Bought the book because Wyoming is my favorite place on earth. The area familiarity turned out to be the tip of the iceberg, though, as the author touched on a very basic theme,"What the hell has happened to people?". Especially so, his depiction of the young people under crisis...they haven't a clue. Society is teaching youth about how to make money, be successful NOW....but NOT how to be decent human beings. Enter our hero, Manliness incarnate, Jack. He defines the issues today, teaches needy youngsters how to be people with humanity, defends without apology, and yet knows he's in the vast minority. Wyoming is their collective saving grace.

Thought it was overall, a terrific read. Compared to many of the offerings of "What's around the corner" books, thought it a hair preachy....but it left me thinking about it days after finishing it, and concluded, "preaching", at least about the lack of humanity and ethics today, is exactly what's needed. Loved it. And am feeling terribly saddened by the "spot-on" analysis of the uncontrolled issues of today. We need a thousand more "Jacks".

I love survival books, but most seem pretty negative, this one leaves you feeling positive about a collapse. Of course it is set in Wyoming, where there are a lot less people, and the people are very self reliant, so it may be one of the few places where a complete collapse would not be too bad. The abundance of horses, livestock and guns does not hurt either. Funny thing is.... if you have ever been to wyoming, this story actualy does seem feasable. It is really easy to read, I read 100 pages a day until it was finished, I could not put it down.

This is one of the best post-apocalyptic stories that I have read - and I've read lots of them. What an exceptional tale!

For me it didn't hurt that it took place in an area I'm familiar with and love in Wyoming. It rang so true. I can see Wyoming residents handling a TEOTWAWKI event in ways described in the book. There's a lot of strong, self-reliant people in Wyoming - with lots of guns and horses.

I liked that this wasn't just a disaster novel but a character study as well. Good vs. evil, strong vs. weak, principled vs. unprincipled.

The characters were well drawn and believable. The dialogue rang very true and read smoothly. There were strong women characters as well as strong men.

I thought the antagonist was portrayed clearly with motivation that was understandable, if not praiseworthy. I did think some of his acts were reprehensible and not all needed to be included in the story to get the point across.

I loved the protagonist - a man of morals and integrity, willing to stand up for what he believed in.

There were some minor editing issues but none that distracted me from the story too much. This is a long novel - over six hundred pages - but it flew by as I was reading it and I didn't want it to end. I would love to read a sequel to this book.

West of Sheridan is a well-written, detailed description of life without the luxuries that we are used to in today's society. Intertwined into this description are the stories of two men, of different generations and different morals and how they deal with the sudden change and the challenges that are brought with it. The author makes the reader feel as if they can be standing in the room beside each character, witnessing every action and hearing every thought.
The dynamic relationships that form throughout the story are complex, unpredictable and absolutely compelling. For lack of a better phrase...this book is a real page-turner. The first chapter begins the addiction and every subsequent chapter only makes it harder to put down.
West of Sheridan left me with the impression that the old west never really died and that there are still heroes out there. And not only are there heroes, there are villians too. I got the chance to be part of each end of the spectrum through this novel. I can safely say that there is not another book out there today that is fit for comparison. I am thoroughly impressed and waiting very impatiently for another book from Dean Ross!

Though this book takes a look at what might happen in an uncertain future after a massive solar event, the themes are old and familiar ones from some of my favorite Westerns. This is not a criticism, as these ideas about right and wrong, and the roads that lead to such decisions, are as revelant today as ever. I will leave the description fo the plot to others, who have done a great job in laying out the bones of the story, but I have to say that the protagonist Jack is very finely drawn and is intensely sympathetic and human in his responses. He makes the book work, as a role model and mentor to his young charges both by his words and deeds. This book is an excellent adventure romp in Wyoming in an unexpected future, but it is also, on another level, about the critical choices we make and how those choices can impact the rest of our lives. This book stuck in my head for days after I finished it.

A little short on technical accuracy (about solar flares) but a very entertaining read. Essentially, this is a story about good and evil set in a post-apocolyptic world after a massive solar flare. The evil character is Mark and the good guy is Jack. But, even Mark has some redeeming qualities but ultimately surrenders to evil. At times I even found myself liking Mark but always suspecting that he was not a good person. More accurately (perhaps) he is a good person who made some bad decisions much earlier that led to his eventual downfall. Jack is pretty much good through and through.

I think that this is this writer's first fiction work and, if so, I was truely impressed and found myself hoping for a sequel.
