    "Death by cats??? Really, Mark Tufo???"
    Would you try another book from Mark Tufo and/or Sean Runnette?

    Yes - hopefully he will be back on track in the next book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Tufo again?

    Yes.


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

    Still a well written story with a lot of humor. Too bad it is filled with unnescessary sidetracks that seem like stalling.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a fan of the series, and I will continue listening to the end - but I hope there is something better in store for me in the next book.

    I particularly find the part with the murderous cats really, really weird - and even if I buy the idea of zombies and evildoers in general it just seems too much that cats should be attacking humans - especially if they have been preying on their own kind....would they still be hungry???

    "best of the series so far"

    Mark Tufo's writing style draws you in and hooks you from the start.The characters are 'real', aside from the zombies of course, and I think that's what sets his stories apart from the rest. He has created a relatable set of characters that will make you laugh, gag and sometimes cry.

    "Love the Zombie Fallout series, but not this book."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I feel like the author was just trying to reach his word count when writing this book. It seems filled with a lot of useless banter. Most of the book takes place in the same area and is just redundant. I actually feel like the series could have done without this book. They are running from zombies, they hide, they run, they hide, they run, they hide, they run. Nothing really major happens. The important parts from this book could have been included in the previous or following book.Overall, Zombie Fallout 5: Alive in a Dead World, was a huge let down. I really enjoy this series, but there's some animal cruelty that the book could do without. I was tempted to stop listening because it was getting really disgusting. I get it, Mark Tufo hates cats. I hope he comes back in the next life as a mouse. :P


    What character would you cut from Zombie Fallout 5?

    Leave out the parts with the cat killing. It's part of nature, they are hunters. Dogs would do the same if left starving for weeks without a food source.

    "Side tracked"
    If you could sum up Zombie Fallout 5 in three words, what would they be?

    Side tracked


    If you’ve listened to books by Mark Tufo before, how does this one compare?

    To many side stories. Don't know if he was trying to build up his characters or just filling pages.


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

    Great job, just like the other books in the series.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Hopefully he will get back on track in the next book.

    "Jumping the Shark"
    What did you like best about Zombie Fallout 5? What did you like least?

    This is first review I have done.

    Couple of things.

    This is first review I have done.

    Sean Runnette does a great reading and truly in the world of audio books he is amazing.

    I love Mark Tufo and all the other Zombie Fall Out books. This one really was not what I would have liked. It was very unfocused. It gives you tons of back story, that I wouldnt consider mission critical. The vignettes are pretty pointless after a while, and while amusing they get boring.

    The other books in the series are far superior. I feel like Mark might have been bored with Talbot while writing this book.

    The other thing that I was crazy about is when authors are self referential. Stephen King does it andI didnt like it. Tufo does it and I didn't like it. While its his prerogative, for someone who really enjoys his work I feel it takes me out of the story.


    Has Zombie Fallout 5 turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


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

    Sean is always great.


    Could you see Zombie Fallout 5 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    All of the Zombie Fallout books could be a movie. Except this one. It doesnt have the legs the rest of the books do.


    Any additional comments?

    The only reason to listen to this book is complete the series.

    Turn ons??? 1) Obedience 2) Respect 3) Learning to please Master. Master does not do turn offs. He guides and trains His little stooges past what does not please Master.

    "The story lost some of it's momentum w/ this book"
    If you could sum up Zombie Fallout 5 in three words, what would they be?

    slow at times


    Would you recommend Zombie Fallout 5 to your friends? Why or why not?

    yea, I've already recommended it.


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

    Michael is my favorite character but BT is a close runner up. And as much as I want to hate her, I love Mrs. Deneaux.


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

    Laughed my ass off in places

    "Great series, great book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Zombie Fallout 5 to be better than the print version?

    The narrator is the best I've heard on a book.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. I wish it would never end. Great zombie horror with spots of comedic relief. The narrator is the best!

    Story
    "First time I have prayed for a hail Mary"
    What did you love best about Zombie Fallout 5?

    Mark has continued to make the human element the real story. From the love of a mother for her children, to friends, and brothers. He does well at showing how different people react to this new world they are in. I think the world he shows is honest. There will always be people who put their needs above others, people who give up, people who get by on the luck of finding the right people to hang with, and god willing people who try to do the right thing no matter what. Mike shows that the world may be crashing down around you, but you can still do the right thing not only for your friends and family but also for the people you come into contact with. He also made me want to call my nephew up and go over and play with his legos.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zombie Fallout 5?

    I will not say the moment but this is the first book I have ever praid for a hail mary. I normally hate when authors take an easy way. They want a catalist in thier book so they do something and then have to give the characters a hail mary to bring the story where they want. Example of this would be killing a character off and then cloning them to be the exact same person. It is a cheat, and normally takes away from the story for me.

    Having said all of that Mark has made some of these characters so real for me that when something happened to one of my favorites I started wishing and hoping for the proverbial hail mary. Mark could have done anything he wanted to save this person and I would have just rolled along with it because I was wishing with all of my heart he survived.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    He did a fantastic job as usual. I would deffiently be willing to listen to more books he has narrated


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

    Yes I wanted someone to blow the head off of one of the companions. As you listen to this book I am sure you will be able to figure out which one it is. I also cried like a little girl while laughing and have no qualms about saying that.

    Mark has come up with new and interesting/disgustingly disturbing ways to torture the survivors. You may never look at your own life the same way again

    "A Little Long Winded"

    I am still loving this series and I really don't want it to end, however some of the stories in this book are a bit long winded.

    I do enjoy hearing the ramblings that go on in the head of the main character, Michael Talbot, but a few of the "looks back" into his life felt a bit out of place and drawn out.

    Nevertheless, I can't wait to move on the Book 6. Marc Tufo writes a great story and these minor criticisms don't change that.
