I can't believe I stumbled upon this series. I honestly can't get enough of this story. I love to read but with 3 kids and busy life I get literally zero time. Audible allows me to listen to this in the car, shopping, cleaning, literally every time I happen to be alone I'm listening. And this series is that dam good that I think about the current situations in the story when I'm not able to listen. The whitty humor that this author uses is amazing. I actually find myself laughing out loud while I'm grocery shopping. Start this series if you haven't already!!! Oh and the narrator is probably the best you could want to depict the main character.
I have taught my two boys at home for the last 8 years. A love of literature of all kinds led me to Audible.
This second book is excellent. While the title indicates that this series has gore and blood and zombies the majority of the writing is not about that. Written in journal format from in the first person , this ongoing story is about Mike Talbot ' s past and present. I read many first person narratives but not lot of those are written about an adult male's perspective who is married with 3 kids. What makes this story worth reading is Mike Talbot ' s sense of humor, his views on relationships, his sense of duty towards those he loves, and his dedication to brotherhood and friendship. Tufo seamlessly weaves a story full of flashbacks, laced with the challenging decisions Talbot must make to keep his band of survivors safe, and marked by just enough of the supernatural to keep the story interesting on that front. The characters are real and their choices compelling. Looking forward to the continuation of the story. (less)
The narrator does an outstanding job once again. He really brings life to the characters.
Definitely i already listened 3 times already.
Watching eliza evolve and get even more evil
He is full of emotion and life, he brings all of the characters alive
No i enjoy over a couple of days
I am already on my way to get book 3. I don't know which I enjoy more. The story is a pretty great turn on a zombie apocalypse, but the narrator sells it through.
I find myself missing the voice and really looking forward to the next chapter.
I read book 1 and am listening to book 2. The performance quality is terrific I think. I sit and stare at the wall for hours as I listen and see with my minds eye. I laugh out loud and then get a terminal pucker. I found myself yelling things like ..."NO!!"..."CRAP!!"...and other words not suitable to share with you here. I just bought book 3.Reading the first book was a feast for my minds eye. Did most of the reading on the can which caused some paralysis that I thought was permanent for an hour or more. There are better places to read. I wept when we lost Bear. I'm a dog owner and lover. If we had to lose him I would have preferred that we had a vivid description of his devastation of the first wave of the zombies before he went down. But I cannot judge the author. I admire his work too much. My compliments to Mark Tufo. I hated you briefly when we lost Jeb. But I was supposed to feel something like that wasn't I. My name tags all read "I FOUND YOU" I'm waiting for someone to recognize what that is from. I had always hated zombie stories until I read a Peter Meredeth series..."The Undead World". Great stuff. Now Marks work. I'm starting to live his story when I'm not reading it. Like life isn't twisted enough. Thanks for the very creative and entertaining works. You are a genius.
APOCHOLIPSE, THE UNDEAD WORLD by Peter Meredith Books 1 thru 6. For the same reasons I like Marks work
Sean's work is excellent. With just subtle changes in his voice he gives us many characters without making them silly or trite. He gives us insights bthat I missed when I read book one or maybe he just gave me different insights. Whatever. I totally enjoy his efforts. I will look for his name in other audio books.
Like I said...When we lost Bear and when we lost Jeb. Even though they're demise was underplayed, I was moved.
If you like zombie stories and adventure. Mark Tufo is your author to look for. The guy has the gift.

The writer is very good with describing visuals and scents. Nauseatingly good. I also enjoyed the main character's sense of humor and sarcasm.
9 year olds who enjoy fart humor every 10 minutes
Relentless, unfunny sarcastic "humor" About 30 fart jokes and I'm only an hour in.
Unbelievably ridiculous, relentless sarcasm in the face of death in an apocalyptic world. I could not believe how many fart jokes. And I'm only an hour in. I finish everything no matter how bad but I don't know about this one. Book 1 was annoying but descent but I was thinking it had to get better and it got worse. If one second after and the stand are at the top of this genre, this book is absolutely at the bottom. If you've read every apocalyptic book made, and are desperate for just one more, DONT BOTHER WITH THIS AUDIO BOOK!!!!!!!
