This is a wonderful spin on the zombie genre, and making it a tag-team affair between a struggling couple adds new dimensions to the idea of surviving the zombie apocalypse. Choices someone might make on their own are now turned on their head and challenged by ego, marital strife and cooperation issues, with both good and bad outcomes. The one thing I would keep in mind is that this story can be somewhat graphic (gore, not sex); too much for a younger listener (anyone under 16) in my opinion. But I've already got book two in my Wish List and looking forward to continuing the adventure.
This was a nice quick little story that inserted humor into a zombie apocalypse. While that is nothing new, the only resolution that came from the story was the romance. So, if you are looking for a solution for when the zombies attack, you are looking at the wrong story.
I have the print version but when I found it in audio, I never read it. For that reason, I cannot say.
I liked the interaction between the couple. They were having marital problems at the start of the zombie event and they continued to work through their problems throughout the story. I won't say whether the situation helped or hurt their marriage, but it made for some entertaining reading.
I also appreciated the humor and the way they did things to mentally accept and find solutions for the situation they found themselves thrust into.
My favorite scene(s) involved their air-head neighbor. I don't want to describe them because that's akin to giving spoilers to the story.
I would take the wife. She had so much going on, mentally, that she'd make for an interesting dinner partner.
The narration was great
Near divorce now getting along to save each other
A good book to start zombie listening
The narrator did an excellent job with a funny, gory story. This is the kind of mindless fun that worked well while I was on a long stretch of boring road on my way to Roswell NM. I kept picturing where it would be easiest to defend from a Zombie attack...and out there lots of places would work.
It's not fine literature, it just works when you want something almost silly to listen to and it leaves the story open for a sequel.
I grew up with books....not television.
From starrt to finish, I really enjoyed this book. The dialog and action was believeable, humorous and invoked a rainbow of emotions throughout. I only wish this was a series - I would absolutely love to read more from this author. Fun and interesting - I loved it.
This is by far one of the funniest books I've ever "read". My husband is the one that is into zombies so I really got it for him...but the sassiness and the overall theme that this book takes (a self-help book in the midst of the zombie apocalypse) kept me excited for the next chapter. Now all I am waiting for are the sequels to be available on Audible!
I found this to be very amusing. I love how each chapter starts with a phrase from the couples' counseling and how it applies to the zombie Apocalypse. It is the first book in a trilogy, followed by Flip this Zombie and Eat Slay Love.
The story was just okay and the narration was not even that. The narrator sounded like a valley girl. I couldn't figure out if this was supposed to be a scary book or a corny funny one. I kept expecting to hear "gag me with a spoon" or something like that the way this was performed. The was alot of profanity used in places that did not make any sense at all. I don't mind some profanity, but when the 4 letter word is used as one of the staple words of the book, it makes it trashy in my opinion. If you are interested in this book, it's best if you can get it on a $4.95 sale or another good sale, but I certainly wouldn't waste a credit on it, unless you are into the "valley girl zombie fighter with a small range of vocabulary" type of books.
