You can tell the next one will be carbon copy with life-affirming statements ( Eat Slay Love ? Uh huh). I'd thought the first book had left off with our heroes heading off to find Sarah's father? Maybe I misunderstood, because this book had them near Phoenix, offering their services as zombie exterminators. A group of survivors had banded together in a compound and a scavenging/barter system had developed. There's a mad scientist (not a spoiler, the back of the book blurb says this) who is altering zombies (maybe a spoiler, whatever). Instead of David being stupidly trusting, Sarah is stupidly trusting. It works out in the end. There's mention of a Midwest wall, keeping zombies away from people on the east coast. I don't know, this sketches out a situation and then zooms in close-up to one couple, but since World War Z was my first zombie-craze read everything else has been shoddy in comparison. I can't shut off massive portions of my head for long enough to really enjoy this. HUGEST PEEVE EVER. The last book's dialogue was all "he whispered" and "she whispered," so much communication whispered. This one changed it up with "he said softly" and "she said softly." YaAAHAHAGHghaghhghghgh! Is this a writing tic? My reading tic began making every occurence of "whispered" and "softly" pulse with it's own neon beat. "I hate this," I whisper softly to myself. The best thing about this series is that I lent the first book out at work and it got passed around. Someone ended up buying this second book and lent it to me. I have a few people who now occasionally ask me what I'm reading and will take what I offer. Sadly, it seems to have been a flash in the pan trend, but I just started the most persistent one on Bujold and he's currently on the 2nd book. I'm not letting this fish off the hook. Read, fish, read!

    I wouldn't advice a zombie apocalypse to save a marriage, but it definitely worked for our hero and heroine. Their marriage is stronger than ever as they launch their business. Now they make a living out of the dead.

    This was a fun, fluffy addition to the series. Still plenty of zombies, snarky comments, surprises, gore, and heart. Nothing you have to think that hard about, just an entertaining October read. I will continue to the third installment.

    I just love a sequel that's better than the first! Sarah and David are back, fighting zombies and watching out for each other. Petersen ups the ante and keeps the tension going strong: Between the emergence of a new type of powerful, smarter, bionic un-dead, and the mysterious secrets of the living, Sarah and David will have to use all their wits to survive.

    Okay, so let me start off by saying that this series is probably one of the shallowest, fakest, most unrealistic zombie apocalypse books I have ever read (and I've read A LOT) however, this book still managed to be amazing.

There isn't any fake insta love stuff going on here, just more good times built on from the first book. I had a bit of an issue with the whole 'mad scientist and genius kid' theme that was going on, but Ms. Petersen manages to carry it with well placed jokes and a natural talent for writing. There are some authors out there with credentials galore that think they can write but fail miserably. This is almost the opposite. Ms. Petersen has a wonderful, casual tone that just seems so right, especially for this genre. I would love it she would continue with other urban fantasy novels in the future. If you like this book, you will love: My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland or the movie, Zombieland.

    Audiobook There's one scene in this book that I can't get out of my head and it stopped me from enjoying this book. It was almost a record scratch reaction that had me re-examining the thing I liked the most about it - the marriage between the two main characters. Then when there was a reconciliation I kept waiting for Sarah to say, "David, let's talk about what you said earlier to me." But no, nothing. I'm sure if Sarah had said the same thing to David he would have definitely mentioned it.

    Husband and wife team up to take out zombies threatening to eat all humans that remain but when they come across a note left for them about a kind of secret job that’s when things change. I found some funny moments in this story but also some surprising ones and sad too but these two are funny together. I enjoy the tag team and even though things become rough at times they still stick together. I guess at this time their marriage is testing the better or worse statement for sure.

    Living With the Dead used to be funny once. Yes, I do remember the good ol’ times when I was actually laughing while reading one of Petersen’s books. And look at me now. All serious, yawning, skimming, yawning some more and not enjoying my time one bit. All in all, it was a very light read. I finished it in two days (yes, partly because of all the skimming) so it wasn’t such a pain in the ass. Then again, I must state that I’m VERY disappointed. This series had good potential, but the quality of Living With the Dead used to be funny once.

