Publisher's Summary

Dear God a zombie bit Myffaine!

All merry hell breaks loose and life as we know it is in danger of being snuffed out from the planet on what is otherwise not too bad of a Tuesday.

Barry and Myffanie have to negotiate a Zombie apocalypse in an effort to save the market value of the house they bought in Ptthwit five years ago.

An accident in a nearby cosmetics laboratory has unleashed a zombie horde onto the village, one that may take over the entire planet if they don't stop it, or worse completely wipe out the extra value Barry's Garage extension put onto their property.

A laugh riot

Definitely wirth the read/listen.  A light hearted, very funny, yet also very reslustic and relatable take on surviving the in classic zombie apocalypse scenario.  Set in the UK (Wales to be soecific, if I'm not mistaken), the accents and language just made it all the more amusing for me.  Definitely one to add to my favs list!

Welcome to another hilarious world by Simon Carr!

Welcome to another hilarious world by Simon Carr where property values matter...even if zombies are trying to take over. I literally laughed out loud multiple times. I highly recommend this story and really anything written by Simon Carr. Audio Version: Using three narrators is a gamble in my opinion but it really worked for this story! Taff Girdlestone, Noni Lewis, and Emma Clarke all did a great job bringing the story and hilarity to life.

So much laughing to come!

Simon is a funny guy and his books show that he must have been the most fun kid to hang out with. His imagination is like no idea. The idea he comes up with!!!

Okay, once again, we got Zombies, but not your typical ones. There is a difference to how it goes down from alive to well.... Zombie. Come along and have some laughs/belly tickles as a couple people just try to save their little village without being eaten!

Zombies, Co-op employees making up names for customers, and farts. This book has all of that!! I couldn't stop laughing at times.

I received an advance review copy of this book, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

A Zombie Apocalypse?

I find Simon Carr's stories entertaining and this one was no exception; however, I did have to work my way past the first chapter where the posterior cracks got a bit much. The author's creative twist to the zombie apocalypse genre was unique and I enjoyed the story. I liked the way the author took an ordinary couple who were just trying to save the property value of their home and pitted them against a zombie hoard. I recommend this novel to others with the caveat that there was foul language utilized and some of the humor was excessive. I was very entertained by the use of three narrators, Taff Girdlestone, Noni Lewis, and Emma Clarke. They all did an excellent job and their performance added to the story's entertainment. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily posted this review.

A real twist on the old zombie story

This zombie story has an unusual twist in the nature and mechanism of zombiehood. It's also very sedate for a zombie story, coming across like a mashup of Shawn of the Dead and Keeping Up Appearances.

Side-splitting entertainment!

A Zombie Bit Myffanie

Written by Simon Carr

Narrated by Taff Girdlestone, Noni Lewis, and Emma Clarke.

I received a copy of the audio version of the book and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

Barry and Myffanie are perfectly content, going about their day-to-day business, keeping themselves to themselves. They are lucky enough to now live in the picturesque Welsh valley, in the small town of Ptthwit. Unfortunately, an explosion at a Cosmetics lab nearby, sets off a chain of events that find poor Barry and Myffanie totally unprepared.

As I have listened to several other audiobooks by the brilliantly talented Simon Carr, I had an idea what to expect and was not disappointed! From the outset until the resolution, I laughed out loud at the quips and puns included. A Zombie Bit Myffanie is impossible to put down. I constantly had to listen to a little more and then some, even repeating certain parts to whomever I happened to be next to! The author has a side-splitting sense for a plot, characterization and creating cleverly written humour. With a narrative that actively engages the reader in Barry and Myffanie’s quandary, funny scenarios, I very much recommend.

To add further to the imagination of the book, the audio version is brought to life by the amazing narrators. I LOVE the fact that there is more than one narrator, which in itself makes it unique, but Taff Girdlestone is one of the best I have had the pleasure to listn to. His natural skill to audibly act out the character’s lines plus his use of varied dialects is just pure genius.

The book is full of ribald wit but is light-hearted and fantastically entertaining. I can’t wait to read or listen to more from Mr. Carr.

I rate A Zombie Bit Myffanie 5 out of 5 stars.

Zombie High Jinnx

This story is crazy, it's funny and out of this world. The characters are brilliant if the main 2 are totally daft. One of the funniest books I have ever read despite the subject. My favourite characters have got to be the cows! LOL! Highly recommended.
I was kindly given a copy of the book by the author and leave this honest and voluntary review.

Laugh? I Nearly Wet Myself

When an explosion occurs in a cosmetics factory in a small town in the welsh valleys it unleashes a zombie apocalypse on the unsuspecting residents. This is the story of Barry and Myffanie’s struggle to escape and to save the town from destruction.

Laugh out loud funny from start to finish. Simon Carr has accurately captured the British/Welsh sense of humour with the arguing and bickering between the main characters whilst weaving it into a farcical plot that keeps you entertained throughout.

I loved the cows

The narrator fits perfectly with the story and helps to bring it to life with welsh accents that make full use of the dialog.

This is definitely one of the author’s best titles

Laugh out loud lunacy with superb narration

I loved this. It is rude, crude and hilarious, who doesn't love Zombies, Welsh Villages stuck in the past, mad soldiers, talking farm animals and two of the dumbest heroes in history. Loved the writing and especially loved the narration which is flawless adding so much to the story. I like this authors work and this his best yet. Laugh out loud Lunacy. I received a complimentary copy from the author and am leaving a honest voluntary review.

Barry is my hero!!!

I was given a free copy of this for an honest review and I’m so glad I was. The narrators have absolutely nailed it. Barry is my hero!!! Also I’ve never heard so many terms for a place a lady could hide a lava lamp.

This is such a fun book and Barry is so straight laced, the juxtaposition really adds to the excitement. The characters are so pleasant, they’re all lovely, except the brigadier. This is my favourite Simon care book yet. They just keep getting better and better
