I'm a big fan of this book. It was gritty and felt very real. Very believable. I would consider this the most believable book on the topic I've read. I highly recommend this book. I couldn't put it down.
This book is very readable. It's divided into relatively short chapters and alternates between the perspectives of the two authors (who have inserted their real selves into the story, as far as I can tell). The story is told documentary style and is all the more engrossing for it's realism. Streiber and Kunetka explore in fascinating detail the unforeseen consequences of a host of calamities: the collapse of the world's largest economy (literally in an instant), no more electricity or computers, millions "dosed" with lethal amounts of radiation, new and deadly viral plague, the new geopolitical order in the absence of U.S. and Soviet dominance and the breakup of America into several smaller countries. The only non-realistic thing about the book is the absence of any nuclear winter climate changes. But, nevertheless, as the two interview survivors across the country, hearing their recollections of where they were on Warday, it will eerily evoke your own experiences answering the same question about 9/11 or (for older readers) the Kenneday assassination. This book is highly recommend for anyone interested in nuclear war or post-apocalyptic fiction or who just loves a good thrill.Oh, and it served as the inspiration for the cult hit TV show "Jericho," if you ever watched that.
