One Second After

One Second After - William R. Forstchen The first few chapters were a bit slow, but then it really picked up. I enjoyed this book because it gave me a very realistic glimpse into what it would be like if Americans no longer had access to modern technology. My desire to become a homesteader and get back to the basics has only been reaffirmed. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone with an interest in post-apocolyptic America.
