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.
I liked the single perspective of the previous books. The sudden change to multiple ones made it seem just like any other zombie book out there currently.
Starting off, love the series. Like the idea of "day by day journal" of a apocalyptic zombie survivor. The narrator needed to be coached on military lingo. I know, I know; splitting hairs but the "Chief Of the Boat" is not none as the C.O.B., he is known as the cob. BUD/S is not pronounced as B.U.D.S., it's buds. A RIBH (inflatable boat) is a rib. Anal but those things piss you off when you are listening and truly have an understanding of what the author intent is when characters are using the language. Every time I heard these mistakes, I was ready to set my hair on fire and scream like a fire engine. Just my two cents!!
It's a good zombiebook, no doubt about it. But, it's not as good as the first two books in the series and I don't fell content with the ending.
Not his best. His synopsis for the book is excellent but I don't feel he executes it to the fullest possible exstent.
With this book I did something I don't usually do, I jumped to other books and then forced me to go back. Not a bad book though.
I loved the first two books but when the book storyline switched from location to location it didn't tell you and unless you were following really close and it was easy to get lost. If you have read Jonathan Maberry he starts each area with a location and time stamp I don't know whom taught him this but my god is it helpful.
I'm glad the story is over but disappointed on the development of the characters that I cared about and how it ended. Now I know the writer was deployed overseas and with that I am going to say thank you for your service. Beating the horse would not be polite and overall very rude.
Understanding in the end its the vision of the writer and not my own that keeps me grounded. I am just along for the ride, no one forced me to get into the car and say just drive. There was too much time between books and I feel he lost that spark and this book was a job to get done. You can feel the lack of thought and operation in the chapters of the book.
The reading of the book became flat at the end. I was a tough read for the narrator.
No I'm happy the storyline is over.
If you want FUN get Jonathan Maberry and start at patient zero.
Kept with the type of writing
hated the change from 1st person to 3rd
mosty of the military junk. was better when he was running on the mainland by himself
1st 2 book awesome. 3rd, not so much
let us be thankful for the fools but for them we would not suceeed. M Twain. I am a fan of Zombie books. Im a family man with two great kids
If it was rewritten in the style of the first two books.
Zombie Fallout 2
Solid perfect for J L Bourne's books.
Mr Bourne please put this speed bump behind you and go back write another book similar to the first two and i will definitely buy it. What made the first two so good for me was the first person account of survival you felt like you were there.
By the way i went back to try and listen to this again in case i was missing something but gave up its just not fun anymore.
the story just seemed rushed and not in the format that made this series great....
everything....its boring and jumps around to ppl that really dont even need to be in the story, just shows that j.l.bourne didnt put much effort into writing this book as much as he did the rest cause this one is crap...about 3/4 of the book is not even the main character...and since when do ppl call him kill??? i got so sick of it that by the end i was so happy the book was over i didnt have to hear it
the performance was just as good as always to bad the story he read was complete dribble
a character named kill and give him his name back...
listen to the reviews this book isnt even worth the 13 bucks i paid for it
I was delightfully entertained by the first two books in the series (despite some nagging vocabulary and pronunciation errors) and was eagerly awaiting the third. The author decided to completely change his style from journal to omniscient 3rd person. The story now does not follow any one person, but jumps from character to character. The former, journal style made this series stand out from the rest. Now it reads like a mediocre, overly macho, try-hard action comic. The story was once very promisimg. This 3rd installment is a dud.
Excellent narration and a fast paced story line carrying on where book 2 left off.
Great twist and use of modern technology events.
It was great throughout.
