Publisher's Summary

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 highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling underground cult classic, Day by Day Armageddon, begins where the first novel left off.

BEGIN INTERCEPT

Armies of undead have risen up across the U.S. and around the globe; there is no safe haven from the diseased corpses hungering for human flesh. But in the heat of a Texas wasteland, a small band of survivors attempt to counter the millions closing in around them.

INTERCEPT COMPLETED

Day by day, the handwritten journal entries of one man caught in a worldwide cataclysm capture the desperation--and the will to survive--as he joins forces with a handful of refugees to battle soulless enemies both human and inhuman from inside an abandoned strategic missile facility. But in the world of the undead, is mere survival enough?

    "A great sequel"

    Like the first in the series, this book was outstanding. The main characters struggle for survival continues. Each setting, scenario, and event contains enough exciting and new information to keep the plot thrilling. I hope this author writes more, as the style with which the book was written is highly entertaining.

    "Loved the 2nd book just as much as the first"

    I LOVED the way Jay reads these books! He has a nice deep voice and when he changes it to do a "diff" person I totally feel that I'm hearing someone else. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I am sure I will find myself listening to this again after I get thru the rest of the books in my library.

    "I enjoyed the first book more"

    This falls short of the first story, which was decent. I think that the narrator was incorrectly cast in both books and sounds like a much older man than the character. He does a OK job but sometimes sounds like he trying too hard to make scenes exciting or tense.

    "Still good! Real Good!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    An interesting look at the world post-zombie takeover. Mr. Bourne paints a very realistic picture of what might happen if our world was over run by the undead. While no longer narrated in the third person, this allows the story to expand and engage in a different manner than the first two books. Some have criticized this change from the first two books, but I found it refreshing and not at all distracting. I sure hope that there is a 4th book in the offing...

    How I love the Zombie Apocalypse. This is one of my top 10 series in the genre. If not all but most Zombie books are roughly the same. And many reviews on here will mislead you with words like (brings nothing new to the genre or unoriginal story line) which in turn pisses me off. There books about Zombies!!! If you change much more then Speed of the zombies or how they came about then there not ZOMBIES anymore. Alright that said Book 1&2 are great full marks If your a fellow zombie lover it's a must have. Unfortunately book 3 makes me want to puke, not that it's not alright, it is OK. But next to the first two books it looks like a steaming pile.

    Story
    "Jumped the Shark"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    There were plenty of times the author seemed to have gotten bored especially towards the end. Characters got bland and the Muslim character that's introduced fell into a stereotypical caricature. Also the ending was just brutal


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. L. Bourne again?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    if the material was better... Jay snyder is usually pretty good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.. The first book was great this one was a stinker


    Any additional comments?

    Theres better Zombie fiction out there. Anything by Jonathan Maberry is better than this book.

    "By far the worst of the three"

    Very surprised to see all the glowing reviews. I loved the first book. Liked the second book alot (not quite as well as the first one.

    In Beyond Exile Bourne tries to do too much and ends up with far less. Has too many characters in too many locations that become too confusing trying to keep up with them all. The story jumps around too much without giving you a heads up the road is taking a turn. You are in a flashback before you know it. The climax isn't much of a climax. Leaves way too many unanswered questions.

    I was greatly anticipating the release of this book. Maybe reading the book on paper makes all the jumping around easier to follow. Listening to in just left me confused and wanting it to hurry up and be over. : <

    Story
    "Killroy gets his official nickname"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Day by Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile to be better than the print version?

    I personally prefer audiobooks and Jay Snyder delivers another outstanding performance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed the charchter development and how the steady growth of emotion through the eyes Killroy


    Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the addition of the character who gives Killroy his nickname. The two play well off of each other and open up a new avenue of friendship.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Even more so than in the first book as the character development only continues to improve and add to a great story


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this one in one sitting and then had to wait months for Shattered Hourglass.
