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.

    "Not a Horror Fan, But..."

    I started watching the Walking Dead on TV, and found it extremely compelling. So much so I started looking to see what Zombie books I might find interesting.

    The Zombie Fallout books are really, really good. There are a couple of continuity issues early on that are easily forgivable considering the quality of the characters, the action, suspense, and everything else a good Zombie book should be.

    The narration is also top-notch. The characters all have distinctive voices, in addition to personalities, and it’s very easy to follow.

    The only problem is (as of this writing), it’s not finished!

    Finish it, Mark. I need to know what happens next!

    "Easy to enjoy."

    It is all too easy to get sucked in to these stories. I enjoy relating to Mike- and the characters are well developed enough that I find myself laughing and crying right along with them. Which can be a bit embarrassing, as I listen to these at work.

    "The Funniest Zombie Story Ever Told"
    Where does A Plague Upon Your Family rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have never written a review before although I have enjoyed many of the audio books purchased. But, I had to write this one because I haven't laughed so hard and out loud from an audio book before. I listen to my books in my car and I'm sure that people around me are wondering what is so funny since there isn't anyone else in my car. The narrator is perfect for this series and makes you believe every quirk is real. He is able to successfully change his voice to convince you that you are listening to a new character from the book. If I could recommend this book with ten stars, along with the narrator, I would. I can hardly wait to listen to the next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Besides the lead character, who is absolutely wonderful, I love BT. He is the perfect counter to the lead, Michael Talbot. I love all of Mike's phobias and his perspective on the world and people at large.


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

    I absolutely can't image any other narrator for this book. He is perfect!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are too many to comment on here. But, I love the thoughtfulness that Mike exhibits, even for those who don't warrant it (Mrs. D). I find it moving how Mike feels about all of his friends and family.


    Any additional comments?

    Love, love, love this series and hope it never ends although I know it will. (Sigh)

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

    Sean Runnette is Talbot to me. I really like his voice, and he puts alil extra somethin on/in it, when he reads.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Zombies and a vengeful Vampire......you're Screwed.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Plague Upon Your Family to be better than the print version?

    I truly enjoyed the performance of this audio book


    Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

    BT. Definately BT. I want him to rip some craker heads off.


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes I get annoyed with Talbot's ramblings. Sometimes it takes me out of the book.

    Story
    "The thrill is gone - but ok"

    I loved the humor and dialogue in the first book. In this book, I felt it was stilled and the family interaction was cumbersome.
    The main flaw of how Mark Tufo handled Justine’s situation is very disappointing. Michael’s (Justine's father) knows everyting zombie. Everything you can get from movies and books
    Michael is a devoted family man and goes to extreme circumstances to protect his family.

    Michael can foresee situations in which his family could be in danger and prevent them from harm to an uncanny degree. Yet, he does not see the poison in his family - Justin. He does not put 2 +2 = 4 and see, his son has been infected and keeping his son with the family would potentially infect other family members. Justin’s has loving parents and siblings and no one can see that he is on the strange side.

    Mark Tufo planted a seed of about Justin’s condition in Zombie fallout. Any zombie connoisseur can tell you that if a person has an open wound, which is exposed to zombiev virus - through salvia or a scratch – that person is infected. We know this a work of fiction but there are certain “rules” which define how zombiesim works.

    Come on Tufo, you have established that the Talbort family specifically is being pursued by zombies, get rid of the homing device – Justine. You have Justin channeling the voices of their pursuers and you don’t put a bullet in his head.

    I am disappointed that Tufo has built a series based on such as obvious flaw. Will I listen/read the rest of the series? I do not know. I want to know more about Tommy. But I do not want to follow the Talbort family wagon train with Justin's illness being the precipitating factor in which the family is running from the zombies.
