Publisher's Summary

In a world without power, Jason must fight for survival as he heads to the wilds of the Appalachian Mountains. In this story, ably narrated by Gabriel Zacchai, an electromagnetic pulse attack on the United States shuts down all power, communications and transportation. With no food deliveries, and no vehicles working, society begins to unravel. Starvation and death begin to reign and panic leads to violence. Marauding gangs roam the countryside, stealing, killing or worse and cities begin to wall themselves off from the danger outside. As society breaks down, Jason heads to the Appalachian Mountains to avoid the growing anarchy, hoping to wait out the chaos. The gangs threaten but loneliness becomes his biggest enemy as the solitude envelopes him. In a secluded mountain valley he finds a woman, Anne, and her two daughters struggling to survive. They are near starvation when Jason shows up. Violence soon follows him. Survival will mean fighting...and killing. The power hasn't returned, the country is still shattered and Jason and Anne must struggle for a new life in a dangerous world. If you like One Second After and other survival/post-apocalyptic stories, you will enjoy this personal story of trying to survive and thrive after an EMP attack. Gabriel's compelling narration brings this exciting tale to life.

To the Author

You have a pretty good talent for writing a story and keeping it interesting. However, here's a little constructive criticism I would like to toss in the mix for the future. The first point is learn the details! The people that listen to books of this genre are not lonely housewives or elderly women hoping to read about desire. When you refer to AR-15 rifles as .223 throughout the entire book, it drives me crazy because they are mainly 5.56. Although a 5.56 will shoot .223 ammo, the chamber pressures are much higher. Plus, you cannot use any found 5.56 ammo in a rifle chambered for truely .223. Please learn the difference!!! You built Jason as a former sniper that only selected a Ruger .223 caliber when he got out. Are you kidding me? These guys train with everything from the .260 caliber up to .50 cals and are intimately connected with their weapons. They may own AR-15s but an AR-10 is a more believable story. Jason took his bow and taught Katherine how to use it. Dude! There's no girl in her teens that is going to stealthily and accurately pull back a mans normal draw weight of 55 to 70lbs. Especially in a physically demanding role and a slightly malnourished state! Please learn the difference between a clip and a magazine. Lastly, the narrator was ok. Kevin Pierce as a narrator is on a whole other level. If you going to write a story set in the Appalachian mountains, a person with a clear yet refined southern accent for the narrator will do wonders for your story. That's enough!

Would you try another book from David E. Nees and/or Gabriel Zacchai?

No, I would not

What was most disappointing about David E. Nees’s story?

I really liked the story until Chapter 24 and what I considered a family friendly book did the nose dive into smut.

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

no, first and last.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from After the Fall?

Put the love scenes in a cold shower, knowing children listen to this stuff too. The graphic detail added not only nothing, it ended the story.

Any additional comments?

Audible needs to rate some of these books.
