I wouldn't have been able to guess it was a joint effort. All in all, if you like your horror violent and fast paced this is one you won't be able to put down. Highly recommended.

Old man Delphus and his daughter open up a camp for 'at risk' teenagers on their land, trying to keep the taxman at bay. A billionaire land developer is looking to buy the land at a steal but Delphus and his daughter are proud. They don't want to sell. But, when an infection starts running rampant through the camp, determined corporations will be the least of their worries. Something's turning the teens into flesh eating monstrosities, nearly impossible to kill. Will Delphus, his daughter, and camp counselor Jenny survive the night? Take the dark and wooded setting of something like a Friday The 13th and add zombies to it and the result is Meat Camp. What you get is a fast paced, sometimes funny, gore fest where anybody could die at any given moment. The writing is fluid, the gore is vivid, the action is unrelenting at times, and the characters are well fleshed out considering the book is on the short side. Overall it's an entertaining read. Why only a 3.5 then? Zombie books are all over the place these days and it takes something truly unique to pull away from the rest of the pack. While fun, Meat Camp felt a bit familiar. The reason for the infection is never explained, although it's not too hard to figure out what caused it when you read it. And in typical zombie fashion, people get bit, turn on other people, turn them, people fight, get trapped, do anything they can to put down the undead, wash, rinse, repeat. Despite some different themes (camp for troubled kids, etc, etc) the book felt a bit 'been there, done that'. Not entirely a bad thing, but I was expecting something a little different. Still, for fans that gotta have their zombie fix, this should be right up their alley. I'm not familiar with J.T. Warren, but I know Nicholson's work well, and for fans of his, his fast paced, witty style is in evidence so they should find something to like in this as well. A solid 'good' on this one.

    MEAT CAMP is a great, easy, fun read. What I like about Scott Nicholson is his ability to bring characters to life. This short novel was no disappointment. The sheriff has issues with courage, the locals don't respect him, Delphus is a sloppy coot, his daughter is trying to hang on to their property by using it as a camp for troubled teens, and there is a bad guy trying to buy up the land for condos.

The story is well edited and the prose is crisp with natural sounding dialogue. The plot moves fast, as before I knew it, I was already 3/4 done. Well done, guys, I really liked it! True, it's a bit campy, but that's the appeal. It's not as gory as it could have been, but for this type of book, as Goldilocks said, it's just right. One scene has a boy caught in a barbed-wire fence with a zombie buddy jerking his trousers off that I found particularly chilling: "The strand cut off his air. He screamed with all he had, which wasn't much, and hoped he would pass out and die. Just let it be quick, he thought. It wasn't." I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Scott Nicholson knows I always say what I feel and I never give a good review for a book I don't like. Check some of the other reviews I have given Nicholson. Not always so good. This one is worth a read!

    I should have known better than to enter the zombie stories with a book called "Meat Camp", but at the time, it seemed I would enjoy it. I must say, until chapter sixteen, I struggled with the book. The characters were like drawn from a Class B horror movie. After that, the pace begins to quicken and it's a fast read. My dissapointment still remains. I rescue those moments in which we have glimpses at the boys's lives before the infection, but the attempts at humor were kind of lame for me...

I'm not much for zombie books but I do love horror and the combination of the writing and the story and action/thrills made this book a winner.

    I'm a sucker for summer horror flicks and this was a pretty sweet preseason fix. Do you like a creepy Crystal Lake-like setting? How about a group of juvenile misfits, a killer virus, & mutants running rampant through the woods? If so, you'll love Meat Camp. It's chock-full of fun characters, snappy dialogue, humor, and death, of course. I read it in a day & highly recommend it to fellow horror fans. Kudos to Warren & Nicholson for a great collaboration!

How about a group of juvenile misfits, a killer virus, & mutants running rampant through the woods? If so, you'll love Meat Camp.

    Ahh. Summer. At a camp for troubled teens not everything is what it seems. Come for the cabins, boating, and hiking and stay forever. Literally. You see there's zombies in the woods and ain't no one getting out alive. The authors took the story and wrapped it around a campy horror movie - intentionally. A well written and enjoyable read. If you are a fan of 80's b-movie horror, give this a try. Ahh. Summer. At a camp for troubled teens not everything is what it seems. Come for the cabins, boating, and hiking and stay forever.

    I loved the story. A remote location in the mountains and something different than your run of the mill zombies. The attempt at humor grew old after the first few chapters and took away from the scariness of the story, especially when the action really picked up. All in all it was a good story and definitely reminded me of some of the B horror movies I liked when I was younger.
