Dark Recollections: Adrian's Undead Diary is one of the best zombie genre I have ever encountered. Since I love the apocalypse genre, that is saying a lot. Adrian is just normal guy living in a small town (New England I think). He has a girlfriend, a job and a past. All three have a direct impact on the story.
The dairy is Adrian’s way of coping with witnessing the ugliness of the end of the world. The majority of the story is entries from Adrian's diary. There are a few points where the story switches and shows the events Andrian’s has described from another person’s perspective.
Adrian is one of the most human character I have ever encountered in literature. He is a flawed man with a good heart. He is trying to survive the world gone mad while retaining his soul. Adrian also has a great sense of humor.
James Foster does an excellent job narrating the audiobook. His ability to verbalize the author’s words is so complete that I literally see Adrian’s shoulders slumping as he sighs or a wry grin as he gets sarcastic about the events of his day. His voice is always clear and his volume remains consistent. The production values are great.
I listened to Dark Recollections: Adrian's Undead Diary in less than 24 hrs because it was so compelling and enjoyable. The icing on the cake is the fact that Dark Recollections is only the first of eight books in the series. I have already picked up books two through four. Dark Recollections: Adrian's Undead Diary is the zombie apocalypse that you want to survive.
