"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."

In the latest installment of Mark Tufo's zombie fallout series, Mike Talbot and his family continue their fight for survival as Eliza plots their demise.

    Story
    "Author as writing attention deficit disorder"
    What disappointed you about Zombie Fallout 5?

    Disappointing listening to the hours of flashback stories that have nothing to do with the current plot. I have no idea how a 10+ hour book only covered about 1 day in real time in the story. I kept thinking the stories would get better with each book and I kept reading them because I was invested. But don't make my mistake. Stop after the first book or don't get started at all.


    What could Mark Tufo have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have more plot covered in the books. Don't dwell for hours talking about the main character's idiosyncrasies. Have a really robust storyline where things actually happen. I get tired of the monotony of nothing happening in the plot.


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

    Reading performance is good. But this can't make up for a poor book.


    What character would you cut from Zombie Fallout 5?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    Moving on back to tried and trusted authors ...

    "TOFU HAS IT RIGHT, AGAIN"
    What made the experience of listening to Zombie Fallout 5 the most enjoyable?

    As always, Mark Tufo's cutting sense humor is bang on. Micheal Talbot is one character
    that is near and dear to the Zombie Fallout series. His laugh out loud and, at times, terrifically sarcastic sense of humor, helps round out the Micheal Talbot character. I am a
    hugh zombie literature fan, and Mark Tufo had the guts to write a series of books that are not total doom and gloom from cover to cover. We see the good, the bad, the ugly, and the
    funny as the Talbot clan struggles to survive. There may be more flashbacks in ZF#5 but,
    they only serve to add to the total Talbot clan character development. It is why so many of us listeners love Mark Tufo's wonderful creation of the entire Talbot clan. I know I will never lose my appreciation for Tufo's Z.F. series.

    "BEST Zombie/Vamp Series EVER"
    Would you listen to Zombie Fallout 5 again? Why?

    I already have twice


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

    Let me put it this way Mark Tufo's writing is awesome, he adds whit sarcasm and honesty to his characters,


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Sean Runnette IS Mike Talbot, hands down. He brings Mike to life. I can not think of ANY other person playing Mike. He is perfect.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!!! & I have with 2 of the books in the Series!


    Any additional comments?

    I ****NEED*** BOOK 6 PLEASE!!!!!

    "Series Ends Poorly"

    With the first book, I had to get over the narator sounding like a comedian. I was glad I did, the story was worth sticking with. I eagerly listened to the next three books in the series.

    Book five was good until it ended abruptly as if the author was just tired of the series. To many strings left untied, too few answers, too few conclusions. You are left with "huh, what happened."

    I now wish I had not started the series in the first place.

    "Good book great series"

    This book is as good as the others. Great story but gets a little far out there.I found the humor to be on the money for the situation and the narrater convays the sarcasm or the author very well. My only complaint would be that the sixth instalment is not availible yet

    "great conversation. Funny at all the right times"
    What did you love best about Zombie Fallout 5?

    Oh the Character development is fantastic.


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

    I never laughed harder than reading the conversations between the man in the aluminum foil hat and Mike Talbot. It was one long laugh out loud conversation. And the outfit.


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

    frustration and concern. But to be honest this is such a good book that it would be hard for anyone to mess it up.


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

    Realistic reactions.


    Any additional comments?

    I went so far after reading book six to email the author to encourage him to write book 7. Love the series. Read it all and now we have started on the audibles.

    "OUTSTANDING! Keep them coming Mark Tufo."

    I've written a review for each volume in this series and found myself wanting it to be over in the last book. (Volume 4). I've completely changed my mind and say "keep them coming".

    Zombie Falllout 5: Alive in a Dead World finds us deep into an ever-evolving story of the Talbot family in a desperately dead landscape of what is only remotely the United States. Go into this book with the understanding that it is, in all respects, the darkest journey to date. Without giving up any spoilers, expect to lose some of the good travelers that have survived with Mike Talbot to date, and some that should have died long ago manage to stick around.

    Huge praise again to Sean Runnette for "becoming" Michael Talbot, for bring this alternately bumbling, alternately super-cool father, friend, ex-Marine to life. Mike has endured and survived the most unimaginable horrors and against all odds, remains standing.

    Some have indicated disdain for long winded back-stories about Paul and Mike but they are brilliant. The beauty of this series is that it's never been anyone else's vision of zombie genre. It's uniquely different and getting to spend time with Mike Talbot as college prankster extraordinaire or hanging out with him stoned of his mind at a rock concert with his best friends, these are great stories. It pulls you out of the darkness for a while, gives the reader (listener) and chance to breathe and laugh out loud before plunging us back into the gruesome darkness.

    Mike Talbot is every man. He's you and I at the shopping mall just days before Christmas. He's germophoboic., he's sarcastic, funny, insecure and deadly courageous. He remains consistent throughout this brilliant series and he's as kind and hilarious to the very end. But at Volume 5, it's still a white-knuckle ride and if Mark Tufo keeps it going at this level of inventiveness, that's fine with me.
