Sarah and David have marriage problems. Or at least they did until the zombie apocalypse. This is a witty start to the series. With lots of zombies and I dig zombies. I enjoyed it and it's a quick read.

Journal Entry 13 by wingkiwiinenglandwing at Dublin, Co. Dublin Ireland on Tuesday, November 01, 2011
Arrived with me just after Halloween, which is an appropriate time to read this book.

I love the tag line "The couple who slays together stays together".

Thanks xlacrimax for sending it on.

Journal Entry 14 by wingkiwiinenglandwing at Dublin, Co. Dublin Ireland on Monday, November 28, 2011
A fun and easy read, perfect to relax with. The central character was highly irritating at first, I mean would you really be concerned that you new white shirt was dirty when you had nearly been killed by zombies? Apparently you would.

The scene in the casino was slightly reminisent of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road", but in a totally different writing style.

I've got Jonniboi's address so will send on when I'm next at the postoffice.

I have this book now, I have quite a few bookrings/rays, but I'm trying my best to get on top of things, I'm reading as much as I can, and this one sound fascinating, can't wait to start reading it!

Journal Entry 17 by Jonniboi at Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Tuesday, January 03, 2012
I actually really enjoyed this, it was a horromantic (made that genre up) and it's definitely the genre for me, there's just something about it that is amazing and gripping, it's like a romcom, but better.

The book reminds me of Dead Set (this was a tv series aired in the UK where zombies took over the world, but the out break started at the Big Brother house). And I was reading it, wanting to start watching the series again, along with the Walking Dead, which is a similar storyline.

I thought it was unfair that they had to kill so many people they knew, but you have to expect it right? I am so definitely getting the next book!

Got the next person in line's address, so I'll be sending off soon, hopefully!

Thanks Victoria Wagtail for organizing this ray.

Journal Entry 22 by Appelsiini at Lempäälä, Pirkanmaa / Birkaland Finland on Monday, March 12, 2012
It's here! I have 2 books to read before I can start this one but I'll try to be quick! :)

Journal Entry 23 by Appelsiini at Lempäälä, Pirkanmaa / Birkaland Finland on Tuesday, April 10, 2012
This was good fun, not the best zombie book I have read, but after all, how different zombie stories can be? :) Lots of action with great humor but I have to admit it was quite boring how many times you can have a gun stucked in your waist band, can't get it out and you have to get something else to kill the zombie. How about learning from the very 1st time and not stucking a gun under you waist band...

But anyway, I liked this book so much I'll add the 2nd part into my wishlist in case it would show up sometime.

I already have Buffyfans address so I'll mail this one today! Thanks for sharing this funny book!

The book came today, and I'm looking forward to reading it. Have to one book to finished, then I'll start it. Thanks for sending it.

*****FINISHED IT******
Okay, I have to admit that I didn't think I'd like this one as much as I did.

Sarah and David have problems. They love each other, but their marriage is falling apart. When they go and see their marriage councilor, they have a new problem. She's now a zombie, and eating her clients. Sarah and David barely make it out of the office alive, and so starts their zombie hunting days. David wants to go across country to see if his sister is alive still, and not a zombie. Along the way, the two of them are battling zombies, and at times, each other. Along the way, they meet some interesting cast of characters. Some of them are alive, and some of them aren't. That's all I really want to say on the plot.

This really is a fantastic read. Don't let the cover fool you. The cover makes it look like a "cozy" zombie read. Trust me, it's not. At times, the book is very, very violent, and I loved every minute of it. The cast of characters are life like, in that the seem to jump off the page. I don't want to say who they meet, but all of the characters are refreshing and not "cookie cutter" characters. The author takes the time to develop them.

The author has a nice writing style. The writing style flows at a nice and even pace. There isn't any long winded fluff, just to add pages to the book. There's enough twists and turns that will keep the reader hooked to the last page, and wanting more.

If you start this series, I can promise you'll be hooked as I was. I can't want to get my hands on the next installment.

This arrived yesterday in Colorado!! I am very excited to read it, just have to finish the glorified Harlequin (otherwise known as Pride and Prejudice) I am reading right now.

Journal Entry 27 by innae at Aurora, Colorado USA on Saturday, May 12, 2012
What a cute little story about zombies. I thoroughly enjoyed this trek into Sarah and David's world - so very close to our own...really only an outbreak away. How would you deal??

Waiting to hear from Izzy (I have her address, just making sure she still wants to read this) -- and I will get it moving again.

My apologies. I have been away from my books for a long time. This book actually got here about a year ago and I am just now getting around to journaling it. Thank you, ravencat, for sending it my way.

I am so sorry to keep this ray stalled for such a long time. I will either read this quickly or go ahead and contact Bananabrianna to see if she is still interested.
