Using a very different style when writing a zombie book was enough to make me buy it and I'm glad I did. The general feeling of loneliness and isolation is at times unnerving. The fact that Bill, virtually the only human character throughout, has a broken leg and no special skills makes this even more interesting. Too many zombie books just go down the same route of having people like soldiers being the heroes of the hour. What about everyone else? Surely some normal, non-super-human people would manage to survive in the unlikey event of a zombie apocalypse.

Anyway, Bill is a pretty normal guy waiting for someone to come and help him, eventually deciding that he has no choice but to help himself. Struggling to find the basic needs such as food and drinkable water he sets out on a slow adventure through London. There are not buckets of blood to be found in this story but there are moments of excitement with occasional zombie encounters. The greatness of this book comes from the fact that Bill is completely alone, injured, scared, starving and desperate. Even though it's a zombie book the scenario made it seem a bit more realistic and I found myself wondering, "what would I do?". I will definitley read the further books in the series.

I'm not really a great fan of zombie films and stories generally, but I do like distopian fiction and I did rather enjoyed this.

Although the first in a long series, it is a complete story which tells the tale of a government adviser, who is trapped in London due to a broken leg when a plague sweeps through the population, and how he escapes.

What is refreshing is the lack of heroism in the main character. He is remarkably believable, even if the scenario is not, and draws the reader in. You actually care about him, and - although he obviously does escape (he is writing a diary, so he has to be around at the end to write it!) you really want to know how he does it. Im short, its quite a "page turner".

Some of his escapades do not, perhaps, betray too detailed examination - but that is hardly unique for this sort of fiction, and the explanation for the plague works quite well and the way in which the disease spreads is perfectly plausble, as is the government reaction to it.

All in all the book is well written and thoroughly entertaining.

Being English I prefer my novels to be set in England about people I relate to. Which left about two authors I’d bother reading in the horror genre, James Herbert and Sean Hutson … for the last three decades :/ I’d tried one or two others but, boring. Then I stumble across this guy on amazon writing about zombies. Well it’s a free download so why not? Half way through my free book I bought the other eight of his books in the series. Just super, real page turners.

I’m on book three now and I want to hunt zombies :/

I enjoyed this book a lot. It starts off a little slowly, with the rather mundane tasks of having to survive the zombie apocalypse with a broken leg (as if it wasn't hard enough already!) but there's already the hint of intrigue as we discover the main character was involved in politics, and has a lot of behind the scenes information. Unfortunately he's been left behind to fend for himself, and we follow his journey through his personal journal as he tries to make his way out of an over-run London and to discover what went wrong with the evacuation plan - a plan that he himself designed, but never got to see in full. It is a fairly short and easy read, and ideal for fans of zombies, survival or the apocalypse, with just enough political / conspiracy to give it a different edge to the usual.

This was a promotional free purchase, but I have already bought book 2 and look forward to reading it.

Picked this up for free. I'm a fan of the zombie genre and liked the sound of this. It is essentially the journal of a man after the outbreak. His desperation and loneliness is well captured and it does touch upon often ignored subjects such as how would we get food and drink in such an environment. The ending petered out and was a little mild. All in all the book was a little bit beige and I'm not sure I'll carry on with the series.

This story is much like other zombie books I have read. It reads well, grips you and you become invested in the lead character.
The dilemma I have at the moment is. Do I leave the story as it is as a stand alone story? Or, Do I buy the next installment and follow the story on?
Overall, for a zombie book, its decent.

Frank Tayell is a king in zombie literature, using a down to earth, journal writing style to fully engage the reader, vividly mimicking reality. This book is a tale of survival as much as it is about zombies, and tells the story of a man who has to come to grips with the new world. This book is just another piece of evidence that the zombie genre still has a lot to offer.

I do like a good "end of the world" story, this one had me gripped from the beginning! Considering there was only one character really the whole way through, I thought it might be a little boring or slow...it wasn't! I'd recommend to any zombie fan! Off to look for book two. I didn't read 0.5 didn't realise there was one until after reading this so I'm hoping I've not read them out of order now? I found this book via FB advert telling me to click here for a free book....Or maybe it does not matter and that's why this one was the advertised one? Anyway it was a good stand alone story with no references to something you should have already read so I give it 5 stars!
