I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
This book came across as so much like any other zombie story. It bored me and I didn't finish listening to it. Maybe it got better but it didn't keep me interested.
I would recommend this one for lovers of the zombie-Appocalypse genre. Entertaining with some dry, wry humor & family love & loyalty.
This one is true to the genre but not a closer fit to any other novel.
I enjoyed the outbreak scenes most.
Several chuckles joined me with this novel.
Yes, it was great.
Don't care, just enjoyed the book.
No comments, just enjoyed the book.
I only have the audio edition
The gun related humor
Herring it performed helps to visualize the character better
I born a long time ago and grew up to be who I am today.
There are a lot of Zombie novels out there, so why this one? Because it's fun! Tufo manages to give us a protagonist who's facing a horde of Zombies while keeping his priorities straight like the fact that he arms his kids with guns for back up but has to promise his wife he won't get her "baby boys" killed. And then knowing hordes of Zombies are outside but his dog needs to go for a walk. This isn't a story about killing Zombies either - something else that seems to be the focus of most Zombie myth. If the Walking Dead has a Situationial Comedy on CBS it would be Zombie Fallout. The gore and tension is often mixed with humor and laugh out loud moments as Mike swears "I'm not ashamed to admit it, because that's what happened"... you get the idea.
I have listened to several Zombie thrillers through Audible and most are okay to good. This series though knocked it out of the park! Mark Tufo does a great job at mixing guts, fun, and sarcasm all in one while on a wild ride. The tone, speed, and accent of the narrator could also have not been more perfect. Sean Runnette does and A+ job. I liked this series so much I am reading the print version of #6 because I cannot wait to read it, but I will probably get the audio as well....it is THAT GOOD. I will be sure you check out the other Mark Tufo books as well. Great job all and keep up the great work!
The tone and sarcasm! Perfect fit.
Keep them coming from this author and narrator, please!
Mark Tufo's performance was absolutely perfect for this story: his delivery made me laugh out loud too many times to count. And the story was hilarious: one scene was so gross I literally gagged while still laughing and singing the lala song (so I didn't have to listen!), and another scene went somewhere you never want to be in a zombie story. I loved it all and can't wait to get to the next one!
I've always been a big fan of Zombies and everything related to them, this book however, is a whole different thing, it puts you in a real life drama with a real family trying to survive the apocalypse, I laughed, I cried, and I just couldn't stop listening..
My name is Isabel, I have been in love with audio books since 2008 when I had to stop reading books due to several brain surgeries.
terrible book! I was very disappointed, I tried to like this book, but I just couldn't even finish the first chapter.
Not likely, the story made no sense and plot holes large enough to drive a truck through.
No I love zombies!
Yes, I thought the narrator was great, but the story was damn near horrible.
The zombies looking over the wall. Zombies that can figure out how to break through drywall but not crawl over a wall they can look over.
Really it boils down to plot holes, and a story that went nowhere. So many unanswered questions. I really hate when a book delivers a mysterious (whatever) then explains nothing. The Narration was done well, and he delivered the material well. Just that the material he had was not good at all.
