    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....

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Fans of the zombie genre, who have already read every other zombie book out there, and are looking for something to do.


    Would you recommend A Plague Upon Your Family to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sean Runnette’s performances?

    oh lord no. He sounds like Paul Harvey.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    no reaction whatsoever. the reader is in no way emotionally invested in any of the characters, or at least I was not.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this audiobook mainly because the first book ended abruptly, thinking that just maybe the characters will develop a little, or that I will begin to care if any of them lives or dies. Plus, the idea of intermingling a vampire with zombies sounded unique.

    After reading/listening to the first two books in the series, I've come to appreciate the role of "Editor" in the publishing process. Clearly this series is self-edited by the author. The reader is expected to believe that an ex-Marine, with a blue-collar background regularly uses words such as "interloper", "cacophony", "countenance", "find purchase", "ministrations", and numerous others...this is what i found most off-putting about the series. I guess it was cheaper to use the MS Word "synonymns" feature than to pay a real editor.
