I initially sat back more than a little shocked at Tonia Brown’s book Badass Zombie Road Trip. I went into it with no expectations or knowledge of what it was about, and when the f-bombs started dropping I laughed, paused the book and did some research into what exactly I was getting myself into. If you give Badass Zombie Roadtrip a chance, you definitely need to know what you’re getting into. First off, BZRT isn’t a post apocalyptic novel per se. There’s really only a single zombie character in the book and he and the other main character are involved in a wacky trip across America to regain his soul. It was sort of stolen by the Devil, you see. In a traffic stop. Sort of. Trying to summarize the plot of BZRT wouldn’t do it any justice, so I won’t. I will however cover some of the things you should know about the book. Jonah and Dale do NOT shy away from lengthy discussions about sex and gore. I would venture to say that 50% of their interactions revolve around moving the plot forward, and the other 50% are them ragging on each other in a humorous, but potentially very offending fashion. If you’re thin skinned about any kind of racy humor, you probably won’t appreciate their scenes, and they’re the book. While funny and well written, I do think the two character’s are a bit over the top. Intentional as this may be, some of their conversations go on about sex (or in one long section of the book a missing thumb) for a bit too long, and it drags out the story and made it a little less entertaining for me. BZRT strikes me as a strong homage to Neil Gaiman’s and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens, and that’s very high praise from me. I would also add that it feels like Tonia Brown channeled Kevin Smith into her writing for this and while I would normally be thrilled for that, it does make the book a strange, off-kilter experience. I enjoyed it, but I can see how this is not the cup of tea for the faint hearted, or for those seeking out a traditional post-apocalyptic story, or one with lots of action. Expect crude laughs in spades and you’ll love this book. Despite a few moments of audio echo in the performance John Voorhees does a wonderful job being very theatrical throughout. He jumps between Satan, Dale and Jonah with a zeal that’s hard not to enjoy and when Candy the stripper (You knew that was coming, right? The name?) his rendition of her entertains, and her presence makes the book more enjoyable as well. Badass Zombie Roadtrip is a trip alright, and I hope you pack well and expect some fun.

This book is great. I read it in two days, couldn't put it down! Funny, quirky, and interesting. Any book that has a zombie, a stripper, and the devil is okay by me.

First I'd like to say, I did enjoy this book. It has a good story line. The only problem I had was the over kill of foul language and obscebities. Don't get me wrong! I don't mind them in a book. I just feel that the book would still be good if not better if it was cut back a little, because really, even the Devils mouth was cleaner. I'm sure if you knew me, at some point you may hear those word come out of me. But not on an hourly, daily, or weekly occasion.

This is the first book I've read by Tonia Brown and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. She is one funny lady!! The dialogue that takes place between the 2 main characters is hilarious. More than once, their topic of conversation had me laughing out loud. I don't like to give details of the books I review because I think it's better when the reader goes into a book blindly but, I will tell you that Dale and Jonah's friendship is pretty relatable. In most cases I think you either have friends like this or you know of a friendship like this. For me, that's what made it more humorous. I know a couple guys like this and could totally picture 2 young guys having these conversations. Putting the humor aside, there is a very real and very deadly situation that arises when Jonah decides to take a little detour on their way to Reno. I love how this book shows you just how far a true friend will go to save the other. It really is very sweet (although Jonah and Dale would NEVER admit to that). If you're looking for a fresh, funny, and original story to read, check this out!! It is DEFINITELY one Badass road trip!!

This story had it all. Drama, humor, thrills, angst...and more than a couple of "ewww" moments. Not your traditional zombie plot with mindless bloody attacks. I recommend this to any horror fan that enjoys a bit of humor dabbled in through out the story.

This was an excellent read. Witty, funny, and delightfully crass. Who could ask for more. Honestly, I hope the author is pursuing screenplay adaption. This would make a hilarious movie. Definitely highly recommended.
