Publisher's Summary

Millions died when the Enillo Virus swept the earth. Millions more were lost when the victims of the plague refused to stay dead, instead rising to slaughter and feed on those left alive. For survivors like John Talon and his son Jake, they are faced with a choice: Do they submit to the dead, raising the white flag of surrender? Or do they find the will to fight, to try and hang on to the last shreds of humanity?

Just Awful

I don't expect astounding literary skills when I buy a zombie-fiction. That being said, this book should have been titled "White Flag of the Author: The Fall of the Thesaurus".
The plot was cookie-cutter. The characters were so shallow that it seemed the even other characters didn't care who lived or who died, much less the author or this reader.
The author pretty much wrote a checklist of stuff he's read in other books, and chucked them into chapters with no buildup or continence. For example, a supporting character is killed. The protagonist is devastated in one sentence, then joking around in the very next.
The character backgrounds (what little was given) were predictable and the big showdown was so cheesy I think an 11 year old actually wrote it.
The writing itself was horrible as well. Sentences like "Chad and I were up planning and came up with a plan" litter the book. I lost count at how many times the same word was used twice in a dialogue sentence. The narrative was filled with a lot of "I can't be bothered to write details" stuff like "[Some character] and I walked to the [place]. We didn't talk because we were each lost in our own thoughts." "We gathered such things as we could find, and such".
The few times the author broke out his thesaurus were completely awkward to the story as well. The protagonist suddenly starts narrating with metaphor and thought provoking prose in the middle of a wrestling match with zombie, for instance. Then relapses back into Neanderthal-speak once the action is over.


All in all, the book was horrible.

good Ole zombie fiction a great listen

nothing special about the story it follows the tried and true last guy standing gathers followers exacts revenge and makes people's life safe, is it boring? not at all if your going to stick to the formula make you character lockable and that's what the author has done. the narrator is great and really fits the hero. overall it is worth your zombie fix.

Really Enjoyed

I found this really interesting and at times made me laugh as the characters are witty.

I went from just going to check out a few mins to listening for 6 hours straight.

I'm definitely going to buy the other books in the series.

Well worth it.

Characters had no, err character!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I really couldnt get into the characters. There was no connection with them and they were dull

Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph Talluto again?

Definitely not

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Graham Halstead?

The narrators voice irritated me, kind of nasally. I would have preferred someone that gave the characters distinct voices from the others

Can't wait for the next one!

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the main character and the story line flowed really well.

The narration was great and easy listening.
