Publisher's Summary

The Talbots are evacuating their home amidst a zombie apocalypse. Mankind is on the edge of extinction as a new dominant, mindless opponent scours the landscape in search of food, which just so happens to be noninfected humans. This book follows the journey of Michael Talbot; his wife Tracy; and their three kids, Nicole, Justin, and Travis. Accompanying them are Brendon, Nicole's fiancé and former Wal-Mart door greeter, and Tommy, who may be more than he seems. Together they struggle against a ruthless, relentless enemy that has singled them out above all others.

The Talbots have escaped Little Turtle, but to what end? For, on the run, they find themselves encountering a far vaster evil than the one that has already beset them. As they travel across the war-torn countryside they soon learn that there are more than just zombies to be fearful of: With law and order a long-distant memory, some humans have decided to take any and all matters into their own hands. Can the Talbots come through unscathed, or will they suffer the fate of so many countless millions before them?

It's not just brains versus brain-eaters anymore. And the stakes may be higher than merely life and death, with eternal souls on the line.

    "Fun and enjoyable story"

    The writer is very good with describing visuals and scents. Nauseatingly good. I also enjoyed the main character's sense of humor and sarcasm.

    "So slow"

    The story just had a lot of unnecessary details, and turns into side stories that had nothing to do with the main plot.

    "Done with the sarcasm at deaths doorstep"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    9 year olds who enjoy fart humor every 10 minutes


    What was most disappointing about Mark Tufo’s story?

    Relentless, unfunny sarcastic "humor" About 30 fart jokes and I'm only an hour in.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sean Runnette’s performances?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Idk


    Any additional comments?

    Unbelievably ridiculous, relentless sarcasm in the face of death in an apocalyptic world. I could not believe how many fart jokes. And I'm only an hour in. I finish everything no matter how bad but I don't know about this one. Book 1 was annoying but descent but I was thinking it had to get better and it got worse. If one second after and the stand are at the top of this genre, this book is absolutely at the bottom. If you've read every apocalyptic book made, and are desperate for just one more, DONT BOTHER WITH THIS AUDIO BOOK!!!!!!!

    Story
    "Mike Talbot reminds me of Indiana Jones"
    What made the experience of listening to A Plague Upon Your Family the most enjoyable?

    I would have to say the humor. I try to add dry humor in my writings, but Mark Tufo takes it to a whole different level. Mike Talbot reminds me of Harrison Ford in Indian Jones. The "Barely Hero" where just when he thinks he has the upper hand, something goes wrong.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't. However, I will say his voice is not exactly how I see this character sound. He sounds more like a comedic actor than a veteran and prepper. That being said, it still works in its own way.


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

    I will be honest, the background stories turned me off a little. It didn't put a stop to the story, really, but made me think "hurry up with it".


    Any additional comments?

    I love both writing and reading in the zombie genre, and Mark Tufo has a great spin with the Vampire villain. Sometimes it's hard to see where the story is going with the supernatural twists, but it is still engaging. While I enjoy the classic Romero zombie, I love to see small spins on the flesh eaters, and Mark does this with adding his own little variation.

    "Pretty Good...."

    This 2nd installment is better then the first, I realize this series is like a train it gains momentum slowly. .. The first book I thought was a C- !! I have to say this is a C+!! This book is a definite improvement, it's funny, and has alot of jokes and sarcasm but it has its moments! The reader sounds like a hit over the head Ray Ramono, he does a decent job with the read I wish they would had picked someone who is really good and had experience. Anyways I'm going to buy the 3rd because he has me curious now as to what is happening , The walking dead novels still rule!!!!!!!!!!

    "I really wanted to like it"
    Would you try another book from Mark Tufo and/or Sean Runnette?

    This series is loosing me. The author spends way too much time talking about super mundane details like how the main character needs to fart or go to the bathroom. There is not enough action to keep me engaged. It is very rare that I will stop listening to a book half way through but I just can't get myself to keep listening.
