Another masterpiece from Mark Tufo

Would you consider the audio edition of Tattered Remnants to be better than the print version?

I would have to be honest to say that both are equal, what I miss reading the book I catch on the audiobook.

What did you like best about this story?

What isn't to like about this story. It is like lays potato chips you can't just have one.

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

Sean makes the audiobooks come to life with his voice, he makes every character seem so real.

Any additional comments?

Thank you Mark Tufo and Sean Runnette for giving so much of your time to make this series so awesome!

You could tell the characters were tired

Having escaped the facility where the tainted flu shots were created, and after evading the clutches of Deneaux in the last volume; the Talbots are reunited at Ron's. There is some happiness and, sadly, some heartache. Mike notices Tommy is acting strange and soon he finds out why. There are some vampires coming to investigate Eliza's death, and they are close. Now, the family is planning for the worst, buffing up defenses, finding a fallback position, and of course, getting into trouble at every turn. To make matters more complicated, Mike hears a familiar voice over the radio asking for help. A voice they all thought long gone.

Sean Runnette nailed it again as Mike, BT, Tripp, and the rest of the Talbot gang. I have mentioned it before; he is these characters, plain and simple. He reads the inflections seemingly perfect, and understands all the humor almost as if he himself wrote it. The man has great range; all character is easily distinguishable, his female voices are just as good as his male voices, and he reads with feeling. Zombie Fallout is my only real experience with Runnette; now that I am all caught up on the series I look forward to trying some of his other works, most likely Hemlock Grove.

This book had a different feel than the rest. You could tell the characters were tired, worn, and scarred. The tone of the novel was more morose; as if you were attending the wake of someone close, with loved ones sharing stories and you hear soft laughter and soft sobbing at the memories. and it felt like it should. It's book nine of the Zombie Fallout series and there has been death and despair in spades throughout, and the characters show it; their interactions are all a little shorter and sharper, tempers are thin and stress is abundant. That's not the say the book felt different all together, not at all. You still get all the banter you've come to enjoy in Tufo's writing, the development of the "smart zombies" that have been coming to light over the last couple of books, and the same heartfelt emotion that has me cemented as a fan. However, there does seem to be less of the dark humor from his earlier books, which suits the story's progression perfectly and makes the world Mark has built all the more engrossing. It's packed with intense moments, funny moments, emotional moments, and moments that may even make you take pause. Mark Tufo has written a very good series with a great cast of characters. This is a good addition to the story, adapting the story to an ever changing world, all while keeping the core of what made it so good to begin with.

Straying a bit from the orriginal premise

I really like Mark Tufo’s work. His mix of wit, one liners and violence and gore make an interesting and intriguing mix. That being said, it might be time to end the Zombie fallout series. It seems to have gone a bit off the rails, zombies are getting smarter or bigger and there are more supernatural creatures than you can shake a stick at. This one doesn’t seem to move the overall plot along very much and it leaves the reader hanging (I think, I’m a bit confused with the “lost chapters”) which is a pet peeve of mine but I’m so invested in the series now it’s hard to stop, plus it’s full of those funny moments that I can’t get enough of which help me enjoy the book.

Sean Runnette is a top notch narrator and really adds to the enjoyment of the story.

The story has started to run ragged and astray

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would stick to the main plot line. I feel like the book kind of wanders off.

Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

Mike

Great series

This series was a wonderful read/ listen. Mark Tufo despite being a Devil Dog is able to create a gripping story. Rarely do I enjoy 90 hours of anything but the zombie fall out series worth the listen. The audio production was spot on and Sean Runnette's performance was amazing. Looking forward to reading more from Mark Tufo
