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.
Mark Tufo has a rare gift. He is able to bring characters to life and keeps the story flowing. His characters are the type that you can relate to immediately. The journal format of this series is absolutely perfect from start to finish.
Little Turtle, enough said.
I cannot think of anyone who would be able to voice Michael Talbot better than Sean Runnette. He does a great job with all of the characters. His ability to express each character's emotions, from humor to terror, is what makes this series even better.
There are few things better than a good story well told!
I like humor. I like apocalypse fiction. I like zombie fiction. I can even like a book that combines all three in the right proportion. But somehow the recipe was off for me in this book. Maybe it was the timing of the wise cracks or the amount of jokiness. I tried but I couldn't get through this.
This book is fine other than it does not end. You have to buy all the books in the series, and they are only around 10 hours each. That costs too much compared to several other long books. For example, under the dome was a good book and it was around 60 hours. They didn't break it up into 6 books to make you buy more. It is a bit of a scam.
book was fine --- packaging is the problem
Never I could not stomach the first book, it is hate mongering under the guise of supposedly being funny. I want my money back!
Crass attempt at being witty. Comedians can stand on a stage and set a scene and get away with some politically incorrect humor but Tufo takes ongoing out of the blue shots at women and gays and thinks that is okay.
I am sure Tufo is crying all the way to the bank over negative reviews and has a large following with the series so it keeps going but he reinforces stereotyping that really perpetuates hate and why is it even necessary?
awesome new twist
the twisted humor in the heart thumping worst times
BT and Micheal moments
had to get all the books
100% LOVED IT!!!
Michael Talbot, was there another?!?!?!?
The cold scene where the evil Queen zombie (At least that is my take n her at this point) is out in the field and draws Michael to her in what can only be described as some sort of trance, and tells him to go to the mountains. He responds with... Well you'll just have to read.
I think so, I love this book and the main character, he really hits home with me as he reminds me of my uncle Bob. We are both from Boston, so is Michael. I have to say, I laughed a few times heavily.
Yes, down to earth writing. He makes it so realistic.
His voices of every character make you feel like these are people you know.
Read/Listen to all 6 books, this is great stuff.
