    Indian Hill is about an ordinary boy who grows up in relatively normal times but who finds himself thrust into an extraordinary position. Growing up in suburban Boston, Michael enjoys the trials and tribulations that all adolescents go through, from the seemingly tyrannical mother, to girl problems, to run-ins with the law. From there he escapes to college out in Colorado with his best friend, Paul, where they begin to forge new relationships with those around them. It is one girl in particular that has caught Michael's eye, and he alternately pines for her and laments ever meeting her.

    Really Really fun. I just wish more was accomplished in the first book with story progression, but hey, that's what book 2 is for!

    Ask yourself this: If the dead rise tomorrow, are you ready? Do you have a plan? The dead rose, and the living quickly realized that Hollywood-style tactics were the quickest way to find yourself one of the walking dead. Kasey, a strong-willed loner from West Virginia, and Ben, a college student from Pennsylvania, have shared an unlikely friendship over the years. And their bond is stretched to its limits when society collapses under a tide of zombies. But Kasey has something she likes to call The Zombie Plan.

    Story

    The book has a very shallow plot, no large developments or twists, just a slow description of survival in a standard zombie apocalypse.

    It’s the near future, and thanks to a perfect storm of reckless banking practices, hyperinflation, a stock market gone mad, and the negligence of our elected officials, the entire social, political, and economic infrastructure of America has collapsed. Chaos reigns in the streets, medical treatment is no longer available, and a silent coup has placed a dangerous group of men at the helm of a false government. America’s fate is in the hands of those few individuals who have the survival skills, the faith, and the forethought to return this country to the state its founding fathers intended.

    Story

    This is not a story about prepairedness or emergency planning, this is inane hyper-religious babble.... Don't believe me? The story ends 100 years in the future and the Christians are again, to the delight of the character at the time, waging crusades again. This is a waste of time and a credit, will be asking for a return.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Story

    Very drawn out, with very little to keep the reader interested. The story could have been half the length and been much better. Good stories are the ones you want to keep reading or can't put down, it felt like a chore to have to listen to this again until the next credit was ready. Couple all this with the fact that the narrator is annoying and it just isn't entertaining. I can't understand why this has such a high rating, but I'm sad it does because I was tricked into getting it.

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Story

    It was not really a zombie novel which really irritated me, it was more of a ghost story with supernatural powers at work. It was more like King's The Stand, than a good zombie book, I would not recommend this for zombie enthusiasts, but more for people looking for a general humor/horror combo.

    Much more serious than other zombie books, very entertaining throughout. It could use more detail and explanation as well as character development, but it was an entertaining short book that will sate your zombie thirst until DBDA III or The Morningstar Strain III is delivered.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Any additional comments?

    The premise of the story is informative at its base. This is NOT a book for people who wish to learn anything about EMP, it is simply a story about what might happen to a society after that event. I also object to presupposition in the book that the society in question acted appropriately and in a manor that embodies any ideal of what one would hope to see in a crisis. It is the typical authoritarian - live under government edict - response to a disaster, if anything this book should serve more as a warning of what government officials might do in the case of disaster, never mind the disaster itself.

    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

    This story really adds nothing to the post apocalyptic genre, it is seemingly ONLY about the relationship between father and son, which isn't even explored that well. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Lacking in heroes in part and in whole.

    Yes, and I tried, but its hard to while seeing patients, they prefer that you listen to them.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very good story, only lacking in its delivery of actually useful information. It could have used more research and input of realistic facts or detail, but overall it was a very entertaining story.
