    "you definitely need to know what you’re getting in"

    I initially sat back more than a little shocked at Tonia Brown’s book Badass Zombie Road Trip. I went into it with no expectations or knowledge of what it was about, and when the f-bombs started dropping I laughed, paused the book and did some research into what exactly I was getting myself into.

    If you give Badass Zombie Roadtrip a chance, you definitely need to know what you’re getting into.

    First off, BZRT isn’t a post apocalyptic novel per se. There’s really only a single zombie character in the book and he and the other main character are involved in a wacky trip across America to regain his soul. It was sort of stolen by the Devil, you see. In a traffic stop. Sort of.

    Trying to summarize the plot of BZRT wouldn’t do it any justice, so I won’t. I will however cover some of the things you should know about the book.

    Jonah and Dale do NOT shy away from lengthy discussions about sex and gore. I would venture to say that 50% of their interactions revolve around moving the plot forward, and the other 50% are them ragging on each other in a humorous, but potentially very offending fashion. If you’re thin skinned about any kind of racy humor, you probably won’t appreciate their scenes, and they’re the book. While funny and well written, I do think the two character’s are a bit over the top. Intentional as this may be, some of their conversations go on about sex (or in one long section of the book a missing thumb) for a bit too long, and it drags out the story and made it a little less entertaining for me.

    BZRT strikes me as a strong homage to Neil Gaiman’s and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens, and that’s very high praise from me. I would also add that it feels like Tonia Brown channeled Kevin Smith into her writing for this and while I would normally be thrilled for that, it does make the book a strange, off-kilter experience. I enjoyed it, but I can see how this is not the cup of tea for the faint hearted, or for those seeking out a traditional post-apocalyptic story, or one with lots of action.

    Expect crude laughs in spades and you’ll love this book.

    Despite a few moments of audio echo in the performance John Voorhees does a wonderful job being very theatrical throughout. He jumps between Satan, Dale and Jonah with a zeal that’s hard not to enjoy and when Candy the stripper (You knew that was coming, right? The name?) his rendition of her entertains, and her presence makes the book more enjoyable as well.

    Badass Zombie Roadtrip is a trip alright, and I hope you pack well and expect some fun.

    "One heck of a road trip"
    What did you love best about Badass Zombie Road Trip?

    Tonia Brown wrote outside the box.


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

    Not that I remember


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

    I listened to it on a very long road trip from Oh to Tx,so that is a yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Tonia Brown's story.The Narrator did a fantastic job with it.

    "Thoroughly entertaining!"
    What made the experience of listening to Badass Zombie Road Trip the most enjoyable?

    Seriously funny writing, delivered by spot-on performance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jonah's struggle between general nebbishness and the need for action was very entertaining.


    What about John Voorhees’s performance did you like?

    John is extremely versatile, giving each character its own authentic, believable voice. Other voice actors might have a hard time managing that without it seeming disjointed or chaotic.

    The humor is delivered VERY well with his performance.


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

    I laughed out loud a LOT.

    "Definately different"

    I had a couple of rough starts with this audiobook, I was having a hard time getting into in and had to stop listening until the time was right. After I got about a third of the way in to the book I was hooked. Tonia Brown broke out of the zombie stereotype with this one. It is full of dark college humor and cringe worthy gore. Nice combo in my book! But not recommended for young ears unless you want to have really awkward conversations explaining the content, or if you don't have a sense of humor. But if you do, give this book a chance. Just not while eating..

    Jonah and Dale have been besties since they were kids. They are in a two man 'band' together and going on tour. The two of them are polar opposites. Jonah is the nerdy, inexperienced, shy part of the duo- and Dale is the loud, womanizer, obnoxious side. When Jonah finds out Dale has never been to California he decides to make a detour on the way to the next gig in Reno while Dale is passed out in the back seat to reunite him with his estranged father. Bad move. As soon as they cross the state line, they are pulled over by Satan, who takes Dales soul. Jonah makes a deal with the devil for his friends soul, and this takes them on a wild goose chase of a road trip with a time limit. Satan reanimates Dale to keep Jonah company, and to help out along the way. So Dale is a full fledged zombie, hunger for flesh, decomposing (dead skin chafes pretty easily) and digestive issues (what goes in must come out). Along the way they pick up Candy- the stripper, who is only trying to get back home to her father.. right? The trio get in plenty of sticky situations along the way including a dog taking off with an appendage of Dale's, and using feminine hygiene to control the.. ahem.. smell.

    John Vorhees does a great job with the narration. Each character has their own voice, you are never confused about who is talking. He adds in emotion to the characters, bringing them to life. His pacing is good, and he has a pleasant speaking voice that is easy to listen to.

    BAD ASS ZOMBIE ROAD TRIP

    Author: Tonia Brown

    Type of Book: Audiobook - Unabridged

    Narrator: John Voorhees

    Length: 10 hours, 15 minutes

    Genre: Zombie Fiction

    Release Date: February 20, 2015

    Publisher: Tonia Brown

    Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


    * I received a free copy of this audiobook from AudioBookBlast in exchange for an honest review.

    ** This audiobook is not suitable for listeners under the age of eighteen, nor is it suitable for people who are easily offended or who dislike profanity and crude sexual descriptions.

    With that said, this audiobook is hilarious. It is a mixture of horror and comedy. The author mixes those two genres in a way that will have listeners laughing out loud.

