    Before there were zombies.... There was the virus that started it all. In this Zombie Fallout prequel, Mark Tufo tells the story of how it all began.

    Yes

    I love the rest of this series but I would skip this one. It didn't have much to do with the rest except it was the ancestors of the main character - 1918 or so I think. Meh...

    The zombie apocalypse rages on. In the small town of Clayfield, Kentucky, survivors attempt to carve out new lives for themselves. There is hope that eventually Clayfield can be secured, but first the undead must be eliminated and law and order must be restored. Unfortunately, the survivors might not ever get to implement their plan. Gangs of looters continue to strike the town and news filters in that something worse could be coming.

    What made the experience of listening to All That I See the most enjoyable?

    I liked this one even better than the first - which you must read first. If you have ever wondered what would happen in a small rural southern town to a regular Joe when the zombie apocalypse comes - this book is a darn good start. Not an action barn burner but a decent amount of suspense and a lot of "realism" in the writer's approach. Worth my time for sure.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Aiello’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Consistently solid narrator.

    On a cold February day in the small town of Clayfield, Kentucky, an unsuspecting and unprepared museum director finds himself in the middle of hell on earth. A pandemic is spreading around the globe, and it’s turning most of the residents of Clayfield into murderous zombies. Having no safe haven to which he can flee, the director decides to stick it out near his hometown and wait for the government to send help. But the disease and those infected are not his only concerns....

    Mike Naka says: "surprisingly good"
    "Good small town zombie outbreak story."

    Nineteen-year-old Mora is on a mission to save her village from the relentless greyskins, and there is only one man that can help her, Jeremiah of Screven. As she travels the wastelands, she discovers a power within herself, a power she believes no other human possesses. That is, until she meets others like her - the ones who call themselves the Starborn. These super-humans are on a mission also: to destroy the undead greyskins, and take down the greedy Jeremiah.

    What was most disappointing about Jason D. Morrow’s story?

    Not a lot of tension or action. Very young adult whiny romance novelly with a few zombies in the background. Not for me.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The voice fit the book - whiny teenager - but it made my teeth hurt.

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a weird little series. It took me halfway through the first book to get into the groove of the inappropriate humor, what is usually internal dialogue being external, and seemingly light-hearted approach to the zombie genre. Once I got it into my head that this felt like a character with some time and distance from the events using the "laugh or lose your mind and cry" approach it all made sense to me. I would encourage readers to hang in there, get through the first book, and see if it doesn't grow on you. If I hadn't paid 20 bucks for the audio book I would have stopped a chapter in. I'm soooo glad I didn't because now I'm on book 6 and I love this series. This isn't a humorous take on zombies. It is a character (like cops, military, er nurses etc) using sarcasm and black humor to get through tragedy and horror.

    The Talbots are evacuating their home amidst a zombie apocalypse. Mankind is on the edge of extinction as a new dominant, mindless opponent scours the landscape in search of food, which just so happens to be noninfected humans. The Talbots have escaped Little Turtle, but to what end? On the run, they find themselves encountering a far vaster evil than the one that has already beset them. As they travel across the countryside they soon learn that there are more than just zombies to be fearful of....

    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.
