Publisher's Summary

The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked and infected, and they died. Then they came back. Nowhere is safe from the undead.
As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalized. Martial law, curfews, and rationing were implemented. It wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned.
Bill Wright broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees, he watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead.
He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves, he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, a decades-old conspiracy, and his unwitting part in it.
This is the first volume of his journal.

Enjoyed enough to buy 2nd immediately

I really enjoyed the writing style of this Z book. the narrator was perfect (I always listen @ 1.25). This book made me wonder how I would have reacted if all alone in the world... don't think I would have faired as well. He ended up being a lot more resourceful than I first thought he would be and I wondered at times when he would start questioning his role. glad book 2 is on audible and looking forward to the listen. I see there are more of this series on kindle but not on audible as yet.
I have listened to almost all of the other Z books available... Zombie Fallout .. Adrian's Undead Diaries, Extinction Edge, DEAD, Grahams Resolution to name a few. different rhythm and pace to the story but interesting.

London, Zombies and the start of great series

This is not for everyone, if you need to have your zombie apocalypse books list every make of gun and ammunition each time a shot is fired, or you need to have a lead character who's been preparing for the end of the world all their life and happens to have a bunker in their garden then move on. If you fancy a book that shows the end of the world from the perspective of a normal guy in a flat in London and how he copes with the end of the world and what to do next. It is faced paced and you will finish it in no time as it was hard to put down until the end!

It's different...

First off this isn't your normal Zombie Appocolipse/end of world novel. It's the diary of a normal man with a broken leg just trying to survive. It's not full of gore or daring do just day to day survival which I guess most of us would be doing if the ZA became a reality.

Yes it can be a bit slow in parts but I think this just adds to the story and allows the back drop of the emergency measures put in place by the powers that be to develope.

There's not a lot of people Involved and to be fair not a lot of zombie action but this doesn't detract from the story in anyway in fact it makes the novel seem more 'real' or at least what my idea of a ZA would be like in the first few days.

On a side note while I listened to this I was actually immobile due to foot trauma and found myself being much more sympathetic to Bill.

It's worth a credit and I will probably get part 2 in the future.
