This was a funny concept, a zombie fighting reality show, and humorous ideas were incorporated all though it. However, there were many missed opportunities where there was a good idea that wasn't explored well. Also, the author's political bent was very apparent which wasn't necessarily a bad thing, but it wasn't the reason I pick up escapism fantasy, though I am interested to see if there will be a second season.

Most zombie novels start with the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse where the worlds populations has already been decimated. This one though played for laughs and not horror has an increasing zombie threat, but the threat is mainly contained by professional zombie exterminators and police.

This story also has another mindless and soulless horde to give affright to anybody - that is bureaucrats who regulate zombie extermination making it harder for practitioners to effectively practice their art.

"Hell's Kitchen" with heart. Pretty much sums it up :). Neeta's got to whip her students into shape, so they can learn to slice and dice zombies. She's not the heartless terror that Chef What's-his-name is, but she can't afford to be soft when dealing with the undead.
I laughed SO hard while reading Neeta Lyffe. But humor is not Karina's only strong point. The book has an actual plot and real characterization--two things that often lack in parody and humor writing. I became a fan of Karina's writ

Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator by Karina Fabian . The title alone made me want to read this book. The main character is a woman named Neeta Lyffe and she’s a zombie hunter, that right there tells you what to expect and to someone like me who wants some comedy with their horror, it screams buy me. Another thing the title of this book does is give you a hint of what to expect from the story.

In the 2040's zombies have become a problem and the world needs zombie exterminators. One of the best zomb

Part horror, part comedy, part character study of a modern woman trying to balance career and love life, this book is a pure delight. As promised in the title, Neeta Lyffe makes her living by killing zombies. One would think this would make for a life of non-stop excitement and universal admiration, and one would be wrong. Set firmly in our world, although a few decades in the future, the story does not shy away from pitfalls of modern life. Our heroic zombie killer has to deal with lawsuits, mo ...more

This is a fun romp through the zombie genre that is more akin to Shaun of the Dead than to the more "serious" zombie books I've read (World War Z, The Reapers Are The Angels).

The zombie apocalypse is actually somewhat in balance at the point in which this book takes place. Neeta Lyffe is following in her mother's footsteps as a zombie exterminator. Due to some legal problems she is in need of extra income which is why she agreed to participate in a television reality show in which she trains wan

Neeta Lyffe: Zombie Exterminator by Karina L. Fabian is one of “those” zombie novels. With the most ridiculous title for a novel ever and cover art that looks like poorly written fan fic porn, only a hard core zombie fan is going to pick it up and give it a chance, and that is a shame, because this is actually a well written and entertaining novel with a great message and a hilarious plot.

Written 30 years or so after zombies start appearing, we the reader are introduced to Neeta Lyffe a professi

Ok, so I never thought I would read a zombie book, for starters, but when I was asked to record the audiobook for it I thought: what the heck. Sure.
And that was the reluctant beginning to what then made me a huge fan of Karina Fabian. OMG! This was the first time I've ever had to re-record because it was so funny I couldn't stop laughing. Karina has a delightful, mildly demented sense of humor and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to anyone who likes to laugh. Whether zombies are your thing or not i

I don't even LIKE zombie fiction, but this book turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected. The "cutscenes" from the zombie documentary really added character to the storyline and allowed the author to gracefully build up Neeta's world without making the explanations feel like a tedious infodump. I initially cringed over some of the stereotypes on the reality show, but then I admitted to myself that in the real world, these are just the people who get picked to entertain the masses at the e ...more

Though this is a book filled with humor, it also explores some deeper themes, which I appreciated. I'm not usually one to read horror anymore (did plenty of that in my youth, enough to last a lifetime), but though this has "zombie" in the title, I'd argue that it's a book more about human nature than it is about zombies. I'll be in line to read the next book, if there is one. Really enjoyed this one!
