Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Ok"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Its not a bad book overall. My main gripe is the necessity of the "born again christian" idealogy pushing. I mean no offense to those who are born again but, in some cases, this comes across as the fundamentalism that we are apparently so against in other religious forms and countries. Extremism in any form seems to disregard other persons rights.


    What could James Wesley, Rawles have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I look forward to reading his other book. i have already read Patriots. In both cases my comment above. Less on the religious stuff.


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s performance?

    very good Narrator.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The plot was good, narration was good and the tech parts were well explained.


    Any additional comments?

    I didnt love the book but it was worth purchasing.

    "Highly recommended"
    What did you love best about Survivors?

    I got to enjoy it as both a fictional work and as subject matter which is important (and timely) to me. I really enjoy the narration by Dick Hill.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Survivors?

    No real high spots for me, but absolutely no low spots either...just a nice steady pace throughout.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Dick Hill also narrated Patriots which was also written by James Wesley, Rawles. I really enjoyed both books (as read by Mr. Hill). In fact, I was a little sad when I listened to Founders (also by Rawles) and Mr. Hill wasn't narrating it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Quest for home after the crunch.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend any of the books by James Wesley, Rawles. I very much appreciate the need and necessity for Christian faith and moral compass that is illustrated in his books.

    "It was ok"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No. I understand why he wanted to write this book. It makes total sense. It just wasnt my cup of tea. I preferred patriots.


    If you’ve listened to books by James Wesley, Rawles before, how does this one compare?

    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.


    Do you think Survivors needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    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.

    "Patriots, the next chapter"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Wesley, Rawles again?

    Yes


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    I liked all of them, he did a great job


    Did Survivors inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    What did you love best about Survivors?

    Quick flow of the story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    My gym workouts increased during this book. A good book keeps me on the treadmill so much longer.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    All were well done although Mr. Hill's voice adds age to every character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Its all very good. I've already purchased Patriots and listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there is something else in the pipeline. I'm addicted.
