No. I understand why he wanted to write this book. It makes total sense. It just wasnt my cup of tea. I preferred patriots.
It was good. I love how he name drops. He tells you everything down to the name brand of the equipment being used. I really like that.
I personally think it should have stopped with patriots. This book was ok but the next book, founders, was going too far. Its like he is running out of fresh material so hes writing the same stuff.
entertaining while informative
One Second After. Another book about the collapse of society the the possible consequences from a complete breakdown of the modern network.
Yes it is very informative and entertaining at teh same time
The Bike trip accross Europe
They are all done well I have no favorite
This is for the Newbee that should understand what would happen after shif day
Any thing from Mr Rawles
You fall into the book, It ended
yes for people allway suprise me
If you want to see real life Not live in a bubble this is the book for you
Oh yeah, already did! Great story and packed with things we all need to know!!!!
The horse ride from Belize to New Mexico
Great Variance of voices
Get in, Sit down. Shut up, Hold on and Get Ready to know the future
Prepers would proly want to hear this
Yes,This is a good book, but it is the same story with the same people as Patriots,it's just an in depth back ground on some of the people. I think Rawles may have needed some fast money or had a contract to fill fast. There is nothing new in this book. It would be a great novel if he had taken the two books and put them in the same covers.
I liked all of them, he did a great job
As I said it should have been put with Patriots and written like Steven King does, you know real long, in detail so you know the smell of the dust on the lamp,then it would have been a great novel not just a story.
Quick flow of the story.
My gym workouts increased during this book. A good book keeps me on the treadmill so much longer.
All were well done although Mr. Hill's voice adds age to every character.
Its all very good. I've already purchased Patriots and listening to it.
I hope there is something else in the pipeline. I'm addicted.
less story lines and much less lengthy boring back stories
the big picture story line
i going to finish it, but to all you dont waste your time
If the story would have followed less groups of people it would have been much better because more of a story would have been created and not just bits and pieces of non-sense.
Nothing like his amazing book patriots, looks like i'll have to read that one again.
How every voice he imitated sounded like a mexican girl.
The last maybe 2 hours of the book started getting interesting although I almost didn't make it. Put the book down around 7 times for being disappointed.
This book is a prequel to patriots so some of the information is helpful if you havn't read patriots yet but the only part that is useful is the Doyle's.
among the top...great plots and character development
The helo, plane, bike, boat, and horse trip for the young LT traveling from AFG to the USA.
Great depth in character variety.
Survivors...when "one day at a time" is a stretch, sometimes all you can do is survive.
Rawles' first book in this series, Patriots, is awkward...stuck between a how-to-mannual and a novel. Survivors is much smoother, an easy read with incredible character development that draws in the reader, has them begging for more, and asking...when is the next novel coming out?????
