Starting off slow but really brining it home during the second half, Indian Hill is a gory, grown up version of the hunger games with Aliens rather than an oppressive government. Throughout it all Mike Talbot keeps his wise ass cracks and sarcasm as he fights his fellow man and aliens to warn the earth of the coming invasion. If you’re a fan of the characters in the Zombie Fallout series I think you’ll find this series just as engaging.
As always Sean Runnette does a great job of bringing the story to life. From the New England accent to the halting alien speak, he can do it all!
It's funny and keeps your interest the whole book long
to many but every time he makes fun of durgan is great
lough out loud so many times people driving by must have thought i was a loon
I spend about 55 hours a week driving and really enjoy having a good book to pass the miles.
Just finished Indian Hill by Mark Tufo. I enjoyed the book and as always the narration by Sean Runnette was great. He captures the character of Mike perfectly. This book has some of the same characters from the Zombie Fallout series but it takes you down a completely different path. No zombies. Plenty of Aliens. Plenty of the sarcasm and wit from Talbot. Overall a good book that flows pretty well and is narrated very well. I have enjoyed Mr. Tufo's work so far and will continue to read it.
Captivating Funny Thrilling
It reminds me of the original Edgar Rice Borroughs books of lost civilizations and adventure, with more humor than should be allowed in an adventure story.
Sean Runnette IS John Talbott. His subtle ways from moving from character to character is smooth and flawless. He truly provides believability to the story and pulls the characters from the pages.
This book was good better than what I was expecting.
I like how the main charters have taken similar roles as in ZF but not the same.
Great book, but totally different than ZF
You betcha! My favorite author and narrator.
Seemed a little unbelievable. How does a college student turn into a General of a highly covert, underground, elite fighting force that is the 'last great hope' of the earth? Seems highly implausible. Enjoyed the basic plot, but found the underlying story hard to believe.
I found the killing of the people who wanted to leave the complex very disturbing, but highly believable. Humans are routinely confronted with situations that change their perspective in life and death, loyalty, and basic compassion. I don't believe those sent out to 'remove the threat' as bad people, only humans that feel that the renegades are going to destroy their hope for survival.
Liked it well enough to read all three books.
I would definately recommend this book to a friend, if fact I have recommended most of my audiobooks to them. Mark Tufo has an excellent way of bringing you into the character's life and really feeling all the pain and all the emotions THEY are feeling. I compare Mark Tufo's writting in Sci-Fi/Horror to that of George R.R. Martin in the Fantasy genre. Both the top of the barrel, both must reads.
My favorite character in this book is Mike Talbot. Cliche, I know, but really this is the book we get to feel the most for him as he is doing his damndest to get to the one he loves without dying.
Durgan was my favorite in this book, he has a way to piss you off just by his voice. Who cares what is said.
No real extreme reaction other than awe at the brilliance of the story.
