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!!
Yes, I think people that aren't into zombie's would enjoy all the characters. My kids are now listening and are now hooked on the books.
I Loved them all.
Michael Talbot, but Sean Runnett preformed them all very well.
Mark Tufo is the best I couldn't stop listening.Great book and the whole series was GREAT. Can't wait for book 7
I don't know I don't read I like the audio books
Mike taking the road by my house to save his son at Walmart
Sean is just the right guy for the job. He reads Marks writing very well.
Yeah the creepy doll on the back dock of the wal mart shipping and receiving. Thanks mark nightmares for sure.
You will never be disappointed by Mark Tufo. I've meet this man and he's great.
I thought it was a great listen. It had me laughing out loud very often from just the "normalcy" of the character and his thought process on things. I will say though that the ending did not make me crave the next book, however I still may listen to it because of how funny this first book was.
I really enjoyed Mike's sarcasm and wittiness. Made me laugh out load, but was still was a great story line. Had a few problems with the actual 'preparedness' for the battle for survival. Seemed a little amateurish considering Mike's military background. But overall, loved the book and have already purchased #2 Kindle Edition and Audible Edition. I look forward to the next installment. Wish that this was available in an omnibus series (along with many other series).
Wittiness, sarcasm, and overall humor while in a survival situation.
I like his narration - sounds a lot like Billy Crystal. However, during serious situations, I had a hard time believing the narration voice to the situation. Seemed more for the humor than for the storyline. He certainly doesn't sound ex-military!
Laugh mostly, but had some very emotional portions. Made me cry but at the same time made me laugh out loud.
I hope that the 'vampire' addition to the storyline doesn't end up being just plain stupid!
