Married with zombies
Jesse Petersen
Adult Fiction PETERSE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

In Petersen's cute debut, a zombie apocalypse turns out to be the best thing for a crumbling marriage. Bickering Seattle suburbanites David and Sarah are startled to discover their marriage counselor eating another couple. After making it home safely, they decide to head to David's sister's house in Longview. Along the way, they encounter the walking dead at nearly every turn and apply their extensive knowledge of zombie movies to fighting them. Naturally, battling zombies brings them together in a way their therapist and assorted books never could. There's a point of diminishing returns-the zombie attacks eventually blur together and an encounter with a cult in a casino feels a little forced-and while the book is short enough to not overstay its welcome, the joke may not be sustainable through the planned sequels.

From Library Journal:

Who knew that the end of the world as we know it owing to a biological agent that turns your loved ones into zombies would be the best thing for Sarah and David's marriage? Combine marital therapy with stark, postapocalyptic survival and throw in the monster of the day and you have one dark comedy. While there is a bump or two in both the writing and the adventures of Sarah and David as they race to find family and safety, this first title in Petersen's (www.jessepetersen.net) "Living with the Dead" trilogy, enhanced by Audie Award nominee Cassandra Campbell's fast-paced, engaging narration, is very promising. For thriller, horror, and humor fans.-J. Sara Paulk, Wythe-Grayson Regional Lib., Independence, VA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
