I'll definitely read the sequel. Everything is Better With a Cape: The Second Part to I Wore Heels to the Apocalypse
The writing itself contains a certain level of wit that will have you in stitches. Some of the conversations the characters have with each other are really well handled.
This is a well written, comical look at how to survive an apocalypse and I highly recommend it.
I Wore Heels To The Apocalypse tells the story of web designer Kerry who, having dressed snappily for a business interview, then finds herself hopelessly attired for escaping exploding coffee shops and general running away as The Apocalypse takes place all around her. Exasperated at becoming the generic pathetic female, she befriends a talking badger (as you do) and eventually finds that she might have a useful skill or two after all.
I Wore Heels is a whimsical exploration of survival in desperate times. The characters are more caricatures than fully rounded portrayals, but their adventure takes interesting turns and is always entertaining. Personally I would have preferred more background and description and less chat as the dialogue isn't always convincing, but otherwise this is fun escapism - and possibly zombies!
The book has satirical humour throughout which made it an enjoyable read and engaging. What I really liked about it was the development of the characters in such a short story. For example, I started off not liking Tyrone but he quickly became one of my favourite characters and that's when I realised why. In life, there are those that we think we don't like, but as you get to know them and get past all the bravado, you see the real person behind that bravado.
Another favourite character of mine was the badger, he had me in stitches and part of me was secretly praying that nothing bad would happen to this badger.
The final aspect I'd like to cover is the relationship aspect. For me, the dynamics were cleverly written. Not all of us have those locker room moments (I know I never) so it can be confusing when you start to develop feelings for the same sex. The author placed little hints of a possible relationship and developed this throughout the apocalypse, it wasn't suddenly sprung on to the reader, well it wasn't sprung on to me as I knew it was bound to happen.
I saw someone say on social media that this book is unrealistic...that's why it's fiction. It's a short story that you can curl up on the sofa and lose yourself in something that's funny, quirky with a nice twist at the end. If you're having a crappy day or week, then highly recommend this book as a pick me up.
