I couldn't take my earphones off once I started this series and cannot wait for the rest of this series to come along, if there is some.
I would recomend these stories to other listeners.
I am currently listening to Indian Hill again with my partner on long journeys. I had no idea Mark Tufo was planning another, let alone that it was written, so I was very excited to get hold of this book. Not that I ever doubted him, but Tufo did it again! I really enjoyed this tale. Set five years after the end of IH3, it catches us up and takes us forward. The themes explored in this book are as harrowing as in the original three and mirror some pretty terrible moments in human history. I like this about these books.
There are some hilarious moments, one of which will stay with me for a very long time and with Sean Runnette's delivery, this is an entertaining listen. I couldn't recommend this audiobook enough. Enjoy!
Mark Tufo is an incredible author. Shaun Runnette is Mike Talbot.
Fun and well paced story telling. I feel so close to the characters and love the alternate reality idea. Been quite a ride to get to book 4. For me the most intriguing part is the switch in allegiances, this is heartbreaking (as far as fiction can be).
Mark Tufo is a master at his art, thank you!
Maybe but more excited about IH5 :)
IH reminds me of a few films i saw about human champions vs off world champions very close to them indeed but Mark Tufo builds on this and takes the story on and with great humour takes each IH book forward.
Yes i think Sean is one of the best narrators on Audible and he really keeps you into the story.
Indian Hills 4 lol
A really great book where Mike Talbot keeps going from crisis to crisis but with humour that will make you laugh and laugh whilst being totally absorbed into the story.
"THE BEST ONE YET!!!!"
I only say yes because I Love Sean Runnette!
The depth of the main characters commitment and loyalty to his family and friends. This series is so different from anything I have ever read. I never know what is going to happen next. I have listened to so many books that I have been able to figure out what was going to happen long before the story was over. I like to be surprised and Mark Tufo isn't afraid of the road less traveled. IH 4 stopped at the perfect moment and I can't wait for IH 5!!!
EVERYTHING!! He is my all time favorite narrator! He was born to be Mike Talbot!
There are to many to count. I laughed out loud several times, said NO, NO, NO, and cried several times!
"Amazing Talbot adventure"
Right there at the top with the rest of Mark Tufo's books
The descriptions of friendship between Mike and his Big Green friend and their banter with one another always gets me.
Sean Runnette has been the voice of Michael Talbot, and many other Mark Tufo books, for so long, I honestly can't imagine anyone else doing it justice.
I laughed so hard other people on the road looked over to see what the heck I was doing.
Mark Tufo does it again. His continued chronicles of Michael Talbot weave an extraordinary adventure of excitement and trepidation in this, yet another wild ride, which I can not get enough of. Thank you Mark, and please keep writing.
"How could I not listen"
About three years later Mike and Tracy are married and have a son, 2 1\2 year old Travis. “D” lives close by and visits often. Things have been quiet for a while. The calm before the storm.
This series just keeps getting better and better. You got to worry about Mike. He is so nice and friendly but watch out he has a dark side. Paul, his best friend and Leader of the country wants him on a photo shoot. Beth, now Paul’s wife, is still thinks she can seduce Mike. I would really like to ring her neck.
Mark has developed his characters very well. The banter between Mike and D is soooo funny. Just like good friends would kid each other.
Mike and Paul are having problems, mostly because of Beth’s undermining their relationship.
The storm hits and Tracy and Mike are separated. Mike in the hospital, again, and Tracy on the battlefield. One thing leads to another and it looks like the end again. Treachery by the aliens and humans alike. Things go from bad to worse and then even worse. A twist toward the end. Should have seen it coming.
Again for this book I had the audio version. Got to tell you that Sean is fantastic as the narrator . He brings the book to life with his various voices. The whole audio was totally enjoyable. Clear and clean recording without any distractions or static.
If you like aliens, war and comic relief you have got to get this series. Oh, and this is not the last book.

"Just keeps getting better!"
I thought the first book was too oppressively dark and had to force myself to keep listening to the series. By book two, I was glad I had kept going. It's been classic Mike Talbot ever since and seems to get better with each installment.
This one had me laughing out loud before the end of the first sentence, I think--certainly the first paragraph. There's plenty of action and suspense for those who like it, always balanced by Mike's wit and banter with others.
If you've read a lot of Tufo, you've probably already figured this out, but I'll say it anyway. The various Mike Talbot series' are pretty much mutually exclusive. I had read the available Zombie Fallout books first, and expected this series to be the adventures of young Mike before the zombies. I couldn't have been wronger.
It seems as if Mark Tufo had several completely different adventures that he imagined himself in over the years, and now he has stuck Mike Talbot in his place, (hey, I just noticed they even have the same initials) and is writing them up. I think that is way cool, especially since I have a similar situation inside my own head, but I'm not writing about mine.
"I MISS MIKE ALREADY"
Mike kicks butt :)
I like how things are changing between mike and his best friend paul..Not knowing why things are happening or if paul is behind it is making the book a very enjoyable read
All of it :) If i wrote a book i'd get him to voice mine
Yes, but i love all of tufos books :) ZF is my fav but the other books just add other spins and mike is awesome in zombies or alien books
I hve to wait for the next one now :( and ZF8....
"Give me more"
I listen to all of Mark's books multiple times and I own ALL of his books.
Talbot of course, Mark makes him real not like some other writers where there heroes seem super human.
He brings every character to life in my mind.
"BEST ONE YET!!! DYING FOR #5 NOW!!!"
Its fabulous....all Mark's books are!!!
Mike, then D, Then BT!!!
When D, escapes with Travis, and When Mike meets BT!!!
I laughed a LOT!!! I cried a little, and I screamed and cussed Beth and Paul a ton!!!! lol
Ok I have to say it...Beth has GOTTA GO!!! And I wont cry if Paul does too....This was the best book of this series so far...I have liked them all, but this one just hit the right pitch finally and flowed like a Mike book should, I think its because Mikes character has grown into the Michael Talbot us readers are familiar with, and when he is with Tracy its just right...I love D, I want to be his friend, he is the coolest Alien I have ever read...and now BT! Woohoo!! All we need now is a Trip appearance and I will feel complete...I could not put this book down...I want and need more...good thing its less than a month till #5!! 2 huge thumbs up and a highly recommend!!!!!!
"Sarcasm at its best"
Love the characters and the sarcastic humor!
who else gotta be Michael
He does a fantastic job every time
Yeah this guys gonna save the world. .
Love the story can't wait for book 5
"Start from the Beginning"
If you haven't read/listened to the Zombie Fallout books, start there. The Characters are phenomenal and the development of each "alternate reality" is fun. One might think it a bit hoakey but I am just glad to be able to follow Mike along on another fun, blundering adventure.
Unfortunantely! I wish they would just keep going! It is getting painful to wait for the next book. :-)
Mr. Tufo, please keep them coming! You style and humour are wonderful!
"Great Story Continues!!"
I love the first three Indian Hills books, maybe more then Zombie Fallout. I was happy to see Mark Tufo return to the story where it left off. The 4th installment picks up where the third ended and while a great listen is a little off from the first three. None the less I love the adventures of Mike Talbot and gang. I often find myself laughing out loud and love how Tufo is able to take the same group of characters and put them in completely different stories. The lap-overs are always nice to see and bring back memories of the other stories. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing Michael's next story. As always Sean Runnette rocks, I could not image Mark's books without him.
