Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Originally started as an online fiction journal, ‘Day by Day Armageddon’ is written in a diary form from the perspective of a lone survivor in a post-apocalyptic world that is overrun by the living dead. The author, John Bourne has been writing this ongoing zombie saga in between serving as a U.S. Naval officer. His knowledge of tactical survival and weaponry is reflected perfectly within the pages of the novel. Sometimes quite clumsily written, the book gives off a realistic viewpoint of this harrowing and desperate situation.
The tale starts out with the epidemic first impacting on the world, as humanity quickly begins to crumble around the writer. With massive similarities at the start, to that of the cult online diary ‘Alpha_dog’, we see the panic and uncertainty of the situation slowly taking over. From the start, the reader finds out that the diary is being written by a lone military man who falls upon his training and knowledge to ensure his own survival. Soon we meet a few other survivors, as the diary takes the reader on a desperate trip from one location to another.
The small band of survivors end up hiding away, only to find that they have to defend themselves against more than just the decaying hordes of the undead. Drawing heavily from the ideas from within George A. Romero’s cult classic film ‘Dawn Of The Dead’, Bourne ends this first volume with a dramatic turn of events for the survivors. Unfortunetly, the ending does seem to come about all too quickly, but this leaves open the start of the next instalment perfectly.
Bourne opening admits that he is no ‘real’ writer, but his obvious passion for the subject brings out a flare of energy that is often clouded in other similar work.

A zombie book and I loved it, no suprise there!

This for me was a zombie story with a difference. It is a day by day account of a Navy officer from just before the epidermic hits and daily (sometimes more than one entry per day) journal entries. Normally it is all kill kill kill to keep you hooked and get your imagination going but not so with this book.

You follow his very early methods of self preservation and survival to meeting other survivers and bonding and struggling to stay together and survive a world of horror.

The book is at a great pace, riveting and keeps you guessing to what is going to happen next. Everytime he ventures out will he be next to die? I feel I should elaborate more but to be honest it is so good you just need to grab a copy for yourself.

There is also a guarentee of a follow up book so watch this space, 5/5 for me.

Overall it's really quite an enjoyable, easy read but it feel like it hasn't been proofread. Every few pages there are errors like "to" being used instead of "too" or "pear" instead of "pair", "poll" instead of "pole". It occasionally has helpful diagrams - for example showing the layout of his street, but it was thrown in seemingly at random a dozen pages after the description of his street. The diary angle was interesting at first, but it quickly became silly (for example he would apparently be writing an entry mid-crisis) and in places he seemed to get mixed up with what tense he was writing in. At times the diary pretence seemed to be completely dropped.

The story is a fairly typical zombie survival story and most of the characters are pretty 2D and generally rather useless (apart from the main character, who seems to be an idealised version of the author). His trusty sidekick John spends the first half of the book loyally waiting in the car/house/tower while our plucky hero does all the work and comes up with all the plans.

In spite of the above, it's still worth a read for zombie fans looking for a nice way to kill a few hours. For anyone who isn't specifically looking for zombies but fancies some horror or post apocalyptic fiction then there are better books elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
This book gives a great new perspective on the post apocalyptic world and the art of survival. The book is written in the style of a diary and it's easy to see that the author is drawing heavily on his military training. Most books in the genre centre on confrontations with the undead and full on gore.

Bourne's approach is more realistic even though the lead character has military training he seeks to avoid drawing attention to himslef and finds some creative and silent ways to dispatch his enemies. The theme of maintaining a low profile builds the tension well and Bourne constantly reminds the reader that life in the undead world revolves around a safe haven and adequate food and water supplies.

Having found a great safe haven the group of survivors then encounter another enemy possibly worse than the undead. Even though the ending does come quite quickly, I think this suits the realism of the book as a long firefight would have lead to a different ending for the small group of survivors.

If you are a fan of the genre then you will enjoy this book, and if you're a fan with a zombie survival plan then this book will give you a list of things that you need to add to your checklist!
