Excellent story of an alternate type of warfare.
It opened our eyes to the possibilities of a different type of attack. SCARY
I would like to believe that if this every happened in the U.S. the scenario portrayed in this book would all be fictional. Sadly though I think it would not be too far different. This was a well written book a compelling story with great narration. Recommended!
While I enjoyed the reading, the story just seemed so fantastical, so improbably, that I broke my suspension of belief and started to pick it apart. Where were all the chickens? The characters were obsessed with eating beef and pork. But where were the chickens? Any drive through any part of rural America, and you see all these wonderful chicken coops behind houses. And all those other farm animals? Where were the sheep? The goats? The llamas and alpacas? Ducks? Geese? OMG - I think I might be hungry! Anyways, I just didn't "buy" the quick starvation premise.
loved it....scary real life heart wrenching..I don't know what else to say ...informative realy good read. Not for children or people with mental issues
Nothing. This book was written to further a conservative agenda. Basically it had two themes: "the old ways are the best ways": and "damn liberals ignoring big terrorist threat." I should have known when Newt Gingrich read the forward.
What Genre? politically motivated fiction?
narration was fine.
Everyone should read this. If not for an EMP attack, at least for a financial system meltdown. Or maybe a food supply meltdown. Our daily lives are so reliant on a million electronic functions. If they ever stopped, or were interrupted for an extended period of time, we could be in serious trouble. Time for the govt to take this seriously.
This is hard information delivered in a well done novel and narration. We have been warned and the warning has been ignored on every level. Individuals can make up their own mind about the non-exaggerated scenarios presented by the author. The story is believeable and the narration well done. Written more about the subject matter than the characters although the author does a fair job in developing them. It served its purpose.
Yes. Anyone who cares about their family and their future needs this information and the consequences of not preparing. Listening to the story is a good way to deliver the facts.
How about a movie for Cable true to the book and not another FEMA commercial. CERT trained volunteers would benefit from reading this. It would encourage us all to take a refresher course.
