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?

The after dinner mint comment and the gas.
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 ain't your momma's Bozo the Clown!
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!!!
First book, Ray Bradbury collection of short stories. First series, Dune. Favorite series, Thomas Covenent
Yes. Love all Tufo books but did this reveal a very dark side of this author?
Never should have written it.
Perfect for Tufo books.
Vulgarity in the extreme. I live horror but no other author I have read goes this far. I had to stop listening and I am no prude. Tufo, what were you thinking. Where did all the crap come from.
It was nothing like what I was expecting. I have been on a Zombie Apocalypse kick here lately and this book was nothing like what I've been reading or listening to.
I have nothing to compare it to literature-wise but I would compare it to the movie "Zombieland" in the fact that it's equal parts scary & funny.
Timothy, of course!
Again, Timothy. How can you forget a huge, hulking, cannibal killer clown with a sick twisted sense of humor?
I love Mark Tufo books and even better is having Sean Runnette read them (incredible narrator) I just found Timothy to be a bit to much. It has its funny moments but the part about the poor kid getting killed in the woods was just too much for me.
Everyone has to have that "Thing They Love!" This is how I find and keep up with mine!
YES!! Sean Runnette is a master of conversion! He transforms EACH individual into someone you could believe in!
Well I would kind of compare it to the IT book by Stephen King.. Cept I would say Timothy is SCARIER!
Runnette's alway's on Point he never disappoints.
Not Just Clowning Around - A Zombies tale ( I don't know… Timothy was better I think)
Say something about yourself!
What I loved best about "Timothy" is Timothy himself. He is evidently the product of the mind of Mark Tufo. Tufo's never seems to worry about making his characters perfect people. He lets them be whoever time and circumstances have evolved them to be. He does allow for growth in his characters but sometimes that grow is not along a nice plane but toward even greater darkness. I loved that Timothy was able to see that darkness in himself and not pretend to be what he was not. *** SPOILER ALERT ***
When you are the size of an NFL offensive lineman with a two to three person an hour appetite (which he prefers fresh and with blood still pumping through their veins) who voids his stool where he stands without even removing his clown pants, it's hard to pretend that you are a good candidate for scout troop leader.
Why, Timothy, of course. In this story most other people are meals or soon to be meals with only sufficient character development to make their devouring only tastier, literally and figuratively. My second and third favorite characters only make a very brief cameo but they make this even more "Tufo-ish." *** SPOILER ALERT ***
They are Mike Talbot and B.T. You can never have enough of those guys.
Sean is the voice of Mark Tufo as far as I am concerned. He knows how to voice the various forms of humor that Mark brings to the table from the ironic to the sophomoric.
Yes. The last five minutes of the book moved me most. First, I was saddened when I realized that it was the end of the book in what seemed to come far too fast for me. *** SPOILER ALERT ***
Secondly, I felt that what I loved most about the book was going to be irrevocably snatched from me.
I'm glad that Mark Tufo has a penchant for series. That means more goodies to come in this universe.
Absolutely, but only if they had a sick and twisted mind like mine. Not only did this story give me nightmares, but NOW I have a WHOLE 'nother reason to be terrified of clowns!!! It's a MUST Read if you Love the dynamic "Tufo-Runnette" Duo....
I have listened to Almost ALL of them, and they ALWAYS leave me chomping at the bit for the next edition to the series...Without a doubt Mark Tufo writes Amazing stories, but Sean Runnette really brings these morbidly insane, but ultimately human characters to Life with the most Sarcastic, Jaded, and absolutely realistic story telling skills, that would make anyone listening to this story with "weak constitutions" Gag and squirm uncomfomfortably in their seats....I also LOVE how Tufo somehow overlaps and entwines his characters from one set of a series that you don't think are related to another. It's like they're all One Big Screwed up, Insane, and sick twisted Family!!!!
I'd hate to give any spoilers...Let's just say my least favorite (had me gagging and wretching) were the descriptions of relieving himself..Really?? Had to go so "deep into the bowels of hell" Mark??
Probably his Dad, before he...wait, no spoilers. I'd love to know how this "man" became so sinister and jaded about women so early in life. But then again, I would probably just end up bashing his head in with a can of beer after a few minutes of listening to his bravado...LOL
Great Book to fill time while your waiting for more Zombie Fallout, and my new count down, the Lycan Fallout series...How does he put so many books out so quickly. Oh yea, he probably doesn't sleep with all of those nightmares wandering around inside his head, and now neither can I now that they have been unleashed into the world....Good luck ever enjoying a circus or children's party with a clown present, EVER, EVER Again!!!!!!!
Mark tofu strikes in his sickest demented book yet... I was wanting more after his fallout series but didn't see this coming wow. Bad good I cannot decide
Well when he craps his clown pants and then begins to chase someone full sprint and the author describes it so sickeningly well. Thats a TAME part. Is that good or bad?
Is it good or bad. Personally I cannot decide. That's why it has one and five stars. You better be a veteran zombie reader before even considering this book. Seriously.
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
Ummmm no. I bought it on sale, otherwise I wouldn't have read it.
Very well narrated
You will puke.
Short, creepy and extremely twisted. I hated that I liked it because it was way too disgusting!
There's so much I would change. Being a fan of the genre, I expect some gore and violence. What I didn't anticipate was the suggestions of rape, violence towards children, the little boy was already dead so smashing his head against the dashboard was a bit much. I was very excited to get this as I've heard such wonderful things about it and am very disappointed.
I feel the narrator was pleasant considering his source material.
Not only would I not see this if it were a movie, but I would strongly urge my friends to not spend their money as well.
As I previously stated, with anything related to zombies there should be an expectation of violence and gore, however this was beyond the pale. I'm very disappointed in this book and I'm glad I got it on sale. I would be every upset if I had spent a credit or more than $3 on it.
