    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Johanna Parker is an amazing narrator, she has brought such a distinctive life to each character, I don't think Diantha would have been half as enjoyable if I had read it!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Continuity. This series is about Sookie's life and her growth and choices. She always wanted to have a normal life with a happy home and children, that is made very evident throughout the series. She thinks she is denied this due to her being a telepath. Sookie consistently tried to make every guy fit into her ideal life in her head. She was very lonely and didn't trust guys with minds she could hear so vampires seemed a safe choice. She finally learned to trust herself and in the end find true love, someone who would compliment her and fit into her vision of a happy home.


    What does Johanna Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Everything! She has the ability to give life to characters much like Jim Dale, love her!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Loved the fact that Pam and Karen will stay part of Sookie's life, great scene with them.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book and will happily listen to the whole series again!!

    Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

    Marvin says: "New diet trend, become a zombie!"
    "Excellent Story!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's funny, sad and heartwarming and you can't say that about too many Zombie stories!


    What other book might you compare My Life as a White Trash Zombie to and why?

    The Sookie Stackhouse series, simply because of the heroine's point of view, I found that and the southern accent very similar.


    Have you listened to any of Allison McLemore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!!
