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.

"Mark Tufo has written the first zombie series that kept me up reading all night." (John Ramsey Miller, author of The Last Family)
Exciting, sarcastic, addictive
I've not read anything as good as this 6 part series. I love the dark humour and the friendships Mike Talbot makes along the way..
I've now read All the Zombie Fallout books and STRONGLY recommend anyone to purchase the rest of the series PLUS I also read Dr Hugh Mann 3.5 which is not essential but I'm so glad I did read it. It helps tie up a few threads in the following books.
Absolutely!! I buy audiobooks to help pass the time while I'm on the road but with Mark Tufo & Sean Runnette's team work I am finding I'm listening to it when I get home too!
I just wish there were more to come than the 7 books. I pictured Ray Romano built like an ex marine when I first started listening to this fabulous series..
Amazingly great story!
Stephen Kings The Stand. The whole end of the world and how people deal with it, both are well written and infused with humor in the face of a horrible situation.
Mr. Runnette has me picturing Mike perfectly. This series is my first experience at "listening " to a book and I find myself very much relating Sean R's voice with Mr. Talbots personality. Perfect choice of narrators.
One family's struggle for survival amidst an plague of epic proportions led by an army of the undead. Or something along those lines. ZOMBIES ZOMBIES ZOMBIES works too!
2 down 4 to go. ZombieFallout is my new favorite series!
After listening to the first Zombie Fallout book I was already hooked. With the second book my love for this series grows.
The characters have become like old friends already and Sean Runnette continues to bring the story to life and make this a memorable and enjoyable listen.
Definately! I love every book in this series. I listened to them on my way to and from work every day and as soon as one book was finished I continued with the next in the series. It was like a movie. The narrater is good with different voices and I feel attached to most all of the main characters.
It just never stops
Either Mike or BT
Never have time to listen all in one sitting but listened to and from work every day until series was complete
Entertaining, keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I really do like Mike.
I can't imagine any other voice telling the story! It's a perfect fit.
I love mark tufos writing style. His humor and pacing are very well done. He has strong characters with very individual personalities that make you care about them.
I love Mike. I love his mix of weaknesses and strangth.
Yes and I did
Great series of books
I LOVE all of the Zombie Fallout books. It would be hard for me to choose a favorite one, similar to choosing which is the favorite child.
This second installment takes the Talbot clan on the run, meeting some good- and some not so good people along the way. Tufo gives a little glimpse of reality of how survivors in any disaster would act. Not everyone would be neighborly and helpful.
Eliza is at work souping up the zombies a bit, along with a few other suprises up her sleeve to keep things interesting.
I enjoy the little side jaunts too, I think it builds a stronger main character. You really get some insight of where Talbot is coming from when you hear how a situation in the past played out.
Definately Talbot. I would love to hang out with him and have a beer. He shares my love of sarcasm.. and dogs. Coming in second would be a tie between BT (the huge teddy bear of a man) and Henry (because I have a soft spot in my heart for gassy canines)
Runnette gives the story some definate emotion. He separates characters with small voice changes and brings them to life. Before the last book was out on Audible, I read it and had Sean's voice in my mind the entire time.
A card carrying germaphobe saves his loved ones from the zombie plague!
I have read some comments saying people do not like the 'journal' style of the book, calling it lazy. I completely disagree. The way these books are written gives more of a feel of the author relaying the events directly to you- the listener. Makes it much more personable in my opinion.
The mixture of true zombie horror, and unexpected humour that keeps you saying to yourself one more chapter before I put it down.
The only other books I could compare it to would be other title from Mark Tufo. But even then it cant really because it is so unique.
Even though his female voice is very much a like to his male voices, it somehow easy to tell which character is talking by the slight changes in his voice
Yes extremely hard to stop. Even made me late for work once. It was worth it.
An addictive story
Michael Talbot. Just a character that's easy to relate to.
Tommy. Just loveable.
Okay, this book threw me a little. No spoiler just a twist on the genre that made me question whether or not to continue on in the series, but, I will admit, I like Michael Talbot and feel he's such a character. He'd be the one who I would want to be with in the zombie apocalypse. The thing about the book and this main character is that you see him tested time and time again, and he makes decisions and -- Mark Tufo does a good job with this -- explaining the logic behind it. The backdrop for the decisions, too, make me question mt moral comfort and what I might do in a stressful/life or death situation. All in all, I found myself reflecting on what I would do, and I became comfortable in relying on Michael Talbot. Other zombie apocalypse books did not bring their readers into the story and allow us to reflect on our own choices. All in all, it was a great read. As the series progresses, I can happily say that I am a Fallout addict. Truly enjoyable, but start from book 1!
I have listened to several zombie books that I thought were very good until I got the Fallout series. Amazing story telling.
The only books I can compare to this is the other books in the series. There are no other books in the genre as original as these.
Sean's voices are the voices you would expect the characters to sound like if you read the book yourself.
This book caused me to gain a few pounds since I spent all of my time listening to the book instead of going to the gym.
I've never been addicted to a book series like this before.
