White Trash Zombie Gone Wild Audiobook

4 Hearts

The end of the How The White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back, Angel was showing symptoms of her old self. As a matter of a fact, the final scene, she is hanging out with her ex-boyfriend Randy. Randy is not a good influence on Angel. I was not liking where this was going. I did reserve my judgement to see where this storyline was going before I started throwing too much of a fit. Let’s just say that Angel had a tough road in this book.

For most of the book, Angel is on her own to handle Zombiefest. Most of the major players in the Tribe have gone after Christie Cherish. Add all of this pressure on to the fact that Angel is having some addiction issues from the V-12 that she took in the previous book, and things get a little harried for Angel. But let’s get real, when are things not harried for Angel.

Angel makes some really bad decisions in this book. She puts herself on the line trying to protect people she shouldn’t be protecting. She doesn’t trust the people she should be trusting. There is lots of redneck drama. This book really put the “White Trash” in White Trash Zombie.

Son of a pissing hell bitch. This was a mess wrapped in a shitstorm and stuffed into a clusterfuck.

This kinda sums up poor Angel’s luck in this book. It seems like nothing seems to go her way. Some of it was because of poor choices that she made. There are other issues because, Angel being Angel, put others in front of herself.

White Trash Zombie Gone Wild Audiobook Narration

4 Hearts

Once again, Allison McLemore nails the narration of this series. She just has Angel’s voice down pat. This is an audio only series for me. Her ability to handle all the different different voices, and not just the hillbilly ones, really makes the difference in the story. I know the title suggests that all the characters are rednecks, but really, the majority of the characters are not. If you haven’t started this series yet, or even if you have, I highly recommend that you give this series a try on audio.

Diana Rowland has lived her entire life below the Mason-Dixon line, uses “y’all” for second-person-plural, and otherwise has no southern accent (in her opinion.) She attended college at Georgia Tech where she earned a BS in Applied Mathematics, and after graduation forgot everything about higher math as quickly as possible.

She has worked as a bartender, a blackjack dealer, a pit boss, a street cop, a detective, a computer forensics specialist, a crime scene investigator, and a morgue assistant, which means that she’s seen more than her share of what humans can do to each other and to themselves. She won the marksmanship award in her Police Academy class, has a black belt in Hapkido, has handled numerous dead bodies in various states of decomposition, and can’t rollerblade to save her life.

She presently lives in south Louisiana with her husband and her daughter where she is deeply grateful for the existence of air conditioning.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. I just bought the first books in the series for my library, we’re planning an exhibition on zombies for Halloween ^^

    • These are some of my favorite zombie books. They are the only ones I’ve read where the characters are functioning zombies. I hope you enjoy.

  2. I really should give this series a try, I have the first book on my to-read list, but I don’t own a copy yet. I heard great things about this series and I enjoyed this author her other series so far, even though I am behind with that one. Sounds like Angel got some bad luck in this book. I skimmed your review as I don’t want to spoil myself for previous books in the series.

    • Angel can be a bit of a train wreck at times. She definitely is in book one, but things were starting to go better for her. This one she wasn’t so lucky. I hope you get a chance to try it. I actually like this series better than her dragon series, though I enjoy both.

  3. I don’t know why I haven’t picked up this series yet. I don’t normally do the zombie thing, but I can tell this is different and sounds quirky enough to give me some fun. Looks like this heroine gets herself into lots of trouble.

    Nice review, Melanie!

    • This one is different because the zombies are the characters. They aren’t dumb shambling corpses like they are in the movies. Here, they are dead and have to have brains to survive (like vampires with blood), or they become like the zombies you see on TV.

  4. I’ve got one audiobook in my que ahead of this one and then I’m starting it. So hopefully next weekend.

  5. I haven’t read this series *cries*

    Have you caught episodes of iZombie? Is it like this? It’s on Netflix and I’d like to know if it’s any good.

    • I have watched iZombie. I actually feel that it could almost be cited for copying this series. There is enough of a difference for it to be legal, I think. I think this series is way better than the TV show. The TV show started off okay, but I got bored with it. It just didn’t seem to go anywhere, IMO.

  6. Totally skimmed your review..I own it and hope to lose myself in some zombie humor on my holiday break 🙂 cause nothing says Christmas like a zombie!

    • “Nothing says Christmas like Zombies”, you crack me up. LOL 🙂

  7. I think I’m going to restart this series via audio, I’ve only read book one in paperback before.

    • I started off reading this series. I don’t think it was on audio at the time. I think I started the audios after two books were out. Book three, I went straight to audio. I will from now on. This narrator is fantastic. I hope you enjoy.

  8. I just can’t bring myself to read these. The covers creep me out, and as much as they are well loved, I just don’t think I’d enjoy them. Glad you did!!

    • I love the covers, they are some of my favorite on the market today.

  9. I have the first book but I still need to read it (so late…) but I’m glad to see it’s still strong like that.

  10. I have heard so many awesome things about the audiobook version of this series! I have read book one and am waiting for book 2 to be available at the library. One of these days I want to try the audiobooks because every one is always saying they are excellent!

    • They are wonderful. You could always request the library purchase the audiobooks. My library is great about buy audiobooks, if they can get physical copies. Mine isn’t very good about digital, but I know Jennifer, The Book Nympho’s library is great about digital.

  11. For some reason I gave up on this series after third book. I loved the covers, though.
    I’m glad you are still enjoying it.

    • I know several people who have given up on this series. I still love it. There are some things that drive me crazy. I was not very happy to see Angel backslide a bit in this book.
