"What now, sister?" Tomas asked.
"We kill Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends and then we rule the world," she said absently as she fingered the locket around her neck."

Wow, Action, Suspenseful
Mike..........Why, he's your everyday guy
He really brings the characters to life, and the way he does B.T. aka Big Tiny aka Lawrence......Absolutely Classic
Can't wait for book six!!!!!!!
Love reading books and listening to books. God bless the written word!
The narrator has his character down by now in the series. The story was a roller coaster. I had no idea how it was all going to end.
Micheal is the best. Over the course of the books he is human, he is every man, he flawed but he loves his friends and family. He get through what he has to and still can have a sense of humor that makes the hard points soften. But he is someone who can get behind and cheer for.
Ummmm...not favorite but I will never forget. Paul and the abandoned house. Really well done. But yeah I can't more. It's in my head forever!
I was a little upset at end. I really need another book. I don't know if this is it for the series. I don't want to give anything away. I understand the ending but I would like more.
Mark Tufo best zombie book series next to Rhiannon Frater. Money, time, imagination and emotions well spent. Loved it. Getting everyone I know into him.
At first I thought the sarcastic humour was going to get to me. It didn't take long however to warm to it and make Mike's character the best in the story. I often listen to these audio books in the car. A few times I actually laughed out loud at some of the things Talbot said. God know what the people driving by thought when they saw me? This has by far been the best story I have listened to thus far.
The strong friendship that developed between Mike and BT
The scene on the roof top where Mike ends up fighting Durgan
Looks like the paranoid survival nuts had it right.
Please write more. This story is far from finished.
This volume focuses too much on history and very little on present. Presentation is great as it has been throughout the series.
Love a Good Audio, and a Great Flip Flop.
Thrilling, Funny, Nail Bitting.
Learning Mrs. Denows real name and the reaction by BT I could see myself saying the same thing. Without spoiling too much for others when Mike learns of his special powers. That was pretty freaking funny in the way he decribes it.
OMG, Sean Runnette is the BEST ever! I mean seriously he IS MIke Talbot. No doubt, and not just Mike, he can do Tracy, BT and all of the other characters without me ever thinking that it is the same person. He is amazing. Heck I think he could even do Henry if he wanted to and pull it off!
Finding the children in the convience store. The scene was written so well that I thought of all the places they have been there was no way that ANOTHER place could be described so well, but this book and the reader does not dissapoint!
I truly love this series and it is much more then just a typical Zombie story it has more of a meaning. Download it and you will see.
" I have my mind... & a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge." -T.L.
Considering that there are about 2 bazillion zombie or zombie like novels (viralistic humans, cannaibal humans, etc...) the 'Zombie Fallout' books is probably the best in my opinion but regardless I think the series should have been a trilogy... Not everyone likes Mike Talbots sense of humor & I'm still confused after all these books what kind of powers, the properties of the infected, & so many other questions regarding books like these... I really lost my sense of any continuity when all of a sudden Mike is a half vampire & the whole chase has devolved into a Benny Hill chase, I can almost here the music..
The 1st three books are good & there are parts of 4,5, & 6 that are worth reading but not enuff to write 3 complete books... I enjoyed Mike Talbots adventures on Indian Hill & outer space... these zombie boks are just draggin on & on.... even Sean who is a great Narrator cannot save this series.
I can see those who love these books & read the whole series & hoping for more, but I'm not one of them....
The scene with the cats was by far, one of the most disgusting and horrific chapters of this whole series. It was so intense I had to listen to it twice!! I absolutely loved it!!!!
I almost passed this book by after reading the other reviews, I am very grateful I didn't. Yes there were a few flashbacks that were pretty detailed and long winded but the minimal annoyance of those chapters was worth the revelations and character growth of this story.
Not to mention that frig'n cat scene, I will remember it for years! If you enjoy this series don't skip this one!!!
ZF5 continues the steady entertainment the Zombie Fallout series has provided. It hasn't jumped above the rest or fallen below the rest - the entire series is consistently good!
It's a solid pace that isn't afraid to get a little wild in its plot devices to keep things interesting and entertaining. Through the curves and twists, no matter what, you won't be putting this story down.
Mike Talbot - he just instills a perfect mix of humanity, levity, and gravity to this character.
You can sleep when you're dead.
The only drawback/reservation I have is the voice acting for the character Paul. Paul slips in and out of a Southie accent as the story telling goes on after book 1, and it's most prevalent in this book. It always throws me off that Paul and Mike grew up together, but Paul is the only one with the accent. It seems to grow more and more prevalent the more the narrator uses the character, as opposed to anything in the story that would prompt it. It draws me out of the story a bit - I'd rather have Paul never pick up the accent.But that's a relatively small gripe compared to the awesome way Sean Runnette manages the rest of the story telling. He slips very seamlessly between the rest of the characters and it's extremely engaging. ZF6 is out, but I'll be waiting for the audiobook version before I get into it!
Yes. Love the humor
All of them The interaction between the characters is wonderful.
Yes. Hated to have to put it down.
I've read the reviews that say skip this one and wait for #6. I don't agree. Well worth the credit. Looking forward to #6
Yes, Yes, Yes. Reason - Mike Talbot - nuff said.
Family and Friendship. In the end that's all there is.
Too many to count.
