This could be interesting if every chapter wasn't a dig at global warming, hippies, the need for massive amounts of guns and the need to kill.
Could not stop listening, even though fiction, the thought provoking idea and the struggle after such an event is mind boggling. The fact that the very real threat of such, with the smaller enemies, would be very probable and catastrophic. Best read in quite a while.
This has to be one of the best books I've read in a long time. It will make you think very hard about the things we take for granted everyday. It will make you look deep inside yourself and wonder who the true you would be in this situation. Read it. Learn from it.
Techno-Thrillers, Jack Reacher, Mitch Rapp fan!
excellent novel. Scary good!!!
very difficult to hear about the likely effect of an EMP.
Story makes it hard to decide to live along either coast and makes easy to understand what the "Preppers" mindset is all about.
they might not be quite as weird as many people make them out to be
The narration from the first person perspective of the aging former military man is imperative to understand the gravitas of the situation, but also extremely limited in many ways not to mention, the author isn't great at depicting believable, positive, and fleshed out female characters.
It's made clear that the point of this novel is to draw attention to a major weakness and to inspire action in rectifying the problem, however, there were many times when this inability to maintain believable characters almost turned me off to the story completely. The message is important, it should be told better in order to reach more people.
Scary in its realism! This is exactly how the end will come! Great book with compelling characters.
