First books were awesome. This one was ok but I was not nearly as Engaged in this book as I was the others. Super sad about it. The anticipation of the wait and then the let down. Nothing like the first books.
I am living proof that the universe has a sense of humor.
The ending was horrible, rushed and did not make much sense.
Disappointment to have a really bad ending to a trilogy.
Great 3rd edition to the series
World War Z
Day by Day Armageddon,
yes, i vomited
I really liked the first two books in this series and have been chomping at the bit waiting for number 3, but this was a bit of a let down. I understand the need to change from 1st person to 3rd person to accomodate the plot, however either the author REALLY struggles with this change in style or perhaps the third person parts were written by someone else entirely. Almost every basic rule of narrative is broken. Way too much telling and not showing, too much explaining, excessive adverb use and generally awkward and unbelievable dialogue. It just felt like a young aspiring author trying to do 'too much'. There are small sections where he dips back into the familiar first-person journal style and it's like putting on a comfortable pair of shoes. Still worth the listen to see where the story goes, but not as enjoyable as the first two in my opinion.
The narrator really needs to know how to say things the chief of the boat would never say call me C-O-B he would say call me the cob, like corn on the cob. Also kunai is not pronounced right and Rangeley all places where I have been stationed. It just seems like the narrator of the book could get it right. Same with buds
Just a dude
Never read the print version. Though I would love to have backup book for when the power goes out :)
The action and sacrifice of his charaters. Also the touch of the real world issues.
Huck and Kill showed how broad his range is.
yup! Can't wait for the next one.
Keep em coming JL!
This is my first Review , and fairly so because i was SO DISAPPOINTED. I actually, like all of you, waited for this book impatiently for almost 6 months . After readin the first two in the series I had to label this as the best Zombie book since World War Z .
But then all of that fell apart, First off this book IS IMPOSSIBLE to follow , It jumps from place to place , without changing chapters . I was so lost about what was going on . That I asked for my money back .
I dont know what J.L Bourne was doing and why he decided to completely abandon something that worked so well , but I am pissed off , you made me us wait and now this book is no different then the other 2-3 stars around .
WHY WHY did you abandon a working Formula. ???
I don't know anyone that would
No it Hasn't
He handles the many voices well.
I didn't like how he departed from the original format, the ending was way too short and hurried. He didn't expand on Remote 6 (was really hoping he would do that). I was really disappointed in this book.
What happened ?!
The first half of this book was almost BORING . With all those new characters in play and nobody gives a crap about them (at least, I didn't).
I did not expect (at all) the cartoonish villain , the only thing missing there was the big cat !
And....that ending, so rushed and almost alien to the trilogy...
I expected better
Good but different
I couldn't tell whether this was the same narrator from the previous 2 books, his voice sounded way off from previous work.
I LOVED the first two books in the series, I enjoyed them more for the "Journal" approach the author used to tell his story. The third book, though very good to read, was told in more of "Play" format, where the narrator uses to different voices for the different characters. I did love the book and the narrator but this book felt as if if was written by a different author and read by jay snyder's little brother. Good book, great series, just not what I was expecting or hoping for. The author had a great recipe for a novel and jus went another route on this one
