Publisher's Summary

On a Friday afternoon before Labor Day, Americans are getting ready for the holiday weekend, completely unaware of a long-planned terrorist plot about to be launched against the country. Kyle Tait is settling in for his flight home to Montana when a single nuclear bomb is detonated 300 miles above the heart of America. The blast, an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), destroys every electrical device in the country, and results in the crippling of the power grid, the shutting down of modern communications, and bringing to a halt most forms of transportation.

Kyle narrowly escapes when his airplane crashes on take-off, only to find himself stranded 2,000 miles from home in a country that has been forced, from a technological standpoint, back to the 19th century. Confused, hurt, scared, and alone, Kyle must make his way across a hostile continent to a family he's not even sure has survived the effects of the attack. As Kyle forges his way home, his frightened family faces their own struggles for survival in a community trying to halt its slow spiral into chaos and anarchy.

77 Days in September follows Kyle and his wife, Jennifer, as they are stretched past their breaking point, but find in their devotion to each other the strength to persevere.

What is an EMP?

An EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) is a magnetic pulse that overwhelms, and thus destroys, all electronic devices exposed to it. It is the most serious threat faced by a technologically advanced society. An EMP can be human caused, through the detonation of a nuclear bomb high above the atmosphere, or natural, through a severe geo-magnetic storm. In multiple reports prepared for Congress, scientists predict the complete destruction of modern American society and question our ability to ever recover if we are the target of an EMP attack. Further, some predict the death toll in America in the aftermath of such an event to be in excess of 200 million.

About the author: Ray Gorham lives in the small farming community of Shepherd, Montana with his wife and five children. He runs his log-home business by day and writes in the evenings, on weekends, and whenever the weather keeps him inside.

    Story
    "Preachy - but an interesting hike"
    Would you try another book from Ray Gorham and/or Joseph Morton?

    No.


    Has 77 Days in September turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The overall scenario was intriguing - an EMP blast took out U.S. power, communication, and transportation, and a man has to hike from Texas to Montana to get to his wife and kids. But the occasional preaching and political bias made me want to scream at times.

    Story
    "Worth the buy IMHO."

    Have read a lot of reviews and saw some negative reviews. I am glad I got it despite those reviews. I think that peepers expect an instruction book but it's nice to read a book that has unprepared characters. I recommend it. The reader reads a bit fast but that is about the worst thing I can say.

    "Awesome"

    Narrator was excellent. Story was superb. Im an audiobook junkie so believe me when I say this is a good story. Did I have any issues with the story? Maybe Kyle was too nice for my liking but at least he wasnt an ex army ranger with all these elite skills like most other books out there. Its a nice book.

    "Great Story. Struggled with the narrator."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Based on the story I would recommend this to anyone that love a good societal collapse story. However the reader really killed it for me. Very little inflection and monotonous. Just stringing words together. No pauses where needed at times. He went from a straight deadpan dry read to a moment of excellence and them back to dry.

    Story
    "Prepper Lite, but still enjoyable"
    What did you love best about 77 Days in September?

    Other reviewers have said that this was sort of a lightweight "prepper" story and I agree, but it was still enjoyable. I cared about these characters, even though both main characters made some stupid mistakes. The narration was top notch. I'd like to see a gritter sequel.

    Story
    "Super good story line."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, will, and have recommended it. Looking forward to the next book on Audible. I recommend it because "people" need to understand this scenario has real potential to come true and I feel this story, and others like it, raise the awareness of the masses so that we can all be a bit better prepared for it in the event it does happen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the Character Kyle and his commitment to his family.


    Have you listened to any of Joseph Morton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed Joseph's performance in this book as much as I did "The End" and the "The Long Road".Very easy to listen to and he engages the characters with zest. When looking for new books I actually look for ones he has narrated.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I got a bit choked up towards the end, but I laughed outloud several times with some of the funny comments throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Super excited about listening to the next book "Daunting Days of Winter" through Audible. I don't have as much time available to read as I have to listen so having books released through Audible is a big help for me.

    I love books, but reading makes me sleepy. Hence, my Audible account! :)

    "Great Story... A Bit Abbreviated."
    What did you love best about 77 Days in September?

    The determination and drive of Kyle.


    Have you listened to any of Joseph Morton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have listen to Joseph Morton before. I love Joseph Morton's narration. He has the perfect voice, pace, and inflections for audio books.

    Story
    "A Hallmark Story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is more of ladies love story than an adventure book


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was ok for a very non realistic love story that just happened to be set in a dark and sad time.


    Which character – as performed by Joseph Morton – was your favorite?

    The hero and his wife (also a hero) seemed to be great people, just living in some kind of fairy tail instead of a dire situation.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This might be great for the ladies in the world who would value a girls love story, but very disappointing to those looking for some realism in what the country might be like after a major disaster. People crying "please don't hurt me, I just want us all to be friends", I don't think so.....