This series had good potential, but the quality of the books seems to be decreasing and the predictability, as you probably guessed, is increasing. There are two of them left, one of which is a short story, so I’m glad I won’t have to put up with annoying Sarah and douchebag Dave for much longer.

    I was not totally thrilled with the first book in the series. It got a bit too "whiny" for lack of a better word. There were moments that managed to shine, but it was just not ringing for me. I had already snagged books 2 and 3, so I chose to give it another shot. I am very glad that I did. There is some nice stuff going on here.

    2020 I wish David and Sarah had seemed to improve a little in their relationship for this book (I mean, I guess they aren't looking to leave each other or anything, but she and David certainly hadn't learned to communicate any better than they were in the previous book. I had had some hopes after the first one that it would seem like they were in a better place than they had been when they were visiting their zombie couples therapist).

But I was completely on David's side when it came to the scientist guy. 100%. I know that I would have been like Sarah if I had been the one living in the zombie world; completely optimistic. Hoping for a better future. But, in this world, I completely didn't trust that scientist guy. Especially after he had the sedation for the zombie just right on had. And then he gave Sarah a completely tricked out van after hers had crashed. Like a perfect zombie hunter van instead of the semi/sort of junk pile that she and David had previously been using. I couldn't believe that Sarah still believed in that guy at that point. That should have definitely set off some alarm bells for her. However, Robbie was a complete and total shock. Multiple times! I couldn't believe how much I was fooled by that little kid!

Are we on the fucking Bachelor now?” He didn’t answer for a long time, long enough that the answer was pretty clear. It was so entertaining reading about Kevin and Dave arguing. The first is almost shy and really calm, but a schemer, the second is vulgar and very angry, so it was the perfect mix haha. “Stop it,” I said, placing a hand on the .45 Kevin held and turning it away from Dave and me. “Stop it both of you. You’re acting like schoolboys on a playground except the guns are real. Shooting each other will get us nowhere. Don’t forget who our enemy is.” “I know exactly who the enemy is,” Dave growled behind me. “Mr. Comic Book Villain here. All you need is a thought bubble, asshole.” [...] I looked at him and then at Kevin, who was smiling slightly, I suppose in support of what I was saying. Or maybe he was just a smug son of a bitch. I can't wait to read the next book!

I have to say the plot moves along then some novels that are realistic; you never know.

    I like the single perspective structure, same as the first book. The narrator cassandra campbell is always a win. I usually like the first part of an apocalypse story where people are adjusting and losing hope. For me, book 2 wasn't that interesting. They got to the point where they carelessly kill zombies because it's so easy, over a thousand during the 3 months between book 1 and book 2. Early on, we hear rumors of (view spoiler)[bionic zombies (hide spoiler)] , but they're a bit of a letdown. I like the single perspective structure, same as the first book.

We get two new characters, but I didn't really care for either one. They pick up an 11 year old kid who is a brat, and I keep waiting for him to get shot or eaten. Sarah seems desperate to please the cute mad scientist who gives off creepy and evil vibes, so she wants to go on an adventure capturing zombies to be test subjects. Did I mention the mad scientist is cute? Sarah won't let us forget. She misses the sexual harrassment from the normal world, so she feels happy when he creeps on her. (Not kidding). It was ok, but I'm not sure I'll read the third book.

David and Sarah had some rough spots in this story, both with the zombies and with each other. But all’s well that ends well, except it never really ends, because there are always many more zombies, right around the corner.

