    Jack, a sometimes humorous, sometimes philosophical ex-special operations pilot and soldier is one of the few left to struggle through the desolation left in the aftermath; seeking to survive as a new ferocious species emerges from the rubble, hungry and unrelenting. Will his special-forces training be enough? Will he be able to keep his children safe and guide the few survivors through perils that now roam the world they once knew? Or will the hordes that now own the night prevail, forever removing the last of mankind from existence?

    For the first time, the Internet phenomenon is now in print! Beheading a zombie isn't easy in a world where you're more afraid of the living than the dead. Adrian Ring's simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors. Retreating to Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, Adrian attempts to rescue friends and family on the way while dancing around his impending insanity over who and what he left behind, and evading maniac survivors.

    What made the experience of listening to Dark Recollections the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the humor the most. The journal format is great because there is a lot that we can assume happens and if we need to know anything it will come up in Adrian's future journal entries. This does not create holes in the story line. You get the present with back stories and it all makes sense.


    What other book might you compare Dark Recollections to and why?

    Zombie Fallout - because of the Journal format and Humor and Day By Day Armageddon - because of the Journal Format


    Which character – as performed by James Foster – was your favorite?

    Adrian is my favorite.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt it was serious but very funny at the same time. How does that make sense? lol


    Any additional comments?

    I cant wait for new characters! Adrian is so lonely!

    Adrian's piecemeal life on campus since "That Day" has been a struggle. Retrieving supplies from local neighborhoods filled with the walking dead has been dangerous for him, but he's stayed alive by being a little smarter than the other survivors, and a lot faster than the roaming, hungry zombies that have overtaken his home town, and the world.

    From birth to death, The War is all the citizens of Dystance know. As children it is drilled into their heads that war is the purpose behind all existence. Winter doesn't agree. She's stumbled across remnants of life the way it was before The War began and now she longs to be as free as her ancestors. With help from her best friend, Cedar, and the boy she is forbidden to love, Tallow, she believes she can do it. Winter can see a life beyond the Pickets, beyond the constant hunger and the threat of death, beyond the war machine.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dystance to be better than the print version?

    I love audio books. I always get the audio version.


    What other book might you compare Dystance to and why?

    i sort of felt it was kind of like Hunger Games but Winter is smarter then Catness and we are not sure why the war is happening but it is obviously for someones entertainment or experiment instead of a punishment like in hunger games. and Mark Tufo has a way of making me laugh so it was funnier then hunger games.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    I thought she did a great job. you could tell who was speaking by her voice and she did a great job voicing each characters personality not just the characters sound.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some parts made me laugh. very few made me cry. i was very entertained!!!!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I know this book is targeted towards teens and young adults but i enjoyed it as much as i have enjoyed Zombie Fallout, Indian Hill, Lycan Fallout, Timothy and The Book of Riley. Calis Rose and Spirit Clearing were good but not as funny.

    As the world spirals even further down into the abyss of apocalypse, one man struggles to keep those around him safe. Michael stands side by side with his wife, their children, his friends, and the wonder Bulldog, along with the Wal-Mart greeter Tommy, who is infinitely more than he appears. Whether Tommy is leading Mike and his family and friends to salvation or death remains to be seen.

    when i started this book i was really bummed because i thought it was the end. haha. But when i got to the end there was not end really and i was really confused. so i found the next book and started listening and was very relieved!

    Tommy/Tomas!!!! what is going on with him! does he really hear/see Ryan Seacrest? i have a lot of questions about why he was working at the Walmart in the first place? was he keeping track of Justin? I hope we find out more about why he chose the Talbots. Book 3.5 doesn't answer all of my questions because it doesn't really tell you why he picked them in that book either. i do recommend Book 3.5. it helps a little with some of the why's but not all of them.

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Zombie Fallout to be better than the print version?

    I prefer audio. its easier to multitask. i had to buy the 5th on Kindle. i liked it. i plan on buying it and listening to it if it comes out on audio.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mike of course! I really liked the dog Bear. i was very sad about the poor pup. Mike because, i know more about him then anyone else i guess.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    i loved the narrator! his voice sounds age appropriate. His BT voice sounds right on too! i like his different accents. his female voices sound alright as well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    i mostly laughed. i think i cried when Bear died! that really got me! i thought i might be scared but it wasn't that bad. it is a good thing though. i dont know if i would have read/listened to the others. i prefer slightly scary and mostly funny with some sad mixed in.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish all of Mark Tufo's books were on audio.

    Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department... but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure... in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

    Would you try another book from Jeff Lindsay and/or Jeff Lindsay?

    Yes - only because i feel i should read all of the Dexter books


    What did you like best about this story?

    I dont think there was any part that i really liked. i liked it overall.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Lindsay?

    I would like the original narrator to be cast again


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I watch the television show. so yes i guess


    Any additional comments?

    I feel like Dexter has been making really dumb choices and he should be smarter then that. also he seems to not notice really important facts that should be obvious to his character. its like his character is not always consistent. He is suppose to be smart but he isn't at the same time. Also the part when Dexter is staring at himself in the mirror! OMG that drug on forever. Everyone who had a hand in producing this book needs to listen to that part and make sure that doesn't happen again. I had to speed up the narrator speed to get through it. it was bad. the book started that way too but oh well.

    Dexter is experiencing some major life changes - don't we all? And they're mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals.

    Amazon Customer says: "Odd even for Dexter, but enjoyable!"

    I was not very happy about the Narrator Change. It was hard to listen to at first. But i really wanted to finish the whole story. It was good and i cant wait to listen to the next one!!!
