While I've read many books in this genre, I have to say this one is one of the best. Realistic and gripping. Kyle's journey is both believable and realistic with enough intrigue and drama to keep the reader intensely interested and engaged.
The Author inserts a dynamic generally left out in other novels of this type, which is the very human element of emotional turmoil felt by all parties during the collapse. Very well written.
77 Days in September: U.S.A's possible turn-out
Yes it did,
This book is one that I will read again.
the only thing positive about this book was the narration. Narrator did excellent job between voices. now for the book. i read a few previous reviews and should have listeed to them. for a TEOTWAWKI it was unrealistic especially if you have ever read or listened to anyother book. the main characters should have been dead from mistakes in first couple of chapters. i will not buy second book
This was well done, but I wanted to hear other people's stories too. What happened in other cities.
I appreciated that the couple stayed faithful to each other.
Terrorists detonate a nuclear bomb in the atmosphere above the United States bringing down the grid, the majority of electronics and automobiles via EMP. While the story starts out as your typical grid down EMP tale, it is anything but. The main characters are not preppers, or retired Special Forces, or active military, or law enforcement. These are just regular people dealing with extraordinary circumstances. On second thought, after venturing further into the story I find our protagonist, Kyle Tait is quite the wimp, having little to no backbone. Quite disappointing! Kyle survives an airline crash near Houston, Texas and for the remainder of the volume must journey home to Deer Creek, Montana 2,000 miles distant. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Kyle’s wife and children are facing their own bundle of chaos. The wife, Jennifer must face this disaster on her own, not quite knowing exactly what to do, while continuing to care for their three children. I believe Jennifer had a much harder go of it than our boy Kyle.
I enjoy reading this type of book and if you are looking for a book where a guy with zero knowledge, skills or survival mindset makes it home in spite of himself then this is the book for you. Otherwise pick the 299 days series if you want realistic, One Second After or anything by JW Rawles is good.
I doubt he could be more inept,and more girly in his thinking. I am so displease with the trend in books to make The men inept with all the thought feelings and actions of girls, and the women being the macho protector of the fail and week indecisive man! It is not as strong in this story, but it definitely has that (FEEL) to it.
It was realistic, kept my attention and not preachy like other survival books.
When he finally got home.
I like this narrator, his female version of his voice leaves some to be desired but otherwise very good.
