To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It took me a while to get into it, but it soon caught on and was a riveting read after that. As a fan of the apocalypse genre, I like seeing a lot of detail about preparedness and how people actually survive. Those things make a better read for me than the constant battles and death. That said, I've already purchased Book 2 and look forward to following these characters further.
The story line was believable until the fighting started, then the scenarios lost credibility and became less practical. I'll still finish the series. This is why I don't generally buy series books, they trap you with less practicality. Fairly well researched, for the most part.
I really enjoyed this book, as I do most SHTF books. This is well written, has great descriptions of the characters and landscape, and some awesome action scenes. If you’re into TEOTWAWKI books, then add this series to your list. They are very enjoyable!
Characters are complex and relatable. Everything is well written. Author maybe should have done a little deeper research into NC’s fauna. There have been no eastern cougars in NC for decades. They are considered extinct everywhere except Florida. If there are cougars in N.C. it’s like one cat you’ll never see and if you do it won’t be while walking through the woods with 3 other armed dudes. That aside, the book is absolutely worth reading; go ahead and buy it. Not as good as Going Home, but what EMP book is? I’m definitely going to buy the rest of the author’s series.
Liked the book. Bet you still hear about the VW 😉. Did not learn much on staying alive after a EMP. Hopefully that will be covered more in the next book which I will get. Also bet you have never been hit in the head near as hard as you write about. Or you are a hell of a lot better than most. Not picking on you just point ing out where I think you fell a little short. Good luck
Well throughout story telling, and easy to follow story. Likeable characters and believable storytelling to make you feel like you are right there with the characters. Can't wait to read the next book.
It took a bit for me to get into this book but I enjoyed it after a bit. Enough so that I purchased the 2nd in the series. So far it seems plausible - it is not completely cookie cutter - people die that you care about or I would expect to live. It is not so formula based where good always prevails
Good book...I can't wait to read the next one. Jack Hunt is a good writer and continues to surprise and awe with his view point of the world. EMP would devastate the US without a doubt...reading about it helps to prepare for it..maybe.
