* I received a free copy of this audiobook from AudioBookBlast in exchange for an honest review.

** This audiobook is not suitable for listeners under the age of eighteen, nor is it suitable for people who are easily offended or who dislike profanity and crude sexual descriptions.

With that said, this audiobook is hilarious. It is a mixture of horror and comedy. The author mixes those two genres in a way that will have listeners laughing out loud.

Jonah and his best friend, Dale set out on a road trip to Reno, Nevada. They have booked a gig at a Reno casino for one night. The two friends are a duo and they are not very talented, but they love to perform.

Dale tells Jonah that the only place he can’t go is to California, but he won’t say why or what would happen if he did go there.

With a couple days to spare before their gig, as they are Driving towards Reno, Dale falls asleep. Jonah decides to help his friend face his fears and to drive into California while Dale sleeps.

As soon as they cross the border their lives take an unexpected turn for the bizarre.

Suddenly they are on a road trip that involves a zombie, a stripper and Satan himself.

If something can go wrong, it does and Dale and Jonah find themselves in a race for their immortal souls.

This is NOT your average zombie story. It is unique. I know that people say that word a lot: “unique”. But this book truly is.

The narration is excellent. John Voorhees has talent in spades. Each character’s voice is so distinctive that listeners will assume that there is more than just one narrator. His pacing is spot-on and he definitely has a flair for the dramatic. His depiction of the voice of Satan contains the perfect mix of condescension, disdain and casual evil. I will definitely seek out more books narrated by John Voorhees.

If you are a fan of dark comedy, this audiobook is for you.

I rate BAD ASS ZOMBIE ROAD TRIP as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
