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.

Now Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But just because there are zombies, doesn’t mean your other problems go away. If the zombies don’t eat their brains, they might just kill each other.

    "Soft Core Zombie"
    Any additional comments?

    Most of my favorite zombie books build tension and have a sense of impending doom. This has a little of that, the characters seem to escape danger easily. What I do really like about this series is the humor. I love the bickering between Sarah and David and the "marriage counseling / zombie survival rules" that start each chapter. "The couple that slays together, stays together". Recommend this series for a light read, maybe to break up any darker zombie books you may be reading.

    Story
    "Hubby and Wife Road Trip Book"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Married with Zombies?

    Not having my wife sleep away the entire road trip with my boring audiobooks.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Does have a humor component, for witty look elsewhere, but I'm a hard sell when it comes to regular humor.


    Any additional comments?

    Got this book because My wife and I are somewhat fans of zombie movies. However our tastes diverge when it comes to fiction. We often take long road trips, and she is a bit sick of sleeping through my Science Fiction audiobooks. So I got this hoping to not take the drive with a knocked out passenger. I worked. She was very into the story, liked the charters, liked the whole zombie thing, and stayed awake the whole drive. Yes the story was a bit painful for my practical "why didn't you just do this" side, but that in and of itself was a conversation maker. So bottom line, probably not the most awesome zombie fiction out there, but if it keeps the wife awake it works for me. Recommended for those couples who have the aforementioned situation.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Lacks originality.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad story at all but very predictable as much as the storyline goes.

    Story
    "zombie survival with love, laughs and gore!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    The book caught in the first 15 mins. I was pleasantly surprised to fine how well the author put a zombie apocalypse together with what in fact is a story about a couple struggling in their marriage and questioning whether or not they will stay together. I found the story very entertaining and the narrator did a wonderful job with her voices for each character.

    For us ZA lovers or zombie apocalyse for you 'normies' we get our fill of zombie gore and action, with some impressive zombie kills. The humour is indeed dry but works well with the tone of the story. All in all if you like ZA books like me don't be turned off by the title this is far from just a soggy soppy teary love story. Its just excellent fun.

    Story
    "Fun first person look into a zombie apocalypse"
    If you could sum up Married with Zombies in three words, what would they be?

    Witty Zombie fun


    What did you like best about this story?

    I found that Sara the main character is very compelling the story is told from her point of view and while in may books the main character is the glue that hold the funny interesting accessory characters but in this I found myself most interested in Sara and what she had to say. She is a witty and strong character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Following Dave and Sara in their apt realizing what is happing around them and learning to deal with it.


    Who was the most memorable character of Married with Zombies and why?

    .This is told from a first person journal point of view. Sara the main character is smart witty and very honest in her telling of the attack and her thoughts and feelings at the time.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a very fun quick summer read. The whole story is less then 7 hours and that seems to be just about the right time. The story does not feel that it slows down or lingers on too long in so that the pacing is excellent. I have always been a fan of zombie movies and this was my first foray into a zombie book. Now I am a fan of Zombies in book form.
    The narrator Cassandra Campbell does a excellent job in making the story witty and engaging, She makes you feel that Sara is a real person and telling you a story

    What character would you cut from Married with Zombies?


    Any additional comments?

    Believe me, I'm no prude when it comes to using curse words in describing something. This book, however, substitutes curse words for good prose. Yes, dear author, it is actually possible to go overboard with cursing. Also, the performance was way too slowly paced.

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

    if you have ever been in a long term relationship you will enjoy this book even if there were no zombies to make things more interesting. obviously the zombie thing is happening but it is in a semi realistic way and the whole plot doesn't just revovlve around that.

    ALSO all the horrible things u say in your head, the main character does and it is so relatable. you realize how many more people on a daily basis want to kill everyone. lol


    What did you like best about this story?

    the characters narrrations about the simple things that piss her off


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

    the sarcasum


    If you could take any character from Married with Zombies out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    the main couple. they are the kind of couple that u enjoy watching argue


    Any additional comments?

    absolutely worth it

    If you could sum up Married with Zombies in three words, what would they be?

    compelling, entertaining, hilarious


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Married with Zombies?

    When Lisa turned into a zombie and when Dave asked Sarah to help him start a business!


    What about Cassandra Campbell’s performance did you like?

    Her delivery on every part. When the mood changed with the book, so did her voice. I especially love the way she had a different voice for each character so that you really visualize that person.


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

    A sure way to turn things around in a bad relationship is a zombie apocalypse


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed every book the one thing that I was disappointed in was that the last book Zombie Whisperer was not available on audio.

    "The Only Zombie Series I Like!"
    What made the experience of listening to Married with Zombies the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was great and the author was funny!


    What other book might you compare Married with Zombies to and why?

    None, this book was written more for adults in its humor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole book!


    If you could take any character from Married with Zombies out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Hmmm, I suppose the main female character, because she is the only girl that lives the longest! Also the author makes this female character intelligent unlike most authors now a days.


    Any additional comments?

    I strongly recommend this book if your looking for a break from your normal style of books. This series is funny and witty and packed full of action.
