Day by Day Armageddon

[rating=5]

Day by Day Armageddon written by J.L. Bourne and narrated by Jay Snyder.

Told from the perspective of a journal that belongs to a Naval officer that is living in San Antonio Texas and is his account of the initial outbreak and violence that spreads.  Listening to the accounts makes you feel as if you are there feeling what he feels as he describes the decisions he has to make in order to insure his survival and the survival of his group.

Once you start listening to this audio book you won’t be able to stop.  I’m serious, I started last night and finished this afternoon.  Mick and a mutual friend turned me on to this series and I can’t be more pleased.

Excerpt from the book on J.L. Bourne’s website  I’m sorry to report that despite our best efforts, the anomaly has broken the boundary of government containment measures.  It is no longer safe to inhabit larger cities.  Safe zones are being established on the outskirts of high population centers and will be open to those not infected.

I got my copy from Audible.com or Amazon, same thing, and listened to it on my android.

Ender’s Game

[rating=5]

A brilliant scifi novel written by Orson Scott Card about children that are raised to be soldiers from birth in preparation for an anticipated invasion from an insect like alien race.  In this story we follow a young boy named Ender Wiggin as he is raised and trained to be not only a soldier but a leader.

I love everything about this book, from emotion, the action, futuristic tech and everything in between.  For what started as a short story released in 1977 and a book released in 1985, Card has an amazing almost foretelling view of the future to include detailed uses of the internet and iPad like devices.

A buddy of mine has been bugging me to read this book for years and I finally made a point to do so over the summer.  An additional kick in my butt to go ahead and read this is that I heard about the movie being made.  With that said I really wanted to read the book before watching the movie for which I plan to review with Mick.

You can find the book Ender’s Game on Amazon.
