Publisher's Summary

This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book One of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity. 

Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy's powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie queen? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family, together with the remnants of a tattered community, must fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all. 

This is a new and updated edition of the previously published title, which originally released on Audible in 2012. This new production features the author's most updated language and revisions, aligning with the most recent edition of the eBook.

Read through time and time again.

Years ago when Zombie Fallout originally released for audible it became my first adventure into audiobooks. Turns out this one story would define 95% of my future library on audible. Tufo brings it again and again with each successive novel. I just recently listened to the old version of this to only immediately revisit it as soon as this current version hit the metaphorical shelves.

ugh skip it. sorry to say

could not get past the first few chapters. the so called humor just doesn't fit and does not fit the tone of the book.

Audible has two versions of the same book

This is a GREAT book. One of my favorites. Mark Tufo is AWESOME and Sean Runnette is the BEST! This showed up in my recommendations as un-owned. However, this is exactly the same as "Zombie Fallout: Zombie Fallout, Book 1" that I have in my collection. I've been finding more and more of these books that are put in my recommendations, but that I already own. It seems as Audible converts books to "Only from Audible" titles, they are pruning off older versions of books. They NEED TO FIX THIS as I have over 600 books and remembering what I listened to in 2008 is impossible.

Great series, but not much actually changed.

I listened to the new addition. Not much seems different. Thought they were going to change more in the new edition. I've listened to this series maybe 2 times on majority of the books, but still working on finishing book 8 for 1st time.
Ignore the comment that one person made about the garage and the humor for this character. The door was opened in a previous chapter. The statement made about the narrator and the character's humor is definitely off. He/she probably was not military. Military sometimes has a strange sense of humor as well as how it is delivered and I think he nailed. Just as Dick Hill has the perfect voice for Jack Reacher. Sean Runnette is great for Mike Talbot.

One of the BEST zombie series in existance..

This is only the third book series that I felt worth of my time to review and I have Thousands of kindle books and almost two hundred audio books.. so here goes.

Mark Tufos Zombie Fallout series is a great series I actually read 8 of the 13 or so books in the series..
( I got a divorced dx'd with MS, started working full time, my mom died.. yeah.. i got busy.. books were back burner both as recreation and in regards to $$ and recreation, but I digress)
I loved reading the series.. I laughed, I cried, I loved and I hated. and the bonus Bulldog made some things just all too real for me because I know from real life experience that bulldog farts can probably rival zombie stink,.

Then I discovered the series on Audible and at the same time I found myself simultaneously with a few audible credits not slated for any book i really wanted and suffering serous withdrawal while waiting for the ninth book in the Outlander series to come out (ANY TIME NOW Diana Gabaldon!! Get Crackin! I'm Sufferin! )

So.. I bought the first book to listen to while I sulked and pouted.. and HOLY MOTHEROFFRANK!!
IM DYIN HERE!! long story short, if you need a laugh this audible book has got them.
that is all.. it will not disappoint you in terms of action, adventure or laughs.
And the narrator was a great fit!
thanks for tuning in.

Wrong Narrator

This might be a good story, but I will never know because the narrator was awful. Sing-song and drops the end of EVERY sentence; he just doesn't seem right for the humor in this book. I didn't really care for any of the characters and some of it was pretty dumb, in the little I heard. How did the zombies get IN the garage if all the doors were shut?

For some reason, I am not allowed to return it, even though I only got an hour into it before giving up.

You will love it.

I cannot stress enough how much you will love these books. You will not be dissatisfied. Tufo is a God, Runette is a puppet master

Loved it!

I don't normally read this genre and the only series that I have read I can count on one hand. I normally read mysteries, true crime, and biographies. This was a deal of the day and it sounded interesting. I do like watching the Walking Dead so I figured I'd give it a shot. I am so happy I did. I love the narrator, the story, and the characters. Finished it in two days and came back to purchase the next book in the series. I love the sarcastic wit, which plays to my own sense of humor. Looking forward to the next book!

Worth a listen but be prepared

The farts, smells, details of shits, really are unnecessary in what otherwise is a, in parts, funny, scary and interesting take on a Zombie apocalypse.
I find it annoying that a “survivor” only ensured his boys were taught how to shoot and take care of their guns, while the women were short tempered and nasty but useless at defending themselves. All that said I’ve bought the following books to see what happens next.

Fantastic Series!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’m now on book 5, and can’t stop listening to this story. Great story telling, engaging, fast paced and full of dark humour. By far the best Apocalyptic Fiction I’ve found so far!

Zombie Fallout

Mark Tufo is a bloody brilliant author it shows with this book he made the characters of this book real.

and with the voice acting talents and skills of Sean Runnette who makes the characters and world come alive with the narration..

This book is a must to listen to and owned..
