I keep saying that this should be on amc - more realistic than walking dead esp what they did with it this season.
I consider work like this on a blog the modern day equivalent to diary entry writing which was huge in England during the Victorian era - just look at Dracula. This is on that scale for today :-) Valerie Hist. Prof.
I feel just worn out, book three was everything that could happen, happened. No food, Zombie hoards, cowards and the most wonderful help you could wish for.
Bloody good read, how Joshua keeps finding new things for his blog is beyond me, to be able to write such a convincing story and make me hate some people and feel the warmth of others is incredible.
Well written, good story line and not fun. But then you wouldn't expect the Zombie apocalypse to be fun!
Well done again Joshua.
Josh and his wife have turned their neighborhood into a small fortified city. The zombies have begun to evolve, becoming more intelligent and harder to kill.
It was written as a blog, a man sitting down at the end of the day to write about what he has done, is planning to do and his worries. The main character, Josh is based on the author and so are several other characters. Many other people in the book are based on real people. This series has kept me awake. I kept needing to read just one more blog entry.
I originally got the first 4 books when they were on sale free. I've enjoyed them so much, that I deleted the books from my library so I could buy them again and put money in the authors pocket. He needs to write more.
I am not much for the blog b/c it drives me crazy to read just one entry a day. So I was excited to see that both Book 3 and Book 4 are now available. Just finished Book 3 The Hungry Land and I think Guess is getting better. The characters are fully fleshed (ooooh, bad pun, considering) and I love that Guess the author does not spare Guess the character when he acts like an, hmm, I bet Amazon won't let me say what I was going to say, so let's use "fool".
What I like about this series, and what I respect Guess for, is the realism. (Yeah, I know zombies, but bear with me.) The characters are not "good guys" and "bad guys". They are individuals who can be both. Just when you think you have a character figured out he/she acts or reacts in a surprising way, like Will. And while there is plenty of zombie fighting, Guess focuses on the human needs and interactions and the inevitable conflicts that arise when people are crammed together, living in constant fear and getting hungrier and hungrier.
And just when you might have forgotten, Guess writes a scene at the end of the book of a lone zombie and a fading advertisement that will stop you in your tracks. What makes us human?
Yes, there is too much of Guess' philosophizing, but this is a guy living with the dead, he's entitled to ask what is the meaning of life every now and then. And there is plenty of action against the dead and the living. On to Book 4.

I will finish this series, but I can't say it's all that great. Much of it is just plain boring, however I started it.. Read morePublished 14 days ago by malinda thomas
I enjoy this series. Guess is a great writer and the blog format is a fresh way to present the zombie apocalypse.Published 8 months ago by WFP
This one was less entertaining, more in depth to the hard way of life inside New haven. The exiled really ticked me off because of their lack of humanity at times.Published 18 months ago by Kindle Customer

A very good book that is entertaining as well as a concise chronology as to what can happen in a "zombie" world.Published on February 6, 2014 by bruce
A bit too philosophical. I ended by giving up halfway through, tired of the ponderings, though definitely good stuff happens in between them, when it does.Published on December 16, 2013 by Amazon Customer
