If the author would have stayed with the former books format, I would have enjoyed the book.
Yes, I believe he has talent, but I believe he slacked on his last book. Didn't put the effort into it.
He did a great job on the first two stories, but because they were journal style, he had only a few voices to develop. Not a strong development in the third.
HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Waited what seemed like ages for this book to come out.
Very little storyline about the main character. It seemed like he didn't know where to go with plot so he added three subgroups in order to bulk up content. Also the ending was so pat and lame. It didn't make any sense to me, but then most of the story went that way.
I though the first two were really great being written from the Journal style. But the 3rd seeemed like it was a bit of an effort to bring the previous story lines together. I still really enjoyed it and would recommend it as one of the better Zombie storys I have read.
A good addition, but not quite as good as the first two. Part of this had to do with the deviation from the single character style, and part with some of the subplot. However, there is a lot of creativity in the subplot and the zombie origins. Fans of the series will be satisfied I think.
YES! Audiobooks rock!
The Arctic team after fuel....creepy!
Great book but the first two were better!
I don't give spoilers
How I love the Zombie Apocalypse. This is one of my top 10 series in the genre. If not all but most Zombie books are roughly the same. And many reviews on here will mislead you with words like (brings nothing new to the genre or unoriginal story line) which in turn pisses me off. There books about Zombies!!! If you change much more then Speed of the zombies or how they came about then there not ZOMBIES anymore. Alright that said Book 1&2 are great full marks If your a fellow zombie lover it's a must have. Unfortunately book 3 makes me want to puke, not that it's not alright, it is OK. But next to the first two books it looks like a steaming pile.
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
