This was my first zombie story ever and I L.O.V.E. it! The narrator was awesome and I'm looking forward to listening to all the other books. I heard some zombie stories were complex, but not this one. The author did an awesome job incorporating real life and reality into this story and at times I felt like I was there. This story had me on the edge of my seat the entire time!
Most definitely recommend this! As a matter of fact I have! The characters are rich, the writing is real, the story is great....can't say enough good about this book and all the Michael Talbot stories.
Michael....I guess, it's hard to say. They are all so good.
Sean Runnette's voice has made me fall in love with Michael Talbot. He is the best I've heard.
Haven't a clue.....but this would be a fantastic film series.....I would definitely pay to see this.
What can I say. I love the Talbots. I love BT, Tracy, the kids, Alex, all of the characters, even Mrs. Denoe. I've already listened to all 4 twice and preaparing to start over and listen again while I wait for # 5 to be published.
I'd be the last to praise this book as I often found myself cringing at the writing, but I was entertained to some degree.
It is interesting to hear a zombie story for the point of view of someone who might be suited to deal with it (mike's guns and weapons training) rather than the usually random dude. The characters were mostly unbearable.
Different narrator, was not a fan of the narration.
It was pretty entertaining if you overlook the obvious problems.
Mike was not funny, not in the slightest. No one was legitimately entertaining. Sarcasm seems to be the only attempt at humor which was kind of awful. The wife is irritating, irrational and endlessly nagging.
Meets zombies.... worth your time and credit. Main character in the book is a joy to follow... very funny. . The story has a bit of a supernatural twist that makes it interesting.
The narrator did a good job he was very well suited to the main character.
I will get the next book.
Yes, it was funny, self-depricating and fairly well paced. If the action gets too intense there's guaranteed humor coming.
Michael. He's the story teller, of course! The female characters are bloody useless and annoying.
I've listened to this twice and the second time around I was struck by how ... dumb the female characters are. They are useless. The dead are walking; the regular rules of society no longer apply but these women are more concerned with gossip, cigarettes and w(h)ine. And being 100% useless with guns. By the time the book ended after the 2nd listen, I would have been happy to see all of the female characters gone.
I'll be the first to admit that I have a quirky sense of humor and this book is just that. Listen to the audio sample. If you don't find it funny then you will not enjoy this book or the series. If you do find it humorous then you will love the book and the series. I listened to the 8 published books in 2 weeks. Now I have to wait for the next book which makes me sad.
None the less if you are a fan of this type of humor you'll be in for a great ride. Download it and hold on for a great listen.
The main character Michael Talbot is a wonderfully snarky and flawed man that you will grow to love.
Anyone who loves a good zombie story this is it. This profoundly entertaining and witty. Absolutely love the characters and the narrator. Can't wait to move on to the rest of the series
the quality of story was there,there's parts that had me on the edge of my seat ,other parts that gave me laugher and even had me yelling at it. I found i could lose my self in this audio book. I will be looking forward to listening to the rest of the series and if it's anything like this one I'm sure I'll have a hard time putting it down.
I will be definitely buying more books by this author and by the narrator .
