One Year After Book Review

One Year After by William R. Forstchen. I checked this book out from the library on Tuesday. Wednesday night I thought I would read a bit before bed. I could not put it down. Nearly five hours later, pumped with adrenaline I finished the book. This is the second in the series, following a man by the name of John Matherson. Three EMP's were detonated above the US triggering a Global Nuclear war with an impact on every continent. John Matherson is a retired military officer and local college professor in a small mountain town in North Carolina. He was home with his family when this event occurred frying all electronic devices. Now the country is picking up the pieces. This book picks up where the first left off, two years into the crisis.

The book is three hundred pages long. There is no sex described in the book, and there is some language and definitely violence. I would personally let a sixteen-year-old read it, but not my fourteen-year-old.

This book will make you want to stock your pantry and consider buying a gun.
