E.M.P. No finger on the pulse – Book Review

EMPHaving finally had time to complete this book purchased on Kindle quite a few months ago.

The story is about how “The world becomes technologically devastated following the electromagnetic pulse from a coronal mass ejection thrown out by the sun. Everyone, everywhere has been suddenly thrown back over a hundred years with no cars, computers or means of communication surviving the E.M.P.”

Eric does a great job in writing about the interconnecting lives of the characters within a community and those trying to make their way home or to a safe location and you “follow the efforts of a group of people as they try to make sense of what has happened to their lives.”

The story is graphical at times but portrays a true reflection of the effects of a disaster where we can see a quick breakdown of society, the evil element that we all know is present.

Lots of good survival tips used by the characters in particular an interesting firearm construction that would be ordinarily frowned upon outside the contents of a fictional storybook!

Personally I struggled with the written Scottish accent and had to double take most sentences to hear what was said and would have preferred it written in English, but I understand the reasons behind it.

I have had some communication with the Author Eric Methven through his and other Preparedness groups and follow his work on Amateur Radio and field radio.

Thoroughly enjoyed the book, awaiting the sequel which I understand is still being written.

It will be interesting read for those people in the preparedness community and those with their eyes open to reality of disasters.

    Yay, another book I want to read now! I agree that there are many interesting learning points in books like this. Makes it more fun to learn new skills than reading a “how-to” manual. Thanks for the review, Ian!
