Publisher's Summary

Four years after an inexplicable wave of energy decimated the American mainland, and then just as inexplicably disappeared a year later, US President James Kipper is no closer to explaining the catastrophe to the traumatised survivors.

In a decaying New York City, an assassination attempt on the President prompts the suspicion that the looters overrunning Manhattan may be more organised and sinister than previously thought.

Then out of the smoking ruin of the Middle East comes an enemy that will be Kipper's toughest challenge yet. The battle for the Wild East is just beginning, but does this New America, and its gun-shy President, have the strength of will to destroy the past in order to save the future?

Awsome listen and read :)

Would you listen to After America again? Why?

All aspects of the story was a total draw in. The main people you could love and care about and the the baddies were very nasty and you love it when they get justice served on them.<br/>All of John's books are as enjoyable as this one i.e. Axis of Time Trilogy, After America and the list goes on Very Happy with this book :D

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pretty much all the good guys especially. The Villains you can really dislike.

What about Kevin Foley’s performance did you like?

Excellent reading and he really gets into the story with all its shades.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The whole book moved me in so many emotions.

Any additional comments?

A Great listen and read :)

GREAT STORY

Would you listen to After America again? Why?

Yes I would...in a year or so....its an easy and entertaining listen

What other book might you compare After America to, and why?

Collapse, very simllar stories...the end of a powerfull America, a looming threat of Johnny Foreigner on there doorstep!

What about Kevin Foley’s performance did you like?

Coolio...even the womens voices werent to bad, Usually male readers just sound really camp when they do this. Which amuses me.

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

Nooo....its not that kind of book

Any additional comments?

Bourne Identity meets The day after tomorrow is the best description for this jolly little jaunt.

Interesting

Not a bad story but need to pay attention to keep up with the political theory line
I feel that a lot of his other books are much better
A good book otherwise although seems the end could do with a more polished finish and a follow up would be good
