The world has been devastated by an all-out nuclear war. Chuck Broussard and his wife, Rebecca, live in an apartment on the outskirts of Chicago. When their neighborhood encounters its first zombie-like radiation victim, Chuck decides it’s time for them to leave the area and head south. Neither Chuck, who was a financial advisor, nor his wife, who was a school teacher, know anything about survival.
Parker’s novel, Enduring Armageddon takes us through the challenges and horrors that the Broussards endure to survive and move on through this post-apocalyptic landscape. The story is told from Chuck’s point of view. We watch him struggle to come to terms with the new rules of society while learning to do whatever it takes to keep his wife and new found friends alive.
The book is well written and edited. The story requires a suspension of belief and has a lot of graphic violence. The reader rides a rollercoaster of emotions. It’s refreshing in the fact that this is a story of someone who isn’t prepared for the end of the world and yet they manage to find their way. 4 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
