I prefer audio. its easier to multitask. i had to buy the 5th on Kindle. i liked it. i plan on buying it and listening to it if it comes out on audio.
Mike of course! I really liked the dog Bear. i was very sad about the poor pup. Mike because, i know more about him then anyone else i guess.
i loved the narrator! his voice sounds age appropriate. His BT voice sounds right on too! i like his different accents. his female voices sound alright as well.
i mostly laughed. i think i cried when Bear died! that really got me! i thought i might be scared but it wasn't that bad. it is a good thing though. i dont know if i would have read/listened to the others. i prefer slightly scary and mostly funny with some sad mixed in.
I wish all of Mark Tufo's books were on audio.
The main guy because he loves zombie but at the beginning he tell about the zombie movies and he says 28 days later is a zombie movie it's not. it's a disease that activates the rage and they do die after 28 days
It was not really a zombie novel which really irritated me, it was more of a ghost story with supernatural powers at work. It was more like King's The Stand, than a good zombie book, I would not recommend this for zombie enthusiasts, but more for people looking for a general humor/horror combo.
The narration of the audiobook was great! Easy to listen to and follow.
The best part of this story is that most guys can relate to the main character and the things that are going through his head during crucial moments. Because of that it is laugh out loud funny at times!
The narrator has an every guy kind of voice that really adds credibility to the story because he sounds like at least one person most of us know.
I did cry laughing.
This is the fist, and by far the best book in the series. Not that the rest of the series is bad, just not as awesome as this first book. The lead character is a hoot, and is riddled with ADD, but I enjoyed his inner musings, and ponders. He is sarcastic hip, and fun, if a little crude at times. The story is easy to fallow, fast paced, and very entertaining. If you are looking for a literary treasure, or award winning pro's, look else where, but if you are looking for an entertaining well narrated book to pass the time, this will do nicely.
I am a big Zombie fan, and this book fits in with most good zombie books.
The main character is like a combination of Alan Alda (from MASH), Bruce Willis (from Die Hard), and Snake Pliskin (escape From New York).
Then The story is like Deep Rising, any Steven King book, add Zombies, mixed with Family Guy.
The only part I don't really like, is the Steven King part. I love SK's books, but with Zombies.... not so much. This part comes in the "magic" of psychic Retards, and possible alternate universes. This becomes a lot more so, near the end (as in Steven King books), and much more so in the Second Book in this series.
Personally, I prefer more grounded parameters. As soon as you introduce magic, or Psychics, any situation can be overcome.
The Family guy element gets a little distracting, as it pulls you out of the moment, but it also adds to the style of the book, as well as all the outright laughs. This is the Random non-sequiters that abound in this book.
This is a great book, and the reader does a fantastic job.
This made my driving from West Coast to East Coast a bit more of a pleasurable.
I would rank zombie fallout in my top 10 book list.
BT, because he is so freaking funny
Not really. I wish he changed his voice more and put a bit more into the story. It was good, but when he does not change his voice, it makes it hard.
This book makes me laugh every time, and I have read it multiple times!
Maybe. The technical detail is a bit too sparce and inconsistent. And the mindset of the main character is way off. It's like what some young urban writer would imagine a former marine's mindset to be, though it's way off what reality would be. Too many obvious and illogical mistakes for the expediency of an easily written story. And the author is obviously out of touch with the reality of gun ownership in the U.S.
The voice work was clear and appropriate to the text.
Ok, confession, I did buy 5 of the fallout books. Here is what you need to know. If you are looking for a realistic scary what if (insert any Pandemic) were to happen, this is not it. It is however entertaining, funny and you can get sucked into the story, but if you do you should know the Talbot books go on forever. I purchased the first series except for book 5. You could dump $100 into these easy. It can be quite slapstick and toward the end books some wacky and convoluted stuff develops because of course the story must go on and you must part with more $. It's not worth the credit unless you can find nothing else you're interested in. The narrator does a great job and is perfect for the Talbot character. The story is between ok and well, silly. But if you're looking for a lighter zombie story (except for book 5 which apparently is gory) this is for you.
I will listen to NO boring book. Old Fav's,Card, King , Hobb. New Fav's, Hill, Scalzi, Sawyer, Interested in Lansdale, Crouch, Konrath
Potatoes.(A line from the book, not a description of the book.)
This is a sitcom, plain and simple. Almost every line is an attempt at humor. There are some really funny lines and lots of misses. I will have to say the book is never boring. I will have to also say the book is never great. Tufo shows he has some imagination and that he can write. In this book though he could not figure out if he wanted to be funny or serious and ended up being neither as a whole. Fart jokes abound in this and sometimes he will drag the same fart joke out for several minutes.
The whole book is done in first person and the main character says everything in a smirkingly way. I did not like the character at first, put he grew on me. In parts the book is very gross and the humor does not relieve you from it, it just makes it grosser.
This has a audience, it has gotten some really good reviews, the Zombie Queen even gave it four stars. It is not for me and I will not be following this series. If Tufo has written a serious scary book, I will read that, I am just not into one liners.
