Probably not, this was my third book from Bourne that I have read.
He could have thought up a better more imaginative ending. It seemed as though Bourne had his deadline and quickly finished the story without the depth of the beginning.It was quite bothersome when the author hinted that an upcoming piece of information was going to be earth shattering and then the reader finds out that it is simply that aliens landed at Roswell, NM.
When deep six gets nuked.
Yes it could be a movie. A haven't a clue about the actors.
poor writing, too much military jargon, lackluster characters
i think Snyder did the best he could with this trite nonsense, but really, he's just polishing a turd. in the end, it's still a badly written book.
the entire ending was dull, but really so much crap filled the rest (aliens, no real zombie actions, no character development or even emotional inner dialogue).
this book was terrible and i would not recommend it to anyone.
There are few things better than a good story well told!
I would definitely recommend the series. You won't 'get it' if you start with this one. In fact, though I've read the entire series so far, for me this was oddly hard to follow. It seemed a bit rushed and confusing. Still, if you are a fan of the series it does advance the plot.
The scenes aboard the sub.
I haven't given up on the author; the first two books were great. I just wont jump on buying until some reviews are posted.
I'd hoped book 3 would continue in the same style as the first 2 books. The story was choppy and rushed, with huge gaps missing in the action. The radical departure makes me wonder if it was even the same author.
Frustration and disappointment. This was a huge missed opportunity to wrap up the story.
I understand military messages begin with a long string on numbers and letters. I get it. Listening to the narrator read them aloud is VERY annoying.
If you read the first two books and loved them like I did do yourself a favor and do NOT NOT NOT read this one. You will be disappointed beyond belief. I don't know what J.L. was thinking. The journal entry to 3rd person narrative I understand, don't like, but understand. The plot is weak, feels rushed and I swear I found myself restarting chapters over and over again. It was REALLY had to follow. Dry. It almost felt like a boring documentary that you watch at 3am on a Friday night. I am VERY disappointed. I was so excited to read book 3 and wish now I didn't.
Hopefully he'll get his act together and go back to what we readers love about his work. Military culture, jargon & info weaved into a great story and not "too" over our heads. J.L. Bourne are you reading this.................dude you dropped the ball on this one. Please if there's a book 4 read all of our reviews and take notes!!!!
If there's nothing else to read get it. If you're a fan don't waste your time you'll just get frustrated!!!

The final (?) book in the Day by Day series. It’s much like the first two with a mix of zombie action (although it seems a bit slower than the others) and insight from the survivors. It gives some more background on remote 6 and wraps things up rather nicely but leaves the door ajar for a possible follow on. The format is slightly different than in the first two books. The vast majority of the first two books was based on the journal of the main character. While there are some journal entries included in this book since the main characters are spread out in the world, it takes on a more third person view. If you liked the first two books you will like this one.
All of my reviews are on my blog audiobookreviewer dot com
First impression is that what I had feared has happened, the journal style of the story was completely removed. The main character that has remained nameless through 2 books now has a name, Killjoy. The entire feeling of the series has changed and I am not sure if I like it or not. Yea okay I was totally disappointed with this book. However it was a solid story by itself, not compared to the rest of the story. If you are in need of a one off zombie story fix Shattered Hourglass: Day by Day Armageddon, Book 3 would be perfect for you. If you are looking to be engrossed in a somewhat vague journal entries of an unnamed military man trying to eek out his existence, I think you will be disappointed.
Listening to Jay Snyder is like being serenaded by an old friend that has a way will telling stories. It’s kind of funny because every time I listen to an Audible Frontiers book, Snyder often does the intro regardless of who the actual narrator is, I get giddy inside and think to myself “Did I misread who the narrator was?”, then the real narrator takes over and I breath a sigh of disappointment. Not today folks! Snyder has a a very dynamic range of voices, useful for whatever type of character might cross his lips, combined with his foresight to create tension and suspense by choosing great places for pauses, rhythm changes, and emotional outbursts. If you can’t I am a fan of Snyder’s work and will continue to look for his narrations.
I don't know I haven't read the print version
Did not do justice to the series. Felt way too Deus Ex Machina to wrap everything up quickly. I felt that where the characters were 3/4's of the way through the book needed at least another book just to move them forward.
He really portrayed each character very well!
Yes there was, and I wont spoil it.
Good series, though I feel deserved a better ending.
The same narrator for the last 2 books, and he definitely adds something to it beyond a print version
It was great to continue the story line from the last 2 books, but some clichéd additions pertaining to the power behind the scenes was a little weak.
Definitely would have wanted to do this in 1 sessions, but it's better spread out
PLEASE write another book, back to diary style!
I love the story and the characters
Kilroy the main character, he has evolved into a great leader
It's always fun to great men do girl voices
Yes, already listened twice
I hope jl bourne keeps writing
