Whenever a message is transmitted, Bourne feels the need to precede it with a very lengthy stream of meaningless and repetitive characters. Your email address will not be published. It is on a page per event bend. I have a feeling I will finish this book, but it will be like “I have to read one more chapter to see if anything happens”. To all the “literary genius critics” out there

We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve. Soulless figures walked about, searching, reacting to the firings of dead synapses.
Man merkt dem Autor seine Vergangenheit als Soldat an. In a desperate bid to take dayy the continental United States ramageddon where hordes armagedcon undead now dominate the ravaged human population – a Navy commander leads a global mission to the heart of the pandemic. The radical departure makes me wonder if it was even the same author. Think he needs to slow it back down and not write books like he has to write his own mission reports.
I tend to be easier on new authors because they deserve the encouragement for trying to entertain me. It got a little better in the second half, and had some horrific moments, but overall it changed from being a small band of survivors type story to a military strategy course with spy thriller type action.
The key event at the end in particular felt over in a minimum amount of pages.
Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Horror I won’t spoiler it, but I wish there had been more time spent on China and less on Hawaii – that was just Feb 23, Candace rated it liked it. A snake struck out as the mechanic entered the foliage, slapping dead flesh and leaving two small holes in its nearly gone calf muscle.
We get it – the military uses acronyms and you know a bunch of them.
An operation was at this very moment underway to uncover the chain of events that brought humanity to the brink, maybe beyond. Well, I have to admit that the first two books were much better than this one.
TEOTWAWKI Blog: Review: Day by Day Armageddon: Shattered Hourglass
Day by Day Armageddon: The hourglaws still goes through the battle of surviving the undead and we revisit some of our previous books characters but now we have a wealth of new ones too.

The nature of the infection, it’s origins, and the way the zombies act are all unique enough in my mind to file this under the previously stated houdglass something to the zombie lit genre” category.
Jan 13, Holden Attradies rated it really liked it Shelves: My Review This is book three in a series and I would advise reading the first two if you haven’t already.
In fact, though I’ve read the entire series so far, for me this was oddly hard to follow.
Shattered Hourglass (Day by Day Armageddon, book 3) by J L Bourne
I almost always leave at least 3 stars or more, if only for effort. We still hear from Kil in journal format however these entries are few and far between.
This storyline jumps like a cat dancing on a hot plate as I was back and forth trying to figure out what and why did he bring in new characters and ignore the pre-established ones we loved and cared about. Kil has always valued life and has never hesitated to help others, but now in Shattered Hourglass, he has realized that some sacrifices must be made for the greater good.

Yes it could be a movie. As the third in a trilogy, the characters and plot are established yet evolve effectively and in a overcrowded genre such as this, it is even more remarkable that this book and series stands above all the mediocre zombie novels.
Instead, we get two groups of special forces guys handling the majority of the action, as well as a few other stories interwoven into the narrative. We do get the odd This book takes the form of a straight novel instead of a diary from the outset which gave me hope that we would see more of my favourite characters-John and Annabelle. If you fall into the latter category, I’m sure Penguin Books has something new you will enjoy.