The Zombie Apocalypse has meant the end of organized civilization, the loss of electricity, showers, and meals that don’t come out of a can or cardboard box. Oh yeah, and it has also rendered the majority of the world population as insatiable, flesh-hungry, shambling monsters. Despite the loss of creature comforts and the uptick in the undead population, however, life After Zombies has been pretty good for married couple Sarah and David. See, before the apocalypse, their marriage was on its last legs and destined for a bitter divorce. But zombies have a way of bringing even the most pissed off couples together – and Sarah and David discover that, hey, they’re at their best when they’re bludgeoning, shooting, and hacking the undead to pieces. Teamwork. They has it. With their new company, Zombiebusters Exterminators, Inc., Sarah and David have been cleaning up the arid southwest with trademark snark, taking on jobs in exchange for food, beer, medical supplies, and anything else they can wrangle from the humans living together in the survivor camps across the nation. Sarah and David think they have seen it all – but then reports start rolling in about so-called bionic zombies (TM Sarah, naturally) that have higher thought processes and faster reflexes. Then, the Zombiebuster duo get a job from an honest-to-goodness mad scientist (camped out in a secret subterranean lab and everything) to start catching zombies and bring them back alive (err…or still animated, I should say), because the doc says he may have a cure that could save the planet. As enamored as Sarah is with the possibility of a future with civilization back intact, David’s cynicism means he cannot help but suspect that something more foul is afoot. And he’s right. Something’s rotten in the state of Arizona, and it ain’t just the corpses. It’s up to Sarah and David to figure out the truth before it bites them in the ass. As I’ve said before, I loved Married with Zombies – not so much because of any novelty in terms of zombie lore or the apocalypse, but because of the situational humor and characters involved. I finished Married with Zombies with an insatiable desire for more, and I am thrilled to report that Flip This Zombie delivers.1 Interestingly, Flip This Zombie runs opposite of its predecessor – the humor is toned down in this volume (although it is, of course, still present and still awesome), and the more interesting developments occur in terms of plotting and action. Although the mad scientist trope isn’t anything new, the schlock value and pure fun of this book more than make up for the lack of originality. Plus, what can I say, I love me a mad science lab. Especially when it’s a secret underground lab in the middle of the desert. Clearly, someone has been playing/watching Resident Evil and it totally shows in this lovely homage to Alice kicking souped-up zombie ass – and I love that the characters in the book address this, too. At one point, David makes the jibe that one character must have watched too much RE and found themselves rooting for the Umbrella Corporation instead of the hot chick. Yes. FUN. There are also a ton of other pop culture references, from Mad Max to even a Drago/Rocky IV “I must break you” drop which had me in giggles (who doesn’t love Rocky IV?!). That’s not to say Flip This Zombie is merely a collection of glib pop-geekery, however, as there are a number of interesting and complicating plot developments. Despite Sarah’s sense of humor, it’s clear that the world has become a bleak and unforgiving place, and David’s jaded attitude – and fear for Sarah’s safety – speaks to this. When the couple run across an eleven year old boy that has somehow inexplicably survived the outbreak and subsequent months by himself in the desert, this danger is hammered home all the more. On that note I should say that I loved the addition of The Kid; swearing like there’s no tomorrow, feral and badass, he totally reminded me of Short Round from Temple of Doom, but minus the accent and wrapped in a Bart Simpson package. I digress. The coolest thing about this book is the fact that the story is progressing. There is a degree of discontinuity from the first entry, however, as there’s no real exploration of the marital issues that had bothered the couple before, and their presence in Arizona of all places instead of heading east towards their families was initially jarring (although the rationale is explained). Yet these are minor flaws in a wholly entertaining novel. There’s a twist at the end that should prove interesting for book 3 (or at least is fodder for some new ground), and I am very excited to see where Sarah and David take us next on their road trip eastwards across a zombie-overrun America. I’ll be back for thirds.

