Book Description

It’s a journal of survival.

Five people set out to escape the growing tide of the Undead after they arose too close to home. Immerse yourself in the emotional and physical struggle as you join our survivors on the third day after the re-awakening of Brooks VanReit, as they are recorded from the point of view of Julie, a former pathologist and part-time survivalist. Each entry is geared toward helping those who want to help themselves and maybe give a few that don’t a swift kick in the ass.

Join our group of survivors on their journey through these Days with the Undead.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

It was watching Romero's Night of the Living Dead at the tender age of 6 that solidified Julianne’s respect of the Undead. Since that day, she has been preparing herself for the (inevitable) Zombie Apocalypse. While classically trained in all of the ways to defend herself, she took up writing in order to process the desire she now covets; to bestow a second and final death upon the Undead, As the only girl growing up in a family with four children in the Canadian countryside, Julianne needed some form of escape. Her choice was the imaginations of others which only fostered the vibrancy of her own. The horror and forensic/crime thriller genres top her list of favourites, but she can never turn down a good science fiction, fantasy or mystery read. Julianne appears in the anthology Women of the Living Dead with a story entitled The Living Dead at Penderghast Manor. Look for her short stories in future anthologies. Days with the Undead: Book One is her first full-length book, the basis of which can be found in her popular web serial of the same name.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a story... an experience September 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Then Day three, the day it all begins with one very insightful lesson:

"Our escape was narrow but our lesson important -- never stop to stare"

I want to go on and on about how wonderful this collection of days is. It was a brilliant idea and with Julianne's forensic background she was able to bring to the plate not only a scientific take but her own passion for the genre. We as readers are immersed in a daily fight for survival. From the early days. Unlike with The Walking Dead where Rick wakes up much later, this is them riding the wave of infection out of Toronto. I cannot remember how many times I cringed and held my breath and a few times a tear rolling down my face. Just such a well wrought story. Flushed out from the original web series, it brings to light the power of individuals in the need and desire to survive.

There are parts of these days that definitely make this a mature read. The video games have rated most zombie games as Mature (17 and above) I would have to label this read with the same. Not because there is tons gore and violence, there is but it is not in a gratuitous amount. Specifically there are scenes with particularly small individuals that I would not want my 16 year year old, let alone the younger ones, reading just yet.

The subject of zombies and a zombie apocalypse is popular to the point of being a viral constant (heh viral) on the net and in other media formats, such as books and movies. So how does one make it original enough to go grab this one up? Why should you buy it? Well because of the unique approach the author has taken.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great New View in the Zombie Genre. February 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I won a copy of this book during the 2012 Coffin Hop and since I need to become familiar with the author's voice, I finally got around to reading it. "Days with the Undead" grew on me. When I first started reading it, I was unsure how much I would like reading an entire book in journal form without any conversation between characters. The way Julianne Snow writes the characters and scenes in the journal form is splendedly fun and makes for a quick read. Her method of expressing each character's feelings without having them speak or moving into their heads was well done. Everything is told from one person's POV and it worked really well in this book.

After the patient-zero shows up in Canada it doesn't take long for the infection to spread, turning people into an undead horde hungry for flesh. The point making this a very interesting read is as the group escapes Canada to the United States, they encounter people who have no idea what is going on up North. Once the infection spreads to the states, their trip to find safety is wrought with danger and strife.

Overall it is a very enjoyable read and the ending left me speechless and wanting more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different take on the popular zombie genre February 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A handful of survivalists. They'd always joked about the idea of using their skills to flee hordes of the undead. When it actually happens, they find it's no longer a laughing matter. Welcome to the journal of Julie, pathologist and part-time survivalist, as she chronicles the events of nearly a month as she and her eclectic band of friends journey from Canada, through the United States, and back again, always trying to stay one step away from throngs of the Undead. If you're out there and you happen upon her blog, you may want to pay attention. It may just save your life.

Zombie novels are the latest craze in genre fiction these days. There are literally hordes (pardon the pun) of them coming out nearly every day. I imagine it's easy for some of them to get swallowed (pardon the pun AGAIN!) by the sheer numbers being released. Days With The Undead should stand out as something a little bit different.

It's told in the first person. That's nothing new, but what gives Days a different flavor (need I say it?) is that it's told entirely as a sequential series of blog entries. The book opens up on Day 3, after the Undead begin to take over the city of Toronto. Julie and her friends/fellow survivalists are already fleeing the city. They are, for the most part, on their own. The government isn't doing anything, the news isn't reporting anything about it. She takes it upon herself to start the blog as a means to educate the masses: Yes, this is happening. No, we're not crazy. Please, run. The journal takes the reader on a broad journey as the group travel across boarders and states, always staying one step ahead of the undead masses.

One thing in particular that makes this a bit different is that there is no dialogue. Zero.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written zombie story with unique elements January 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was gifted to me by the author for an honest review. Thank You.

I feel like I know zombies pretty well. I own a copy of the Zombie Survival Guide. I have watched every episode of the Walking Dead. I've watched a Romero movie or four. I know that you aim for the head. And I know you need to get out of the cities but don't take the roads. So do I feel confident that I would survive a zombie apocalypse? Naw. I wouldn't last a week.

Days with the Undead: Book One is a journal of survival. It begins on day 3 and ends on day 31. There is an ER doctor, a forensic pathologist, a sniper, an intelligence officer, and an environmental scientist. They are all zombie fans and zombie survivalists. Weapons experience, an expert in edible plants, a map collector and "a mechanical and technological junkie". "...just a group of people trying to stay alive."

Like I said before, I like a good zombie story. I like the saga of the fight for survival. Days with the Undead had a really good description of the zombie outbreak as told by the ER doctor. I liked how each character had a story to tell about their life, their sacrifices, their mistakes and their pain. They were each sympathetic and I liked them all. Crazy stuff was happening with the outbreak and each day the narrator asks for her readers to pray and fight for the living. The group doesn't really have a plan. They just want to go somewhere safe. They move from Canada to the United States and back to Canada while the narrator searches the internet for a safe place and posts her journal entries. This is a well written zombie tale with unique elements.
