Didn't think I would like it at first, because I started reading the ZF series first. Unknowingly not thinking, if those books were masterfully written why wouldn't I like this series.
Tufo takes his Mike Talbot character and reboots him in a new branch of time and situation in Indian Hill. The fact that Mike Talbot is his central character in this universe and others is an interesting twist that lets the reader be familiar with the character while still having everything come across as fresh and new. Tufo is always a fun read, and I'll definitely be continuing this series.
I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.
Another great series from Tufo/Runnette! I'm getting caught up on reviews. This is for the first 5 in the series. I loved them all with the exception of #3, which under-delivered for me, but was still great. I like Zombie Fallout series best still, but I highly recommend this one as well. If you are familiar with Tufo's other works, then many of the names and personalities will be familiar. He sticks with winning combinations and just changes the situations these characters find themselves in. Get the series!
Not as good as the zombies! It was a pretty good story, I couldn't really grasp hold of crocodiles or alligators for aliens. On the other hand this reader can make anything enjoyable and Talbot is still awesome!
Yes! I was a little leary of a John Talbot alternate reality since I am a huge fan of Zombie Fallout but another review (from the audiobook reviewer) convinced me to listen and I'm glad I did. Can't wait to start the next book.
Some parts reminded me of the show Falling Skies just because its an average guy who ends up taking a stand against aliens but the similarities end there. I found the plot and story original for this type of story.
I am never disapointed when listening to Sean Runnette's narrations. Great voice, just the right amount of inflections at the right times as well as a comfortable listening speed.
it's among the top 5 within my entire library and would rank among the top 3 for this genre
I enjoyed Zombie Fallout much more. The humor is missing in this book, and Mike is not as likable, even though he is the 'hero'. Zombie Fallout did not get repetitive while the I felt Indian Hill did.

The first 8 or 9 hours were excellent.. great story line, the plot progressed along, even if you could pretty much predict where it was going. Then the last 2 or so hours were painful. Literally - the plot stalled, the violence and gore ramped up and I could not wait for it to finish. So much so that the last 45 minutes I put the speed at 2x, just to hurry to the end. Then it just stopped, bam. The ending was very weak. I guess you are supposed to buy book 2, etc..
