    Story
    "Too Dark and Sick for me"

    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.

    Story
    "Why the hell not"

    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.

    Story
    "A beautifully digusting descent into darkness"
    What did you love best about Timothy?

    The richness of the writing and the developement of the story. The tie in to Marks other books was fun.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the HughMann


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    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


    If you could take any character from Timothy out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Mike Talbot. He doesn't scare me like all the others.


    Any additional comments?

    Mark Tufo scores again!

    Story
    "GORE Alert!! NOT FOR THE WEAK OF STOMACH OR MIND"
    What did you love best about Timothy?

    The reality Behind the level of insanity which Timothy is driven to by the infection


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Timothy?

    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!


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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!,


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me wonder if in Timothy's shoes if I could have contained my sanity? What if anything I could have done differently!


    Any additional comments?

    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,,

    Story
    "Pennywise doesn't come close"
    What did you love best about Timothy?

    The way Mark Tufo uses every sense to give his readers a true account of what this charecter's life is like.


    What other book might you compare Timothy to and why?

    The Zombie Fallout series, same author.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    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.


    If you could take any character from Timothy out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would like Anna, the Nun. Dinner however would be slightly different than one might think.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Bloody Bloody Bloody!!!!!!!!"

    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..

    Sad I've listened to all of Mark Tufo's books I love all his books. I don't find the Atlantis series quite as good but love the hippie!

    Timothy just excepts his depravity. No one is safe around him, famly,children, animals, or even in his own mind...


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Sean really captures the way Timothy sounds in my own mind..


    Who was the most memorable character of Timothy and why?

    Timothy of course, besides having daddy issues and mental problems, Timothy has some pretty funny banter.. I a sick kind of way....
