If you are a Tufo fan you wont be disappointed. This is right up there. Different than the zombie novels, but still creates good suspense.
Talbot, as you would expect.
The scene where Talbot encounters personal tragedy is truly gripping stuff. This scene brought more emotion to the table than in any other Tufo writing.
Venture out from the zombie genre and take a listen. Good tie in of characters from across Tufo's other books, but not over done. If you have not listened to Tufo before try this one. The reader is really good also.
I would. I adore Mike Talbot, and I find the narrator to be completely enthralling.
Mike Talbot. You must read this. It is entertaining from start to finish. I can think of no boring or slow parts through the whole book.
Mike Talbot. I absolutely love his attitude.
I liked the story a lot, it started off a little slow, then really pulled me in. It was interesting hearing a love story from a male perspective. I really enjoyed Mike's transformation from careless kid to a mature adult.
I wouldn't compare it to a specific book, but it had a very Dean Koontz vibe to it. The story has elements of humor, pain, and horror.
I have not listened to any other Sean Runnette performance.
Jandilynn was the most memorable character because she was so full of life and love. She brought the book to life.
Absolutely. This is a very complex story line. Very enjoyable with Mark's signature witty humor.
Getting even more details about the other Michael Talbot's running around in Mark's head. This is a great story exploring life and death, between and beyond.
Sean has the idiosyncrasies of all the characters down. He performs them flawlessly.
Other than Jandilyn for obvious reasons, but I would like to take out Mike. I would like to understand more about what makes him tick. He is a very complex, witty and dark (when needed) character.
Check out the rest of the Mark's books. They are all so far great!
I have yet to read the paper back but the Audio was incredible.!!!
The last 10 Min... Mind Exploded!!!
Depth, with out a doubt.. just reading it your left to mearly hear yourself with no differentiation of character... Sean gives the character such depth it allows for then to stick and you grow more attached that watching a show
Literally madame laugh outloud a few times and honestly gave me goose bumps on 2 occAsions
Mark Turk is incredible and I recommend him to just about everyone I know.... And with Sean reading ... Perfection........ This book was a torrent of emotions and if you were as vested into the Mike Talbot character is such depths as I was after listening to all the ZF and IH series up to date then going back and heralding this.... I borderline cried at one point... Best way to describe is MIND EXPLOSION
I would reccomend the Zombie Fallout series first.. this one is good when it goes on sale.
It was good, got a tad bit longish near the end.. going a bit wierder after * spoiler* the main characters wife dies. It all ties together for a complete ending.
It had a good storyline.
Mike's paranormal vision, and the love between him and his wife.
Excellant job narrating!
Yes, but not award winning or anything.
I haven't read the print version
The main character because he has a great sense of humor
When they find out they are having a baby
Alternately boring, sappy, and senseless. The story never seemed to go anywhere. The characters did random things for no apparent reason, then abruptly changed their mind or attitude and did the opposite. SPOILER ALERT: The whole "it never really happened" explanation is totally unsatisfying.
SPOILER ALERT: A whole book that was pretty much a dream, with the abrupt unexplained shifts-in-reality that occur in dreams, is pretty frustrating to read/hear. It's like someone telling you about their wacky nightmare for 9+ hours. For example, the sheriff shows up and is oddly hostile, says some other-wordly creepy things, but then later shows up and is friendly. The main character just accepts this with no question.
I would have liked a story that builds into something more meaningful than, "Oh, you just imagined it." The weak explanation about the young souls not being ready to be collected just makes no sense. The characters can't even make sense of it, let alone the reader/listener.
I thought the narrator did a good job.
The Spirit Clearing itself. It had no meaning to the rest of the story, as far as I can tell.
I did enjoy the "smart ass" humor, though at sometimes the jokes were completely out of place with the scenarios.
Just a dude
The top! always a treart to read and this is a wonderful new expansion of his writing scope.
Stephen King's maybe if Stephen were funny.
The end well tied together. Sweet, scary and overall pretty amazing.
Laughed, cried, was scared and had to turn the lights on and drink a beer.
Waiting for more.
Mother of teenaged bear, Wife to chaos, Warrior
Got through it finally
I felt like the story went no where I was always "wondering where's this going?"
More descriptive narration. When at the climax I still feel like he was reading the story as it was the beginning.
This is a after school special at best.
