Another Great EMP Book!

This, the second book in the series is an amazing continuation of great first book. As with the first I honk he character development goes a long way to making the story believable. The bad decisions and decline of food people scattered throughout be series give these books a realistic feel. Can't wait for Book #3!

is it over yet?

Don't feel bad about skipping over this book. It is painfully slow and every single little detail is described. They are always praying about something. I could even fast forward 30 seconds and they would still be praying about one thing or another. The author pushes his Baptist beliefs throughout the character interactions to a point of taking away from the story. It is so obvious you can see it coming.

The narrating is so inconsistent it is hard to keep listening or keep up. The narrators will start with what they think is a Southern accent and move to a New York accent and then try to have a black accent but the black accent will turn back to a New York accent midway through the book. It's amazing this audio was released with this narration.

I am so glad this book is over and won't be reading any sequels.

A good story that has good education snuck into it

I met Jeff this weekend at a Prep Expo, and saw his books. Yesterday I downloaded this book and listened to it all day. It is different from other books as it is not all rough and nasty but it still has action and situations to learn from. I have really gotten to like the main characters and appreciate their outlook and knowledge. Today I've listened to book 2 "The Search" and have just downloaded book 3 to start on when I finish this.
The readers/actors are both very good to listen to, and put a good bit of aliveness to the story. You'll enjoy listening to them.
The story and the readers make this much better than listening to anything on television, etc. Try one, you'll be hooked.

Great follow up to the first book

I love how this book resets the time back to the day. It gives perspective from Will and Lizzie’s and point of view. I love how they prayed about things. A lot of reviews I read hated that but during bad times people turn to god even when they think they won’t. This book characters are amazing. However by the end you want to punch Jimmy in the face

Great story, horrible narration/bad fake accents

I absolutely love the author and story. The plot follows a direct timeline and is easy to follow. The characters are easy to relate to and even show good character growth. The narration is terrible and almost hard to listen to. I am living in Alabama and even live in one of the places mentioned in the book, and these are the worst "southern" accents I have ever heard. Literally no one I know sounds like that that lives here. Every girl sounds the exact same and is hard to dictate who is talking sometimes. The guys and a little better, but not much. Not everyone has a thick southern drawl here. Just terrible narration overall, but a great story.

NOT a disappointment!

wasnt sure I would like this one bc i wanted it to be about the same characters as the first book ...and honestly, the first book IS my favorite in the series so far, BUT I think it's only bc I felt I could relate to John & Jill better (as only an adult can) - their feelings, maturity level, etc... kept thinking "that could be me one day". BUT I got over my apprehension quickly as early as the first couple of pages. I love how they intertwine together. And now I find myself wondering what MY child would do if this happened while I'm 200 miles away from home. the kiddos are maturing quickly in order to survive ...and the whole story line is actually BELIEVABLE...no knight in shining armor coming in to rescue the damsel in distress, without a scratch on him & plowing down everything & everyone in his path, etc.... Will is just a sweet, southern, respectful young gentleman who makes mistakes & cares too much about how other ppl feel - even when those ppl are trying to steal everything he has & beat him to a bloody pulp. It's hard to find GOOD young men - and women for that matter - nowadays that still behave old fashioned & have respect for their elders & love for everyone.
I do NOT like Mr. Wright though - Amy's dad - he is a sleezeball & I actually found myself getting upset knowing what this is likely turning into....

And - it REALLY all makes me wonder what kind of person I will be if / when SHTF! will I turn into a looting, murderous, thief just trying to do it to feed my family? or will we be -somewhat - prepared & have a plan in place??? I always thought preppers were crazy - but an EMP - especially used as an attack on our country - is VERY believable...and the threat is VERY real ... especially the more technologically advanced our civilization becomes...and the more countries we decide to piss off. they would do it in a heartbeat. will you be prepared???

Captivating Book

This author is incredible! Hope he writes more!
My husband and I listened to these books and really enjoyed them. Now I am waiting for this author to put out another book because I will be first in line! Not only was this story well done but the characters and their personalities were well-crafted. Great job and great narrators. Honestly the best! Highly recommend this trilogy!

Not as exciting as the first book

enjoyed the book, but not as great a story as the first, but this is only my opinion.
