Entertaining and thought provoking,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TEOTWAWKI: Beacon's Story (Kindle Edition)
This book deals with The End Of The World As We Know It (TEOTWAWKI), and Beacon is our guide through the last days of our civilization and what rises in its place. Beacon is pragmatic and not as cynical as he would like others to think, and his story is that of a nation emerging from some (unrevealed) catastrophe. The story reminds me of the works of John Wesley, Rawles, in that the author teaches as well as entertains, but the instruction is much more subtle than Mr. Rawles and his Ayn Randian view of the world to come. This book is written with the preparedness community in mind, what used to be referred to as "survivalists" until that term came to be misused, but anyone who enjoys a good adventure story with lots of action and suspense should get a charge out of this offering from "Desert Dave".
In short, I found this book to be intelligent, well researched and scary because the author sure knows what he is writing about here. I recommend bookmarking the chapter dealing with the difference between WTSHTF and TEOTWAWKI and "bugging in" versus "bugging out". If you don't know what those terms mean, you should.
NOTE: One of the other reviewers made a completely uncalled-for attack on the author, having to do with the presence of young women "encountered" by Beacon in the story. I am not sure what book that reviewer read, but it was not this one. Rest assured that Beacon acts the gentleman and is a hero in the Roy Rogers vein (not quite singing to his horse around the campfire, but you get the idea). My only reason to mention this is so any potential readers in the future are not unfairly dissuaded from picking up this title.

NOTE-there was no "uncalled for attack" on my part about anything. I made an observation about a book. For others who view this comment(an excerpt taken from earlier portion of story------ "It was a girl about seventeen dressed from head to toe in MultiCam........) fast forward to the latter part of the story, "Beacon and Gail named their first son Bill"). This, is the same about? seveteen year old young girl in previous quote. So yes, this is indeed the book I read and the book I created feedback for. Folks, make your own decisions. This is simply my opinion.

Yes. I agree you are entitled to your opinion. However, the "girl in the Multicam" and Gail are two different characters. You might want to go back and check your "facts". I did.
