5.0 out of 5 stars Very personal and intimate take on disaster/survival genre, 20 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 77 Days in September (Kindle Edition)
Just a fantastic and brilliantly-written novel. The key thing when weighing up the purchase of this book is whether you like your disaster novels epic or intimate. This is of the latter type and is all the better for it. It follows Kyle and Jennifer, a married couple split by 1500 miles on the day an electro-magnetic pulse knocks out 99% of America's electrical systems and items. Kyle treks across the Mid-Western States, from Texas to Montana, desperately trying to get home to his wife, who has her own problems as the community in which they live falls apart at the seams. It is a very realistic portrayal, from both sides, of what ordinary people will do to survive in extraordinary, and terrifying circumstances. It is a good read for all - there are some moments of mild horror and violence (I won't say too much) but nothing approaching, say, Stephen King, so is also a good read for all those who like a good thriller or family drama. For a Kindle-only title, there are _very_ few typos, which was a relief. I love disaster novels, I am also a Christian, and I very much enjoyed the moral-dilemma side of the entire novel. Well done, Mr Gorham. And keep writing - looking forward to your next work!
