I didn't read book 1 of this series, and I didn't really need to. Book 2 never really made me feel like I missed a beat. Very entertaining and engaging ride with a great dose of comedy, action, horror, and a touch of romance. I highly recommend this series. I will soon read book 1 and anxiously await book 3.
Flip this Zombie focuses on what David and Sarah have been doing since the world fell apart and picked itself back up and moved on a little. Considering their zombie killing tactics learned early on, they've set up shop as the go-to-guys for all your zombie killing needs! The plot of Flip this Zombie dips into the dark reality that not all people are good - and if given the opportunity they could very well do some very bad things. But you have the ZombieBusters to call on for help, laughs and a decapitated zombie. There are some seriously awesome parts that I will not spoil, I'll just tell you to get ready to reread some parts and laugh!
I laughed. I got a little squeamish. And I think I'll be sleeping with the lights on tonight.
We've also moved on from the outbreak just occurring in the first novel, and the two bumbling their way through survival to a fair amount of time having passed, society has accepted what is going on, reborn themselves in smaller fortified settlements and basically started over. Dave and Sarah are now experts at dispatching the undead. In fact that's what they're doing now, running an extermination business where for trade such as half a pack of children's band-aids they will risk death or infection to rid a building of others pesky zombie infestation. So we loose a lot of the edge of your seat action from the first novel as they now seemly just run them down with their van, lop off their heads or shoot them in the heads with little effort. Plus it doesn't seem to me to be something that you'd bother doing for so little reward especially when Sarah boasts later in the story that you can just take anything in this massively reduced population world such as whatever luxury car you want or whatever you find when you walk into any house. So why not just scavenge and kill when necessary the odd zombie you find while doing that instead of risking all for half a box of children's plasters.
The don't want to stop reading until the final page factor of the first book isn't there with Flip the Zombie. The story does improve from about half way when the couple now trying to capture rather than kill a zombie for a new client, get a new sidekick named Robbie. In fact that's where a bit of the tension Sarah used to have between herself and her husband sort of reappears when she copes with Robbie's behaviour.
If you've read the first book, although you'll be disappointed, you may want to get read this just to know what happens to the characters. I think there was a room timelines wise for a book set back in Dave's sister's town before jumping so far into the future for this tale and we've have missed out on a lot of potential marriage tension and developing their zombie combat skills through learning by each encounter. I ordered the next book Eat Slay Love along with this after reading the first novel so I will read that too but I'm not sure I would have bothered after this one, if I hadn't already done that. Still the author Jesse Petersen clearly has the talent, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised and the third instalment will be as good as the first.