And, in that regard, the author does not disappoint. This book picks up a few months after the ending of the last book. The Government has bombed major cities in an attempted to control the zombie population. While getting rid of a few, it has left shells of buildings for zombies to hide in and killed survivors. However, the remaining survivors are finding a way to make the best of a bad situation. They have started making tent settlements, a trade system, and so on. After the adventures of the last book, Sarah and Dave decide to go into business as for-hire zombie killers. And it seems as though business is booming. That is until they get a rather strange client wanting them to capture "live" zombies for medical testing. And, if that fiasco isn't enough, they are hearing rumors of a newer, faster, and smart zombie—bionic zombies. As you can imagine, Sarah and Dave have differing opinions concerning both issues and are stretched to the limit. I found it hilarious that Sarah and Dave started a zombie killing business. Even though she was a little timid about picking up a gun, after the first book Sarah took to killing quite easily. And that doesn't even take into account Dave's mad-Halo-skills! So, to me, it seemed natural. The concept of the bionic zombies was interesting. It stands to reason that there might be a different mutation. I really liked how it played into the book and the story line. I wonder how this new mutation will play into the next book. Dr. Barnes was an interesting character. From the onset, I was distrustful of him. He seemed too good to be true, and he gave me a weird vibe. However, I found Sarah's blind faith to be a little too naive, especially considering everything they had already been through. The ending was a little too campy for me. Without giving anything away, The Kid's ability seemed a little Deus ex machina. Granted, we are kind of led into it by the comment that he is a genius, but . . . It was just too neat and out of the blue for me to appreciate. While this book is very much in the spirit of the other, I felt that it didn't live up to the awesomeness of the first book. Even though they snarky humor was still present, I felt it was too pushed. Further, the book relied too heavily on Sarah's little quips and asides. It ended up just being too over the top and forced. The first one had something special, and it felt as though the author wasn't willing to give this book something uniquely it's own. Even though it was a fast and fun read, I am a little concerned about the next book.

    I know the premise for the "zombie apocalypse" is not a new idea. But somehow, seeing the potential for the "what ifs" and how amazingly easy it would be for some sort of biological weapon, or sorts, released on accident, could spread was disturbing. Something passed with even a small break of the skin, can far too easily clear a wide and fast swath across cities, states or even the country. Eeek. And that is scary. What is worse is what's left behind. The first book in this series was more abou I know the premise for the "zombie apocalypse" is not a new idea.

What is worse is what's left behind. The first book in this series was more about the disaster happening and figuring it out, whereas now in book two they've moved on to "dealing" and trying to make your way in the life (or should I say, the new death). What I enjoy the most about these books, and as it should be, are Sarah and David. I am completely rooting for them all throughout. Separately and together. Even when they seem to each take turns being an idiot. Really I just want them to be able to find a better future somewhere over the rainbow that does not include flesh eating, brains or black sludge. I loved both of their snarky wit, married banter and pop-culture references. Although their new life is full of dangerous and life threatening situations, they don't take themselves too seriously. Most of the time anyway. And The Kid was awesome. I have a daughter the exact same age as this character, so his actions, tween-nature, and situation really hit home for me. I hope we see more of him. The tone of this book wasn't near as full of the humor as the last, but they still managed to keep a light-heartedness to it even as they were kicking (or capturing) zombie ass or staring down the barrel of a gun. Anyway I am anxious for Sarah and David's story to move on to new places. I am glad to say that the end did NOT drop us off a cliff (as I was afraid of when nearing the end) and did not trickily leave me desperate to immediately read the next one. The end is instead a nice little breather to catch my breath before diving in to more zombie infested badlands and killing. And let me just say for the record... FLESH... after hearing it over and over in all of the ways it could be torn, bludgeoned, eaten, rotted, cut, hacked, blackened and oozing.... is NOT MY FAVORITE WORD.

This is the second book of the series Living with the Dead. Think Dawn Of The Dead, only the heroes made it out alive. The survivors of the outbreak live in camps and the situation is dire. Sarah and David drive around in their truck, bitch at each other and pick up odd jobs from people who want some specific zombies cl There is a zombie outbreak, people die, the government bombs cites to stop the worst from happening, it happens anyway. Enter Sarah and David, zombie exterminators extraordinaire. This is the second book of the series Living with the Dead. Think Dawn Of The Dead, only the heroes made it out alive. The survivors of the outbreak live in camps and the situation is dire. Sarah and David drive around in their truck, bitch at each other and pick up odd jobs from people who want some specific zombies cleared out from somewhere. Then rumours start to surface about especially vicious zombies, that are faster and nastier than your run of the mill walking undead. The book tries very hard to be funny and the first 10 pages of the book are so littered with swear words that even I frowned. I think I laughed out loud for the first time around page 80. I wasn’t terribly impressed at first, because the beginning of the book is very shallow and the plot is not exactly complex. But the entertainment factor picked up eventually and I ended up having fun reading this. Mind you, shallow and simple plot—if you don’t figure out immediately, who the bad guy is and what he is up to, you are watching the wrong movies and reading the wrong books. The story is told in first person by Sarah. She fits the typical stereotype of the Urban Fantasy heroine. Good looking, gun-tooting and not shy. I wouldn’t have minded if she had been a bit smarter though. I felt the urge to smack her upside the head several times. And her husband David stays painfully one dimensional. He’s the sarcastic side kick with brawns and superior fire power, who tends to save the day. Sarah supposedly is the brains of the operation. God help them! There was one little plot twist at the end that I didn’t see coming after all. So not all hope is lost, I might even continue reading this series.

