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?

I really like Zombie books and love Mark Tufo’s writing but this was just too out there for me. This book from the point of view of a zombie that happened to keep some of his self-awareness is kind of disturbing. There is more blood and gore than normal and in a bit too much detail. Seriously, this book is like swimming; don’t eat a half hour before you start reading it. In addition Timothy wasn’t a good person in life so you can just imagine how that goes. Too dark and far down the rabbit hole for my tastes.
As always Sean Runnette does a wonderful job narrating.
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 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.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
If you are a Mark Tufo fan, you most probably already know the fallout zombie series.. In this book its the other way around, you are not listening to the survivors, you are listening to one zombie's experience!!!!! Creepy!!!!!!
I loved the book, it was fantastic, and our friend Mike is there somewhere in the book, but its just too bloody... i got to some points where i felt evil and horror coming out from my headphones, which made me take a break..... Its too bloody!!!!
But even though, you have to get it and read it.
Enjoy!!!! As much as you can..
This book gives a new perspective on what being a zombie would be like. Although it was extremely graphic it was still a fun read. By the way I would not eat food at least an hour before or after reading this book.
I got this because I rather like Tufo's work, but this was overly disgusting, violent, and a bit insulting to females at time because the main character is such a stereotypical jock asshole.
I can get over everything but the fact it's just too short for the price. Save it for when it's on sale, probably for 5 or less, or just download it.
The Raw Humor and disgustingly detailed scenes had me wanting to laugh and vomit all at the same time. This is a great book if you can handle it. Can you handle it? I haven't read/listened to something this raw since I read "The Gas" by Charles Platt. The Narrator is just perfect for this book, and does a smash up job all the way through.
The best character is Timothy, of course. Just the rawness of the character and dialogue with hu-man make this book a keeper.
Mr. Runnette brought life to the characters, and has the perfect voice for this narration.
If I had the time I would have listened to this all at once. I hate to read/listen to a story in drawn out intervals.
If you're into raw humor, and detailed gore this is one for the collection. If you are one of these politically correct folks with no sense of humor. Move away from this book, and run away as fast as you can. Nothing to see here.
