Entertaining and better than average
on February 10, 2014
This is a good, self-published SHTF novel. Editing was good, the dialogue was good (although the buddy-dialogue between the protagonist and his friend was a little strained), the emotional drama regarding the protagonist's family was believable. I even found that the sexual situations were handled well. I enjoyed the treatment of the challenges of neighborhood organization. I also like that the fact that this book, unlike most others, wasn't set in the South.
This book has the usual pit-falls of the genre: the good guys are bullet proof and can take on literally dozens of bad guys with nary a scratch, etc. I also thought the conspiracy stuff (including a moustache twirling bond-esque super villian) strained my ability to suspend disbelief to the breaking point.
All in all though, a good effort.
