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.

Ultimate NeoCon conspiracy theorist offering.

What did you like best about Tomorrow War? What did you like least?

Best...it is a professionally produced, fast paced and well researched dystopian tale.

Least...the author's political ( constitutional absolutist and government conspiracy theory promoter ) position is the sole, and exclusive reason for writing this. He explicitly takes a taking a highly right wing, libertarian position which is grating and , frankly, annoying.


What could J. L. Bourne have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Stop with the neocon government versus the people psychobabble.


What three words best describe Kevin T. Collins and Jay Snyder ’s performance?

The performers are very good, especially given the material they have to work with. Both performers are authentic, consistent and creative.

It is a shame they are being used as mouthpieces for this politicized presentation.


Did Tomorrow War inspire you to do anything?

Regret the political schisms in the US.


Any additional comments?

Don't get me wrong here. This offering would get higher marks if it didn't descend into a radicalized version of the authors anti government paranoia. OK I admit that I stuck with it to the end, if nothing else to ensure the accuracy of my review.

It is not a bad audiobook,but be aware of the POV the author is very explicitly attempting to communicate. If you can get past that, it isn't too bad.
