Great story about what could have been

A different way of telling what could have easily happened if a limited nuclear exchange had a occured between the US and the USSR.

Detailing how the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) emitted during the nuclear explosion destroys delicate electronic circuits.

Describes how reliant we were in the 1980s on electronics and how society collapses when it all fails. With the modern digital cyber age we now live in, we probably wouldn't stand a chance.

This is a relevant story for the modern age, that is well written and read. Extremely thought provoking.

I have a new favorite narrator!

Any additional comments?

I had no idea that this book was written in the 80s, but it did have an "older" feel to it, in a good way! Have you ever picked up a classic and the contrast to their writing style and today's author's writing styles are completely different? That's the feel this book gives. And add the narrator into it, and you get thrown back to your childhood, when you were sitting in front of your scholarly grandpa, engrossed in his story telling.

I can't add anything that hasn't already been stating in other reviews. 2 guys go to explore America a few years after a nuclear war. They document what they see.

Warday

This was a really good book!Kevin Pierce does a fine job with the materials narration.Warday is an apocolyptic adventure through a landscape that is so familiar to most of us.It was very relevant and rather creepy listening to the stories of devastation caused by an act of terror,yet that phrase was not in the book.The Russians drop bombs of varying sorts on different parts of the USA on 10/28/88.This knocks out all electricity and kills thousands of people and is known as 'Warday'.The 2 main characters are reporters taking a 'walk' through America to see what it has turned into and write about it.It gives one a lot to think about.
