Summary

Hope was playing five-card draw with undead Elvis when the world ended.
Before the world ended, Hope was a down-and-out virgin stripper. Now she's pregnant with a baby prophesied to be the world's salvation. Undead Elvis promises her that Graceland is the only safe place left even though the rest of the world has become sand and ash. Hope must undertake the perilous journey across a broken, unfamiliar landscape to reach it.
Although she finds precious few allies and friends on her path, the black moments never seem to stop and somehow, she must find the resolve she needs in order to birth her child and ultimately heal the world that seems far beyond redemption.

Hope and Undead Elvis deal with the apocalypse

If the phrase 'undead elvis' gets on your nerves then you will not enjoy this book as it is said so often and I wish the author had switched to calling him Elvis after the point had been firmly established early on.

Despite this minor irritation, I did enjoy this post-apocalyptic road trip of a novel told from the perspective of the titular heroine, Hope, as she journeyed to Graceland meeting and surviving many strange characters along the way.

At few times the religious stylings of this book were a little too heavy-handed, but on the whole, the initially whacky premise of a stripper (pregnant by immaculate conception) travelling to find Graceland with an undead version of Elvis after a vague disaster caused most of the word's population to vanish did actually work well.

I thought the performance of the narrator gave a good impression of the kind of jaded, world-weary character that Hope was in this book and she also gave suitably distinctive performances for the supporting cast of characters too.

Overall, I wouldn't say that this was my favourite post-apocalyptic book, but it was a fun and enjoyable one that had more depth than you might expect from the basic premise at the start.

Good Listen, thank you, thank you very much

Entertaining listen. The story is silly at times and deadly serious at others. I believe the author had a lot of fun writing this and I had fun listening. Narration is good, especially for a female trying to do an Elvis character.

Not Sure About This One

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This one started out strange and got stranger by the minute. Undead Elvis, world turning into a desert wasteland, Memphis and Graceland are one of the few havens for what is left of humanity. Learning to live off of the land and the few plants that will grow all combined to create an interestingly strange story. There was no real cliffhanger but enough of a teaser at the end to let you know there will be another book. The narration was good.The narration kept me listening until the end.
