The author tries hard to write an entertaining story and at the same time make the book educational. It would have been better if he just stuck to the story and not tried so hard to write a survival manual.
The narrator was horrible. His deep voice was painful to listen to as he attempted to change from character to character. It was painful to listen to and this was almost the first audio book I returned for a refund.
If I could have edited this story I would have drastically changed the main character. The main character comes across as know it all. In the scene where he gathers his coworkers and tells them he thinks the country was attacked by an EMP he starts rambling about survival skills. It was ridiculously stupid.
I was more disappointed in the authors opinions and suggestions of survival and equipment during the story. I have served in Military Special Operations, currently work on a SWAT team and own my own firearms training business. The opinions expressed by the author concerning gas impingement weapons is false and he is spreading the myth that there is something wrong with gas impingement weapons like the standard AR15. Additionally he discusses the use of his "sniper rifle" and clearly does not have any reputable training in that skill set. At the end of the day I would rather have the author write a survival manual and detail his opinions more clearly or write a good book and not try to express his uneducated opinions.
No matter how far fetched the story line the book is chock full of historical accuracy mixed with wonderful fantasy. You want so much to believe that Lincoln was this much of a bad @ss.
This is a story you want so much to be 100% true. Regardless it is a great story.
I don't think you can compare it with anything. The history can be compared to the events that took place at the Alamo but this is an epic story. The story line was well written and enjoyed how it flowed.
This was an awesome book from start to finish.
The story drew me in and was difficult to walk away from.
This was a long and all to often boring story. Small pieces grabbed my attention but the story failed to draw me in.
