What a fun slapstick zombie ride! The Savini Charter School is in deep trouble as first one kid and then a pair of adults and yet another kid come down zombie. Jonas and Judah get called out to do their zombie extermination thing. Of course, no one relishes killing kids (or if you do, then you’re a bit messed up). The brothers do their best to follow the posted rules about weapons and tobacco on school property, because they are polite fellows. Ha!
Meanwhile, JJ and Xanadu head over to the school as well and by the time they get there, they provide some much needed backup. I have mixed feelings about JJ as so much of her role is defined by her boobs. Sometimes I really enjoy her humor and her practical nature. Other times, she’s totally insecure and uses her sexuality as a crutch. But she also has Xanadu who is an awesome dog.
The brothers meet a wonderful nerdy girl named Nantucket (cue questionable limericks) who goes by Nat. She’s into science and home made explosives. This odd hobby comes in very useful for the crew as they have to deal with the growing number of zombies. Nat rocks and I really hope she takes the zombie exterminators under her wing. I can see her being their on-call mad scientist.
All together, it was entertaining and wacky. The characters are unique and the story held my attention all the way through. 4.5/5 stars.
The Narration: Ian McEuen was awesome! His performance for this book was outstanding. He really brings the characters to life and he sounds like he’s fully enjoying the story as well. All his character voices are distinct and his female voices are feminine. I really liked his voice for Nat and his rough, rude voice for the principle. 5/5 stars.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Grivante. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
