Still Going Strong

So I finished Zombie Fallout 3: The End a couple of days ago, and I would have posted about it then, but our internet has been a bit dodgy, so I’m sorry for the wait.

Anyway, I can say this with pure conviction: I have never read a zombie genre book, series or otherwise, that has been so down to earth and made me think so much about morals. I know I have mentioned this before in the other two blog posts regarding Mark Tufo’s work, but let’s just say that his third installment in the series does not fail to amaze in this area, or in area for that matter.

And yes you have your gore, death, loss of some main characters and a fantastic twisted plot that would put a sailor’s knot to shame. I thought that Mark Tufo couldn’t possibly get any more imaginative…and I was so wrong. He really twists the boundaries of the whole genre in this one, and without giving too much away let’s just say that the evil Eliza has humans working for her now! And the plot still thickens further with Tommy…

And then you have your comical moments, like zombies on ice, Mike’s many distracting thoughts and ventures into his past, plus we finally get to meet Mike’s side of the family. Which leaves me with little else to say about the plot without giving stuff away. Crap.

I really don’t know how an author can so easily balance love, death and humour, but it has been done. I bow before you oh great zombie genius.

I’m gushing and therefore I apologise. But in all seriousness: READ THE BOOKS! Meanwhile I’m going to go enjoy the Zombie Fallout short story, 3.5, along with a nice cup of tea because I’m British like that. Man if the world does end with the undead I sure as hell am going to miss drinking tea…

  1. I’ve also become a fan of Mark’s. I’ve enjoyed the audiobooks version of his series, plus he seems like a real nice guys. I’ve listen to a ton of Zombie Audiobooks, and in terms to true fun, nothing beats the Talbot clan.

  2. Great blog review. I am not much for words, so I’ll just use yours in my place. I will add however, that being prior military (Marines) It is a little easier to place myself in some of his references. Mark truly had a versatile mind to be able to merge so many different life experiences into this character. Some of which would have to be experienced first had to really understand them. 😉
