Book Blog Tour: Day By Day Armageddon by J.L. Bourne

October 9th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


Thanks to PocketBooks for arranging this tour!  They are also providing 1 copy for me to giveaway.  Go check out the giveaway post to enter.

I give this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars

Description from the back of the book: In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man’s struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them.

Like the book blurb says this book is written in the style of the main character starting off the new year with a resolution to keep a journal.  The journal chronicles the appearance of a disease that is turning people into zombies and his fight for survival.  Along his journey he meets a fellow survivor, John, who joins him in trying to figure out what to do and how to survive in this frightening new world.  I enjoyed the book and I have to admit it did give me goosebumps at certain parts.  It makes you wonder just how prepared are you for any sort of major disaster and would you be able to survive.  My main issue with the book is the abrupt ending.  I did not realize that this was going to be part of a series so when the book just stops I found it disconcerting.

One interesting note about the author is that he is currently an active duty US naval officer as is the main character in the book.  Occassionally the details provided on some of the more military or technical issues was a little much though.
