4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Al Zombie on Jan. 11 2007
Format: Paperback
Great story about a U.S Air Force pilot who, when the dead start to rise, made the decision to try and survive on his own rather than sit in a military bunker, waiting to be saved. Was this a good choice? Read the book and find out, I am sure you will love it.

Written as a diary, it gives the reader a different, and very refreshing perspective. Once you start reading it, I am sure that like me, you will not want to put it down. The story never gets dull or boring, nor does it go to the extreme in a vain attempt to simply keep you reading. The characters are well built, interesting, and realistic. Unlike many books, the characters in the story feel as if they could be real, thus helping the reader really connect with them and their situation.

This is the first of at least two books. The other is expected to be published sometime in early 2010 as "Beyond Exile: Day by Day Armageddon". There is also one chapter (located at the end of the book) of another book being written by the same author, of another story set in the same universe as this book. The other book is to be called "Dead Land". Though no release date has been set as of yet.

Though one thing is sure, by the time you get to the end of this first book, you will be dying to get your hands on the second one to see what happens next!

Format: Paperback
This book delivers on all the aspects of zombie apocalypse fiction that I enjoy: a rapidly disintegrating world, scary scenarios of survival, and more or less traditional zombies. The format of the main character capturing his story in a journal can be disjointed and clumsy but here it works. And to be honest, this is not high-fiction but it sure is entertaining and fast-paced. Lines like this give you a taste for what is in store: "America, I'm sorry to report that despite our best efforts, this disease has broken the bonds of our containment measures. It is no longer safe to inhabit larger cities. Safe zones are being established on the outskirts of high population areas and will be open to those not infected." If you are fan of zombie and/or post-apocalyptic fiction, you will enjoy this contribution. I also encourage you to visit the author's website, [...], for his list of other books in this genre.

Format: Paperback
The most interesting thing about this novel is that it's written journal/blog style, with dated and timed entries, so you can easily follow the timeline of the story.

It follows a USN pilot who wakes up from a hangover on News Years Day to learn about a plague sweeping through Asia, which eventually makes its way to North America. Being a military type, he goes out and stocks up on food, water and ammo before most other people think to, then gets to work on turning his home into a fortress. Eventually he is forced from his home by a series of events beyond his control and seeks to survive the unsurvivable.

Overall, I thought it was a good novel, but not a great one. The characters suffer emotionally as well as physically, and the author is technically sound when it comes to explaining weapons and planes. but there are errors that irked me. It was all the little things that struck me as odd. How does a US Navy pilot not even vaguely know about all the major military installations in the state where he is stationed? To me that seemed odd, given his otherwise encyclopedic knowledge of everything else military. Heck, I'm Canadian and seem to have a better grasp on US bases then the protagonist. That might seem minor to some, but for me it was a real sticking point. I also didn't like how the book ended so abruptly.

Frankly, if you sound intrigued by the book, go to Bourne's website ([...]) and download the first couple of chapters for free, then decide on whether or not to buy it. Odds are, if you're a zombie fan, you will.

Format: Paperback
I first came across this story a few years ago, back when it was posted like a blog for free on a website. Eventually I lost the link and he took most of it down for publishing or something. Finally I found it was available for purchase so I scooped it up.

The book is short but it's the way it should be. The diary point of view combined with the believable writing make is a great read. Additionally, his twist on the genre part way through was interesting and scary.

I heartily recommend this and its sequel, "Day By Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile". Well worth the money.

I love Zombie books and a lot of them have let me down, so far this is the most realistic one of the bunch. Once I started reading it I had trouble putting it down! The only other one so far I've enjoyed almost as much is World war Z. The ending did leave me wanting more and if there is a second I'll buy it.

I truly recommend this book if you are a fan of the zombie genre. It is a marvelous day to day (just like the title) portrayal of the feeling of an Armageddon situation.

It is from the perspective of a military man who is more prepared, but it really captures that desperate feeling and it's exciting to boot! I couldn't put it down and bought the second one which is just as good.

By Buggy TOP 100 REVIEWER on Sept. 6 2010

Wow, this was a surprise! Before I begin I should tell you that I've never read a Zombie book in my life and I'm not a fan of the genre(although I did think Shawn Of The Dead was hilarious.) I generally read romance novels with the occasional biography thrown in. So you can imagine my surprise when I became absolutely engrossed in a book about surviving a plague of walking dead.

Day By Day Armageddon was unputdownable and had me alternating between being really freaked out,(checking doors and windows) despairing for the future of mankind (also afraid of the dark) and getting my personal survival kit (weapons, food, Band-Aids, Gin) ready for "that day" -Could I really kill my now undead friends and neighbours? Simply put this is more then just a zombie novel and this romance reader loved every minute of it.

DBDA has been written from the first person and in the form of a journal which for me increased the suspense factor, because our unnamed hero sometimes starts out an entry with things like "0430 hrs- I'm still weak from blood loss" before going back and explaining. As the reader you're like, holy hell what happened last night? The narrator is a US Navel officer who begins his journal as a New Years resolution. It all starts out rather mundanely with day to day life stuff and a few ominous mentions like this one "It seems that something is going on in China; the local news reported some type of influenza virus sweeping them over there."

The flu is of course the Zombie virus and it spreads to apocalyptic proportions within months. I found these parts really interesting; how the author saw the realistic(?) breakdown of society, media blackouts and the extents the US government ultimately took to eradicate the disease.
