Just love Zombie books. Favorites so far by Mark Tufo.
Storyline and the characters were very beleivable. You felt a conection with them. I will listen to this book again in the future and probably many, many, more times.
Mike Talbot--if he was a real person I would love to be his friend. He is hillarious, fun, and a very serious, caring character.
Liza--super scarey, very vindictive
This whole series is a MUST LISTEN/READ. I went through the whole series in less than a week. I WANT MORE....PLEASE HURRY MARK TUFO!!!!
I really enjoyed the first book in this series. This one was good but it dragged a little. The first was power and action packed with many funny moments. This one did have its humorous moments but a bit too much unnecessary dialog. I hope the next is better than this one.
I've replaced my HD TV with the Audible app.
Many of the characters in the series really start to come into their own in this book. The banter and interaction among family, friends, and foes will pull you into the story and keep you laughing at all of the one liners. All this while telling a great Zombie story with a added twist. Sean Runnette continues his outstanding narration as he does a superb job bringing the pages to life and as a listener you get the feeling of being a part of the ever growing Talbot family. If you are looking for a sequel that outshines the original book this one is for you. So “move over a scosh” and get ready for the adventure to continue with Michael Talbot.

We'll leave the light on, hotel people, and the main charecters psychology while there.
Damn you Tufo, almost made me violate the Man Code, but as for a laugh, my sick twisted mind found every other part of this book hilarious.
Thanks Tufo, and to my friend Dean thank you for showing me this author.
Many times an author will establish the story and then really take off in the second novel in a series. I felt that was hardly the case in this series. I was very much interested in reading all the Zombie Fallout series after the first book but have been reticent to going on after reading this book. Let me explain. The first novel balances the action with the character development seamlessly. This book, feels like it has a hard time switching between the two. And when we get to the character development, it feels like the Michael Talbot is becoming much more depressed and sullen. He doesn't have the spark he has in the first book, and Tufo's sparkling witticisms are fewer and farther between as well.
I kept saying to myself, 'come on Talbot, quit just being forced into situation after situation and be pro active or at least try a little harder.' It really did feel like he was partially giving up in places, and that is something that is acceptable on occasion in a main character. However, Tufo doesn't give sufficient reason or driving action to make his floppiness feel justified or palatable.
I may go on to book three, but it will be a little longer than originally expected after this let down.

Things really start to unfold. These are not your George Romero type of zombies. Sean Runnette is a perefect narrator for the main character Mike Talbot.
I liked that the story started to get deeper. There is more to the zomie apocalypse than there seems. I love all of the back story of the characters relationships.
I haven't heard him before but I would give anything a peek with his name attatched.
Again, Sean Runnette is the perfect choice as talent for this novel.
Long live the walking dead of Zombie Fallout and Michael Talbot.
I'm not one to even consider reading this type of book (my personality doesn't fit this type of read), but I decided to step outside my typical "zone" and am SO GLAD that I did! Sean Runnette does a SUPERB job narrating and I hope he continues to do so through book 6! Never a dull moment...Loaded with laughs, suspense, anxiety... I would DEFINITELY recommend this author and this series to everyone! (Hope Audible will carry all of this authors books soon!)
Mark Tuffo advances the misadventures of the Talbot family in the bleakest of worlds, on the run and held together by pure determination. A significant plot-twist with a well-considered paranormal component propels these good people across the heartland of the United States with slow and fast zombies right at their heels. The chase is on with all the gore, the guns and a rag-tag collection of survivors trying to make it to the next day. And once again, it's Mike Talbot who combines the elements of suburban middle-class dad who's greatest concern before the zombies was taking out the trash to reverting to his extraordinary skills as a trained Marine war veteran. Again, great character development for all passengers on this ride. Good people in the darkest sitcom you can ever imagine. It's still very scary, the horror is as real as it gets and Mike Talbot's cynical humor is pure brilliance. Sean Runnette is Mike Talbot and you don't get much better than that in a reader. Stay with the series, it will not let you down.
The series is so good it is causing me problems. I listen to audio books on my way to and from work, but now I don't want to get out of the car (sometimes I sit in my driveway for 15 or 20 min when I come home)! I find myself listening at lunch (and sometimes past lunch) ... which all adds up to going thru the books too fast. I don't have the patience to wait for my new credits, so I've begun purchasing the books outright.
