Publisher's Summary

As the world spirals even further down into the abyss of apocalypse, one man struggles to keep those around him safe. Michael stands side by side with his wife, their children, his friends, and the wonder Bulldog, along with the Wal-Mart greeter Tommy, who is infinitely more than he appears. Whether Tommy is leading Mike and his family and friends to salvation or death remains to be seen.

    "Gore and shtick"

    There's series Zombie works like World War Z, Night of the Living Dead and the Walking Dead; and then there's campy works like this and Z nation. I think both types are important to the genre. I so happy to have found it.

    I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!

    Story
    "Quite Enjoyable Installment!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The End the most enjoyable?

    The narration and story of course...it was really good!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mike!! I love him...he is hilarious, and believable...he makes you want to know him!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    hmmmmmm....I dont know if I can pinpoint a fave in this book....it was a bit darker than the first 2...maybe the beginning!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I almost did....lol if it wasn't for sleep and work...I would have!


    Any additional comments?

    I adore this series...Mike and his family are all awesome...this book is darker than the first 2 and some secrets are revealed...so it is a very important installment....I think it is just going to get darker from here on out...and I cant wait to listen to the next one...I love this series and if you like zombies and the end of the world books, you will too...2 thumbs up, would give it 3 if I could!! :)

    Story
    "Fiendshly funny!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend to anyone who has been swept up by the zombie movies, books and stories filling the marketplace these past few years. The story is original, though at times your imagination has to be stretched due to another close escape that shouldn't have been possible. Why still read? You WANT them to survive and their luck is all that they have against vampires and zombies. They lose a large asset this time around and things never looked bleaker. The Talbots will survive and do so with humor. Until it's impossible to live any longer of course.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Humorous comments we all can understand and relate to though some can be offensive. Small victories when none seem possible or even likely.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Great narrator. Good pacing and performed wonderfully.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Fear for our heroes/heroines prevails.

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    Story
    "It just went on too long"

    There is less rectal humor in this one, so that is a big plus. And a bit less complaining about women, so that is another plus. The story, however, went on too long. It felt like the story should have ended after the battle at Camp Custer since that was the climax of the story, but then it goes on and on and on with dozens more scenes that had no real purpose (i.e. no goal is reached).

    And to top it off, the epilogue goes back into the past where we have to hear about Talbot using drugs (I thought he was a marine?? drug use doesn't really fit that, does it?). The only purpose I can see for this epilogue is so the author can use a short story he wrote about the same characters - because it certainly has nothing to do with these zombie books. Or with character development: we've already seen tons of pages about Mike, so why do we need this unrelated flashback?

    I also don't know why we're subjected to an unrelated thread where we start following Paul's journey... it is tacked on at the end, has no point or resolution and seems to be there to add some pages to this story, and, perhaps, because the author needs these characters 'in place' for book 4? No idea. But really, the last 1/5 of the book was just a let-down with more of the same old, same old and no forward moving points.

    I already have the next book in the series, but that is the last one of these I'll be reading, regardless of how the author drops the ball at the end of the book as his ploy to get you to keep buying (i.e. you will buy the next book to find out why on earth he tacked on 60 pages of junk at the end of this one).

    The narration is the same as the others. I wouldn't recommend reading the books out of order. The is some foul language, no sex, and the violence is mostly non-graphic.

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

    Great story, great Zombie book, with a good amount of humor


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

    Interesting character voices/personalities


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if it's just the way he portrays her voice to distinguish her from the other characters, but he always makes Tracey sound like a raging ass, even during fairly innocuous moments. And she seems pretty nice.
