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
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!
Still an interesting enough story but my goodness, just how many prologues does one book need?
I picked up this series only because of the massive number of favorable reviews. I generally am not interested in the zombie genre. This series is an exception. The main protagonist is overly moralistic at times but he is a fun character. The narrator does an excellent job. I didn't expect to pick up book 2, but I am now anxiously waiting for my credits so I can get book 3. I have several other books to read or listen to until then, but they are not what I want after just finishing this book. Kinda like popcorn
Yes, it's funny and gross.
Spoiler - Aunt Marta says Tommy is going with her to Florida with Uncle Alex, Paul, Erin, April yet when goodbyes are done Tommy is with Mike's group. It feels like an entire pivotal scene was left out. Alex is crying and hugging Mike but no mention about Marta and Tommy's goodbye or what was said that explains why Tommy stayed with strangers VS family. Considering Tommy was the reason for Marta coming out of her catatonic state after being shunned by her family for marrying a convict and then her kids to zombies, it doesn't make sense. When Marta says Tommy is going with her, Mike even says that we know who will win that argument. I'm halfway through the book so I can only hope this distracting plot tangent doesn't remain foremost in my brain or is satisfactorly explained. Love the sarcasm.
Not read print version
I really enjoyed several parts including the larger part B.T. has in the story, and threads from the first book that Tufo brings into the second. I always love Tommy and the moments he spends with Mike.
When I started the last book I thought Sean Runnette was just ok as the narrator. By the end of the second book I couldn't imagine anyone else or anyone more perfect. The way he dryly delivers all of the sarcastic inner-monologue is perfect. I think he's great.
This really wasn't a book I wanted to read in one sitting. Unlike the first book it took me a while to get into the second book. This book is depressing because of the splitting of the group.
I think Mark Tufo is one of the most clever writers I've ever read. I love the character development, the interplay, and how it feels like Tufo has a vision of where the story is going.
Audible is the best thing since AM radio. Being an Outside sales rep, listening to a great novel really eats away at the hours on the road.
Some of the finest sarcasm in modern zombie fiction about a guy from Boston. ;) Great Story
