All and all it is an okay book. The reader just has to go into these additional books using the Michael Talbot character and his companions as a stand alone alternate universe that is in no way as good as the Zombie Fallout series.
It isn't bad but it isn't the greatest spin off of a true core of who Michael Talbot is as you come to know and love. It changes key aspects of his basic life experiences which are what made him the character that is so awesome in the other series.
In this one I'd have to say Talbot's new older friend is my favorite. Jed outshined everyone else in this story by Tufo.
I would only because I'm a huge fan of Talbot and enjoy all of Tufo's books despite the differances in his presentations.
Good but not Great. Wait till it's on sale vs. one you are behind the power curve if you didn't pre order it.
I always say I won't include spoilers and I'll continue with that by saying you won't be disappointed. Mark Tufo delivers the goods and wraps up this series in fine fashion.
The reunion in the living room choked me up. Gotta love me some BT
Sean delivers the Talbot family banter and sarcasm second to none.
The Tufo/Runnette combination always makes me laugh if a Talbot is involved. Throw in some BT and a little Tommy and it's a masterpiece.
If you have never read the Zombie Fallout series and have just now found this adventure I envy you. I was lucky to come in late in the series as the 5th book came out and listened to the entire series to that point in less than a week. The months of waiting for this final book in the saga was painful and way to long. I relistened to the entire series no less than four complete times before this release and several of the books mulitiple times or back to back. Bring on Hollywood and the attempts to capture the greatness of the Zombie Fallout.
Talbot and BT
BT really starts to come into his own in this installment
The introduction of Pork Chop was full of chuckles and original Talbotisims.
Yes it is and pretty easy to do.
The introduction to the different plains of existance come through and prepare the reader for things yet to come.
This drags out and holds the reader hostage for a truth that should have been told to reader about Gideon in book one. I got so frustrated with this book it took me more than a month to make myself listen to it in it's entirety. Worse than the first installment and the return of the "C" word with a vengance that left me livid more times than I can count as I stopped the book and walked away from it for days if not weeks on end. I'm sure in print it isn't that bad but for me it's a deal breaker. A much less vulgar noun would have made this book a 3 star story. Can't recommend the series. Give me the last hour of the book and I'd have been much happier than being forced to listen to the 18 plus hours in the two books that lead up to the big revelation.
Save yourself the frustration and go snuggle up with Christian and Anna.
If anyone tells you this book or the series is a substitue for "50 Shades" they are sadly mistaken. I didn't care for this one. It had it's moments and some great erotic interactions but too often than not I was totally turned off by the vulgar use of the "C" word. Sylvia Day didn't do me any favors with this one and have stopped and stared this one so many times I lost count I felt so much frustration and loathing for Eva I'd have kicked her to the curb faster than any woman I've ever dated. Gideon Cross is a piece of work in and of himself and he deserves Eva and all the raining maddness the two of them give each other.
Not my favorite but not the worst waste of a credit by far. Take it for what it is and don't think you are climbing into a series that comes close to competeing with others out there that are some much more rewarding.
This long awaited conclusion to an outstanding three book series was almost as bad as the long wait. The release date of this book was pushed back and pushed back and the way the book wraps up seems very rushed. A fourth book for the series would have satisfied the unexpected change from Kill's 1st person perspective that was so endearing in the two previous installments. It takes time to adjust to the new style of writing and it becomes overly techinical at times like the Morningstar series which this series has never done before. I enjoyed the book but hoped for so much more and didn't like the changes or the feel that this book delivered. Unlike the movies ussually book sequels are as good if not better as the reader comes closer to the characters over the life span of a series. This culmination of the series doesn't deliver that content and fullfilled feeling even though it wraps up much of the storyline. Let's hope there is a 3.5 or a fourth book with an expanded companion more detailed and extended version of the events in the last 20-30 minutes of this reading.
Jay Snyder does his best with the text he was presented but the readers ability to identify with Kill seems secondary to the bombardment of all the extra storylines that are introduced in this ramshackled installment of Day by Day. Hence where is the Day by Day complete diary of Killroy that carries the story to a new and more detailed emotional experience that he so desperately deserved.
Would I buy this book again? Yes, with the warning that one should be prepared for a different experince than they had in the first two books where this one left me feeling less than.
I personally prefer audiobooks and Jay Snyder delivers another outstanding performance.
I really enjoyed the charchter development and how the steady growth of emotion through the eyes Killroy
I enjoyed the addition of the character who gives Killroy his nickname. The two play well off of each other and open up a new avenue of friendship.
Even more so than in the first book as the character development only continues to improve and add to a great story
I listened to this one in one sitting and then had to wait months for Shattered Hourglass.
Yes I would. "Killroy" keeps an outstanding running account of his day to day goings on when he finds himself in a fight for survival among the ever growning and changing zombies that are taking over the world.
"Killroy" is the main character and his true name is never given as he speaks in the first person which adds to the readers ability to identify with hime as you see the world through his eyes and feel his emotions through the great story telling by J.L. Bourne
For me this is a duplicate question and instead I will say that the thing I found refreshing about this book is it isn't overly technical but gets the entire picture to the reader without a required military background to understand the storyline.
I did but as always I refuse to include spoilers in my reviews. You'll have your own extreme reations as well. This book is a great start to the series and well worth the credit.
One of my top three favorite series in the Zombie genre. I highly suggest you snatch this one up it won't leave you all alone amongst the undead.
Spectacular sound presentation
I fell for this book in it's entirety and was blessed to have it as my first ever audiobook originally on tape in the early 90's. I can't pick just one. I've been hooked on audiobooks ever since.
This is by far my favorite version and I have listened to all of his books.
Rename a classic? You've got to be joking.
The sound quality and narration is fantastic. I highly recommend you listen with headphones the first time through to get the full surround sound experience. Frank's best book by far. The presentation of reality with the spirit world interlaced throughout is food for thought. Great story and I've always hoped for more along this genre after Piercing the Darkness.
No I would not. Once you get to know the main characters you are finally able to identify and enjoy their story. Unfortunately that takes hours to develop and I almost stopped listening before I reached that point.
I am going to finish the series but I don't care for this author and won't be likely to listen to any other books she has written.
I preferred Paula's narration and without her performance there wouldn't have been any saving this book.
I would have been content if the book stood alone and wasn't a series.
If you are a person who doesn't read and enjoy blogs on a regular basis this book probably isn't for you. It has some redeeming factors but not the greatest zombie series by far. So much more could have been done with the idea for this book but sadly it falls well short of it's potential.
