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.

The second book in the DBD series continues the day to day struggle of the protagonist life after the Zombie Apocalypse. It is well written and the narrative by Jay Snyder is great.

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.

Unique way of reading about the Zombie Apocalypse through the diary entries of an unknown soldier. Jay Snyder's performance is well done.

When the Zombie Apocalypse came, one country had shut down its borders in response to a major terrorist attack. Now Fortress Britain is the last bastion of the living - with 50 million beleaguered survivors facing down a world of seven billion animated corpses. And one international team of elite special operators - supremely trained and armed, always the most skilled, resolved, and unstoppable amongst us - are humanity's last best hope for survival....

Great zombie apocalypse story. Graphic enough for the scare factor while building the characters into believable, but flawed individuals.

All Dr. Brianna Lewis wants is a cup of coffee. Coffee to make slaving away in her cell culture lab at Green Fields Biotech a little more bearable on a Friday afternoon when everyone is home already. What she doesn't count on is a group of terrorists blowing up all the entrances to the building and taking her and a select few others hostage. Bree soon finds herself conflicted. Not only does she know their charismatic leader, she also starts to suspect that there is a lot more to this than the hunt for an illegal bioweapon....

Any additional comments?

Wait for it. Biggest issue other reviewers appear to have is either with the lack of zombies, or the main character's apparent flip flop on her sexual orientation. I'll admit to having restarted the book thinking I missed something when the story moved to Brianna's affair with Nate. Given all that I found the book compelling, even with the absence of massive quantities of zombies and an apparent switch hitting heroine. I've listened to a wide range of zombie apocalypse literature over the last few years some excellent and others that left me wondering why I wasted a credit. Adrienne Lecter is building a base for her future books, and its solid enough that I will be purchasing the next one in this series.

If you need some zombies killed, who do you call? The Lucky Thirteen. A few weeks have passed since the events in Aurora, and Bree, Nate, and the gang are back on the road. The odd mall to raid, cattle to herd, provisions to deliver - all no match for our trusty group of scavengers. The world is yours for the taking when killing zombies becomes routine. Yet with temperatures rising in late spring, a new menace appears on the post-apocalyptic theater of war.

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

Yes, this is a great addition to the series

What did you like best about this story?

Lead characters are flawed, but human. It makes the story more enjoyable to see Bree grow into a kickass heroine that still makes mistakes, can get scared and overwhelmed but continues to fight even when out gunned.

Which scene was your favorite?

Final climatic fight between the Lucky 13 and the government soldiers it's a nail biter, the only reason I gave this a four rating as opposed to a five is that Adrienne Lecter finished the book on one hell of a cliff hanger. I'll be waiting very impatiently for the resolution to how the book ended.

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.

Sean Runnette's voice is worth the price of admission, put it together with Mark Tufo's well crafted story and this book shines.I hadn't purchased a zombie novel prior to this one, just not a big fan of the I eat brains genre. I'm now an addicted follower of the Zombie Fallout series. Tufo successfully blends the gore factor of a good horror with snips of well placed humor that crack me up even taking into a count the growing body count from the zombie apocalypse.Tufo has crafted Mike Talbot, as a cracked protagonist. He has the survival smarts of a tough ex-marine that gets regularly sideswiped by a wide array of germ related phobias.Before I'd even finished the first chapter, I was hooked from his diatribe over having to put clean clothing on over his soap laden body to the patho of the young zombie girl in the Walmart loading bay.The book moves briskly along and Runette handles the different voices masterfully. Be warned that while the humor is plentiful, its doesn't over shadow the grim and violent reality of a world that has run a muck.There a too numerous zombie books on today's market to mention, but if you like your brains mixed with just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek humor please flip a credit for Zombie Fallout.
