    Despite all the warning bells, Black Friday arrives as a devastating tidal wave that completely destroys our fragile economy in a single day. There is panic in the streets as banks close their doors, seemingly forever, at noon. Store shelves are swept bare and the gas pumps soon run dry. Jimmy Logan watches in disbelief as his world crumbles before his eyes. Luckily, he has friends who have planned ahead for this nightmarish scenario and he joins up with a group who plan to ride the storm out in northern Minnesota. Some of their group will be dead before the sun sets.

    Would you listen to Desperate Times again? Why?

    I purchased the 3 books from Amazon, read them and was truly fascinated and engrossed in the story of all 3 books.


    What other book might you compare Desperate Times to and why?

    I can't make a comparison to any other books/audible. When reading, one becomes engrossed in the characters. When listening, with voice changes, the story is so incredible that I wish this was a movie. Audible reader is fantastic and knows the characters. Coupled with the story, I will re-read and re-listen as much as possible. The combination is great with edge of the seat excitement, education, thought provoking and fairly true to human nature and what one could expect in the event of a catastrophe based on eletro-magnetic-pulse, grid shut-down, food shortages, disappearing and self-serving government as well as ways in which to survive and deal with the unexpected, which is included in the book and the masterful way it is read by Mr. Cirillo!!


    What about Joe Cirillo’s performance did you like?

    Absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire story, but having read the story, the manner in which Mr. Cirillo is able to bring the characters to life! I just can't understand why this book isn't a movie!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone passing up reading this book, or more importantly, missing the audible story has truly missed out on life. I KNOW that any reader of the books will "chomp at the bit" to get the fantastic audible version!!
