Sleep, Think, Die
The zombie apocalypse: When a little knowledge is a dangerous thing...
Picture this: you’re sitting in a bar minding your own business, having a quiet drink or two, when trouble steps in off the street. A shambling wreck stumbles over the threshold, bloodied clothes torn, muttering incoherently. Just another idiot who doesn’t know when enough is too much. You raise your glass, take another slug. It’s okay, security can handle it.
But then over by the juke box a woman screams, a man swears loudly. You look up to see the barman drop the pint he’s pouring and back off, pale and shivering. Maybe you should turn around and take a closer look…
Then the world goes crazy. Before you know it, you’re shoulder to shoulder with security, fighting a wave of undead. Someone throws you a cue – a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘killer pool.’ When it’s over, there’s only four of you left; you, two hard men and the terrified girl you find hiding beneath the corpse of her boyfriend.
So begins the story of a new kind of world; where the dead are far more ambulant than they should be, and the living must walk amongst them, fighting to survive.

"5 out of 5 stars A great zom poc story
By amanda Davies on 8 November 2017
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book, it’s nice to see how different authors put different twists on the zom poc. If you like apocalyptic stories and zombies then this is definitely worth reading. Looking forward to next book."
Thank you to the reviewer, P.S Winn.
"4 out of 5 stars Great action and dialogue in a different type of zombie read.
Interesting read and for a longer story it goes by quickly. I am not really a zombie fan, but the author has taken your normal tale of the undead and added a twist. When Zombies invade it seems the living being smarter would have the advantage, but what if that wasn't quite the scenario. What if the undead still carried a bit of intelligence in those brains thought empty? People, like Lavender, Bumper, Gasher and Carson are going to find out.The author has written an action packed story but this novel is more than that. This novel will make you wonder what would you do and maybe be a help when those zombies enter your world."
Thrilled to get a five star review for 'Sleep, Think, Die.' Thank you so much to the reviewer Sgtivypieon, not just for buying and reading the book but for taking the time to review. Thank you.
"5.0 out of 5 stars Well written and easy to read
By Sgtivypieon 4 October 2017

I read a lot of zombie and post-apocalyptic fiction and they can very easily become either extremely gruesome or too detail heavy. However, this new book by SP Oldham is very well written and sits nicely in the middle of the road making this a very enjoyable and easy read. I would find myself looking forward to jumping back into the action with the characters and wondering what would happen next which is always a sign of a great book. Set in the UK so is a bit more relatable for us UK readers. A unique twist on the zombie genre with intelligent zombies that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I'm really looking forward to the sequel. Well done to the author!!
A great review left for 'Sleep, Think, Die' on Amazon today. Thank you so much to the reviewer, Nat 87.
5 out of 5 stars "Excellent read! I read a lot of post apocalyptic and Zombie books and this one is up there with the best.
The characters are great, the narrative fast paced and the zombies well written (although gruesome as expected).
I particularly like that's uk based so there are less guns and ammo, but more creative ways of dealing with the zombies.
I have finished the book with the need to follow up with book two, so wait in anticipation of the sequel!"
3.5 star review from Ashley Goss. Thank you! (You can find Ashley on Facebook here: Facebook - Ashley Goss)

4 stars HOLY CRAP!
By ashley goss on August 20, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
HOLY CRAP! I really enjoyed this book. My favorite characters were Lavender Gin and Bumper. Lavender Gin seems like a DUMB BLONDE, in the beginning, hiding under her boyfriend's corpse but then proves herself useful throughout the entire book. Bumper, I just loved him since he first showed up in the book. I loved the take on the Thinker zombies in the book. It was a great twist to the regular boring zombies you see on TV. I say great job to the AUTHOR.
I would definitely recommend this book.

I loved this book! Can't wait for the next one. By the end of the book, there are some you hate to see die and others you hope will.
I would suggest this book to any zombie lovers out there.

Sleep,Think, Die by S P Oldham
About the book: The dead are beginning to overrun the living. They walk side by side. Is the world over? Can things be saved?
Review: I’ve read a few of the author’s other works but they were shorter. However, I think I enjoyed this one more because it was longer while at the same time still being to the point without all the unnecessary filler. I would definitely recommend this to those who like supernatural.
4.5 out of 5 stars.

Stumbled upon this book and glad I did. It is not your normal zombie book and worth reading.
By Jeanette Styles on 30 April 2017
Another great book by S P Oldham and one which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have watched many a Zombie movie, but I cannot recall that I have ever read a Zombie story before. If all Zombie books are as good as 'Sleep, Think, Die', then I will be wanting to read more. I am not going to spoil one's enjoyment by writing about the story, but I do recommend this book.
I would like to thank the author for sending me a free copy and this was my honest review.
5 star review by Sara Knight on April 25, 2017
Thank you for a great book, and I believe you are on your way to becoming a great novelist
Five Star review from Liz Llewellyn: "Well, what can I say? I have read Wakeful Children from SP Oldham and really enjoyed it so as I'm a big fan I had high hopes for this book. I enjoy this genre of books and have read many different authors and I can honestly say this was BRILLIANT! A chance encounter with 4 ragtag zombie killers saves Carson's life and changes it irrevocably. Throughly engrossing with a fast paced narrative which pulls you along to the end. I can't wait for a sequel ( hint hint SP Oldham) as i want to know where the story , and Carson, go from here. Cannot recommend highly enough."
Five Star review from 'Katie:' "Engaging story, beautiful characters, Awesome new twist on Zombie story. highly recommend it!"
Four Star Review from Aly:"This book was more exciting and more fun to read than I thought it would be. I don't read tooo many zombie types books but the ones I do read are ok. This one was better than ok. I enjoyed the names of the characters some unique ones! I think this book had a great idea about zombies too they had "Thinkers" in this book that was a new twist for me. Great book..."
