Jack Kershaw just wants to hold on to his new job at Lisa Alioto's pizza parlor, and to keep Lisa from finding out that he's a zombie. Jack learns that he and Lisa are in serious danger.
His second chance at life is the inadvertent result of a lab experiment by two graduate students. Winthrop University - a school which knows how to keep its secrets - will do anything necessary to conceal that someone on campus raised the dead. With the help of Boston's zombie horde, can Jack and Lisa escape Winthrop's sinister clutches?
So I don’t normally go for this type of book but the narrator asked me to listen to it as it was his first time narrating. It was an okay read but I don’t zombie love just has an ick factor to it that I can’t get over.
What I thought of this book.
Jack is a zombie and he is just trying to live a normal life and works at a pizza joint. He is not real sure how he became a zombie though he knows who killed him. Lisa catches him eating an arm in the freezer and freaks out a little and shoots him, but he reanimates and then all of a sudden it’s like they are cool with one another. Lisa feels a bit sorry for him so even though she should fire him she doesn’t.
Meanwhile the people who are responsible for turning Jack into a zombie is after the zombies. They are students at Winthrop University and it is a school with some secrets. Ethan and Sarah get a hold of a book that raises the dead and they are trying to keep things underwraps. There are others who are after the zombies as well.
The person who killed Jack is also after him but with the help of some zombie friends they might make it out of all the trouble they are in.
Zombies in Love reminds me of a slapstick comedy type book. It was so over the top some times that I really wasn’t sure what I thought of it. Jack is not a bad character and you find yourself rooting for him in the end. Lisa is a middle aged woman who doesn’t really have much of a life and she was just okay.
The thing I think that bothered me the most (besides zombie romance) was the fact that Lisa just seemed okay with him being a zombie. She flipped out once and then it was like everything was just fine. They sort of have a bit of insta-love to me and it wasn’t believable.
I had to suspend a lot of belief and just go with the flow and if you can do that and like zombie romance/comedies then you will probably enjoy this more than I did.
This was Martin Wurst first time narrating a book and I thought he did a really good job. Like most guys their female voices are a bit off but nothing that can’t be over looked. He has the right type of voice for speeding up to 1.5 or more and still being able to understand what he says and that is a very big plus for me. 🙂 I might not be a huge fan of zombie love but it had nothing to do with the narration.
