A solar storm has just hit the world causing a EMP event. A emergency manager visiting Atlanta, GA must find his way back home after this electromagnetic pulse has stranded him away from his vehicle and his beloved "bug out bag." With 180 miles to go to his destination, David must let his street smarts and survival skills kick in as food and water becomes scarce and societal breakdown proceeds at an unrelenting pace. An interesting and often funny cast of characters from the Deep South helps the displaced Prepper on his way, as he shares his knowledge of how to make do with common items in order to live another day. Ultimately, he acquires an old tractor and heads for home on a car-littered interstate.

Fantastic in every way.
I selected this book when I saw reviews titled "Awesome Prepper Story!", "Fascinating!" and "A Post Apocalyptic Treasure". I'm now wondering if the author's family posted those reviews. This is a mediocre story at best with a very armature narration. This story is on par with what you might find for free on line; something that was never publicized beyond someone's blog. I think the author is probably a great guy, and one I'd be happy to have a beer with (which he seems to have an obsession with), but his book was a complete waste of money. There were some survival tips scattered through the story, but they seemed to detract rather than enhance the flow.
I'm considering Half Past Midnight. I may also listen to The Dog Stars again. The Dog Stars is a beautifully written post apocalyptic story. If you haven't listened to it I highly recommend you do so.
His voices were distracting, especially in how he performed the females.
I really enjoy this genre of audio books. I almost had to turn it off a few times, but saw it through until the end. I guess if I had to name a redeeming quality it would be that the author clearly is an actual "prepper" and cares about helping people. While I didn't care for his writing I have no doubt that I would like him personally.
Don't waste your money. Listen to The Dog Stars, One Second After, or Breakers.
