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.

    "Great adventure"

    Very enjoyable story of a journey home. It is not a knock off of the book Going Home but, to me, a more realistic representation of how life would be trying to get home after an EMP. The main character is likeable and as you will see an honorable man. I highly recommend this book and am about to start the sequel even though it is late at night and I should wait until tomorrow.

    Story
    "PG EMP"

    Was this book good? I guess... I mean...it wasn't that bad. It was very typical End of the World stuff. If you want End of the World, and prefer PG13 this is for you.There is nothing new in this story if you have read other EMP books. The only advantage is that there is not a lot of "Adult" themes in this book (you know if that kind of thing bothers you). EMP happens, everyone scrambles, Some people fare better than others, some fail miserably. Humanity shows what it really is. Nothing new in the writing.
    If you want to fall asleep because the narrator is whispering without emotion then this is also for you. Joseph Morton seems SOOOO bored reading this. He isn't enjoying the read, so I wasn't enjoying the listen. Maybe with a better narrator I would have given it more stars, but that is the best I could rate. The next book in the series has a new narrator, but I still wouldn't use a credit on it. There are so many other better EMP books to listen to.

    Story
    "REALLY????"

    The story was overall good, very captivating at the start. The main character was a coward. In a true EMP attack this guy would have never made it out of Houston. The writer never goes into detail on how this guy obtains his food and water. This story was ok but had potential to be great. The narrator was good.

    "Narration awful"

    The narration was so bad that it regularly distracted my thoughts from the story. Even when emotions should have been evident, the boring monotone of the narrator wore on, which took me by surprise and then called for mental criticism, over and over. I never have had such to say about the narrator and my reviews aren't usually this critical, but I thought of this so many times while listening that I had to say it in my review.

    Story
    "This is a great stand-alone SHTF novel"

    This is a very enjoyable and entertaining SHTF novel for those who are not looking for a story about the former special operator who's trying to stop terrorists or the 16 year old kid who somehow plays the roll of a hulking natural born leader with 20 years experience. This book is just about a normal guy trying to make it home to his family. I definitely recommend this one.

    The narrator is definitely not my favorite, but he's passable... especially for a stand-alone novel.

    "Good book, not a waste of time"

    The story is good somethings could be written a little better. I personally think the characters are overwhelmingly stupid I could be wrong maybe more people then I know are that dumb. How many times can a guy face death before he learns to not trust people or at least be apprehensive of them. The wife being a mother really has no "mama bear" instincts she does ok in her predicaments but I'd think she could and should do a much better job. They do represent the crowd in libssoula well though aside from they're willingness to share with people.

    "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.
