This novel takes place from May 2008 to May 2009 in a small town in the inter mountain west side of North Carolina.
The scenario is, someone sets off an Electro-Magnetic Pulse at the perfect height over Kansas and short circuits every piece of computer technology in North America from Central Canada to northern Mexico. When every civilian vehicle coasts to a stop and every civilian airliner that has a modern cockpit in in falls out of the sky, and every locomotive stops running how do you keep people in the cities fed?
A very chilling scenario based on deep research into just how delicate our civilization stands poised on the knife edge of modern technology. I bought it Sunday afternoon, started reading it Sunday night and finished it at 1 AM Wednesday morning because I had to go to work and it interrupted my reading
Very well written, very easy to read and comprehend. It is the story of one man's struggle to protect his family and keep them alive through the darkest days in American history.
If I could wave a magic wand I would say this is a must read for the entire PO community. It will make you think about what you really need to think about doing to survive if our society falls apart due to PO or any other reason.
