"There is zombie fiction and then there is crawl-out-of-the-grave-and-drag-you-to-hell zombie fiction. Day by Day Armageddon is hands down the best zombie book I have ever read. Dawn of the Dead meets 28 Days Later doesn't even come close to describing how fantastic this thriller is. It is so real, so terrifying, and so well written that I slept with not one, but two loaded Glocks under my pillow for weeks afterwards. J. L. Bourne is the new king of hardcore zombie action!" (Brad Thor, New York Times #1 best-selling author)
The story gets you involved, as soon as things start to bad (at the beginning of the story of course) you're drawn in first of all by Jay Snyder's great performance. I was truly impressed by the overall experience.
Looking forward to the second book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who's read

Overall, I enjoyed Jay Snyder's performance. He kept the story flowing and made it very interesting.
My Zombie Diary.
Wow, very hard to listen to. Way to technical and in no way interesting. 6 hours and 38 min. A waste of time unless you are sleeping while listening.
Similar to World War Z...if you liked that...this and the sequel really are disturbing....listening to the Walking Dead book now and it is very slow compared to Day by Day....if the goal of the book is to engage and make you think....well this book is spot on!
This was a good book, but not as great, in my opinion, as many of the other reviews said it is. It ends quite abruptly, obviously setting you up for the next book. I don't think it was worth the sixteen bucks I paid for it, I feel a bit cheated for the price. I wouldn't mind listening to the rest of the books in the series, (it's not awful, a decent story line) however I don't think they'd be worth the price. I'd pay maybe eight bucks for it, but not seventeen. I also would have liked it to be narrated with a little more emotion.
I got this book because others reviewed and said it was good, and entertaining. I have to desagree. I thought the book was weak. The plot was weak, the characters, had little appeal, and the ending was very unsatisfying. I wish I had not rented it. Of course the language made me not be able to listen to it with the kids in the car, which is always a problem also, for a busy mom.
When the reading first started I wasn't too sure about this one. I thought the reader was playing the lead person in the story as a cocky twenty something with all the answers, and figured this would probably get boring before too long....But I was wrong. He played it just right. The lead character was a cocky twenty something with all the answers...Until he discovered just how few answers he actually had about what was happening to the world around him.
Actually I have this book and the next and in reality it's one big book cut into two. I drive truck for a living and this book just grabs me so much that I could only listen to it when driving on very low traffic roads...Mostly at night....What a fun freight...
The flow and pace of the book took some getting used to. When you realize that the book is written as a diary or a daily log of sorts it becomes easier to follow. In terms of real life take away this book will provide real world ideas to prepare for any sort of apocalypse. Written by a naval officer and survival expert this is a must read for the entertainment as well as the practical survival preparation. Great book!
Completely disapointed! I thought I would listen to the details of the anticipated last battle, Armagedon but to find something else.. My above rating (the median chosen; so to have least effect) was made just to allow me to access writting these comments..
