    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Story
    What did you like best about Survivors? What did you like least?

    It completed perhaps the best zombie story I've heard yet. I like Z.A. Recht a lot, but he passed away before he could finish this edition. It was clear that it was not written by him. The nemesis was just rediculous, and I felt like it would have added to the plot to keep more people alive till the end.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Zombies!


    Do you think Survivors needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. It would've been cool if Recht could've wrote it, but he can't now. Besides, all the main characters that he's spent so much time developing have been carelessly and almost non-shalauntly killed off.


    Any additional comments?

    RIP Z.A. Recht, you were truly a great author. Your death is a loss to the world.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    What made the experience of listening to Day By Day Armageddon the most enjoyable?

    The content, story line.


    What other book might you compare Day By Day Armageddon to and why?

    The Morning Star Strain books by Z A Recht.


    Did Jay Snyder do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He was okay, his voice didn't really take on the character differentiation aspect I've come to appreciate in other readers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    In a post apocalyptic world, the survivors struggle against all odds to survive.

    Texas? Toast. Battered by five cataclysmic hurricanes in three weeks, the Texas Gulf Coast and half of the Lone Star State is reeling from the worst devastation in history. Thousands are dead or dying - but the worst is only beginning. Amid the wreckage, something unimaginable is happening: a deadly virus has broken out, returning the dead to life - with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. The nightmare begins...

    Scott says: "Very shallow - feels like reading a video game"
    "Entertaining, but not the best zombie book."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's about zombies, and there just can't be enough books on the matter.


    If you’ve listened to books by Joe McKinney before, how does this one compare?

    N/A


    What does Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Audiobooks are just better in general. You get more of the book into your head with someone actually reading it to you.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The zombie apocalypse was a very brief one... probably close to how a real one would play out.


    Any additional comments?

    It's worth the listen
