Book Description

19 Oct 2010 Living with the Dead (Book 1)
Meet Sarah and David. Sarah and David are like any other couple. They met, they fell in love, but now they're on the verge of divorce. On a routine trip to the marriage counsellor, they notice a few odd things -- the lack of cars on the road, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counsellor, 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, it doesn't mean your other problems go away. And if the zombies don't eat their brains, they might just kill each other.

Product Description


'Married with Zombies' is a wonderfully entertaining read. The writing is witty, the characters are warm and funny and the story is suspenseful and exciting. The slight twist on the typical hero and heroine of zombie fiction makes this is a refreshing read and I highly recommend it to any zombie fan.'

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Zombie Rom-Com 3 May 2011
'Married with Zombies' is such a fun book! The main characters, Sarah and David, are married, and while there is a zombie apocalypse unfolding around them, they still argue about the issues that had them in therapy to begin with, and because of these two characters, 'Married with Zombies' gives a slightly original slant on the usual characters offered in zombie fiction.

However, that's where the originality ends, this book is full of zombie fiction cliches, but you know what, I didn't care. This is such a great read because it is pure entertainment. I giggled at their quibbles and yet there is still enough substance and depth to make me care about both these characters. There's also enough disgusting viscera and brain munching to keep me happy with regards to action and it's a fast-paced read.

It begins when Dave and Sarah are on their way to see their marriage therapist and notice that the roads aren't as busy as usual. But they don't think much about it and continue bickering. When they arrive at their therapy session they wait outside the room. After waiting for what seems like ages, Sarah opens the door to find Dr Kelly munching on her previous clients.

The first thing I noticed was that Dr. Kelly's eyes were no longer blue. Now they were red with huge pupils that didn't seem to focus on anything in particular, even when she looked right at us.
Her skin was a greyish tone, sickly and pale and...dead-looking, honestly. Except for her mouth, which was covered with a black substance that clung to her lips and teeth. Her chin was bright red with blood and sticky with flesh from the fresh meal she had just devoured.
"Um, Dr. Kelly," I said, hardly able to breathe. "Dr. Kelly, are you okay?

3.0 out of 5 stars Zombie rom-com 19 Feb 2011
By I Read, Therefore I Blog VINE VOICE
Sarah and David are an average couple living in Seattle who've invested in weekly counselling sessions with Dr Kelly to try and save their failing five year marriage. All the problems they've identified with each other fade in importance though on the afternoon they go to their session and find Dr Kelly eating the previous client. A local university has accidentally unleashed a zombie plague on the city and the infection's spreading fast. As the couple battle for survival against the infected, they're forced to set aside their differences and learn to work together - that is, if they don't kill each other first.

The first in a zombie rom-com series, Petersen has an interesting take on the zombie apocalypse novel and I like the idea of a book where a couple on the skids are forced to re-evaluate things as the world falls apart around them. However while the idea's great, the execution never quite caught fire for me.

Firstly, there's not a lot of romance in here. Told in the first person by Sarah, there's a lot of criticism of David and the ways he's let her down (essentially dropping out of an MBA and failing to find a job) but little about what she likes about him. Although their shared experiences draw them closer, for me there wasn't a sense of emotional closeness being reignited and I struggled to see what had brought them together in the first place. As a result, the scenes where the couple are put in jeopardy from the infected lacked tension as I didn't get the sense that either was really worried about the other except as a means of ensuring their own survival. Also affecting the tension is the fact that Sarah is recounting this in the past tense so from page 1 you know that they both make it through the story, robbing the book of any sense of jeopardy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombie comedy 21 Nov 2012
By Kate Phillips TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I really liked this book it was exactly my kind of thing. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I bought this book, I normally like my dystopian to be quite serious and dark. But this was a pleasant surprise.

Married with Zombies is essentially two types of book rolled into one. The first is a romantic comedy about a couples marriage problems. The second is zombie horror. The romantic comedy was good. I liked the two characters and their bickering was really funny. I rooted for them as a couple even though I could see why they sometimes annoyed the hell out of each other.

The zombie part was also good, it was a little more Zombieland then The Walking Dead but it didn't hold back on the blood and guts. There were some scary parts, funny parts and surprisingly touching parts. Behind the humour there is a world falling apart and occasionally the author slaps you in the face with it.
This book was a pleasant surprise which I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead good fun! 10 Sep 2012
I stumbled across this book whilst on holiday in a bookstore that was closing down and paid 1.25 for it, expecting it to be a little poor...But how wrong could i be! I could not put this book down! It was fast paced and exciting from the beginning, and was funny and down to earth.

This is my favourite genre...horror (zombies especially) are my thing and what i liked about reading a book about them instead of a watching a film, was that it was like you were going along with Sarah and David, part of the survivors shall we say!

It just comes to show that knowing all you can about zombies CAN and WILL help you survive a possible zombie outbreak!

Never say NEVER!!! ;)
