This book was okay I guess. It was actually really ridiculous.

Ridiculous things kept happening. I know its a zombie book, and an entirely made up senario, but there is no reason for it to be as incredibly unrealistic as it was. It starts out fine. And then they find a zombie-eating lion in the desert. That’s also tame. And decides to join in their wacky adventures!

Seriously, the things that happened in the book fit in the Zombieland movie nicely. Whenever they find themselves in an impossible to escape situation, the lion magically appears and saves them, or some other incredibly coincidental and well timed help arrives.

It seemed a bit like some child’s imagination. Of course the main character is an awesome zombie fighter, and this super hot rock star is into her, and the lion immediately comes to a chosen name and becomes bffs with her, and obviously a bunch of other things I won’t mention as they would spoil it, but essentially mean the main character has ridiculously good luck.

Aside from the ridiculousness (I feel like I’m in Harry Potter fighting a Bogart for how many times I’ve said it), its a decent enough book. Not a masterpiece, but if you’re bored, and like zombies, and the Zombieland movie, why not.

This book had a very slow start. It was more about the couple`s issues trying to get over their inability to get pregnant than the virus. It also a major cliff-hanger ending, and with the book being so short, it was as if they ended it just as it was getting interesting. There isn’t much to say about it. Once I got into it I read it in just a couple hours its so short.

Fresssshhhh

I’ve been watching a ton of Fresh Prince lately. I watched it growing up, which in hind sight is weird. 

 

I remember asking my mom if we could change the channel, and she was like no. She usually likes the CSI and crime type shows, so FP doesn’t fit. I know she also likes shows like Reba, but thats because Reba is hilarious. I should have known that it was hinting at my mom’s silly side that I didn’t notice until I became an adult myself. Now its a funny story to tell my friends whose own parents won’t watch it. 

 

I’m also having a hard time connecting Will Smith the Fresh Prince with Will Smith the-guy-whose-children-are-getting-acting/singing-ops-just-because-their-parent-is-Will-Smith.
