Lackluster Third Book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Day by Day Armageddon: Shattered Hourglass (Paperback)
I really wanted to like this one, which is a fleshed out treatment of the twist introduced at the end of the second novel. I enjoyed the earlier two books, but this one read more at times like a cliched Tom Clancy novel incidentally featuring zombies than a zombie apocalypse/survival narrative in the traditional sense. Bourne's shift to a primary third person narrative rather than using the compelling journal style that was the hallmark of his earlier books also didn't appeal to me either. Overall, a good effort, but not as good as the earlier books in the series.

So you gave it 4 Stars? Your review reads like you thought the book was a 2 or 3 Star overall.

Probably still gave it 4 stars for the same reason I did. Didn't meet the high expectations, but still a good book overall. If you've read the first two books in the series I still recommend reading this one, but maybe borrowing it from a library before deciding if you want to buy it yourself or not.
