However, after reading the Preface and first chapter I quickly realized just how profound this novel is! I think scary or frightening are the first thoughts that came to mind. True, it is a novel, but in reality it is a possible/probable narration of events that an average person might encounter after a massive EMP attack. Jim, the main character is a "prepper" , is a business man - a salesman, on a business trip. The story's theme is for Jim to get from Charleston back to his home and family in eastern Tennessee. Of course he encounters numerous challenging and grueling situations in that trek. Each chapter is more like a teaching tool rather than a section of the story, yet it never detracts from the enjoyment of the story as a novel. The final chapter, "Afterwards" is no longer fiction, but an excellent closure to the eye opening aspect of this book.
I truly loved this book, although for me it was too real in possibility to also be terrifying. The author clearly explains that everything he discloses is already publicly available and we can be sure those who differ in our ideologies are well versed in the details.
Even if post apocalyptic literature is not your interest, this book is truly a must read. I feel it should be required reading!
This book brought up some interesting issues, such as zoos, prisons, power or water facilities, radiation, and ISIS, and how they might affect the populace in many areas.
I look forward to other books by Cal Wilson to see if he maintains consistent on believability in fiction.
I highly recommend this as a fun way to learn too, all about this potentially devastating weapon in its various forms.
That said, after reading that the protagonist in this book was a military veteran with combat experience and no suspension of belief could make me understand why Jim Burkett was portrayed as someone very weak in character, not all that experienced with weapons and not to mention the fact, he is supposedly a prepper but has a very naive view of the world and his surroundings.
The character of Claire was over the top and not in a good way. She goes from being a Prima Donna to full fledged knife wielding people killer in no time flat and with nary of a conscience about it.
Along the way, Jim and Claire and run into every worn out TEOTWAWKI theme there is. Everything from cannibals to prison escapees, terrorists nuclear bombs, Chinese invasion and more. And how convenient at the end of the story, Jim arrives home at his ranch, only to have one more battle royale with ISIS terrorists.
There are many more better (and more believable) written EMP themed books out there. However if your are looking for a modern day Walter Mitty style tale written at a high school level, then this book is for you.
I would have given this book only one star if had not been for the well written introduction and afterword that the author included in the book.
