Audiobook: 36 Hours (Blackout #1) by Bobby Akart (Narrated by Kevin Pierce)

 A “Pre-Apocalyptic” book with tons of action

4.9 out of 5 stars

A fictional non-fiction book (well Akart and many others think that something similar to what 36 Hours is based on will happen in the near future).  The sun is the giver of life, but what happens if it suddenly wants to take that life away.  That is what this book tries to show. 36 Hours is a book about a non-prepper realizing the prepper ways.

In one of the first non-prepper (but kind of prepper) books I’ve read, Kevin Pierce still shines.  He definitely has one of the easiest to listen to voices.  Especially in books where the world is falling apart.

My favorite parts of this novel were all of the different scientific sections.  You can tell that Akart really did his research before putting words to the page.  The science feels real, which in turn makes this book incredibly terrifying.  I kept thinking, oh wow, well that’s terrifying, every time that Akart would have the characters explain the science behind something.

Parts of this book could almost be used as a prepper’s guide (which is what Madison basically reads to get prepared). And I think that prepper’s and non-prepper’s alike would really enjoy this.

36 Hours: A terrifying look at would happen in the hours leading up to a direct hit of an EMP sent directly from the sun.

My only issue is that this was really the “prep” book, the next book will have all of the goodies in it.  This was, for lack of a better term, a “Pre-Apocalyptic” book.

This is not the story of preppers with stockpiles of food, weapons, and a hidden bunker. This is the story of Colton Ryman, his stay-at-home wife, Madison, and their teenage daughter, Alex. In 36 Hours, the Ryman family and the rest of the world will be thrust into the darkness of a post-apocalyptic world.

A catastrophic solar flare, an EMP - a threat from above to America's soft underbelly below - is hurtling toward our planet.

The Rymans have never heard of preppers and have no concept of what prepping entails. But they're learning, and they are running out of time. Their faith will be tested, their freedom will be threatened, but their family will survive.

An EMP, naturally generated from our sun in the form of a solar flare, has happened before, and it will happen again, in only 36 hours.

This is a story about how our sun, the planet's source of life, can also devastate our modern world. It's a story about panic, chaos, and the final straws that shattered an already thin veneer of civilization. It is a warning to us all - never underestimate the depravity of man.

What will you do when the clock strikes zero?

Midnight is forever.

I’ve loved reading since I was little when my dad would read me Dr. Suess books. Fast-forward a little and I noticed that he was always reading on his lunch breaks at work, and I wondered why.Then, I found a book that took me to another place and time, to another feeling,another sense of “being”.It was the first book that I ever fell in love with, and I’ve been chasing that feeling ever since.
