    One thought on “The Great Collapse”

    1. Imagine waking up one morning to find that all of the modern technology we depend upon is gone. How would we survive?

    2. Oh dear. There were a lot of problems with this.The first problem was on me. I didn't realize at first that I was reading what seems to be a piece of Christian fiction coming from a standpoint that I really don't care for. Once I figured that out, I could forgive the attitudes on Christianity and read for content.The book is very repetitive. The wide-spread problems that would be caused by the event the book revolves around are repeated by every character. In detail. Over and over. Other random [...]

    3. A complex, exciting and brilliant techno-thriller, which Author Jeff Horton has somehow managed to infuse human drama into as well- this is a must read for those who savor novels with an utterly unique plot and characters. VERY highly recommendedRick FriedmanFounderTHE JAMES MASON COMMUNITY BOOKCLUB

    4. New author Jeff Horton debuts his first novel The Great Collapse with an eye-opening experience that should jump-start your heartbeat only to be reawakened with a new outlook on what the world could be in for if the path of technological invention does not slow down. Horton's innovative story presents earth in the very near future, when a military experiment gone wrong causes the entire planet to be wiped out of electronic technology all in a split second. The US Military was working on an advan [...]

    5. Its difficult to describe this book without delving too deeply in the story and giving away key details, so I will try to stay generalised in this review and not actually name so many names in incidents I mention.Initially I thought this was going to be a tad slow for me and perhaps a little too political, but upon getting further into the book you realise the beginning politics explanations are setting the scene for what happens next, why it happens and how people respond to it.The beginning is [...]

    6. This was an extremely interesting title and kept me reading till the end. I think what takes a while reading this one is how the mind can wonder and make the reader think about what they would do if everything electrical and battery operated was suddenly taken away and couldn't be restored. Jeff Horton did a great job at throwing me into a desperate situation with characters I cared about and could relate to.

    7. This was a great book. It is surprisingly possible, and very realistic. There are many plot twists throughout. It has a good storyline and is a fiction book from a christian perspective. It is a interesting book and I recommend it for anyone.

    8. Excellent! A page turner with remarkably insightful plotlines! Will definitely make you stop and think!!!

    9. Although "The Great Collapse " started off a bit slow, as the plot thickened and the challenges for the survivors of the EMP and solar flare catastrophe increased I became riveted. Jeff Horton creates multi-dimensional characters like the enigmatic Colonel Conrad Simmons, a highly trained Ranger who's given the responsibility of establishing a civilized colony amid all the chaos. An orphan, a loner who's rugged and resolute in all his endeavours, Conrad shows a wealth of compassion for the stran [...]

    10. It was an interesting book, based upon Christian values, that I think most people should also read in case we do lose power for an amount of time. It gives vivid examples of how you could survive without any modern day technology.

    11. "The Great Collapse" is the first of the two books in the "Surviors of the Pulse" series. The book revolves around the collapse of modern civilization. This is definetly one of the best apocalyptic ficiton books out there. The story flows well and the laguage is good. There is also an underlying Christian tone that does not overshadow the story. This makes the book a pleasant and friendly read, as there is little violence, etc. Personally I found the book very exciting and it leaves you with a g [...]

    12. Well this book has an interesting storyline, I think it could have been more fully developed. The novel also could have benefitted from some much needed editing, however I found it enjoyable and the story moved along briskly even though it was somewhat of a slow start. I didn't realize this was part of a series but I would gladly read book 2 to find out how the author ties everything up.

    13. The dialogues weren't convincing; they seemed too constructed and not at all like someone really talks. Besides that, some actions were a lil' unreal. The idea of the book was a good one, but I don't think it was well developed.

    14. Interesting EMP story line, but many of the subplots are thin and are barely resolved (nor developed). I guess if it were really great I'd be interested in reading more since it is a series of book, zzzz
