Z Day is Here by Rob Fox
Z Day is Here,
Journal of the Zombie Apocalypse
by Rob Fox
Publisher: Library of the Living Dead
ISBN 13: 9781448603077
Wow. That's my initial reaction after finishing Z Day. I am not sure but I think this book started off as a blog book and was then picked up for a POD CAST and then publication. And it is well worth the read. Once you get past the formatting and typos (on purpose in some cases - it is meant to resemble a blog, not a book), you'll find yourself rooting for the MC and several of the stragglers he comes in contact with.
Our MC was in the city when the shit hit the fan. He has one goal, to reach his home and his fiancé. This book is a rush of action and interesting characters told after the fact. It is a blog, you have to keep reminding yourself of that, because the story will pull you in.
The book is a quick read (and I'm a slow reader), I finished it in three sittings. It is an account of the first 101 days of the Zombie Apocalypse and it starts with an interesting reason to how the world died. And it all started with a little boy. Read the first page, it is all explained in an excellent way -- as background to the story taking place. I loved that.
Zombies are the new vampires and this is the perfect book to set you on your travelling way through the land of the dead.
Once you finish this book, you're gonna want more and there is more. One of the characters continues the journal 280 days later. And you can find that blog HERE.
