If you like the first book you'll like this.
If you haven't read the first book read it before you read this.
Another reviewer mentioned they didn't like the American flag wavery of the book and didn't like the context in which other nations were mentioned (aka everyone but Americans are stupid and suck at killing zombies), I didn't find the book to be like this at all, I personally hate books that read like propaganda and I would have stopped reading it if this was the case, the only thing mentioned that might irk some people was that Britain got pwned by the zombie hordes as the citizens didn't have a right to bear arms... this isn't really offensive, lets face it it would probably happen (and yes I am British, I'd imagine there's only so many zombies you can kill with a frying pan before being overrun).
All in all a great read, the format makes it easy to put down and pick up again and it ends on an excellent cliffhanger that makes me wish J.L. Bourne would get his finger out and finish the third one.
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.Read more ›
I thought it was a decent, fast paced action novel with some interesting detail in the way of information about weapons and military details. An easy, fast read that kept me on the edge of my seat, despite the fairly shallow character development, because the way the diary is written always keeps you in the very heat of the moment. I will give this one a four stars, although realistically it's probably closer to a 3.5, and I don't think I'll be checking out the next in the series right now, but should I need another dose of zombie action, I'd definitely consider coming back to it.
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.
