The main character in this novel is hilarious. I'm definitely giving credit to the narrator as well, as his inflections and tones just make this an enjoyable experience (when really, it shouldn't be because a lot of this is pretty gross). The characters are great, the story keeps moving. I have read quite a bit of zombie apocalypse fiction, and while this might be the funniest, I can't say it's the best.
To be honest, I couldn't get all of the way through this book. There are cheesy, cliche lines left and right that have you rolling your eyes. The writing isn't that great and I feel like a lot more could have been done to improve this book.
Wow, the reviews are all over the place for this book but I really enjoyed it. It's not perfect but I found the story interesting, the humor was to my taste and it's appropriately gory for a zombie book. I will be buying the next audiobook.
Decided to try out this book/series out after getting back on audible and remembering I was finished with the Patient Zero series and I am hooked! Can't wait to "read" the second one!
All I can say is that I laughed out loud and I can't remember when I did that last. Prepare for a deliciously hilarious version of the Zombie apocalypse.
i was looking for something new and stumbled across this book (i just finished book 6). this story is out of my Paranormal romance genre but i would recommend it to anyone looking for a good story about the zombie apocalypse.
I have taught my two boys at home for the last 8 years. A love of literature of all kinds led me to Audible.
Way out of my usual comfort zone but an adventure packed and entertaining listen. Tufo is a new author for me. I really enjoyed Dystance, Winter's Rising by Tufo which takes place at a time far into the future from the Zombie Fallout books. A careful listen of the Epilogue of Dystance in which Mike Talbot ' s journal is found describing what happened to the world's population and one Aha moment later I realized that the Mike Talbot who wrote the journal ONLY mentioned in the Epilogue of Dystance is the same Talbot who is the main character in Z Fallout. So of course I need to see how Tufo is going to connect these two same but distant and different worlds. This book is more than it appears and less than some I have read. I do love Tufo's humor and real talent for blending the thoughts the main character has about himself and others seamlessly with the action going on at any given time. Talbot is strong, sarcastic, loving. protective, and a fierce thinker. We get to see the world through his eyes and his heart. I like that. There are obvious hints that Tufo is not revealing the full extent of the damage that has spread across the world and he's not telling all about the nature of each character whose part of his mighty band of unique survivors. He gives tantalizing tidbits which is just enough for readers to know this is not just a blood and gore fest at all. The narration is first rate and that makes this book worth a follow up if they keep the same narrator for the next one. I also enjoy books written in first person and that works very well with this novel. I promised myself I would read 3 newly recommended authors this year and stick with their tales. Book 2, A Plague Upon Your Family is already downloaded.
