I like Mark Tufo and I really do like Zombie Fallout as a series, I really do! But... Zombie Fallout 5: Alive in a Dead World felt like a whole lot of stalling by Mark Tufo. There was some headway made in the general progress of the story of course but the headway that was made was very small where the general plot is concerned.
I've said it before and I'll say it again one of the main reasons that the book series is as enjoyable as it is is of the little quirks that Mike Talbot have and the myriad of interesting characters in the book. Mike's quips with... well anyone and his incredibly short attention span makes it a trip when reading from his portions. Mike's best friend in the book seems downright hopeless to me... Mrs. Deno... She's an... interesting one... I can also add a couple others who I all find fascinating and who brings something to the book.
I must say though that where this book is concerned the author drags his foot along a lot. A big portion of the book's plot are a series of seemingly useless flashbacks (I kid you not, they seem completely and utterly useless to me except for providing some fodder to maybe laugh at). There was also a huge emphasis on Mike growing into his new powers. In the grand scheme of things though, I would say that probably one or two really note worthy things happen in this book (both of which I found just plain gruesome even for a Zombie book... I mean.... I am shocked and not in a good way...). Both occurrences could have been fit in the other book prior to this. And to add insult to injury.... this book more than any other ends in a MASSIVE cliff hanger. I really don't understand how or why Mark Tufo would do that... I was quite disappointed.
The narration was great, Sean Runnette did an awesome job again and aided in me being able to make it through this book.
I will get book 6 as soon as it comes out no doubt, if only to know how everything turns out. The narration is great, the story was lacking if you ask me though but the humor was still very prevalent which made the book enjoyable none the less.

I am very hesitant wgen purchasing books. Looking into every detail as to not scuander my money or coveted points on a bad purchase. Yet the zombie fallout series has done nothing but tickled my fancy and kept my interest.

I love Mark Tufo's books but I found this one hard. I still enjoyed it and I am going to listen to the rest of his books. I found the part on the cats very hard to listen to.

the story keeps on growing and evolving. a truely different zombie novel the writer really captures the struggle in Talberts life with characters you learn to love. the narrators voice draws you on and makes you feel event heartbeat of the characters through their trials and tribulations in one word epic!!!!!!!
