Sarah and David have survived the zombie apocalypse. They stood side by side and fought mad scientists, the undead, and even bionic monsters...until the unthinkable happened. A zombie bite. But not even that could stop them. Now, with a possible cure in hand, they're headed east, looking for a safe zone behind the rumored "Wall." They're feeling pretty optimistic. That is, until Dave stops sleeping and starts lifting huge objects. Eat. Slay. Love. Because they haven't got a prayer.

"Petersen's satisfying third zom-com shows that the Living with the Dead series has surprising staying power." (Publishers Weeky)

A Zombie Flick With Humor!
I suggest this book to adults that like fun!
Much better than book #2. We continue with the story of Sara & David. The author does a better job with the characters this time. The problem I had with book 2 is these legendary zombie slayers were terrified of situations they supposedly has been in and were successful millions of times. Not a "see they're real characters still afraid even though they are folk heroes in the zombie fighting arena", way but a really? I don't think these characters would be terrified of that situation. I think they'd be nervous but kick butt. They run across a reporter who tags along with them on their quest to make it to the "wall". We don't know if this midwest wall is real or not but supposedly it's there and on the other side - zombie free. Nicole, the reporter catches on to David's weird behavior (don't want to give anything away) and Sara's evasiveness. I mean she's stalkarazzi reporter after all. Sara is carrying the most important item in the world right now. When confronted about her secret instead of being a cool zombie bada$$ slayer who thinks on her feet she's like a coy teenager and can't come up with a lie. So she spills her beans several times throughout the book. (Petersen - please if there's a book 4 we don't see this as a character who has flaws like the rest of us - nope we see this as something that would never happen). They make it to their destination and are pleasantly surprised as well as horrified. I like the way the book ended. A good cliffhanger but resolved alot as well. It didn't just "end" like allot of books I've read. I hate that. Overall the series has its flaws but it is a good listen and you won't regret buying it. If you're like me you want to shake the author a few times but hey who really knows how we'll react during a zombie infestation!
This book is horrible, and I do not know why I read the first three in the series. The mediocre, predictable story is made worse in the telling. The character telling the story from a first-person perspective is one of the worst persons I ever met in real life or literature. This woman is immature, spoiled, obnoxious, and unrepentant of her bad behavior. She learns nothing and grows not an inch through the adversity. She thinks little of her reader/listener and constantly implies we are spoiled children who just don't know how good we have it because we do not live in a post-apocalyptic world. The performance is marginal and the editor failed to remove a misread sentence in the third book. I will not listen to further books in this series, and I do not recommend it.
I loved the scene with the "cult" organization where the main characters were taken in custody and then sent to the pit for punishment. I was really intriqued with how they were going to survive this scenario. Well done!!
Yes, although it took me two sittings...
The storyline and the Action of the storyline. And the love story of the two main characters enduring the Zombie outbrake.
I wouldn't change anything it was well written as it was.
She was able to do the voices of all the characters. I wish it didn't have to end.
Yes very much so.
This book is well worth listening to.
