    The change in narrative for this book was a little jarring The author has definitely tightened up the style, and introduces numerous additional perspectives for arounded story While some may enjoy this different approach, I preferred the narrower view of the main character in the previous two books Certain areas of the story felt too drawn out, whereas the conclusion felt very rushed Some readers may find the outcomes reached a bit novel, others may be annoyed There is clearly an open The change in narrative for this book was a little jarring The author has definitely tightened up the style, and introduces numerous additional perspectives for arounded story While some may enjoy this different approach, I pref...

    After being a huge fan of the first two books, I was really disappointed with this one It got a little better in the second half, and had some horrific moments, but overall it changed from being a small band of survivors type story to a military strategy course with spy thriller type action.I stopped reading this one for a while because it felt like a bunch of action, then a bunch of planning of military ops, and all along I got very little engagement on a character level There is a lot of nar After being a huge fan of the first two books, I was really disappointed with this one It got a little better in the second half, and had some horrific moments, but overall it changed from being a smal...

    I was a huge fan of the first two books The unique narrative, where the protagonist tells the story via his diary, made the story incredibly gripping and compelling The story was all about the individual struggles of the protagonist as he adjusts to a post apocalyptic world Finding food, water, ammunition things that we all take for granted It really made you think about what s important in life It also made you connect with the protagonist in a way that few other books have been able to I was a huge fan of the first two books The unique narrative, where the protagonist tells the story via his diary, made the story incredibly gripping and compelling The story was all about the individual struggles of the protagonist as he adjusts to a post apocalyptic world Finding food, water, ammunition things that we all take for granted It really made you think about what s important in life It also made you connect with the protagonist in a way that few other books have been able to do.The third book takes all of that and chucks it out the window Gone is the unique narr...

    Thursday Morning Okay, so I just got started last night on this book I swore after how bad the first book was and how horribly awful the second book was that I would not read the third I lied I picked it up at the library and saw a format change thank God I never actually paid for any of his books, and by the way, I DO buy most of my books so the authors see the money, which we should all do I also saw what looked like an apology for the first two books in the author s forward This one w Thursday Morning Okay, so I just got started last night on this book I swore after how bad the first book was and how horribly awful the second book was that I would not read the third I lied I picked it up at the library and saw a format change thank God I never actually paid for any of his books, and by the way, I DO buy most of my books so the authors see the money, which we should all do I also ...

    This book takes the form of a straight novel instead of a diary from the outset which gave me hope that we would seeof my favourite characters John and Annabelle However the author then decides to addnew characters and use multiple POVs which I did not think was required We follow Kil and Saien on their mission to China, survivors at a remote station in the frozen north, soldiers trying to reach Hotel 23, Admiral of the Fleet, Remote 6, a seal team on Hawaii etc We do get the odd This book takes the form of a straight novel instead of a diary from the outset which gave me hope that we would seeof my favourite characters John and Annabelle However the author then decides to addnew characters and use multiple POVs which I did not think was required We follow Kil and Saien on their mission to China, survivors at a remote station in the frozen north, soldiers trying to reach Hotel 23, Admiral of the Fleet, Remote 6, a seal team on Hawaii etc We do get the odd thought of John and Tara but not anywhere near enough.What did I like Well the mission of the seal team on Hawaii was the best thing in the book There was a real purpose to it, it was exciting and nerve shredding, just like Kil and John s initial adventures in the first book Really enjoyed that The few bits we got of J...

    First off, I am REALLY surprised at how many negative reviews this got on Good reads Most of the ones I read seemed to be very peeved by the change in narrative style and were convinced, based on assumptions only apparently, that the change in style was done because of pressure from his publisher This was entirely not the case and I am basing this on things he has said on his facebook page and his website He seems to be a man who takes and keeps strong control of his work and protects it like First off, I am REALLY surprised at how many negative reviews this got on...

    Having read the first two books I could tell this author would be a new favorite I read both the previous books in single settings and right away paid the full MSRP price for Shattered Hourglass which is something I rarely do because I am a cheapo and know somewhere out there the book is onor ebay for 1 with 3.99 shipping.But I hate this book. its terrible What made the first two novels great were the following through a diary of a single persons struggle Every page you would turn w Having read the first two books I could tell this author would be a new favorite I read both the previous books in single s...

    To all the literary genius critics out thereget a grip These are largely self funded and published books in a specialist category Zombie literature is either something you enjoy and read as if you have just found a journal written as society is consumed by the undead..or a poorly written disjointed torture session If you fall into the latter category, I m sure Penguin Books has something new you will enjoy.I eagerly awaited this thir...

    All that I can say is what happened I am not totally against Bourne s departure from the journal format, but I am against the way it was executed Instead of getting a detailed look into the mind of Kil once again, we get a brief look at a bunch of new characters I have no problem with adding new characters if had Bourne bothered to develop any of them or even make us care about them a little bit.The ending is a cop out in my opinion We start of with this guy trying to survive on his own wi All that I can say is what happened I am not totally against Bourne s departure from the journal format, but I am against the way it was executed Instead of getting a detailed look into the mind of Kil once again, we get a brief look at a bunch of new characters I have no problem with adding new characters if had Bourne bothered to develop any of them or even make us care about them a little...
