Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues ★★★★★

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues - Diana Rowland

I desperately needed something light and funny, and this was perfect. This second book in the series was almost as much fun as the first, as Angel settles in to her new life and begins to understand something about zombie pathophysiology and even zombie society, such as it is. Of course there is mystery and danger and action, because that's the kind of book it is, but we also get to see a touching side of Angel's relationship with her father, and witness Angel struggle to redefine herself as a person of worth and sense, deserving to be treated (by herself and others) with common dignity.

 

Audiobook, via Audible. Allison McLemore's performance elevates a very good book into a five star read for me.
