I have truly enjoyed this book! I have heard a number of zombie books as of late, to be honest I was starting to get bored with them. Story line a bit cliche, narration boring, in a last ditch effort I downloaded this book. I was captured by the humor in the narration, Sean Runnette is great at this, made this a must read, the story line is a bit off the norm as well, made the entire experience great, have already downloaded the 2nd volume.
Meets zombies.... worth your time and credit. Main character in the book is a joy to follow... very funny. . The story has a bit of a supernatural twist that makes it interesting.
The narrator did a good job he was very well suited to the main character.
I will get the next book.
The first thing you should know is that this is a zombie story in the tradition of movies like Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland. That is to say, a zombie comedy (zombedy?).
I am going to make this review easy. I imagine you are not going to buy two zombie comedies this month which means you may be considering this or The Zombies of Lake Woebegotton (also available from Audible). The difference between the titles is easily articulated: Zombie Fallout generates its humor primarily from one-liners, bad smells, slapstick, and bodily functions. The Zombies of Lake Woebegotton's humor is primarily situational, satire, and irony. I think the The Zombies of Lake Woebegotton is the much better of the two books, but you should assess by your own sense of humor.
Taken on its own, Zombie Fallout isn't bad. It is amusing, and I love a good zombie story. I think I'll even buy the sequel. However, if I were looking to buy a zombie-comedy this month, this would be my second choice.
it seems everyone want to add something besides zombies. god, magic, etc. it just ruins it
These books are incredible! Tufo and Runnette are a great team. Yes, the books are about zombies but they are filled with so much more. Its an emotional roller coaster and the side trips Tufo takes are great. So many laughs as well. I've loved every book so far and will continue to buy them.
Some stuff seems to me like I have been there before, maybe it's the genre,don't get me wrong it's only one I enjoy my problem is I have read the book so in my head it was a hell of alot better, the narration didn't sound like the marine I imagined anyway it was good start and I'm off to the next book I have faith that it will just get better. Hope this helps you in your decision to get. Enjoy.
Most definitely recommend this! As a matter of fact I have! The characters are rich, the writing is real, the story is great....can't say enough good about this book and all the Michael Talbot stories.
Michael....I guess, it's hard to say. They are all so good.
Sean Runnette's voice has made me fall in love with Michael Talbot. He is the best I've heard.
Haven't a clue.....but this would be a fantastic film series.....I would definitely pay to see this.
What can I say. I love the Talbots. I love BT, Tracy, the kids, Alex, all of the characters, even Mrs. Denoe. I've already listened to all 4 twice and preaparing to start over and listen again while I wait for # 5 to be published.
I've only just listened to this first in the series, but so far it's the best zombie book I've head on Audible. It has a perfect blend of character development, humor, suspense, and horror. I lost a few hours of sleep listening to this at night. My wife, who knows English but not well enough to concentrate on following the story, couldn't understand why I was cracking up while lying in my bed trying to fall asleep to this novel. In the end, I had to turn it off, because I couldn't stop listening.
My mind often wanders while listening to a story, and I'll sometimes I'll "wake up" and realize I didn't actually hear the last 20 minutes or so. In most cases, I just focus my attention again and keep going. Not with this book. I had to go back and listen to every word.
Get this book. Here's how good it is: I didn't have the credits to buy this and the next book, but the first was so worth the price, I paid for the second rather than wait for my next credit to kick in. I can't wait to hear what happens next.
The narrator is excellent in delivery, but his voice isn't crisp and clear, so if your hearing isn't perfect, it can sometimes take effort to follow every word. Most people shouldn't even notice, though.
