So I found this book by accident. Never heard of series or author. When Audible has a special I usually listen to some of the editor's picks. In 30 seconds, I was in love with both Mark and Sean. The dynamic duo has my captive attention!
I happened upon this series randomly, or maybe it was meant to be. I am not a huge fan of gore or horror so was almost scared away. I couldn't be more happy that I gave it a chance. The main character, has such a wonderful sense of humour and is such a sarcastic d*ck sometimes, he is impossible not to love! The other characters all make the story that much more vivid! Absolutely hooked me from the start, I promise you will not be disappointed!
I love reading a book and listening to a book.
I would of liked this book slightly better if it weren't for the unnecessary homophobia that crops of a few times. The main character's inner voice left me annoyed as well.

thought I'd find a new series - only to be disappointed. The humor is SO FORCED in this series - it just falls flat, hour after hour, of forced jokes falling flat (during a disaster no less) - can't muster the energy or take the risk to continue on this series - despite some people really seeming to love it.
Absolutely. Such a great story from an amazing point of view Mike is funny and sarcastic, and a hero when he needs to be.
Sean Runnette is Mike Talbot.
I laughed so much, and that was suprising, but i cried oh lord when i thought Justin was a gonner.
Even if you are not the normal "Zombie" fan you should absolutley check this book out you will be hooked, i feel in love with the Talbot family instantly!
huh? what? ahhh!
This is a weird little series. It took me halfway through the first book to get into the groove of the inappropriate humor, what is usually internal dialogue being external, and seemingly light-hearted approach to the zombie genre. Once I got it into my head that this felt like a character with some time and distance from the events using the "laugh or lose your mind and cry" approach it all made sense to me. I would encourage readers to hang in there, get through the first book, and see if it doesn't grow on you. If I hadn't paid 20 bucks for the audio book I would have stopped a chapter in. I'm soooo glad I didn't because now I'm on book 6 and I love this series. This isn't a humorous take on zombies. It is a character (like cops, military, er nurses etc) using sarcasm and black humor to get through tragedy and horror.
Other reviewers have said his sense of humor was a negative but I found it gave the story a lot of life. I really had a hard time with the reader though, it took a long time for me to get used to his voice and his performance did pickup (or maybe I just got used to it) as the story went on. I would not miss this book though because of the reader, it's definitely worth the credit. I enjoyed it at least as much as Day By Day Armageddon.
that the author wrote the main character more like a real person with side mental conversations and jokes. Very funny and like me in real life (minus the whole zombie thing)
laughing during a zombie book
naw its just a better than normal zombie book
I really like this one
That's a tough question. It is definitely one of the best ZOMBIE books I've ever read. The writing style flows quickly and is light and enjoyable. The narration is excellent and overall, the story is great. I finished it without the urgent need to jump and immediately listen to the next book in the series so that could be an indication of the books appeal overall. I would certainly recommend it and I will listen to it again at some point.
There is a lot of laughing in this book. The main character is witty, sarcastic, and street smart. The author blends the desperation of the apocalypse and the main characters sarcastic jackass personality into a really enjoyable story that all book lovers should enjoy.
Yes. After six books of the series plus the Lycan novel with Mike Talbot, I have grown invested in the characters. I love the Talbots and especially Henry.
I've never read a Zombie series. Tufo's was my 1st. I was pleasantly surprised.
Excellent narration with perfect translation of the characters. Flawless . He molded the characters for me.
I cried when a very special character was bit by a zombie. I cried when a certain character was sure to die. I laugh all the time.
Great story Mark. Kudos. It'll go down in my top 10 book series' of all time for me....and I'm a girl who loves mainly fantasy romance ...so that's big!!
