Most Helpful

Brutal and disturbing.

Pros: Book is well written, plot is okay, character development is excellent, narrator is great, and the Talbots make a cameo appearance.

Cons: Story is a bit disturbing, which can be a good or bad thing depending on how desensitized you are. Bashing a seven year old's face and head into a car dashboard, raping nuns, and mutilating women are elements I can do without. The character is so disturbing and brutal I felt mostly nauseas trying to get through the book. The character has no redeeming qualities and he does not apologize for that. He is a womanizer, rapist, murderer, and a psychopath.

This is no Zombie Fallout

Because I have listened to a handful of the Zombie Fallout series I obviously had expectations for Timothy. Boy was I wrong! Comparing Timothy to Zombie Fallout would be the equivalent of comparing apple to oranges, or my favorite comparison I could think of The Walking Dead TV show to the Brady Bunch. You think that’s a pretty extreme differentiation, yes I pulled out the thesaurus, well I don’t. I would consider the Zombie Fallout series about as family friendly as zombie books could be. Then there is Timothy taking two things we are already afraid of, clowns and zombies, add in a completely perversely deranged womanizing giant man as Timothy and you are left with an audiobook that is not for the faint of heart. My jaw dropped, I laughed out loud, I cringed, I wanted more and then it was over. I am now more scared of becoming a zombie than I ever was because just maybe I will know what is happening when I am devouring my father.

I find it funny how at ease Sean Runnette’s voice made me when I started this audiobook. It was like seeing an old friend after years of being separated. I think what I like most about Runnette is the fact that he doesn’t have the stereotypical super deep, super polished voice over guy voice. To me his voice make me think of the everyman, imperfect, and so perfect for a narration of another Tufo audiobook. I was surprise by how with ease Runnette seemed to be with this very violent, perverted and somewhat disturbing story. I am starting to see why Runnette has narrated most if not all of Tufo’s audiobook, the two are like peanut butter and jelly, perfect for each other.
