I read the first two and continued being captivated by this book.
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 truly enjoyed this edition of LWTD. While it was much darker than the first year, it also seemed more realistic to me. Bad things happen in a good world, so many more awful things are bound to happen in the apocalypse. The only reason for 4 stars is because I am still wishing there were moments of actual speaking, instead of just blogs. Still a great read though. On to the next installment!

Book three and I need to rest, I am not reading book four until I read some other Zombie story.
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.

I disliked the method of writing this book so much that I haven't been interested enough to finish it. I rarely do such a thing, especially when it's an author I really like. I just do not like a story written as a journal - it makes the story too disjointed and boring.

If you liked Max Brooke's book "World War Z, You'll probably like this series. A lot of books about the zombie apocalypse are nothing more than a list of bloody, gruesome ways to die. This series is about a group of people surviving.

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'm a huge fan of Living with the Dead by Joshua Guess - see my reviews for Book 1 and 2.

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.

Took a chance and tried these out. Love the LWTD series. I've read 4 now and have been very pleased. The story is captivating and seems to real. A good book makes you feel like you are there, and every one of these books have made me feel like I was living this nightmare right alongside everyone at the compound.

This book is written as a blog, and therefore we see everything through the authors eyes. In that way, the story is about one person, but the author does try to go into detail about things others are doing. I love zombie books so I read this expecting to like it, and I really did. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. This is more a story about survival than zombies, but there are plenty of zombies for the zombie lover.
