    "Yes! Yes! Yes! AWESOMENESS!"

    I have been experiencing Zombie Fallout withdrawal, I know that there are other Mark Tufo books and all of them scratches that itch of Tufo-ism I have needed but none compare to the epicness of Zombie Fallout with Mike, his family, BT + Tommy facing a Zombie Apocalypse and all that it entails.

    I am a scientist at heart, a theoretical Chemist to be exact so I express myself well in the form of equation. I will use an equation to describe the narration:
    Sean Runnette + Mark Tufo = Perfection!
    That's just it.... Absolute PERFECTION. I don't know what fate put this author and this narrator together but to the powers that be... Thank you!

    Now this book is just plain exciting... There are so many moments that you are at the edge of your seat... And if you are a true fan of the art of Tufo-ism then you find a couple references to other books in the Talbot Universe (Callis Rose reference the most obvious there) which is always a trip. You have that dry sarcasm teeming from Mike Talbot, the mismatched thought processes of Trip along with his poor wife who is just perpetually confused by her husband, the downright brutish nature of BT, the crafty and hard to kill Mrs. Denou.... With the death of Eliza, Mike has to find a new quest and the quest here is simply to find a cure for his son and his best friend. This book was the nice combination of action as well as plot development.

    The book put me in a rather peculiar conundrum.... One where I couldn't help but make my way through this title, and also definitely not wanting it to end. It ended all too soon for me.... There will be more though. Thankfully there will be more! So my only problem with this title is..... I have to wait for book 8.

    "I'm afraid to say it..."

    ...but it wasn't my favorite of the Talbot Family saga.

    *Dodging stones*

    It felt a bit rushed. Sure, I loved hearing more from the Talbot family, BT and the return of Trip but when I heard "This is the conclusion of the audio book..." I literally said out loud, "That's it?" I literally scrubbed back to see if I had accidentally missed a few chapters.

    When I run out of audiobooks to binge upon, I'll revisit this and see if my opinion remains the same.

    "Even if it didn't have Zombies...."
    What did you love best about Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen?

    Zombie Fallout 7, correction ZF 1-7.... excellent writing, superb characters. It doesn't need the usual zombie hype. Mark Tufo always leaves you satisfied with the last book and wanting the next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    How can you pick a favorite when they are written so well by Mark Tufo and performed so perfectly by Sean Runnette that each one is ..... perfect. All of them, Mike Talbot, BT, every one of them... and of course Henry. Who is Henry you ask? When you read the book(s) you will love Henry.


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

    OK .... you're going to make me pick one. Michael Talbot. If you have read other reviews of any of the Zombie Fallout books you will see "Sean Runette IS Michael Talbot." over and over and over. No need to repeat it.


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

    Unfortunately, I have to eat and sleep .......


    Any additional comments?

    ALL of Mark Tufo books and series of books are a definite read. Start with Zombie Fallout, then you have a natural progression to the Indian Hill series then .....everything else he has written. I have several authors that are favorites, must reads, can't wait for the next book. John Grisham, Dean Koontz, Stephen King. Mark Tufo is included in that list.

    "Another Great Book in the Zombie Fallout Series"

    Number 7 is another wonderful edition in the Zombie fallout series. Mike Talbot and crew continue their way through the zombie apocalypse making their way in and out of trouble as they try and make their way. This follows the same pattern as the previous 6, with a bit of a twist when it comes to the zombies. Full of smart ass remarks and the return of John the tripper for some great laughs if you liked the ones before it you should definitely pick this one up. If you didn’t, why the hell are you considering this one? One word of caution though. Don’t read the Lycan Fallout book(s) before the end of this series. This book leaves you at another cliffhanger which will be partially ruined by that story.

    "hibernation does a zombie good!"
    Any additional comments?


    i must admit i was a little leery about the direction of the story now that eliza has been killed. i mean what could be worse than a vampire with mind control powers over zombies having a serious grudge against you? so, i was a little puzzled by publisher's summary, "What he does not know is that an old foe has risen up and a more insidious threat has emerged to not just the Talbots but all of humanity." so yes, i had to google the word, insidious, just to make sure i knew exactly what it meant. i can admit that AND still keep my man card. LOL now that i think about it, wanting to know exactly what insidious means probably has more to do with my obsession with this series. at first, i thought an enemy more insidious than eliza? no way! but after i looked it up, i realized i only knew a partial meaning of the word. after learning the full meaning of insidious and listening to the story, i now agree with the publisher's summary. eliza is not insidious. heck, she'd drive a dump truck full of zombies through the word! no, i'm not going to tell you what it means. go google it. i'm not your mother.

