The second installment of the Zombie Fallout series most definitely did not disappoint. The first title leaves you essentially salivating for more with the way it ended and I can assure you this will do the same. It would appear that the author of these books, Mark Tufo, is a fan of ending these titles at a stage that just leaves you craving for more (I somewhat hope that by the time I listen through all the books the other installment would be out).
A number of other characters were brought to the fore here during this book, as well as a number of interesting twists where the zombies are concerned. The entire Talbot family all goes through varying degrees of changes through this one but once again seeing the world through the eyes of Mike Talbot in this post-apocalyptic world is probably the most enjoying part of this. I really do agree with him that he needs to be checked out after all this and I don't particular mean because of the traumatic experience of being hunted by Zombies, clearly his issues are far deeper routed but yet it makes for a HILARIOUS listen.
Sean Runnette is perfection in this title especially where he depicts Mike Talbot (the main character). I honestly believe you would be hard pressed finding anyone who could do anything better than what he did in this title. He simply made it a joy to listen to...
Two Thumbs Up for AWESOMENESS!
On to the next one....

BUT PARDON THE PUN
I have given four stars to Calis Rose and Timothy. I think I gave three stars to Zombie Fallout book one. I like Mark Tufo, but I hate this character. Every single line is a middle school joke or pun. I might have laughed once in seven hours. It was like a 1970 sitcom without the laugh track. JEAN LOOKED SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED. If there was a story, I totally missed it. I have gotten bored with a lot of books, but this one made me mad and the longer I listened the madder I got. I had to quit listening to let my blood pressure settle. I have a sense of humor, I love Richard Kadry's Sandman Slim and Maberry's Joe Ledger. They are both characters who make continual wise cracks and I laugh. Talbot is just annoying.

Another cracking book from the author! The second installment of the Zombie Fallout series sees the Talbot family and friends escape from Little Turtle, only to find more death and destruction everywhere they go. As they begin their life 'on the run', the characters unfold. You learn more about Mike's life 'pre-zombie' (the MacDonalds anecdote is rather entertaining). And Justin's character takes an interesting, sinister turn: Unsettling to say the least!
For such a gruesome storyline, Mark Tufo's series is a right little rib-ticker! I mainly listen to fantasy and post-apolalyse books so I don't often come across humour. And I certainly wouldn't have thought a gory zombie storyline would be the one that had me chuckling here and there.
Having said that, for the faint hearted - a warning: This book is definitely full of blood and guts. Moreso than the other zombie stories I've read / listened to. Let's just say that it's probably not what I would choose to listen to lull me off to sleep if I wanted a nice, calming, nightmare-free slumber. ;0)
What you do get though, is another great roller-coaster of a ride. Like the first book, I was never bored at any point. The characters are great - especially the loveable Tommy with his pop tarts, and the 'gassy' dog, Henry.
This book gets a big thumbs up from me. I really love Mark Tufo's witty writing and he certainly knows how to keep the pace up. I, for one, look forward to listening to the next book in the series. If you haven't read book one first, do yourself a favour and read that one first - it will make the book that much more enjoyable (and explain a few things too)!
