Publisher's Summary

"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.

    "this review is for book 1-5 (got 1-4 on diff app)"
    Where does Zombie Fallout 5 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Zombie fallout is ranked according to the book series. book one is ranked one book two is ranked two and so on.


    What did you like best about this story?

    what I like best is that it felt real. every character had a pulse (except Tomas and Eliza but not for lack of trying) every drop of blood had weight and every step had a purpose. I was hooked When some a**hole licked his peep hole and I'm sure you will be too.


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

    Michael Talbot of course but BT was nipping at his heels followed by Henry.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Out of book 1 through 5 I believe Paul's death was the most moving. RIP Paul.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved book 1-5. the Zombie Fallout series is by far one of the best. If you haven't listened to them yet you should check em out. I can't understand why anybody would give them a bad review obviously they're not really listening to them either that or they're just retarded.

    "Done with the series"

    I enjoyed the first couple of books in the series, I really did. I thought Mike's neuroses were great fun and the whole Talbot family is crazy but in a good way although I've never taken a liking to his wife Tracy who strikes me as a somewhat violent (she repeatedly smacks her husband around and I'm sorry but no one should be smacking their partner around regardless of their gender), unfair (she always seems to blame her husband for dragging her sons into danger even though he does that in an effort to save others and it's not like he's forcing his sons against their will) and rather cold (she worries more about her sons than her husband more often than not, practically hating him and displaying a complete disregard for his well-being which make her infrequent displays of affection towards him all the more glaring).

    I also find the Talbot banter, constant witticism and joking behaviour/conversations to be rather tiresome at this point in the series. I mean seriously, would people who find themselves living in a zombie apocalypse and in constant perilous situations find the time to joke around and make cracks at each other's expense on a continuous basis? This wasn't so much of an issue in the earlier books as their predicaments weren't nearly as dire and hadn't been going on for as long but I just find it hard to believe this far into the series.

    Furthermore some of the more prominent characters such as BT feel under-developed and somewhat stereotypical: BT is seemingly the only African-American to have survived the zombie apocalypse and of course he's this huge and incredibly strong guy who appears to have no interest or sense of self beyond the Talbot family.

    There are other issues that others have mentioned here and put all together have cemented my decision in ending my listening of this series. I was really hoping to be able to stick it out for Lycan Fallout: Rise of the Werewolf as I love all things werewolf but I simply can't.

    "Good listen. Not the best but fun and worth it"
    What did you love best about Zombie Fallout 5?

    I've read or listened to the entire Zombie Fallout series so far. It's fast paced and great for mindless reading/listening. It's getting a little out there in terms of fiction at this point but it's still entertaining and not too ridiculous. If you've read "The Stand" it has a similar but different twist. It's hard to explain without spoilers but if you've read this far into the series I'm sure you saw it coming.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It moves fast and keeps the pace.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Runnette?

    Grover Gardner maybe. Even though his pace is too slow, his ability to relay characters is much better and would make the main character much less annoying.


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

    Nope, it was just entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like the Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Survival genre it's worth listening. Put the speed at x1.5 and push through the beginning, you'll be hooked.

    "suspend disbelief"
    Would you listen to Zombie Fallout 5 again? Why?

    Yes ... it is captivating


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    BT ... but they all are good. And the characters you are supposed to dislike, you REALLY don't like.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Very easy to listen to. He sounds like "Mike" now.


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

    Hmmm


    Any additional comments?

    This is a bit different ... not our normal zombie story.

    "Not quite as good as the others but you can't skip"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Zombie Fallout 5 to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mark Tufo? Why or why not?

    Yes


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Perfect for the main character


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This is a weird little series. It took me halfway through the first book to get into the groove of the inappropriate humor, what is usually internal dialogue being external, and seemingly light-hearted approach to the zombie genre. Once I got it into my head that this felt like a character with some time and distance from the events using the "laugh or lose your mind and cry" approach it all made sense to me. I would encourage readers to hang in there, get through the first book, and see if it doesn't grow on you. If I hadn't paid 20 bucks for the audio book I would have stopped a chapter in. I'm soooo glad I didn't because now I'm on book 6 and I love this series. This isn't a humorous take on zombies. It is a character (like cops, military, er nurses etc) using sarcasm and black humor to get through tragedy and horror.

    "Worst book in the series"
    What would have made Zombie Fallout 5 better?

    If the book actually contained substantive material regarding the story line. Too much time was spent on flashbacks that did not add to the plot. And what a horrible ending, Really Mr. Tufo, what were you thinking?


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    I would listen to ANYTHING Mr. Runnette performs.


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

    Listening to Mr. Runnette's voice.

    "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.
