Tom Abrahams knows how to sling words together to keep us thumbing our Kindle pages. This is a very strong, fast paced thriller. His vision of a post holocaust hell world holds up very well. This isn't because he invents such innovative plagues or space invaders but because he understands the darker side of human nature all too well. When he describes the brutal social structure of the post collapse world, we understand and believe it. It isn't pretty.
Mr. Abrahams spent years as a journalist covering tragic situations all over the globe. This no doubt gave him a certain perspective into the human condition.
This is the first in a series with Battle in the new and not improved future world. Good.
In short: This book has an interesting take on the post-apocalypse and what it means - and indeed, what it takes - to survive it. "Home" is lacking in a few areas, however this should not put you off reading it and forming your own opinion, nor purchasing the followups "Canyon" and "Wall" to see how it all progresses. Indeed, "Home" is perhaps a book that should be viewed as a sum of one whole, not an individual story. Take from that what you will.
I was initially a little worried about the fairly typical retired-military-survivalist nature of the main character (typical, at least, for post-apocalyptic books). I feel like I've read about that guy in at least twenty books by now. He loves his guns, he kicks everybody's ass, he stays decent while others slide into anarchy... bleh. But this tale manages to take that typical character and mold him into something really interesting.
During the course of the book, watching Marcusa Battle (awesome name, by the way) evolve from a troubled loner into something that reminds me a little of Stephen King's Gunslinger, and a little of Clint Eastwood in Pale RIder, is a really interesting process.
The world is an interesting speculation on what a depopulated American West would look like, the action is fun, the characters are believable. I'll look forward to continuing the series.
I'm on the second book,and while I recommend them for most, for former operators like me, it us embarrassing. Nobody with the "training" would be this stupid. Battle acts like a buck private that just got stiffed by a hooker.
And leaving a cache of weapons and ammo without hiding it for later? Holy cow!
Hello, acting on revenge, hell bent for leather usually leaves you dead. Usually.
Anyone who has been there knows this.
The story centers on a man grieved and alone who upon chance encounter gets the opportunity to restart his life. The steady rate at which the drama unfolds keeps the reader or listener anticipating the next phase in the story.
Highly recommended for post apocalyptic fiction fans.
