The characters are very well developed and the story is very detailed.

The dialogue is very good, and the female characters are as well developed as the males.

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.

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".

Loved the story line, and insight into how different people deal with the harsh reality of the world as we know it changing suddenly. Almost didn't finish the book due to the amount of explicit sexual situations and the horrible cursing. Otherwise, the plot was good, and the writing and editing were well done. Wouldn't mind a sequel but I'm afraid the amount of bad language and sex would be the same, so I probably won't go there.

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.

.....but it lacked some elements for me that would have made it a four star or five.

Don't get me wrong, this is a very well written book with very interesting characters and some good character development with both good and bad results.

This is one of those books that YOU could give it 5 stars and there would be nothing wrong with that as opposed to my three. Myself personally in my apocalypse books they have to have certain elements, these are of course the survival stage but then also a lot more reconstruction with political aspects as well.

This book for me was to localised, it concentrated on a small group of people and their journey to Sheridan telling also in short bites the stories of the various people they meet and this was very well done, however I would have liked more of the reconstruction phase (towns grouping together then perhaps a new state a bit like the 'Holding their own series') and some of whats going on politically, this would have made it a 5 for me.

Would I recommend it, Yes if you like a good PA survival story but if you want a bit more than just a very localised story then you maybe feel left wanting like I did.

I read the book in 3 days. The story line is fairly predictable with good vs. evil. The use of profanity is excessive. I think the writer struggled with conveying complex feelings and relies on the use of profanity instead of skill to develop shock in the story. My $.02.

If you want a romance novel based on somewhat of a PA western, mix in some soft porn and you'll have this novel. I picked it up and down a few times but just couldn't quite finish it. Don't recomend it. I gave it three stars just because of one redeaming character that has good knowledge of horses.
