I saw this book on a list of Best Science Fiction of the 21st Century. I've never thought of zombie novels as science fiction, but there are several on the sci fi lists, so maybe I'm the anomaly. In any case, Zombie Fallout had great ratings on goodreads, and the audio book was available for download from my local library, so I thought I'd give it a try.
After listening to it, I'd say it's a better fit for horror than sci fi. Even if it is sci fi, it doesn't b ...more
I gave Zombie Fallout a chance purely because it was free and it was highly rated on GR but now I realise it's a 'love it or hate it' type of book and I didn't like it. I found it boring, at time it made me feel queasy, the attempt at humour grated on my nerves and the whole thing left me feeling puzzled and asking 'why is this book so highly rated and praised?'
I had to admit defeat after reading the latest vomit inducing descriptions about worms and maggots inside grotesquely shaped, Da ...more

Zombie Fallout is the first in a series and begins just after the plague starts. It is written in the form of a journal, which is narrated by the main character, Michael Talbot. Mike is forced to become the Man of the Hour when an untested H1N1 vaccine turns thousands into the walking dead. He’s healthy, he’s strong, h ...more
I really can't understand all the good reviews of this book. The writing was horrible... inconsistent, juvenile in many cases, and packed full of grammatical errors. There were cultural references that were simply wrong... saying that the American Expres ...more

Talk about a major let down.
I did not enjoy this book at all, and was, in fact, close to DNF'ing it (something I only very, very, very rarely do), at less than 20% in. I stuck with it in the hopes that it would get better.
The humor was juvenile (fart/poop jokes galore), OTT, mean-spirited at times (fat jokes...so many fat jokes) and downright homophobic** and se ...more
Mark Tufo has taken a slightly unorthodox approach in his presentation. The story takes on ...more
I really do like the narrative voice of the main character, Michael Talbot. As a military guy I can relate, and the really funny bit is that Mike is a zombie fan in the novel. So unlike some stories where apparently all the characters are dumbfounded that zombies exist, with no knowledge of the lore and stories that surrou ...more
At first I thought this book was well written and that it was using sarcasm and obvious metaph ...more
I was hoping for another good zombie series like Mira Grant's Newsfeed series. This is definitely NOT it. The characters were less than deep, the women even more stereotypical than others. The plot was choppy, with enough holes to drive Mr. Tufo's jeep through. The humor was of the Adam Sandler variety, so if you like that then it's got that going for it.
I listened to the audio book ...more
This story is really funny and only a bit gross in places (best not to be eating whilst reading).
I would recommend the audio version as it is narrated to it's full comical effect - very entertaining read.
Imagine Clark W. Griswold, Jr. as a clumsy ex-Marine survival enthusiast, then place him and his family in a fairly cozy zombie apocalypse. As good as that sounds as a premise, the execution left a lot ...more
This did at first. A pretty good character and a plot that at least isn't a carbon copy of all the others (though I have seen the idea used ...more
