This is a great book! Albeit, its a bit short, but the story is great and it keeps your attention.
Accurate information about what would happen should the power go out in the U.S.
Great book, just wish it was longer.
The main character! He made it all real to real for me! I love love love Zombie fiction! And if the .... when down I'd follow him to stay alive!!
Jay Snyder brings the thrill to the novel! Reality and action to life!
My family, friends and co-workers just can't believe that i'm a Zombie fanatic!! Most of them find it scary! I find it sort of( and I know this sounds crazy) a relief from a world so superfical. Zombie fiction for me takes me to a place that if it really were an apocalyptic something could we really leave all this material (wealth) superfical junk and come together as humans to....survive??
I usually avoid zombie novels, finding them too unrealistic for my liking, but this one was very well done despite the premise. I guess any apocalypse premise is unlikely so who am I to judge a zombie plague as less-likely than a giant asteroid or anything else?
Anyway, if you are a fan of the genre, this is a must-read. I can't wait to get my hands on the next one and find out what happens!
It is the journal of a man living through a zombie apocalypse, mostly about his specific plans for survival.
What a great choice for a first book. I tried to limit my listening to just on my commute to/from work but I became so engrossed in the story that I finished it up in just a few days (so I upgraded my account just to get the sequel!).
If you are a fan of the AMC series "The Walking Dead", then you will definitely appreciate this book. The style of writing progresses at a fast enough pace to keep your interest and the diary entries really help you visualize what the author is describing. Jay does a great job narrating and pulls you into the story. Even if you aren't a huge zombie fan, get this book and you will be hooked on the genre!!
Jay Snyder did a fantastic job!
I have listened to it 3 times not in less then a month as well as the second book.
I am a former military man and loved this book whole heatedly. People who are looking for a Rambo charter move on, this is what i would consider a more "real life" (or as real as i could be) account of dealing with Zombies. I also loved World War Z, but this book was better hands down, and for those who do not like the ending, i thought it was a great way to lead into the second book.
I really enjoyed the book itself, it was well written and exciting
The diary author is the obvious choice, however the Zombies are fantastic as well.
The narrator was my only issue with this book. He over enuciates everything, all the swears lose their intensity, his impressions of women and girls are god awful, there was no semblance of emotion in his drab, annoying and boring voice. I really wish I had purchased the paperback instead.
Lets get down to brasstax here, I keep harping on the same cottonpicken' thing. Great book, terrible narrator.
I loved the style in which this book was written. Jay Snyder did it so much justice that i have put all the books he narrated in my wish list. I love zombie books and this one is near the very top.
WOW, did i find one. as soon as it finished... i tried downloading the 2nd book while in traffic... had to pull over so i could have download it.
very well done.. and the reader was great.
finding harder and harder to find a good zombie story.
