Product Description

Product Description

"The simple style this story is presented in sometimes tricks you into taking it at face value; but it's the reading between the lines that gives you the full sense of horror in the world around the main character." - Amazon reviewer "zombie"

This is the fourth entry in the Kellie's Diary series.

Almost four years after the events of "Kellie's Diary #3", Kellie and her younger sister have steadily grown accustomed to life around them. They've long since left Texas, traveling with a mobile community. It's the longest they've ever stayed with one group, but remaining steady in a moving environment has it's share of challenges... and secrets.

This issue also contains the short story "Sarah's Despair" (also available in the collection Kellie's Diary: Decay of Innocence).

Great for fans of zombie fiction and "The Walking Dead"!

4.0 out of 5 stars Party over, oops out of time! 3 Feb 2014
By Kelly Garbato - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
(Caution: minor spoilers ahead!)

The fourth installment in an ongoing series (Parts 1 through 3 are available both individually and collected in KELLIE’S DIARY: DECAY OF INNOCENCE; Part 1 is free on Amazon), KELLIE’S DIARY #4 picks up nearly four years after where Part 3 left off. The date is April 6, 1999, and Kellie – just nine years old when we first found her – is a more mature 15 (and a half! Teenagers know how important those fractions are!) In a surprising twist, she, Lydia, Sarah, and Dan are still living with the train people; given Sarah and Dan’s suspicions about leader Mark, I thought for sure that the groups would have parted ways within days or weeks of meeting. While Lydia helps to grow food in the on-board garden, Kellie accompanies the salvage teams as a scout.

It’s on a mission on the outskirts of Los Angeles, in Highland, that things go terribly wrong. The town isn’t just empty of supplies, but seemingly abandoned, and long since. And yet, Kellie and Sarah feel eyes watching silently as they search house after house. Their suspicions are confirmed when, on their second day of scavenging, a group of heavily armed men attempt to hijack the train and steal their provisions. In a horrific scene that floods Kellie’s head with memories of Dr. Crane, one of the thieves shows a little too much interest in young Lydia. It’s in this moment that things really go south.

Though half of the train community manages to escape, a more insidious threat lurks from within in the form of Pastor Paul. A creepy, End Times fundie type, Paul hatches a plot to infect the entire community with zombieosis, thus speeding along “God’s Plan” and delivering everyone to the next world. Luckily, Kellie and Lydia manage to escape – but find themselves in an abandoned industrial district even creepier than the abandoned town they just left behind. Visions of “Bagman” continue to haunt Kellie, who’s becoming increasingly distrustful of her own senses. One thing she can be sure of: she and Lydia are not alone.

KELLIE’S DIARY #4 is a step up from the previous episodes, which are readable enough, but not terribly suspenseful or especially memorable. Part 4 ups the creep factor considerably, and ends at a rather crucial moment. The book also contains the short story SARAH’S DESPAIR (previously published in DECAY OF INNOCENCE) – so, with just 64% of the story down, I was shocked to see it end so abruptly. Shocked, but in a good way! I’m definitely looking forward to Part 5.

As Kellie ages, her writing style matures. This is a huge improvement over the more childish entries in Part 1, which I sometimes found hard to read. With the large gaps in time and consequent rapid aging of the narrator, the focus of the series has necessarily shifted, too: this is no longer a look at the apocalypse through a child’s eyes, but rather those of a young adult. But there’s always younger sister Lydia (seemingly deep in denial, much like the citizens of Woodbury in THE WALKING DEAD) to present the child’s view.

On the downside, aside from Kellie’s discovery of an old Nintendo console, there aren’t nearly as many ’90s references as I’d hoped. Although, to be fair, I guess most of the decade in this universe was spent fighting off the zombie hordes.

In Part 4, the authors shift from a faux diary format (handwriting font, water-stained, college-ruled notebook paper) to a plain-text format, reportedly due to technical and space issues. While the diary format has that authentic feel, I prefer the more readable plain-text format. Parts 1 through 3 use the faux diary format, while DECAY OF INNOCENCE is plain-text. Plan your purchases accordingly!

5.0 out of 5 stars My how time does fly....... 12 July 2014
By Martha H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book starts off with a bang. Three years have passed since book #3. Kelly is now 15 years old. When you first start reading from Barb, you instantly see that there has been a hugh change in Kelly. This story is darker than the others. Kelly's "job" is very dangerous. She is frustrated with her sister. Plus dealing with 15 year old hormones. Things have been as close to normal as they can be in a ZA, but as always is the case....nothing stays the same for long.

I can say that she is haunted from events in her past and no matter where she is, she still is dealing with her demons. The authors have definitely taken this series up a notch and it's good. There are some tragic events in this story and it can only make her harder. This is a tough life for a 15 year old.

Can't wait for book 5. I would recommend this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't get enough of the entries in "Kellie's Diary!" 11 July 2014
By Jennifer Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kellie's Diary #4 was just as awesome as the first three. Kellie has had to grow up fast over the last few years; and she has already experienced far more trauma than one person should ever have to endure. The worst part...I'm pretty sure there are many more tragic events yet to come. It takes a strong person to survive in an apocalyptic world where you have to worry about the living just as much as the walking dead. Who do you trust? From the looks of it, basically nobody.

I also enjoyed the short at the end of the book titled "Sarah's Story." It would be really cool if there was a separate book specifically focusing on the stories of various key characters fights for survival and their very different experiences of that first day when everything went down. I'm going to pick up the book with Kellie's Diaries 1-3 just for the extra stories at the end.

If you enjoy zombie apocalypse survival stories, especially those ones that feel so real they touch your heart, you have to read these books!

As with the previous installments of Kellie's Diary, this one delivers the "on the edge of you seat" ride with Kellie and her sister. Kellie's sheer determination to survive has you rooting for her!
