Bourne gives us a thinking man's 'or woman's' zombie themed horror novel. This is a struggle for survival that draws the reader in by way of the protagonist's journal. You feel for the characters and honestly care about their survival. The author puts his knowledge of the military to good use here as the protagonist relies on careful planning in a post apocalyptic world. This is an exciting novel that left me hungry for the sequel.

Some of the glowing reviews must have been written by family members. These are useless to both the public and the writer. Granted, the book is an earnest, heartfelt effort in an always-enjoyable subgenre. It's a quick read with some good details and sympathetic characters. But definitely a rough, amateurish, frankly semiliterate work. Actual proofreading, instead of using a spell-check program, would have made it more readable.

    Didn't do it for me.

    This book suffered from one inherent flaw--we, as the reader, know that the writer of the diary has survived whatever encounters are described within. No matter how thrilling a reader may perceive the events, there's a diminished sense of danger and urgency whenever everything is in past tense.

    Speaking of the thrills, I found them lacking. The descriptions of the zombies were quite brief and frequently accompanied by the narrator's explanation as to why a particular feature was unsettling. Much like when someone explains why a joke is funny and the humor is lost, the horror falls apart because of the aforementioned explanations of why something should be perceived as scary.

    This book isn't horrible, by any means - the diction is easy to follow and the characters felt fairly real. It felt a little improbable that in a world gone so horribly wrong, the characters in this book had such luck. Thanks to careful planning of the characters, they survived several instances. However, much of their survival can be attributed to finding far more supplies than anticipated.

    Drags on and on and on. The end is not worth the effort.

    This book is a very slow-paced snoozer, and then BAM, the end. When there is finally some conflict, the author finishes it up in a page. I felt cheated. If you want a great book, read Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout. It is great. It has action, zombies, and cool characters.
