Publisher's Summary

The EMP hits. The lights go out and silence roars. Society is on the brink of violent chaos. The only way to survive is to get out, away from the cities and into the wilderness.
Max is an office worker with some gear and a plan. He's one of the first to realize the unspoken dangers. A few years ago, he inherited an old farmhouse. His plan is to get to it as fast as possible and bunker down. He thinks he's ready, but he quickly discovers that there's more to surviving than just having the right gear.
Mandy is a waitress with the day off work. What seems like a normal power outage quickly turns terrifying. Her peaceful town is no longer the home she once knew. She's offered a way out, but can she put her trust in a perfect stranger?
Georgia is a single mother who just wants to keep his two teenage kids safe. She drives a pickup and loves hunting. She has skills that could keep her family alive, but is she ready to make life or death decisions in the blink of an eye?
Do Max, Mandy, and Georgia have what it takes to overcome the unexpected? After all, even the best-laid plans can come up short.

Good story re systems crashing - will listen again

Enjoyed the good examples and bad examples with consequences for either behaviors, mother trying to steal two different times with bad consequences, Max a good example - while you cannot help everyone, you can help some; Max thought he was prepared but realized he could have done more. The need to avoid strangers whose motives you do not know. Two suicidal people - Norma and Jeremy - they could have survived but gave up - NEVER GIVE UP. Jeremy's bad example of his life course - futility of pursuit of money- Norma's pursuit of fun, foolish, aimless life goals. Drug addict Chad useless until he made up his mind to be productive.

Good examples of when the crash occurs, need to act decisively - Max leaving work ignoring his boss' threats and the mother gathering her children from school ignoring
the teachers. FOCUS very good.

Please, please, please do a sequel to this book. I want to see how the small group of Max, Mandy and the others go about sustaining themselves. Practical examples of unselfishness, hard work, cooperation, planning and follow through.

Good story line but...

Some obvious continuity problems. Somewhat unrealistic situations. Also this author is obsessed with girls bodies 😕

Fairly shallow story

Not bad but nothing special or out of the ordinary. Just a standard apocalypse story
