    A hell of a good time I read the title and knew I wanted to read the book immediately If glee is your initial reaction to reading the words Badass Zombie Road Trip, then this is the tale for you It s a fun, gross out adventure about two friends on a missionno, not a mission from God More like a mission from Satan Also, there s a zombie, a stripper, and missing body part hijinks Can t go wrong with that combination.

    I love road trips Whether it be heading out with a specific destination in mind or if we just hop in the truck and start driving Road trips almost always lead us to some new and fun discoveryor at least some awesome memories and pictures.In the case of Badass Zombie Road Trip our 2 main characters, Jonah and Dale, truly do end up on a road trip from hell It s a little bit Smokey and the Bandit and a little bit Thelma and Louise with the Devil hot on their tale This has to be one of the fu I love road trips Whether it be heading out with a specific destination in mind or if we just hop in the truck and start driving Road trips almost always lead us to some new and fun discoveryor at least some awesome memories and pictures.In the case of Badass Zombie Road Trip our 2 main characters, Jonah and Dale, truly do end up on a road trip from hell It s a little bit Smokey and the Bandit and a little bit Thelma and Louise with the Devil hot on their tale This has to be one of the funniest and most entertaining books I ve read in a long time Within it s pages you will find action, adventure, romance, some mystery and intrigue and, of course, some devilish antics with the Prince of Darkness himself.I really don t want to go into much detail regarding the story as the summary above says all you need to know to get started The characters are a fun mix Jonah is, pretty much, a goody two shoes, Dale is a bit of a dick and the Devil is actually rather charming, in a manipulative soul stealing burn in hell sort of way As with much of Tonia Brown s work the dialogue on Badass Zombie Road Trip is witty and quite often hilarious A definite must read if you are in need of some fun in your reading I loved it

    A hell of a good time I read the title and knew I wanted to read the book immediately If glee is your initial reaction to reading the words Badass Zombie Road Trip, then this is the tale for you It s a fun, gross out adventure about two friends on a missionno, not a mission from God More like a mission from Satan Also, there s a zombie, a stripper, and missing body part hijinks Can t go wrong with that combination.
