Review from The Word Fiend,
This review is from: My Life as a White Trash Zombie (Mass Market Paperback)
My Life As A White Trash Zombie is zombielicious! Both entertaining and funny Diana Rowland may have converted me to the zombie cause!
Bear with me while I gush about this fantastic cover - it really is one of the best I have seen this year and reflects the humour of the book beautifully. Angel's haircut, piercings and the cigarette loosely held between her lips scream white trash. Then there's the blood and gore dripping from her chin and the gorgeous detail of a tattoo proclaiming I Love Brains that just bring it all together. The artist, Dan Dos Santos, has created the perfect image for the book.
Diana Rowland's writing is uncluttered and easy to read - leaving you to enjoy the story. And I really did enjoy this story! The zombies in My Life As A White Trash Zombie aren't quite your classic shambling undead. Rowland has stuck with the need for human brains, but her zombies are more full of life (if you can excuse the term) than you may expect. I loved it! My only comment on the plot itself is that the murder investigation felt very secondary to Angel learning about her new "situation" until the end of the book. I would have liked to have seen Angel being more involved throughout the investigation so that the story shifts more easily into the climax.
Angel Crawford really is white trash and she makes no apologies for the fact. I really liked Angel and was rooting for her from early into the book. Although she hasn't had the easiest life she makes no excuses for her own stupid decisions and mistakes. And I can respect that. I really enjoyed watching Angel get her life back together and discover that she does deserve better than she settles for. Plus she has a great sense of humour.
My Life As A White Trash Zombie will most definitely entertain you and I have one thing to say to Diana Rowland - more please!
