Wash’s voice softened. “I’m glad you choose (chose, have chosen) to come with us. Things aren’t easy here but your changes (chances) of surviving are higher."

The storyline is enjoyable, but the lack of editing is simply unacceptable. Hire an editor, and the book could easily earn a 4-5 star rating.
Although fairly short and not getting into the details as to what exactly The Event is, the story of a father fighting for redemption with his family and then having to pick up the mantle of father - leading his family away from that which was familiar into a world turned upside down.... just, wow.
There are moments in which, no matter how much of a manly man I think I am, I could very well have reacted just the same as Grant (the main character). The sheer terror of trying to keep your family safe in a situation that is completely alien by today's standards... I found myself getting pretty worked up at times.
I recommend giving this a read and anxiously await to start reading the second book.
Loved it! It was nice to see a book that is not about zombies or cannibalism - it seems to be more of a character based driven plot while it focuses on a struggling family that is just trying to survive, heal old emotional wounds and just stay alive. So far, there are 4 of these books... read them... it is worth it. Again... yes there are typos and grammar errors and a few mangled sentences... you can do it, you can look past it and immerse yourself in the story.
The plot revolves around two brothers and their little sister. The first book opens with the older brother being a teenager, the sister seven-years-old, and the other brother in the middle.
These children find themselves in a world that has collapsed on all levels--no government, food, shelter. T. A. forms these characters throughout the book by the choices they make where the old beliefs and morals no longer seem pertinent and are not pertinent to the rapists, robbers, murderers, and other opportunists who start seizing control of what is left of the U. S.
Both sides of moral dilemmas are constantly arising, giving all the players numerous changes to choose their next act from their inner core.
This can be read by teens and everyone older as well. I read each book without stopping as the siblings live against such a frightening backdrop, I was compelled to faithfully follow them through every circumstance.
Highly readable, nail-chewing scenarios, increasing investment in each character, intense subject matter, and the opportunity to examine my own character--all of these elements and more contribute to this being a series worth reading.
The two cons are the price is high for the short duration of each book and some of them aren't edited well. The pros are the books are engaging, the plot is plausible, the characters are engaging; and it all adds up to good entertainment. Definitely recommend.
Have a good day, everyone.
