i was not a hugh fan of this.. but it does help to complete the series.. Bring the all the players up to date. Not the best in the series but not horrible either. No where near as good as the others
I loved patriots. Its my favorite TEOTWAWKI book
a storm of swords
anger. I felt I had already read a good portion of the book
I know this book is closely tied to Patriots but there are many parts that seem identical. I have never liked reading books twice and thats what this felt like. It felt like a copy and paste job. It would be a good book if I had never read patriots.
Nothing changed. There was no new information that was added to the story and I quit it with an hour left. Very sorry that I purchased this.
It was a good story the first time that I read it....
Yes, but it would have to be a great plot.
Save a credit and look for another series until there are more positive reviews.
I'm a apocalyptic story fanatic...maybe that's why I prep. I've read to0 many end of the world as you know it books.
If Rawles would have continued writing based on his first two books it might have made a 4 or 5.
Rawles spends several chapters attempting to convert the reader into his idea of the appropriate way to practice religion. It's not a indirect approach either its an all out assault.It's no secret Rawles is a religious man. You could tell that from his first two books and how the characters were portrayed as practicing Christians.I didn't mind it at all in those books. However, this book goes well beyond that and provides you with the finer details. I honestly thought I was listening to a book on religious doctrine. It was absolutely unnecessary and served no real purpose in the story. Rawles also copies word for word sections out of his other books...it was very disappointing. You could have done so much better Rawles. If you had saved your religious teachings for a book specifically on that subject and took your time with this one. You could have created a great story based on the same events depicted in your other two books. If you had plans for any more books, you may find your sales disappointing. With this book you will have lost a lot of your dedicated readers such as myself.
A concentration on anecdote and situation including cause and effect, rather than depicting every character as uber religious and ultimately righteous.
The most interesting is the second half, with actual story and conflict. Least would be the background of every characters ultimately Christian religion.
All lengthy depictions of religious background, it can play a part but not over power the story.
If an author would like to further their religious agenda, it should be done subtly and without the sacrifice of their product. This piece seems as it is trying to play the evangelicalist.
It was just small pieces of his previous books
Written a story that had some new continent
He was fine
Most of them, it was poorly written, especially after reading Patriots and Survivors
First let me say the other Rawles books are very good. This one was BAD. You would have to be a born again Christian to really enjoy this one.
Lucifer's Hammer then Jakarta Pandemic
I know Rawles is better than this and he will write another one. When he does, I hope he leaves the religion to a minimum. I realize there probably is an advantage in a survival situation if you are tied into a religoius group, but not all survivors would be religious. At least I hope.
YES as I think Rawles style is interesting to me and like minded people. This story however almost seemed a rehash of allot of the Patriots story. It is tied into the other books really well. Its hard to say what book to listen to first but Id say patriots first then survivors then this one. At least thats how I read them.
Humm IDK dont watch allot of television.
GET Ready for it.
The religious overtones were just got in the way of the story. Although the story itself was just a rehash of the first two books.
Religious right overtones too great.
