    A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Meet Sarah and David. Once upon a time, they met and fell in love. But now they’re on the verge of divorce and going to couples’ counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things: the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client’s throat. Meet the zombies....

    Overall

    Another pretty stereotypical zombie read. The difference and theme the author presents with this one is a couple having serious marital issues and how their personal conflicts come out during a zombie infection. I found a lot of the dialogue to be rather uninteresting. It was nice to see the characters resolve their issues and come together, but the common martial bickering got somewhat annoying. The zombie theme is definitely reaching it's all time high in popularity and several books have really shined. After reading Patient Zero and World War Z, it's very difficult for me to enjoy books in the genre with little to offer. The zombie portions of the story felt copied from so many already out there that I had a hard time enjoying it. Maybe if I had listened to this a couple of years ago I may have enjoyed it more but it takes a bit more to keep me interested in this genre these days. Another thing worth noting is that the male characters all felt intentionally removed of most intelligence. This may make sense due to the fact that the entire story is told from the female characters perspective. I can often hear my own girlfriend's thoughts in her narrative, but it might bother some male readers. It wasn't over the top male bashing, but it's worth mentioning. I'm giving it three stars for some entertaining zombie action and making a good attempt at joining a martial help book with the zombie apocalypse. I might read/listen to the second book, it depends on how well it's reviewed and what she does to make it shine in a genre overflowing with options.
    The narrator is female, which makes sense, and did a good job with most of the characters in the book. Unfortunately the one I really felt she missed was David. The narrator really did a great job with the other characters, but unfortunately I can only give her 3 stars since I felt she missed on one of the main characters in the book. The rest of her voices are great, too bad it had to be a main character.
