More About This Book

Overview

On a Friday afternoon before Labor Day, Americans are getting ready for the holiday weekend, completely unaware of a long-planned terrorist plot about to be launched against the country. Kyle Tait is settling in for his return flight home when a single nuclear bomb is detonated 300 miles above the heart of America. The blast, an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), destroys every electrical device in the country, and results in the crippling of the power grid, the shutting down of modern communications, and bringing to a halt most forms of transportation.

Kyle narrowly escapes when his airplane crashes on take-off, only to find himself stranded 2,000 miles from home in a country that has been forced, from a technological standpoint, back to the 19th Century. Confused, hurt, scared, and alone, Kyle must make his way across a hostile continent to a family he’s not even sure has survived the effects of the attack. As Kyle forges his way home, his frightened family faces their own struggles for survival in a community trying to halt its own slow spiral into chaos and anarchy.

Based on scientist’s predictions of what would happen if a single nuclear bomb is detonated over Kansas, 77 Days in September follows Kyle and his wife, Jennifer, as they are stretched past their breaking point, but find in their devotion to each other the strength to persevere.

    Very good read

    If you are into the Post Normal Society crash books, otherwise known at the "SHTF" books then this would be a great read.

    This books traces the challenges a guy has when society as we know it collapses while he is far away from his family on a business trip.

    His mission - get home.

    I am a fan of this genere (which started after I read One Second After)

    There are some disappointing books on this topic but this is not one of them.

    If you are a fan I think you will enjoy this book

    I recommend it!

    I was fully engrossed by the story and burned through the 700+ pages in two days. Being a fan of the genre, I was pleased at the realism of the plot line, and the characters. This is not the typical lone wolf mall ninja Mad Max fantasy some readers hoped for and for that I am thankful. This was a great read that makes a powerful point. Wake up America! Special thanks to the author for a job wel done.

    Excellent Read!

    I got this book because it had a lot of good reviews. I don't usually write a review of a book, but after spending the last two days immersed in this one, I just had to write a review. This is one of the BEST books I've read in the past year. The characters are so well written and believable and the plot is well-conceived, I was frightened and horrified at times and by the end of the book had dissolved into emotional tears. If you like a good survival story in a situation that could be entirely plausible, read this. I will be looking for other books by this author, but I'll bet that none of them can be better than this one was. Thank you, Mr. Gorham, for writing this book.

    An interesting book about what may happen if an EMP attack occur

    An interesting book about what may happen if an EMP attack occurred on the United States. The story takes place in two places, Montana and on the road with the main character trying to return home. The book does a good job of balancing time spent with the characters and action scenes of survival. The characters are likable (if a bit over righteous at times) and act as I think a normal person would which sometimes has you screaming “What are you thinking” but being under that kind of stress I would imagine would cloud anyone’s judgment. A good book if you like end of the world survival reads.

    Tends to lean to the Right, which is okay with me. In a world where
    there is no government to take care of you, survivors tend to be people
    who already knew how to survive without handouts before it hit the fan.
    The social program people go crazy and get killed or starve PDQ. The
    story does not have many strong women in it, and that detracts from the
    experience. Writing and editing are weak at times, pace gets bogged down
    at times. I still enjoyed most of it and give it three stars.

    Well written & well worth the read...

    After reading the reviews, I decided to give this book and author a chance. By now you've read other reviews and know what the story is about. All I can add is the story is well thought out and moves along like one of Montana's charging buffalos to its satisfing conclusion. Well done Ray Gorham! I'm keeping an eye out for your next project. I've already recommened this book to family members and friends. For those reading this review, buy it and grab a comfortable seat. It will be awhile before you get out of it. Enjoy.

    good intro but downhill from there

    Too much emotional dialog and not enough action
    Great intro but the story moves very slow and the main characters boring and rather helpless
    Ok attempt

    Good Read

    The USA is hit with a EMP. Electrical is wiped out across the nation. Planes fall from the sky, Cars stop running, All of the lights go out. This a story of one mans journey on foot from Texas, where he is stranded, back to his family in Montana. It is a well written fast read. I enjoyed it!

    Jason

    As a father and husband, I have wondered in the past what I would do if I was torn apart from my family in a disaster situation. Never in my wildest dreams did I think about being seperated by 1500 miles from them. It would scare me to have to make it back from just 100 miles. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and had a hard time putting it down. I am not an emotional person except when it comes to my family, and I could not help relating to Kyle's character. This story made me feel like I was in it. I felt his pain, his frustration, his sense of loneliness out there on his trek home. I loved this story and will definitely recommend this book to friends and family.

    Gripping Read

    I was a little worried that this book would be more of a political statement wrapped in a thin plot but was very surprised and pleased that it captured my interest so quickly and thoroughly. The story moved along and the characters were engaging.

    I highly recommend this book.

    This is not really a preparedness manual by any means, but it is a grea story. If your a fan of this SHTF genre and books like One Second After, 299 Days or Truth's Blood, you will have a terrific pleasure ride for 700 pages.

    77 Days In September

    This book was a great read. When I started reading I couldn't put it down. Just enough anticipation to keep me going on to the next chapter. Cudos to Ray Gorham who is an independent author. I look forward to reading his next project.

    Great read!

    I really enjoyed this book. I love the genre and wonder how me and mine would fair in these situations. It really makes you want to make plans, "just in case"! I hope the author writes a sequel or another angle to this story. I would buy it and recommend it to friends.
