funny sarcastic awesome
Mike's inner commentary throughout the book is hilarious!
very very good. did all the characters really well.
Dramatic, humorous, zombies
The introduction of Tommy and all that he can do
Made me laugh
I'm already listening to part 2 "a plague upon your family, and it is great too.
I thought Tufo did a masterful job in this book of balancing humor and horror. His main character Michael Talbot has many great witticisms that are hilarious and engaging. The story also moves you along and makes you want to keep reading. I didn't want to stop when I had to. That's always a good sign in a book. All of the characters are well thought out and are integral in their own way to the story. There are also a few fun twists to the zombie mythos. Great book to start a series with!
I enjoy a good zombie book just a much as the next person, but this was an abject excuse for a zombie book. It was full of inconsistencies followed by gaping holes in the storyline. Had I known that characters were going to be created for the sake of filling a void with no intent of developing them, I would not have bothered to listen until the end. I kept hoping that the woman zombie character would come into play, but it seems the author just forgot all about her. The humor was sophomoric and difficult to ignore. I wish I could comment about the ending, but I still can't figure out how it ended. I suppose I will have to re-listen to the end, but I can't bare to put myself through the ordeal.
I'm not sure.
I can't say I have a favorite scene. I kept hoping it would get better.
This one should be free.
Humorous, Captivating, Realistic
None, It really isnt comparable to any other book I have listened to.
Mike Talbot, reminds me of my husband.
I really dont like zombie plot lines, I usually find them unbelievable, and my answer to the whole plaque would probably be to shoot myself. My husband started listening to this book and I overheard some of the humorous storyline between the husband and wife in the middle of the zombie plaque, humor? It caught my attention, and I couldnt stop listening, til I had finished the whole series! The narrator does a great job, he has a nice voice and is easy to listen to. I am just getting ready to order the Indian Hill book, cant wait to get started!
My thanks to the author, Mark Tufo, hope we can look forward to years of reading your work.

Exciting, Personable, Funny
while on a long road trip, My wife (who didn't want anything to do with a "Zombie" book) finally looked over at me about the third chapter into the book, and asked if the author knew me or something... We were hooked.
Mark Tufo and Sean Runnette are a perfect match! I enjoy how every time I start to ponder a plot in the story, I am answered by the author like we were having a conversation.
Five stars should be reserved for the best of the best. This book is one such book. Characters are all interesting and diverse. Story keeps moving and gives plenty of detail. The humor is so much greater than I could ever expect from a zombie series. I was sold from the five minute sample and have not regretted the purchase once.

I haven't enjoyed a zombie book so much since reading "Dust" by Joan Francis Turner. Fantastic story, very well written. The problem I have with many audio books is that I have a hard time adjusting to the narrators voice. Some are better than others but it always just sounds like somebody is reading a script. The narrator for Zombie Fallout, Sean Runnette, does not sound like he is reading a script...he is actually telling me a story, like he is talking to me and not just reading. Best narrative I have ever heard! And funny...omg... so much humor!
Just because you're writing about the end of life on earth doesn't mean you can't have some fun with it! Mark Tufo mixes the standard apocalypse survival action/adventure story with a bit of the supernatural. Then he adds just the right touch of wit, sarcasm, and morbid humor. All of this expertly delivered by Sean Runnette. With his telling you feel the suspense and heartache, while every punchline is delivered with perfect timing. Overall a great listen and the rest of the series is shaping up in perfect harmony with the first book.
