    Hugh Farnham is a practical, self-made man, and when he sees the clouds of nuclear war gathering, he builds a bomb shelter under his house, hoping for peace and preparing for war. But when the apocalypse comes, something happens that he did not expect. A thermonuclear blast tears apart the fabric of time and hurls his shelter into a world with no sign of other human beings.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Born again Christians


    If you’ve listened to books by Joel C. Rosenberg before, how does this one compare?

    na


    How could the performance have been better?

    stop telling me who's speaking and just perform. Movement from one scene to another was not consistent.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    interesting geo-political situations...but not really plausible.
