    "What happened????"

    I'm still trying to figure out what happened with this book. The narrator (all though the same person) read this book at a snails pass and paused for what seemed like 30 seconds at the end of each statement. I also felt like I was missing information in this book...Like who is this werewolf chick and when did the fiend become super normal. I've listen to the other four unabridged books and still can't find any mention of this women...This book makes me not want to listen to the other four books...

    "Very easy to listen too"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but not a hard core Paranormal fan.This is a very tounge in cheek view of vampire stories


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I find all of this series to be a little disappointing in the last chapter. Feel like it is all rushed and the story line becomes diluted


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

    A totally different experience, she is the character for me. Love listening to her voice


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

    Laugh out loud sometimes


    Any additional comments?

    The series started off hilarious, but lost its way a little

    "Vocabulary"

    Some of these books have hiarious quips and scenarios. However, the "F" word is used so much, it's like fingernails down a chalkboard to me. Note Sookie from the Southern Vampire Series. Both heroines have the "I'm young, I'm maturing, yet my situations are really about me and how I feel" about them. Still, from book to book, Sookie learns and matures. I'm not really seeing this in Queen Betsy, therefore the personality of Betsy stays stuck book to book.

    "Last of the series for me...."
    What would have made Undead and Unpopular better?

    A plot.

    So much time was spent recapping what already happened in the previous 4 books, that there was essentially no plat whatsoever. Not to mention that for people like me who have already read previous books in the series, it was ridiculously repetitive.

    The previous books were cute and fun, but unfortunately, this one knocked me off the fan list. I don't think I'll be continuing this series.

    I believe a story should be interesting enough to absorb me, not bore me. I live reality daily. And many times reality is brutal. So I look for a book that makes me forget. It has to absorb me into the pages. Kind of like going on a mini vacation. I like stories that make me laugh. I like stories that make me look for the next episode.

    "Not as good"

    This one while funny, was not quite as good. And what's up with the books . . . are they getting shorter?

    "Good but not my favorite."

    I am a big fan of this series but this was not my favorite book I have read in this series. It was still good and thank goodness Tina’s voice is back to normal in this book but even though the narrator is good and the same one in the previous books she seems to read a little slower this time. It is almost like she is taking a 3 count between some sentences. It is a little distracting. But I am still a big fan and will listen to the rest of the series. I hope Audible gets the next book that is not released yet Undead and Unfinished soon after it comes out.

    I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.

    "Betsy's Still Funny, but..."
    What made the experience of listening to Undead and Unpopular the most enjoyable?

    The Zombie!


    What other book might you compare Undead and Unpopular to and why?

    The other books in this series. They are all funny, but we haven't seen much growth in Betsy. She is still funny, but she can be a bit on the whiny side too much of the time. Not enough to make me stop listening, but it can be grating.


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

    She's still the voice of Betsy and the gang


    If you could rename Undead and Unpopular, what would you call it?

    Betsy and Birthdays and Zombies, Oh my!


    Any additional comments?

    This book felt a little like filler. I realize sometime authors have ideas that are a little short or wind up under developed, but it still drives me crazy.

    "Funny Turned Annoying (series)"
    Any additional comments?

    I've read many vampire books and I'm always looking for a good series. When I read the first book in this series I thought it was hysterical. I laughed out loud many times at Betsy's rants and witty comebacks. The second book in the series was easily my favorite and I fell in love with other characters like Mark.

    But by the third book I found myself fast forwarding past the rants I use to find funny. The main character Betsy just starts to become extremely annoying. The constant "poor me" rants and whining started to drive me crazy. I only made it to book 7 before I couldn't take what the main character had turned into anymore.

    I don't regret the first couple credits I burned on this series and if you're still digging it by book 3 you may just end up liking the whole series. Enjoy it for the mindless entertainment.

    "Another fun book in this series."

    MaryJanice Davidson continues to keep her readers laughing in this 5th installment of her Undead Series. In this book, Betsy is preparing for her birthday and her wedding to Sinclair. In classic Betsy fashion, she can't quite get it all together. She is continually plagued by her crazy stepmother who keeps dropping off Betsy's little brother for some free babysitting. There's a zombie in the attic. She also faces a huge problem when her best friend, Jessica, starts acting strangely. And everything is exacerbated by the presence of a mysterious group of powerful European vampires.

    "I feel like this author is stringing along readers"


    I love books that run in series, ie. Sookie Stackhouse, Nice Girls Don's,.., etc, but this author writes books that are read in 5 hours and charges more than any other series. This is the reason I stopped listening to her books. She hasn't got near the talent of Charlaine Harris or Molly Harper. I rated the performance high because I like the narrator, and I gae the story and overall 2 because, the story line is good escapism, but, I don't like being taken advantage of or having the characters held hostage by the author.
