Anyway...I suffered my way through this book, hoping for a decent ending. Nope - the author took the easy way out. It was as if he got bored writing the book and didn't want to write the latter middle 1/4th of their journey, so he gave them a certain technological advantage (think flight) that allowed them to skip the west coast and go straight to their goal. WTF!?!?!? There was so much detail of their travels between their starting point and NM/AZ....and then he SPEEDS them off to the ocean. Yeah...no.
And don't get me started on the train wreck that the author makes out of the military - ours and theirs. There were points on the book where I stopped reading just to say to myself, "WTF? A military man would NEVER do/say that!" And how is it that so many people and businesses have bunkers under their houses!?!?!? And not just concrete holes in the ground but huge structures with all the latest tech in it., including an under water escape hatch And the things and tech they found in every-day sporting goods stores was unrealistic.
All in all, I was highly disappointed in this book. Though the story idea was fabulous, Mr. Hayes' poor writing skills made this book dry, boring, and emotionless. He mIght want to reinvest any profits from these books into some good writing classes.
Seldom do I stay up past bedtime to read a book. This one grabbed me by the back of my shirt and took me on an exhilarating ride through North America. Hopefully, a North America that won't come to pass. I found it close to impossible to put this book down. It was action packed, but also (mostly) realistic. The good guys didn't take 120 bullets to the body and keep going. Some key characters died, people lived, loved, laughed and lost. I don't like reviews that tiresomely give away the plot (yawn), so if you like survival fiction, this is one of the best.
The Author had this book professionally edited and it shows. He's a very good writer - no editor can make a bad writer good, but missing were the spelling and grammatical errors found in many digital books. Unlike many digital books, this is a full feature length book. Minor cliffhanger at the end, but this is a stand alone book with a strong beginning, middle and realistic ending, which is a delightful change from the 12-book series that suck a person in, but by the time the next book in the series rolls around, we need a refresher course.
Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone that likes action adventure novels. There was very little filler fluff that some authors use to get the page count up. Except for a few back stories, this was action all the way. In that regard, it was a well-written story. Although it is the first in a series, you can read it as a stand-alone book. The ending was satisfactory enough but intriguing enough to want to read the next is the series.
Sometimes I do not like reading a series because each book leaves you a little unfulfilled. You read the whole book and never get closure. This book had some closure but not complete closure. You will need to continue the series to see how everything plays out. But, you can stop with this first book and not feel like you are left hanging.
I enjoyed this book and recommend it.
