This was a break in the storyline from before, in the same vein and world of course but in a different time. This one happens years before the first three and tells you what happened to bring about the inevitable Zombie invasion. It was done very well, writing, narration and all. I find this title necessary actually if you want to truly understand the entire series.

Any additional comments?
The short answer is 'NO', this is not worth the credit to me. It 'should' be a gift with books 1-3 or a prologue to Book 4. It feels like a total and complete cash grab.
So, I paid the $10.
I did spend the first 15 minutes wondering if I downloaded the wrong book. It manages to sort itself out and is an odd, but nice back story addition to the series.
When I completed chapter 1 of "ZF4" I appreciated "ZF3.5" a little more and felt it was a "must read' for me as a part of fully enjoying the series.
Perhaps, I'm picking nits..but I still don't see it as a good value. This novella capitalizes on Tufo's readership unfairly...

felt a bit cheating as this is only a short story and cost 1 credit and probably easily fit in next episode but like the story overall.

What did you like best about Zombie Fallout 3.5? What did you like least?
It was good to hear from some of the other characters whom play a part in the Zombie fallout story and very interesting to hear exactly how the virus began and although it is a typical [in Zombie story terms at least] 'roll your eyes at how stupid people can be' approach, it is a little different. Learning the reason for the zombie virus is probably reason enough to listen to this book although why it is 3.5 not 0.5, I'm not sure, you could read this one at any time during the series I think.
If you do read this one in order, between book 3 and book 4 [as I did], there are just enough familiar and unfamiliar references to keep things interesting. I strongly dislike reading spoilers in reviews so I'll keep this as generic as possible. The main new character in this book with the annoying moniker - Dr. Hugh Mann [p'shaw] is a real outsider, so incredibly rude and dismissive of all other people, very driven, to the point that his health and well-being suffer greatly, only his daughter and 'his' cat have any chance of ever getting any sense out of him and even that is a struggle. It is very interesting to learn about his small family particularly his son-in-law to be, one of many people the good doctor seems to constantly forget about as soon as they are out of his sight.
Other, more familiar people also appear in parts of this book, some in slightly different ways to that which we are used to, others exactly as you like them.
Overall, if you are a fan of the ZF series then you really have to have this although at just under 3 hours, if you buy on audible, don't use a credit, that would be very poor value.
If you’ve listened to books by Mark Tufo before, how does this one compare?
This is clearly a Mark Tufo book, if you like his stuff, this won't change your opinion, if you don't, why are you still reading this?
Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Like most people who enjoy this series on audible I believe Sean Runnette is Talbot, I can no longer imagine him with any other voice. If ever a movie is made and the main character does not sound like Sean, it would be a major disappointment.
Did Zombie Fallout 3.5 inspire you to do anything?
Yes, I immediately went out and bought a microscope...
