The story was better than many reviewers will have you believe. I honestly believe it was a solid 4.0 story with a 3.0 ending. Again, there was nothing wrong with the story. The ending was not bad at all, it just could have been expanded on. Sort of like a cliffs notes ending.
The different style was no big deal because there was quality material.
I recommend this to readers of the first two books in the series. Even without the first two books I think this would be a good listen.
I had been looking forward to this book for over a year now and was extremely excited to get it. That said it diddnt quite live up to expectation. After thouroughly enjoying the first two books, which are by far my two favorite zombie fiction novels and i have read quite a few, it just wasnt as good. If u have already read the first two i defintetly stll recomend this one. it does continue the story all though it is written in a differen style instead of following just the protagonist thru his journal their are multiple viewpoints which has some positives and negatives. The ending definetly left much to be desired it seemed very rushed and ended too early in my opinion. I do hope there will be another addition to this series i would still be interested in seeing where it could go.
so, this is the 3rd instalment in what is probably my favorite zombie series. hard to say but this one is not the best. different style, diffent feel, forced outcomes. I dont know you just fall out of love with the characters. The biggest reason I love zombie books is being able to put myself/family in the situations. this one, does not do that. but, that being said, its still better than half the zombie bookes out there. and the frist two are still top of the list.
Most definatly! This is an excellent story, not easy to put down. It departs from the previous 2 books in the series but not going to the main characters journal, but this is ok and needed to move the plot along. You will not be bored!
Hard to choose only one, but Hourglass's final mission inside China ranks up there!
The book had me hooked. Had a hard time turning it off!
There must be more books in this series!
He changed his style from a journel of a single survivor to a typical format. He seemed to get out the cat in the hat Voom machine and sucked all the clutter away, just so he could get the series done.
The first two books were really good, but the last in the series was just OK.
The style was different, going from a single point of view journal to multiple documentary style and that made it a bit hard to follow in the beginning with so many new angles. But you get the hang of it quite quickly.
Just as good as his earlier books. Well worth the money.
Consistency - Great voice for this story telling...
I wish they would make a film on this series, it would be awesome. Same tag line the author uses.
The diary entry format was almost fully abandoned. And the conclusion was really odd. Why did they even introduce the Crusoe character? The whole point of the hourglass mission was all but abandoned. And the Remote 6 tangent was ridiculous. Not to mention the ridiculous alien subplot, which was then subsequently abandoned. Just a terrible conclusion to this series. So disappointing.
Yes. I feel like I totally wasted my time listening.
The voices of the 2 teams was so confusing. The accents were almost insulting.
No. Seriously. No.
Don't listen to this.
Day by Day Armageddon and Beyond Exile are two of my favorite books. This book, while modestly entertaining, is just another cliche zombie adventure. I guess the author really had no idea why his first two books where so loved. For that matter, did he actually even write this one?
The only good thing I have to say about this book is that its not actually so bad that it retro actively ruined the first two books, but its not one that I will ever listen to again or keep in my library.
