Book Description

A post-apocalyptic journey across three continents, The Fallen explores how far we would go to protect the ones we love.

When a wave of energy from deep space passes over the Earth, human memory is erased and technology destroyed. With humanity reduced to a state of nature, Tim finds himself in Africa, separated from his wife by unimaginable distance. Meanwhile, two young scientists in America try to escape the chaos, seeking answers and safety.

Will they find what they are looking for, or will they succumb to The Fallen?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, not a great ending. November 20, 2012
By RyZen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like this story, and although I'm not a fan of the zombie genre this was a new and refreshing take. Something turns the inhabitants on earth into primeval versions of their former selves. Those left who weren't affected, are left to struggle for their lives. This is the heart of this story, two groups left to struggle, one in San Francisco, another in East Africa. The one problem I have with this story is the Epligoue, I just feel it isn't need and doesn't really explain enough to be included. It seems like an arbitrary place to end the story, it should have been a jumping off point not an ending. The characters in this story were written well and are the main reason I gave this story such a high rating. A good read and worth the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars End of the World Anyone? October 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Fallen by Jack Ziebell delivers one of the most unique post-apocalyptic books to date. An energy wave from space washes over Earth and all of a sudden mankind finds itself losing its memory and all technology being devastated. It’s a rush against time as scientist scramble to find a way to escape the phenomenon while a man tries to reunite with his wife whom he is separated from. The book was unique and well thought at and the only complaint is that it was too short.

2.0 out of 5 stars mediocre January 23, 2013

A freebie.

I am a fan of both post apocalyptic and zombie stories and they often fit well together. This one had some promise to it in both genres.

It started out OK, but the pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo trying to explain how what happened never cut the mustard for me. Rather than scientific gibberish trying to explain it, it might have been better to just describe the effects and leave it at that.

Its also another book with a badly overstated EMP effect. While I might buy into the magnitude of the effects overall, you just are not going to get burned up wire from it in the way that it was described. More science gibberish. Never bought into the idea that older motorcycles and cars are immune to EMP effects while basic wiring is destroyed by it. There is bunch of electrical wiring in cars and motorcycles, even though they may not have the electronics in them that modern cars have.

The military side of things had a lot of seriously bad issues with it starting with the rank system used by the author. The US military just does not have a "brigadier" rank and the description of the military side of this thing had a lot of other mistakes in it.

I did not buy into the idea that somehow clueless unarmed civilians can survive the zombie like hordes but well armed and trained soldiers are slaughtered by them.

The idea that somehow one of the main characters was able to find his wife many hundreds of miles away in Africa during such a crisis was laughable.

The ending was really strange. Somehow a reconciliation tribunal solved all the problems. Just not believable.

I just cannot recommend a book that has so many bad pieces to it. I did finish it though so it gets two stars in the ILBOB rating system.

2.0 out of 5 stars Potential to be a pretty good book. December 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was very different from other books in this genre. The one criticism I have is that so much was left out. This could easily have been a trilogy. It's like there are voided places through out the story. Makes for a read that leaves one looking for the parts that you skimmed over after coming to something important and you realize you needed to back track in order to fully understand the story as a whole. The only problem is that there is nothing to go back to.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fallen January 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tim and Sarah work in the third world countries , each go their separate ways to work. Marius and Brian both scientists one notices something in space coming toward earth. Marius and Brian make a mad dash to save themselves. Tim is with a co worker in a mine when this hits earth. Sarah not so lucky. Humans are not the same but as time goes on the humans heal. This is an excellent book, kind of scary if that could really happen though. it was a face paced book.
