“The Couple Who Slays Together Stays Together.”
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.
First off, I’m Zombie biased! I love zombie everything. Although this is categorized as a zombie book, Much like the series “The Walking Dead” on AMC, this is about how people adapt during a zombie apocalypse. Sarah and David are married, and both are at their wits end with each other when the book starts . In fact, they are going to counseling when all hell brakes loose. Whats great about it is that Sarah and David use what they have learned from their counseling sessions, and apply it to whats currently going on in their lives, including the zombies!
“Give each other a compliment every day. Even when the undead attack, its nice to feel pretty. Or badass.”
Every chapter’s title is a piece of advice that a couple having troubles (during the zombie apocalypse), could benefit from. Mostly they are all hilarious. Jesse Petersen, the author, holds nothing back when it comes to the dialogue. Yes, there is cussing. I mean, c’mon, when you’re faced with a once human being, now dead, smelly rotting corpse lunging at you wanting to eat your flesh, I give you permission to cuss. The F bomb is dropped in the first chapter. So, that being said, you can only imagine the banter between a married couple on the rocks NOT in the zombie apocalypse much less one that is. Lets just say, when faced with imminent danger, you come closer together.
“Balance the world in your relationship. No one person should be responsible for killing ALL the Zombies.”
That is a true statement. Have each others back I always say 🙂 Anyway, although Sarah and David are very dysfunctional, you will be rooting for them the whole way. It makes me want to stock up on non perishables and a machete. Overall, I love this book. I love the two books that follow. Its great, and I think that, even if you aren’t a Zombie lover like myself, you will enjoy the comedy of Sarah and David. Enjoy!
What would be your must have if you were in the zombie apocalypse?