    Jonah and his best friend, Dale set out on a road trip to Reno, Nevada. They have booked a gig at a Reno casino for one night. The two friends are a duo and they are not very talented, but they love to perform.

    Dale tells Jonah that the only place he can't go is to California, but he won't say why or what would happen if he did go there.

    With a couple days to spare before their gig, as they are Driving towards Reno, Dale falls asleep. Jonah decides to help his friend face his fears and to drive into California while Dale sleeps.

    As soon as they cross the border their lives take an unexpected turn for the bizarre.

    Suddenly they are on a road trip that involves a zombie, a stripper and Satan himself.

    If something can go wrong, it does and Dale and Jonah find themselves in a race for their immortal souls.

    This is NOT your average zombie story. It is unique. I know that people say that word a lot: "unique". But this book truly is.

    The narration is excellent. John Voorhees has talent in spades. Each character's voice is so distinctive that listeners will assume that there is more than just one narrator. His pacing is spot-on and he definitely has a flair for the dramatic. His depiction of the voice of Satan contains the perfect mix of condescension, disdain and casual evil. I will definitely seek out more books narrated by John Voorhees.

    If you are a fan of dark comedy, this audiobook is for you.

    I rate BAD ASS ZOMBIE ROAD TRIP as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Story
    "Masterful Journey of Fun"
    What made the experience of listening to Badass Zombie Road Trip the most enjoyable?

    What a hoot! Great story, masterfully done. The dialogue and characters are really funny, yeah, relatable, and funny as hell. I have to hand it to both Tonia Brown, the author, and John Voorhees, the narrator, for teaming up to produce this rollicking tale.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Badass Zombie Road Trip?

    Where to start. You have the devil, who thinks the term "devil" is not as respectful, as "Satan", "the Evil One", or "Lucifer". Dale is an extreme prototype of the slacker dude we all know. We love him and hate him. You stick up for him, he shits on you. Jonah is the lovable geek, who is always there for his friend, but always plays second fiddle. Of course, you have the hitch hiking hooker who spices up and complicates things.


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

    I thought I had heard some good voice actors, before hearing John Voorhees seamlessly flow between the characters. Great voicing and characters. John really brought this brilliant story to life. I really like how he played the devil. You know when you find yourself mimicking the devil's accent, that character has made an impact. Fun stuff!


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

    I laughed my butt off over the whole story. I mean, really, you have a zombie road trip, the devil, a geek, a slacker, and a stripper. What could possibly go wrong on this road trip? What is great about this book is that I can listen to any part at random and just laugh. It is so well done.


    Any additional comments?

    Disclaimer: This audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com. This is definately the top audio book I have listened to this year. When I saw the title about a zombie road trip, I had to listen to this story. I was not disappointed. Funny as hell! Several thoughts struck me, this story is kind of like the humorous "Shawn of the Dead", meets Hunter Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". The writing and dialogue is brilliant. Some of you may remember an author, Robert Ludlum, who wrote many thrillers. He also wrote a book called, "The Road to Gondolfo". Rather than the typical thriller, this book was a funny tale from beginning to end. The author somehow was possessed with an infectious joy at weaving an incredibly good and funny tale. "Badass Zombie Roadtrip" is also one of these exceptional books where the author has taken a funny story to a whole other level. In "Badass Zombie Roadtrip" Tonia Brown nailed it, and John Vorhees's voicing was exceptional. I have no doubt that when this book is scripted for a movie, it will be a blockbuster. I will be in the audience, eating popcorn and laughing my ass off!

    "Whacky zombie road trip antics"
    Any additional comments?

    Well, this one was certainly not boring. Lots of action and sarcastic wit filled dialog. With a title like BadAss Zombie Road Trip you can expect over the top characters, whacky road trip antics and plenty of comedy.

    After a deal gone south with the devil, Dale loses his soul and now instead of going to Reno to play a gig, he and Jonah must travel across the country to literally try and save their souls. Along the way they will meet many interesting characters and even end up all douched up in maxi pads and feminine odor control products. Huh? Yep. Hygiene happens.

    The narrator did a great job with this one. Good inflection and comedic timing. Recommended for a light hearted and fun listen.

    *I received a review copy of the audiobook from the publisher/author for an honest review and this is it.

    "Fun Zombie Trip!"

    Pre reading story. When i got my book i received this little message: Please be aware that this book contains a lot of bad language and is not safe for work, home, or anywhere for that matter. I found that message so funny, i had to read the book!
    ___________________________________________

    So this is a funny, funny, funny book! Badass Zombie Road Trip is a trip i will do again! Not ONLY will i do it again, i will do it when i am sad and feel bad. I mean NOTHING compare to Jonah and his friend Dale. Dale of Jonah's need to help, Dale is in a bucket of S$%t of trouble! The 10 hrs and 15 mins RUNS away! I forgot about time and place thank to Tonia Brown! I feel like i am on a roller coaster, and i don't want to go of. So when Tonia Brown ends the boo i want to scream: I want to go again!

    AND not only can Tonja Brown make cool books. John Voorhees can read them to! Wow, what a GOLDMINE we have here! He made me wish i was his friend! He made Jonah's and Dale's journey even more EPIC! What a good reader! He is just so funny, and his timing is just perfect.

    I cant recommend this book high enough! If you like Zombies AND Fun: Well here is that book for you, with much love from Tonja Brown!
