I love it.
The fact he could do this book without laughing
Talburt saves the world.
Blood, gore, violence and true human feeling are just part of the wonderful package that is Zombie Fallout. I am a true fan of this genre and appreciate talent when i see it, as it is rare to find these days. Mark Tufo does an admirable job writing this novel and it is read with grace and professionalism by Sean Runnette. Very good job for both books, I just downloaded book two!
I listen to books on my long commute.
I love end-of-the-world stories, add zombies and you have a great combo. You place yourself in the characters shoes and wonder what you would do in that situation. I didn't see eye-to-eye with all of the main character's thoughts but there were enough to be enjoyable.
I have not read any comparibl books but I love zombie movies like Zombieland, 28 days, and Shaun of the Dead. I also love end of the world genres like Legend and Dawn of the Dead. All give that, "what would I do?" feeling.
Tommy. His voice gave an instant picture of his character. Funny too.
I laughed often at Michael Talbot's thoughts
Dog farting is not that humorous
I have been a subscriber to Audible for years, and it is rare to find a novel this entertaining. I have to say that it has been one of my favorite reads in quite some time. The humor (yes you can actually have some humor in zombie fiction) had me laughing often. I am going to be following Mr. Tufo's work after my introduction through this novel.
Love Fantasy, Horror, And Post Apocalyptic books.
Big fan of zombie stories and this is one of the good ones. Lots of twists and turns and good humor.
I have always loved having people tell me a story. It helps me feel connected to them as a fellow human and it forces me to acknowledge that others may have valid viewpoints that I may not have considered. This story had me laughing out loud and utterly heartbroken, often at the same time. Sean Runnette's interpretation of the story sometimes made me forget he is only one person and not actually a gaggle of people I would avoid if I could.
Personnally, I hate to compare books to each other. Each author is an individual with a unique "voice", and I feel it is unfair to compare them to any other author.
He took the reading seriously. At no point did I believe that he was reading the story just to go home with the paycheck in hand. It felt like he was conscious that there was someone eagerly listening to his every word, drifting in a world built with his voice. He never let me fall back into reality by hearing his boredom with his job.
It made me think,laugh, cry, and consider if it would make more sense to invest in solar panels or a back-up generator. They both have their pluses and minuses.
Get this book. It is a guide to a world that does not exist, but could... and wouldn't you feel stupid if you didn't know what to do if you ran into Redneck #1?
The story is engaging, well told, and keeps you guessing what will happen next.
The unexpected humor even in crisis situations.
This is the first book of his I've listened to but it isn't the last.
Yes but it wasn't possible.
The narrator, Sean Runnette, took a really good story to the next level. His voices and ability to convey the humor of this book was spectacular. He continues to do an excellent job throughout the series so far. This book follows Mike Talbot as he tries to keep his family safe during the Zombie Apocalypse. Mark Tufo covers the big issues we all think about (don't we?) when contemplating such a disaster, but also hones in the minute details of Mike's experience, including his own slightly off sense of humor which effect how he reacts to one horrible event after another. I found the book incredibly engaging and often very funny. I highly recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a good survivalist novel.
Oh my goodness this has to be the best book I've listened to this year and I've listened to some great books! It has the right balance of horror and humor. The storyline is such that I've literally stayed in the garage 'cleaning' and in the yard
'mowing' all day just to listen to the book.
The story is told from a first person perspective and reminds me very much of the dry humor of Nelson DeMille's John Corey character (Lion's Game, Plum Island, etc.,.).
If you are looking for a fun zombie book I highly recommend it!
I love the snarky humor. My boyfriend and I started listening to this on our way back from vacation. I wanted to keep driving so we could finish the book! Sean Runnette does an excellent job as narrator.
The book is not for the weak-stomached. There are times when I get nauseous listening to some of the descriptions, but it is a zombie book!
I am now on book 5...this is quite the addiction I have and I love the BT and Mrs. Deneaux characters!
