as riveting as the others

Zombie Fallout 10: Those Left Behind is as riveting as the others.  From day one, it has been clear that Mike Talbot is unique and is full of witty sarcasm.  He continues to hold the world and fate of his loved ones in his hands knowing that one mistake or judgment can bring it all crashing down around him.  We say goodbye to some longtime favorites and witness the return of some not so favorite people (will not spoil anything here).  BT proves himself more than capable of handling Knox in a hilarious yet unique manner then stepping aside so Mike and Knox can measure who has the biggest ... and most believable lie in a standoff.

I have watched Mark Tufo grow as a writer working his audience without mercy subjecting them to moments of humor, darkness and sarcastic wit.  He weaves his stories well and connects them expertly.  Tufo grows suspense even when you know what’s going to happen next because he puts a slight spin on it eliciting a “I really didn’t see that one coming” response. His characters continue to grow and show more of their true colors and intestinal fortitude.  Tufo has created and grown Talbot, BT, and Trip in many ways making them seem more life-like.    I would not be surprised to see Talbot, BT and Trip being selected, hands down, as the best folks to be stranded with in an apocalypse.

Tufo, as usual, keeps his listeners off-balance but this time with an unlikely frenemy that has turned over a new leaf ... Don’t miss this book, the darkness is beginning again but more intensely and with gripping action.  As a storyteller, Tufo is an artisan who hones his skills and books with precision – his internal dialogues are excellent and unfortunately for some of us – right on the money realism wise!

As usual the narrator, Sean Runnette takes the book and owns it Talbot style.  He draws the listeners in and holds them there with his talent and skill at projecting Mike, BT and the other characters to perfection.  His voice is clear and he drops Talbot witticisms skillfully, almost as if second nature.

There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobo

This is a must listen!

HILARIOUS AND GRIPPING!! UH OH THERE'S A CLIFFY!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Those Left Behind to be better than the print version?

Always is....Unless Sean can come and read it from the book for me, sitting on my couch...lol

What other book might you compare Those Left Behind to and why?

You cant compare Mark...Mark is a weirdo, and that is why us weirdo's love him!!!

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

Always Trip!!! lol Then Mike, Then Bt!!!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Oh this whole series needs a movie...or a tv show...Netflix Original Hulu...something!!! I would watch religiously!!!!

Any additional comments?

I love Mark Tufo...he not only is a talented author, he is a great person...his wife is too...she would have to be to deal with his craziness...lol And Sean Runnette IS the one and ONLY Mike Talbot!

The group is just barely making it...but they are survivors and Mike will always fight for his friends and family...The Beginning of this book with the Deneaux scene..WOW...I was Like SERIOUSLY? She is sooo evil...but I did not want that to happen to her...and she recovered like a champ..she really is cold blooded...and there is seriously something going on between her and Mike...they are developing a kind of kinship that is creepy crazy...and Trip is really communing with something supernatural..I think we may even see some sort of crossover universe happening here soon...

MAJOR CLIFFY ENDING!! LOL I know that makes some people angry...but I dont mind a cliffy...that just tells me the story isn't over yet, and that makes me very happy!!!

GREAT LISTEN AND SUPER COOL SERIES...I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT..AND EVERYTHING MARK TUFO WRITES..JUST 1 CLICK THEM ALL...THANK ME LATER!!!

Talbot is back !!! Loved this book!

I've listened to all the Zombie Fallout books and this might be the funniest one yet. Cannot wait for the next one to come out. Get the first and listen through, you will thank me later.

Another one for the record books!

And Tufo keeps them coming! Another fantastic installment into the Mike Talbot/zombie fallout timeline that is a must read or listen for any and all zombie fallout fans! Tufo is getting better and better as he goes! I just went back and listened to the whole series again and have to say you can really see him evolve as a writer from start to finish. The last three novels he has published (especially) have been well organized, elegantly written and highly entertaining. My only complaint is there isn't another one waiting. Read it! Listen to it! Whatever you choose! but whatever you do, DON'T PASS OVER IT!

Stop reading this and BUY IT NOW!

Would you consider the audio edition of Those Left Behind to be better than the print version?

Absolutely. I started the ZF series with ebooks and it is definitely better to have the audio. Sean Runnette is absolutely amazing. The voice I had for Mike in my head is vastly different than Sean's voice for Mike, but now I cannot unhear it. He does a great job giving a voice to one of my favorite fictional characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Those Left Behind?

Actually, the first scene with our favorite maybe villain, Denaux. It was just unspeakable and really gave me a new set of eyes regarding her. No spoilers, but it is not easy to read/ hear.

Which scene was your favorite?

Mike on the run with his sister. I felt real fear for the whole group. I almost felt their pain, everything was so vivid.

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

I didn't cry, but I did tear up a bit during one part that I can't mention as it's a big spoiler. Of course it made me laugh. There are few books that can elicit actual laughter from me when I read them (or listen to them), but books by Tufo ALWAYS do.

Any additional comments?

If anyone has any hesitation about buying a book in this series, don't. If you enjoy zombies and like to laugh you will love them. Start at book 1, but get them asap! This book is my favorite from this series so far. It was near constant action. Normally, that's awesome, but when you are so attached to these characters it's really not the best. I think I stayed worried the whole time because they stayed in trouble the whole time. The suspense was killer.

One of my FAVORITE series!

I love this series so much. Sean Runette does an amazing job with the narration. I love all of the tangent series off of this one. Mark Tufo is one of the best post-apocalyptic writers out there. I can't get enough of him! Keep cranking out the books! I can't wait for the next ones in each of the Michael Talbot stories!!!!

F***ing Mark Tufo!!!

Fucking Mark Tufo does it again people! He entraps you in the story line, gets your emotions tied into the book and what the Talbot group is going through and then it's over! It's fucking over!
Yes the book was good, yes Sean Runnette was as awesome as he always is but now I have to wait again. When? Who the fuck knows, but as long as Mark keeps cranking them out, I'll wait forever and a day. Good work Tufo.
