    Story
    (42)

    It’s 2026, and catastrophe has struck from an unexpected source. The Alpha Centauri supernova has risen like a second sun, rushing Earth toward its last summer. Floods, fires, starvation, and disease paralyze the planet. In a blue aurora flash of gamma rays, all microchips worldwide are destroyed, leaving an already devastated Earth without communications, transportation, weaponry, or medicine. The disaster sets three groups of survivors on separate quests. A militant cult seizes the opportunity to free their leader, known as the Eye of God, from the long-term coma to which a court sentenced her.

    G. House Sr. says: "Give it a read, it's worth the credit"
    "Terrible narration"

    Would you try another book from Charles Sheffield and/or Gary Dikeos?

    Yes to Charles Sheffield no to Gary Dikeos


    What other book might you compare Aftermath to and why?

    Maybe to One Second After. That is mostly because both are post EMP novels


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gary Dikeos?

    Wil Wheaton


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Whilst I am enjoying the story I find it very difficult to listen to when the narrator does accents. His female voices are awful, his Australian accent is woeful and most of his male characters sound like senile old men.
