Yes! Yes! Yes! AWESOMENESS!

I have been experiencing Zombie Fallout withdrawal, I know that there are other Mark Tufo books and all of them scratches that itch of Tufo-ism I have needed but none compare to the epicness of Zombie Fallout with Mike, his family, BT + Tommy facing a Zombie Apocalypse and all that it entails.

I am a scientist at heart, a theoretical Chemist to be exact so I express myself well in the form of equation. I will use an equation to describe the narration:
Sean Runnette + Mark Tufo = Perfection!
That's just it.... Absolute PERFECTION. I don't know what fate put this author and this narrator together but to the powers that be... Thank you!

Now this book is just plain exciting... There are so many moments that you are at the edge of your seat... And if you are a true fan of the art of Tufo-ism then you find a couple references to other books in the Talbot Universe (Callis Rose reference the most obvious there) which is always a trip. You have that dry sarcasm teeming from Mike Talbot, the mismatched thought processes of Trip along with his poor wife who is just perpetually confused by her husband, the downright brutish nature of BT, the crafty and hard to kill Mrs. Denou.... With the death of Eliza, Mike has to find a new quest and the quest here is simply to find a cure for his son and his best friend. This book was the nice combination of action as well as plot development.

The book put me in a rather peculiar conundrum.... One where I couldn't help but make my way through this title, and also definitely not wanting it to end. It ended all too soon for me.... There will be more though. Thankfully there will be more! So my only problem with this title is..... I have to wait for book 8.

Disappointed with unfinished feeling.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

First let me say I love this series. Mark Tufo is a freakin genius and Sean Runnette's narration is awesome. But this book left me with an unfinished feeling unlike the rest in the series. I enjoyed this book as much as the rest, but it left me feeling like I was watching great movie and the power went out. I had to double check that I didn't accidentally skip the end of the book some how. I hate the feeling of having to buy the next book to find out the end of a story. I never felt that way with all the other books in this series.

Not my favorite of the series but still...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

All Mark Tufu's books are time well spent..absoutely

If you’ve listened to books by Mark Tufo before, how does this one compare?

This is not my favorite of the series because he corrupted the characters in this book. He emasculated BT, made DeNo important, made Tommy the tamest vampire in the world and the doctor filled with hate. Dennis was introduced as a guy capable of anything but just follows DeNo around like a lapdog..what the f!

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

He has just enough smartass and badass for the role!

Do you think Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Oh yeah, he has got to fix this!

Any additional comments?

Mark Tufo is capable of sooo much more. Please order his other books!! You wont regret it.

hibernation does a zombie good!

Any additional comments?


i must admit i was a little leery about the direction of the story now that eliza has been killed. i mean what could be worse than a vampire with mind control powers over zombies having a serious grudge against you? so, i was a little puzzled by publisher's summary, "What he does not know is that an old foe has risen up and a more insidious threat has emerged to not just the Talbots but all of humanity." so yes, i had to google the word, insidious, just to make sure i knew exactly what it meant. i can admit that AND still keep my man card. LOL now that i think about it, wanting to know exactly what insidious means probably has more to do with my obsession with this series. at first, i thought an enemy more insidious than eliza? no way! but after i looked it up, i realized i only knew a partial meaning of the word. after learning the full meaning of insidious and listening to the story, i now agree with the publisher's summary. eliza is not insidious. heck, she'd drive a dump truck full of zombies through the word! no, i'm not going to tell you what it means. go google it. i'm not your mother.

"huh? what? take my pills?" sorry for the tangent folks. the adhd must be kicking in. LOL i'm supposed to be writing a review of the story, right? ok...on with the show...

overall, the story is very entertaining. it's more of the same- the mike and bt comedy hour, but what's new is who occasionally gets in on it- tommy! no, you're not drunk or high! yes, you're reading that right. tommy gets in some zingers. and that's one of the surprising parts of this book. tommy has changed again. in this book, he's a b@d@$$, and it was kewl to see him let loose.

the story is mostly told from mike's perspective, but interspersed b/ween his journal entries are tripp's story and mrs. deneaux's story. yes, the b!tch everybody loves to hate is still alive and doing her worst. oh will i savor it when she gets her comeuppance! believe it or not, tripp is even zanier in this book than in the previous one.

milk does a body good! so does hibernation! well, at least for zombies. good for them but not for mike and company. early to bed, early to rise makes a man, healthy, wealthy, and wise. well, hibernation does a zombie good in a really bad way for mankind. with eliza roasting over the coals, romero has left the building.

i won't say what they are, but there are a few plot threads that finally get tied together in this book. the weaving together of these threads reveals the insidious threat the publisher describes. so, not all is well in zombieland. this direction makes me a wee bit squeamish. but it won't stop me from downloading the next installment. speaking of which, the ending of this story is very abrupt, even for a tufo novel.

as for narration, i have 1 word, "runnette." 'nuff said. btw, i finally googled him, and he looks nothing like i imagined.

I'm afraid to say it...

...but it wasn't my favorite of the Talbot Family saga.

*Dodging stones*

It felt a bit rushed. Sure, I loved hearing more from the Talbot family, BT and the return of Trip but when I heard "This is the conclusion of the audio book..." I literally said out loud, "That's it?" I literally scrubbed back to see if I had accidentally missed a few chapters.

When I run out of audiobooks to binge upon, I'll revisit this and see if my opinion remains the same.

Cringe-worthy dialogue killing story....

Is there anything you would change about this book?

After listening to 7 books in this series, I can't help but admit my interest level has been chipped away by the horribly cheesy dialogue- especially that written for the main character. I've noticed this with other novels: for some reason, weak dialogue you would skim right past while reading- seems way more painful to listen to when read aloud. The relentless, forced dopiness of Mike is wearing me thin.

I can get past the authors tortured metaphors, but the dialogue is so distracting that it's taking away from an otherwise entertaining series.

The other painful aspect of this story specifically is the over-the-top ridiculousness of the "Trip" story line. It would have actually been a fun single CHAPTER.... but making him a recurring story arc was a horrible decision. It's painful to listen to.

And the last frustration is the overuse of flashbacks to Mikes early life. They are superfluous to the story and really give me the feeling that the author is once again adding useless filler to stretch the story out longer than it should naturally be.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Tufo again?

My interest in waning.... and I LOVE this genre. I will start the next book, but if it the shortcomings of this book continue- it will be my last.

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

At first, I really enjoyed his performance. Actually, I still think he's doing a great job, but he's being forced to read some pretty horrific dialogue.

Great Series but Half a Book

I absolutely loved the series, and have also started the Lycan books too (maybe too early), and this book is no exception to the quality of both the story and the Sean Runnette's narration.

The big negative I found was that it reminded me of the Twilight movies, where the last version was split in two to drag the story out, which may or may not have been the case, as the public were no doubt eager to get Mark's new chapter, but the story suddenly ended and left me wanting.

I think I would have been happy to wait another six months for the complete story (of this chapter anyway), and certainly hope that the second half of the book comes out soon.

great narration...getting tired of the gore

I enjoy the storyline and narration. The descriptive gore is getting a little old and boring. It feels like the author is using the gore descriptions just to fill out the book.
