This is a great start to an exciting story. Great pace and I had a difficult time putting it down. Lots of ideas presented in this and the subsequent books have been lifted by other writers and film-makers. I had to wait for the 2nd and 3rd installments to be written, but you can get them all at once. Save yourself the trip and check all three out now.

beeeeeeeest zombie boooook eeevvveeerrr read it!!!! it's amazing!!!!!! shame the library dose not have the second book )-: hopefully they get it sooooooon!!!!!!

This is a very very good book. It's a bit unusual since it's written in a diary format, but once you get into it, you just never want to put it down. I recommend to anyone who likes Zombie/Survival themed books. :)

This was, in general, a fairly good zombie tale, with plenty of suspense.

One thing I found distracting was the editing. In particular, the error that kept popping up was this:

Zombies should be wandering around. In this book, the zombies wondered around. It's a spelling error that changes the meaning of the word. Every time the author meant to use the word wander, he used wonder instead. This is not the fault of J.L. Bourne. I do not expect authors to be good spellers. The responsibility of the author is to craft a good story. Bourne does this just fine. My beef is with Bourne's editor. The responsibility of the editor is to CATCH THE SPELLING ERRORS!

This was not the only editing error, but it was certainly the most distracting. Any error in any book causes me to stop reading, lose the flow of the story, and fixate on the fact that an error exists in a professionally edited book. Most books have zero errors. Some books have one tiny one (like a misplaced apostrophe). Any more than the one tiny one and I start to get irrationally frustrated with a book.

This is unfortunate; I read this book a few years ago, and the part I remember most about it is the image I have in my head of zombies, shambling around, deep in thought...

For his first book, Bourne pulls all the stop and created a journal that could have as easily been mine. It shows the zombie genre is truly dead and proud.
