Publisher's Summary

In a world without power, Jason must fight for survival as he heads to the wilds of the Appalachian Mountains. In this story, ably narrated by Gabriel Zacchai, an electromagnetic pulse attack on the United States shuts down all power, communications and transportation. With no food deliveries, and no vehicles working, society begins to unravel. Starvation and death begin to reign and panic leads to violence. Marauding gangs roam the countryside, stealing, killing or worse and cities begin to wall themselves off from the danger outside. As society breaks down, Jason heads to the Appalachian Mountains to avoid the growing anarchy, hoping to wait out the chaos. The gangs threaten but loneliness becomes his biggest enemy as the solitude envelopes him. In a secluded mountain valley he finds a woman, Anne, and her two daughters struggling to survive. They are near starvation when Jason shows up. Violence soon follows him. Survival will mean fighting...and killing. The power hasn't returned, the country is still shattered and Jason and Anne must struggle for a new life in a dangerous world. If you like One Second After and other survival/post-apocalyptic stories, you will enjoy this personal story of trying to survive and thrive after an EMP attack. Gabriel's compelling narration brings this exciting tale to life.

    "Good introduction book"

    Would you recommend After the Fall to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book to a friend as a light read, travel and beach entertainment.


    Did Gabriel Zacchai do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, Gabriel Zacchai narration was good and well paced.


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

    Possibly, but I would like to have a deeper development of the characters. This book occurs in a post electronics environment. The rest of the world seems to have left America untouched and not invaded during this time. This did not seem possible.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to reading the next installment in this story from this new author. As a first book, I believe it was a very good effort. Deeper and more rounded characters would benefit future efforts, and as a whole, this author holds his story and his audience together very well.

    "To the Author"

    You have a pretty good talent for writing a story and keeping it interesting. However, here's a little constructive criticism I would like to toss in the mix for the future. The first point is learn the details! The people that listen to books of this genre are not lonely housewives or elderly women hoping to read about desire. When you refer to AR-15 rifles as .223 throughout the entire book, it drives me crazy because they are mainly 5.56. Although a 5.56 will shoot .223 ammo, the chamber pressures are much higher. Plus, you cannot use any found 5.56 ammo in a rifle chambered for truely .223. Please learn the difference!!! You built Jason as a former sniper that only selected a Ruger .223 caliber when he got out. Are you kidding me? These guys train with everything from the .260 caliber up to .50 cals and are intimately connected with their weapons. They may own AR-15s but an AR-10 is a more believable story. Jason took his bow and taught Katherine how to use it. Dude! There's no girl in her teens that is going to stealthily and accurately pull back a mans normal draw weight of 55 to 70lbs. Especially in a physically demanding role and a slightly malnourished state! Please learn the difference between a clip and a magazine. Lastly, the narrator was ok. Kevin Pierce as a narrator is on a whole other level. If you going to write a story set in the Appalachian mountains, a person with a clear yet refined southern accent for the narrator will do wonders for your story. That's enough!

    "Great main character in believable settings"

    The audio isn't perfect but it kept me engaged. I'm a fan of educational fiction where the skills are described for the education of the listener and this story had some nice lessons.
