Superb finale to a brilliant series

Mark Tufo has written a character that you can relate to on so many levels. The humour is just brilliant and set against an undertone of horror that puts it in stark relief. You will go from being nervous for the characters on minute to actually laughing out loud on the next page.



If you opt for the audiobook (I listen each day on my journey to work) I have to say that Sean Runnette's voice is simply perfect for the main character. Couldn't have imagined it read better.



I wholeheartedly recommend the entire series, and its is so refreshing to have a finale that as well as fitting with the overall story line (and not letting everything down at the last minute) actually does conclude the story. Too many writers feel they have to leave a hook or a loose end which leads on to the story never really coming to a conclusion. This one has "the right end" and concludes the story.



The most enjoyable series of books I've read in a very long time!

The last but not the least

Excellent novel. So many great characters that have been built up over the entire series. Their personas have been cleverly and lovingly crafted so that their successes an losses are keenly felt by the reader. An unexpected ending. The narration is excellent: a comfortable friend is reading to you by the fireplace in a darkened room with the lights dimmed low. If you want to read this book you absolutely must buy the entire series and start at the beginning, it's worth the investment.

The Best one so far

So far in this Zombie Fallout series this is the best one. Great new characters like John the Tripper LoL , that guy was soooo funny. And many more that really brought this to life. I literally listened to this in 24 hours 'i think' the end part could have went into more detail and origin about the vampire woman. But all in all pretty good

Good finale to an Epic series

Have really enjoyed this collection of books and this was a good finale to the series. I know that there are other books after this however would seem that will start another adventure. This ties up most questions and loose ends. I would say listen in order from book 1. I love Value for money and this delivered.

It's more like Z-nation than The Walking Dead if you are a zombie fan and I really hope that this is made into a series. I will return to this series again in the future.

Series Back on Track

Yes! Yes! Awesomely Yes! From start to finish this books was amazing! The series isn't finished yet (I hope) but one chapter seems to be closed. There is so many things that Mark Tufo has gotten right in this one once more.

If you have been following the series (which I am guessing if you are looking at this review you have been) then you would probably have been slightly disappointed by book 5. Thank the powers that be the book has got back on track in book 6. The book is teeming with action and (unlike the precious book) does not have meaningless flashbacks. Mark Tufo seems to have been listening to my silent prayers after I finished book 5 and ramped up the action in every aspect.

Sean Runette is an excellent narrator and he kept up the great work. I am very very much satisfied!

To prevent myself from giving any away I will stop raving about the book. I am extremely thankful that the book has answered so many unanswered questions and have rejected the inclination to end on too big of a cliff hanger although I must say I was gripped up until the last sentence.

Why do I like this series?

The Zombie Fallout series is riddled with plot holes and inconsistencies. It is in desperate need of a good editor before it reaches publication. So why do I keep listening? The characters and the narration. Sean Runnette is the perfect embodiment of Michael Talbot and does an excellent job with all the characters. And Tufo has really given life to the characters in the book. We care about what happens to them.

Some are saying this is the last in the series, but I haven't seen any confirmation by Tufo on that and there are a lot of loose ends that need resolving. The Zombies still abound. I feel confident there will be a book 7, and I will gladly spend a credit on it.

Too much “WOE IS ME” crap.

I’ve been loving the series but I got annoyed at the epilogues in the last 2 books. Part of this one is exact, WORD FOR WORD, of Mike meeting Eliza in the field from book one. Why? I also really just can deal with “me, me, me crap.” Mike, get a hold on it! I found myself rolling my eyes!! More than once. Also, the Talbot-isms in previous book were cute, but cap those things to 3...why were 6 necessary??? I sort of feel like this was really drug out to meet the correct amount of words/chapters. I’ll buy the next book, too, but I sure hope Mike is a little less self-obsessed.

heavy flash backs

This story seemed to take longer to get through. Lots of flashbacks and author asides. There were some that really didn't feel like they were moving the story forward, but perhaps this might be remedied in the next book where it gets tied in.

ACTION PACKED HORROR

I have to say this is my favorite Talbot book so far. I have never laughed, gripped my seat and gasped, and cringed so hard listening to a book before.

Mike is separated from his family and begins a long journey back. Thinking he is dead the family begin to prep for the LAST STAND. Along the way Mike comes across a burned out hippie and a mysterious women. The funniest moments in the book was the dialog and circumstances the burned out hippie and Mark have. There is one moment I had grit my teeth and shut my eyes during a very CLAUSTROPHOBIC situation.

