Summary

From G. Michael Hopf, the acclaimed apocalyptic and best-selling author of The New World series, is back with an exciting new and dark apocalyptic novel, Day Of Reckoning.

The day started like any other, but it ended with the human race fighting for its very existence.

It was:

A day of sorrow.

A day of sacrifice.

A day of death.

A day of reckoning.

great read loved it!!

great story line with some good twists and turns. couldn't put it down so finished it quicker than I wanted too! found an error which is a suprise with Hopf where the reporter stamped on his phone being wise so he wasn't followed but 48 hours later put his phone on charge in his flat back in France. slight irritation with that not being spotted by editors but other than that I loved it and can't wait for book 2.

The Beginning of something Great.

As usual G. Michael Hopf delivers,a new take on the modern world and the many threats faced.
he builds up the story with an Arsenal of characters and a solid plot.the action is well paced and I listened to the book in 24 hours.
looking forward to the story continuing. a very timely read.

Pulled from today's headline news.

Not your usual terrorism apocalyptic fare! There is much background information and conversation before the meat of the story makes an appearance. There is little character development so you don’t get to know, like or dislike them. All is not lost though. The story is interesting and especially significant since it roughly follows today’s headline events. I like the less-than-usual way the story develops, I only wish it had moved along a bit quicker. The narration is very good, which helps enormously in the delivery.

This was a winner

This book was great. It was almost two books in one. I can not wait to see if there is a sequel.

Sadly it could happen thus way

This book deals primarily with the discord within the U.S. leaving the world vulnerable. it is a bit frustrating as the end of society does not begin until the end of the book (which is sad in itself that it is disappointing to those of us that like a zombie story).

Not bad, not great

Would you try another book from G. Michael Hopf and/or Joseph Morton?

I am a fan of Hopf's work, but i cant say so much for Joseph Morton.

Would you recommend Day of Reckoning to your friends? Why or why not?

Maybe, it wouldnt be the first book recommendation i would give.

What aspect of Joseph Morton’s performance would you have changed?

Joseph Morton is not a horrible narrator, but he also isnt really good. He sort of reminds me of listening to "Grandpa's stories" kind of thing. He has very little voice flexuation, but he is able to make slight little changes from character to character, but he runs out of distinguishable character voices quickly.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

I generally enjoy Hopf's work, but I think the narrator left me cringing on this one. This PA story twists the modern day terror treat with a unique perspective on a mutant/zombie bio threat. Joseph Morton has a limited scope of voice manipulation and I've listen to many other books he has narrated. There were a number of moments that I got tired of listening to Morton, but the story itself kept me engaged. There are roughly 4 or 5 separate character story lines to follow in this book and for the most part its pretty easy to track. Hopf writes the book as both a solo novel and also leaves plenty of room to write a sequel or start another series. If he changes the narrator, I might stick with it.

Good Story BUT....

I really did enjoy this story, it actually scared me but the narrator was so bad it took all i had to keep listening. I hope there is a second book but PLEASE get a different narrator.

Wow

It started off slow building the backgrounds of the diverse group of protagonists and antagonists, building up the story.
The setup was detailed and I didn’t realize how the it suddenly built up to round out the story and the sudden end. I cannot wait to read the next book. Wow.

Wow! Terrifying, realistic, and timely

This is the most terrifying post-apocalyptic book I have read (listened to). I say that because there are ways to prepare for many disasters, but with terrorist attacks, we are powerless. The sense of suspense and the main plan held me captive and really hit home with me. The characters are realistic and varied, giving us multiple views of the big picture. However, there are not so many of them that we can’t remember them all. G. Michael Hopf expertly wrote it so that we forged connections with all the characters, in one way or another. There is definitely a main climax, but the story is so full of action and emotional or mental reactions that I was fully engaged throughout the whole book. Even though this Audible is over eight-and-a-half hours long, I couldn’t put it down, just now finishing at 5:30 in the morning. Joseph Morton does an excellent job narrating. He definitely helps create emotional responses with his performance. I know this content is something I won’t be able to get out of my head for awhile. I highly recommend this Audible.
