Weird!

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect when I started this, it just sounded weird, but I was intrigued enough to get it!! Anyway, this is just under 2 hours long, but packs a lot into it. It's about two brothers who get a call to come check out a disturbance in a gated community. When their client calls them, he tells them he hears noises and moaning coming from the crawl space, they tell him not to open it, but what does he do?? Only goes and opens it. Just before the call cuts off, the brothers hear the zombie say omelet, omellleet, omeeelllleeet. Why would zombies be wanting an omelet?

I have to say, I loved the brothers!! They were hilarious. Their interactions were so funny and had me laughing out loud a few times. They were well written and developed, which is often hard for a book that is so short!!

The plot was...awesome ;) Lol. I loved the omelet part, it really was inspired!! How often has a Zombie book have the Zombies saying omelet? You will have to read it to see why they say omelet!!!

In all, a fun, easy and "tongue in cheek" read. It was a pleasant surprise and kept me entertained. I hope book 2 comes to audio!!

Ian McEuen was really good. He gave the brothers their own personalities and made them easy to distinguish. He was also clear and easy to listen to and seemed to have fun when reading it!!

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Funny!!

If you could sum up The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators in three words, what would they be?

Funny, Entertaining, Omelet!!

What other book might you compare The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators to and why?

I have never read a book that compares to The Zee Brothers. This book is definitely in a category all on its own.

What about Ian McEuen’s performance did you like?

I loved all the different voices he used for each character. Ian McEuen is a great storyteller.

Any additional comments?

I usually read romance books, but this book was so funny. I love zombies and this book was thoroughly entertaining. I can't wait to read more from this author.

Funny well written book!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators to be better than the print version?

I love how this audio book had music that really set the theme for the narration. I feel like the music was paired perfectly and other music choices wouldn't have been as great as a fit as what they choice. Perfect pairing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators?

I was laughing so hard listening to this, there were so many memorable moments. I really loved their first client who turned zombie and was attacking them trying to gum them to death. I was nearly cry laughing.

Which character – as performed by Ian McEuen – was your favorite?

Judas and Jonah Zee were my favorite mostly because they are the main characters.

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

Yes it was it's a nice short book, perfect to curl up with a blanket and listen to the whole thing. It's less than 2 hours and ideal for a one sitting listen.

Any additional comments?

I felt like this was a mix of ghost busters meets zombies which was a great idea. I loved every minuet of this book and I hope there are sequels to come!

Native American Zombie Mayhem

What made the experience of listening to The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators the most enjoyable?

The different characters were very individualized by the narrator! It was really fun to listen to. The incredulity came over very strong as well as the panic! Made it alot funnier than it would have been to read :)

What did you like best about this story?

The Grindhouse dark comedic adventure vibe was amazing! It was like no other book I have ever read and I can't wait for more :)

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

The performance was incredibly amusing and I loved the distinctly different characters! He has an incredible voice range and fully illustrated each one with his performance. I will definitely look into more titles narrated by him :)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The background music (opening and closing theme and Xanadu's Theme) was a really nice touch! Even if (because of the zombies) I now have "Thriller" stuck in my head :) LOVE that dog Xanadu!!!

Any additional comments?

This series must be listened to (or read) in order. This is the first book. I can't wait to listen to the next one!


Jonah and Judas are zombie exterminators. Getting a call from a new client should be a good thing... Until they hear their client get eaten! They can't let a zombie outbreak get outta hand, so client alive or not, they are on the case. Will they be able to contain the zombie outbreak before it becomes a full fledged Apocalyse situation? Will they be able to break the Curse? Or will they get eaten first?


***This series is suitable for adult readers who enjoy zombie stories with a little horror splashed into a total Grindhouse darkly comedic action paranormal fantasy adventure with a smidge of sexy fun :)

Hilarious Zee Brothers - A must read!

If you could sum up The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators in three words, what would they be?

Deadly hilariously funny

Which scene was your favorite?

Their first client turned zombie trying to gum them to death.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There are ghost hunters, Sasquatch hunters, crypt-zoologists and then there are the Zee Brothers, zombie hunters!

Any additional comments?

WordsAPlenty received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review. This in no way affects the review.

