Day By Day Armageddon is a crazy book. It’s basically the journal of a guy as he struggles to navigate the apocalypse. I enjoyed the fact he had military experience, which made some of his situations easier to believe as far as his responses to things.
I think some people may have issues with the way the zombies are written in this book, but the reality is, there is no right way to write zombies. Since they don’t exist, every author can write their zombies how they want them. The zombies can have whatever abilities the author chooses for them to have. In some books, zombies are slow and shambling; in others, the zombies are as fast as Usain Bolt! Personally, I like reading zombie books where the monsters can do things they couldn’t in other books I’ve read, so I’m all for the variety.
I don’t normally read books written in journal form because it has been very hit or miss for me, but I took a chance on this one and I’m glad I did. The narrator isn’t a wordsmith. He’s an average guy stuck in a shitty situation and doing his best to survive, despite his spelling mistakes. I feel it gives a level of authenticity to the story that coincides with its format. I’m not saying there are tons of spelling errors in the story, but an average amount for an average person.
There’s plenty of action in Day by Day Armageddon. Which should be expected with a title and subject matter such as this. I enjoyed it. I liked where they decided to hole up and thought many of the ideas were good.
I would recommend Day by Day Armageddon to anyone who likes zombie books, doesn’t mind journal format, and is ok with zombies that don’t follow popular characteristics.
