It was a flu season like no other. With the H1N1 virus running rampant throughout the country, people lined up in droves to try and attain one of the coveted vaccines. What was not known was the effect this largely untested, rushed to market, inoculation was to have on the unsuspecting throngs. Within days, feverish folk throughout the country convulsed, collapsed, and died, only to be reborn. With a taste for brains, blood, and bodies, these modern-day zombies scoured the lands for their next meal. Overnight the country became a killing ground for the hordes of zombies that ravaged the land.
This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.
Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy's powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie queen? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family, together with the remnants of a tattered community, must fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all.



"Once you read the first few pages of Zombie Fallout, you're in for the series." (John Ramsey Miller, author of The Last Family)
“The word lighthearted doesn’t usually come to mind when we think of the zombie apocalypse, but Sean Runnette does a skillful job balancing humor with horror in this audio edition, which makes for an entertaining stroll with the walking dead…Runnette gives Talbot a dry, I-knew-this-was-going-to-happen-to-me-someday attitude that captures the wry spirit of Tufo’s prose. This provides a welcome departure from the doom and gloom of most zombie tales, and Runnette wrings plenty of chuckles from the material. Still, the narrator doesn’t forget that this is an apocalyptic horror story, making sure there are plenty of chills and thrills along the way.” ( Publisher’s Weekly)

Abominable disappointment

Clunky, primitive writing style plagued by painfully unfunny attempts at comic relief. A zombie puking alphabet soup would undoubtedly create a better literary work than this.

The audiobook performance is simply atrocious. To be fair, I guess regardless of how elegantly you try to spew out waste matter, it's still gonna stink.

Ich habe mir dieses Hörbuch runtergeladen, ohne zu wissen, daß es eine Komödie ist. Daher war ich etwas erstaunt über den Ton der Geschichte.

Doch auch wenn man darüber hinwegsieht, daß es eine Komödie ist, fallen doch einige Sachen auf. So verhalten sich einige Charaktere absolut unlogisch und unnatürlich, nur um Witz rüberzubringen. So kann leider streckenweise keine wirkliche Atmosphäre aufgebaut werden.

Die Geschichte ansich ist einigermaßen interessant, auch wenn mir persönlich der Hauptcharakter Mike absolut nicht zugesagt hat.

Der Vorleser ist auch gewöhnungsbedürftig und es hat einige Zeit gedauert, bis ich mich an ihn gewöhnt hatte. Er schafft es leider meist nicht, verschiedene Charaktere stimmlich umzusetzen.

Alles in allem hatte ich mir mehr von diesem Buch versprochen, wer auf wirklich ernsthafte Zombiegeschichten aus ist, wird hier nicht fündig, sondern sollte sich Bücher wie "Dead of Night" oder "The Walkind Dead" zu Gemüte führen.
