I always thought that you couldn't perfect perfection but apparently I was wrong. Tufo and Runnette are Michael Talbot!!!! if you have never read a book written by Mark Tufo your literary life isn't complete. I'm not going to go into any details about this book ,what I am going to say is start from the beginning you won't regret it. You will get sucked into a world and will never want to leave.

THE BEST ONE YET!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes to be better than the print version?

I only say yes because I Love Sean Runnette!

What did you like best about this story?

The depth of the main characters commitment and loyalty to his family and friends. This series is so different from anything I have ever read. I never know what is going to happen next. I have listened to so many books that I have been able to figure out what was going to happen long before the story was over. I like to be surprised and Mark Tufo isn't afraid of the road less traveled. IH 4 stopped at the perfect moment and I can't wait for IH 5!!!

What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

EVERYTHING!! He is my all time favorite narrator! He was born to be Mike Talbot!

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

There are to many to count. I laughed out loud several times, said NO, NO, NO, and cried several times!

If you could sum up The Spirit Clearing in three words, what would they be?

Goosebumps, Gut Wrenching Heartache and Spiritual!!!

What did you like best about this story?

The meaning behind it and the way it made you feel and think about your life and what is important. I feel as if I know the human soul better because this book will reach everyone who reads it in some way! It is not a sappy love story or a gore fest but it will make you wonder about the things you can't see with the naked eye and question the things we can see!

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

I have read the book and knew I had to listen to it!!! Sean Runnette IS Mike Talbot!!! The emotions I felt were so much stronger while listening compared to reading the book. I guess it's because I feel as if I know Mike Talbot and I care for his character so hearing the voice I associate with it being him and it pulls at my heartstrings.

Who was the most memorable character of The Spirit Clearing and why?

I am a huge Mark Tufo fan so I have soft spot for all of the characters in his books since they are based around the same people just in different stories. I have to say Mike Talbot anyway because he's AWESOME no matter what he does!!!

Any additional comments?

This book once again proves what a talented author Mark Tufo is!!! Never ( except Stephen King) have I experienced an author who can write a book so well that as soon as I start reading or listening its like I am watching the movie in my head!!!!

Mark Tufo's mind is like the best roller coaster in the world.......you can't wait to ride it because it's so awesome, then when it's over your still so pumped you have to get right back in line and do it again!!! I have listened to all of the Zombie Fallout books and knew I had to listen to Timothy! It was like being behind enemy lines and learning their secrets. There is no sugar coating on this one and that's what made it so good. If you aren't afraid of clowns you will be when your done reading this. I don't want to give anything away so I am going to keep this short. Keep in mind that Timothy is not your average Zombie and you might even come to like him a little bit! This is one of those books that 20 years from now will still be in the back of my mind, making me recheck the deadbolts on my door!!! Mark Tufo is such a gifted author and he has this amazing ability to make you feel like you are experiencing the same thing as his characters are. He is so genuine and is so involved with his fans that he and his wife take the time to personally thank each and everyone of us daily! I will be forever a fan and dedicated reader! Now onto Zombie Fallout 6.......It's supposed to be out today and even though I love to listen to Sean Runnette (I will buy the audible when it comes out) I have to know what happens next to the Talbot's and of course B.T.!!!

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

Absolutely!!! I have become obsessed with the character Mike Talbot! Mark Tufo has left an everlasting mark on me and has changed the way I think a character should be presented to the reader. The people in his book(s) become your friend and then your family! I have become so involved in his stories that I have actually laughed out loud one minute and then found myself in tears the next. I can't even compare Mark Tufo to another author because he is one in a million and will be the author others want to be compared to!!!

What other book might you compare Indian Hill Series #1: Indian Hill to and why?

I can't because it is so original. It is based on an alien invasion and how people handle being thrown into turmoil.......will you become a better person in the end or will you become a monster?

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

I have listened to Zombie Fallout 1-5 and Timothy by Mark Tufo. Sean Runnette in my mind is Mike Talbot and can't imagine anyone else reading these books. He is amazing!!!
