The author has written an interesting investigation of preparation for loss of our electrical infrastructure laced with a family relationship novel. The premise is good as is much of the character development. Technical descriptions are inaccurate in a couple cases. Discussion of EMP effect is not totally correct, in my experience....batteries are not affected by EMP. As with the Carrington Event of the 1800s a solar E MP would cause damage to infrastructure connected to the grid, much like that experienced by lightening. However autos and aircraft are insulated from ground and many would survive an EMP.
Further, the author des cusses a transceiver atop the Ham Radio tower. The ham transceiver is located on the ground. The Antenna sits atop the tower. Furthermore, High Frequency Ham Radio can connect around the world by bouncing radio Frequency signals off atmospheric layers, NOT off orbiting Satellites as the author describes. Description of Farraday boxes was good, as was the idea as listed for preparation of the retreat.
It was a fun read and I look forward to the next installment.
This book moved along pretty well but - most of the issues (SPOILER ALERT) (or I should say things that would be real issues for everyone else) seemed to smooth themselves out pretty easy (on there own). (ex wife for example). Reality being most of us would have left our ex's behind. Its a new world -- and reality (no matter how pretty a picture he paints their relationship) she would have needed to be left behind. Things just worked them self's out too easy..I would still like to peek back in on them a year from now and see what's worked and what direction they are heading. (looking for more people? Staying isolated? Are those dam eggs still good?! lol)
