great, great, great!
Destruction of the camp.
He is great! Sounds like Billy Crystal. Makes the story interesting yet humorous! Makes the story enjoyable.
Not sure why. Just can't get enough. Listen on the way to work with Whispersync on the way to work and read Kindle at lunch!
Hope there is a Whispersync version soon for the newer editions soon. Will have to start on a new series for now. Maybe Wool.
let us be thankful for the fools but for them we would not suceeed. M Twain. I am a fan of Zombie books. Im a family man with two great kids
I like the series so far. I like Mike Talbot and i like the other characters too.Action aplenty. Good character development. Good narrator.
My only criticism and its a minor one is some of the flash backs and dream story lines are to long for me.But its only a minor set back to an otherwise great book and series.
Avid Zombie Fiction listener!!! Bring on the living dead.
Yes yes yes yes and again yes!!! Listen to this series you will not be disappointed.
I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
There is less rectal humor in this one, so that is a big plus. And a bit less complaining about women, so that is another plus. The story, however, went on too long. It felt like the story should have ended after the battle at Camp Custer since that was the climax of the story, but then it goes on and on and on with dozens more scenes that had no real purpose (i.e. no goal is reached).
And to top it off, the epilogue goes back into the past where we have to hear about Talbot using drugs (I thought he was a marine?? drug use doesn't really fit that, does it?). The only purpose I can see for this epilogue is so the author can use a short story he wrote about the same characters - because it certainly has nothing to do with these zombie books. Or with character development: we've already seen tons of pages about Mike, so why do we need this unrelated flashback?
I also don't know why we're subjected to an unrelated thread where we start following Paul's journey... it is tacked on at the end, has no point or resolution and seems to be there to add some pages to this story, and, perhaps, because the author needs these characters 'in place' for book 4? No idea. But really, the last 1/5 of the book was just a let-down with more of the same old, same old and no forward moving points.
I already have the next book in the series, but that is the last one of these I'll be reading, regardless of how the author drops the ball at the end of the book as his ploy to get you to keep buying (i.e. you will buy the next book to find out why on earth he tacked on 60 pages of junk at the end of this one).
The narration is the same as the others. I wouldn't recommend reading the books out of order. The is some foul language, no sex, and the violence is mostly non-graphic.

I love Mike Talbot's adventures, from Indian Hill to these books, the dry humor & relatively funny situations but Zombie books are in no short supply & in truth, the only thing that really makes this series a lil'better is the narrator & MT... But its starting to get a bit old, not sure where Tufo is going to take this, I've read up to book 5, & I have not look to jump into book 6 because the series is still just about Zombies & fighting them with a little bit of 'magic' like abilities, but as a reader of Sanderson, Weber, Ambercrombie, etc... the story undertones are not that thrilling or new, even the jokes are not so funny any more, its a lot of sarcasm & some funny situations that are avoided or lived thru
I'm sorry I can only give the rest of the series mild to moderate stars because it is only semi-interesting, I'll probably finish all 6 just for the fun, maybe but I'm not sure when I'll finish the 6th book, I don't take anything away from Tufo & def don't take away from Sean... but Zombie books get reeeeeeeeel broing after awhile
Mark Tufo's writing style draws you in and hooks you from the start.The characters are 'real', aside from the zombies of course, and I think that's what sets his stories apart from the rest. He has created a relatable set of characters that will make you laugh, gag and sometimes cry.
The book is not over. This is so irritating. It is just as good as the last two, but apparently I have one more to go. I hope.
I am loving the twists and turns that this series takes, above and beyond the typical zombie stories. The off-beat, sometimes lame humor has become a welcome part of the story as we hear the ramblings of Michael Talbot's mind.
Michael's wife Tracy and his big friend B.T. have been added to my list of favorite characters in this series.
Yes! Each book in this series just gets better. It holds my interest. The characters are interesting and you really start to love them.
Still Mike and BT
I love this narraters voice and he does various voices really well.
Never have time to listen all at once, but listen in car to and from work until finished.
Yes, great narration and storyline.
His voices and inflection are fantastic.
Yes, but given its length, not really possible.
