After finishing the Zombie Fallout books I started looking for more material to satisfy my Zombie craving. This series more than did the trick, although the first book was a bit short. The second book was satisfyingly longer, and to-date there isn’t a third book, yet. But I’m waiting…
A solid, believable story with good characters and situations. The military and aviation slants were easily supported with solid details that helped bring the story to life (pun committed with no malice aforethought).
The narrator felt a little stiff, but not so much that he was hard to listen to.
I really enjoyed both of these.
I'm married with 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Love to read books, and love to listen to audio books. Genre's UF/Sci-Fi/ dystopian/ fiction and mystery/thrillers
This book jumped around so much, I didn't know what was going on half the time.
The Narrator was very good, he's the only reason I lasted 4 hours.
No, not at all. Love UF, dystopian and zombie books. This one just really sucked.
There's only 2 characters, neither did much for me. Oh wait, there's 2 more. They just suddenly were there, he just started talking about them like they've been in the book the whole time, no back ground on them nothing. Just all the sudden there they were.
Can I have my credit back?. I wasted 4 hours of my life. Couldn't finish it.
I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!
Zombies done right.
I think that the undead become more intelligent after nuclear strikes in cities across America by our leaders.
Very concise, good flow, and captivating.
The day the world dies.
The author writes an interesting journal-diary approach to a zombie infestation of the world. It is interesting how our hero of the story accounts for his day to day survival and encountering others who he tries to keep alive. It was very interesting and hard to put down.
To All My Favorite Narrators: You are the voices in my head...
I discovered this book with Audible's Shock-tober promotion. I was looking for a good zombie book to help with my excitement of AMC's The Walking Dead Season 3 premire. WOW! If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, then you will love this book! It's a day to day account of what its like to live in a world where the dead are trying to eat you.
This book is a page turner and a nail biter. The narrator is excellent and did a fabulous job. I highly recommend! (Scared the hell out of me!)
Best Selling Author of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
I enjoyed every minute of the book. Bourne can really spin a yarn, but I found the plot quite flat. It was just a string of this guys experiences with no major revelations, and I felt the book ended very abruptly and early.
That said, I still really enjoyed reading the book. Glad there's a sequel!
Don't really like Zombie stories, but I loved this one! It kept me in suspense every minute.
The narrator is excellent and I totally enjoyed listening to it.
I didn't really read these type of books, but I love science fiction and horror but in separate books...
But I decided to branch out and take a chance on a new genre...once I listened to the audio..I am now a big fan. It's a great pairing
It's in "journal" format, so you are basically listening to someone read a journal out loud. It's so boring. The character development isn't there. The story line just drags on and on. I love zombie novels, but this one falls so far short in my opinion.
He sounded depressed and his tone was monotonous.
Well, everyone else has said it as well, but I will repeat it. This book is amazing; Bourne's realistic take on a zombie apocalypse book really sat well. It's pretty much a journal, and the narrator does a pretty good job. There are realistic elements such as the Posse Comitatus and certain requirements when the military forces operate within the US borders. I really would like more of it, but that is a good thing.
SOLID. Inside the mind of a soldier in a very difficult situation. Do not listen read negative reviews. JUST GET IT. You'd might as well get both books right now.
So easy to relate to the thoughts and ideas of the characters. In my opinion, this is what a real person would feel and think in the event of such an apocalypse.
Can't really describe it but the performance is perfect. I hope this guy does the 3rd book also. Changing the reader would ruin it.
I cannot help but listen to these books over and over. Every person I have suggested these books to, has called in sick to work in order to finish them both. No matter what kind of stories you like... "these books are like crack". haha.
