EmP: Nuclear Winter by TD Barnes

TEOTWAWK. "The end of the world as we know it" This ring true when a new US missile defense measure causes a nuclear-tipped Chinese rocket test to change course and target Beijing. In the heat of the moment, a Chinese missile officer triggers the release of an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) device in Earth orbit as part of the nation's deterrent to a pre-emptive attack. The incident triggers the release of nuclear weapons that brings the dreaded nuclear winter that circles the globe for four years. Ninety percent of the Earth's population will perish in the aftermath.
The EMP series realistically depicts the life of a group of survivors living underground in the wake of an EMP and nuclear attack that destroys electronic devices and the electric power grids over much of the world. The story follows the life of a group of survivors sheltered inside the unused Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository at Jackass Flats, Nevada. At the same time, book one of the EMP series depicts what to expect in such a dreadful event that could happen at the hands of a rogue nation. North Korea, Iran, or even terrorists can deliver such a device on board a ship or even a backpack from across the border of a targeted nation. It could be a matter of when rather than a matter of if. In any case, the desperate efforts to survive following such an attack will be brutal above all imagination.

Decent story line, but damn, hire an editor. Numerous spelling/grammatical errors throughout the book. Would've read much better if it had been written in a causual tone as people actually speak. Seemed too forced and stiff.

240 pages. Not really about life after an emp. More like life in a 5 mile cave ( for years) that was stocked by the military with 300 people. Not much about how the rest of us would have to deal with it and thats what i thought i was getting. Will i buy book two? Or three? Probably because i am a sucker to see how a story ends

Great story.  Author is clearly knowledgeable, but he apparently didn't do every well in college English and/or  went to an editor who actually suffererd through an EMP event.  Mistakes on every page like "Hungary tiger" make this book annoyingly unreadable.  After 300 pages, I couldn't take it anymore.  Waste of money.  Read One Second After.  It's a phenominal book about an EMP event.

Outstanding book. It's clear the author has a deep understanding of psychology and an impressive knowledge about the potential effects of an EMP. I enjoyed the book and don't hesitate to recommend it...
