Mr. Hemming carefully details the struggles of three groups of people have as they try to survive an EMP attack where electricity, government control and civil authority break down, leaving people on their own to fend for themselves. Sound far fetched? Ever hear of 'Katrina' or '9-11' or 'flash mobs' or 'occupy' movements? Do you remember the enormous power outage in the NE that stranded millions? Do you recall CT being without power for weeks just last month? I certainly do!
This is a long story and I savored every page of it. I was both educated and entertained as I read the book. The characters are well developed and their stuggles are at times gut wrenching and uplifting. You will not be disappointed.
The down side, if there is one is that the style of writing is unusual to me and it took a while for me to get into rhythm with it. With editing, this book should be a best seller and made into a movie or TV series!
What I LOVED about this book is that it shows a balanced perspective of different levels of preparedness, from the backpack survivalist to those who already live an off grid lifestyle. Not to mention it is a book that is very hard to put down. It is realistic and there are a few tips that I have taken to task and work. There is a very minimal amount of product placement, but it is entirely appropriate, its worth reading for that alone.
I have read every book in this genre available on kindle so far and I rate this most highly.
I also contacted Bruce in regards to his world renowned snares and he personaly sent me information on thier use in my country and his passion for his trade certainly shines though.

If you are questioning getting this book as I was for the price since its an "indie" author just get the sample. Unlike many samples this one is 58 pages and you can definitely decide if you want to continue or not. I personally didn't hesitate and after finishing the sample immediately resumed reading after purchasing the full thing.

Another pet peeve is the authors continuously using the term EMP incorrectly. You don't "shoot off" an EMP. For example, "EMPs were planned to be sent over their countries." You don't send an EMP- you detonate a nuclear weapon, and the EMP is one of the after effects (along with blast wave and radiation). Hearing the authors go on about shooting EMPs left me shaking my head.
If the authors are open to suggestions, this is what could make this a great novel:
1. Pick a tense and stick with it. The story is written in present tense, but the authors jump between past and present tense several times per paragraph (saying "had gone" and "had done" and "had said" ). Delete the word "had" 95% of the times it's used and the story will read better.
2. Completely kill Chapter 3, where the authors get overambitious, trying to have disaster stacked on disaster stacked on disaster to the point of absurdity. An economic collapse is certainly possible, or an EMP. Combining the two might be plausible if it's well done, like "Holding Their Own" by Joe Nobody. But trying to also toss in a genetically altered Ebola virus into the mix (on top of economic collapse and EMP)- and then never mentioning it again makes me wonder what they're smoking.

I really didn't like this book. I'm surprised that it has such high reviews from other people. I read the whole thing, mostly just to pass time, but enjoyed very little of it. Read morePublished 5 months ago by alex p
