Mr. Mann would do good by getting an editor to catch some of the mis-used words. Some words being used were not the right words. A good proof read would have caught this. Sentence structure could be modified a bit for an easier flow, instead of short sentences, phrases and the over use of commas.
The meat of the story is set right away with the mystery of Eric's long time friend confronting him and expressing a need to 'bug out.' From there, for me anyway, it was a page turner. I wondered why the author had Eric do some of the things he did, and there are situations in the story where I may have made different decisions based on what was occurring, but then, I'm not going to try and second guess the author's mindset. Under the circumstances that the main character found himself in, I believe the author had Eric make the right decisions, although those decisions cost him. However, had he not made certain decisions, he would have been facing many threats alone...which would have not been good for him.
Overall, I thought this was a well thought out novel with a story line that kept me interested and looking forward to what was going to happen next. Eric is not depicted as a Special Forces type, nor is he portrayed as a radical prepper that has everything one could think of. He is portrayed as a down to earth guy with emotions toward good and an attitude toward that which is evil / bad.
I'm looking forward to "Eagle One", the second book of this series.
Minor characters are more well drawn than the protagonist, but Del is so marvelous, I'm not complaining. Marco and his wife and son are left in limbo, so I fully expect them to reappear in Book Two. The starving wife of a Navy man stationed in a sub also needs to make a comeback. Jim the news broadcaster too, please,though he looks to be in pretty bad shape.
The advent of Major Layton adds a lot of suspense and horror to this story. Not a fan of the thriller genre, I sped through a lot of the action scenes and the violence. Fans of the genre will find much to love here.
Del and his ham radio, Ed Porter and his train books - these two characters alone are worth the price of admission. Did I mention this would make a great movie?
I'd like to have known the protagonist better. Eric Fletcher is such a loner, he has no backstory of girlfriends or family history, no love interest by the end of Book One, and not much outside of his survival skills and work ethic to present a complex, fully developed character. I cannot imagine a man his age staking out a stronghold in the wilderness for what may be two lonely years or more, and he has nobody he absolutely must bring with him. Maybe future books in the series will flesh him out more. For now, and for the thriller genre, he's a strong hero.
Noah Mann's critical thinking skills are unmatched, his writing is superb, and his ability to tell a story is excellent.
Are the characters flawed and sometimes seemingly dimwitted? Absolutely! But what would the story be if everything went smoothly? There simply would not be a story at all.
I highly recommend this unique perspective on PA fiction. It will keep you interested while making you think at the same time.
