Publisher's Summary

A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Meet Sarah and David. Once upon a time, they met and fell in love. But now they’re on the verge of divorce and going to couples’ counseling.

On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things: the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client’s throat. Meet the zombies.

Now Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But just because there are zombies, doesn’t mean your other problems go away. If the zombies don’t eat their brains, they might just kill each other.

Married with Zombies

This book was very interesting, and funny. The marital issues went perfectly with the zombies. The only bad this I have to say is the story was way to short. It should of had at least double in length of what it is now.

Humor+Zombies=Awesome!

Who knew that the apocalypse could save your crumbling marriage? This book is hilarious and gross and I loved it. Writing is a brutal field but if success is writing a story that makes people smile and gross them out, Jesse Petersen is an MVP in my book. I know bad pun :/

Meh - Mediocre writing gets repetitive.

I almost quit listening, but I did manage to finish it. The writer had a good idea for a humorous plot, but really didn't draw me into the story because the humor was too contrived and the writing was sub-par. I bought this book because I loved Christopher Moore's vampire trilogy, which starts with "Bloodsucking Fiends", which is absolutely hysterical and I highly recommend.

Soft Core Zombie

Any additional comments?

Most of my favorite zombie books build tension and have a sense of impending doom. This has a little of that, the characters seem to escape danger easily. What I do really like about this series is the humor. I love the bickering between Sarah and David and the "marriage counseling / zombie survival rules" that start each chapter. "The couple that slays together, stays together". Recommend this series for a light read, maybe to break up any darker zombie books you may be reading.

Hubby and Wife Road Trip Book

What was one of the most memorable moments of Married with Zombies?

Not having my wife sleep away the entire road trip with my boring audiobooks.

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

Does have a humor component, for witty look elsewhere, but I'm a hard sell when it comes to regular humor.

Any additional comments?

Got this book because My wife and I are somewhat fans of zombie movies. However our tastes diverge when it comes to fiction. We often take long road trips, and she is a bit sick of sleeping through my Science Fiction audiobooks. So I got this hoping to not take the drive with a knocked out passenger. I worked. She was very into the story, liked the charters, liked the whole zombie thing, and stayed awake the whole drive. Yes the story was a bit painful for my practical "why didn't you just do this" side, but that in and of itself was a conversation maker. So bottom line, probably not the most awesome zombie fiction out there, but if it keeps the wife awake it works for me. Recommended for those couples who have the aforementioned situation.

This is such a surprise! Fun listen

Where does Married with Zombies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I don't rank them - too many books and so many wonderful narrators and authors! When I finished this one I immediately downloaded the other two by Jesse Petersen's in the audible web and enjoyed them all.

What did you like best about this story?

couple's interactions - making me buy in to the ridicules world while normal fights and make ups

Which character – as performed by Cassandra Campbell – was your favorite?

I don't like this question. It is a book you silly ass - not a bunch of characters