There are ghost hunters, Sasquatch hunters, crypt-zoologists and then there are the Zee Brothers, zombie hunters! The brothers are Jonah and Judas. Their first client calls them to report he may have zombies in the crawl space under his house. Fortunately for the Zee Brothers, their first client lives in the small gated community of Winter Oaks, Arizona.
Winter Oaks is the home and burial ground of the now deceased Pakatini Tribe. Buried among their people is an old sacred amulet which the loathsome President of the Home Owners Association accidently disturbed. The Zee Brothers arrive to find their first client dead; and they hook up with JJ (a busty beautiful woman) and her dog Xanadu who are visiting the family there.

The Zee brothers and JJ have to solve the mystery as to what has caused the Indians to rise (and why would a zombie want an omelet?) … and they know it is somewhere in the nearby landfill.

Well written zombie fun. Nothing is as it seems – Xanadu does some pretty amazing things for a dog, the magic 8 ball gear shift seems to be on target with everything the brothers are going through and if all else fails there’s chocolate! Grivante takes the zombie genre and gives it a fresh look and goes where no other has gone with the zombies and his heroes!
Only 1 hour and 55 minutes long, Givante does an excellent job of packing a ton of fun and danger into this short audio. You will laugh!

Ian McEuen did an excellent job of narration adding personality to the brothers and JJ. His voices and interjecting of music in this audio was spot on.
There were no issues with the production of this audio.
WordsAPlenty gives this a 4.5 star rating.

well written and performed zombie fun book

Omelet ….. ommmleeeete …. ommmleeeete. Most zombies, if they speak, yell ‘BRAINS” but not these zombies … the infamous Zee Brothers, zombie exterminators clearly heard the zombies chanting “Omelet, Omelet, Omelet.” Drawing out the word each time with an eerily haunted tone.

There are ghost hunters, Sasquatch hunters, crypt-zoologists and then there are the Zee Brothers, zombie exterminators! The brothers are Jonah and Judas. One is down to 7 fingers (zombie accident) and other can’t drive but still tries!

The beautiful gated community and suburb, Winter Oaks was built on top of an ancient burial ground of the now deceased Pakatini Tribe. Unfortunately for their first client he has zombies in the crawl space under his house. The president of the home owners association reportedly is an obnoxious fool who disturbed the land and tossed an ancient amulet (not omelet) into the landfill.

By the time The Zee brothers arrive at the small gated community, all hell has broken loose. There are more “omelet” chanting zombies than they know what to do with but the brothers do take the time to fight over the gorgeous and voluptuous busty JJ and her mysterious dog Xanadu.

The Zee brothers and JJ have to solve the mystery as to what has caused the Indians to rise (and why would a zombie would want an omelet). Several run-ins with the zombies and their shaman reveal it is NOT an omelet they are seeking and they know the item is now somewhere in the nearby landfill (in truth JJ and the President reveal the big secret).

This is a well written and performed zombie fun book. Nothing is as it seems – Xanadu does some pretty amazing things for a dog, the magic 8 ball gear shift seems to be on target with everything the brothers are going through as well as providing JJ with some much needed “relief” and if all else fails there’s chocolate! Grivante takes the zombie genre and gives it a fresh look and goes where no other has gone with the zombies and his heroes!

Only 1 hour and 55 minutes long, Givante does an excellent job of packing a ton of fun and danger into this short audio. You will laugh! The Zee brothers take their first client and turn him into their zombie pet – he’s harmless as he has NO teeth!

Ian McEuen did an excellent job of narration adding personality to the brothers and JJ. His voices and interjecting of music in this audio was spot on and cheesy enough to make it all work together.

There were no issues with the production of this audio.

Weird!

So I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into when I saw the blurb of this book. It just sounded so interesting and weird that I wanted to read! And so I listened to this as fast as possible. It was excellent!

Grivante has written this bizarre and cool Zombie world with a lot of humor. There are a lot of laugh out loud moments and I teared up so much because of them haha. I truly enjoyed this author’s style! He makes a weird premise turn into something amazing and gripping! I give the story a 5/5!

The narrator is excellent as well. He gave the brothers very distinctive voices and I was never unsure of who was speaking. I like the other work he did as well with Zombie sounds and what not. He probably honestly made the jokes stand out even better than if I had only been reading them. I know I’m definitely looking forward to the next story in this series! I give it a 5/5 Overall!

Zombies meets Scooby Doo

Yes, that is exactly how I would classify this book - Zombies meets Scooby Doo.

