Publisher's Summary

Start intercept: Sporadic reports indicate chaos and violence spreading through U.S. cities. An unknown evil is sweeping the planet. The dead are rising to claim the Earth as the new dominant species in the food chain. Intercept complete.

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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Finally, Someone gets it right!

What made the experience of listening to Day By Day Armageddon the most enjoyable?

The story is very well told. Each day in the journal builds and builds.

What did you like best about this story?

My favorite part about the story is that the characters are very believable and you find yourself questioning your own survival tactics.

What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator does a great job. This book doesn't need exaggerated voice acting. It feels more real that way.

If you could take any character from Day By Day Armageddon out to dinner, who would it be and why?

The author! He is outstanding!

Any additional comments?

Give this book a chance! You will be happy you did. --> StevenX

Best zombie book I have read!

Would you listen to Day By Day Armageddon again? Why?

I've already listened to it twice.

What other book might you compare Day By Day Armageddon to and why?

World War Z was also a great book. The second book of this series is even better than the first so make sure to check that out after listening to this one.

What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

The story is told through the eyes of a military officer and Snyder's voice fits that perfectly.

Couldn't stop listening

This is the best zombie book ever. It is non stop action and excitement. I simply could not stop listening, and as soon as I'd finish DBDA1 I downloaded the sequal. Great Fun!

Gripping and Fast Moving

Bourne has written a tidy little zombie story here with a new twist; first person narrative. The daily diary reveals the unfolding events in a more immediate and personal way as compared to most of todays tiresome undead novels and stories. Snyder reads as if he has just uncovered the diary and is sharing it with us.

Zombies Ahead

If you could sum up Day By Day Armageddon in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining, suspensful, disappointed

What was one of the most memorable moments of Day By Day Armageddon?

sneaking in the boat to get food and shooting a zombie with kill me on his apron.

What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

He tone was straight on, the way he protrayed the various moments of hysteria

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

Not really an extreme reaction, but it did scare me a time or two, making me sit on the edge of my chair hoping everything turned out all right. I did hooray when he took down the gang making threats against his group.

Any additional comments?

I have never read a Zombie book until this one. I was hesitant at first but it was highly recommeded to me. I love the way it was written. While all things have to come to an end, I wish it could have gone on. But it left to the imagination who was the winner in the zombie war.

Great story, great performance

What did you love best about Day By Day Armageddon?

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.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to the second book.

Day By Day , thank goodnesss it was only 6 hours

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.
