Most of the events in the book could very easily happen in the near future.

As indicated in the title, my opinion is that this author has potential. As is to be expected with a first effort, the book is pretty rough. Editing, grammar and punctuation are acceptable, though not perfect. Story is told from 3rd person, but the main protagonist is pretty obviously based on the author. As is not unusual, Dr. Foster has gone overboard in a few things: First, the heroic nature of the protagonist. Second, the political message. Personally, I agree with the main political message. However, I don't honestly think it has to be expounded on to this extent. Throughout the book, we are inundated with paragraphs and whole pages reiterating the "Grasshopper vs. Ant" philosophy. OK, we get it!

One extremely cheesy portion, toward the end of the book, where the protagonist decides to go have a fistfight with the Captain in the US army who is cast as a minor personality in the camp of the antagonists, was completely over the top (or bottom, whatever). Jarred me badly, and didn't add anything to the story. The term "self-aggrandizing" comes to mind.

The dialogue and narrative are much too simplified, as well. It almost seems as if the author has aimed this at middle schoolers, and is making sure it's couched in terms that simpletons can understand.

Having said all this, I will at least look at further efforts on the part of Dr. Foster. If he's reading this review, I would hope that he will take it in the spirit it was intended. Just trying to be helpful.

This is very thought provoking and realistic novel which has a story line that is way too close to reality! I enjoy reading novels about the "End of The World as We Know It" and this author has come up with an excellent scenario that takes place in north Mississippi. He has done his home work on political reality and what our future might look like if we aren't prepared. I highly recommend this to all and can not wait for the next book! Great read........

This book is an excellent example of where our country is headed! Most of the events in the book could very easily happen in the near future. As a medical professional, it was nice to read something that put the medical field into perspective in the events. Does it have a lot of political soapbox writing-yes. However, consider it author liberties. If you don't like it, write your own book! Is it the most grammatically correct book-no. But for a first time author, it was very good. It was nice to have a medical professional or two be the heroes in a book. Most of the time, if they are in a book, it's unbelievable garbage, but Dr. Foster has made this believable in what could/would happen because he is a surgeon. Great job, Doc!

All in all, I really enjoyed this book. I thought the medical descriptions ran a little long and it all worked out just a little too well. But if you worry about what it's going to come down to in America this is an amazing book. Not end times and (fortunately) no zombies which are so popular with a lot of end time writers these days. Just a great story about the breakdown of society at the hands of jihadists who wreck all major cities in this country and encourage all the "takers" to loot, rob and murder innocent people. It's the takers against the working middle class who go to work every day and pay the taxes that the liberal government use to buy votes from the takers by giving them even more handouts. Hmmmm.....sound VERY familiar? Definitely gives you something to think about. When is the American public going to wake up and realize the current administration is slowly removing our rights via executive order which is totally unconstitutional????

I have read over 20 post Collapse type books and this is by far one of the best out there. I like the expertise an actual doctor can bring to a story. Even though the author may get on his political soapbox too often for some, I liked what he had to say and he said it very well. The book could have used a good proofreader but nothing too serious. I really got hooked on the characters and story. I Sincerely HOPE the author writes a sequel. I HIGHLY Recommend this novel. It was a Very Compelling read. Bravo Mike!!!

I can just picture the author, Mike, just telling someone (again) how great he was, so the listener tells him he should write a book.
Yes, the guy knows about surgical/medical stuff, but I don't think the reader is looking for a PBS special on surgical technique and paraphernalia. The author has the large ego that may be needed for great surgery, but in the book he just comes off as arrogant and smug. In the world described, that ego would most likely get you killed.

There were good elements of the book, but Dr. Mike's ego is never far away.

Another good book that shows where America is headed if things don't change. The author does a good job of speculating of how things might be. This book equals "Patriots" in good story telling.
