Description

The highly anticipated follow-up to William R. Forstchen's New York Times best-sellers, One Second After and One Year After, The Final Day immerses listeners once more in the story of our nation's struggle to rebuild itself after an electromagnetic pulse wipes out all electricity and plunges the country into darkness, starvation, and terror.

After defeating the designs of the alleged federal government, John Matherson and his community have returned their attention to restoring the technologies and social order that existed prior to the EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) attack. Then the government announces that it is ceding large portions of the country to China and Mexico. The Constitution is no longer in effect, and what's left of the US Army has been deployed to suppress rebellion in the remaining states.

The man sent to confront John is General Bob Scales, John's old commanding officer and closest friend from prewar days. Will General Scales follow orders, or might he be the crucial turning point in the quest for an America that is again united? As the dubious Federal government increasingly curtails liberty and trades away sovereignty, it might just get exactly what it fears: revolution.

The narrator didn't ruin it for me..

Ok, so Joe Barrett did an awesome job narrating the first book and I was hesitant about buying the second book but did and once I started listening the narrator became secondary. I pretty much felt the same way about this book. The book is so good and the narrator does a good job, it's not his fault he's not Joe!!
For anyone who doesn't know the series, this is the third book and probably would not make a whole lot of sense with out listening to the other two books in order beforehand.
About the book: WOW!!! This book is really good, it picks up right where the last one left off. The story continues with the hardships and the discoveries of older computers that had been stored away and were off line and off the electric grid when the EMPs went off. I'm talking old machines with the standard 14" screens. But the new powers that be don't like this and there is a final confrontation that makes you sit back and think that Yes, I can see this happening. Scary. The end is kind of melancholy but good.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

best dystopian trilogy ever

Any additional comments?

I've read many a dystopian novel & trilogy in my 80 years, but never one so well written as this by a master storyteller, read by a narrator who so richly conveyed the various characters, and a cast of characters to care about. This story brought me to tears several times, but is far from maudlin. Again, the very best dystopian story ever. Read all three books. They're well worth the time.

I sure hope there will be another one.

I enjoyed listening to all three books. The story held my interest and I could hardly wait for this book to be released. You should make a movie from the three.

Jaw dropping conclusion to a chilling and dark potential future...

I read the first novel in this series based on a scary NPR piece about the potential risk that faces our power grid from EMP and what could happen and was unable to put it down... As was also true for the second installment, I could not stop myself from finishing this book. Thankfully with whisper I was able to sync up and keep on with it while working. Finishing it in a marathon read.
Stunning. A truly great story, superb performance and breathtaking experience as a whole. If you have not read the first novel you really should start there. I suggest, on and autumn or winter Friday night following work and call in Monday, because once you start you won't stop.
This is an eye opener work of fiction witch has all the terrible consequence of real world potential for actually happening. But be warned, it will rend your heart in two over and over again while the fate of your favorite characters play out.

'I love it when a plan comes together'

The After trilogy is complete and it ends as well as possible. The Final Day has some real surprises. The novels should be listened to in order.

The first novel in the series, One Second After, was narrated flawlessly by Joe Barrett. One Year After was narrated poorly by Bronson Pinchot using a fake southern accent. This novel is narrated again by Bronson Pinchot but without the fake southern accent. Pinchot is still not nearly as good as Barrett, but he does an excellent job.

I very highly recommend the After trilogy.

I did not enjoy the narrator.

It was a good ending to the trilogy. The monotone narration was distracting and boring.

Better than One Year After

This was better than the last novel but it definitely did not have the same heart as part one. One thing I really liked was revisiting a character from part one that was not in part two. I enjoy the narrator but little things bug me. One character's name is pronounced different than the forst two parts. Thankfully, though, New Jersey native John Matherson lost the Southern accent he developed between parts 1 and 2. The storyline had some plot holes and reality issues that gave the appearance that Mr. Forstchen is tired of this story and wants to move on. With all that said, I did enjoy it overall and find it a fitting end to the series. I hate to see it end but feel the passion ended with part one, which I listen to repeatedly.

Mr. Forstchen does it again!

If you liked "One Second After" and "One Year After", "The Last Day" is a must to listen and/or read. It was the perfect ending to the series. Bronson, the narrator of "One Year After" is back and better then ever. His narration brings this story to life. Looking forward to listening to and reading all three books again soon.