I mean, when you're main bad guy is a denture-wearing zombie, what else can you say? That being said, this book is definitely meant for adults only. The Zee brothers have quite a mouth on them so be prepared for some language. But that's not the only reason. It really would be a shame for such references as the Zee Brothers' phone number (888-867-5309 . . . just try to read that without humming) to be lost on those who weren't part of the 80's! 

I really had no idea what I was getting into with this book. My experience with zombies is confined to the first few seasons of the Walking Dead (before it turned into a gory  show that no longer has any moral obligations to its viewers) and that movie . . . what is it? Warm Bodies? I am not a fan of gore or blood and guts so I usually steer clear of zombies. But, when I started listening to this audiobook, I spent the first chapter in tears because I was laughing so hard. 

The Zee Brothers are hilarious. Think: Rednecks meet Ghostbusters. That's what I envisioned. Their banter had me cracking up at times. Then you add in J.J. and her incredibly mysterious dog, Xanadu, and I was amazed that zombies could be so lighthearted. 

Yes, while this is still a zombie book, I picture Scooby and some rednecks, big guns, and a crazy little dog that I'm still not sure about. If you can handle the zombie part, I definitely recommend this book. It is a very entertaining read :)

Rednecks and zombies

This was a very short book. It was filled with action and humor. Ian McEuen has done an amazing job with this story. He was great with the narration as well as the different voices.

To me this was not the normal Zombie book. It was more like a Zombie book with back woods Rednecks. It was a fun book to listen to.

Jonah and Judas are brothers and Zombie hunters, they drive a pick up, and argue with each other over pretty much everything. Especially the girl JJ. A housing development was built on top of an ancient Indian burial ground and when an artifact was disturbed it has awoken the Zombies. The Zombies are trying to get the amulet back and along the way they take out anyone and everyone in their path.

They receive a call to come take care of the Zombies in a man's house and the phone call ends with a holler and a gurgling sound. Jonah and Judas head out to find out what has happened, knowing the man was probably killed by the Zombies in his house. This is where they meet up with JJ and her magical and disco imbued dog, Xanadu.

Fun Zombie Story

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Grivante. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

What a fun audiobook to listen to! Brothers Jonah and Judas are zombie exterminators. When a house developer disturbs an ancient Indian reservation/burial ground, a High Priest calls all of the dead to find a lost amulet. The dead come back in the form of zombies. So Jonah and Judas jump in their trusty truck, Sasha, and they have their artillery gun, DeeDee with them.

Even though this audiobook is only about 2 hours long, there are a lot of close calls with the zombies and a lot of laughs. These guys are crazy. And their friend JJ is just as crazy as them. She even has a dog named Xanadu who is magical.

If you like something different, I definitely recommend trying the Zee Brothers.

Zee brothers

The Zee brothers Jonah and Judas are just to cool. They make killings zombies sexy as hell. The author Grivante has captured what it means to have a gory, and at the same time fun book that keeps me listening.

Hilarious zombie story!

The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators was absolutely hilarious! I was laughing throughout the whole story. The dog was a little cheesy but I still liked it. The music references were great! Especially the phone number for the Zee Brothers! "Ask for Jenny" lol. The toothless zombie trying to gum them to death was great!

Ian McEuen does a great job with the narration and each of the characters. I loved the voices! That made the story so much funnier!

"We don't do bugs, ma'am. We deal with, bigger..."

Any additional comments?

Mr. Pembleton living in the Winter Oaks gated community has an infestation problem. Something is scratching in the crawl space under his home. Burt from Pestbegone takes a look and recommends he consult the squabblesome Zee brothers, Judas and Jona, to get it sorted out.

This is a zombie book with a difference, think Zombie-type Ghostbusters. It is non stop comedic action as the couple, plus a young woman and her dog, Xanadu, battle ever increasing numbers of long dead tribal Indians on whose land the Winter Oaks community had been built. Funny throughout, it is sometimes laugh out loud hilarious.
The narration by Ian McEuen is great, with the brother's voices clearly differentiated as they bicker with each other, and all other characters, including JJ and her dog, are also instantly distinguishable. He paces his reading to keep up with the text (especially important in this story) and carries the excitement to the listener. Unusually, not only is the book introduced and concluded with music, at very select points music is also inserted into the body of the text as soundtrack - with great effect. This was provided by a group called Frostbite.

A funny book, a good narration, inovative ideas - and zombies. What's not to like? Thank you so much, Xodus, for the gift of this Audiobook. More please. I loved it.