    Sarah and David started their own little zombie killing business. True notes left in camps they get their 'jobs'. And they get one from dr. Kevin Barnes, but he doesn't wannt them to kill the zombies but catch them and bring them back to his lab. But how do you catch a zombie? And what's up with all these 'bionic zombies' everybody keeps talking about? This is a fun and quick read. Although it isn't as funny as the first in this series Married with Zombies.

And what's up with all these 'bionic zombies' everybody keeps talking about? This is a fun and quick read. Although it isn't as funny as the first in this series Married with Zombies. The story is told from Sarah's point of view. She is still her girly girl zombie ass kicking self. She and David still pick lots of fights and sometimes they got a bit annoying, they seriously fight over everything. On the other hand the zombie killing got way more professional, they went from toiletseats to axes and shotguns. This and the fact that made a business out of killing zombies gave this a more serious and dark tone to the story. This combined with a lot of action and some serious humerous dialogues made me flip page after page. I did like the story itself better then Married with Zombies. The adding of the mad scientist and the mystery of the 'bionic zombies' definitely gave something extra and made sure there were some creepy zombie moments. The plot wasn't really surprising, you could see it comming from miles away, but non the less still entertaining

    I was really excited to start book #2 as the fearless couple would become entangled into a new series of adventures. Despite the fact that the entire world has crumbled down David and Sarah decide to set up their own business "ZOMBIEBUSTERS" in exchange of food ( loads of choc !!! )/ ammo and for all the living out there who might be in need of a "helping hand". Along the way though things get a tad complicated as they come across a boy Robbie out of nowhere and a nutty scientist Dr.Barnes.

It sort of lacked the snarky humor on Sarah's part while at the same time David has been trying to bring her to reason that woman SERIOUSLY had to snap out of her disillusionment what with Dr. Barnes taking advantage of both of them and his treacherous plans. On the other hand the ending was not something i anticipated to be honest the last couple of chapters were way too predictable for me. Nonetheless I'm looking forward to the third and final book and let's hope for a thrilling happy ending.

They also gain a side kick named, Robbie; he's pretty resourceful 11-year-old who provides many laughs and smart-alecky comments. I didn't read book 1 of this series, and I didn't really need to. Book 2 never really made me feel like I missed a beat. Very entertaining and engaging ride with a great dose of comedy, action, horror, and a touch of romance. I highly recommend this series. I will soon read book 1 and anxiously await book 3.

    I didnt enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed the first one. I suppose the whole dynamic of Sarah and David going through marriage counseling is what made the first one so interesting and funny. But now that they've worked through they're issues the wittiness was missing. There were funny moments just not enough to keep me held on to the story. The introduction of The Kid left more to be desired. I hated to imagine them trying to be parents to this kid they just found.

Not saying they wouldnt have been great parents, it would just seem so cut and paste. Thankfully, there was a nice twist at the end that finally sparked some interest for me and got me back into the story. Since I already have the 3rd book I am going to go ahead and read it. I doubt other wise I would have gone out of my way to purchase it after reading this one. Hopefully the 3rd will make up for what the 2nd was lacking.

    Loved the concept of a husband/wife zombie hunting team. Loved the narrator's (Sarah) voice and snappy dialogue. Loved the zombies. Hated Sarah's sloppy (unbelievable) decision getting her into a whole lot of trouble, then the Mustache Twirling villain, then the rescue by a character who got even less believable every time he showed up on the page. Definite mixed feelings about this one.

    I like this series because the characters are fun to read and people I could believe. I like the way the author has set up the zombie apocalypse world. I felt like this story was a little slower going than the first book, but definitely still good. I am excited to get to the next one.
