    The day the world ended, Erik Tragger escaped to the mountains. Cut off from civilization for five months, he returned to find a ruined city now ruled by the living dead. Tragger joins a group of survivors with a plan: make it to Portland where humanity is carving out a stronghold. But along the way they face opposition at every turn - the dead, rogue military forces, looters - and a new enemy more dangerous than any they have yet encountered. Among the stumbling, mindless zombies are... ghouls.

    What would have made Beyond the Barriers better?

    A few more years of writing experience for the author? And a little research by the author? Maybe?


    What was most disappointing about Timothy W. Long’s story?

    The main character. Although intro'ed as a ' vet with Special Forces' training, his weapon of choice was tada... a 20 gauge pump shotgun? I gave up when Tragger the main character observed someone as she 'sighted down the automatic barrel.' Later Tragger 'slid back the top of the automatic...' Thank God no one 'checked the magazine on their revolver'. another favorite of mine. Give me a break. Do some research! Would love to have my money back.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christian Rummel’s performances?

    No. Too over the top.


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

    Bordom.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother if you are over 15 years of age.

    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.

    What disappointed you about Zombie Fallout?

    I am a longtime fan of Zombie fiction, but two hours of this 'novel' was about all I could take. There was nothing about this story that did not disappoint me. The writer's style was amateurish and riddled with cliches and clumsy puns. His lack of knowledge about gunfights and tactics were downright embarrassing and in no way believable as hard as I tried to just go with it. The protagonist and his family would have lasted about 2 hours had any part of this story even the least bit true to the genre. But most of all this guy just can't write. His characters are not even one dimensional and the plot development is on a par with what one might expect from an 8th grade creative writing class.
