Lots of cliche lines and one-liners, with every imaginable (and unimaginable) way of describing peeling a person apart and eating them.
Te two of these guys are ruining my experience for listening to any other type of book. Between the writer Mark Tufo having a fantastic, compelling and descriptive storyline, and having Sean Runnette with his sexy voice, I can't listen to any other narrator or genre of book. Timothy, was a hard book for me to buy because it was only 3 hours. However it was a great three hours that should not be missed before listening to Tim 2. I tried to just listen to Tim to and figure out what was happening. But even though tufo explains bits and pieces of the previous book in his series you still miss a good portion of information if you do not read the previous book
Mark Tufo is one of my all time favourite author. His books are always full of action, suspense and grossness.
Timothy is a book I debated long and hard about reading because I really hate clowns and that cover art is terrifying, more so that Kings IT. However l finally plucked up the courage and dived in.
Tufo has crafted a brilliant tale told from the perspective of a zombie loosely set within the same world and time as his Zombie Fallout series.
The twist is just how sick and twisted the zombie's mind works. Timothy has issues!
Sean Runnette has impeccable delivery as per usual (can this guy do a bad reading?).
His book WILL make you feel uneasy and possibly sick to your stomach.
This is a truly diabolical book, graphic violence and Very dark humor. The main character is one of a kind, as is the story! If you're not squeamish it's a faced paced hell of a book! Nobody narrates better than Sean Runnette, so it's a win, win!
I heard about this novel a few years ago, and basically discarded it on the premise alone. A person trapped within a zombie body seemed too absured to me, even when I love both Sci-Fi and Horror. However, I am not sorry I gave it a try. The story is very original, and the development of the relationship between Timothy and Hugh is really interesting. It is very well done, and by the end of it, you might find yourself rooting for the psychopath!
Fair warning, if gory detail is not your thing, leave this one. I think all the nasty details serve it's purpose in the story, but it is pretty graphic.
Timothy was definitely darker than Mark's other series like Zombie Fallout but it wasn't as bad as I had expected it to be. Maybe that is because after reading so many reviews and hearing so many people talk about how bad it was I had pictured much worse in my mind. There is definitely a lot more explicit content in this book. If you are offended by these thing then this book is probably not for you but I didn't think is was bad and will be starting the 2nd book shortly.
Fair warning: This book is only for gore fans.
Ok, warning aside the basic premise of this book is that the zombie apocolypse hits and you get to follow along with Timothy, a retired football player who has a side job as a clown, who gets infected.
Except in this apocalypse, he runs back-seat while the virus takes over his body. He is still consciously aware.
Except in this apocalypse, Timothy decides he's not just going to sit back, he's going to take an active role...and he just doesn't find what's going on disgusting...he finds it entertaining, fun and most of all, something he can really get into...
Final warning: I'm serious, it's only for the gore fans, and people who are NOT NOT NOT easily offended. This book will probably push every boundary you have when it comes to "That's so offensive" I liked it because, well, sometimes you've just had a REALLY bad day and want to see the world burn...and this book gives you that.
This book is amazing. I've worked in the medical field and have seen some terrible things, but I could always put them aside and enjoy a meal afterward. However, while listening to this book and enjoying some hot wings, I found that I simply could not continue to eat while listening to this book. Incredible, I've never listened to such a depraved characters inner dialog and at the same time been cheering him on through the thrill of tearing people apart and eating them. This book really is something special :)
Readers beware this is not a book for someone who does not have a dark sick sense of humor. This is not the Mike Talbot series. This is from the zombies view and it is raw and very dark graphic book. That being said I bought Tim 2 before finishing this book.
