Publisher's Summary

From Mike Talbot's journal:

"The End . . . has come and gone. This is the new beginning, the new world order and it sucks. The end for humanity came the moment the U.S. government sent out the infected flu shots. My name is Michael Talbot and this is my journal. I'm writing this because no one's tomorrow is guaranteed, and I have to leave something behind to those who may follow."

So continues Mike's journey. Will he give up all that he is in a desperate bid to save his family and friends? Eliza is coming: can anyone be prepared?

    Story
    "even in times of stress, you can find humor"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, it is not like most zombie apocalypse, books, our protagonist always has snappy comebacks. Having a person like this in your group of survivors, helps to ease the stress with the sarcasm.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mike, the protagonist. His sarcasm hides his compulsion to do what is right. He doesn't want to be singled out, but is willing to lead or follow as is needed.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    He does really well delivering the sarcasm without making it obvious


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    finding out that Tommy had switched to his sister's Eliza's side. But we see a glimmer of hope that Tommy has not deserted Mike and the others

    "Done"

    I know there are 5 more books but l barely got through this one.
    I no longer care to read about Mike and family and friends. The whole story line just got boring to me....sorry.

    "Third time through and it is still awesome!"

    This is one, if not my favorite in the genre.

    Tufo is an amazing author and ties his main characters into different realities.

    "The End has Come and Gone by Mark Tufo"

    I love Mark Tufo. All his books so far have been phinominal.
    I am a huge fan of the zombie genera.
    This book is very well written and read out.
    I look forward to when Mark Tufo comes out with any new book. I jump at the chance to buy it. I love The way Sean Runnette portrays Michael Tallbot. I will miss not hearing any new stories of Michael Talbot.

    Story
    "Fun Series, Bad Narrator for this Genre"
    What did you love best about The End Has Come and Gone?

    Main character's personality is realistic and the interactions between characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Main Character, like the way he thinks.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Runnette?

    Ray Porter from Joe Ledger series. Sean Runnette sounds like he is on Prozac. Seriously, this is a suspense post-apocalyptic story about an ex-Marine fighting for survival and the narrator sounds like the depressed robot from "Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe." A little energy would be nice. The difference between the main character's dialogue and the narrator's depressed, Prozac induced, auditory is huge.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Fun story to forget about life for a while.


    Any additional comments?

    I read Post-Apocalyptic stories so I don't have to think, have to think too much at work and in real life. Just retreat and enjoy a story, nice break while working out or driving. This series is good for that. If you are looking for realism or answers to the worlds problems, this ain't it!

    "Another incredible installment to the series."

    This series has captivated me from the very beginning. From the writing of Tufo to the incredible performance of Mr. Runnette, the edge of your seat suspense and comedic relief continues to keep me obsessed . I cannot wait to start the next book . Mad jack for the win !

    Story
    "OMG... Tommy."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! This series has me totally hooked. Yes the covers look crazy corny, and make me look like the dork that I am when people see it pop up on my phone's lock screen, but DO NOT let the covers turn you off.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's rare that you find a story set in this genre that is still well written/ edited, and has great character development. The dialog can be a bit wordy at times in this particular story, but it you like Tarantino films, you'll live.
    I will comment on the lack of action in this book. This book is really filler for the back story- AND IF YOU READ BOOK 3.5- this book will reference/ reiterate a lot of that. Not to dissuade you from getting 3.5, just know if you skipped it... you'll live.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    If by moved you mean made me say "Awww snap...", then yes, that happened a few times.
