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)

    "Depicts Zombies in a new light"
    What did you love best about My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    I loved that Angel, as a zombie, still retains her human personality and proves to be sweet, smart, and has the ability to grow and improve herself despite being a newly turned zombie. She is not a mindless killing machine as in most zombie themed novels. A refreshing new angle for this subject.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angel is my favorite character.


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

    This is my first listen to Allison McLemore's work. She was a great choice for this book, I will be looking to find more of her readings in the future.


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

    Yes, I did not want to stop listening to it. The negative to this is that I went through the first and second book so quickly that Ill have to wait for the third and it feels as if time is dragging until it is released.


    Any additional comments?

    I would suggest this for anyone looking for a fun, smart and entertaining read. And I agree with a review Ive read here that compares this to a Sookie Stackhouse feel, if you enjoyed S.S. then Im sure you'll be happy with this one, too.

    "Fun and interesting"
    What made the experience of listening to My Life as a White Trash Zombie the most enjoyable?

    This book is a little farfetched, but it is a really fun book. The reader is great at getting the characters feelings down. I cannot wait to start the next book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angel is great, sassy and fresh.


    Which character – as performed by Allison McLemore – was your favorite?

    Angel-Allison gets the white trash attitude down pat. She also conveys all the other characters different ways so there is never any confusion as to who is talking.


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

    I would have if I had the time.

    "Zombie's that can live among us... hmmmmmm"
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Life as a White Trash Zombie to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version.


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

    If I had to compare to another book it would be Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but the characters in this book are able to live among us!


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

    No. But she did a fine job.


    If you could rename My Life as a White Trash Zombie, what would you call it?

    The name is perfect and "made me look"...


    Any additional comments?

    I have already added the sequel to my wish list.

    Enjoyable, easy listen. If you love Molly Harper's Vampire series you'll like this too. Hoping for sequels! Full marks to the narrator too.

    "Surpringly good"
    What did you love best about My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    The plot line.


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

    Mo I avent, I think her voice is perfect for the story.


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

    Lol some parts made me laugh


    Any additional comments?

    I would reccomend this book to anyone looking for a good read. This book isn't for someone looking for a profound read, it's more of a "hey why not" read. I actually downloaded the second book to this series and hopefully it's a long the same lines. The author is imaginative.

    "BRAIN CANDY... fun!"
    What did you love best about My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    As a rule I don't like Zombie stories. However this story was fun. The author re imagined the genre. The narrator became the character, she nailed the southern accent and brought the story alive.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator did an excellent job of becoming the the viewpoint character through whose eyes the story is told. This narrator needs to be hired for more fiction narration.


    Which character – as performed by Allison McLemore – was your favorite?

    The main character.


    If you could take any character from My Life as a White Trash Zombie out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Don't be ridiculous, this is a piece of fiction.

    "I liked it."
    If you could sum up My Life as a White Trash Zombie in three words, what would they be?

    Funny. Different. Brains.


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

    A similar flavor to The Sookie Stackhouse books but a more solid story.


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

    Only the second book in this series which I enjoyed as well.


    Any additional comments?

    The story and the telling was fun and solid enough. Good to listen to while I am working on projects. I liked the reader, though I really didn't care for her foreign accents which were thankfully few and far between. I recommend this for sure.

    If you could sum up My Life as a White Trash Zombie in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, lighthearted, funny


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angel is the obvious choice. She is just plain funny!


    Which character – as performed by Allison McLemore – was your favorite?

    The narrator did a wonderful job! She portrayed Angel's colloquialisms which just made the listening so enjoyable. I don't think I would have enjoyed reading the book as much as I have listening to the book.


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

    Forget the vampires, this little zombie rocks!

    "mystery- drama from the perspective of a zombie."
    What did you love best about My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    I've listened, read and watched different plots of the zombie apocalypse. I thought this would be a nice change of pace. First of all this in no zom-apocalyse book. More like the old vampire novels where they hide in the plain sight of the public going on with their daily lives feeding in secret. Only think zombie instead of vampire and brains instead of blood. This book kept me listening and not wanting to stop. The main character, Angel Crawford, is well developed. The 21 year old is a drug abusing highschool drop out after an OD she gets a second chance at life as a zombie. lol I really enjoyed the mystery part of the book keeps you guessing right to the end.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    Angel's colorful vocabulary is one thing. And "Zombie Super Powers, Activate!" lol


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

    I have not listened to any of Allison McLemore's other performances, but I think her voice suits the character.


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

    I laughed a lot through out the novel. But there's parts through out the book that had me angry at the situation and characters in the book. Like a drunk abusive father or useless druggy boyfriend.
