    Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage, and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up. But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that it’s not just the plot of the movie that's rotten. Soon she's fighting her way through mud, blood, bullets, and intrigue, even as zombies, both real and fake, prowl the streets.

    Would you consider the audio edition of White Trash Zombie Apocalypse to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the audio edition is better than the print version. I love audiobooks. There is so much you can get done while listening to an audiobook unlike a regular book that you have to have time to sit down and read. The only thing that can ruin an audiobook is the voice and/or performance ability of the person reading the book. I like Allison McLemore, she does a very good job.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's hilarious, gross, and good fun. There were parts of this book were I literally laughed out loud; got some funny looks let me tell you. Plenty of action, intrigue, and personal drama for those that like those aspects as well.


    What about Allison McLemore’s performance did you like?

    Allison McLemore has an enjoyable voice to listen to and does a decent job of distinguishing between different characters by making her voice sound different when each character is speaking. Those are two important skills that unfortunately not all audiobook performers have though you would think they would be the first thing you look for before hiring someone for that job. I have bought audiobooks in the past that I absolutely could not stand to listen to because the persons voice was just so annoying or I couldn't tell which character was speaking because they all sounded the same. My point is, that is not the case when Allison McLemore is narrating an audiobook. She's very good at her job.


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

    The movie extras aren't the only Zombies wondering the streets.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope this is not the end of the series and there will be many more books to enjoy.

    The loss of control. The fear of desire. Allie always thought that mysteriously sexy rancher Caleb Johnson wanted her as much as she wanted him. But since he never acted on it, she was ready to admit defeat. Until the night she was attacked by a vicious wolf, only to be rescued by another. In the triumphant, bloodied male, there was something Allie recognized---the baritone growl, the mesmerizing eyes, the inexplicable animal attraction. Her savior was Caleb.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe someone who hasn't read Twilight or soemone who hated Twilight and has no taste.


    What was most disappointing about Sarah McCarty’s story?

    It is a complete Twilight knockoff. The story line is so similar it's disgusting. She even uses some of the same names. It's such a bad knockoff that I honestly think Stephenie Meyer should sue. There is no way anyone who has read the Twilight series couldn't see how unoriginal this book is. This woman is not an author she is a copycat. I thought plagiarism was illegal.


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

    Tavia Gilbert is awesome and I have loved every other book I have listened to that she performed. The horror of this book was not her fault.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment. And yes a little sadness. Anger on behalf of Stephenie Meyer and Twilight fans everywhere. Disappointment is this author for her unoriginality. Sadness that someone could do that to another person.
