    Story
    "Fiendshly funny!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend to anyone who has been swept up by the zombie movies, books and stories filling the marketplace these past few years. The story is original, though at times your imagination has to be stretched due to another close escape that shouldn't have been possible. Why still read? You WANT them to survive and their luck is all that they have against vampires and zombies. They lose a large asset this time around and things never looked bleaker. The Talbots will survive and do so with humor. Until it's impossible to live any longer of course.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Humorous comments we all can understand and relate to though some can be offensive. Small victories when none seem possible or even likely.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Great narrator. Good pacing and performed wonderfully.


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

    Fear for our heroes/heroines prevails.

    Story
    "3.5 Stars"

    The End: Zombie Fallout, Book 3 begins immediately following the conclusion of A Plague Upon Your Family, which I fully expected. Interestingly much of the first half of the book is told, instead of from Michael Talbot’s point of view, from the point of view of Brendon, Michael’s daughters boyfriend, filling in what he was up to when he ran off in Book 2. We are also given more information on Tommy’s background, which fills in a lot of his mystery. But here it is again, The Walking Dead + Everybody Loves Raymond. I feel like The End: Zombie Fallout, Book 3 doesn’t break any new ground for the series, but does supply me with my ever needed zombie fix mixed in with laughter. I do find it interesting that this book is titled “The End” and the story doesn’t come to an end, I am on the fence about whether or not to purchase The End Has Come and Gone: Zombie Fallout, Book 4 or not. I think I will have to mull it over for a while instead of rushing to Audible.com and buying it instantly.

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    Story
    "It just went on too long"

    There is less rectal humor in this one, so that is a big plus. And a bit less complaining about women, so that is another plus. The story, however, went on too long. It felt like the story should have ended after the battle at Camp Custer since that was the climax of the story, but then it goes on and on and on with dozens more scenes that had no real purpose (i.e. no goal is reached).

    And to top it off, the epilogue goes back into the past where we have to hear about Talbot using drugs (I thought he was a marine?? drug use doesn't really fit that, does it?). The only purpose I can see for this epilogue is so the author can use a short story he wrote about the same characters - because it certainly has nothing to do with these zombie books. Or with character development: we've already seen tons of pages about Mike, so why do we need this unrelated flashback?

    I also don't know why we're subjected to an unrelated thread where we start following Paul's journey... it is tacked on at the end, has no point or resolution and seems to be there to add some pages to this story, and, perhaps, because the author needs these characters 'in place' for book 4? No idea. But really, the last 1/5 of the book was just a let-down with more of the same old, same old and no forward moving points.

    I already have the next book in the series, but that is the last one of these I'll be reading, regardless of how the author drops the ball at the end of the book as his ploy to get you to keep buying (i.e. you will buy the next book to find out why on earth he tacked on 60 pages of junk at the end of this one).

    The narration is the same as the others. I wouldn't recommend reading the books out of order. The is some foul language, no sex, and the violence is mostly non-graphic.

    "Another good listen!"

    Another great continuation of ZF! I swear, there's always at least one story in the epilogue that has me laughing so hard. I can't get enough!

    "So far, so GREAT!"

    Love this series. It moves along at just the right pace. Between fast, action packed battles and humorous introspection, the main character's inner monologue keeps me laughing out loud. Can't wait to get to the next in the series.

    "Even improves upon the The last one in the series"

    Continuing the journey with the Talbots, narrator author imagination in excellence in our ride already bought the next one in the series. Caution though the end has one section at the very end that is more than a little disturbing

    "Wonderful zombie book"

    Just to be clear Shawn is an awesome narrator. Just had one minor criticism. 2 of the (non main) characters had their names pronounced differently than how they where in the first book. But still this is one of my favorite series from audible. Com