    "huh? what? take my pills?" sorry for the tangent folks. the adhd must be kicking in. LOL i'm supposed to be writing a review of the story, right? ok...on with the show...

    overall, the story is very entertaining. it's more of the same- the mike and bt comedy hour, but what's new is who occasionally gets in on it- tommy! no, you're not drunk or high! yes, you're reading that right. tommy gets in some zingers. and that's one of the surprising parts of this book. tommy has changed again. in this book, he's a b@d@$$, and it was kewl to see him let loose.

    the story is mostly told from mike's perspective, but interspersed b/ween his journal entries are tripp's story and mrs. deneaux's story. yes, the b!tch everybody loves to hate is still alive and doing her worst. oh will i savor it when she gets her comeuppance! believe it or not, tripp is even zanier in this book than in the previous one.

    milk does a body good! so does hibernation! well, at least for zombies. good for them but not for mike and company. early to bed, early to rise makes a man, healthy, wealthy, and wise. well, hibernation does a zombie good in a really bad way for mankind. with eliza roasting over the coals, romero has left the building.

    i won't say what they are, but there are a few plot threads that finally get tied together in this book. the weaving together of these threads reveals the insidious threat the publisher describes. so, not all is well in zombieland. this direction makes me a wee bit squeamish. but it won't stop me from downloading the next installment. speaking of which, the ending of this story is very abrupt, even for a tufo novel.

    as for narration, i have 1 word, "runnette." 'nuff said. btw, i finally googled him, and he looks nothing like i imagined.

    "Disappointed with unfinished feeling."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    First let me say I love this series. Mark Tufo is a freakin genius and Sean Runnette's narration is awesome. But this book left me with an unfinished feeling unlike the rest in the series. I enjoyed this book as much as the rest, but it left me feeling like I was watching great movie and the power went out. I had to double check that I didn't accidentally skip the end of the book some how. I hate the feeling of having to buy the next book to find out the end of a story. I never felt that way with all the other books in this series.

    "Great Series but Half a Book"

    I absolutely loved the series, and have also started the Lycan books too (maybe too early), and this book is no exception to the quality of both the story and the Sean Runnette's narration.

    The big negative I found was that it reminded me of the Twilight movies, where the last version was split in two to drag the story out, which may or may not have been the case, as the public were no doubt eager to get Mark's new chapter, but the story suddenly ended and left me wanting.

    I think I would have been happy to wait another six months for the complete story (of this chapter anyway), and certainly hope that the second half of the book comes out soon.

    "Not my favorite of the series but still..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    All Mark Tufu's books are time well spent..absoutely


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

    This is not my favorite of the series because he corrupted the characters in this book. He emasculated BT, made DeNo important, made Tommy the tamest vampire in the world and the doctor filled with hate. Dennis was introduced as a guy capable of anything but just follows DeNo around like a lapdog..what the f!


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

    He has just enough smartass and badass for the role!


    Do you think Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Oh yeah, he has got to fix this!


    Any additional comments?

    Mark Tufo is capable of sooo much more. Please order his other books!! You wont regret it.

    "Very enjoyable, loving the fallout series"
    What made the experience of listening to Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen the most enjoyable?

    I have always loved zombie books yet this series ignited a new fire in me both the Author Mark Tufo with his characters and wit and Sean Runnette with his brilliant narration had me enthralled. I am sure the humour written and well delivered had a few fellow travellers in my public transport to and from work thinking I am crazy. Well done guys, you are a great team.


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

    I think it has to be BT I really felt for him and Sean did the role very well


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

    Zombies, vampires everywhere but Talbot is here to save you all - be afraid


    Any additional comments?

    Great books, great narration, keep them coming and keep author and narrator together

    "The only thing bad about Book 7 is ..."

    it ends. Now I'm going through ZF withdrawal again and trying to pass time with other books that just don't stack up. ZF7 takes up where 6 left off and it was a great listen. I genuinely enjoy the interaction and dialogue between the characters and no one could ever narrate this series better than Runnette.

    My only disappointment is that ZF7 just sort of ends without any logical break in the storyline. One minute I'm listening to the current scene and the next I'm in the epilogues. I even hit the back button on my mp3 player to see if I had missed something. God I hope Tufo has ZF8 ready to go soon.

    Gotta admit I like ZF much better than Lycan Fallout. The dynamic relationships between the characters in ZF is half the enjoyment and with LF it's all gone. I often smile and chuckle with the banter in ZF but this doesn't exist in LF and I really missed it. Just makes me appreciate the ZF even more now.

