Married with Zombies (Living with the Dead #01) by Jesse Petersen
Married with Zombies (Living with the Dead #01)

SusanH, June 16, 2011

This book is hilarious! With all the new zombie books coming out, it is a breath of fresh air to find one with all the great elements of the classic zombie book and a bit of humor to go with it. You will want to continue with the series after reading this first book. The horror and gore in this book is not over the top but has just the right element for the zombie book lover. Highly recommended!

The Last Town on Earth by Thomas Mullen
The Last Town on Earth

SusanH, January 1, 2011

It is the autumn of 1918 and a world war and an influenza epidemic rage outside the isolated Utopian logging community of Commonwealth, Wash. In an eerily familiar climate of fear, rumor and patriotic hysteria, the town enacts a strict quarantine, posting guards at the only road into town. A weary soldier approaches the gate on foot and refuses to stop. Shots ring out, setting into motion a sequence of events that will bring the town face-to-face with some of the 20th-century's worst horrors. Mullen's ambitious debut is set against a plausibly sketched background, including events such the Everett Massacre (between vigilantes and the IWW), the political repression that accompanied the U.S. entry into WWI and the rise of the Wobblies.
Great read!
