Many books written by women get all caught up in who is kissing who and the emotional boyfriend drama the main characters are feeling. This is NOT the case in this book. It is a wonderful fantasy that is not a boring teen melodrama.
What a surprise!
Definitely the lead character, Angel. She is spunky, strong, smart, flawed, vulnerable and determined. I should note that anyone who has a problem with excessive profanity should probably skip this series. While it didn't bother me, the lead character talks like a trucker raised in a bordello.
Hmmm....I wouldn't want to describe it and give away any spoilers.
That's a tough question. While the title may turn some potential buyers away, I've got to admit that it gets one's attention.
I purchased this one by accident and considered returning it without listening to it but decided to at least give it a chance first. I'm so glad I did! It's entertaining and funny with a very likable main character.
i laughed so hard i just loved this fast funny easy take your mind off life and go with it. ready for the next one and the next one. my daughter loved it also. girls got the nack.
Yes, I would listen to this book again. I loved the concept of this book and it had a ton of funny bits to it. Very clever.
I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.
I like how the author mixes hick lifestyle with interesting police procedural details.
Angel of course. Her character is so complex and is constantly changing in a logical manner.
This was my first time. She did a fantastic job with the different voices and mastering the "local color".
I found the overall language and one-liners to be hilarious.
If you want a fun departure from the everyday urban fantasy, this book and this author would be an EXCELLENT choice.
I don't like zombies. They're gross. Angel Crawford feels the same way, which is what makes her story so funny. After waking in the hospital with memories of a car accident, she's told she was found roadside after overdosing. Naked. An anonymous letter leaves her with an offer she can't refuse - a job at the morgue - and she takes it, determined to get her life back on track. But something isn't right, and that's before she starts craving brains.
My Life As a White Trash Zombie follows Angel as she tries to puzzle out what's happened to her and why the morgue is filling with headless (and thereby brainless) corpses, all the while struggling just to get through each day without f*ing up too bad. The story is far from gory, but if it was a movie, I'll admit I might have turned away once or twice. Or at least peeked through my fingers. Above all, it was fascinatingly original and utterly fun.
The performance was top notch, I can't think of the last time the character fit so perfectly and story rolled so smooth. Kudos to the narrator.
Absolutely. Compared to the usual zombie books I read it was soooo different. Great storyline, quite humorous but with a few twists & turns.
Definitely Angel. She'd had such a tough life and this was one more thing being thrown at her, yet she copes.
This was my first Allison McLemore performance, but I found it quite enjoyable.
This is not your typical zombie story. I laughed most of the way through it and it caught my attention from the beginning.
I do not recall ever having heard Allison McLemore prior to this audiobook. For this book, she is one of those narrators who nails the southern accent and the listener is drawn in with no distractions.
I really liked this book, it's light and funny and keeps your attention throughout. I got tired of the zombie genre pretty quick, but this one is a keeper and I plan to buy the next book in this series.
Great, great, great, did I mention GREAT book! I love supernatural stuff, not a zombie fan in general. BUT, this series ROCKS!!! I hope she keeps them coming. Zombie story reworked into a fun storyline that has so many possibilities. Well written and perfectly read. I can actually relate to the zombie, and I tell my friends about this book like, 'yeah, zombies are in every book, so she's a zombie, so what, you should read it.' LOL. It's action packed, funny, doesn't lag at all. Highly recommend!!
I born a long time ago and grew up to be who I am today.
What Anne Rice did for Vampires, Diana Rowland does for Zombies. This book is fun and Rowland's attention and commitment to the character make this not only a great read but a good example of how to write first person fiction. Angel, being "white trash" (in her words) doesn't just walk into a room and describe things in elegant verbiage to keep the action moving, but instead fumbled for how to explain what formaldehyde smells like to someone who doesn't know what formaldehyde is. She even take the opportunity to expand on her character's detailed background. The character evolution, the story progression and this new form of Zombie mythos make for an excellent read.
