"Live from the Apocalypse" is the transcript of the "Jefferson Jones Show" as it aired on November 7th, 2012; the day the sun disappeared from the sky and the mutilations started. Jefferson has been planning for just this event, he's got his crisis garden in the basement, he reinforced rebar siding surrounding his studio, and his G36K fully loaded and ready for action. With his intern, Scott Blithe, and his best buddy and trends forecaster, Gabriel Celona by his side, he is prepared to wait until the globalists think all the patriots have been beaten before reclaiming America. Things are not going quite as he had imagined them though.
This is the first book in a while that I have not wanted to put down; seeing Jefferson's image of himself running into not only the opinions of other people, but reality itself, is very entertaining. Some might criticize Andrew Cruze for Jefferson's long, repetitive rants, but those people have clearly never listened to talk radio. There is a payoff to Jones' insanity, not only in the way reality and weariness wears him down, but in the eventual window it gives into why Jefferson Jones is who he is.
The only real complaint I have about this story is its lack of scope. I wanted to know more about what was happening to the world; to know what Jones was right about and what Jones was wrong about. The only thing that keeps me from giving this five stars is the simple lack of some sort of epilogue, something by the person who transcribed the show, saying how it all eventually turned out. While this is not the book for a truly broad scope of the end (?) of the world, it still would have been nice for them to be some closure.
Final verdict: Do you like apocalyptic fiction? Are you a fan of talk radio shows? Do you really, really hate talk radio shows? It's a dollar; buy it!
READ THIS BOOK.
I think the author hit what he was aiming for with the style and story. Unfortunately, to me it was just irritating.
If Mr. Cruze was to do a rewrite I would give it anothere read. I think this is his first try at this type of writing and I
hope Mr. Cruze keeps trying .
