A bit on the dull side

Bourne is responsible for my Zombie obsession. The first and second book of the series is awesome. Shattered Glass veers off course into choas leaving me unable to focus on the situations, scenarios, and characters. Say goodbye to the journal format of the last two books and hello to multiple character situations, which tugs on my ADD. LOL! The fascination with the main character's struggle has ended with the elimination of the journal format making the listen not enjoyable, hard to follow, and weak!

The positive side is the closer to several elements of the story and characters.

The book WAS worth the credit!

Who Wrote this book?

Would you try another book from J. L. Bourne and/or Jay Snyder?

Wow, I listened to this book for about the first four hours and then began to realize that this is not what I expected. This is what we waited 2 years for? I can't believe at all this is the same Author who wrote the 1st two books which are among one of my favorites in Zombie culture titles. I loved the series and told all my friends how this one series was an all night scary listen! But this book was not the same timeline format as the first two successful books.
This storyline jumps like a cat dancing on a hot plate as I was back and forth trying to figure out what and why did he bring in new characters and ignore the pre-established ones we loved and cared about. The name Kill as a character said it all as I groaned as bad as the zombie's moaning in the story. Why and how he made the main character act like a whinney B_tch is unforgivable to start and how predictable it played out was no surprise. I have to believe this was a paycheck to the writer as there was no effort put into this book.
How and why The Author changed the format was bad advice, maybe because he was on deployment most of these years, it may have distracted his focus. I would have gladly waited another year for a more suspenseful type story just like the first two books were written.
I know this is a harsh review but I really feel let down as a reader and fan of the series.

Any additional comments?

I would recomend people to just pass on this version and hope there is another creative author that could do a timeline Zombie tale.

Shattered Hourglass: Day by Day Armageddon, Book 3

Very disappointing book. He moved away from the diary format of the first two installments and the story suffered as a consequence. The diary format was new - at least to me - and it worked so well because it allowed you to live in that world in a way I hadn't considered before. This book attempts to increase the scale and move the genre forward, but the pace was awkward and stuttering, the characters two-dimensional and the events predictable. This is just another zombie novel. Read only if you need zombies. If you want something different - read the first two and stop.

Disappointing

Loved the first two books in the trilogy. The first one is really good, and I've never read a zombie type book before. So I'd recommend the first as it is interesting as it is done diary style which really works. This book breaks that style and just isn't any where as good as the first two. Not great but just about worth listening to do you know what happens.

Pretty good!

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book after reading the many, many one star reviews. I don't really think it deserved them, but to each their own. I didn't mind all the entries not being in a diary format - it was great having so many new characters and storylines.
I can't wait to start book 4!
