This story is what true zombie survival horror is all about.
none first of its class
you could believe he was there
it made me think
This is the best zombie novel I have ever read. I love the timeline format this read keeps you wanting more I wish they would do the third book!
The story is very well told. Each day in the journal builds and builds.
My favorite part about the story is that the characters are very believable and you find yourself questioning your own survival tactics.
The narrator does a great job. This book doesn't need exaggerated voice acting. It feels more real that way.
The author! He is outstanding!
Give this book a chance! You will be happy you did. --> StevenX
I've already listened to it twice.
World War Z was also a great book. The second book of this series is even better than the first so make sure to check that out after listening to this one.
The story is told through the eyes of a military officer and Snyder's voice fits that perfectly.
i wish this guy would continue this book. it seemed another perspective from someone else who survived a zombie outbreak...kinda like a side story to the walking dead characters..
This is the best zombie book ever. It is non stop action and excitement. I simply could not stop listening, and as soon as I'd finish DBDA1 I downloaded the sequal. Great Fun!
Bourne has written a tidy little zombie story here with a new twist; first person narrative. The daily diary reveals the unfolding events in a more immediate and personal way as compared to most of todays tiresome undead novels and stories. Snyder reads as if he has just uncovered the diary and is sharing it with us.
Entertaining, suspensful, disappointed
sneaking in the boat to get food and shooting a zombie with kill me on his apron.
He tone was straight on, the way he protrayed the various moments of hysteria
Not really an extreme reaction, but it did scare me a time or two, making me sit on the edge of my chair hoping everything turned out all right. I did hooray when he took down the gang making threats against his group.
I have never read a Zombie book until this one. I was hesitant at first but it was highly recommeded to me. I love the way it was written. While all things have to come to an end, I wish it could have gone on. But it left to the imagination who was the winner in the zombie war.
