It's hard to listen to a book you know is going to have a sequel... Especially knowing that this is supposed to be the end all.. The last book was just buying time... . It's not bad... Just feels like a lot of time is wasted with problems that could be more easily solved.
Well.... don't turn a character form the last story insane. Someone whose lived with their kid for several months in a post apocalyptic world.. .*spoilers* would not all of a sudden decide to kill him.
It's sorta okay
The author basically forces sequels to this book..... adding another level of evil on top of the level they've been fighting....
This should have been the end to the series... the author got greedy and forced another book.... now who knows if this series will end ...?
Cal Jones the book dude
When the story finally ended I was looking forward to download part 7 and 8. All I can say is wwmd ( WHAT WOULD MIKE DO).
Books books books
I'm so close to saying all my zombies books need to be written by Mark and read by Sean. This keeps you on the edge of your seat keeps you biting your nails makes you want to cover your eyes and ears. Then you finish and you need to move on to the next in line.
Mark Tufo’s writing is always full of non-sequiters, (more then any Family Guy episode).
If you’ve made it to Zombie Fallout 6, then you know this.
I want to first say, this is one of his best books. The stuff that happens is more exciting then the other stories.
That said, he has far too many side tracks in this one.
And 2 really long ones, that are either Filler (to hit his editor’s demand for 500 pages), or for his own amusement because he likes to write short stories.
If you got this far, then you remember the story of the the boats at the end of one of the other books, or the story of Mike fire-bombing a car, and how he got into the military.
This one has 3 of those.
1) is a 15 minute bla-bla about how difficult the Marines are, and how much they didn’t eat, all to say that MREs are difficult to open, and taste bad.
2) is 40 minutes of him waring (by pulling pranks) with the RA in collage. This has absolutely zero context in the story.
3) is another 40 minutes.. maybe 60… of him going to a concert and getting drunk with his friends. Best time of his life.
Skipping any of these takes NOTHING away from the main story.
They are all told well, but take you out of the story for SO long, that you forget that there is something to get back to.
There is a 4th….. It’s not quite a story. At the end, we start going through Mike’s mind while in a dream-state.
This goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on… yeah… and on.
The last 10 minutes of this, are important.
aside from these 4 issues, I think this is one of the best ZF books to date.
SCIFI DVDS RULE
No. One time was sufficient although I did have to relisten to several parts to grasp the story and see if I overlooked something. I listen to about 25,000 pages of audio books each year and it is very rare that I have to do this (relisten). Mostly I felt that the author was trying to tie up too many loose ends and did not explain why things occured. Also, the payoff occured about 75% into the book and how the deed was accomplished was never explained....it just happened. More specifically the Shaman resolution was left vague. Perhaps it is my fault as it has been a while since listening to prior book?
I liked the very very very end (last 15 minutes) only as a back story to most of the prior 5 books but again I was not exacty sure what was going on prior to that in the Epilogue. Almost like he left out a chapter or two...
Yes. the prior 5 books in this series. Always excellent. One of the reasons that I stuck with this series even through the lesser books.
Humor was still strong point as well as the Journal entry narrative tool.
all things awesome
From five minutes into the first Zombie Fallout novel, I was hooked. Mark Tufo's writing and Sean Runnette's narration are a match made in heaven. I hope to hear more from this duo in the future.
I had read (or rather, listened) to books one through four - totally skipped five based on a myriad of poor reviews - and signed up for audible just so I could listen to the conclusion of this series. (of course, now I'm completely hooked on audible and find myself buying and listening to new books way more often than I anticipated).
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, though it doesn't compare to books one or two. I was glad to finally learn the back story of Eliza and quite liked the new hippie millionaire he stumbled across. I found it easier to just roll with the story and not think too deep about how illogical some of the plot points were, like how you watch an episode of the A-Team where a jeep blows up, flips over, and the passenger crawl out like nothing happened. It's still a fun ride, albeit an implausible one.
I will give it this - I was totally surprised by the end. Possible setup for a prequel?
Another incredible book in the series that just keeps you hanging in there for the next one!
this series in awesome!!! the story is captivating, the narration is great Sean Runnette is one of the best in the business. I've finished this series at least 4 times and it just as good as the first.
