Summary

Millions died when the Enillo Virus swept the earth. Millions more were lost when the victims of the plague refused to stay dead, instead rising to slaughter and feed on those left alive. For survivors like John Talon and his son Jake, they are faced with a choice: Do they submit to the dead, raising the white flag of surrender? Or do they find the will to fight, to try and hang on to the last shreds of humanity?

Really Enjoyed

I found this really interesting and at times made me laugh as the characters are witty.

I went from just going to check out a few mins to listening for 6 hours straight.

I'm definitely going to buy the other books in the series.

Well worth it.

Characters had no, err character!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I really couldnt get into the characters. There was no connection with them and they were dull

Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph Talluto again?

Definitely not

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Graham Halstead?

The narrators voice irritated me, kind of nasally. I would have preferred someone that gave the characters distinct voices from the others

'FLAG' White Flag of the Dead as a Must Listen!

When I originally purchased this (White Flag of the Dead, Book 1) first book of Talluto's Zombie Survival Series, I was curious about the title "White Flag." and where the idea for it came about. The answer was provided at the beginning of this book, and made complete sense, reminding me similar methods were used during various times throughout history during plagues, wars, etcetera. For purposes of this series, the method was implemented at the onset of the Zombie Apocalypse, with authorities making a declaration which stated anyone who was bit and/or may be infected is to put a white flag on the front of their doors so everyone will have a heads-up, and know to avoid those occupancies and the occupants of said residencies. These same flags were also supposed to be used as indicators to retrieve the dead quickly, in the hopes this would aid in disease prevention. Obviously, those good intentions were not going to be possible in this situation. . .

The storyline is well written, making it easy to become invested in characters, whom I found relatively believable and relatable. John is a strong, likable lead character, and his adoration for his son is quite endearing. He is a super cool mix of a doting, loving father and a bad a- - zombie slaying, trouble-shooting, rule instilling newly appointed leader to his freshly established group of survivors. Sarah is also a fan favorite of mine (thus far) because she is the perfect balance, having an old soul perception (insight, intuition) which is exactly what John needs at this point to keep him from going off kilter. While on the other side of the coin, Sarah is ALSO a bad a - - Zombie slayer, as well as always standing up for what she believes by saying what is on her mind, and never backing down from any confrontation. Thus far, she appears refreshingly authentic and transparent. Of course, I am interested to see how her character continues to develop independently, and in regards to her budding relationship with John.

good Ole zombie fiction a great listen

nothing special about the story it follows the tried and true last guy standing gathers followers exacts revenge and makes people's life safe, is it boring? not at all if your going to stick to the formula make you character lockable and that's what the author has done. the narrator is great and really fits the hero. overall it is worth your zombie fix.

Awesomesause

Love a great book that takes my mind off of work, I go a little crazy when I hear someone refer to a gun magazine as a clip might want to learn more about either before misusing the terms as if they were interchangeable. Other than that great listen

Zombie virus

Other than certain death scene being described a bit more graphically than I need to hear, I enjoyed the suspense. This is a fast moving , action packed book. As soon as I finished book 1, I'm looking up book2!

Standard ZA story

Pretty standard ZA story, but still entertaining. Interesting enough that I pre-order the next one.
