My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Plot - As it says on the summery, a couple is having some problems with their marriage and are trying to solve them with professional counseling. Pretty normal and, to be honest, pretty boring. However, this is just the first pages of the story and when you least expect *boom* the doctor is trying to eat you alive. THAT is not normal or boring at all, right. Who would’ve guessed that a zombie break out would be the thing to save a failed marriage? I sure didn’t. Well, it’s a nice and kind of cool plot.
The Characters - Jane and Dave are pretty ordinary and nothing at all special in any way. This is something new, since every book about the paranormal I read has characters with something special *jazz hands here* about them. It’s cool to watch the average Jo dealing whit exceptional situations once in a while.
The Audiobook - This is a “ok” reading for me. The narrator was a little flat on the reading and didn’t give me much emotion even on the really scary parts. I wish it had a little more interpretation and , I don’t know, charisma, maybe.
The Writing - It’s a nice one and has a good flow to it, but is nothing special.
Considerations - Overall it’s a good story, it has good characters and that’s it. It’s just good. I didn’t feel connected to the book and all and all, the whole thing rolled over me like a wave leaving no great impression. However, I found some interesting things like the whole “Everybody-is-trying-to-eat-us-and-we-need-to-do-something-or-else-we’ll-end-up-zombie-lunch-or-worse-,-zombies-our-selves” thing. I don’t care how many times this is played, is always crap-your-pants-scary. The jokes was funny and pleasant too. Specially the Doctor Phill one. LoL
Now, seriously, Zombie Apocalypse is right there on the corner and we should be prepared for it. Go and read all you can read and watch all you can watch about them and how they act and fight. Once they attack, there’s no time to lose.
