It was a flu season like no other. With the H1N1 virus running rampant throughout the country, people lined up in droves to try and attain one of the coveted vaccines. What was not known was the effect this largely untested, rushed to market, inoculation was to have on the unsuspecting throngs. Within days, feverish folk throughout the country convulsed, collapsed, and died, only to be reborn. With a taste for brains, blood, and bodies, these modern-day zombies scoured the lands for their next meal. Overnight the country became a killing ground for the hordes of zombies that ravaged the land.
This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.
Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy's powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie queen? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family, together with the remnants of a tattered community, must fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all.

"Once you read the first few pages of Zombie Fallout, you're in for the series." (John Ramsey Miller, author of The Last Family)
“The word lighthearted doesn’t usually come to mind when we think of the zombie apocalypse, but Sean Runnette does a skillful job balancing humor with horror in this audio edition, which makes for an entertaining stroll with the walking dead…Runnette gives Talbot a dry, I-knew-this-was-going-to-happen-to-me-someday attitude that captures the wry spirit of Tufo’s prose. This provides a welcome departure from the doom and gloom of most zombie tales, and Runnette wrings plenty of chuckles from the material. Still, the narrator doesn’t forget that this is an apocalyptic horror story, making sure there are plenty of chills and thrills along the way.” (Publisher’s Weekly)
Would recommend this book as well as the others in the set, would not normally buy all books in one go but after the first hour of listening downloaded the complete set so far.. as there is more to come well done Mark Tufo
Not easy to pick one memorable moment, I think all of michael talbots inner mental ramberlings are hilarious
great author, will even take the time to write to you via his facebook page. enjoyed all of the books
Just a dude
So F$#%in AWESOME!
When Talbot sees dead walking and realizes this is his fastasy slash nightmare. That among a million fun and scary moments.
Talbot of course but Tommy was funny he does an amazing job with all of them.
I wanted to listen to this book multiple times in one sitting!
Every book he writes needs to be available on audible!

Yes, it was full of dark humor and sarcasm.
His voice is perfect for the main character, Mike. He has a very dry tone that perfectly compliments Mike's sarcasm.
I liked this one so much, I immediately bought the next and the next until I had bought (and listened to) all four that are available on audio. I wish I could find more to read that is similar.
I'm what some folks call, "extremely average."
Yes - great story -good reader!
Mike! He's got big stones, but he's very realistic
Captures the author's sarcasm!
Laughed aloud many times!
Just bought book 2! Can't wait!
This series is AWESOME! I see some people have "complained" about the humor...it's dark and sarcastic humor and I think it made the book.! I didn't want to "put them down".!!! Highly recommended!
I love this book, the strange workings of Talbot's mind cracks me up and comforts me at the same time, It's nice to know you're not the only one with strange errant thoughts, and anyone whose been through war or in the military can relate to the strong bonds of friendship you make when you go through a disaster or crisis, If the apocalypse comes, I'm finding a Talbot!
I've never seen a zombie movie or read a zombie book before this one. I do greatly enjoy Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden and select sci-fi but I am usually a mystery girl all the way.
Loved it! Action packed like Clive Cussler's books. Maybe it is just because I am new to the zombie genre but I listened to all of Zombie Fallout Series in one week.
The characters are great. The repartee is hilarious as long as the F word(in all its tenses and variations) doesn't bother you. Mike Talbot is the main character and he is filled with quirks and phobias that might make you think that you are sane. Great interaction between the characters and various locations and zombie battles make it a non-boring read. And Henry the bulldog is fantastic!
Worth a second listen, the author and narrator did a fantastic job with this book, and there are some fantastic plot twists.
Mike Talbot and BT.
The narrator brought the main character to life, to the point of making the listener feel that he or she may actually know someone like that.
The event with Eliza and the Armory Zombie.
The story is so compelling (if your a zombie novel fan) that I didn;t with to get more credits to get other books in the series.
I like zombie flicks just like the next guy, but in general I'm a hard-core science fiction reader. However, between this series and JL Bourne's series, I'm starting to look for zombie post apocalyptic books. This series is riveting with the occasional tongue in cheek hurmor that I find myself laughing out loud occasionally. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't count this as a comedy, but there is some humor mixed in with the zombie killing and narrow escapes. Now I've got to use my remaining credit for the month on the second book. Arghhh.
