"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."

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.
I stumbled across the Zombie Fallout Series while looking for a new book to listen to, while waiting for my normal series to comeout. The characters are well developed, the story is engrossing, and the humor that Mark Tufo shows through Mike Talbot, has made this far and away my favorite series. Sean Runnette has a fantastic voice, and is right up there with Dick Hill and Scott Brick in my opinion. I cannot recommend this series highly enough !
Monster Hunters International
Where Mike Talbot faced the possibility of having to kill his son
Listen to the first book, and you will be hooked on the series. Get the next one out Mark ... Hurry !!!
I love the narrator , he really brings it to life. The story is really addictive. I love the humor thrown in unexpectedly.
I haven't read any zombie series before. I tried another "zombie" story but couldn't finish it. I truly think this is a one of a kind series. no comparison.
His voice is perfect and the sarcasm is great. The female voices aren't as great but are still humorous at his attempt.
no, I just couldn't wait to get back to this book in any free time I could manage.
I can't wait for the next one. Mark Tufo is definetly a one of a kind writer. I look forward to reading more from this talented author!
I thought this one was so much more entertaining than the previous books of the series. Good action, love the cliffhanger, the twists and turns seem to never end.I so like that this is not some Rambo type story.
I can't really say. I liked them all - well, some I liked hating! Okay, actually I don't care much for the main character's wife. Too bossy. But, I guess he needs a wife like that - you know, more like a mother.
He is a great reader. I will look for his other books. He really brings the story to life.
Only thing I don't like is that so many of the characters have the same wittiness as the main character. That's a bit annoying.
Mark delivers his trademark brand of dark, dry humour again. Some reviews are less than flattering but I disagree. Sure, its not the best of the series but highly entertaining nonetheless. There are key plot twists that you will want to know about before dipping in to the next release in the series. If you're already a Tufo fan you won't be disappointed. Some stories die out because the author has exhausted the concept. This is not the case here.
Fast, Slow, and Frustrated.
Fas t- the story flew by way to fast and I really enjoy Tufo's writing.
Slow - there was not enough story progression. It was almost like a side story.
Frustrated - I found the series not too long ago and started. Luckily book five was a few months out after finishing the 4th book. I was excited, but it lacked.
He brings the characters to life and expresses the sarcasm well.
Not as good as the first four because there were too many lengthy flashbacks.
Mike Talbot is the reason I kept reading after the first book. If a Zombie apocalypse actually happened, sanity would likely be in short supply. Mike's battles to protect his family and remain somewhat sane are what is most interesting. Also, trying to figure out why Tommy is helping his sister still.
The narration is great for Talbot even if he does kind of sound like Peter Griffin. The Talbot's are from Maine, but sound pretty "Boston" to me.
Yeah, I now really hate cats!
