Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Rawles’ latest novel, set during a future global collapse, features characters in different parts of the world coping with life stripped of modern conveniences and technology. It’s a bit like the NBC television show Revolution but on a more global scale. People must rely on each other, and trust is as big a commodity as gold or silver. The novel follows Survivors (2011) and Founders (2012), both of which follow concurrently what Rawles calls “the coming collapse,” making it possible for readers to jump into the beginning of the end at any point. For dystopia and action fans. --Jeff Ayers

Review

Praise for EXPATRIATES

"A wonderful work of fiction" - Alphecca

"Expatriates doesn't disappoint in the technical nor page-turning sense" - Survivor Jane


“Rawles is an amazingly gifted author who has singlehandedly reignited the postapocalyptic thriller. Survivors is an instant classic.” – Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Full Black

“An incredible tale.” – AmongTheLeaves.com

Survivors, painting a realistic picture of life with no plan to survive the harsh realities of a crash, has given me a glimpse into how the other half lives, and how I can further prepare to help my fellow man.” – Paratus Familia Blog

“It's [three hundred and seventy] pages of adventure, excitement, and page-turning thrills.” – IfItHitsTheFan.com

“Rawles' Survivors is well worth reading. . . well-written and informative, and speaks with an honesty and bluntness often missing from the policy prognotications of the political elite.” – The New American

James Rawles is the godfather of modern survival/collapse fiction so I was super excited for the release of his 4th book in the series but unfortunately about 50 pages in that turned to disappointment. As a daily follower of his blog I saw before the book came out that it would be focusing on Northern Australia (among other areas)which I have spent time in so right there major cool points.

I have to say though this book reads more like a collection of unfinished short stories. He'll dive into great detail briefly and then jump ahead a year and then to another set of characters and then back a year and then to another character and then ahead 3 years and then be very vague almost like he's boring himself telling that part. There are a few good action scenes and some of his interwoven "how to" advice (for example several pages are dedicated to a list of books the characters downloaded that you should actually have in real life) which is nice but overall I just couldn't get into it.

He tends to be critical of reviewers who don't sing his praises but I hope he takes our critiques to heart. Focus your attention on a cohesive story line and remain consistent in your level of detail if you want to make another 5-star book like "Patriots".

This is the second book in a row from Rawles that has ben a let down. I was hoping this book would be an improvement over the last but it is not.

Patriots was an excellent read but each book since has never left me with the same satisfaction. At this point I no longer look at Rawles as the bench mark.

The title says it all. I have read and re read patriots many times. This Ex Pat thing, isn't a novel it's a game scrabble gone very wrong. I love JWR, his books, talks and information. This book had to be all about money, because there is not one redeeming quality about it.

My husband and I have read aloud to each other Mr. Rawles' previous novels and have enjoyed them for the most part. Sometimes we groaned at the profuse detail but know that some folks are into that. In this novel, we just couldn't handle the on and on descriptions that seemed to sideline the story. It was painful--we so wanted to read and enjoy this book. Mr. Rawles is a good writer and his website survivalblog.com contains a wealth of information that can be lifesaving. I hope he writes another novel and concentrates on a good, cohesive storyline. Leave the endless detail the blog. Thanks for a good try but it just didn't work for us.

If I could give this book not stars, I would. I'm convinced that those who gave five stars are friends and family. The book is so bad, it was the first time since I began reading this genre (over 40 books now) that I considered not finishing it. I did finish but was pissed. I loved Patriots and gave Founders the benefit of the doubt but this one was so pointless, uninteresting, and boring, I couldn't help but post a negative rating. I know Rawles has a cult following but I'm not in it...to many other good works out there to enjoy.

I have to admit, a lot of my interest was based on the fact that most of the story was set in Australia, where I lived for four years from 1970-1974. The military conflicts were interesting and fairly well written, but I didn't think the characters where developed sufficiently, nor did they express any principles that struck a chord with me. I've read many apocalypse and post-apocalypse novels I liked better than this one, but perhaps that is because I thought this was an apocalypse novel, and it wasn't. It was a novel about a Muslim-inspired war that was barely won by our side.

Not Rawles best work. Boring.never connected with character. Dialogue was contrived and silly. No "wow" moments. Cannot recommend this book.
