    Story
    "Events lead up to EMP."

    This book is different from most apocalypse tales in that there is a lot of lead-in before the event takes place. I like that because I have a sense of who the characters were both before and after the EMP. I also like it because the main characters are ordinary people, like me. They are not doomsday preppers or survivalists, nor do they have military background. They are scientists, an ex-psychiatrist, an ambitious religious con man, a priest, etc. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5* rating was that there was a little too much lead-in. The supernova did not come until over half-way through the book. The thing I liked best was the "interludes" where he describes in terms that a novice can understand, the build-up to the supernova. There is mention of deadly rays reaching Earth 100 years or so after the main event. I hope this means there will be a sequel, if there isn't one already. I am going to go look.

    "Not Bad but Certainly not Great"

    Similar to Lucifer's Hammer in mood but nowhere near as good. Some characters drawn out leaving others undeveloped. No sense of horror or destruction. Dull in places.
