New York Times best selling author William R. Forstchen now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real...a story in which one man struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America loses a war, in one second, a war that will send America back to the Dark Ages...A war based upon a weapon, an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP).  A weapon that may already be in the hands of our enemies. Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future...and our end.

I usually like books like One Second After, where the book is all premise, and the story follows all the steps that follow from that premise. Seveneves was one -- what would happen if the moon blew up? -- and The Martian was another, and One Second After asks what would happen if an EMP (electromagn...

Poorly written military lecture, disappointing as it could have been so much better. The premise is great but it reads like a lecture interspersed with moments describing the scene before the lecture begins.

Great premise for a book but the story was pretty much the same as [b:Earth Abides|93269|Earth Abides|George R. Stewart|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1320505234s/93269.jpg|1650913]. An EMP weapon is still a good idea though for a post-apocalyptic story since it is statistically more p...

Just didn't like this one from the conversation style right in the beginning to the main character knowing everything immediately. There was no suspense, and none of the characters seemed very like able.
