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.

The apocalypse is about to arrive - on a galactic scale. A wave of cosmic particles approaches the earth like a tsunami racing toward a marble. Following this disaster, as the wave rushes away at the speed of light leaving Earth in its wake struggling with the aftermath, events will red-shift toward madness....

This is a unique take on the end of the world as we know it, and I found the idea chilling. We are infinitesimally small and so very fragile compared to the energies that storm through the universe. What do we really know about the forces that were set in motion in the blast of creation? How the hell would we protect ourselves against something on that scale? Were this to happen in reality, I imagine something like the event described would simply end life on the planet. But that makes for a very short post-apocalyptic story. This book is in many aspects an EMP disaster novel but human beings are also drastically affected, leaving them neurologically impaired.

In this story a few survive intact, and they emerge from hiding into a world that has been knocked helter-skelter. What becomes of humanity is disturbing at a deep level the way the author has written it. The particle wave has reduced us to ravening, predatory animals. There were some very creepy moments....

I really enjoyed this read. The author's commentary on NGO's in Africa and the expatriates who become become "lords of misery" is wickedly incisive. He conveys a sense of place that sets up an emotional resonance, and it fills the story with memorable harmonics when in Africa. Descriptions of places in the US were not as evocative. The characters were interesting, but here again was an odd dichotomy.

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.

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.

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.
