Comments Day of Wrath

  • Petra X

    Update Read this:Twitter employees threatened with death if they shut down terrorist accountsThis book is really prescient, and is a brilliant partner-read with Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.This is how WWIII is being fought, with terrorism rather than tanks and frontlines. Everywhere is the frontline now. All men who don't believe in this form of fundamentalist Islam, including all other Muslims, are the targets. The key for women, it seems, is invisiblity.(view spoiler)[Update 1 In view of the kil [...]


  • Gary

    Whether you're a liberal or a conservative; whether you're religious or not, this book is a must read for the simple fact that our world is limited only by our imagination. Before 9/11 we could not imagine evil people flying jets into tall buildings. Before this book I could not imagine evil people attacking small children.After reading this book I realize that my definition of evil is framed by what I could do to another human being. I now realize that I'm very naive. And that scares me greatly [...]


  • Rodney Moorhead

    This is probably one of the more frightening books I have read. It is so realistic and it could happen. It is about a very low tech, coordinated terrorist attacks across the country by several small teams of ISIS terrorists. I hope and pray this book does not become prophetic.


  • Nicki Rhode keck

    This is one of the most harrowing and disturbing books I have ever read. It is also one of the best books I have ever read. I think every single person in America should read it! It is a scenario that could happen here. I think the scariest books are not horror books about supernatural vampires, etc. The scariest books depict things that could actually happen here. As the author says, don't expect to be entertained. But do expect to be made aware.


  • Gayla

    More so even than his book One Second After this is a very likely scenario we face today. With our porous borders, ISIS and the general unrest in the world you owe it to your family to read this book today! Download the Kindle version for $4.32 now from . It is a quick read.


  • Lawrence

    Very, very plausible and it can happen here!!WOW!!! This book was very thought provoking and will put something on your mind. It hits right on point with what's happening in our world today. I highly recommend it to everyone.


  • Charles

    This is a book written on two levels. It works on one, and not on the other. As political polemic and call to action, it is quite good. As a novel, it is not very good.Fortschen made his name with the excellent “One Second After,” which highlighted the dangers to the country of an EMP attack. This book is Fortschen’s attempt to similarly highlight the dangers of a low-tech wide-scale terrorist attack, in this case on numerous schools and then on people rushing to the schools. Fortschen exp [...]


  • arthur wong

    A must read for anyone claiming to be American.Americans need to wake up to the reality of this story. Though it is fiction, it could certainly happen here tomorrow.The lack of control over our borders and the push for acceptance of other's beliefs, religions and lifestyles, has opened our country up to a myriad of possible terrorist activities. Instead of teaching our children respect, manners and right-from-wrong, we've raised a generation of lazy, indecisive, entitled, spoiled brats. It is ve [...]


  • David Douthit

    This book is very scary. Especially if you have school aged kids or drive the freeways. This is one book everyone should read. Once you are done. Those of you that wish our borders to remain uncontrolled, might understand better why they need to be tightly controlled. Why some countries eliminate people that cross illegally or place them in prison. Right now, I see the events in this book being incredibly easy to pull off and there wouldn't be anything anyone could do to prevent it. I fear it wi [...]


  • Dale

    Published in 2014 by Spectrum Literary AgencyWilliam R. Fortschen notes in his introduction that he felt compelled to write the story after a long discussion with a couple of friends about ISIS and the porous nature of America's southern border. What he came up with is this novella that is jam-packed full of action and very short on things like character development and a real resolution. But, it was written as a warning more than anything else.The main characters are Bob Peterson and his wife K [...]


  • Mmyoung

    What can one say? Sloppily written (grammatical errors and syntactical infelicities abount) and deeply unconvincing. The author puts phrases, statements and arguments in the mouths of his various bad guys, liberals, teachers and reporters that demonstrate a lack of ear for the ways in which other people say and think things. The book feels strangely padded for a what is merely a novella and makes no compelling argument to anyone who might disagree with him. This is not a claim/argument that ther [...]


  • Richard E.

    unsettling, prophetic, unspeakable actions carried out by international actors. HIGHLY Recommended to anyone who has gone places and done things, military, police, Contractor. Please read this book AND if you are out of shape, allowed your Skills to degrade and NOT LATELY driven down the road and thought, "WHAT would I Do if this happened? What would I do if my family was with me? what IF my family was somewhere else and THEY were in trouble. TIME to rethink and rebuild those skills. the Enemy w [...]


