Inhaltsangabe

In a small North Carolina town, one man struggles to save his family after America loses a war that will send it back to the Dark Ages.

Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States, literally within one second.

This book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future and our end.

Kritikerstimmen

"[An] entertaining apocalyptic thriller....fans of such classics as Alas, Babylon and On the Beach will have a good time as Forstchen tackles the obvious and some not-so-obvious questions the apocalypse tends to raise." ( Publishers Weekly)

Americans don't cannibalise their neighbours!

What's new: This time it's an EMP instead of a zombie apocalypse or a super flu.

What's not new: Everything else.

In fact it's mostly really old. Same characters that have been seen 100 times – just flatter. A town full Christians and soldiers. Nice, white, heterosexual American patriots (plus a black soldier and the most patriotic Pakistani-American ever featured in literature). While the world plunges into chaos the little town prevails –both physically and morally!– thanks to its Christian college and a professor of military history who keeps reminding everyone of Gettysburg and of Omaha Beach (omitting Wounded Knee, Hiroshima and Abu Ghraib), reciting Lincoln's and Roosevelt's speeches and saluting every flag he sees.

"We're still Americans!", is the most repeated sentence in the book.
Whether it's about sharing food or not turning your neighbours into food.

Spannend und gut verständlich

Ein Hörbuch auf englisch, dass spannend und gut verständlich war, aufgrund des Sprechers. Besser als viele die ich bis jetzt gehört habe. Leider gibt es noch einen zweiten Teil 😉

Chilling

A chilling tale (very well told) as it shows the very vulnerable nature of modern society. EMP attacks are the poor mans way of getting even and would catapult humanity (or at least those affected) back to the 18th century in a heart beat. The human tragedy would be unheard of.
