Dark Days: Apocalypse Z, Book 2 | [Manel Loureiro]

Dark Days: Apocalypse Z, Book 2

The end of the world has come not with a bang or a whimper, but with the guttural snarl of walking corpses hungry for human flesh. The "lucky" survivors flee an unstoppable virus spreading death and societal collapse across the globe. As the rules of civilization crumble, a lawyer, a pilot, and a nurse become comrades-in-arms in the fight against extinction. But not every enemy wears a rotting face, and anyone who doesn’t have your back just might have your head. Humankind’s twilight is at hand, and these are indeed...dark days.

    "So disappointed ~"

    After waiting and waiting for this book, I am disappointed in both the quality of the writing and of the story. The second half of the book seemed as if it were from another, much less qualified, writer, who seemed to think that variations of the "f" word made compelling reading.

    "I didn't think it could be worse than the first"

    I read the first book and wasn't very impressed. It wasn't bad, it was just average. When I saw that Dark Days was on sale and that it was getting good reviews I figured "Hey, maybe the author upped his game" I was wrong.

    The thing about a good horror/scifi/fantasy novel is that the author takes a fictional world and makes it believable. The more believable the book the easier it is for the reader to be sucked in. It's when the author writes sloppily that the reader gets ejected from the story. That's what happens with Dark Days.

    One of my biggest pet peeves is the fact that the author can't keep his timeline straight. On a number of occasions it's stated that the main characters had been out in the world for over a year, but if you read the first book, there is no way that the first book had a years worth of story in it.

    There really is no character growth and the main character is rather a wimp. If you expect me to believe that he survived the zombie apocalypse for so long and didn't even learn how to shoot a gun properly or at very least kill a few zombies with a club, you would be asking too much. Then there is the spots of "info dumping", lame political games, and so on and you get a rather poor storyline.

    On the bright side Nick did a great job at reading the story and actually made it bearable to get through this hunk of poor story telling

    Story
    "Not a complete story"
    What would have made Dark Days better?

    The ending. What happened? It's like a TV show that, due to either waning viewership, competition in time slot or both, has the rug pulled out from under it. Think Jericho: Amazing show, great execution, but due to being opposite American Idol, it was dropped. The writers had to come up with an ending, and fast. That's AFTER the first season ended on a MAJOR cliffhanger without any plans to continue the show by the network.

    In any case, Apocalypse Z: Dark Days does this very thing. Manel Loureiro seems to have had a deadline waggled about threateningly by a publisher, and the ending was thrown in with all the grace of an egg hitting a car windshield. That's literally my only complaint.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Alaska Undead: Mitigation


    Which scene was your favorite?

    As a reader/listener, nothing is more satisfying than when the author chooses to illuminate the WHY behind all the questions, especially ones left unanswered by book #1.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dark Days?

    The scene where the nun is murdered seems to be sort of arbitrary and ill-placed, if even necessary. I understand that with the hastened ending, this loose end had to be tied up, but the reader feels little sympathy for the character being in a coma for most of the second book.


    Any additional comments?

    The first book was actually pretty awesome. The second left me wondering how the author could have allowed a story this nicely written to fall apart. There's no sense of completion, resolution or advancement. Still, it's a good story overall, despite the holes in book 2.

    "So so attempt to create something!"

    Not very good. The sophomoric attempt is really weak and not the lest bit listenable! Can I have my money back!