    "Amazing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this to a friend i have been trying to get a group of friends interested in Mark Tufo's books for a while as his writing style is fantastic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    as a devout Talbot follower I often find my self asking "what would Talbot do?"


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

    Sean and Mark are the perfect match, Marks writing is brought to life by Sean's unique voice and skill.


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

    Mike and BT are on top form as ever the duo had me laughing all the way through


    Any additional comments?

    spoiler alert!!! If your worried about the absence of a certain vampire, don't be, there is a fantastic twist to this story that certainly takes the Talbot family through even more danger and it this book looks set to see more Zombie Fallouts in future.

    "So good to be "back with Mike"..."
    If you could sum up Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen in three words, what would they be?

    funny, poignant, enlightening


    What did you like best about this story?

    The exploration of the unfinished business that the characters faced "post Eliza". Along with new twists (wont ruin those) and developments in the way everything happened in the first place and how the plot teases with the tie ins that run back through generations of the Talbots. Good back story for some of the other characters too!For a fan of the set, this felt like coming home!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Epilogue 2 as its a big teaser about the fact that theres something special about Mike that has "always been there"


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

    The whole book and I CANT ruin it for other readers


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not the end of the ZF series, that much becomes obvious....but it does lay a LOT of groundwork and it's building up to something spectacular....ZF8 will be a rollercoaster

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen?

    John the tripper and BT

    "Back On Track - Great Story"
    Where does Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    THis is one of my favourite of the Zombie Fallout series and is one of the more enjoyable books I've recently listend to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character is, and always will be, Mike Talbot - he seems such an ordinary guy next door type of bloke.


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

    Sean Runnette is a great narrator and I will always now associate him with Mark Tufo books, or maybe more Mike Talbot. I've listened to the first couple of Indian Hill books too and again he just typifies Mike Talbot.


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

    No, I never want to listen to a book in one sitting. However, after a 7 hour round trip down south this past week I did manage to listen to most of it.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is one of the strongest in the series from the past 3 books. I think it's back on track again - I am glad (SPOILER ALERT) Eliza is now done and dusted and we have new Mr Evils to contend with!

    "Brilliant but slightly disappointing"

    Well, I am a massive fan of Mark Tufo. His characters are fabulously realistic and the humour he injects is wonderful. I eagerly awaited this book for two reasons;
    I love Talbot and clan and was missing them and worried for BT and Justin
    I wanted to see what Trip and BT made of each other!

    This was a great book, full of the things that make Tufo's writing great. I really enjoyed the development of the story, the consequences of Eliza's demise and the urgency of saving two beloved characters. I enjoyed the new characters and the revelations the book holds. However, I felt that this book was essentially a road trip with no resolve. I LOVE THIS BOOK, don't think otherwise, but it felt over all too quickly and nothing had really happened. Of course, lots happened! It is packed full of great scenes but the overall story felt like it was on hold. This felt a little like a vehicle to get the story to the right point for ZF8. It was a bullet proof Hummer with roof mounted RPG, but a vehicle nonetheless.

    Let me make myself clear - this is a great book and I loved it as I have loved every ZF book. Mark Tufo is brilliant! As you can see, I have given it top marks and it's well deserved.

    SPOILERS FROM THIS POINT ON

    BT and Trip - The play between Trip and Talbot is brilliant. It matches that between BT and Talbot. I was looking forward to, and hoping for, a reunion between Trip and Talbot and was not disappointed. However, I was disappointed at how little time was devoted to that in the story. Don't get me wrong, I loved it, but I was hoping for more. I was really looking forward to BT's reaction to Trip but again felt a little cheated. I hoped for more time devoted to this and felt a little deflated by its brevity. There is a huge amount of action and peril accompanying this meeting and the brevity is reasonable. I was just a little disappointed.

    Only Zombie Fallout compares, there are other great zombie books but Fallout are the best.


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

    All - Sean Runnette is perfect in reading Mark Tufo books, the two just work!


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

    Moved? No but had fits of laughter, the humour just works for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Seemed to have to wait ages for this book (only because they are so good), to be honest this book was a great listen although it was all done in a day, now have to wait again for next one. This was a very good book bit in a way it felt like a setup book for Zombie Fallout 8, it is more about the transition from Eliza beating to a new Talbot adventure, although fully entertaining all the way I was hoping for a longer book! There is no doubt in my mind Zombie Fallout 8 is top of my purchase list and if you have done Zombie Fallout 1-6 this is a MUST listen! Not giving any details about plot as you just need to listen for yourself, a zombie fan or comedy fan it will work for you.
