Eh?Eh!
This was more of the same, each chapter headed by pithy sayings and our snarky couple making their way in a zombie world. Instead of marriage counseling, this one used business. 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 surv...more

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. Why? Because it's campy and silly and I think David and Sarah are one of the most realistic, cutest couples ever. 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...more

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...more

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 cl...more

Originally Reviewed on The Book Smugglers: http://thebooksmugglers.com/2011/07/o...

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...more

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. The story is told from Sarah's point of...more

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...more

Obiettivo raggiunto. Gli Acchiappazombie di Jesse Petersen ha raggiunto il suo scopo: divertire e appassionare il lettore, raccontandogli, con sarcasmo e humour, una storia post apocalittica.
È un romanzo per teenager, ma che può divertire anche gli adulti. È un romanzo senza troppe pretese, ma piacevolissimo e leggero. È una fiction rosa a base di cervelli marci per perfetti zombie addicted, per i quali non devono mancare delle belle scene splatter.
A colpire di più è lo stile giovane, incisivo...more

This series is awesome! If you're a fan of zombie movies like Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland, then you'll love this. Husband and wife team, Dave and Sarah, are in the Zombie-killing business--and business is a-booming. That is, until they discover a new strain of Zombie; one that is stronger, faster, and smarter. How will they get out of this one? It has you at the edge of your seat. They run into a doctor whose working on a cure, but needs their help to acquire zombies to be his "test subject...more

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...more
Sara
Amazing storyline that stays with you long after the book has finished. Characters were great with their sarcastic wit and memorable quotes. Can't wait to read the next book in the series :)

Got to admit , I love this series. I love anything with zombies in and when I first picked up this series I was intrigued. A married couple going through counselling then watching their therapist eating the previous clients. This series is very enjoyable , plenty of action and comedy , quite tongue in cheek in places.... Well as they say ' a couple that slays together, stays together ' . This second book picks up about 3 months into the apocalypse and David and Sarah are now zombie busters for h...more

I am so deeply satisfied by this book. Flip this Zombie, is a great zombie 'fluff' book and a lovely follow up to Married with Zombies. Jesse Peterson just does a lovely job of writing an entertaining zombie novel that is short and sweet.

Her books are heartfelt, and funny. I cant tell you how many times I have laughed out loud reading Flip This Zombie. Most of my laughs have come from her character Dave. I love the snarky banter back and forth that comes from the fast dialogue. The characters a...more

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 really liked this book. It was a Super fast read because it's a great action story. I love the married characters Sarah and Dave. They are Zombie busters Inc. They come and kill the zombie you've been having trouble with. They find a camp of survivors and times are tough there. Small group holds the crazies and liars and bad guys with a whole bunch of other people. so the couple finds themselves going out to help others earning trade supplies. food and ammo. They stumble across a note asking f...more

This is the second book in a series about a married couple during a zombie apocalypse. In the last one, Sarah and David save their marriage by escaping a zombie-infested Seattle together.

In Flip This Zombie, Sarah and David have the zombie killing down. They're spending the winter in Phoenix, Arizona, and building a brand off their ability to slay zombies for those who are less practiced. Then, there are rumors of a strain of super zombies Sarah dubs "bionics," and they're hired to capture zombi...more

More Zombie slaying fun!!

I just couldn't resist this second installment of a tongue in cheek advice book with a living dead twist. I love campy dystopian zombie stories. The first book was about a couple attending marriage counseling when the zombie attack begins. This one is in the form of business advice since the couple has undertaken a zombie exterminators business. The story again unfolds in first person as the wife relates, with lots of humor, how their business is flourishing and they work to advertize, brand-bui...more

You know how sometimes you go to read a book in a series, so you pick up what you think is the NEXT book in the series, only to realize it’s the book AFTER the book you intended to read, so you start it and completely ruin the ending for that book?

Yeah. That.

Of course, once I totally ruined Flip This Zombie for myself, I knew I still had to go in and read the sucker because endings don’t make books. The story is what matters! And this is a series that I’ve grown to really like because it’s not...more

Flip This Zombie is the second book in the Living With The Dead series. I haven't had the opportunity to peruse book one as yet, but it is not needed to sink your teeth into this book. With quips throughout the story to keep you on track in case you did not read the first one, author Jesse Petersen keeps you involved and entertained with humour, horror and humanities desire to survive, no matter what the circumstances.

David and Sarah are a husband/wife team who decides to make the best out of a...more

In Jesse Petersen's sequel to "Married with Zombies", Sarah and David find themselves living in what remains of the destroyed city of Phoenix making a living as zombie killers for hire. With the success of their business bringing them not always welcome recognition, Sarah and David find themselves agreeing to work with a scientist to help capture zombies in hopes of finding a cure for the zombie disease. Unbeknownst to them, the doctor is actually enhancing the zombies they bring him by making t...more

Just like the first book (Married with Zombies) this book was a good, solid, funny, smooth read. I'd even say this one was better than the first. It manages to be both kind of making fun of the chick-lit genre and the zombie genre yet some how managing to be being kind of faithful to both.

I'm not exactly sure what I liked more about this... I do enjoy the post apocalyptic genre very much and this was solidly set while the first one took place at the very opening of the zombie outbreak. I guess m...more

After the first book, I was really looking forward to the next two in the series. However, I wondered whether the author would be able to keep up with Sarah's snarky humor. 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 r...more

I really enjoyed the first book so I had some high hopes for the sequel, and while I was kind of put off initially, it turned out pretty alright in the end.

"Flip this Zombie" continues where "Married with Zombies" left off -- Sarah and David, whose relationship now rekindled after a near-divorce, have started a zombie-exterminating business. But one particular client doesn't want zombies killed, he actually wants them alive. Thing is, he's a scientist. And he wants to test his serum on the undea...more
Fangs for the Fantasy
Sarah and Dave are zombiebusters – trading with their fellow survivors in the badlands to clear out pods of zombies that are in inconvenient places. It’s a lucrative job (in so far as anything is lucrative after the zombie apocalypse) and they’re beginning to gain some minor celebrity status.

So much so that they have been noticed by Dr. Barnes. A government scientist holed up in a working facility who thinks he has that most precious of holy grails – a cure for zombies.

Sarah and Dave (and their...more

Flip This Zombie is set 3 months or so after Married With Zombies. That's 3 months or so of zombie apocalypse and Sarah and Dave's Zombiebuster's Extermination, Inc business is booming. Sometimes literally. But lately they've been hearing strange reports from their clients and also the folk in the survivor camp nearby. Reports of bigger and slightly more intelligent zombies. Alongside these reports, they've been given an offer by a scientist to catch him some zombies and suddenly they have a lot...more

A Facebook application once told Jesse Petersen that she'd only survive a day in a zombie outbreak, but she doesn't believe that. For one, she's a good shot and two, she has an aversion to bodily fluids, so she'd never go digging around in zombie goo. Until the zombie apocalypse, she lives in the Tucson with her husband and two cats and writes snarky urban fantasy about monsters and zombies. Find...more
