Book 5: One Second After

One Second After by William Forstchen [link]

I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand it was an extremely thought provoking book that really made me think about the "what ifs" if this situation were to happen. On the other hand, the grammar and editing were atrocious. I don't know who the editor was, but there were frequent and blatant grammar and spelling errors, some sentences not even making sense. Overall though, while these errors were distracting, I still felt the book was worth reading.

From Amazon: "In this entertaining apocalyptic thriller from Forstchen, a high-altitude nuclear bomb of uncertain origin explodes, unleashing a deadly electromagnetic pulse that instantly disables almost every electrical device in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. "

Up Next: I believe up next will be "The Locket" which I checked out from the library. Either that or "The Time Traveller's Wife"
