It's been a long time since a book has made me as angry as this one did.

I don't think I'm the overly critical sort. I have expectations, and I want them to be met, but I think that I'm willing to compromise. If a book isn't the best written but has a good story, or if the writing is gorgeous, but the story is kinda "meh", I can appreciate the book for what it is and move on.

But this was just painfully, ridiculously bad. This book's gimmick is If I could give this book negative stars, I would. This book's gimmick is that it's the daily journal entries of a person who is trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. That's it. The journal format is what's supposed to make this book different from all the other zombie lit out there. The book kinda hinges on that aspect, so it's important to do it right. And right there, that hinge-y part, is where the author failed to tighten the screws, and the whole thing fell apart almost as soon as I opened it up.

Here's why: Writing in the style of journal entries is not the same as 1st person narration. They aren't interchangeable. Similar, sure, but again, NOT the same thing. A journal is where we write our own thoughts, for ourselves, so we don't need to explain things to ourselves that we already know.

Writing in journal form is tricky, because the reader DOESN'T know what the journal writer does, so info needs to be conveyed in a subtle, indirect way by context. Not like these: 1. Bryce is a Navy submarine officer. He really helped me out on a great deal on salvage parts off the old diesel boats when I was installing those panels in my house a few years back. Doesn't he know who Bryce is? Obviously he remembers the help that good ol' Bryce gave him, so why explain it to himself in his own journal?

And WHAT panels? If we're all gung-ho about explaining everything to ourselves, let's explain what the hell the panels are. I seem to have forgotten Or that she's the youngest? Why is he telling himself this? The ONLY reason I can think of to list out the tools used for installation of anything is so that it can be taken back apart later. But this would only really apply to those tools needed later. Why would anyone including Sir Journalist need to know that a tape measure and a pencil were used specifically?

No really, I want to know. This is not a rhetorical question. Well, yes it is, because nobody needs to ever know that.

It's fucking pointless drivel inserted for "authenticity" that needs none. You installed security bars. I don't need to know if they are black or silver, who manufactured them or what the weather was like as they were being installed unless that has some actual bearing on the story.

Mom was hysterical. I had to talk to dad to get any words in. He told me that things were fine and that they were as safe as possible. They hadn't seen any signs of the disease, but told me that there were reports in town of possible outbreak 10 miles away. Look, here's how you do this: "I finally got through to mom.

She was hysterical and I had to talk to my stepdad in order to get any words in edgewise. Thank God they are safe - dad said the nearest reports of outbreak are at least 10 miles away from them.

I held the shutter down with the bottom of my boot just as the first creature started beating on the metal. They would attract more.

The plastic zip ties in my pocket would do no good, as I had nothing on the ground to secure the door to. I glanced over to the corner of the room where I found a mop and some nylon string. Walking over to the corner, I kept my right foot along the lip of the door, and my left for balance. Grabbing the mop, I wedged it between the rollers that made the door slide up smoothly. Using the twine I secured it in place. There was a heavy box on the shelf full of plastic bottles of mouthwash.

I sat the box on the lip of the door where my foot was. This wouldn't work forever, but it would have to work for now. The guy is fighting for his life against an undead horde Exactly when does he have time to take notes on his daily activities? When does he find the time to put them in essay form? Just for fun, let's re-write this one too I looked around the room and found a mop and some nylon string. Keeping a foot on the door to hold it closed, I edged over to the mop, jammed it into the door rollers, and tied the string around it to keep it in place.

I weighted the door down with a heavy box for good measure. Probably won't last, but better than nothing. I get that it's hard to write fiction in journal entries. There's a lot of info that only the person writing the journal would know, like who Bryce is, or Jenny, or that the stepfather isn't the same "Dad" as "Dad", and somehow that information needs to be conveyed realistically to the reader. But that's the challenge you take on when you go for that style.

It's NOT the same as epistolary fiction using letters or other correspondence, because those are intended to be read by someone else, and therefore the explanation works, is even necessary.

The fact is that if Bourne had specified that the journal was being kept for posterity, much of my issues would not even exist. If you're purposefully writing a journal for someone else to read at some point, it makes sense to write it with explanations for them. But unless the purpose of the journal changes at some point, that's not the case.

And honestly, even if it DID, it doesn't explain the explanations in the part that came before the decision to explain to future readers. You can be the "[ View all 89 comments.

