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.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, now on to "rules of darkness", only downside is I'm reading them too quickly, :( but I can't put my kindle down, i even took it out with me the other evening so I could still read, how bass that lol, great book, definitely recommend it,
I've read books in this genre for years; I am particularly fascinated by EMP-related stories. I read all four books in this series and have to say they got better and better as the series went on. To be clear though - the first book was really great. Some of the books in this genre are plagued by errors of one sort or another, whether it be poor character development, unbelievable story-lines, poorly written dialogue, misspelled words, distracting use of language, and the list goes on. Absolutely not so with Jack Hunt though! I felt like I was reading a book by a mainstream author (no disrespect meant) who is on the NY Times' Bestseller list. It was hard to put any of the books down as I went through the series; and here's something that, to me, is really telling... I remember how the series started! That's how I know it's a good series. If I can vividly remember what happened in the last book or the one before that. With this series, I vividly recall the opening story that was four books ago. That's not the case with some series books in this genre. A side-note - I live in the town that's adjacent to the town where the bulk of the story takes place. I enjoyed reading the book and picturing the places he wrote about so well. Kudos to Jack Hunt! Now I'm delving into another series of his - the EMP Survival Series. Here we go!!!!
I'd agree with a few other reviewers that author wrote this on a 8th or 9th grade level, and was weak on vocabulary.. Too much of the plot action was framed around protagonists letting things happen to them, and thus was implausible/improbable. Too many descriptions revealed that author was not fully versed or knowledgeable of what he was writing about. Ex: cartridge reloading machine: Author attempted to clue in the reader on what it did, but was sorely inaccurate, missing vital parts of the reloading process. Please. Author also doesn't seem to know the difference between "ground" and "floor," using "ground" when he meant "floor." Simple way to remember: "ground" is outside, and "floor" is inside. Got it? Very irksome to read these inaccuracies. Please: buy and use a dictionary and thesaurus. Also use subject matter experts. Thanks.
I really enjoyed the first book and have read many of the author’s books. The second book was even better than the first. The boom follows up after the first five days or so of the EMP attack and Tyler, Erika, and Nate are in Whitefish with Tyler’s family. Gabriel is seeking vengeance for his twin brothers death and going after Corey with all he has. The book adds a new character, Jude, who has another survival group camped near Whitefish. An interesting twist for Tyler becomes known and now he knows why his “father” was pushing him harder than Corey when growing up. Great read and looking forward to the next book in April.
