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!"

Great book, interesting format

I love zombie books, and Day By Day Armageddon is the best one Ive read so far. Feels much more "real" than most other zombie books. It is written in a different format- all individual journal entrys. At first I thought it was a tad disjointed, but I really came to like it. The book does really leave off in the middle of the story (certainty waiting for a sequel) - but didn't leave me feeling dissatisfied as many books awaiting a sequel do.

Freakin' AWESOME!

I've listened to a ton of audiobooks while I commute, and am a big fan of the zombie apocalypse genre. I've never written a review before, but this book was so great that I just had to write one. This book is a masterpiece. Also, the second book is probably better than the first in my opinion. I started listening to this story and was so consumed by the story that I didn't want to leave the car. I got my wife to start reading it, and even though she is skeptical about this genre, she was absolutely consumed by it as well. BUY IT!

A fantastic peice really cant wait for more of this story (it leaves things hanging in not exactly a cliffhanger but not far off). Really do reccomend this one for fans of this genre.

A absolute must for all Zombie fans

I've had this book on my wish list for months, I always chose another and keep this on the back burner just in case I couldn't find something I liked the look of. So the day finally came last week and WOW. This book is one of the best I've listened too so far, so much so I almost finished it in one sitting. There was even a point one night why in bed I had to turn it off because it made me feel so unsettled and on edge. having said that I've immediately downloaded the 2nd book and can't wait to be re-submerged back into every desperate, horrifying, life threatening moment, and even at times laughing out loud?

Man I hope this guy is around when the apocalypse comes!!!!

The story is told in the format of a diary and works extremely well in the telling of this tale. From the first page you are engaged and soon lose yourself in the struggle to survive. What I really liked about this book is the minimal amount of time trying to explain the dead rising. There was a virus it spread and dead people started walking. Well that’s good enough for me.

Like all good Zombie survival stories the plot is more about the people alive then the shambling rotting dead. They play a vital part in the story but they are not the story. Day by Day Armageddon delivers a fast and action filled story that hits the ball out of the park.

The story was not bad I didn't like how he constantly struggles with having to do what's necessary. And the person who narrated was monotone and felt like he was just reading off a script
