I love the flashbacks. I guess they're those things that you either like and don't mind the story being interrupted or you don't like and want the plot to just blast ahead. But for me, it's character growth and I feel like I'm getting to know more and more about these people I've came to feel like are part of my world now. Plus, getting to the end as slowly as possible is something I like. Yes. Drag this story on. Because I don't want it to ever end. The things that Mike gets into and his youth is always something I like hearing about. And I do enjoy hearing about Eliza and Tommy's pasts, as well. This book brought more to life about them and I keep finding myself wondering what the F will happen next!
That being said, man this was a rough book. The end isn't pretty and it probably scarred me for life, especially being a cat lover. I hate Vivian. With a passion. I can't wait for her demise and I hope it's a good one.
Anything written by Mark Tufo deserves five stars I've yet to read a book from him that has not been absolutely amazing the writing is incredible the imagination Mark has is unbelievable!
Ok so my only issue with this story is like many others have said the author threw in a ton of useless flashbacks to their college day hijinks and/or the middle aged drunken parties. I mean while many of them were interesting they had nothing whatsoever to do with the actual story other than as filler to extend the actual story. Multiple times I had to fight the urge to skip over a flashback thinking there must be a reason or so thing that will explain why such a long flashback was included but there wasn't. Feel free to skip any flashbacks except those with Thomas or Eliza as those are the only ones that have any real meaning to the story.
Love this series. I'm on my second round of listening. For me to reread or relisten to a book means I loved it. I'm mainly I am starting over because I just purchased book 9 and want to make sure I haven't forgotten one yummy word! Ready for book 6! See you in a couple days!
I have to agree with the others. The 40+ minute flashbacks were really annoying when all I wanted was to hear the rest of the main story lines. Would have been much better if they were short and to the point. Excellent performance as usual and I'm still hooked, this book just didn't agree with me.
If your looking for a series to keep you captivated, Zombie Fallout is it. I went through all 8 books straight. I can not wait for book 9.
