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!
After reading the reviews, I was on the fence about this series. But once I started listening, I really enjoyed it. Yes there are references too many zombie games and movies, but it was in good context and fit well with the story.
" I have my mind... & a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge." -T.L.
The reason why I didn't give this book more stars is only because its a zombie book & in the past how many Zombie books are there? Comparable speaking though this is probably the best in regards to concept, characters, & plot... Like I mentioned in the past Tufo took Mike Talbot & puts him in all sorts of different experiences.
Although in the zombie genre this is a great book with a great performance because the humor (this distinguishes it between other books even though it loses some believability & horror) is good but has to be presented dryly & Sean does a great job.
BUT, I would suggest the if u have to suggest between Zombie's or Alien's, go for Tufo's alien books, the 'Indian Hill' books are a trilogy so there is an ending & its entertaining compared to the zombie books which could still be going on... I'm in the process of reading book 6 of the zombie books & I think it should have been a trilogy as well, its a bit long & be warned if u are going to read these, there are a lot of books regarding zombies... I like zombies & killing zombies, but not this much nor thru so many books... If u love zombie books, its worth it, if not than stay away
I saw other reviews that had lambasted the work but I thought I would try it. I tried more than once to listen to this book but the flippant tone just didn't work for me. It felt very false - I just couldn't identify with any of the characters nor could I immerse myself in the situations.
Someone with the sense of humor of a 10-year-old boy, and no idea what proper grammar is.
Hired an editor or 2 or 3.
The material he was reading was the biggest problem.
The scenes weren't the problem. The awful awful writing and horrible sentence construction and misogyny were the problem.
Don't waste a credit on this book.
Great, funny, entertaining
Was looking for something in the Zombie field and came across this book series. Not bad at all and look forward to getting all the books. I like the fact that it has side of humor in parts.
Good zombie genre
Mike Talbott is the best, simply because the story is from his perspective so you get the most insight into his personality. However, Tommy is excellent as well as he also has one of the more detailed personalities.
No, in fact I was ready to quit listening after the first 3-4 chapters. As many of the reviews suggest there are way too many puns, metaphors and attempts at cheap laughs. It really detracts from the story. After Chapter 4 I nearly considered stopping and moving on. However, I am glad I did not. The story does get quite good and the characters become more fleshed out. There is still some campy jokes, but it begins to work rather than detract. I would very much recommend the book, just beware that it is a slow start. The rest of the books of the series only get better as the story unfolds.
