This is not the story of preppers with stockpiles of food, weapons, and a hidden bunker. This is the story of Colton Ryman, his stay-at-home wife, Madison, and their teenage daughter, Alex. In 36 Hours, the Ryman family and the rest of the world will be thrust into the darkness of a post-apocalyptic world.
A catastrophic solar flare, an EMP - a threat from above to America's soft underbelly below - is hurtling toward our planet.
The Rymans have never heard of preppers and have no concept of what prepping entails. But they're learning, and they are running out of time. Their faith will be tested, their freedom will be threatened, but their family will survive.
An EMP, naturally generated from our sun in the form of a solar flare, has happened before, and it will happen again, in only 36 hours.
This is a story about how our sun, the planet's source of life, can also devastate our modern world. It's a story about panic, chaos, and the final straws that shattered an already thin veneer of civilization. It is a warning to us all - never underestimate the depravity of man.

Unalloyed White Republican Privilege
I would recommend this book only as an example of how unpleasant the principal characters are and the underlying political message of the author and his Republican rhetoric. You can tell where this book is going to go and how things are going to play out well in advance. Granted there is some tension around the actual solar event. However, you have to listen to a lot of the authors uninteresting and frankly racist prognostications that to anyone with more than a handful of brain cells starts to become really really tedious. As an Englishman, living in the UK, I have one question who is Mike Huckabee and why should I care?
No. this is another of those books that is actually one slim book split into a number of parts to make extra money. Do not be fooled by the length as advertised as this inevitably includes a big chunk from from the next book. If this, or any of the other books was a good 9 -10 hours then I would. However all the books in the series come in well under 6 hours and at £16+ they are too expensive.
Kevin Pierce should not play the bad characters as black unless we are told they are black. He has a responsibility not to add context that detracts from what is written. Even when what is written is could be construed as racist twaddle.
I hope not. Not unless it is completely re-written and give some depth and substance.
As is usual with this genre more concern is given to the sexual mores of the characters and who they may or may not be sleeping with than is given to the random acts of violence these same characters mete out to others whether or not it is justified. Get your priorities right. You are not allowed to kill and main people until society has gone down the plug hole, at least in the UK.Also one of the main characters goes from not understanding what prepping means to prepping expert in lickety split time. Whilst this may be of some use for people who have bought this book as some kind of handbook it does become a bit like a big book of lists. If I want a manual I'll buy a manual.
