I do not want to do reviews of all the series, so I will have my say here about book 2 & 3. Don't worry, I won't post any spoilers.

This week I have listened to the audio book versions of books 2 & 3 and I have to admit I am really enjoying this series. Depending on how the series turns out I may have to rethink the 4/5 stars I gave books 1, 2 and 4, and give them all a 5/5 star rating.

Book 2 and its McDonalds story had me laughing my a** off and I had to pause it and regain my composure

Pulled back from the brink of death, Michael Talbot is determined to protect his loved ones against not only the zombie plague, which has taken over the planet but the threat that Eliza, the vampire holds. Even a reinforced military base may not be enough to keep her at bay. The government may have Humvees, heavy artillery and helicopters loaded with missiles, but Eliza has an ace up her sleeve. Talbot depends on Tommy to give him the right information at the right time, but their pop tart lovin ...more

I am afraid my interest in this series has declined with each book, though each one has managed character and plot revelation moments and enough of the humor to keep me moving on to the next installment. Some of the prose gets on my nerves, from the excessive dialogue tags with adverbs and actions to excessive time with the main character bemoaning smells and his germophobia. I bought the fourth book pretty soon after finishing this, partly because the ending was good in book three, but also bec ...more

The haters of this series crack me up almost as much as the books do. It's hard to imagine that there are zombie snobs out there, but...
I find Mike Talbot's narration of his often absurd tales of survival too much fun. I have listened to the audiobooks since book 1 and they couldn't have picked a better narrator to bring his (and all the other) characters to life.
If you're looking for a deep, dark scientifically accurate zombie tale, this series is not for you. But if you want an action-packed s

Can't get enough of the Talbot's and this series! Another fine addition to the collection. As always I went with the audiobook version of this one.

Once you get sucked into the story, you just can't put his books down, it's like reading someone's diary that you found in the attic..... from long ago.... You get so involved in the characters and when something happens its like watching a mixture between the greatest horror movie to the greatest action adventure movie ever made...except your picturing the story in your imagination, because your just so involved in the book! You are just gripping the edge of your seat and all tensed up waiting

Don’t let the title fool you. I think the series is up to seven books, not including the third half step. Michael’s zombie saga continues. Rather than provide a summary of what happens, go back, read the first book in the series, and enjoy. The crazy thing is that as much as I think I won’t like the next addition, I always do. It’s a solid 5 stars for me, because somehow, you can’t help but fall in love with the family and root for their survival. It’s zombie with a quirky twist. Yes, you should ...more

i love these books; very descriptive and emotional. i had to put it down a couple of times just take a breather, the events are so vivid. i love the final chapter, when he makes fun of the guy who found the first book and kept complaining about the grammar and misspelling. was this on purpose? lol. i'm thinking yes, considering his writing style. the first book might have some misspelled words and grammatical errors but the plot is really good and the story really does flow easily. bad spelling ...more

I'm still listening to this series on audible & loving it !
I can't believe this one is over already.. it seemed really short!!
another kick ass, HILARIOUS, zombie filled, action packed book by the one and only Mark Tufo! Book 3 was spent trying to evade Eliza.. there was some back story.. and quite a few shocking discoveries !!
I didn't enjoy this one as much as book 1 and 2.. but I'm glad I did listen to it because there was a lot of vital info revealed about characters and plot... downloa

Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout series just keeps getting better and better. A sense of humor and a deep streak of sarcasm help keep Mike Talbot (our very relucant hero) moving. That and the fact that if he let's anything happen to one of his kids, his wife will make the zombie hordes seem like girl scouts in comparrison.

If you haven't tried this series yet, you are really missing out. I read each one within a day because I have trouble putting them down. Action packed to the point that you find you

This one put me off the rest of them :(

I wasn't quite in for the supernatural twist to a zombie setting, and this was a bit much for me. Might pick up the series again later, but
Eliza just doesn't fit in anywhere, I don't even know why she's in it...

I can't wait to read the next in the series. This story gets better and better. Just when the reader thinks there is no way Mike could get out of the existing situation, he has some big huge luck thing happen to save him again. Always entertaining.

The End – Zombie Fallout book three by Mark Tufo is still entertaining, though errors are starting to come forward. Does this take away from the reading experience? Not really, it just raises a few questions concerning the editing phase. And as most of the work is written as 1st person past tense as if you are reading a journal, it is not something we need to really beat on (at this time).

I will say the 5% error ceiling is hit in this work and that means the editor needs to be better.

Okay, so here I am with the fourth book in succession. I am sort of admiring the writer for keeping the story going and keeping it very original. He also continues to introduce good characters that have their own very consistent traits. I am getting a little tired main guy's male crudeness, and his wife attitude is kind of unrealistic and also, in my opinion, pretty unattractive. The daughter is a waste, clearly only present to support a male perspective. She is neither weak nor strong and is th ...more

And The Hits Keep Coming alla Michael Talbot Style!

Book 3 was a worthy addition to the ongoing Fallout series. Ha, when i told my husband the name of the series, he asked, "We're the zombies falling out of the sky?" Somehow i think Mike would appreciate that bit. Tufo - you know what you are doing, please never stop cranking them out. I'm not sure you can stop with a character like Talbot in your head 24/7.

For fans - don't hesitate. Pick up book 1 of the series and hang on. Incredibly readable,

I just completed reading this book.
I have never enjoyed reading but for this book I found it tolerable. This book follows the Zombie Fallout series and the protagonist Michael Talbot and his family for the fight for survival in a post apocalyptic world were the reanimated eat flesh (zombies). In the second book, Michael Talbot and his friends and family were surrounded by thousands of zombies with no visible way out. In this one, we learn how they escaped, who tommy really is, and why Eliza is a

Thanx once again for all ur hard work Mr. Dad!,.. er, i mean Mr. Tufo

If u already thought about how there really aren't words to justifiably describe Mike Talbot, well just wait till u meet the rest of the Talbot bloodline. Anyways, this book finally gives some deeply craved knowledge into who\what Tommy is. An excellent chapter in the series, not one wasted page in the book... but i honestly expect nothing less from M. Tufo.

i understand being attached to Tommy, but my god, thousands have died at this point for him. why the absolute man crush? amso wayyyy too much vomiting. also i find it hard to believe almost every thing that happens spares Mike and his family. Also, i agree with the other likable females.

I'm Completely Hooked on this Series

I have read these first few books in just 2 days. I am hooked. Character development is superb! I am in love with Talbot and his family and can't get enough of their story. I highly recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of this genre. I am purchasing the next book in the series as soon as I hit submit on this review!

I just love this series! They books are fast and fun. One thing I can’t get over though is how unlikeable Tracy is. The biggest B out there. My guess is that the author didn’t intend to make Mike’s wife such a nag, ready to jump down anyone for even the slightest offense and that he instead thought Tracy would come off as a spunky feisty gal. I keep hoping for her demise. Makes me wonder if the author’s own wife is like Tracy.
