Book Thirty-Five of 2013: MARRIED WITH ZOMBIES by Jesse Petersen



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.

The cute silver and pink cover started the interest, then I read the back, and then the first chapter. I am a huge zombie fan. I love the blood, gore, and human issues. This book had it in spades. There was enough gore and human problems to keep me rooting for the characters. The use of humor was also great.

This book is a clear cut story. It’s about two people, a couple with marital problems, trying to deal with their differences as they cope with the zombie apocalypse. What more needs to be said? If anything, there wasn’t enough romantic comedy in the mix. However, I doubt that would’ve had made this book any more realistic.

Sure, zombies aren’t real… not yet, but the issues in the couples’ relationship is. There is an amazing scene with a common issue amongst the sexes: the toilet seat. I know you know what I’m talking about. Add zombies to the mix and it should be enough to pique your interest.

MARRIED WITH ZOMBIES is a great quick read if you’re in serious need of zombies, but don’t want the usual humdrum of brains and death.
