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 with 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.
took a little bit to get into it but wow sounds like my first marriage. ahahahah. we really enjoyed this funny zombie tale. ready for the next one. flip this zombie.
For background, my favorite authors are George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, Ken Follett, Bernard Cornwell, Kevin Hearne, Jim Butcher and Margaret George.
Probably not by the author but the narration wasn't terrible so I couldn't blame Cassandra for that.
I think the narrator did fine. It was the story that lacked as far as I was concerned.
Disappointment. It could have been a lot better.
Don't bother with this one but if you have to read it? Borrow it from a library instead.
This book is horrible, and I do not know why I read the first three in the series. The mediocre, predictable story is made worse in the telling. The character telling the story from a first-person perspective is one of the worst persons I ever met in real life or literature. This woman is immature, spoiled, obnoxious, and unrepentant of her bad behavior. She learns nothing and grows not an inch through the adversity. She thinks little of her reader/listener and constantly implies we are spoiled children who just don't know how good we have it because we do not live in a post-apocalyptic world. The performance is marginal and the editor failed to remove a misread sentence in the third book. I will not listen to further books in this series and I do not recommend it.
Avid audiobook addict!
The premise is funny. The dialogue is of course totally unrealistic. This book would have benefited from an editor that made it even shorter--it gets rather repetitive as the premise gets stretched out...
