""...the most fun I've had with a zombie book since Pride and Prejudice and Zombies...Petersen has the beginnings of a beautiful, zany series."" - Impact Online
""...Cassandra Campbell [is] the perfect choice for the voice of Sarah. She reads the story with a wry, understated wit and competent sexiness that suited the character just right. She brought a blend of maturity and whimsy that allowed the humor of the novel to stand out organically, never forcing a joke. "" - The Guilded Earlobe
""Married with Zombies is quite entertaining... Cassandra Campbell was a great narration choice for this production.: - AudiobookReviewer.com

About the Author

A Facebook application once told Jesse Petersen that she'd only survive a day in a zombie outbreak, but she doesn't believe that. For one, she's a good shot and two, she has an aversion to bodily fluids, so she'd never go digging around in zombie goo. Until the zombie apocalypse, she lives in the Midwest with her husband and two cats. Find out more about the author at www.jessepetersen.net.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I LOVED this book! It was light-hearted yet serious at times and there was always something to keep me interested!

I enjoyed the main characters (who seem like that typical "growing up and apart" couple) as I followed their adventures of slaying zombies and saving their marriage.

It definitely isn't your usual zombie book! It'll make you laugh out loud at times as the author's sense of humor comes shining through. At other times you'll see a whole different serious side of a "zombie" plaque. Yes, I was weeping at times.

It's certainly a multi-dimensional story (as in it's not just about zombies people!) that will keep you reading straight through to the end. I know I can't wait for book 2!

Rated 4.5/5

Summary: Sarah and David have hit a rough patch in their relationship. After five years of marriage, they are both unhappy and fight constantly with each other. In an effort to resolve their issues, they have been going to counseling once a week for the past six months.
On their final visit with Dr. Kelly, they walk into a scene right out of a horror movie. Dr. Kelly is literally eating two of her patients. As Sarah and David stare in shock and disbelief, Dr Kelly turns her attention on them. Before this counseling session is over, Dr Kelly is dead.... for a second time.

Sarah and David soon learn that all of Seattle is under siege by the undead. Some sort of experiment at the University of Washington went horribly wrong and resulted in Zombies taking over the city. The Zombies are multiplying at an astounding rate, and no where in the city is safe.

When the couple is finally able to leave the city, they decide head toward a small town in southern Washington to find out if David's sister has survived. Along the way, they battle zombies, they escape the clutches of a cult, and they become thieves. But, by working together against a common enemy, they also begin to repair their marriage.

Review: As a general rule, zombie stories have never really appealed to me. No matter how talented the author, zombies are still going to be decaying human bodies... YUCK. I picked up this book because the cover made it look like it might be satire instead of a "serious" zombie story. It was not satire. It was a real zombie story with truly disgusting zombies. And believe it or not, I liked it. A lot.

So what made this one different? Humor. Sarah and David are hilarious. It isn't intentional on their part.

I picked this book up at a used book store and wasn't expecting anything great, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good this book was!

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***

So Dave and Sara are having problems with their marriage, what better way to solve their problems than with a zombie apocalypse? And they start out by killing their marriage counselor who they both really don't like and feel like they're been paying too much for.

A lot of times I look for plot holes to nit pick about but there weren't any that I could find. The two characters come across other people during the zombie apocalypse but they all are red shirts. They all die after coming in contact with our two main characters. The only one that really lives after meeting the main characters is Melissa, the wife of the cult leader that thought the zombies were a plague from God. The way that her character was written, I am curious if we will see her again in the other books. I'll have to pick up the next one to find out. Just a little annoyance that all the characters die so quickly.

Something that is a little unbelievable is that they become so good at killing zombies that they do it without even breaking a sweat and they become combat experts. I admit they'd probably become better at combat, but I don't think they'd be just slaughtering zombies left and right. But that's just a minor complaint.

One thing that I liked that these characters did that others didn't do in other books is that they were concerned about their family members and they were trying to reach them and get them to safety. If the zombie apocalypse really happened that's what we'd be doing, we'd all be worried about our families and we'd want to make them safe.

First, let me start by saying that, while I have seen a few zombie movies, they usually aren't my style. Too gory, too creepy, too close to something that could actually happen. I love paranormal books but I generally shy away from zombies. When I first saw this book listed somewhere (I don't even remember where now), I read the description. It grabbed me, and attracted me right away. I started reading the paperback copy I had gotten and after the first few pages, I knew it was something even my husband would enjoy (and he does NOT read). I handed him my copy to take with him to National Guard training and downloaded the Kindle version.

I loved it! I didn't want to put it down. While it did give me the creeps a few times, most of the time I was just sucked in and didn't want to put it down. The characters of Sarah and David are interesting, likeable, and I found myself rooting for them from the start. The other characters (the non-zombie ones!) were also interesting and I hope we may find out what happened to one of them later on.

The storyline is believable enough to give me the creeps! Even though I finished the book two days ago, I still find myself wondering what I'd grab if we needed to flee zombies. LOL The nice thing is, Ms. Petersen takes zombies and actually injects humor into the story. I wasn't a huge fan of vampires until I read MaryJanice Davidson's "Undead" series--while this book isn't as "slapstick", it still reminded me in style of Ms. Davidson's books by taking a normally "scary" genre and making it a more fun series.

The ending of the book was good, and it left me wanting to read the next one in the series. I want to know what's going to happen to Sarah and David. Will they ever team up with anyone else? Will they find any more of their friends or family safe? Will the country overcome the zombie plague, or will it be the end of the world? I would (and have) recommend this to anyone looking for a new take on zombies!