  • Twobchelm

    This author wrote the chilling novel, "One Second After" exposing the real possibility of terrorism coming to the US. He now presents a scenario of the terrorist group ISIS attacking what we treasure most, our children. The unthinkable becomes more of a reality in this book where you begin to think differently than you ever thought you would.ocking.


  • Shane

    This book gives a terrifying account of what an ISIS attack on America could look like. It was so current and realistic based on what is actually happening in our world today. It's a quick read and will definitely make you ponder the question "how can I keep my family safe?"


  • Vicki Elia

    Audiobook ReviewPreppers rejoice! This book, if it can be called that, is like a fantasy segment from Fox News -- where a blo0dy terrorist horror evolves across the United States. I'm surprised Forstchen didn't infect the ISIS killers with Ebola.


  • Sonya Guidish

    Very frightening. This could happen tomorrow and the outcome would be exactly as the book says. Wake up people!


  • Allen McDonnell

    I have not seen any other versions of this story so I can not compare, but the narration is good and the story is chilling and believable. Highly recommended.


  • Rebecca Dean

    Wow!


  • Mrs. GroahRock Ridge High School

    Another thought-provoking book by William Forstchen. Forstchen is master of fear-inducing, prepper-making novels, and this one does not disappoint. When a group of ISIS militants across the country launch their attack on the Day of Wrath, many Americans are in complete disbelief and shock over what unfolds. The ruthless killing that begins in schools, of all places, shakes the foundation of the country. Forstchen taps in to several widespread beliefs about the radical extremist group, making the [...]


  • Connie

    ISIS may already have a plan like this being implemented throughout the United States. We would never know until the worst started. As reports of hundreds of school children in scattered towns across the United States are being murdered by small teams of ISIS fighters anxious to die for their cause, parents are rushing to their aid. But the deaths in the schools are only the beginning. A total breakdown of the infrastructure of the country can fall as a result. ISIS leaders are pleased as they w [...]


  • Eliot Burdett

    Fictional account of terrorists that attack schools and exploit a nation made vulnerable by complacency, arrogance, a twisted culture and political correctness. Horrifying so not really an enjoyable book to read, but it was obviously written to cause the reader to think about different aspects of western culture and society. It certainly achieves that goal. Many will think it has a right wing bias but left and right are outdated concepts nowadays and thinking that way will make the reader blind [...]


  • Pam Shelton-anderson

    I really had to think about this one for a while. Are there some minor mistakes, sentence structure issues? Yeah, but not major. This is quite over the top but no one could say something like this is not possible. I don't really believe the US would be destroyed if martial law was invoked. For the writing etc it is a 4.0-4.5. Because this bothered me a lot and made me think for several days, it deserved a 5.


  • SSteppenwolFF

    Good story idea but not fleshed out enough and way to short for a subject far to complex for such a brief attempt to tackle such a emotional American possible reality . Also a little to obvious right wing flag waving for my tastes .


  • Keith

    As always, William is an excellent writer who’s stories flow effortlessly. This short work has a great premise and a lot of promise. There were things I loved about it and things I didn’t. Not one of his best works.


  • Derek P.

    A quick read, well written and frighteningly plausible. Think this can't happen in the US? Read this book.


  • Ogden

    Forstchen did it again. This is shorter and more rough than One Second After, but it delivers a blow just the same, this time about a likely terrorist attack rather than EMP blast.


  • Melinda

    Scary.


  • Kathy Ursenbach

    I can't rate this book. it was horrifying. It will haunt me for a long time.


  • Kmac

    Scariest book I've ever read, but every American should read it.


  • chucklesthescot

    Bob is a paranoid man who follows the news and takes seriously what is happening in the world, especially the rise of ISIS. He carries an illegal weapon to school where he works and where his child goes, in case anything happens there so he is not left helpless. He has seen so many school shootings in the past that he is willing to risk losing his job to keep himself and the kids protected. On this day, he takes his twelve year old daughter Wendy to school, leaving his wife Kathy at home with th [...]
