Apocalypse / post-apocalypse books are my favorite sub-genre of books. (If there was such a list, I’m sure I would have read most of the biggies. And no, Dystopian is not the same thing and does not count.) So, ONE SECOND AFTER . . . is probably one of the scariest apocalyptic books I’ve ever read.
Whereas most other apocalypse books are hard to imagine, even if they are feasible, One Second After is frightening because of it’s very feasible and possible scenario. It had me wanting to go take a survivor training class.
