    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.

    Story

    The story unfolded nicely at the beginning, however; it kind of hung in there for a while, although new characters came into the book they vanished as fast as they appeared. The end of the book was very disappointing, I kind of "hung" in trying to figure out if I had downloaded the wrong book part. The ending was abrupt and for a "long" moment I was lost, I actually had to Google the title to find out what was happening, that is when I discovered the next book "The End Has Come and Gone".
    Overall, the book unfolded nicely, kind of slow at times, the end of the book (part) was unexpected and abrupt.

    Deep in the Nevada desert is the most secure compound in the United States: Area 51. The most chilling experiment of all time is about to begin there. The president doesn't know about it. Just a few scientists and military personnel working for Majestic-12 do, and they are about to make a very big mistake.

    Story

    I confused this book with one of the same title Area 51 by Annie Jacobsen, however; the book was very interesting and action packed, with some real historical facts. I enjoyed listening to this book, no regrets.

    Story

    I was impressed with this book, great job at gathering all of the historical information. I was struck to find out this book records the first documented serial killer in America. The book described why Chicago is called the "windy city" and is not because of the winds from the Great Lakes, it was the "vocal war" between New York and Chicago to hold the first World Fair.
    This book guides you through history unfolding great forgotten events in the United States of America: the World Fair, the Chicago Ferris Wheel built for the world fair against all odds, the Columbus anniversary and the infamous Herman Webster Mudgett - aka Dr. Henry Howard Holmes and his "cattle of death".
    This book should be a mandatory reading in the U.S. educational system.

    Story

    In my opinion this was the worse book in the entire sequence. It was very disappointing, long and frustrating. I did not enjoyed the book as the previous one, the author made a mistake in "stretching" the story what ever the reason it was a failure. I will listen to the last book when it becomes available hoping that he story will finally come to a closing.
    Buy the book to keep informed, the entire book is not a failure is just not what you would expect.

    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

    From the start I liked this Talbot guy, very resourceful and funny as heck. The plot was slow to unfold, however; it did not matter Tommy and Talbot with his black humor kept me hooked to the device, his "dirty mouth" and comments reminded me of my USMC boot camp drill instructor. About an hour or so later this mystery "zombie lady" appeared as the story unfolded it became evident this book was not only going to be funny but great. I truly enjoyed it, nice job at keeping the suspense, killings (zombie and non-zombie alike) and love wrapped up and hard to put down.

    Story

    I purchased this book hoping for a great story. I've listen to many zombie books, first one by accident, and have more or less enjoyed the plot. This book seems to be written without any sequential planning, the main character lacks common sense, zombies appear and disappear without warning, the whole thing is like a circus. The narrator is trying to "keep the book alive" but is impossible. I spent the first three hours of listening trying to "get somewhere", hoping for something, three hours later the book turned into a zombie, I had to "delete" it to avoid further damage.

    After six months in the quarantine, Remy finds out things are much worse than she feared. Her plans to escape come with a heavy cost, and she realizes that zombies aren't the worst of her problems. This is a young adult novel with language, violence, and sexual situations. Not recommended for readers under the age of 17.

    Story

    This was a very good book, I particularly enjoyed the sequence between books "Hollowmen and Hollowland" the narrator was great, funny at times when she tried to imitate male voices, overall she did a great job. The book was easy to understand and follow, the story, characters and plot was great. I enjoyed this book. A final note, this book is not a typical zombie story, although there were fights for survival, it concentrated mostly in the humane area, great twist to the story.

    And the dead shall rise... Two hellish years. That's how long it's been since the hurricanes flooded the Gulf Coast, and the dead rose up from the ruins. The cities were quarantined; the infected, contained. Any unlucky survivors were left to fend for themselves. A feast for the dead. And the living shall gather... One boatload of refugees manages to make it out alive - but one passenger carries the virus. Within weeks, the zombie epidemic spreads across the globe.

    Story

    I was kind of disappointed with this book, maybe I expected a better outcome. This is your typical "zombie story" nothing out of the ordinary, except at times I truly though this story had the same layout as "The Stand" from Stephen King. I felt frustrated time and time again when listening to the monotonous story. The preacher with its followers and their promise of a better live is almost the same as the "walking dude" in Las Vegas extracted from The Stand. I hope I'm wrong, but I think Mr. McKinney read "The Stand" once too many times. Not worth your credit.
