Wow, light blue touch paper etc......A great conclusion to a great series. Credulity may have been stretched a bit at times but the action was almost non-stop, mostly human faction against human faction. Palliative treatments for the infection, fungus' North Koreans and a conclusive ending. Thoroughly enjoyed the series.

Better than book two but not as good as the first. The ending felt a little too simple and convenient but overall I've enjoyed this set of books.

The story built well gradually preparing the reader for the horrors to come. The pace then picks up building the drama through book two. Interstingly the author uses a different style with each book but this makes sense as the number of character's increases .
These books follow a predictable pattern for fans of this genre but does have some exciting twists. They were action packed and enjoyable.
Some reviewers have expressed shock at the main characters relationship with a 17 year old survivor. I woud remind them that it is set in a world where survival of the human race is at stake. This age gap is not that unusual and she is actually old enough to be married in our society let alone where society has fallen. They kill people too, the world is a very different place!
These books are entertaining, a bit gory, and occasionally humerous. They are not realistic (his cat goess through so much it must have 9000 lives) and do not appear to have any deeper meaning. They do weave a tale that draws you in and invests you in the characters. I recommend then for fans of a good apocalyptic story.

As an avid apocalyptic novel fan, this is the best I've come across so far. It is a real 'edge of your seat' story.
I'd recommend reading book 1 and 2 (which are very good too) as it helps set the stage for this, the final novel.

BEWARE POSSIBLE SPOILERS

As many reviewers have already commented this tale unfolds in the form of one man's blog that is kept in a diary and, while the internet is live, via a web blog. The language is relatively simple, but never preambles. The narrative follows, at times a predictable formula. There is a terrorist attack on a secret military base slash research facility. What follows is a tumbling of the dominoes as secrecy and governmental ineptitude leads to a worldwide pandemic of the un-dead who behave very much like the flesh eating Zombies.

Our protagonist is a lawyer by trade; he is widower who lives alone in Galicia Spain, except for his cat who figures heavily in his life. Through his blog/diary we see how society begins to unravel as the pandemic spreads from a remote zone in the Russian Federation until it reaches Spain and finally his front door. Not wishing to give spoilers, our lawyer and cat are forced to leave their fortress home and embark on journey to find some safe haven. On this `road trip' from hell our hero will meet the best, worst, the racist and profoundly stupid of humanity.

This being the third novel, has been translated from Spanish, and contains his travels and experience's. I just want to clarify I have been listening to the unabridged version and have not read the books, but I am sure they are one in the same. I found the story entertaining, and it was refreshing to have a story mainly based in mainland Europe. Although this is third edition of the series, is based in North America.

This last book will show how a total totalitarian state could survive a Zombie pandemic. A treatment, rather like drugs for HIV - that holds at bay full blown infection. There are other tasters in this concluding novel - there are Zombies with fungal infections, and racists that see the Zombie pandemic as a new beginning for white supremacy. This book is not going to win any literary prizes - but this is not one of those books. Some rather interesting Horror fiction has been coming out of Spain lately and this story is one of them. In summation then this is an interesting and entertaining audio-book, which is cat friendly to boot and I recommend it.

After a disappointing second book this one is better. Still not as good as the first but nonetheless a decent end to what has been an enjoyable trilogy.

Taking its cues from genuine classic post-apocalyptic fiction like Stephen King's The Stand and less renowned work such as Jerry Ahern's Survivalist series Loureiro clearly felt that the series needed a little more depth to keep the reader engaged. It worked, to a point.

I won't offer up any spoilers but those who have read either of the works I mention above will get some idea of where Louriero is taking us.

I did enjoy getting back together with Prit and Lucia (still find the relationship unsavoury though) but I was dismayed to see the thoroughly annoying cat was still alive. As with previous novels there are many moments when one has to suspend credulity for a while and there is a segment towards the end featuring our hero which needs further explanation which disappointingly does not come.

A solid read, and if you have read the first two you will want to finish the trilogy, but I am glad it's over and hopefully the raw talent of Manuel Loureiro can follow a different muse now. I'll be certain to keep an eye out for future works.
