America is in the thrall of a full-scale socioeconomic breakdown. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation destroys the value of the dollar, and the population, unprepared for hardship, panics. Practically overnight, the high-technology infrastructure and chains of supply collapse, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every city. Law enforcement, transportation, electricity, fuel, and medical supplies are all in the past now, as the country staggers beneath its own weight. Lawless bands of killers roam the countryside, leaving devastation in their wake and now that the government is gone, the Constitution is at stake. Who will carry on?
In this chaotic and dangerous environment, a few families and individuals, bound together by their faith, skills, and foresight, must struggle not only to survive day by day but defend themselves against a new and vicious predator - their fellow man.

Movie loving Brit living Down Under. Anything 'end of the world' themed usually gets my attention, but The Stand has yet to be beat.
The key to surviving this post financial implosion world is to be a Christian and find other Christians. Do that, and you should be ok, though you'll have to defend yourself against many heathens. Oh, and buy silver and gold. There you go; saved you a download.
the story was great and the only complaint was the obvious same person portraying the characters.
For all your true patriots out there, you know why this book is so amazing. For anyone who has not yet encountered Wesley's works, prepare to have an eye opening and life changing experience.
great story. not a lot of technical talk but great story telling. the PG version of swear words was a Little annoying but I'm sure some would love that
And Buffalo George
Whether you believe that Rawles' books are good stuff or guano is a matter of your political persuasion. I thought that this book might just be a repeat of the first one, but it dovetails nicely. The book is an enjoyable read. People who believe that social collapse is possible will enjoy this book--the situations are probably a lot more simplistic than a real social collapse. The author proselytizes a good bit, the Morse code abbreviations are boring and a few towns are misplaced by state--details, details, details. Author knows his guns. The story line does just kind of trail off...I guess that the smash ending is in the third book?
The performance was solid so at least it didn't hurt to listen like it did to book 1. Relatively superficial. Literal complexity of a junior high novel. Much less survivalist and prepper info vs. Book 1.
