Publisher's Summary

Sandra and Molly were two typical office workers enjoying their lives, which consisted primarily of going to work, shopping and looking for cute guys. Then their world came to a disastrous end brought about by a fast-acting, airborne virus that decimated the world's population. Now the girls live in the abandoned office building in which they once worked surrounded by a new and dangerous landscape; one where mutated animals roam the streets and giant birds soar through the empty skies; where frightening humanoid bat creatures have appeared to challenge humans for supremacy of the earth. What are two attractive, intelligent, single girls supposed to do now...other than merely hunt for food and try to stay alive? Well, there are still malls, albeit much less crowded, and though rare, a few cute guys still out there. So even if the apocalypse sucks, Sandra and Molly are not about to let it cramp their style. Writer Peggy Chambers offers up a truly unique, twisty adventure with two of the most likeable heroines you'll ever meet.

Snarky Gone Sour

Any additional comments?

It is a bit hard to review this without being influenced by the bad narration. The narrator sounds like he's channeling voice recognition software and runs sentences together with little inflection.
The story goes as follows, two self professed pretty girls survive epidemic and look for cute clothes and cute men. Then there are bat people, spiders, giant mutant birds, yoga and an interminable recipe for sour dough bread. Why one needs a recipe for sour dough bread in a post apocalypse book is still undetermined. Somewhere along the line a cure is discovered and the world is mostly saved.
Overall, a pretty uneven effort that is less amusing then one would hope.

New Twist on Zombie Genre.

What made the experience of listening to The Apocalypse Sucks the most enjoyable?

This is a solid zombie story with unique elements. The way the virus spreads and the way it affects people are original ideas.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Molly is a fun character with an optimistic attitude. She doesn't let something like the apocalypse keep her from enjoying shopping or dressing well.

Which character – as performed by Adam Zens – was your favorite?

Adam Zens gives Dr. Allen an interesting voice. Dr. Allen makes the best of a bad situation. He helps others and looks for a cure even while being a victim of the mutation.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is a zombie apocalypse book. It is light and entertaining as that is its purpose. It is not deep or moving.

Any additional comments?

This is an entertaining story. It is relatively clean. Not overly gory, but plenty of action. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
