Publisher's Summary

In this riveting, ultrarealistic novel from J. L. Bourne, a man struggles to survive after the US infrastructure collapses and martial law engulfs the streets of America.
In the not-too-distant future, during an unacknowledged mission inside the Syrian border, a government operative unwittingly triggers an incredible event that alters the course of society. A terrible weapon has been unleashed - a weapon that, left to run its course, will destroy the moral fabric of humanity.
In the midst of crisis, the population struggles to survive in a world short on vital resources. Inflation cripples the US economy, and post-war armored military vehicles patrol the streets.
One man stands up to push back the overwhelming wave of tyranny triggered by the onset of nationwide martial law. How can he possibly succeed against a high-tech and tyrannical enemy that is hell-bent on ripping liberty from the pages of future history?
From the author and military expert who brought listeners the riveting horror series Day by Day Armageddon, Tomorrow War is a compelling account of an alternate dystopian America located just down the tracks of oblivion.

Entertaining

Overall I really did like this book. It clipped along in a very engaging way. Good character development for a few key players, but others were extremely two dimensional. In certain spots it could have used a little more transition time- there were a lot of abrupt changes in plot that were very convenient.

There are aspects of the book that are *extremely* realistic and accurate- the guns, generalized tactics, likely reaction by the government. Other aspects... not so much. The best example I can think of is the Ultralight. I mean... come on. I know they exist, but in context it's ridiculous.

Huge portions of the book felt like a novelized instruction manual for armed resistance in a SHTF/EOTWAWKI scenario, along with being mildly propagandized. I didn't mind this at all, but some might find it tedious. There are some pretty heavy handed 'protect the constitution' passages as well which some might get tired of. But, once more, I was perfectly content.

Two or three brief parts make this a very R rated listen, just as a generalized heads up. Really bad (and originally unintentional) joke there, sorry.

Worth the listen I think. If you are way into SHTF scenarios/prepping/survivalist/or know what molon labe means, you'll love this. For most people this is something to save if you need some escapism or are short in your listening queue.

Oh, finally, there's about 30 seconds that qualifies this as a science fiction book, so if you're looking for even soft sci-fi, keep moving. Maybe the next installment will place it more in genre.

HIGH FUNCTIONING MORONS
Six very entertaining hours. Bourne does have a slightly different take on the post apocalyptic movement. In most books the government tries to help, but usually ends up being part of the problem. In this book our government is purposely the bad guy. Our KANGAROO GOVERNMENT brought civilization down on purpose, but I guess we have to find out in a future book why? Now our government with help of the ONE PERCENTERS is jailing everyone and oppressing us.

Oops!
I said six very entertaining hours, but the book is eight hours long. For six hours I was giving this five stars, but the last two hours were kind of boring. My mind starting wondering and I could not concentrate. Bourne needs to be more creative and give us food for thought, not just shoot-em up chase scenes. I also thought he could have explained why the US government did this. I guess he is holding that for a sequel. I also am not a fan of things being too easy. One or two days before the apocalypse, he gets his shelter built. He empties his bank account to get this done, because a co-worker prepper, warns him that the apocalypse is going to happen any day. He orders a small shelter and they just happen to install a big shelter. They just happen to set everything up for him. As another reviewer mentions, there are some abrupt transitions in the story. One minute he is in his shelter, the next he is flying to his brother's house, who is under attack. It seems like some stuff was edited out.

The narrator is excellent
