I loved One a Second After which precedes this book and enjoyed One Year After just as much. I would suggest though that it would not make too much sense without reading One Second After first which explains in detail about the disaster which has befallen the earth and background to all the characters. I have seen some reviewers complaints about the narrator's Southern accent, but I didn't have a problem with it. Maybe because I'm not American!
Couldn't wait to finish it but now I want more. Here's hoping that it will become the second of three, or maybe four?

Very disappointed, was looking forward to this as the first book was excellent...this is pants!
looking forward to seeing where this story is going and how it ends hopefully well..
in the third book
Sa good as the one second after.
Is all we fear in a SHTF scenario, to fight against our own guverment.
this series is not one of my favourites as it is always based around one town amd the characters don't change much plus there is not much action. not my favourite but it is a good read. I'd like to say couldn't put it down but that would be a lie.
What did you like most about One Year After?
Took the story of one second after forward. But very annoyingly a different narrator... which detracts from the feeling of continuation.
What other book might you compare One Year After to, and why?
The postman... trying to rebuild civilisation
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Enjoy is perhaps the wrong word... but accepting the remains of the reavers into the community was very memorable.... but the ending felt too contrived... I was begining to think that the small band of college school kids had increased 10 fold .
Any additional comments?
The return of hopless career politicians after everything folk have suffered in the first book is so annoying... but actually so likely to be true!
