    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Sara says: "A terrifying story"
    "done better in "The Stand" and "On the Beach""

    What would have made One Second After better?

    This book has a thinly veiled conservative agenda, is overly melodramatic and the characters are wooden. I'm not sure why this got good reviews. The EMP angle is new, but otherwise, if you want to read about the degradation of society, read Steven King's "The Stand" or Nevil Shute's "On the Beach". I am sorry I wasted 11 hours of my life listening to this overly patriotic Fox News broadcast in narrative form.
