Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Predictable Zombie Story"
    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
    "Ugh"
    Would you try another book from Jesse Petersen and/or Cassandra Campbell?

    Probably not by the author but the narration wasn't terrible so I couldn't blame Cassandra for that.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jesse Petersen again?

    Probably not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I think the narrator did fine. It was the story that lacked as far as I was concerned.


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

    Disappointment. It could have been a lot better.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother with this one but if you have to read it? Borrow it from a library instead.

    Story
    "Not as corny as it seems & worth the credit"

    I kind of steered away from this one for awhile but it's a zombie apocalypse so I didn't stay away too long. It's not quite as corny as I thought. I've read the entire series now. This one starts off with a marriage on the rocks. Close to divorce actually and ironically enough they discover the world as they know it is coming to an end when folks at their marriage counselors office are not there for "therapy" but a buffet instead. The story follows Sara and her couch potato dead beat hubby David, who spends his entire day playing video games instead of looking for work. Along the way they learn to survive, lose people they know to the "virus" and basically run for their lives. The characters weren't very developed and the story had holes in it but for the most part it was entertaining and I enjoyed it. It was certainly worth the credit.

    Story
    "Awful book."

    This book is horrible, and I do not know why I read the first three in the series. The mediocre, predictable story is made worse in the telling. The character telling the story from a first-person perspective is one of the worst persons I ever met in real life or literature. This woman is immature, spoiled, obnoxious, and unrepentant of her bad behavior. She learns nothing and grows not an inch through the adversity. She thinks little of her reader/listener and constantly implies we are spoiled children who just don't know how good we have it because we do not live in a post-apocalyptic world. The performance is marginal and the editor failed to remove a misread sentence in the third book. I will not listen to further books in this series and I do not recommend it.

    Story
    "Light, fun reading. A bit repetitive though."

    The premise is funny. The dialogue is of course totally unrealistic. This book would have benefited from an editor that made it even shorter--it gets rather repetitive as the premise gets stretched out...

    Story
    "“Thank God for the second amendment.” - J.Petersen"

    For me, MARRIED WITH ZOMBIES (Living with the Dead, book#1) was an ok zombie story with a few humorous charming moments, but not my favorite undead tale by any stretch. The general storyline is pretty much your run-of-the-mill zombie plot; very made for TV/B-movie esk. We have a lab outbreak and the mindless dead comeback to eat the living, the majority of the US’s population falls to these relentless and hungry foe, but not our sassy dysfunctional couple turn badass zombie killing protagonist; they manage to fight off hoards of the living dead against all odds, all the while getting their broken relationship back on the mend.

    Although I appreciated the whole relationship marriage counseling angle, I could have done without the excessive use of the F-word. I get that in a life and death atmosphere of “zombies are trying to eat you”, cursing tends to happen, but there are a lot of F-bombs dropped in MARRIED WITH ZOMBIES.

    In the end, everything just felt very surface to me; the characters themselves are fine, but “fine” is not memorable and nothing really went beyond the top layers. No depth to the main characters or the secondary characters and even the zombies were pretty flat and one dimensional, basic in actions and physical description… Insert generic flesh eating undead here, oh and don’t forget to punctuate it with F-bomb!

    I’m disappointed to say, the whole read was kind of a throwaway for me, only somewhat funny, but not entertaining or unique enough for make me what to come back for a sequel.
