Jeff Brackett’s Half Past Midnight, Narrated by Corey Snow is a great book. It keeped me rivited to my speakers throughout the entire story.
The story is in the same genre as Televisions “Revolution” except this book is much better; sticking to a single storyline and this story is complete.
The story starts quickly, and the characters are established with the depth needed according to the story line and then grow as the story moves forward.
In short, World War III starts and Leeland Dawsett is a survivalist that has prepared his family for the possibility of war. When he sees a second “sun” in the sky outside Houston he knows he only has a little time to move his family outside the target rich area of Houston, Texas.
As Leeland and his family move North to his Mother-in-laws home the outlaws are already out in force. This story moves from one man’s effort to protect his family and moves forward to him becoming part of a community that is trying to survive and rebuild after Nuclear bombs and EMP blasts have left all modern electronics useless.
Nothing is boring in this story as it keeps you on the edge of your seat. The author’s use of humor is balanced with the bloody violence of war. I was presently suprised at every aspect of this story. Truely gripping and realistic in my limited knowledge of the subject matter.
