Very well done book on the bits and pieces of what is going on during a zombie "turning." (Pun not intended) Transcrips of radio, etc are very realistic. I am NOT a zombie buff, and I really enjoyed this short book. I actually wanted to find out what happened to some of the surviving people, or to read more of the stories as it was happening.

This is a fun book, but it's been done before, most notably (and much better) by Max Brooks in WORLD WAR Z. The premise is that an undead zombie hoard has risen, and the "book" is the documentation found by those who went through it.

Most of those who left messages - videos, office memos, notes on napkins, etc. - are now dead. Some of the "entries" are funny in a horrible zombie-uprising way, like the office worker hiding in a supply closet who makes himself President since everyone else is now dead and banging on the door to get at him. One, dealing with a group of teenagers who decide that the need for more beer outweighs the chance of being killed by zombies, is just plain stupid.

Since THE DEAD WALK DIARIES: NIGHT, was published by a vanity or "self" publisher, there are a number of grammatical and typing errors in this very short story, but I will admit that they were, for the most part, not bad enough that it took away from the overall enjoyment of the story.

My biggest complaint is that the book just ends. No warning, no lead-up, but just...BAM! Here's the last "entry," bye-bye. For me, that was a total turn-off, in that there is no closure or completion of ANY of the "entries" left by those who lived and died during the attack.

A quick read, mostly entertaining, but it could have been a whole lot better. If you're looking for a wonderful zombie book in the same vein, I highly recommend the aforementioned WORLD WAR Z by Max Brooks.

I enjoyed this book . Being a die hard zombie fan, I wanted more though. What happened to so and so after their last diary entry ? If you like the aspect of trying to survive zombie plagues, this is good. Fast read.
