AS i listen to this storyline and how this guy Mike Talbot , His life is a cross between AL Bundy luck from ( Married with Children) and Peter Griffin sense of humor from (Family Guy). there is alot of action and if it could go wrong for Mike in the story, It is predicatble it will!!!
But there is somekind of intervention keeping this guy and his family alive as all falls around them, but with a sick humor, they managle to pull it out and live for one more day! It is funny writtng and dialogue as you listen to this book and more of the series. Alot of the Guy code references are involed with this book, so you women may not catch the man humor of it. But you will enjoy it regardless as the witty writing will explaing the tough punchlines and historical referense.
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!

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.
Yes, the narrator was amazing. He was spot on with the characters and voices.
I can't really say. They were all unique.
The accents, voices, cadence... it was all a wonderful experience.
No, I can't say it was a moving book, but there were points that really made me smile. I enjoyed it.
I have already purchased the next edition. I hope it is just as good.
