Description

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.

An excellent sequel

The second installment of the Zombie Fallout series most definitely did not disappoint. The first title leaves you essentially salivating for more with the way it ended and I can assure you this will do the same. It would appear that the author of these books, Mark Tufo, is a fan of ending these titles at a stage that just leaves you craving for more (I somewhat hope that by the time I listen through all the books the other installment would be out).

A number of other characters were brought to the fore here during this book, as well as a number of interesting twists where the zombies are concerned. The entire Talbot family all goes through varying degrees of changes through this one but once again seeing the world through the eyes of Mike Talbot in this post-apocalyptic world is probably the most enjoying part of this. I really do agree with him that he needs to be checked out after all this and I don't particular mean because of the traumatic experience of being hunted by Zombies, clearly his issues are far deeper routed but yet it makes for a HILARIOUS listen.

Sean Runnette is perfection in this title especially where he depicts Mike Talbot (the main character). I honestly believe you would be hard pressed finding anyone who could do anything better than what he did in this title. He simply made it a joy to listen to...

Two Thumbs Up for AWESOMENESS!

On to the next one....

EXCELLENT!!!

I'm not one to even consider reading this type of book (my personality doesn't fit this type of read), but I decided to step outside my typical "zone" and am SO GLAD that I did! Sean Runnette does a SUPERB job narrating and I hope he continues to do so through book 6! Never a dull moment...Loaded with laughs, suspense, anxiety... I would DEFINITELY recommend this author and this series to everyone! (Hope Audible will carry all of this authors books soon!)

More Gross-Out, Less Humor

I loved the first book in this series - it has a great gross-out factor tempered with a lot of humor, and a dead-pan delivery (ha ha) that reminds me of Ray Romano (love him).

The second book is much darker, dramatically ups the gross-out factor, and has way less humor. Plus, it introduces vampires, which feel very out of place in this story, and I had a hard time reconciling it. I don't think I'll continue with the series; I wish I'd stopped at book 1. (Still read book 1 - it's an awesome ride!)

Amazing Sequel!!!

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

What was suppose to be a 30 min trip to the grocery store lapsed into a hour and a half because of this book. I was trying to find a stopping place to check-out but one never came; I couldn't stand to push pause.
As the Talbots continue their journey to Mrs' Talbot's mother's house the caravan just can't get a break. This poor family and their friends just has the worse luck sometimes but thank goodness for Tommy and his premonitions or spirit guide (who he calls Ryan Seacrest...LOL...just cracks me up).
The story does have mild but intense action scenes like the battle between the sick rapist in the white ford trucks and the Talbot caravan but the intense, edge of the seat gripping, anxiety evoking battle is the last battle in this book.

Which scene was your favorite?

Imagine walking next to a women in a grocery store who is laughing so hard and so loud she causes those around her to laugh. Well I have to say Mike's McDonald's story was hilarious.
Scariest part was the just about every battle or encounter they had with the Zombies.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait till the third installment...I will miss the Talbots.

Utterly Disappointed

The voice acting was quite good however the material he had to work with lest a lot to be desired. I enjoyed the first book but this is the end for me. It’s full of pointless gross out “humor” and juvenile antics. By the end I couldn’t wait for it to be over.

great performance, funny writing, lacks story

I've listened to 4 or 5 of the titles in this series, and the writing is very entertaining, but the story goes nowhere. The narration is the high point and Sean Runnette is what makes this series worth going that far in. I was just disappointed with the same plot elements in every book, and lack of advancing the story.

book 2 is just more of book 1

eh, I should have stopped with the first book. The story felt predictable and the way each event played out wasn't anything unexpected. the first book had me intrigued, the 2nd book lost all of my interest.

a bit racist

The narrator does a wonderful job of bringing the story and characters to life, but I couldn't keep listening to the main character go on about his sexist and racist views. The characters that aren't white and Male are stereotypical and are routinely shown as inferior by the author. I tried to enjoy the book, but I couldn't connect with the bigotry that the author wrote in.

no thanks.

how many off topic rants do you think you can fit into 1 story before it's so watered down you couldn't care less? This many.

book zero was great, 2 bad it was only 2 hours long. I loathe this series now. The main character takes so many deviations from the story or inserts COUNTLESS "witty" comments that it quickly becomes frustrating...

i mean there's a 10m rant about a seemingly unrelated McDonald's story. as far as I can tell this was inserted simply to waste even more time. honestly I feel like the author had this great story but the publisher was like "hey you know what would make this even better!? 4 or 5 hours of useless BS!" ... it's either that or an extremely strong case of ADD is being displayed here.

Seriously, if you were to re-write this minus the BS it probably be a great 4-6 hour listen.

it reads like this,

example sentence:
The boy went to the store and purchased a gallon of milk.

what to expect:
the boy went to the store... (just then I remembered I forgot the stove on the other day hahaha isn't that crazy I mean the stove, I just left it on)... and purchased a gallon (not a full gallon because this one time in Canada I almost did that but then remembered that I shouldn't have, cause cops)...of milk!


...see my point, wasnt that f'ing annoying? n now MY rant is over, I almost feel better for wasting the money.

Frightening Flatulence

If the author had not dedicated at least 2 full chapters & that's not including it coming up at various times in 95% of the other chapters it could have been a much better book! I still feel like a kid in that farts are still funny & a great natural enjoyment! I'm speaking of mine! I am 62 yoa & that'll tell you if nothing else, way too much time was spent on that subject of the main character & his dog! From descriptions of the smells , the colors of vapors to the car behind them swerving because oh his farts! If you took offence to my revue, stay away from the book!
