I love the rest of this series but I would skip this one. It didn't have much to do with the rest except it was the ancestors of the main character - 1918 or so I think. Meh...
unfortunately this book was nothing like the regular series. It had a very cheesy feel to it both in terms of action plot and story. It was also hard to follow sometimes. The regular series is much better.
Yes, and no. Though the book was just shy of 3 hours, it took me twice as long to listen to it. It didn't flow with the rest of the series. I know, I know. It was about a totally different character, and in a different time. But I can see where it ties into this book.
OF COURSE!!!! I'm listening to book 4 now!
Tommy. Who doesn't love Good-Hearted Tommy? :)
Not as a stand alone movie, but as a prelude to book 1. Like a 10 minute flashback in the 1st movie to give us a history on how the Zombies got here.
Like other reviewers have stated, this book did help explain a few things in the story. But in all honesty could've been added to the beginning of book 4. And Dr. Hugh Mann?? Seriously???? *rolls eyes* Would I recommend this as a purchase? Sadly, yes. It explains quite a bit, it's just boring
At first, I was hesitant to listen to this before I jumped on to book number four, but I'm glad that I gave this one a go, first. It's really cool to hear some of the backstory to the virus and discoveries made. This mini-book provides a lot of great information you'll want to know before continuing on with ZF, so don't skip over it!
I love the Zombie fallout series and all the main charters, but this is where it begins. If you love the ZF series this is a must read because this book explains how it all started.
Mark does a awesome job of delivering a great story again. With Sean Runnette petting the icing on the cake to make it perfect.
It's good, but it's more of a background information on the story line. The author does tell a story, but it's more of where the virus come from, Talbots history, and how the virus got out as of today.
Lover of books with a good plot, strong characters, lots of action, no whiners allowed, and only a small amount of well placed cheese
This is a 'history' of sorts, about the Talbot family, the virus and a very important suitcase. No zombie action, but lots of foundation and backstory that isn't crucial to the rest of the series, but it's nice to have even more story knowledge and see how Tommy's been involved with the Talbot's for generations.
Yes, it's a wonderful series
The explanation of the ZF story and origin
I like the early scenes with the microscope
