I almost quit listening, but I did manage to finish it. The writer had a good idea for a humorous plot, but really didn't draw me into the story because the humor was too contrived and the writing was sub-par. I bought this book because I loved Christopher Moore's vampire trilogy, which starts with "Bloodsucking Fiends", which is absolutely hysterical and I highly recommend.
Say something about yourself!
Most of my favorite zombie books build tension and have a sense of impending doom. This has a little of that, the characters seem to escape danger easily. What I do really like about this series is the humor. I love the bickering between Sarah and David and the "marriage counseling / zombie survival rules" that start each chapter. "The couple that slays together, stays together". Recommend this series for a light read, maybe to break up any darker zombie books you may be reading.
Fun, Quirky, Wouldmakeagoodmovie.
Sarah and David are both strong and intelligent. they look out for each other even though they despise each other. it's fun.
Not having my wife sleep away the entire road trip with my boring audiobooks.
Does have a humor component, for witty look elsewhere, but I'm a hard sell when it comes to regular humor.
Got this book because My wife and I are somewhat fans of zombie movies. However our tastes diverge when it comes to fiction. We often take long road trips, and she is a bit sick of sleeping through my Science Fiction audiobooks. So I got this hoping to not take the drive with a knocked out passenger. I worked. She was very into the story, liked the charters, liked the whole zombie thing, and stayed awake the whole drive. Yes the story was a bit painful for my practical "why didn't you just do this" side, but that in and of itself was a conversation maker. So bottom line, probably not the most awesome zombie fiction out there, but if it keeps the wife awake it works for me. Recommended for those couples who have the aforementioned situation.
Not a bad story at all but very predictable as much as the storyline goes.
Dad introduced me to science fiction @ 5 yrs old, @ 42 I am now a full on zombie horror science fiction geek girl and proud of it !
The book caught in the first 15 mins. I was pleasantly surprised to fine how well the author put a zombie apocalypse together with what in fact is a story about a couple struggling in their marriage and questioning whether or not they will stay together. I found the story very entertaining and the narrator did a wonderful job with her voices for each character.
For us ZA lovers or zombie apocalyse for you 'normies' we get our fill of zombie gore and action, with some impressive zombie kills. The humour is indeed dry but works well with the tone of the story. All in all if you like ZA books like me don't be turned off by the title this is far from just a soggy soppy teary love story. Its just excellent fun.
Witty Zombie fun
I found that Sara the main character is very compelling the story is told from her point of view and while in may books the main character is the glue that hold the funny interesting accessory characters but in this I found myself most interested in Sara and what she had to say. She is a witty and strong character.
Following Dave and Sara in their apt realizing what is happing around them and learning to deal with it.
.This is told from a first person journal point of view. Sara the main character is smart witty and very honest in her telling of the attack and her thoughts and feelings at the time.
This book is a very fun quick summer read. The whole story is less then 7 hours and that seems to be just about the right time. The story does not feel that it slows down or lingers on too long in so that the pacing is excellent. I have always been a fan of zombie movies and this was my first foray into a zombie book. Now I am a fan of Zombies in book form.
The narrator Cassandra Campbell does a excellent job in making the story witty and engaging, She makes you feel that Sara is a real person and telling you a story
Believe me, I'm no prude when it comes to using curse words in describing something. This book, however, substitutes curse words for good prose. Yes, dear author, it is actually possible to go overboard with cursing. Also, the performance was way too slowly paced.
I have been one acquainted with the night
if you have ever been in a long term relationship you will enjoy this book even if there were no zombies to make things more interesting. obviously the zombie thing is happening but it is in a semi realistic way and the whole plot doesn't just revovlve around that.
ALSO all the horrible things u say in your head, the main character does and it is so relatable. you realize how many more people on a daily basis want to kill everyone. lol
the characters narrrations about the simple things that piss her off
the main couple. they are the kind of couple that u enjoy watching argue
absolutely worth it
zombie tales disliked the movies till I read Married with zombies & zombie fallout now i'm in love with Micheal Talbot
compelling, entertaining, hilarious
When Lisa turned into a zombie and when Dave asked Sarah to help him start a business!
Her delivery on every part. When the mood changed with the book, so did her voice. I especially love the way she had a different voice for each character so that you really visualize that person.
A sure way to turn things around in a bad relationship is a zombie apocalypse
I enjoyed every book the one thing that I was disappointed in was that the last book Zombie Whisperer was not available on audio.
