Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Audio
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. When a new vaccine against the latest incarnation of the H1N1 turns the majority of the population into flesh-eating monsters, blue collar Colorado family man and survivalist Michael Talbot—along with his family and an eclectic group of neighbors from the small gated community of Little Turtle—is forced to fight for his life against an ever-growing hoard of the living 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. A CreateSpace paperback. (March)

There are @5 books in this series i read one a day for five days.. I couldnt put it down for fear i was letting our hero Mike Talbot down. He and his family and friends drove me to stay up nights to finish.. I coyodnt sleep for fear of now knowing what was gonna happen next. An dthe zingy one liners and comic relief had mw in tears laughing until I had stomach cramps. The detail he puts in everything has you cringing and holding your breath. I recomend this book to anyone whom loves to laugh,cry, and cuss like a jarhead. Youll love this series, the people will become as real to you as your own family!!! Youll even learn the difference between an HK and an AK and a 30-06 ....

I can not believe how good this series is. I have so many books under my belt and thought I had some favorite authors...until i read the Zombie Fallout series, huge praise for Mark Tufo I am now a forever fan!

My husband and i loved it. We are zombie fans and this outlook was by far easier to believe. If the zombies start coming someone is going to be stuck in a less desirable place, and there is still going to be dog poo... just read it you will be on the edge of your seat and laughing with the thoughts and actions of the Talbolt's.

Mark Tufo has written an awesome book for all lovers of zombie fiction. This book has it all and more. Zombies, gore, terror, hysterical humor, and above all very real characters. The story grabs your attention from the first page and does not let you go even at the end because it makes you want to start on the second book immediately. The humor is very well placed throughout the book. It is funny and it is a very real way that many people deal with catastrophies in their lives. Again, I highly recommend this book and have already purchased the rest of the books in this series. Hopefully the author will continue this series and maybe start a new series of excellent zombie fiction. Hint, hint Mr. Tufo. Zombie fiction lovers will patiently be watching a waiting. Keep writing. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MARK TUFO IS A GREAT AUTHOR. I PUT HIM UP THERE WITH J.L. BOURNE AS FAR AS ZOMBIE NOVELS. I DONT LIKE TRYING NEW AUTHORS, BUT I READ THE REVIEWS ON THIS BOOK, TRIED THE SAMPLE AND WOW!!! AWSOME BOOK. ALOT OF DRAMA, EXCITEMENT, AND HIS MAIN CHARACTOR IS CONSTANTLY HAVING SIDE THOUGHTS AND THINKS HE IS GOING NUTTY. VERY FUNNY CONSIDERING THE DEAD ARE WALKING AROUND....AS IF ANYTHING COULD BE FUNNY ABOUT THAT? RIGHT? THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ZOMBIE FANS. HE LEAVES NOTHING TO QUESTION DURING THE TREK THROUGH THE DEAD WORLD. I KNOW ALMOST EVERYTHING ABOUT ZOMBIES AS IF THEY HAVE EVER EVEN EXISTED...RIGHT? A FEW TIMES I THOUGHT I CAUGHT HIM WITH A MESS UP IN THIS CLOSELY STUDIED FIELD, AND THEN BOOM HE COVERED IT AND IT MADE SENSE. I WILL READ THIS ONE A FEW MORE TIMES WITHOUT A DOUBT! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET THIS BOOK! 5 STARS IS A DISCREDIT TO MARK TUFO AND ZOMBIE FALLOUT, BUT THATS THE HIGHEST I COULD GIVE....

This book is the beginning of something amazing in a series that will keep you glued to your paper copy or Nook screen as well as your seat. From the beginning you become deeply involved in the characters and feel they are part of your life. It is non-stop roller-coaster ride of emotions and thrills. Mark Tufo is an incredible writer with a depth into the human condition that is uncanny.

I really enjoyed this book. Its adventurous and humorous and has just the right amount of zombies. The male characters in the book are written fantastic... however, I wonder if this author thinks women are shallow, worthless people. None of the women in this book are strong, well written characters..... they cant shoot a gun (someone didnt do their research on which gender is more likely to hit their target), they hide instead of fight, and they do a lot of screaming and crying. SMH. I hope as I read more of these books the author grows as a person and learns that women are capable humans...... and not just on an occasional off-beat moment where they are brave for a couple seconds.

Mark Rufo's ZOMBIE FALLOUT book series is riviting. Great characterization, story line, and zombie gore. I would have given this novel five stars but there are many punctuation and grammar errors. Sentences run into each other, making it confusing at times. Overall, one of my favorite books and series! ~ DO ~

I haven't finished reading this book, but I love it so far. It is an easy read and written in a casual, realistic tone. It can be quite funny at times, but is suspensful. If you enjoyed the movie Shawn of the Dead, you'll likely love this book too. My Nook cable broke and I haven't been able to read for several days, I have been anxiously waiting to read on. I would definitely recommend this book.

without a doubt, the first time I have ever laughed out loud while reading a zombie or apocalypse book ever. You've got your traditional zombie story with a twist, plus...this guys is just hysterical..AND scared the heck out of me.

The main character michael truly seems like how many people think they are like. The inner dialogue, the wittisms and just the near psychosis behavior reveals little parts of us. Tufo does an excellent job in bringing the reader into a zombie world with a character that just screams out to be hugged and psychoanalyzed. Enjoy.
