I can't recommend it like I did the first two. It does continue the story, but the problem is this sudden change from the journal (hence the "day by day") to a more classic zombie story.
I'll would recommend, still, the first two books, but would likely just tell them that the story is over. The third book loses what made the first two books unique a sea of zombie apocalypse stories.
Delivery. The "day by day" journal-style of the first two books was engaging and unique. I felt like I was listening to something akin to the style of House of Leaves, only more coherent. If the first two books were published in book form, however, it would be really neat to see! The third would just be another zombie book on shelf.
Jay is fantastic. Great narrator.
Before it had hype. With the third book, it'll be a Syfy channel C-list movie.
I LOVED the first two, but this one was different.
Instead of being written in first person diary form, it was in several third person view points (with the occasional first person narration).

As a fellow author, I hate being critical of others. However, the one thing that bugged me in this story was the step AWAY from the journal style. Adding the third person view to a series that didn't have it kind of threw me off, especially since I had no idea who those people were for the most part.
That being said, it was a great ending to the series (if it was the ending).
the tone of the entire series took a twist from what I was expecting at the beginning of this book 3 and it all comes around again in the end which is awesome
Even though I dont love the idea of mixing zombies along with another genre...this story overall was great and its ending exceeded my expectations. I really hope that one day this story is turned into a movie. Bravo J.L. Bourne for writing such an awesome tale. Jay Snyder also does an excellent reading performance through this entire book series, and Id also recommend other stories that he reads as well.
this story paints a vivid picture of the hopeless odds of doom the characters are facing immersed in a barren depleted world now over ran with the undead
I love listening to distracting SciFi while on long commutes to jobsites, or working in the garage. Favorites: Apocalyptic, Space, Vampire
Admittedly the strong series trips a bit introducing some more major parts to the assault on the dead. But stick with it! The additional elements come together in the second half of the book, making a strong recovery.
I was pleased with the conclusion of the series and would love to hear more of the story
I love audio book like mostly Sci-fi book s zombies a fav
I loved the first 2 books they were some of the best zombie story's ever. this book a not so much it seemed to me it was rushed and the story was weak and the ending I was disappointing. The only saving grace is that the first two book are so good that you can live with this one.
