The only thing I can say is, my reaction for giving this one a 4* rating is because there is a lot of repeating of facts we already know. I've read in some other reviews that they are exact paragraphs... that's horse manure and not true... but yes background information is given so that this could be read without starting from book one... and that's fine it's just Mike REALLY likes to talk..
I honestly thought the story would take a different direction. But it's all good. More Talbot back story which is just an interesting as the zombie battles. :)
Love the story line. But starting to drift off in another direction. I'll invest in the next book in this series cause I like the narrator. after that I will have to see.
I have fallen in love with each Mark Tufo book in this series! The writing is quote relatable in daily life and the Talbot way of doing things proves equally adventurous and horrifying.
The narrator has done a exemplary performance of fleshing out all the characters and deserves some type of cash reward for his delivery throughout this series thus far!
Once again, Talbot is trying to keep his family safe, trying to get them back to his brother Ron's compound. It is the only place he feels they will be safe. Tomas is still manipulating him and as much of the situation as he can but he is still too much of an unknown. Allowing Tomas to turn him into a half vamp is not what he would have wanted but it was the only way to get out of a very bad situation. His family has always been his priority and this time he decides it's time to stop running and take the fight to Eliza. There are plenty of Talbot moments and Deneaunx is a surprise, But this is the Zombie apocalypse so there is tradgedy, some heart breaking. And it is what makes a Talbot adventure everything we expect it to be. And of course let us not forget Sean Runnette; I never get tired of listening to him. His narration of ZF brings Michael Talbot to life with all the nuances, snide remarks, sarcasm, OCD, germaphobia....well you get the picture... that Tufo has infused in his written word. Kudos to both writer and narrator for a great job.
after reading the reviews, I was skeptical. but tufo came through, with a great story. I thought the remembrance from the past was apt, and it added to the depth of the story.
Characters are intriguing. The story is solid in the right places. Mark Tufo's End of the World has a hero I can't help but like. Dis agreeing with his take on pet preferences and the role women play in his stories is easy. (Low hanging Fruit.). But, his fantasy of brothers in arms and family loyalty is touching. He telegraphs the fate of many of his characters. ...you know who should die ugly. ...you know whose theater will break your heart. He pulls those strings fairly predictable. But, it still works. It is a fun and funny trip.
