I'm not a book snob, or a zombie book snob either, for that matter, but there is something to be said for plot, pacing, and general proofreading. "Zournal #1-It All Started" is the play-by-play account of the first days of the zombie outbreak, as told in the journal of our young narrator. I should have known I would not enjoy the humor of this book when the author likened it to that of Mark Tufo's, another zombie author whose work I do not enjoy. When Merritt got to the descriptions of the soap- [...]
This is the first book in a six book series based around a Zombie Apocalypse. People become infected with a virus that causes their capillaries to burst and turn their skin a blue color while their eyes turn red from the broken capillaries. Body temperatures soar at first. Cannibalism and insanity come next. Steve wanders out into the middle of this mess armed with some stolen steak knives (you know, the ones they hand out at the Outback with that Delicious Bread!) and a dull samurai sword. Look [...]
ZournalHaha hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy reference taking a towel as an essential was a really funny joke but the rest of the book was brutal as Steve struggles to survive with zombies that are blueish and run plus scream alerting other zombies to your present. These zombies also have amazing hearing so any noise and they are onto you made worse by the fact that everyday life has become silence. Interesting and a page turner.I got this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book is in the form of the journal of Steve, an ordinary guy that wakes up with a bad hangover to discover the end of the world occurred while he was sleeping it off. Since he really can't do anything, he goes back to sleep.The horror of what happened hits him when he wakes up the second time. He sees "lumps" when he looks out the window. He finds his neighbor (the woman on the cover) in the tub having taken a bite of her cat. He knows he is in trouble because he doesn't have any weapons ex [...]
There were a few things I liked about this book - the plot was mostly enjoyable with a few interesting characters (the main one, Steve, had a very dark sense of humour and eventually developed into an effective leader), but in truth it was a complete 'zombie massacre' of the English language. Unfortunately the author either did not understand or did not believe in punctuation, so opted not to use any. I mean there ARE full stops, but not necessarily at the end of sentences. Commas are largely ab [...]
Who edited this thing?The storyline is fairly plausible; if even predictable. But, it seems the author just got tired, or careless, the more he wrote. Missing commas made some interesting sentence structures, and a number of WTF did he mean by that moments. There was one sentence that was NINE lines long. And yes, I counted.Inconsistent, erroneous word usage (site instead of sight, for example) , really funny capitalization errors and unexplained acronyms abounded. Incomplete sentences were also [...]
Great First BookI lived the main character, great storyline, lots of action. The humor infused in the main characters dialogue with himself reminded me of early Tufo novels. I highly recommend reading this book!
An introduction to a diseased, not dead, raging lunatic not zombie apocalypse.Good characters, dealing with a really unusual situation, as can be expected will differ in how they deal with the situation. The author has written some amazing characters with a depth of skill and ability that we all wish we could display in a similar spot. The characters also have that rare quality, the way people instinctively trust and like them. This is tremendously important in a character driven storyline - you [...]
Good story, and grammarI enjoyed the story and have purchased the next book in the series, though the punctuation was atrocious and the spelling wasn't great either. My advice to this up and coming author is that he invest in a good editor, so as not to needlessly detract from what is an otherwise entertaining story. Other than that, good job!
Keep readingOk. So I only started reading this book because the author followed me in . It was so strange to me that an author would follow basically nobody who has very few followers. To be honest, from the cover, I probably wouldn't have ever tried this book. To be even more honest, I almost didn't read past the first couple of pages. I stuck with it though, and again with the being honest - I'm really glad I did. So, give it a shot and keep reading when you're thinking it's pretty ridiculous [...]
