Monte Vista Village

The Survivor Diaries- Book I

THE APOCALYPSE— WOULD YOU SURVIVE? I’m Laura, and I survived global nuclear war. When I walked out into the devastated landscape, I didn’t find zombies, witches or vampires— what I found was infinitely worse; it was real.
IS THIS OUR RECKONING? Our tormentor is no longer the enemy; it is what’s left of the desperate earth. My neighbors are starving and sick from the biochemicals in the air. Our food, water and meds are running low. Our only hope is to come together to stay alive.
WHO WILL LEAD US TO SALVATION? Certainly not me. Why would it be me? The Army Colonel should be the leader of the Village, not me.

5.0 out of 5 starsA tremendous writer!

Lynn Lamb, one of those rare and tremendous writers who can take a cast of characters and an intricate plot line and weave a story into a comprehensive novel involving serious subject matter that could affect us all–apocalyptic, end-time events. With a succinct manner, Lynn keeps all the moving parts in continuous motion never dropping the ball or missing a single beat. From beginning to end Monte Vista Village’s characters, plot, setting, and theme develop in steady fashion drawing the reader into the world of Monte Vista Village where you’ll take part in all the challenges and triumphs. I pray, if this ever happens, I’m living in or around a “Monte Vista Village.” As a matter of fact, there is such a wealth of information in this book, it may be a guide for some. 🙂

Laura has endured a worldwide nuclear-powered warfare. Predators, such as zombies, and monsters are the least of her worries. Famine has stricken the land as well as biological warfare poisons. Water, foodstuff, and medications are almost nil. Who will save this desolate world? While combating her own particular complications, Laura gives it her best effort to sooth the people’s fears. Throughout the story Laura records what happening in her journal. I found that this aspect in the story brought more intrigue and conveyed a more personal feel to the protagonist’s part. Survival stories are so enthralling to me. This is a great one. If you like this kind of story then I highly recommend Lynn Lamb’s Monte Vista Village.

OK, I love zombie books and this is one of the best I have read. Love the vivid descriptions, the fast pace, the unexpected turn of events and the characters.
Now, my gripe.
Why; these days, do authors split up a good novel into Book 1, Book 2, etc.?
I get to the end of this Book 1 and it leaves me hanging. I check into Book 2… $6.99? Are you kidding me? $6.99 is what I expect to pay for a complete ebook novel. This is entirely too much for another few chapters that will leave me hanging for Book 3.

I loved this book! I’ve never read or followed the apocalyptic theme, but I live in the area that is the setting for the book, and I just couldn’t put it down. I had to find out what was going to happen next. The amount of research Ms. Lamb must have done is sort of staggering–to be able to imagine everything that could go wrong, or right, after a catastrophic attack–those days afterward, when everyone is stunned and there’s no reality anymore–and all normal activities will never be normal again, changed forever in 24 hours. I love this book!
4.0 out of 5 starsI’m Hooked

This book was recommended for me by Amazon, and for once they got it right. Character driven books are always what hook me. In this case, I was more than impressed by the depth of the characters and how, as a first time reader of this author, I felt as though I got to know her characters and the world she created. While I enjoy strong female characters, this aspect became secondary to the story. It did not matter whether the main character was male or female. What mattered was the humanity and the struggle.

I did not give this book five stars as it could benefit from a bit of polishing, but I look forward to the growth I’m certain will be found in the second of this series. This author has such potential and this reader is looking for more great stories from her.

I really enjoyed reading as the characters grew and developed. I’ve become quite a fan of Laura and really can’t wait to see how Book II unfolds! The interplay with Jackson adds just enough spice to make it interesting and I can’t wait to see how that relationship develops!
5.0 out of 5 starsThe End is a Reality

By Jen on December 7, 2015

This book is worth every penny spent! It is well researched and a very real possibility of what could happen. the introduction of every character was well planned and executed. I found myself holding my breath from the start eager to see what happens next, I could not put this book down. When the end comes Laura jumps into action quickly, relying on her gut instinct to keep herself and her family alive. The only thing in this book I would have changed would be to add a chapter or two about the days leading up to the end explaining what made Laura think what she did. There are a few passages about it, but more would have been lovely. Overall I give this book 5 stars!
