I enjoy reading fantasy, science fiction, and horror the most. To improve, I read about language, psychology, spirituality, and art. I read about computer science and business for professional reasons.
You may wonder why I'd give a book with such a horrific name five stars. Such a nightmarish idea in the second person is sure to rile anyone up. But I don't judge books by their cover, and this was was an incredible horror book.
The main character and his family continue to develop in the midst of a horrific setting, with a plot line based on family group survival. The plague creates mindless herds of violent masses seeking to eat the flesh of the family. Society appears to have lost the battle, and these large groups of subhumans are able to roam the country in groups attacking who they please.
I'm a Registered Nurse. I've been an avid reader all my life. I love Audible books. I'm able to enjoy books and still keep busy!
I am listening to ALL the stories
I'm Liking all the characters, especially his kick ass wife!
Sean Runnette is excellent
I am excited and anxious about all the situations, it's a roller coaster
Digging all the characters!!
This is a weird little series. It took me halfway through the first book to get into the groove of the inappropriate humor, what is usually internal dialogue being external, and seemingly light-hearted approach to the zombie genre. Once I got it into my head that this felt like a character with some time and distance from the events using the "laugh or lose your mind and cry" approach it all made sense to me. I would encourage readers to hang in there, get through the first book, and see if it doesn't grow on you. If I hadn't paid 20 bucks for the audio book I would have stopped a chapter in. I'm soooo glad I didn't because now I'm on book 6 and I love this series. This isn't a humorous take on zombies. It is a character (like cops, military, er nurses etc) using sarcasm and black humor to get through tragedy and horror.
Say something about yourself!
Love second book as well.
Tufo is doing a great job of making this apocalypse same real. Mike is very realistic. He knows what people are like and what humans will do! I would recommend that you read book one first. This review would make for sense if you have.
I just love Tommy!! So clueless one minute, with his candy then giving very helpful one liners the next. Its not clear to me what he truly is yet but I look forward to finding out. Nor am I clear on why this family it targeted.. Perhaps I should read book one again.
These Zombie's are evolving. That's all I will say. Its a great twist...... Speaking of great twist Zombie's read Diane Roland's My life as a white trash Zombie.... Anyway back to Zombie Fallout. The end of the book is frustrating but that is what sells books. I promptly went to buy book 3.
Zombie fan=Zombie fallout. Enjoy!!!
not only would i recommend,but have purchased as gifts!
i love the dynamic between B.T and mike talbot...classic guys
i absolutely love sean runettes abilities to narrate,he changes tones at right time,subtlety changes voices for diff. characters,flawless.i wish he would narrate all the books i listen to!
i found myself laughing out loud,my wife thinks im crazy
Mainly a sci-fi, and fantasy junkie who also enjoys horror, whodunnits, and books about animals and sports. I'm also an amateur filmmaker.
I really liked the first book, so I eagerly got this one. The author managed to up the ante in terms of combat and conflict, but at the expense of story. The story is real fragmented. For example the story is told by the main character, apparently by way of a diary that he left, but we never do learn anything about the diary. They introduce the "fast zombies", but again this new revelation never really goes anywhere, and seems forgotten by the end. And then there is the "ending" that really isn't. The book just kind of ends without even a satisfying temporary resolution. It's like the author reached his target page or word count and just called it a day.
Witty, entertaining, gross.
I love Tommy and Mike.
McDonald's for one and the highway chase. The internal dialogue throughout this book made me laugh so hard, I love it.
If you like zombies, there is enough of them for you, If you like humor this book is more your style. I wouldn't want to live in this world, but Mark Tufo's vision made it a great ride. I can't wait to get the next book and I am so glad I don't have to wait for it to be released.
I couldn't imagine anyone else narrating this series. Perfect timing every time. Sean Runnette I am a fan now.
Avid Zombie Fiction listener!!! Bring on the living dead.
Great story, Great narration, Great characters, Great series!!!
The whole series is very well written and flows perfectly.
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.
Love a Good Audio, and a Great Flip Flop.
Once I ended book 1 I immediatly started the download of book 2, I did not want to miss even a single day. I found myself listening while getting ready for work, on the drive to work and during my lunch break. I purchased an arm strap for my iphone and on weekends cleaned my entire house in less then 1 1/2 hours (which is a feat) without batting an eyelash! The comedic presentation, description of events makes you feel like you are right there with the Talbots!
The easier questions would be what did I NOT like about this story, one word. Nothing.
I am on book 6 now and they have all ran together (the signal of a wonderfully written story) so I can not exactly remember what happened that singles this book out.
Seriously, they need to make a film of this book and all the others. It would by far do better then World War Z!!
If you are doubting you would like a Zombie story, DONT. Download the first one and you will be hooked!
