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.
Survivors is a shockingly realistic and lightening fast thriller about the coming implosion of America as we know it. Renowned survivalist expert James Wesley, Rawles has packed this story with the cold hard facts about how to stay alive in the face of mass riots, starvation, and anarchy. His expertise lends unforgettable, authentic detail to this season's most chilling novel. Listeners will not only be entralled, they will learn invaluable lessons on how to survive the coming collapse.

Gun loving Christians who can't wait to blow away unbelievers
No wonder Obama can't get any gun laws passed
Too much religion, not much plot. First book was full of useful survival techniques scenes of how to protect one's self, this one has lots of love stories which are badly written and extremely boring.
While I very much enjoyed Patriots and the way it provided detailed instructions presented as a story, this book is over the top with Christian propaganda at the expense of story and instruction.
The story was not very realistic. I barely finished it. Seemed like it was pg, mentioning how good christians are every 20 mins. The author LOVES god we get it! I thought this book would tell the brutal survival for life but it was basically boring. The main character/s got by way too easy with little conflict. If u want an amazing post apocalypse story get Swan Song. you will not be disapointed.
just the words he read.
disappointment, it wasn't brutal, gorry enough.
I LOVE AUDIBLE!
I will just say this. Read what many others have said before me. They are right. This is right wing christian redneck BS. Some parts were
As a Christian and fan of post-apocalyptic literature I was looking forward to this book. I was greatly disappointed. The author uses what seems to be the entire book to preach his about his disapproval off being of the gold standard, his hatred of the U.N., his belief in owning lots of guns, and his preference for the King James Bible. His condescending and smug tone was only outdone by his flat characters and missing story arch. The book simply ends in mid sentence. This book would probably be enjoyed by skinheads or anyone living on a fenced compound in north Idaho.
Rawles needs to consider other faiths and not have all his
Kind of flat, and if you have read the Patriots you know the rest.
He tries but sounds too much like he is reading a text book.
A low budget TV at best. I mean how would a movie/ TV show be able to hold most people with all the good guy praying and quoting the bible all the time? On screen that would get old.
I think Rawles is using his fame to write books that if they where just how to books would be fine but and end of the world story fails. I wouldn't read this for the action, but the thoughts and the how to parts.
Remove all the christian
The narrator sounded like a 90 year old that was constantly drunk.... All the characters sounded the same, hard to tell them apart.
it had NO redeeming qualities in it...
This sums up the book.......... blah blah bah, I'm a christian therfore I'm better than you....blah blah bah, I'm a christian therfore I'm better than you....blah blah bah, I'm a christian therfore I'm better than you.... YAWN.... No exciting fight or battle scenes. Not looking forward to the 3rd book.
