Chett and Harry are two recently unemployed construction workers on their way to a weekend of beer, Southern Comfort, and frog gigging at their musty-rusted 1970s RV, parked at their favorite hunting camp, when they stumble on Bob, the mysterious, busty, burqa-clad, non-English speaking beauty just standing in the middle of nowhere on the side of dusty Nine Mile Cutoff in rural Bovina, Mississippi. Then all hell breaks loose.
Their favorite pond is missing. They're being chased by truck driving zombies, dirty cops, UFOs and other ne'er-do-wells. Someone stole Chett's jacked up Scottsdale four-by-four. Zombies are traipsing around their trailer, and crazy Uncle Crank is trying to feed them zombie chicken for dinner. Aided by a classic computer nerd, a crazy man wielding a frying pan, and a space babe who gets nekkid any time someone turns out the lights, follow Chett and Harry as they battle their way across the rural countryside and ultimately save the world.
Why is their pond missing, and why did the Dodge of Death spring from the muddy crater left in its center? Who is Bob and why is she so good with shotguns? Why are they being chased by two really skinny, pale, bald, goatee-clad wierdos? What is the dirty county sheriff hiding? And will Chett and Harry ever make it out alive?
This book is great. the author/narrator has made this book spring to life or death I love it. There isn't a great mass of gore for zombie hard core fans but I am hooked. Its light hearted intelligent pop corn with a bounce along good quality plot and I can't wait for the next one.

This has to be one of the worst audio books I've listened to in a long time. The author is also the narrator and is really dreadful!
Give it a big miss!
Would you consider the audio edition of Fried Green Zombies to be better than the print version?
Yes. The author did a great job doing the different character voices.
What did you like best about this story?
The dry humor. Unfortunately, I know people similiar to the characters in the story and it (the characterizatio) was dead on.
Have you listened to any of John Allen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but I can't wait for the next story.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
This wasn't your average zombie/alien book. At first, I didn't think I would like it. I fell asleep listening and woke up laughing, so I started it over and it was just too funny. The author broke away from the

I enjoyed this audiobook from beginning to end funny at parts ...woooohooo zombies and beer
Ok, the story makes very little sense - and don't hold your breath thinking everything will be explained at the end. I was still scratching my head and wondering what I had listened to at the end of the story. Zombies, aliens and submersible vehicles? Even with the most talented writer, it would be difficult to tie these into a nice package. I don't think the author was serious about making sense though. If his intension was to write a brainless story about some silly subjects.....he succeeded. The dialog is amusing though and the silly plot kept me listening. Less about zombies and more about intergalactic villains. Ridiculous - but semi amusing.
