    Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she's part-time shrink to a whole bunch of semi-dead people with killer issues. All Megan really wants is to go to homecoming, but when you're trailed by a bunch of slobbering corpses whenever you leave the house, it's kinda hard to score a date. Let's just say Megan's love life could use some major resuscitation.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't know what the tagline would be, but I could definitely see book being made into a movie!


    Any additional comments?

    Thought this might be a cheesy little book, but I loved it! I'm glad I read the reviews and purchased it. It made my long holiday drive enjoyable.

    Story

    Just because someone is an actor does not mean they can narrate a book properly. I wish the series had stuck with the original narrator who was great. I wasn't a fan of the narrators from books 4 and 5, but I got used to the, This one gets more tolerable the more you listen, but as others have said Jason Dohring is pretty monotone. He has a specific pattern of speech fluctuations no matter what is going on. Turner was better at acting out the story, but her accent got in the way for me. The worst part was switching between these two since their styles are so different it accentuated the issue. With that in mind, the story is great and I would recommend, but maybe consider getting the written version instead of audio. When I started listening to it I had wished I had gotten the e-book. Too bad.

    What a great revamp of the Cinderella story. This book combines sci-fi, romance, and suspense and does a wonderful job of it. It kept me interested the whole time and kept me guessing and the narration was excellent. I highly recommend this audio book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....
