Publisher's Summary

Being former cops they could not stand by and watch their neighbors be attacked by roving gangs.

Jake invited five fellow cops and their families to join him and his family to set up a safe and secure retirement community in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. The families worked together to become self sufficient and off the grid, as they believed at some point in the not too distant future, something would happen to cause a major collapse and survival situation. IT DID. This is their story of the perils of survival

5 stars with a few caveats…

Overall I loved this story and would encourage others to buy this book as well. I listen to about a book a day and this is one that I appreciated for the speed and depth of the storyline taking place over years rather than days or weeks. Well done. A few things bothered me… the one I’ll mention was the talk and thought that needed to be put into confronting Manny’s group. The cops had already confronted many other degenerates with no talk of after effects or repercussions on the soul with those so it made no sense that it occurred here especially after witnessing what manny’s group did to the family with children. That was way out of place.

The narrator frequently made it difficult to distinguish scene changes. One scene often ran into the next without even the slightest pause or change in voice inflection making it hard to figure out that one scene ended and another had started. He needs to work on his voice inflection and adding some feeling to his work. The voice changes he made from character to character were bizarre and funny at times. Not what should happen.

Continue writing Mr. Bosak!! You are very talented and gave a refreshing take on this genre!

amazon needs to hire better editors. This was a good story line but needed some help on the writing ability.

Don't waste your time or money

I was hoping this would turn out to be at least decent but it was absolute murder on the ears listening to this narrator. I'd give him less stars if possible. I'm not one for slamming someone's work but dear laaawd it was horrendous. the book itself was quite boring. I only made it a couple hours in( I really tried to hang in there hoping it would improve) and just had to stop. hopefully I'll be able to return it.

Conservative wet dream disguised as survival story

The writing is weak and the story is slow and often boring, but along the way the author dispenses good survival tips when he’s not bombarding the reader with his political views. I listened to the whole thing. Audio playback was also clunky.
