Publisher's Summary

New, four-books-in-one! Post-apocalyptic action! The Day America Died! trilogy plus book four - The Final Ending - all four books in the series in one audiobook!

A nuclear EMP attack would shove the USA back 150 years. Death, chaos, and lawlessness would prevail....

Zack Johnson is no hero, but he does have some valuable prepper skills to help him survive. There is nothing like a nuclear apocalypse to help a man grow up and become a hero as he helps his family and friends survive. He is 2,000 miles from home; the grid and all modern transportation have failed. The country is degenerating into violence and dog-eat-dog scenarios. People are killing their neighbors for a scrap of moldy bread or a sip of water.

Zack has to get back to Kentucky to find his daughter so he can take her to the safety of his farm. The Department of Homeland Security is forcing people into relocation camps for their own good. Can Zack save his daughter and help his friends survive the apocalypse?

Another great book by A.J. Newman. I loved these characters in this book. I would recommend this book and all of A.J.’s books. I listened to this book on audiobook.

Great story, great value!

Great story, great value! I got several days worth of entertainment while doing manual work with earbuds in listening to audiobook. What a great value for just one credit on my Audible account!

Well Done!

I think this is the first time I've ever heard a story narrated by BC Archer. He did a good job.

Lots of prepper tips in a story that goes beyond restoration of US. Starts with a dad needing to get home and what's happening on the homefront, but main character is a competent male best friend rather than a more or less competent female. Gave the story an entirely different flavor on all counts. Lots of battles, bugouts to different locations as 1 becomes untenable, warrior Israelis, even a decent president. Take overs by Chinese, Russia, Mexico and Cuba. Iran, Iraq and North Korea all thrown into the mix. Well done!

YA apocalypse

Definitely young male apocalypse. Had to role my eyes at some of the juvenile ideology. Was worried it might end up with the harem like Blue Plague, but it did not so I kept listening. I think I have listened to almost all the best zombie and emp audio books so not much left. Definitely easy to listen while driving or spreadsheeting. I’m glad I spent one ctredit for all three

it was ok, ..

it started off good but then fell into the continuous loop of "Oh No'es". Honestly bugged the crap out of me every time he would say Springfield
M&P 15.. it's a Smith & Wessin M&P 15, come on do at least the minimum research people.

Much better than expected

I was pleasantly surprised with this series. I was a little skeptical on the first book but the narration improved and the book hooked me in. Very much enjoyed it.

The end of the world as imagined by a 16 yo boy

This book is a terrible, cliche ridden disaster. The tone is set early on when the main protagonist celebrates his friend taking a dump inside the car of his ex-wife's new man, and it doesn't improve from there. There's even a van full of hippies on their way to a Grateful Dead concert for goodness' sake!

The world as pictured by AJ Newman is neatly divided into useless sheeple who sit down and die at the earliest setback, evil men ready to rape every woman and steal the last mouldy crust of bread out of their neighbours mouths, and the resourceful prepared who have all the weapons and know-how to survive. Of course the hero is in the latter category and not two days into events has sourced himself transport and an admiring fanclub ready to get their knickers off. He manfully resists their temptations (in spite of being a reformed whoremonger) while working his way across the land, helping the simple villagers mend their cars and find food and resources.. What a guy!

Having grown up in an area where natural disasters are fairly common and it's not unusual for people to be cut off from help, food, electricity or the law for days if not weeks, it doesn't seem realistic to me that everything would go to hell in a handbasket within a day of an EMP attack. People naturally band together in a crisis, help each other out and share resources. They are not prone to turning on each other like a pack of rabid jackals at the least provocation as this book tried to repeatedly hammer home.

Really disappointing. Glad I only paid one credit and will likely avoid anything else by this author.

If you like Gomer Pyle…

I am addicted to prepped/apocalyptic fiction and tried really hard to listen to this book but just couldn’t make myself listen anymore. The writing is trite and “relationships” move at an incredulous pace. Even for fiction. The writing and narration make the characters sound like country bumpkins. The main characters sound like Gomer Pyle. Of course all the women are beautiful and find the male leads attractive. Ugh.

As told by a horny 16 year old.

I listened to the entire series. It wasn't horrible and had some high points that were overshadowed by all the females with great hair and bodies.
