Before there were zombies.... There was the virus that started it all. In this Zombie Fallout prequel, Mark Tufo tells the story of how it all began.

The short answer is 'NO', this is not worth the credit to me. It 'should' be a gift with books 1-3 or a prologue to Book 4. It feels like a total and complete cash grab.
So, I paid the $10.
I did spend the first 15 minutes wondering if I downloaded the wrong book. It manages to sort itself out and is an odd, but nice back story addition to the series.
When I completed chapter 1 of "ZF4" I appreciated "ZF3.5" a little more and felt it was a "must read' for me as a part of fully enjoying the series.
Perhaps, I'm picking nits..but I still don't see it as a good value. This novella capitalizes on Tufo's readership unfairly...

This was a break in the storyline from before, in the same vein and world of course but in a different time. This one happens years before the first three and tells you what happened to bring about the inevitable Zombie invasion. It was done very well, writing, narration and all. I find this title necessary actually if you want to truly understand the entire series.
Huge Zombie fan! Need I say more?
If you want to get a better understanding of the ZF series, get this book.
I listened to this book between books 3 and 4. I've listened to all of them now and am anxiously awaiting number six. That being said, while 3.5 gives the reader good background information that I appreciated having while listening to other books, I found myself wishing this book would hurry up and end so I could get back to the Talbots. While that may not translate to such a good review for this particular book, to me it speaks volumes about how much I've enjoyed the rest of the series.
Also, I'm not really sure I like the Hugh-mann storyline. It's just a little out-there for me. It's just not as cool as the rest of the story. My thoughts were, "Tiny people? Really?"
If you have listen to the Zombie Fallout series by Tufo then this is a good history to how the plague got started. What is particular interesting, you get some insight to Tommy. So yes this is a must read/listen to the Tufo series and yes Sean Runnette does an excellent job.
I didn't read the print version as I have fallen in love with the dry humour that is Sean Runnette's gorgeous narration :-)
For me, it was when Thomas appeared at the door with his goods. It sent a shiver up my spine!
Hard to say really. He does each character justice!
I don't think this book is long enough to be a film but definitely think it is required reading/listening before continuing to Fall out 4.
You'll love it !
Great performance just like in the other books in the series.
Just a little to short. There is so much back story to tell.
This part of the series takes us away from the action for a while but is a great addition to the series as it takes us back in time to add some back story to the zombie story. By it self it wouldn't make much sense at all, but if you listen to it after book 3 it's well worth the additional information and some of the info will come into play later.

Nice addition to the Zombie Fallout Series. It fills in a bit of the back story of how the Zombies came to be. Make sure you don’t read this before book 3, or else it won’t make a lot of sense. I rated it 3 stars on this book alone, but if you’ve read the series then I would definitely recommend this book.
A man. A plan. A canal. Panama
This book was awful. It feels shoehorned and ridiculous. Tufo never should have written this book.
