I consumed Zombie Fallout by Mark Tufo in audio book format. Zombie Fallout is the first book in the Zombie Fallout series and narrated by Sean Runnette. Zombie Fallout is an entertaining and engaging audio book and I will be moving forward with this series!
Zombie Fallout is a unique take on zombies and very character driven. By far one of my favorite things about this audio book / book is the way the characters felt. The internal dialog of Michael Talbot is epic. The journey Talbot takes in an attempt to keep his family safe, is not only action packed and filled with sarcasm, but also strangely beautiful and real. Adding to the depth of the story, we see glimpses of his flaws and flashes of real life struggles. The combination of these aspects made for a story that surpassed my expectations.
This wasn’t a “normal” zombie tale. The twists and turns kept me on my toes and I loved the air of mystery and unknown at the ending. The feel of something paranormal or beyond what one would expect from this genre.
Narrator: Sean Runnette is a good fit for this book and really nailed the tones and snark, enhancing my enjoyment of Zombie Fallout. I was a little reluctant at first, but by the end of the book I could not imagine Talbot or any other character NOT being the version Runnette presented.
