Terrible writing and hobbled together plot. The narrator did you the best he could under the circumstances and there were some funny moments but that's all.
a different spin on the zombie apocalypse subject. I was hooked inmediately and stayed deeply in grossed in the story. can't wait to hear the next book.
The book is ok, I thought is had alittle too much comedy. I wasn't to thrilled about the way the story was told through the eye's of Mike. I believe anyone could have wrote something like this it had no moments of suspense it was plain I don't know if these books get better but this author has nothing on how the walking dead novels were brought to life! Those books were great reads this was more a a sarcastic comedy about zombies and zombies who actually have power to think and organize and there is a paranormal side to the book , C+ AT BEST. 13 bucks it cost I think 7.99 is better....
This is a poorly written book led by a red neck protagonist that exhibits little common sense or internal fortitude. The book consists mostly of graphic descriptions of blood, gore and mostly smells. The author is fixated on body fluids coming out of various orifices. The most annoying habits of the author consist of ending sentences with propositions and apparently writing a story, then going through a thesaurus and replacing every adjective with the most obtuse substitute in said thesaurus. The result is completely ridiculous text and a completely unlistenable story. The author exhibits little to no ear for dialog and little appreciation of the zombie genre. I'm shocked this story has received multiple 5 star reviews.
The least helpful reviewer on audible.
I have just recently listend to the Arisen omnibus, and that is some of the best zombie books I've ever came across. Unfortunitly, those books greatly influence my judgment of this one. I know it's unfair. This is a completely different kind of book, but what can I do?
Zombie Fallout is, for me anyway, a mixed bag. On the one hand I enjoyed the hell out of it. There's some fairly decent writing here and the characters are interesting. On the other hand a lot of the jokes fall flat. I get what Mr. Tufo is trying to do, but the parts that were more serious were my favorite parts. The parts that were supposed to be witty and humorous felt too forced. This may be the reader's fault, but I don't think so. Sean Runnett does a great job.
Something else I didn't get (SPOILER ALERT) was the mind controlled zombie make out scene. What was that all about? I think Mr. Tufo is setting up for a plot development at some later date, but the whole scene was strange and out of place and it also felt forced.
I think my favorite part was the last 10 minutes when the "Canada story" is told. This may be the one spot in the whole book where the humor was actually humorous.
...but what do I know?
You'd have to have a terrible sense of humor and dislike dogs, not to thoroughly enjoy this book. I've listened to both lycan fallout 1 & 2 before starting the zombie fallout series, and I still laugh just as hard. Mike Talbot is the reason I can't get enough of Mark Tufos work. Do yourself a favor, and follow the adventures of Mike Talbot. You won't regret it!
Great narration and story. If you enjoy dark humor, then this story about a modern family in the apocalypse is great add to your collection.
I am a writer who loves reading.
This story was pretty fun, but there are some very, very, very weird bits. Parts where there appears to be something supernatural going on and the main character is somehow blessed. They didn't jive with the rest of the storyline, which was a storyline I enjoyed. There were also a couple of spots of wish fulfillment. But, overall, it was a fun story.
