Day by Day Armageddon by J.L. Bourne

Day by Day Armageddon is written in diary entries from the perspective of a lone survivor in a post-apocalyptic world that is overrun by the living dead. When a strange epidemic makes its way to the United States, humanity quickly begins to crumble. Panic and chaos ensue but thanks to his military training, he has an upper hand on surviving.

The author, John Bourne has been writing this ongoing zombie saga in between serving as a U.S. Naval officer. His knowledge of tactical survival and weaponry is reflected perfectly within the pages of the novel.

The book gives off a realistic viewpoint of this harrowing and desperate situation - the journal entries seem to come from a man who although scared is determined to survive. The journal itself has doodles around the edges, passages that are circled or underlined, some pages where the entries have been completely scratched out, grammatical problems and even some smudges that you can only assume are blood. It's like a field guide to survival after a zombie invasion.

As a side note, I found it refreshing that it wasn't gory in nature. Most zombie related material is all full of blood and guts. This is a fantastic read for zombie lovers or fans of the horror genre.

I agree... for a zombie story, this was not gory at all
