I've read a lot of books, around 5 thousand, and many have a series where the first book is good enough you buy the next book, but then the story fizzles out... Not so with this book. I read this second book straight through in about three hours. (The first book took about a day and half... damn those chores and life getting in the way!) My son is now reading book one for himself and I recommended it to my father.
This series takes a plausible scenario of a CDC rushed ooops vaccine for H1N1 virus outbreak and creates a zombie apocalypse. However, rather than non-stop doom & gloom, we get these 'Mike-isms' and we get to hear his inner dialogue, along with those moments where his brain-thought-to-mouth filter fails him. It takes the now normal zombie apocalypse and adds a hysterically funny twist. But you also get to experience a bit more reality this way because we've all had these thoughts, well, maybe not all of them, and in reality, probably a rather small portion of them! Maybe!? Anyway, you see how family/friend/community dynamics play a major role in a survival (or any crisis event). We get to ask ourselves how far would you go to protect your loved ones, or just humanity in general.
Through books you get to enter another world/reality or realm. This series makes you question your morality, your trust in others, and even realistic issues such as the depravity of others, loss, and death of a loved one. You begin to understand the value of things we take for granted every day... clean drinking water, food, gas, showers. (I will never under value pain medicine, proper medical care, or showers again! I'm a mediocre germaphobe due to having auto-immune disease and multiple medical issues... blood soaked, zombie splatter clothing or bits in my hair, just might send me off the deep end, and that's knowing I enjoy deer/elk hunting!)
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, survivalist, zombie, apocalyptic, comedy, etc., type book genres. I don't regret buying the second book and have now started reading the third in this series and it's still going strong.
Plus, this author is such a gem. He truly appreciates his readers taking the few moments out of their day to write a review. I think authors who put their work out there for the public to read, such as his first book in this series, deserves a few moments for us to write a review. For those who have B!+hed about poor editing, so do the authors! Many have expressed their disappointment with editors doing less than stellar editing. However, I didn't find many problems with book one, two or what I've read of book three. In addition, this story is represented as Mike's handwritten journal, no spell check sorry, and as he recounts his story we are immersed into his survival, his family's well-being & survival, their losses, and his comedic/sometimes sick, inner dialog. Give it a read! You won't regret it.
These books have brought laughter and hours of reading enjoyment into my household, and if you only knew how appreciated and amazing that is, you'd understand that no review could ever payback this author! Please read and recommend this author/this book series to your friends and family. - M.

On a side note: I really can’t stand the wife so far. She’s dumb and weak. She doesn’t fight against the Zombies and she seems to have her head up her rear end. I really hope she toughens up and gets her head on the game in the third book. The daughter is also a mess that sits back while everyone else fights for her life. I don’t know if that was what the author was aiming for with these characters but that’s how they come off as. Really, with the way they are they shouldn’t have survived the first couple of days.
If you're reading the reviews, you're ready to have Tufo finish setting the hook.
He has enough military information presented, neither too indepth trying to please folks who are into that or to "softsell" to appease others who don't care about one pistol from another.
He will have you laughing out loud, choking up in a turn of the page. This is NOT a watered down, PG any family member book. There is swearing, characters who are tramatized, injured or worse. Newer, more horrific monsters acting differently. And not all of them are zombies!
Sorry for such a short review, but book 3 waits for me next to the coffee pot.
Give yourself a few hours where you can do some delicious binge reading. But most of all, have fun. There is no such thing as reading u
