Timothy was not a good man in life and being undead did little to improve his disposition. What will a man trapped in his own mind do to survive when he wakes up to find himself a zombie controlled by a self-aware virus?

This book is straight to the point no fluff. I love it. It was an amazing spin on the zombie genre. There is a lot of foul language and adult activity so if you have child like ears this isn't for you.
First read from this author I think I will check a few other books out.
This story has an yech factor of about 1000 and I am not kidding! Some of the words to described what happened after a zombie chows down really made be feel bad for Sean Runnette the narrator. But true to form, he continued on with the excellent work he did with the zombie series with the Talbots. I had the distinct impression that Mark Tufo was reliving his (and probably alot of male) youth's love of all things icky in some of the descriptions what happens following the injesting of a big meal of Mexican barritos and so on.
I really liked the Talbot series once i got into it but this story was a bit of a challenge to keep my interest and although i liked the way the story referred to Talbot series. I think its a good idea its a relatively short story; anything longer wouldn't have been worth the time.
Thank you for reading my review, i hope it helps.

Mark Tufo's ability of describing gore. Timothy has gore in abundance with a little humor tossed in.
What's not to like? He's genius!

This book was disgusting and disturbing on so many levels and I say that as a compliment. What shitty luck for Timothy that he has the weekend gig that he does!! Oh, and let me just say this...there is NOTHING funnier than a fart and I laughed my ass off at that part!!!
This book being short, but so Tufo - Tufo is now one of my favorite authors ever - Love the story and how he ties everything together with MIke Talbot in the end :) 10 thumbs up!
Just a dude
The richness of the writing and the developement of the story. The tie in to Marks other books was fun.
What isn't there to like about Seans work? He makes these stories come to life and walk around in your brain when they die
Mike Talbot. He doesn't scare me like all the others.
Mark Tufo scores again!
I'm a horror nut! Zombies in particular! Epidemics, end of all things! Also enjoyed Game of thrones very much!
The reality Behind the level of insanity which Timothy is driven to by the infection
No spoilers here!, so let me just say that The way this story was written from the insane mind of a man trapped inside his body now controlled by the hungers of the Zombie he has become as if he just got into the backseat and was forced to enjoy the ride is something new to me and as grossed out as I was at moments I believe the story couldn't have been told any other way! It was the gore and the wording used that makes you almost understand how Timothy must have felt as he gulped down still warm intestines from the stomach of his still alive pleading family member all the while being unable to stop himself from enjoying every moment of it!
Giving Timothy the personality he did in his reading. I can imagine some of this may have had him having to retread certain parts and think to himself "seriously..? That is completely disgusting!" but despite any of that he did a stellar job putting the needed feeling behind the character that some readers may have not been able to capture!, well done!,
Made me wonder if in Timothy's shoes if I could have contained my sanity? What if anything I could have done differently!
The human spirits drive to survive is tested beyond anything the average sane person has ever imagined but true to form humans are survivors and what we will do to go on living is taken to new levels in this book and that's a understatement!, BEWARE IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH THINK TWICE BEFORE GOING FORWARD WITH THIS BOOK AS ITS NOT FOR THE WEAK STOMACHED,,

The way Mark Tufo uses every sense to give his readers a true account of what this charecter's life is like.
The Zombie Fallout series, same author.
He became the charecter doing it so that it not only sounded true, but the listener can feel the anguish and pschosis of the charecter.
I would like Anna, the Nun. Dinner however would be slightly different than one might think.
Its an amazing thing to put yourself in the shoes of another person when you write, but to true become that character and graphically experience everything through their senses is something only a true artist can share with their audience. Great job Mark, and again thank you Dean for introducing me to his work.
Mark Tufo, author of the Indian Hill series, Zombie Fallout series, Lycan Fallout series and other wicked books gives us a different perspective of the zombie apocalypse. We get the Zombie Experience, not to be confused with the Girlfriend Experience. We have Zombies, Clowns, nuns and even a cameo or two.
This is definitely worth picking up. Can't wait for the next one.

if your used to Zombie Fallout and Lycan Fallout this is NOT that kinda read! much higher in the gore score and graphic violence. In fact if your familiar with Mike Talbot I was wincing as Sean read this book for him just wondering if he was suffering vicariously. lol.
