Publisher's Summary

The Talbots are evacuating their home amidst a zombie apocalypse. Mankind is on the edge of extinction as a new dominant, mindless opponent scours the landscape in search of food, which just so happens to be noninfected humans. This book follows the journey of Michael Talbot; his wife Tracy; and their three kids, Nicole, Justin, and Travis. Accompanying them are Brendon, Nicole's fiancé and former Wal-Mart door greeter, and Tommy, who may be more than he seems. Together they struggle against a ruthless, relentless enemy that has singled them out above all others.

The Talbots have escaped Little Turtle, but to what end? For, on the run, they find themselves encountering a far vaster evil than the one that has already beset them. As they travel across the war-torn countryside they soon learn that there are more than just zombies to be fearful of: With law and order a long-distant memory, some humans have decided to take any and all matters into their own hands. Can the Talbots come through unscathed, or will they suffer the fate of so many countless millions before them?

It's not just brains versus brain-eaters anymore. And the stakes may be higher than merely life and death, with eternal souls on the line.

    "Absolutely amazing"

    I can't believe I stumbled upon this series. I honestly can't get enough of this story. I love to read but with 3 kids and busy life I get literally zero time. Audible allows me to listen to this in the car, shopping, cleaning, literally every time I happen to be alone I'm listening. And this series is that dam good that I think about the current situations in the story when I'm not able to listen. The whitty humor that this author uses is amazing. I actually find myself laughing out loud while I'm grocery shopping. Start this series if you haven't already!!! Oh and the narrator is probably the best you could want to depict the main character.

    I have taught my two boys at home for the last 8 years. A love of literature of all kinds led me to Audible.

    Story
    "Even Better Than The First"

    This second book is excellent. While the title indicates that this series has gore and blood and zombies the majority of the writing is not about that. Written in journal format from in the first person , this ongoing story is about Mike Talbot ' s past and present. I read many first person narratives but not lot of those are written about an adult male's perspective who is married with 3 kids. What makes this story worth reading is Mike Talbot ' s sense of humor, his views on relationships, his sense of duty towards those he loves, and his dedication to brotherhood and friendship. Tufo seamlessly weaves a story full of flashbacks, laced with the challenging decisions Talbot must make to keep his band of survivors safe, and marked by just enough of the supernatural to keep the story interesting on that front. The characters are real and their choices compelling. Looking forward to the continuation of the story. (less)

    "Great story so far."

    Loving the series so far. The humor and the way our hero's mind wanders in dire situations reminds me of myself. Keep up the good work.

    "Consistently great!"

    I am already on my way to get book 3. I don't know which I enjoy more. The story is a pretty great turn on a zombie apocalypse, but the narrator sells it through.

    I find myself missing the voice and really looking forward to the next chapter.

    Story
    "A Plague Upon Your Family Zombie Fallout Book 2"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Plague Upon Your Family to be better than the print version?

    I read book 1 and am listening to book 2. The performance quality is terrific I think. I sit and stare at the wall for hours as I listen and see with my minds eye. I laugh out loud and then get a terminal pucker. I found myself yelling things like ..."NO!!"..."CRAP!!"...and other words not suitable to share with you here. I just bought book 3.Reading the first book was a feast for my minds eye. Did most of the reading on the can which caused some paralysis that I thought was permanent for an hour or more. There are better places to read. I wept when we lost Bear. I'm a dog owner and lover. If we had to lose him I would have preferred that we had a vivid description of his devastation of the first wave of the zombies before he went down. But I cannot judge the author. I admire his work too much. My compliments to Mark Tufo. I hated you briefly when we lost Jeb. But I was supposed to feel something like that wasn't I. My name tags all read "I FOUND YOU" I'm waiting for someone to recognize what that is from. I had always hated zombie stories until I read a Peter Meredeth series..."The Undead World". Great stuff. Now Marks work. I'm starting to live his story when I'm not reading it. Like life isn't twisted enough. Thanks for the very creative and entertaining works. You are a genius.


    What other book might you compare A Plague Upon Your Family to and why?

    APOCHOLIPSE, THE UNDEAD WORLD by Peter Meredith Books 1 thru 6. For the same reasons I like Marks work


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

    Sean's work is excellent. With just subtle changes in his voice he gives us many characters without making them silly or trite. He gives us insights bthat I missed when I read book one or maybe he just gave me different insights. Whatever. I totally enjoy his efforts. I will look for his name in other audio books.


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

    Like I said...When we lost Bear and when we lost Jeb. Even though they're demise was underplayed, I was moved.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like zombie stories and adventure. Mark Tufo is your author to look for. The guy has the gift.<br/><br/>Lynn David Hubsch

    "Fun and enjoyable story"

    The writer is very good with describing visuals and scents. Nauseatingly good. I also enjoyed the main character's sense of humor and sarcasm.

    "So slow"

    The story just had a lot of unnecessary details, and turns into side stories that had nothing to do with the main plot.
