Married with Zombies by Jesse Petersen was a great book that took a humorous spin in blending zombie horror into a story about a young couple trying to make their marriage succeed. A straight up zombie story or relationship novel would have been easy to pass by, but in combining the two - and poking fun and the stereotypes in each - Petersen weaves a unique and amusing tale. David and Sarah were well-drawn characters and came across as very real people. They're an everyday man and wife armed with knowledge from a heap of Hollywood slasher films that happen to do an above average job at battling the undead.
One of my favorite parts of this novel was the chapter headings. Each one combined cliche relationship adages with tips for surviving zombie attacks. A few examples were, "Balance the workload in your relationship. No one person should be responsible for killing all the zombies," and "Put the small stuff into perspective. It's better to be wrong and alive than right but eating brains." This offbeat humor might not appeal to everyone, but for those that are amused, Married with Zombies is definitely a fun book to read!
