Book Review Of “Anna And The Apocalypse” By Katharine Turner and Barry Waldo @FierceReads @AATApocalypse and @BarryWaldo
School’s out for the end of the world.
Anna and the Apocalypse is a horror comedy about a teenager who faces down a zombie apocalypse with a little help from her friends.
Anna Shepherd is a straight-A student with a lot going on under the surface: she’s struggling with her mom’s death, total friend drama, and the fallout from wasting her time on a very attractive boy. She’s looking forward to skipping town after graduation–but then a zombie apocalypse majorly disrupts the holidays season. It’s going to be very hard to graduate high school without a brain.
To save the day, Anna, her friends, and her frenemies will have to journey straight to the heart of one of the most dangerous places ever known, a place famous for its horror, terror, and pain…high school.
This novel is inspired by the musical feature film, Anna and the Apocalypse. (From Goodreads)
Thank you Imprint (Fierce Reads) for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 3 out of 5 Stars.
Happy Halloween Everyone! May the candy be good, the tricks be fun, and the ghouls and goblins be aplenty!
If you know me, you know that I love Zombies, like all things Zombies. So being approached to review a funny/dark/creepy Zombie book, that is also going to be a Zombie Musical Movie, I had to. I would have been insane to pass on this.
And this book was fun, and sad, and everything you’d expect from a teenage zombie book. It wasn’t too gory for me, and it really did not scare me, so I think most readers will be okay with this one. I felt like this was The Breakfast Club, Meets Shaun Of The Dead, Meets Zombieland. Quite the cool mashup. I loved Anna, I thought she was pretty quick ass, and her being a smart girl, gave her an edge over everyone else.
This was a fun read, full of bad jokes, silly puns, and the crazy lives of teenagers, thrown together to fight zombies, to save themselves and their families. Going to be very interested in seeing this movie. Both Turner and Waldo wrote a good book, and right in time for the upcoming Holiday season, when all the other books are going to be warm, feel good, cozy Christmas stories. We get these badass teens, stomping Zombies! Check out the trailer of the movie below!
