    I just started reading this an hour ago and am only up to page 62 but HOLY SHIT. What a great book. It talks about an EMP bomb taking out the entire U.S power grid and electronics and the story of two families and the decisions they are facing in this new no-power world. Really good read.

    I found that a while back. I read it when I'm bored at work. I'm at p185 or so. Good read.

    Why do all the diesels work after the EMP? A modern diesel car or truck has just as much electronic BS in it as its gas counterpart.

    Still early in it... interesting read so far...

    Lights Out is a good read, a little slow in places.

    Anyone know how to shield a home or garage from an EMP like in this book?

    Effective EMP shielding is difficult. Most things that are EMP-hardened have less to do with material shielding and more to do with design resistant to disruption or destruction by EMP.

    It's ok so far. I'm on page 65. There are some inconsistencies but nothing too bad. Like how does a group with a survival ranch set-up like that not have any gun people or hunters or self defense people? Seems like they would be the first people recruited. Interesting enough though.
