Enjoyed this TEOTWAWKI young adult novel I found the ending to be very rushed and about a quarter of the way in, I realized that every time the character was happy about something person, impending project it never ended well This easily recognizable pattern took some of the wind out of the sails for this book, for me Rating two stars, which sums it up perfectly, it was ok.
Just making this clear from the start, the only reason this doesn t have five stars is because of a personal preference which I will get to in a bit.This story was incredibly well done The amount of research and care for detail that you can tell the author had is astounding The way the world inside the book was being told to you, you could really picture it in your mind and be there I really liked Jack, he was clever and resourceful but in a believable way Now, the reason for the four not five s [...]
I loved this book, it ticked all of the boxes for me The emotional roller coaster was in full swing with the vivid world of destruction painted around me coming to life I really felt the emotions portrayed in the book, and went on a journey of survival with the characters I love a good apocalypse dystopian survival story and this one has it all Definitely worth a read I was barely able to put it down once starting.
Not many apocalyptic tales take place in Australia Unique take on the apocalypse Loved the characters and the diary format.
Amazing book Could not put it down Definitely a top 10 of all time for me
This book was not really my style It is written in first person and has entries that are short rather than chapters the narrative is well written and the language is comprehensive and current it you enjoy first person books with the short entry style as well as current lingo such as lol or hashtags then this is the book for you.
Apocalypse Diary of a Survivor may be my new favorite book, which means I will now have to read everything author Matt Pike has written or will write.Set in the present day, starting in April 2014, the book follows the life of Australian teenager Jack, just before and after a giant dark comet unexpectedly hits Earth and causes an apocalypse It s written as a diary, which Pike explained in a QA at the end of the book was inspired by his great grandfather s WWI diary The idea was to make the story [...]
I received a copy of this book from the author in July 2014 in exchange for an honest review I ve mentioned here that I ve been trying to clear out my backlog and this was one of the books that I kept from that list because I liked the writer s voice from the bit I had read when deciding what to review later.There was so much that liked about this book that I m going to start with the bad part The only complaint I have about this book Specifically, the copy I have because I don t know if changes [...]
First and foremost I must say that I am a HUGE fan of the apocalypse survival genre, ever since my father handed me Lucifer s Hammer by Larry Niven when I was around fourteen to read Ever since then, I ve been hooked on such books and movies So, when I saw Matt J Pikes Apocalypse Diary of a Survivor I was pretty sure I was going to enjoy it.I did I really did enjoy it.I was reminded of another favourite survival book of mine from my teenage years, Hatchet, which I utterly adored and while Hatche [...]
Apocalypse Diary of A Survivor focuses on the life of an Australian teenager, Jack Baldwin, after a dark comet crashes into the Indian Ocean The impact causes major tsunamis that destroy coastal cities, while bits of the comet and its tail wipe out other cities Multitudes of people are killed in the initial event The impact causes giant dust and ash clouds that blanket the remaining landscape and send the world into a nuclear winter Services break down almost immediately and the people who remai [...]
I was given a copy of this ebook by the author in return for my review.This is one of those books that isn t particularly original in terms of the idea for the plot Let s face it in the apocalypse genre there s not much new and the meteorite idea has definitely been covered But something about this book is fresh and new I think it s the main character and the style of telling, but I am really glad I picked this book up.It s written in the form of diary entries, something I don t think is easy to [...]

Jack, the protagonist in Apocalypse Diary of a Survivor, is an appealing character whose hippy ish parents have brought him up to be independent and resilient They have gone away on holiday to some remote location and Jack s brother is away as well in London Jack gets an early warning of the impending disaster and starts to make preparations writing regular comments in his diary as events develop.The story is completely plausible and the explanation of the cause of the apocalypse works really we [...]
If I hadn t already read a number of diary type entry style apocalyptic books, this might have struck me as original Though I ve read a few already, but I did love the plot.Although I felt the character descriptions were a bit thin, thereby making it hard to envision them, I still felt compelled enough to continue because they were likable, for the most part This is a well written story by a survivor of an event which destroys cities around the world, leaving people without an infrastructure and [...]
I expected this book to be another post apocalypse story that gives a two or three sentence description of the event then moves on from there, but that is not what I got Matt Pike describes in details every aspect of the event allowing the reader to see and feel the impact and lose as if he or she were actually there Mr Pike weaves everyday life into his story in such a way as to cause this reader to think, Oh that would so happen When I went for a snack, I had to remind myself that I was not sh [...]
Jack faces a new world as a comet strikes Earth, wiping out millions of people A born survivor, Jack sets about ensuring his survival Written as a diary, this story let you see things through Jack s eyes and how society and community fall apart when you are starving Well written and worth reading.
I had to skim through most of it It was not good.
