This was a fun, lighthearted book! I listened to it all in one day.
The narrator did a find job. My only critiques are that he made Lisa sound too whiny at times and he should have changed the voices more. When the story line changed characters from Lisa & Jack to the other couple, it was hard to tell who was talking at times.
The story was great. I mean, it's no award winning work of art, but it was fun and an entertaining read. I would like for this to be the start of a series! How great would that be!?!
Well, now the elephant in the room........what is up with the cover? Is that suppose to be Lisa, looking like a burly mountain man? And the cover Jack isn't the handsome shorty from the book.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Maybe...it was a cute story, with a great outlook on zombies, and powerful universities..and how people can change...
When Lisa runs into the police station in her car, she was a delight...so courageous and down to earth...
No, but I totally would...really good narration....2 thumbs up!!!
I could have!!

This is a unique story and outlook on zombies...We have Jack who was murdered by a family member and comes back to discover, that he is now a zombie...he eats dead people!! He escapes to another city and is working for Lisa the owner of a pizza parlor....Lisa is a simple woman, and she accidentally walks in on Jack eating an arm and shoots his head off! lol Well of course he doesn't die, and she gets really freaked out... but curiosity wins over and she learns Jack's story...and they then fall in love!! There is more to this story than that, a conspiracy theory or 2...and an Evil University with a huge supernatural past that continues to this day...really nice light listen, with fun characters and a great flow..very much well worth your time and a credit!

I enjoyed the story, as well as the narration. This was a very refreshing addition to the zombie collection I've collected over the last couple of years. It's a fun, interesting, new, and full of action story that many people would find entertaining.
I liked Jack, the main character. He isn't the "over-the-top" alpha male that's in a lot of zombie books, and seem relate-able in several ways.

The title sounds pretty funny, and there is a lot of humor in this book, but there is also a really good solid story in there. The characters are all engaging, with complex relationships and struggles dealing with being changed into, well, zombies. They can still think though, so it's not the walking dead in that respect. Lots of zombie humor, with a conspiracy about how the zombies came about, and what to do about them. Really snappy dialogue, with a fast paced plot that never gets bogged down, and will have you laughing throughout. Martin Wurst did an excellent job of narrating, really nailing the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who Liked Warm Bodies, either the book or the movie.
I was given this title by the Author in return for an honest review from Audiobookblast dot com. Ok, legalese taken care of.
This book was a good time and I thoroughly enjoyed myself while listening to it. The narrator did an excellent job of breathing life into the story. The characters were colorful and the various voices used to read them really kept me engaged.
I'd recommend this audiobook and to anyone looking for a fun zombie story.
I listened to the audiobook of this story and it keeps you glued from the beginning to the end. This story is written in multiple points of view with each character telling their story of what's happening. You have so much going on and the many different characters brings this story to a ending that is a surprise. The many twist and turns during this book will make you not stop until you finish. What I loved the best in this story is that even with a Zombie outbreak, you can find love in the least expected way. This author's writing of a Zombie tell is unique and surprisedly different which makes this story stand out and keeps you reading or listening until the last page.
Yes, but simply because the narrator did a great job with the story provided. It had to be entertaining before the audio conversion which it definitely is.
I enjoyed Jake, because he's the poster child for second chances even if this is a different kind of second chance than most people would expect.
I have not, but I would not hesitate to if the opportunity presented itself.
The title of my review, or some variation on it. It's the name of a book of zombie parody love songs my mom got me for christmas a while back.
I received the audio version for this book for free in exchange for an honest review. If you're considering this but don't want to read about icky zombie love I would highly suggest you reconsider. It might be an odd situation but it has heart (even if one of them isn't working). I found it very unique from what I normally find myself listening to.
My rating: 4.5 stars
Audiobook narrator Martin Wurst rating: 4 stars

I went into this book thinking that it was going to be a funny and cheesy zombie novel with slapstick humor (I am not sure why I thought this but those were my thoughts). I was pleasantly surprised while reading (listening) through this book that not only was there some humor but it was very well written and very intelligent as well.
I thought this book ended up having an interesting plot line that surprised me and I like how it developed. There were some good twists as well as good humor. I thought the audiobook narrator did a good job as well. He changed his voices for different characters, which helped to differentiate.
My only complaint about the book was the transition between ‘scenes’. I am not sure if it was because of how the book was narrated but it wasn’t always clear to me when we went from one story line to a completely different one. I also though there were a lot of characters. I understood who most of them were but it would help me more if some of the characters were re-introduced or at least explained again, who they were.
There was another thing that I wasn’t sure about and it’s kind of bothering me but I think I understood. I may have missed something in the story somewhere. Was the “Winthrop University” in the book supposed to be Harvard in real life? I understand that there are a lot of South Carolina ties and the author’s note at the end states that she went to Winthrop but I felt a little lost in this aspect. (Unless I understood it correctly).
All in all this was a great, short book and I look forward to seeing future books from Nora Fleischer. Thanks for the free audiobook copy!
Norwegian in a English world!
When i am on the internet i use the name Fro, so all people can say my name. Zombies in Love is a bit the same. It says what it is. It is a story about Zombies in Love. I loved it, the story is FUN. Fun, light and just a "trip". I love books that does not pretend to be something it is not. Nora Fleischer makes a story that i want to finish, and it feels like a fresh breath into Zombies. It is light, almost to light. So you just need some fun? Then this is just for you! 6 hrs and 16 mins goes on fast!
Martin Wurst is almost perfect in this book. He is a 4,4 out of 5, so almost over the magic 4,5 that would get this book full score. He reads this in a right pace, right accent and just the right voice. The only thing negative is that i need some more variety! So that is the only way i could say something bad.

The story in this is actually kind of funny. It’s not in the comedy genre but for some reason it kept hitting my funny bone! I was really impressed, especially since I went into this with such a low expectation.
I really liked both of the main characters. Jack and Lisa both have some issues to deal with but they are much like everyone else trying to make ends meet. Jack has a few more issues than Lisa though, one of which is discovered nearly straight away. He’s a zombie. He also eats flesh. He does still hold onto a job and walk around talking to other people, so give a guy a break, right?!
Lisa now owns her parents’ pizza shop and is struggling to keep their memory alive. She wants everything to be just how they left it, which was not with zombies eating humans in the back store room! The way she discovers Jack is great. I hope I have what it takes to do what she does. What’s weird is that these zombies can heal so although Lisa is a bad ass, Jack heals pretty quickly from his wound. Otherwise, we would have no story.
The thing I did not like about this, and sadly it is prominent, is the school. Every scene with the school had me wanting to fast forward through the book. I don’t know why but these parts, and there are many, seemed to slow the story down. They explain some of the zombie virus (sort of) but other than that, the professor and his entire attitude really threw me off. I still don’t understand that character or why so much of the story surrounds him.
Fortunately, I was more into the love birds than I was worried about the school. It is in quite a bit of the book and I kept having to drag myself back into the story, but it was worth it. I loved how this ended!
The audio by Martin Wurst was very well done although I noticed a few times where a voice of one character would extend to another character. This happens with even the best of narrators so it did not mess with the story but possibly could have been cleaned up a bit. The narration was spot on and all the voices were great. The audio sounded crisp and other than those few points with the voices, I did not notice anything that would mess the story up or bring a listener out of the audio.
In short: Really cute story! I was pleasantly surprised. It still is not my favorite zombie story, there are many greats out there, but it was better than I imagined.
