2024 by Berkeley Rourke is a high-tension action novel that combines the best of what-if scenarios (a la Red Dawn) and nightmare predicaments (think of The Walking Dead) to come up with a post-apocalyptic thriller you won’t forget. The author takes us to a world where international enmity brings forth a nuclear war which opens a chapter of depravity that mankind may not survive. With the capitols of the world destroyed, the global economy collapses and governments are rendered powerless. The m ...more

I enjoyed this book when I first read it, but hearing the author added a few changes, I had to read it again. Glad I did! I mean who doesn't worry about an all out war, especially with so many countries having nuclear capabilities. Berkeley Rourke has updated this story to include what is happening in the turmoil of our world today and to predict what might just happen in the years to come, After all out war, one which might have been prevented if countries and leaders weren't so involved with w ...more

Really enjoyed this one! That which we all fear—All-Out Nuclear War—happens with vivid realism and casts Will de Young and his family into guerrilla warfare survival mode in 2024.

So many things we take or granted are lost when we are thrown back into a primitive state of living where day-to-day survival is not just about avoiding the enemy’s bullets, but also about enduring the elements without all the normal comforts of civilization. In this novel, we see how it might be and bears the question

At the outbreak of a nuclear attack, Government Official de Young finds himself in a race against time to find his family & take them to safety. However, arriving in Frenchtown, where he knows his wife & children should be, the area has been overtaken by out of control militia. Using marine-style tactics to outwit the enemy, this is a fast-paced & thrilling ride. Rourke describes each chapter with precision & a great knowledge of weaponry. It’s easy to imagine this book as a full ...more

Well written book. Enjoyed it. The first 75% of the book had me riveted. Experiencing how the war started, their background, getting the family together and fighting to stay alive. The last part, was dedicated to those who know all about guns, missiles, bombs....the military aspect and setting up a new government.

Giving the book 5 stars for the entertainment! It was a great read. Looking forward to reading more from this author. Thanks H. Berkeley Rourke!

Another fine novel from Mr Rourke. In a world decimated by nuclear war, the new order is chaos. The story follows a good man, a Marine, who, along with his father, and other likeminded individuals, attempts to restore order to their parts. The authors descriptive writing makes for good reading and it’s easy to imagine how real this could be. I recommend you read it and enjoy it as I did.

This was a interesting read the first time I read it. The author has edited the book and added a few things to the story, so of course I had to read it again.

A Haunting Story of War and the Darkness of the Human Spirit!
This is a very interesting story, told in a post-war diary style. It sort of stressed me out with all of the battles, as I am certain it was intended to. The author takes the "old school" military mentality and uses it as a premise for the survival of his protagonists. It is reminiscent of the Viet Nam era veterans I grew up listening to. Of course, any military member from any time or branch will relate to the sense of duty and the de

Action-packed TEOTWAWKI if more than a bit far-fetched

2024 offers-up TEOTWAWKI survival with an astronomically bloated body count inflicted by the book's ex-Marine Recon protagonist and his ex-Marine Recon survivalist Father.
There are too many far-fetched aspects, including:
>>Our protagonist declares that he was in "the NAM" in the later stages of that conflict, which ended in 1975. His exploits are not those of a 70-ish year-old in 2024, nor are his Father's, who'd be in his 90's.
