Summary

Three billion people died the day the Veech appeared.

Forced to reconcile with the world-shattering fact that humanity isn’t alone in the cosmos, the resulting war for the future of mankind shaped humanity’s destiny and challenged it to grapple with its place in the universe.

For the men and women who survived Invasion Day and the devastating war that followed, their stories paint a picture of the everyday struggle and experiences of the regular folk who carved out a living at a time when the very future of our species was uncertain.

Delve into their stories. Through riveting interviews with ordinary people from all walks of life, Invasion Day explores the human experience and how humans found the strength to keep going when everything they loved was at stake.

These are their stories.

Absolutely brilliant

I have read hundreds of sf and fantasy books over my life, but i've not read/listened to anything like this book. The Audiobook format suited this book much better than the printed book. It's a compilation of interviews with a whole range of people who witnessed and survived an alien invasion of earth, and brings to life the whole event much better than the usual linear narrative type of book. The range of interviewees goes from young military soldiers through to deep southern grandmothers, all who witnessed and experienced the invasion in different ways. The use of different voice actors for the various interviews brings the whole book to life. Gripping, very well thought out and a must listen for any sf fans. Brilliant.

Great Story

Great way to tell a story, after most of the population of earth have been killed in an alien invasion a journalist interviews survivers and these are their very different stories.

Invasion Day

At first I wasn't sure about listening to this book, written as a series of interviews with many different characters. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.

The author has done a good job introducing the reader to a character, then having them tell their story in an interesting, engaging and emotional way. Each character shares a different perspective of their part in the Veech War.

The narrators did a great job and their performances added a lot to my enjoyment of this audio book. I would love to know more about some of these characters and more about the War and its aftermath. I hope that the author writes more in this series. I was given the chance to listen to this audiobook by the author/publisher/narrator and chose to review it.
