Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Paranormal, 2013

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".

What the Critics Say

"Allison McLemore's delicate voice and Southern accent give Angel's first-person narration a humorous kick. McLemore excels at bringing Angel's self-deprecating and sarcastic comments to life. Her brisk pacing suits Angel's personality and draws listeners in from the first chapter, keeping them glued to their earphones as she plays up the book's 'gross factor' with drawling descriptions of gooey brains and crunchy skull cavities. She's also good at giving unique voices and mannerisms to secondary characters." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "A very plesant surprise"
    Would you listen to My Life as a White Trash Zombie again? Why?

    I wouldn't mind listening to this book again, but honestly, I'm more interested in getting the next book in the series to listen to. It was engrossing, well written and excellently performed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The intrigue element of the story was not spoon fed to the reader/listener. Well planted and subtle hints led me through a surprisingly good plot.


    What about Allison McLemore’s performance did you like?

    Her voice differentials were clear, and I had no trouble following the characters in dialogue.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I like drawing out my listening pleasure, but I only lasted two days of suspense.


    Any additional comments?

    For quite a while, the title and cover drawing turned me off, and I finally tried it on the basis of the inexpensive first of series deal. When I noticed that there were several books to the series, I decided it might have more to offer than the cover would indicate. I'm glad I tried it.

    "So dumb it's great!"

    Such a lighthearted (kinda) monster story! Easy to listen to, great plot... It's a really comfortable book for people who love something a little gross. Angel is a really cool character and the narrator really brought her to life (haha)!

    Any additional comments?

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this ENTIRE series. It is the best I have read in this genre hands down. I wanted more. I was super bummed when it was over and I still haven't found anything to compare. I miss hearing about these characters - LOL! The narrator is awesome! Do yourself a favor and fall in love with a kind hearted, white trash zombie. You won't be disappointed! =)

    "Light and quirky..."

    After listening to some more serious books, I needed something light and easy. This was perfect. Don't analyze it or take it too seriously. The reader was fun to listen to, the characters were likable and I was happy with the diversion from seriousness.

    Story
    "Very entertaining."

    I've listened to books 1 & 2 of this series and I am fixing to start number three here in a minute. So far they remind me so much of the HBO series called True Blood. Take out werewolves and vampires and insert zombies. The stories are very simular. It's a good thing unless you saw the series and hated it. I really like the narrorater.

    Story
    "VERY GOOD! PLEASANTLY SURPRISED."

    I have always avoided books on zombies. So when I read many good reviews on My Life as a White Trash Zombie I thought I will give it a try. Much to my surprise I enjoyed it very much! Diana Rowland did a very good job. The dialogue was catchy, not vulgar at all and I like the main character very much. She has such a strong personality and was determined to improve herself and get out of the rut! Allison McLemore narrated excellently giving different voices to all the characters. I will be following this series and am downloading immediately.

    "A different take on zombies"

    A very enjoyable book with an ending that was a bit predictable. I finished it in three days, 4.5 stars.

    Story
    "A new fun twist on Zombies!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a new coherent twist on zombies, told in first person mode from the zombie herself. The story is fun, exciting, serious and somewhat believable. This first book is a story of a redneck girl with a looser boyfriend and a redneck father, coping with newly acquired lifestyle, pulling herself out from looser-hood.


    What about Allison McLemore’s performance did you like?

    She speaks the parts with a true southern accent, not the exaggerated TV version of southern. So the language worked without sounding silly.


    Any additional comments?

    "My Life as a White Trash Zombie" is a complete story without the need for more books, but it also leaves the desire to read/hear more about the characters. so, of course, I'm on the second book of the series. Nice job Diana Rowland! Nice read Allison McLemore.
