The second book in his Zombie Fallout series, Zombie Fallout 2: A Plague Upon Your Family, is as amazing as the first installment. It’s full of twists, gore, jokes and mushy moments that threaten to break the ‘Man Code’ (read the book, then you will get the reference).
And you cannot forget the McDonalds scene,which was very funny. And though it is a flashback it allows you a little more insight into our loveable main character Mike Talbot.
This story carries on directly after the first one left off, with Mike and co escaping the carnage of Little Turtle and running from the nightmare that is Eliza, the female zombie who seems to want Mike’s head on a pike, and who keeps following him and his family around with a trick or two up her rotten sleeves.
As ever, the book is full of tense moments and even more so now that Mike and his family are on the run from the hordes of the ravenous dead that seem to be under the control of Eliza, who is much more than we first thought during the first book. No really, I’m not making that up or exaggerating.
Some characters end up departing us in this book too, then reappear and some old enemies also make an entrance.
And the gore levels are amazing. All I will say on that matter is that you men out there will be wincing and cringing during one of the first few scenes of the book.
Mr Tufo is a wonderful writer and has set himself the big task of continuing to be so brilliant in the rest of the Zombie Fallout series. And I’m sure he won’t disappoint.
