Surviving The Evacuation, Book 1: London (English Edition) Reviews
to a tale about zombies roaming, what is left of our world. Story told from the view of a survivor - or even someone who knows more about the curse? Gets under the skin.
Super Buch mit dem nötigen British Humor. Empfehlenswert. Bin auf das nächste Buch gespannt. Viel Spass beim lesen und entdecken
One of my favorite reading experiences was discovering Day by Day Armageddon by J.L. Bourne. This was about seven years ago, and I probably haven't found as many books that I've enjoyed as much in that time frame. There was a magical kind of balance in the journal format combined with the onset of the apocalypse. Not to make this a review of DbDA, but ever since discovering that read, sitting on my couch with no other entertainment in mind that could compete, I've been searching for a replication of that. London (Surviving the Evacuation #1) is the closest thing I've found to DbDA, with Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End as a close second.London has a couple unique twists to the zombie genre, while also fitting inside a sweet spot for what zombie fans love. Our main character was left behind due to a broken leg while the rest of England evacuated. I liked this because of how it set the pace, and because as you'll notice in Walking Dead, at some point, fighting zombies isn't that hard. London uses the slow kind that can pick up a little, so our main character has a bit of a chance, but if you can imagine fighting a rapid animal, "slow" or not, while also balancing on a crutch, you get that added suspense of risking death. With so many zombie stories out there, it's the subtle distinctions that can grow into unique scenarios while also giving us the sweet spot zombie survival stories that we come for.Another unique aspect that I liked was our main character. He's one of the governmental leaders in terms of strategy for combating this sudden outbreak, so he's smart, and gives us that trope of zombie stories where we hear about all of the fascinating ways in which humanity responds to the outbreak. I liked his humor, how he tries to battle the clock as he figures out how many days he will need to stay in a cast with how long his food and water will last while stranded in an apartment in the city.London is an ideal zombie story for fans of the genre in general, but also for those who like journal format. There's humor and intelligence with the main character, and as the story expands, the characters only add to the intrigue pushing the plot forward. I love finding a book that exceeds expectations and ends with the desire to pick up the next volume right away.*I'm catching up on reviews here, so I can say that the next book is even better.
This story is centered around Bill, who though trapped in London, tries to escape the flood of undead unleashed by an infection. With a broken leg suffered right before the infection started, and London evacuated, he is stuck in his apartment. His friend, Jen, who is a part of the political scene, was supposed to send help. A car did show up outside, but the driver was killed, leaving Bill on his own.Using London as the story setting was different and enjoyable, especially for me, since I lived in England 3 years. I really got the spiel about Bill and his desire for hot tea. It is a normal routine for Brits and one I picked up too.It was interesting to watch Bill’s progress as he survives with a handicap. At first, he is terrified to even attempt going downstairs to see if the doors are locked. Gradually, he becomes stronger mentally and physically; searching the apartments downstairs for supplies and doing exercises to ready himself for the day he tries to escape London.Bill doesn’t take long to adapt and become proficient at securing safe houses along his route, killing the infected, and learning to survive using various skills learned the hard way on his journey. He soon realizes his thought about floating down the Thames in a boat wont’ work; there are millions of undead behind barricades erected along the river.Bill realizes his best bet may be a really secure new home, perhaps a castle with garden areas and a regular water source. He decides a monastery would fit the ticket; would be built of stone, maybe with a fence around the perimeter, and hopefully a well. After an exhausting, danger filled search, our hero finds just such a place. I was happy that Bill found a safe haven to survive and am hoping he will find others to bring into his special place.Story written in a journal style reminiscent of Day by Day Armageddon Beyond Exile by J.L. Bourne. There are no conversation exchanges with other characters and very little contact with others, but still a gripping tale. Bill puts his thoughts down, hoping to figure out what went wrong and how he ended up stuck in a zombie infested London. Recommended for fans of zombie stories.
I bought this book quite some time ago and finally got around to reading it, and I am very glad I read this book!***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***The premise of this book is that the Zombie Apocalypse has happened and our main character, Bill, is stuck at home with a broken leg. His sister who is a high ranking government official promised to send help for him. However when the help arrived, the help was quickly overwhelmed and killed. So Bill is forced to survive with his broken leg and that makes for a lot of good conflict in this story!He can't really run from the zombies since he is hobbling for most of the book. Bill forages for food in abandoned homes and businesses and looks for a place where he can be safe and have enough food to survive. It's a good tale of survival and at the very end we find out that the virus that caused the Zombie Apocalypse was not as much of an accident that we all thought it was.***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS***So overall it's a good Zombie Apocalypse story and I enjoyed it very much, and any fan of zombie literature will enjoy it as well. Check it out!