Brilliant and talented series!!!!

satisfying ending...i think

Any additional comments?


where to start? for me, there's a mix of fear and excitement reading or listening to the last book in a series, hoping the conclusion will match the overall excellence of the series. so, did this book meet my expectations? yes and no.

the pros:

the good news. mark tufo is back! i didn't really like book 5 as much as the others, but this book is reminiscent of the others with a big dose of humor. some of that humor comes from mrs. deneaux. yes, the b!#*ch everyone loves to hate is featured prominently as she, bt, and gary flee north carolina for maine. while not politically correct myself, her stereotypical humor borders racism. i found it funny. most probably will b/c tufo likes to push boundaries, which is totally acceptable to me. speaking of "pc," most "pc" people probably couldn't have made it through book 1. LOL

speaking of mrs. deneaux. mark tufo is just as bloodthirsty of a killer as her. wow! the characters he kills in his novels. bet you don't see the 1st one coming.

i really liked and laughed at is a new character, john the tripper. his house is tin foiled and he wears a tinfoil hat. there are a lot of funny scenes with him and mike- when he doses mike and when he covers mike with lard.

there were several parts where i had to rewind a little b/c i couldn't pay attention to the story b/c i was laughing so hard. for instance, the get away vehicles or the clothing people are forced to wear. by far, the funniest scene was listening to what mike had to wear as he approached a bunch of truckers. sadly, i can't get that image out of my head. i won't spoil it for you, but its mike's worst nightmare. even now, i'm laughing and smiling at it.

the battles are awesome. tufo knows how to build the tension and effectively pace the fighting. the last stand at ron's house is well done. tufo outdoes himself describing the gore- running over zombies is like squishing giant packs of ketchup with meat in them.

the cons:

well, we knew mike had to come back somehow. i wasn't sure how tufo was going to do it, but i figured his vamp powers had to be involved. i just didn't expect the divine intervention, and the repercussion it has on eliza.

there are a couple of plot holes. i wondered why this object of particular importance was never mentioned unless i had a brain fart and forgot what happened to it.

there's another interesting character that's introduced who has a connection to eliza. while i don't want to give too much away, she is part of the group that finally confronts eliza.

this leads me to the final confrontation. i didn't know what to expect. mike vs. eliza in a battle of wills. mike and tommy versus eliza. i guess the final battle never lives up to the hype i've built for it. when it is all said and done, i can see why tufo did it the way he did. it is satisfying, but i felt let down when it was over, mostly b/c a series i've really enjoyed was coming to an end.

speaking of the end, the final journal entry is mike's cathartic recounting of what mike went through after eliza kissed him. the last 10 seconds will blow your mind!

Too Much Incredulous and Superfluous Vomitting

Okay at this point I'm invested in the story and the characters. I admire Mark for the small zombie empire he has managed to build. I saw a video on his FB page the other day that stated he sent a draft out to the editor for proof reading. I have to say I'm actually shocked that there is an editor proofreading his books.

Any good editor would tell him about his painfully exccessive use of the words incredulous and superfluous. And I am not sure how many times or ways one person can describe vomitting but I think he has the market cornered. I realize the zombie world he has created is disgusting but at this point in the story, as much as his characters have been exposed to, they would be over that reaction by now. Even if they weren't the constant reference to puking and descriptions thereof are getting a bit superfluous.

Buy a thesaurus Mark!

Eh.....

I've listened to all the books up to this one and have been let down throughout the whole story. This one takes the cake with the final battle between Eliza and Mike basically being a giant disappointment. Don't know if I'll finish the series or not, after this listen I'm more inclined not to...

I expected so much more of an ending for Eliza

Tho it was a long time coming and you knew how it would end, the azile ending was disappointing. I expected so much more from the Talbots vs. Eliza

Drag this thing out...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It's hard to listen to a book you know is going to have a sequel... Especially knowing that this is supposed to be the end all.. The last book was just buying time... . It's not bad... Just feels like a lot of time is wasted with problems that could be more easily solved.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Well.... don't turn a character form the last story insane. Someone whose lived with their kid for several months in a post apocalyptic world.. .*spoilers* would not all of a sudden decide to kill him.

What three words best describe Sean Runnette’s performance?

It's sorta okay

Do you think 'Til Death Do Us Part needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

The author basically forces sequels to this book..... adding another level of evil on top of the level they've been fighting....

Any additional comments?

This should have been the end to the series... the author got greedy and forced another book.... now who knows if this series will end ...?
