Excellent book about Surviving an Apocalypse

Would you consider the audio edition of Half Past Midnight to be better than the print version?

The audio version of this book was fantastic! It was very realistic. I will listen to this again. Very thought-provoking.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Half Past Midnight?

I liked this book from the very beginning. I was hooked right away. When Leeland hears what is happening he wastes no time in kicking his survival skills into high gear; giving his whole family a task to do in order to prepare for immediate evacuation from their home. This was clear throughout the whole story where he proves his leadership skills even when he has to let others do things their way.

Have you listened to any of Corey Snow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I will. He is a very gifted narrator. Corey Snow is a natural. I will look for other books narrated by him.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This book SHOULD be a film. 'Surviving a Midnight Apocolypse'.

Any additional comments?

I love how the author Jeff Brackett leads in each chapter with a Nastradamus Quatrain. It makes this book cohesive and reminds us that D-day is possible. It brings a certain reality to this book. A wake up call. What WOULD you do? How WOULD you survive? It was a great listen!I received the audiobook free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.

Any additional comments?

Jeff Brackett's Half Past Midnight, Narrated by Corey Snow is a great book. It keeped me rivited to my speakers throughout the entire story.

The story is in the same genre as Televisions "Revolution" except this book is much better; sticking to a single storyline and this story is complete.

The story starts quickly, and the characters are established with the depth needed according to the story line and then grow as the story moves forward.

In short, World War III starts and Leeland Dawsett is a survivalist that has prepared his family for the possibility of war. When he sees a second "sun" in the sky outside Houston he knows he only has a little time to move his family outside the target rich area of Houston, Texas.

As Leeland and his family move North to his Mother-in-laws home the outlaws are already out in force. This story moves from one man's effort to protect his family and moves forward to him becoming part of a community that is trying to survive and rebuild after Nuclear bombs and EMP blasts have left all modern electronics useless.

Nothing is boring in this story as it keeps you on the edge of your seat. The author's use of humor is balanced with the bloody violence of war.  I was presently suprised at every aspect of this story. Truely gripping and realistic in my limited knowledge of the subject matter.

I highly recommend this audiobook .
