Married with Zombies (Living with the Dead #1)
by Jesse Petersen
What is it about:
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.
What did I think of it:
After reading Petersen's short story collection 'In the Dead: Volume 1' I just had to read one of her full novels, so that's why I picked up 'Married With Zombies'.
And I can tell you it's a great read.
This book has kick-ass action, humor, suspense and best of all: lots of zombies and zombie mayhem. Petersen has a very pleasant writingstyle and combined with the cool story it made me tear through this book in record time. The worldbuilding is very good and I loved how each chapter began with a handy relationship tip for those couples who're fighting zombies. The one thing I can say against this story is that Sarah and David are acting very blasé about the zombies very early on in the story, but I'm willing to let that slip as there's so many cool zombie moments in this book.
I will most certainly read the next book in this series and I can advice this book to any fan of zombie books.
Why should you read it:
This fun book is a very handy guide on how to survive a zombie outbreak and save your marriage in the process as well!
