There are obvious parallels between these books and The Walking Dead. The difference between them is that this series of books goes more in depth, and you really get to know the characters. I really love how each of the books connect with each other, and they are building a history of different communities coming together after an apocalyptic event. These books are how The Walking Dead could have been. By using different groups of characters, and different locations, there are infinite possibilities.
I love the interactions of the characters, and seeing how people come to rely on each other. It’s the details like food and water, and basic survival, that makes this series of books more interesting than the programmes on tv. You really get a sense of the magnitude of losing all basic amenities.
I’m really enjoying these books. They’re perfect bedtime reading and I look forward to many more.
I bought book 1 on 13 August 2018 and continued to buy the series up to book 14 on 19 October 2018. Please hurry up Frank, and release book 15!!
(My reviews for books 1 to 7 and books 12 to 14 will show as an Amazon Verified Purchase. Books 8 to 11 were bought for me by a friend as a present, so obviously aren’t verified on my account)
Ok, right up front this isn’t a single book review I’m reviewing the whole saga that is ‘Surviving the Evacuation’. I’m retired with plenty of time on my hands and like to read books that form a series rather than just individual stories. I admit that having finished reading the 20 books, so far, in the series I went back to book 1 and started reading the series for a second time enjoying it just as much as I did the first time.
First off, this is one of the best series of books I have read and I read a lot in the post-apocalyptic genre. Normally I would avoid books about zombies but this series isn’t really about zombies although they are the focus of the problems the characters have in their survival. It’s about surviving in a post-apocalyptic world and all the problems that that entails.
What is refreshing in this series is that women play a major role in the leadership, decision making and the fighting.
I’m desperately trying not to put any spoiler’s in this review so it won’t be an in-depth review of the individual stories.
Basically the story starts in England and then travels across continents. What I like is that the author will track what happens to individuals as they venture into the wastelands but he also keeps track of what is happening back at where the main body of the survivors are currently based.
There’s plenty of action fighting the zombies, corrupt government officials, a criminal cartel and survival itself.
One thing, you have to leave reality behind you are stepping off the reality bus when you read a book about zombies. Yes, you can look at what the characters in the book do and say to yourself they wouldn’t do that or they should’ve done this or this just wouldn’t happen.
This isn’t a ‘Surviving the Apocalypse book for Dummies’ so don’t expect the characters to act or do things that people would do in the real world.
This series of books are simply a good read and I’m looking forward to reading the continuation of the stories that the author has started in the books. There is still a long way for the survivors to go and I hope the author is up to the journey.
Although I don't like Nilda I am impressed by her determination to survive . I do wonder if Chester has really changed or has some ulterior motives in the end. Others have said much of the storyline so won't add further. I am halfway through Book 5 now and continues in the same 5 star interesting scenario of hopelessness for the survivors.
Nilda is a resourceful and suspicious woman and does not jump on the evacuation bandwagon. Instead she decides she and Jay will attempt to go it alone.
However they do join forces with other survivors attempting to forge a community of sorts. Ultimately they decide the coast would be a better location and head in that direction.
En route disaster strikes and Nilda has no option but to go it alone.
In the latter part of the book we are with the Anglesey community as we head into part 5.
The only real issue I have is that the day after the outbreak I am not sure it would have been a consideration for me to cotemplate eating dog food pal.
