The early part of the book is easily the most compelling. Having read "One Second After" by William R. Forstchen I was casting around for a similarly themed post-EMP book. There seems to be a quite a few of them at the moment.

Unlike "One Second After", which is set in a small town in North Carolina, this book begins in a large population centre, just as the main character is about to fly home. The EMP hits just as the plane is about to take off and the consequences of a total loss of electronics aboard the plane are definitely a page turner.

Unfortunately, once events move beyond the airport, things start to get a little more tedious. The book divides itself between the hero, Kyle Tait, trying to hike home and events back home with his wife and family.

As other reviewers have pointed out, the author often gets Kyle in a seemingly hopeless situation, only to be rescued by a convenient deus ex machina. Not once or twice but several times, to the extent that it starts to become grating.

The story back home is even more tedious. Kyle's wife is being eyed up by someone who wants to step into his place (Kyle is likely either dead or unlikely to return home). He's pleasant and friendly at first but it's all to obvious that he's a wrong 'un. Considering how obvious this is, the repetitive bits of story that play out until the inevitable confrontation just feel like padding.

The basic story idea is good, but the execution is weak.

I'm amazed this book got so many positive reviews! It's a great idea (survival post EMP attack) but is very poorly executed. First of all it's very badly written. I don't expect great literature from a kindle cheapie but the dialogue is clumsy, forced and clunky. The author really can't write dialogue scenes that seem in any way real or natural. And the characters... Characters are either brave, resourceful, good (and usually religious) or they are evil, serial killing rapists. It's all black and white, there's no shades of grey, the characterisation is more complex in a Disney cartoon!

Then there's the plot. It's a great twist on a post apocalypse. Not zombies or a plague but a USA hit by an EMP which leaves the infrastructure intact and doesn't kill anyone (initially) but takes society back to before the electronic era. But it's a concept that's poorly explored and almost ignored after the initial event. The main character just keeps bumbling through the world and the fact that millions of people would be close to starvation is totally ignored. The bigger issues are not even considered and instead the plot circles round the male protagonist walking home. Which brings me onto plot holes. He has to cross several states to reach his wife and children. Cars and motorbikes are useless. So instead of finding a bike and loading up the saddle bag he uses a....handcart! He could have halved his journey if he only had the brains to think of a cycle. And his wife is a victim of a sexual assault, is scared of the man in question but doesn't tell anyone because she thinks it's nothing! Of course while the country was falling apart post terrorist attack she was dressed up in her teddy waiting for hubby to get home. Female sexuality and emancipation has rather passed the author by!

I really want to say I enjoyed this novel, and to start with I did. However as the main characters pass a third to halfway it turns into a social commentary on modern mores. In short it becomes less of an adventure novel set in a PA United States and more a treatise on muscular christianity.

The kindle...ah the good old kindle all those authors self publishing and hoping to be the next Stephen King...if only...in your dreams Mr Gorham and all those 5 star reviews where have they all come from? If the author had been at school and written this tedious ponderous story his teacher would probably have said....could do better..so what do we have here? There has been an electro magnetic incident and all communication/electrical systems no longer operate and this includes everything from the humble toaster to the micro chip. Nothing functions and our hero Kyle is on a flight home to Montana when the EMT incident occurs resulting in the plane crashing on take off. Our hero, for that he must surely be, decides to walk home to Montana pushing his little cart a mere 1500+ miles to see the beautiful and dutiful Jennifer and his 3 doting kids. In the process he will encounter some not so savoury people and will be tempted by the luscious Rose..eager to bed the first man who appears on the horizon but our hero Kyle although tempted remains faithful to be beautiful Jennifer and continues on his way (writing a touching diary to his loved one in the process...just in case he does not make it) Meanwhile in the good old homestead of Montana Jennifer keeps the fires burning and fights of the advances of a rather sex starved sheriff called Doug...will she succeed? will our hero make it home? and will the world return to normality?...who knows and frankly who cares! What an utterly boring piece of writing, by someone who I presume had read The Road and thought he could write a similar masterpiece!! Well no Mr Gorman this is average in the extreme and possibly you should keep to your day job, I will certainly not be reading any of your future kindle publications and for all those who awarded 5 stars I can only presume you are either friends or family or have a limited reading taste........
