I started Married with Zombies far too long ago. It’s an endearing book about a woman Sarah and her husband David who are on the verge of divorce. Neither is putting in the effort to make their marriage work any longer. Meanwhile at the University of Washington a zombie outbreak has happened. Sarah and David are on their way to couples therapy one morning. When they arrive at their session, they find their therapist mowing down on the couple from the earlier session. Hurdled head first into this new world Sarah and David have to learn to work together to stay alive.
Married with Zombies is a lighthearted fun read about the sacrifices we all make for the ones we love. There are four and a half books in this series and I really could see them getting better and better as the author grows as a writer. The ending was left wide open for more adventures and I would happily read the next book.
I know that a jaunty comedy about a zombie apocalypse can be tricky. I’m usually down for a good Zombie read or movie, but I’d never ready anything quite like this before. I’d recommend this for someone who is looking to cross into that new world of horror without the fearing it might leaving you with nightmares. This book instead will leave you smiling.
