Reasons to read My Life as a White Trash Zombie:
- you love dark graveyard humour
- you like reading about people finding their inner strength and willpower (surprising themselves in the process)
- you like a protagonist who isn't of the I-am-going-to insult-and/or-hit-everyone-I talk-to-because-some-readers-consider-that-a-mark-of-a-strong-woman variety
- zombies
- a bit of a mystery thrown in (someone turned her into a zombie, there's a serial killer on the loose)
- you want to read a decent first book in a series If any of the above looks good to you, then go for it. You won't be disappointed.
I liked Angel Crawford a lot. I rooted for her every single moment. She starts as a walking stereotype (that title is a dead giveaway), but she grows into something much more. The author took a stereotype and used it in the best way possible. Angel's life is pretty messed up. But by the end of the book, I even felt sorry for her father (a bit).
As for the ending, that was satisfying.

And another thing, even though My Life as a White Trash Zombie starts this series, it doesn't end with a cliffhanger.
It doesn't need one. As the first book it does its job pretty well. I am interested.

I've read this, but I checked the audible sample too. It is hilarious. ( )

Angel ist ungebildet, sarkastisch, und sich vollkommen bewusst, dass sie ein Loser und White Trash ist. Dennoch möchte sie das ändern. Sie möchte kein Loser sein. Sie möchte kein Müll sein. Sie möchte auch nicht in einer Müllhalde wohnen. So ist My Life as a White Trash Zombie nicht nur voller Humor, sondern leicht ernste Züge schleichen sich darunter. Die jedoch zwei Sätze später wieder von Angels Mundwerk herausgerissen werden. Dennoch ist das Buch vor allem über eines: Den Vorsprung, den Angel erhält, um ihr Leben in den Griff zu bekommen. Auch, wenn sie zuerst dafür sterben musste. Und nun ständig Gehirne essen muss.

Zugegeben, dieses Buch ist nichts für Zombie-Zombiefans, die auf brutale Tode warten damit der Zombie die graue Masse lutschen kann. Angel isst immerhin Fertiggehirn und durch ihre Arbeit als Leichenchauffeur bekommt sie Gewalt nur an ihrem Ende zu sehen. Es ist auch keine typische Zombieapokalypse ausgebrochen, bei der man Menschen im puren Überlebensmodus beobachten kann. Es geht einfach nur um Angel und ihr Zombieleben im Trailer ihres Vaters.

Auch dieses Buch ist in der Ich-Perspektive geschrieben, was interessant ist, da Angel am Anfang nicht nur kindisch-rotznäsig ist, sondern sich auch nicht wirklich für andere Menschen interessiert. So verbringt man die meiste Zeit tatsächlich nur mit Angel, viele andere Charaktere werden höchstens gestreift. Trotzdem ist man ständig auf jeder Seite dabei, Angel gedanklich anzufeuern, man will, dass sie Erfolg hat; man will, dass sie ihren Selbsthass ablegt; man will, dass sie es den Menschen zeigt, die sie respektlos behandeln.

Und man will verdammt noch mal jede Seite inhalieren bis das Buch beendet ist.

Ausserdem ist das Cover supertoll. ( )

Fun zombie tale with a snarkish troubled main character. Great quick read with plenty of chuckle time thrown in. ( )

Fun little take on zombie stories. The fact that this story starts with Angel completely in the dark with her situation, and slowly trying to figure it out, just makes everything that much better. ( )
