"Drama and comedy in abundance"
Narrated brilliantly ... This has definitely hooked me for the next instalment!!! The characters linked really well ... It's like Jack Reacher meets zombies.
5 stars all the way.
"Amazing witty addictive"
Loved this audio book.
Very detailed and good writing, fun themes keep it light hearted with all the doom and gloom. Descriptive and humoured. I am hooked.
The entire season of this adventure is fantastic. this is by far the best written and read zombie story.
n.b. All the Michael talbot stories are fantastic
"yeah it was alright"
worth a listen but i dont feel it was worth the £20+ i paid for it
this has been my first audio book and I loved it!
the narrators voice was a little too soft and soothing as I fell asleep more than once. lol
ready for the next one.
"A great Zombie book with a sarcastic sense a humer"
I love zombie books & films and this zombie book is 1 of my favourites. It is a little bit like Shawn of the Dead, or maybe like Family Guy with zombies.
It's a sarcastic American man trying to look after his family from zombies.
It's funny & has zombies!!!!!
What's not to like.
He reads it well & really draws you in.
Yes if it was short I would have.
Very good book & I download the 2nd book straight after.
If you have a sense of humour (sarcastic & a bit dark) & you like zombies then get this book.
900 miles is also a good zombie book.
"Stumbled on to a real gem of a book!"
The most horrific ending of the world but a group you can invest your time into and laugh and laugh with through good and bad
This is a real new style of zombie book writing and it WORKS
Mike Talbot of course!
Seriously never listened to zombie fallout then get this book now it is brilliant!
"Cartoonish, gratuitous and unrealistic"
Any concern for scientific accuracy. The idea behind how the zombie outbreak starts is laughably bad. The main protagonist is impossible to sympathize with, in particularly found his description of an encountered obese character to be particularly unpleasant. The lack of well written characters doesn't stop there however. His two sons are trigger happy and moronic respectively, and the rest of the cast doesn't get any better. With the militaristic way it's written, it feels like it's trying to be a Chris Ryan book, and fails miserably.
Discarded the cast, re-written the storyline, spent more than a few minutes coming up with the scientific basis of the story and dropped all of the needless references to modern era brands. I personally got bored of comments like "With their Xbox 360's" scattered amongst the narrative
Steady, mature, disconnected
Massive disappointment, and occasionally guffaws of disbelief
"Classic horror with modern wit."
Yes I would recommend this audiobook. Told in a fascinating and thought-provoking manner. Actually gives you something to think about.....granted it's a zombie apocalypse, but the way it's told and the bond you build with the characters, it's nail biting stuff.
The narrator has a voice that you just can't help but enjoy. One of the best spoke audiobooks I've listened to.
The characters. Mike Talbot and his principles bulldoze through this nightmare. The sarcasm, intelligence and wit that is brought into this story during what can only be described as hell, is just memorable. Keeps you glued every second.
When Mike Talbot put a bullet into the head of a civilian (psycho) who kept a zombie in his basement to use in a most deviant way. Considering the world had changed, everyone's beliefs and principles had changed and survival was the primary goal, Mike still stood by his principles and acknowledged this situation was very wrong. The moment were the sick psycho hinted or suggested about mike's female members was the moment you knew his fate was sealed. A very satisfying moment indeed.
Bear the Rottweiler. Don't think I could listen to that part again. I have an English Bull Terrier. I love her to bits and if I had to look at her the way Mike Talbot had to look at Bear knowing what was about to happen......
will be buying all the Zombie Fallout series.
"Thoroughly Enjoyable Listen Great Narrating"
Really enjoyed this book. The narrating was great and I loved the characters in it. Written with a very dry sense of humour that I enjoyed. I will be listening to the others in the series.
