Description

For the first time, the Internet phenomenon is now in print! Beheading a zombie isn't easy in a world where you're more afraid of the living than the dead. Adrian Ring's simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors. Retreating to Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, Adrian attempts to rescue friends and family on the way while dancing around his impending insanity over who and what he left behind, and evading maniac survivors. He saves his cat Otis, but shoots his mom. Pretty successful, all things considered.

Dark Recollections is the first part of Adrian's own story of how he survived after "That Day". Told through his eyes as he talks to his laptop, affectionately named 'Mr. Journal", and through short stories that entwine with his tales that bring forth dark visions of a world being eaten alive by an unimaginable evil. Adrian's Undead Diary is an eight-part epic about a solitary, guilt-stricken man who didn't think he deserved to live, but realized very soon that he survived and suffered for a reason. Dark Recollections is the first book in the AUD series. It covers Adrian's journal entries from September 21st 2010, to December 1st, 2010. Intermingled with his personal diary entries, book one also contains the short stories "Phil's Story", "McGreevy's Report", and "Soccer Mom".

Very Different

What made the experience of listening to Dark Recollections the most enjoyable?

How detailed the author was about the zombie apocalyptic world. From going to the grocery store to saving the college kids. It was different than other books I had listened to. It was mostly a reading of Adrian Ring's diary of life after the zombie's started to pop up all over town. How he helped save different people and save himself. I thought it was great he even was planning on what to do if survivors started showing up. I thought the description of how crazy people had gone when the world went crazy was right about what I would expect to happen. I would listen to this book again. I'm planning on listening to book 2 now. I had looked and noticed that the author has written about 8 in his series so far.

What about James Foster’s performance did you like?

Great voice for the main character. He was a perfect fit. I could really imagine a big tough guy taking care of business and trying to get by in the crazy zombie world.

northern exposure meets zombieland

Any additional comments?


northern exposure meets zombieland? let me start with the northern exposure part. northern exposure was one of my favorite shows b/c it was odd and quirky with a great cast of characters, one of which was john corbett. he played a philosophical ex-convict who was a disc jockey and between songs, he'd comment on all kinds of things. his comments were funny and at times very insightful. anyway, adrian reminds me of john corbett's character on northern exposure. the narrator's voice also reminds me of john corbett's voice- easy and smooth to listen to.

i don't know if you've ever seen zombieland, but it is a pretty good zombie comedy. jessie eisenberg plays a geeky guy named columbus. he's survived by making rules, such as cardio (you have to be faster than the slowest person), double tap (always make sure you shot a zombie in the head), beware of bathrooms, etc... adrian also reminded me of columbus because like columbus, he started to come up with rules as he survived certain situations.

as the story opens, adrian begins journaling because he's lonely. he starts his journal, who he calls mr. journal, in september. as he opens up, we learn that the zombie outbreak started like 3 months earlier in june. adrian is a resdence advisor at a small but elite private school. basically, he works the night shift in a dorm watching over the students.

the story swings between time frames. adrian will describe what he has been presently doing and how he got to where he is. the present entries describe his activities scavenging and securing the campus. his other entries recount the initial outbreak and the choices he made.

there are a couple of extended vignettes that are told from the perspective of people that encountered adrian during the initial outbreak. one is phil, a gun store clerk, and the other is soccer mom, a mom who encountered adrian at a grocery story. both are really good stories.

the story is kind of slow, but that's ok. this is not an action-packed run and gun shot 'em type story. the zombies are shamblers with kind of a twist- they don't moan, which if you think about it has some scary implications, but you can listen about them when you download the book!

overall, this is a funny yet at times emotionally gripping story. i'd classify the humor as dry humor, and at times, guy humor.

Surprisingly excellent

I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical prior to listening. I am surprised to say that this is in my top 5 in the zombie apocalypse genre.

Loved this book!

I wasn't sure I was going to like the diary format of this book, but it totally suited the story and the narration was fantastic. This was exactly what I was looking for. I always find it interesting in books when they talk about how they figure out how to survive. Not just fighting zombies, but actual day to day living, without our Creature Comforts. Love hearing how they fortify buildings and basically scavenge for food and supplies, that kind of thing. A lot of that in this book, a lot of humor, and really just great storytelling.

Captivating

I am not a big zombie fan but this book goes beyond the zombies and into the lives of the people that were affected. Could not stop listening can't wait to start on the next book.

Fun and sadness in the zombie apocalypse

Adrian’s world has come apart at the seams. The monster movies he has watched have finally come true. You’ll never see a zombie flick with a sole actor because it would be hard to understand all the drama that happens with someone on their own. This book is the ramblings of such a story and it’s funny and sad and entertaining. I’d recommend for anyone that enjoys zombie apocalypse without too much horror. The thing missing from too many zombie stories is someone that has watched the movies and actually stopped to consider what might happen. Well done.

A totally new take on the Zompoc

I Absolutely loved the audiobook version, i followed Adrian since it was a blog written in real time and i have to say, James Foster does an excellent job of giving Adrian a real, down to earth voice, that everyday guy who ends up having an important responsibility. Chris Philbrook develops the story in a way that keeps you on the edge and waiting to see what happens next. There's horror, laughs, tears, love and lies and a whole other range of emotions that any great story will make you feel. Highly recommended but i warn you. clear your calendar because you will not want to put it down until the end.

Awesome zombie series!!

I'll admit I never leave reviews, but figured after several times listening to the series I should contribute! Adrian's Undead Diary is an amazing zombie series (honestly, my favorite..& I've listened to a lot), and if you're into the genre at all I would highly recommend giving it a try. I love how the reader/listener really gets to know Adrian & bond with him through his daily journal entries - to me it is a unique way of storytelling compared to other zombie series I've listened to. It truly didn't take long at all for me to really feel invested in Adrian & his story.. He's definitely a likable character but has some guilt, & it makes some parts emotional as he talks about this.There is also some humor thrown in (sorta dry humor, but I like it!), so the series does make me both laugh & cry. The narrator James Foster does an awesome job throughout all eight books that are out so far!

Zombie Fallout meets The Syand

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, yes, yes. Zombie fans, paranormal fans, horror fans, there is so much to this series for everyone. As I write this review I have just completed all available to the 8th book. I was so involved in story I didn't want to stop listening. Absolutely no question how to spend my credits until I had them all. (This is written for all of them)

Who was your favorite character and why?

The hero, Adrian, realizes that the world is turning upside down and that zombies are becoming a real threat. Adrian, in his efforts to prepare and find shelter neglects to attempt to retrieve his girlfriend, Cassie. That decision was not a conscious one but through a series of events he did not go to her. This weighs heavy on his heart and the guilt of that situation makes him protective and driven to find and help others.

He begins writing his thoughts, plans and interaction with others in a diary he calls, " Mr. Journal".

Which scene was your favorite?

Any with Otis the cat.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is witty, raw and manly.

Any additional comments?

As my headline states this is Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout with wit, action, heart and bravery meets Stepehn King's The Stand with many different characters you'll care about each one and the battle for humanity' s survival between good and evil and the spirit of each human to prove his worth.
