I look forward to the next book.

The author managed to avoid the trap of writing himself in every character; even the two main ones are well differentiated.
Amazon Customer
The writing was well done and the characters were realistic as were the scenarios.

The narrative was great for the most part, with engaging discussion and ideas presented. But...
1. It seems no one edited this book. There are grammer and spelling mistakes all through out, and for me personally, it detracts from the story when I need to pause and figure out what the author meant to say.
2. There are parts that get confusing. The story will interchange between two people and you lose track of who is saying what.

With time and further writing, the author will excel with his future books- but only if he has someone edit them.

Davis Aurini is the greatest person in the history of humanity, even angels weep for they even so divine are unable to craft a work equal to the great mastiful Aurini. Socrates if alive today will have commit suicide for he knew that his wisdom and knowledge is no match to Aurini's. I bit that Shakespeare is crying in his grave for Aurini's greatest have foreshadow his. After my wife committed suicide not long after burning our five sweet children alive in the house I just return from Iraq where i loss all my arms and legs in a bomb blasts. Aurini's work was the only thing that keep going, that keep my faith in humanity living. Thousands of years from now Plato Decart will be lost in the sands of time, if remember at all only mention as a footnote a mere letter to what will be said of Aurini. We all should be pride that we live along side a greatness such as Aurini, the most tragic thing that could happen to the human race will be death of Aurini, even humanity's extinction itself will be far less tragic than Aurini's death. I am shock that not all are amaze by this individual, just look at what he says about women and minorities this man will make all the other great philosophers look brain dead. Only a evil Cultural Marxist Social Justice Warrior Mangina will not be enlighten by Aurini's awesome words of amazement, if any man is better than god it will be him.

I gave this book 5 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.

I will be honest, I am somewhat biased, I only found the book because of Aurini's youtube commentary (which I enjoy immensely), so I didn't spend alot of time trying to find things that I didn't like about it. I'm going to quickly go over the few things that could have been done better for the sake of keeping my bias in check.

1. One of the major character's name is Raxx. There is an interesting aesthetic claim I have which counters this issue, but just from a fellow writers perspective, Raxx is a silly name. It got on my nerves more than once.

2. It's a slow start. If I wasnt interested initially in the writer just a quick glance at the first few chapters would have put me off. It gets much better have the first 10% of the book is finished.

3. Its short. I think I read somewhere that it is part of a continuing series, and if thats the case then all is forgiven, but the pacing is a little rough once the story picks up.

Thats really all the problems I had with it, and since they are very subjective I dont think they should hurt the public perception of how good the book is.

Before I go on and praise anything I dug about the book I want to discuss the aesthetic claim I made.

The book feels like a 1990's videogame. If the world ended in 1995 and ended up like the first fallout then thats what this book feels like.

I love that.

It is an honest, dirty, and actually fairly realistic portrayal of human nature in such a scenario, and the aesthetic overlay of ancient M rated 90's games makes the whole thing super badass.

I also really dig the philosophy.

As a subscriber to the author's youtube channel and lurker on his blog page, I see a lot of what I have read and watched of Aurini reflected in this work. YMMV depending on your personal biases, but I consider this a mark in this novel's favor.

The main characters are likable (Raxx especially), and they develop in interesting ways throughout the story. The supporting cast is fleshed out enough to be interesting while not stealing the spotlight, which helps move the story along at a comfortable pace.

The body count is high (par for the course for this genre), though I like that the count is a tad higher for the bad guys. That said, the bad guys are not completely expendable, and enough have gotten away for recurring villainy along the way.

The villains are themselves appropriately heinous and degenerate beings, though I consider it another mark in this work's favor that their acts are not spelled out pornographically: evil can be appropriately conveyed with some metaphor and choice wording.

The book is presented in an episodic style with minimized dead space, so the story hums along. This makes the work a quick read, though it's by no means light on the pages.

Lot of potential to develop the story from here. Highly entertaining and interesting page-turner, I look forward to see where Aurini takes the story from here.

An enjoyable read.

The story is relatively sparse, and provides a minimalistic journey through a post-apocalypse. The interaction between the characters feels realistic. The world feels reasonably well thought out, in terms of the small details.

As a criticism, the two main characters venture into 'Mary Sue' territory in terms of their general capabilities (a cut above anyone else) and strategic forethought, and their ultimate triumph in any particular scenario never really feels in doubt.
