Well, if the country goes to hell with total breakdown of energy, law, and military, I can only hope to inherit a massive ranch (1,200 acres) with numerous living quarters and buildings ready for occupation (including a medical unit), land for crops and cattle (300 head in pasture), underground tunnels and, storage units full of food, ammo, weapons, military vehicles, crew-served weapon systems, explosives, and trained staff to use it all. Oh, and don't forget the $5 million in gold coins to barter with.
I'm about halfway thru the book and I'm not sure I will finish. The characters are without flaw, perfect bodies, perfect abilities, perfect tastes, sun shine and roses for everybody. Perfect daddy leaving perfect son a perfect ranch. Running 500 head of cattle on 3000 acres. In northern NV... Plus farming on that, with no mention of where the water is coming from. Apparently, it takes these wonderful people with great taste in whiskey 8 hours to ride around a little less than 5 square miles.
Editing errors always annoy me, since one person proofreading should've caught a bunch of them. Donned / dawned or reins / reigns Grammar errors, missing commas.
Now, I'm at the part, where the super folks at the Ranch rescued the sheriffs department of Elko county. And the deputies just happily go to riding those strenuous security shifts there, with never a thought or regret about abandoning the 10,000 residents of the county.
Way too unrealistic even for fiction. An estranged, deceased father leaves tons, and I mean tons, of military hardware and supplies for his sons in case of an apocalypse. Yeah, right. And, as with a lot of these type of books, there ‘just happens to be’ the right kind of people with the right kind of skills that join the ranks.
I am really hoping to like this book and series. I am hoping that the characters grow at least a second dimension. I am REALLY hoping that the author discovers his apostrophe key and the characters begin speaking like humans and not androids (contractions- it's (sorry, it is) the way most English-speaking US citizens actually speak). Please do not (don't) continue in this arrhythmic and unnatural pattern of speech or I will not (won't) be able to keep reading!
