Book Review Disclosure: 48 Hours by William R. Forstchen

I can’t begin to imagine what I would do if I was faced with this dilemma. I have always liked reading apocalyptic type thrillers. This book however truly made me think what would we all do, if we knew we had 2 days until we perished. 48 Hours is a very well written book, with very real characters. Characters that impressed me with how they handled things. Especially the main character who is completely selfless. Prior to reading this book I hadn’t read anything by William R. Forstchen. Now I have two more of his books on my reading wish list.

You can find 48 Hours on Amazon and your favorite bookseller.

Book Description

In 48 hours, the Earth will be hit by a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from the Sun, a “Carrington Event” that has the power to shut down and possibly destroy the world’s electrical infrastructure. To try and prevent permanent damage, everything goes dark prior to the hit: global communications are shut down; hospital emergency generators are disconnected; the entire internet, media broadcasting, and cell phone systems are turned off.

Will the world’s population successfully defend itself in the wake of the CME, or will mass panic lead to the breakdown of society as we know it?

William R. Forstchen is at his best in 48 Hours, a tale of the resilience of American citizens when faced with a crisis.