With a second plotline and more action, this could have been much better and I am Just your average zombie survival autobiography.

The military part and its realism is extreme, because Bourne was a real life-soldier and integrated much of his profound knowledge in the novel, gave it a quite kind of fictional autobiographic touch of how a specialist would deal with the situation, but ignoring some of the laws of storytelling made it much less successful than it could have been.

So you can imagine my surprise when I became absolutely engrossed in a book about surviving a plague of walking dead. Simply put this is more then just a zombie novel and this romance reader loved every minute of it. DBDA has been written from the first person and in the form of a journal which for me increased the suspense factor.

It all starts out rather mundanely with day to day life stuff and a few ominous mentions like this one "It seems that something is going on in China; the local news reported some type of influenza virus sweeping them over there. Why is he telling himself this? The ONLY reason I can think of to list out the tools used for installation of anything is so that it can be taken back apart later.

It is told through the main protagonist's journal entries; we never find out his name.

He's a naval officer who was just returning home to Texas from visiting his parents in Arkansas when the zombie apocalypse hits. The story follows him as he watches news coverage of what begins as a violent strain of influenza in China, to the quarantine of the US being breached, and the government breaking down.

He starts off alone hold up in his fortified home afraid that he will lose his sanity long before the dead get to him, but eventually meets another survivor on his block. The duo make a daring escape from their overrun area and travel from place to place, staying only as long as is safe, and having a few near death experiences along the way.

John and Annabell, a miniature greyhound, become the protagonist's whole world and they all work together to survive, hoping to find some working form of government, or some place in civilization that hasn't fallen. Without spoiling it for you, they meet some people along the way as they move from :safe-house" to "safe house". The story grips you and reads almost like a movie.

I was anxious for their safety and waiting for the jump-scare with every sentence I read. I've been come attached to the characters in this book and now I am committed to reading the entire series to see how their survival progresses. Amazing read. If you are looking for a realistic account of life after the collapse of civilization this book is for you. Probably my favorite or on my top 5 list for best zombie book. This is one of my favorite Zombie apocalypse books.

The way it's written is one of the most creative and intuitively difficult ways to write a narrative. The page by page journaling of a survivor in the middle of the worst possible scenario. I wasn't expecting much but I actually liked it and I'll read the sequel.

Bourne, the creator of the Day by Day Armageddon series, has never failed to entertain. Sadly, with no book four in the near future, we were given this short story. In Grey Fox, Kil, the teller of the tale, is a Runner. He fetches, for a price, items no longer created after the scrimmage between men and dead men. The first two books were fascinating, giving weapon details that no other author provided and actually teaching other characters to work the machines.

Intricacies like this made Bourne's monologue realistic. Book three left us lingering with rudimentary ideas on how the undead returned, making it a let down of a ending. There was nothing definitive and the worse possible scenario seemed to take root. Fans, myself included were left upset, so I'm thinking that's where Bourne just quit. Instead of coming up with something plausible in our apocalyptic worlds , he gave us Grey Fox.

The story itself stitched nothing together for those who've read the previous books. It was just a year jump into Kil's journal. Bourne's incredible style remained. The guy's an amazing storyteller, but his offering of futuristic tidbits and no solution made for an unhappy read; too much is missing. So in the immortal words of Forrest Gump, "That's all I've got to say about that. It was okay. Keith originally picked it up at the library for me, since it was about zombies.

This was apparently based on a serial fiction blog. I think I might have liked it better reading it in that format. Good book if you don't consider the below average ending. Nonetheless read this without any inference and you would certainly enjoy it. Day by Day Armageddon by K. Food, water, weapons and ammunition are stockpiled and he is constantly planning his next step.

This planning is a good thing because apparently no place is safe for long, and as he gathers a few other survivors up as he moves along, they eventually stumble upon an underground missile silo and take refuge there but there are still problems that these people have to confront and deal with in order to survive. As with many zombie stories there was plenty of action and violence but what makes this book stand out for me was the main character, his analytical methods, his constant calculating of the odds and the almost believable way in which he records the action gave the book a realistic slant.

A few very creepy moments such as underwater zombies kept the ick factor up and made for an thrilling read. This is, as usual, the first in a trilogy, and you can be sure that I will be getting the next book soon. Day by Day Armageddon is a fast paced story about an ex Navy Seal who struggles against undead hordes to survive. An unknown evil is sweeping the planet.
