The narrator is the best I've heard on a book.
I love this series. I wish it would never end. Great zombie horror with spots of comedic relief. The narrator is the best!
The story is funny in a gruesome way.
I would compare it to any series of books you really love to read, you can't wait to see what happens in the nexy book.
Mike Talbot the unlikely hero of the story.
Many many laughs.
Mark has continued to make the human element the real story. From the love of a mother for her children, to friends, and brothers. He does well at showing how different people react to this new world they are in. I think the world he shows is honest. There will always be people who put their needs above others, people who give up, people who get by on the luck of finding the right people to hang with, and god willing people who try to do the right thing no matter what. Mike shows that the world may be crashing down around you, but you can still do the right thing not only for your friends and family but also for the people you come into contact with. He also made me want to call my nephew up and go over and play with his legos.
I will not say the moment but this is the first book I have ever praid for a hail mary. I normally hate when authors take an easy way. They want a catalist in thier book so they do something and then have to give the characters a hail mary to bring the story where they want. Example of this would be killing a character off and then cloning them to be the exact same person. It is a cheat, and normally takes away from the story for me.
Having said all of that Mark has made some of these characters so real for me that when something happened to one of my favorites I started wishing and hoping for the proverbial hail mary. Mark could have done anything he wanted to save this person and I would have just rolled along with it because I was wishing with all of my heart he survived.
He did a fantastic job as usual. I would deffiently be willing to listen to more books he has narrated
Yes I wanted someone to blow the head off of one of the companions. As you listen to this book I am sure you will be able to figure out which one it is. I also cried like a little girl while laughing and have no qualms about saying that.
Mark has come up with new and interesting/disgustingly disturbing ways to torture the survivors. You may never look at your own life the same way again
I am still loving this series and I really don't want it to end, however some of the stories in this book are a bit long winded.
I do enjoy hearing the ramblings that go on in the head of the main character, Michael Talbot, but a few of the "looks back" into his life felt a bit out of place and drawn out.
Nevertheless, I can't wait to move on the Book 6. Marc Tufo writes a great story and these minor criticisms don't change that.
Keeps you hanging.
To me there is no comparison. This series is great.
His various character voices
The very end
There has got to be a Fallout 6. Mr. Tufo, if you haven't started on it yet, please get writing. I can't wait to see how this really ends!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was so intense...so emotional.
That it gave you a taste of how domestic animals turn viscous .
The whole Paul scene.
Made me cry a lot.
Sean Runnette is an amazing reader.
YES, I have fallen in love with each character and although this book seems to have ADHD I find myself pleased as each life unfolds.
Mark's books are to short. Would love to get my monies worth in length. I seem to go through these in a couple of days.
YES, love love love his transitions from character to character.
Absolutely, or at least a minimum of 20 hours.
I really would love to read Mark's next adventures. I really would love to me Mark Tufo. Mark will you be in Southern Cali anytime soon?
Ex-military high school math teacher.
I would recommend this book, this series, for that matter all of Mark Tufo's books to anyone able to read who has even an ounce of humor in them. The writing is fun, the action is fast, and the wit, well low brow at times, is just plain hilarious as friends attempt to survive the zombie apocalypse while making digs at one another's idiosyncrasies.
As one man scavenges from a long abandoned house, he makes a great find.
At the end of the book, retribution for a fallen comrade is dished out to those who deserve it.
I didn't want to go to sleep, put everything else aside, other than my job, and read this.
I can't wait for the sixth book in the series.
I've replaced my HD TV with the Audible app.
NO EFFIN' WAY!
I enjoyed the Wide Spread Panic concert and history of Paul and Talbot.
Talbot and BT reunion.
Laughs are guaranteed as always when Michael Talbot is in the book. I didn't cry but I was left in disbelief at moments in the book.
This book starts to explain the many lives of Michael Talbot and how he has lived on so many different levels or plains of existence. It will lay a foundation for the Indian Hill series and the Spirit Clearing adventure. I like to think of this series as the foundation of the Talbot lives and if you choose to delve into the other Talbot stories just keep in mind that they are intended to be stand alone books. They are in no way prequels to this series and only additional adventures. As always this book delivers the goods and won't disappoint. Mark Tufo has done it again and Sean Runnette delivers those goods in fine fashion.
Disappointing listening to the hours of flashback stories that have nothing to do with the current plot. I have no idea how a 10+ hour book only covered about 1 day in real time in the story. I kept thinking the stories would get better with each book and I kept reading them because I was invested. But don't make my mistake. Stop after the first book or don't get started at all.
Have more plot covered in the books. Don't dwell for hours talking about the main character's idiosyncrasies. Have a really robust storyline where things actually happen. I get tired of the monotony of nothing happening in the plot.
Reading performance is good. But this can't make up for a poor book.
Moving on back to tried and trusted authors ...
