This “Zombpoc” is like no other I’ve read, and I’ve read dozens.
The characters are great to follow along with and there’s always a tiny cliffhanger as you go along. Can’t wait for the next installment.
Most books from this genre are chock full of gore and this offers something so different. Survival and hope, blended in with terror and the raw exposure of human nature.

This prequel to the Zombie Fallout series is a great addition to an already amazing story. Tufo keeps his readers turning the pages. Each book in the series flow seamlessly together, so no using up 1/4 of the story to catch the reader up. Read them in order! Mr. Tufo is mazing writer and there can be no better narrator than Sean Runnete, who brings each character to life.

What made the experience of listening to Pandemic the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the outbreak concept

Any additional comments?

There was too much blatant product placement. I felt the Audible placement was quite cheesy and out of place. I’m in a germ war zone but I can’t wait to hear, “This is audible!” Too out of place. There’s a time for advertising, this wasn’t it. I did enjoy the story.

Timothy is one foul character and you just gotta get this series. As always, Sean Runnette's ability to make you believe the characters is fantastic. Mr. Tufo has got to have some seriously bad nightmares to come up with this stuff. You won't be disappointed if Mark Tufo's name is attached.

Mr. Tufo's use of characters is brilliant. The narrator is engaging and totally believable. Of course he is with this kind of material, it's a double recipe for success. Make sure you have plenty of time and credits because you're going to want the entire series.

The entire series has ben a lot of fun to listen to. The way the characters develop over time draws yo deeper into the story with each passing chapter. The authors ability to lead you down a path to a forgone conclusion and then tun at the last moment, never feels forced or obvious. I never felt like I knew where the story was going, because when I did, I was almost always wrong.

Certain characters are killed off when their story line has ended, and none seem to linger too long. Let's just hope the heros don't have to die for fashions sake.
