    What made the experience of listening to Zombie Fallout 5 the most enjoyable?

    The narrator has his character down by now in the series. The story was a roller coaster. I had no idea how it was all going to end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Micheal is the best. Over the course of the books he is human, he is every man, he flawed but he loves his friends and family. He get through what he has to and still can have a sense of humor that makes the hard points soften. But he is someone who can get behind and cheer for.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Ummmm...not favorite but I will never forget. Paul and the abandoned house. Really well done. But yeah I can't more. It's in my head forever!


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

    I was a little upset at end. I really need another book. I don't know if this is it for the series. I don't want to give anything away. I understand the ending but I would like more.


    Any additional comments?

    Mark Tufo best zombie book series next to Rhiannon Frater. Money, time, imagination and emotions well spent. Loved it. Getting everyone I know into him.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    What made the experience of listening to Ex-Heroes the most enjoyable?

    The action and comic book feel of the story was great. Total fantasy but had a nice amount of grounding in a bit of everyday. But definitely a super hero story.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    A little more character development, maybe a little bit more development of the sub stories.


    What does Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was great to have both a female and male narrator to read the characters it added to the quality of the audiobook.


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

    I was engaged with the story. A real action story.

    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Spider's Bite to be better than the print version?

    I didn't purchase the print version. But I really enjoyed the audio version of this book. The story was well developed and I enjoyed the character's journey.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gin for sure. A strong but complicated female character.


    What does Lauren Fortgang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Loved she voice and her characterization of the character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Take a drink of Gin and fall into a dark adventure.

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

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

    Love the audio version! Johanna Parker is amazing!


    What other book might you compare Deadlocked to and why?

    I would compare it the early books. Sookie is changing on the inside. It's another big crossroads for Sookie.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The girls at the strip club and the birthday surprise!


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

    It made me almost cry. Harris almost gave me heart attack!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't believe it is ending. Only one more book in the series!

    What did you love best about Club Dead?

    It was an engrossing story. Enjoyed the ride the author took me on. Love the trouble Sookie gets into and the play between Bill and Eric. Worth the purchase price.


    What other book might you compare Club Dead to and why?

    I would compare these books to Harry Potter. The reason why? It's an orphan with powers but it has sexiness and adult problems. All cushioned with action and fantasy. The books weave a larger story. Sookie's place in the world and what she wants out of life.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    She is Sookie. Love the performance.


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

    I laughed, held my breathe and just sank into this story.

    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.

    Story
    Where does Zombie Fallout rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Overall it is a hugh midway selection. Entertaining enough. The plot and the characterization is strong. Enough humor and action for a entertaining listen. I was a little disturbed by one or two similes used by the author. I found them a bit homophobic. But after re-listening to the passages I am going to excuse them as part of the character. Ex army guy, suburban dad, so I guess in line with the character. But gave me pause a moment. There is some strong prose in this piece. The author has done a great job at adding to the canon of paranormal/zombie novels. Will be buying the sequel because I need to know what happens to them all.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the characters. The rye humor of author.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His performance was causally animated and lively. His reading was natural and real.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sometime the only person for the job, when zombies attack is Dad!
