Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Paranormal, 2013

Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

What the Critics Say

"Allison McLemore's delicate voice and Southern accent give Angel's first-person narration a humorous kick. McLemore excels at bringing Angel's self-deprecating and sarcastic comments to life. Her brisk pacing suits Angel's personality and draws listeners in from the first chapter, keeping them glued to their earphones as she plays up the book's 'gross factor' with drawling descriptions of gooey brains and crunchy skull cavities. She's also good at giving unique voices and mannerisms to secondary characters." (AudioFile)

    "A must listen for anyone who likes a good story."
    If you could sum up My Life as a White Trash Zombie in three words, what would they be?

    Witty
    Mystery
    Comfortable


    What other book might you compare My Life as a White Trash Zombie to and why?

    Some may consider my choice of similar books an odd one. Although the subject matter is ENTIRELY different, the Discworld novels leave me feeling the same way. There is great wry humor, characters you want to keep visiting, sometimes a mystery to solve, and lots of otherworldliness in a world that isn't very differnt, really, than ours. I can't wait for the next book to finish downloading!


    Any additional comments?

    This series was recommended to me by my sister, but I was a bit put off by the title. I really was not interested in something depressing, nor in the whole Zombie fad. While the title is spot on for the story, it is hardly depressing, or your standard zombie fare. (I think that Ms. Rowland may have been tired of the old zombies, too)

    "A great narration of an entertaining story"

    This book is extremely funny and is a refreshing break from the usual vampires, werewolves, and witches. Allison McLemore does a great job of bringing the characters to life and she delivers the lines beautifully.

    "So Hilarious!"

    I should have read My Life as a White Trash Zombie a long time ago. I grabbed it as part of an audible BOGO sale, but more because I'd heard good things from people I trust than because I WANTED to read it. The zombie thing just isn't typically my thing.

    But this is going to be a series where I make a huge exception. There's several reasons, but let me give you the top 3:

    The zombie mythology isn't AS gross. It's kinda vampire like and I really enjoyed it. There were times where my stomach wasn't thrilled, but Diana Rowland managed to make the eating of brains really funny most the time. I should have known from the title - My Life as a White Trash Zombie - but this was more hilarious than I expected.
    Angel, the main character. I love her, the way you have to love a good person trapped in a "fuck-up's" body. Especially when they try to make a go of improving their life. I can't wait to see Angel develop as the series progresses.
    The mystery is solid! I constantly had guesses about the who and the why and got close a couple times. But I really didn't figure things out until momements before Angel. But I could have if I'd picked up on the right hints. Exactly the kind of mystery I like.


    I'll be continuing this series on audio too - and not just because I own a few (I think). Allison McLemore was great! Her Louisiana southern accents were good (IMO) and I was so entertained by the combo of Diana Rowland's writing and Allison McLemore's voice, I can't imagine not listening. This is a combo that works like Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, in my opinion.

    If you're not a zombie fan, get over it and try My Life as a White Trash Zombie, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised - like I was. All you need to like it is a fondness for humor, great (struggling) characters, and a bit of paranormal woo-woo.

    "Cool"
    Where does My Life as a White Trash Zombie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a very interesting take on zombies. While I love zombie movies, I haven't read or listened to a zombie book. This is a very good addition to the genre.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    I like the way the discovery of what the main character was is described. Very well done.


    What about Allison McLemore’s performance did you like?

    I love her sweet gentle voice with just a hint of accent. It makes a nice counter-point to some of the more gruesome and graphic details. Plus she just sounds hot :-).

    "Zombie fun!"

    Great twist on the zombie theme. Even better, great name for a zombie: Angel. We get to follow Angel's journey/adjustment into zombie land and her inherent detective skills. Great lighthearted book and top notch narration. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
