What Would Do For 77 Days?

77 Days in September by Ray Gorham is one of those books that makes you stop and think. In this book the possibility of reverting to a time without electricity has occurred. This book chronicles the journey of Kyle who was on his way back from Houston, Texas to his home in Montana when disaster strikes. What will he do? Will he be able to get back home or will his family survive without him? Here is a brief summary of the book:

On a Friday afternoon before Labor Day, Americans are getting ready for the holiday weekend, completely unaware of a long-planned terrorist plot about to be launched against the country. Kyle Tait is settling in for his flight home to Montana when a single nuclear bomb is detonated 300 miles above the heart of America. The blast, an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), destroys every electrical device in the country, and results in the crippling of the power grid, the shutting down of modern communications, and bringing to a halt most forms of transportation.

Kyle narrowly escapes when his airplane crashes on take-off, only to find himself stranded 2,000 miles from home in a country that has been forced, from a technological standpoint, back to the 19th Century. Confused, hurt, scared, and alone, Kyle must make his way across a hostile continent to a family he’s not even sure has survived the effects of the attack. As Kyle forges his way home, his frightened family faces their own struggles for survival in a community trying to halt its slow spiral into chaos and anarchy.

77 Days in September follows Kyle and his wife, Jennifer, as they are stretched past their breaking point, but find in their devotion to each other the strength to persevere.

My review:

I loved this book. To see the experiences that people endure and how they face those experiences was amazing. It shows that a disaster can bring out the best and the worst in people. And it also shows that you really cannot judge a person because in the face of disaster you may be forced to do something that you would not normally do. So as the old saying goes, ” Don’t Judge Anyone Until You Walk A Mile In Their Shoes.” This book has taught me all about that. 


I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review. All opinions are mine.
