BTW, the author had me at book description of "Grace Hardwick’s dad is a science fiction writer who makes his living destroying the world." Basically, the author explores what happens when your daughter is 600 miles away from home at college when the USA turns upside down. How does she make it home ?
And a friend of mine says this about Franklin Horton's books, "If I were to make one substantive criticism of Franklin’s work, it would be from personal preference. His dystopian novels are dystopic in spades. They can be painful to read. Kind of like a Russian comedy: at the end, everyone dies horribly. Franklin does not have a very high opinion of humanity in general. Even most of his protagonists are not very nice people. But Franklin is, first and foremost, a story-teller. His writing makes you want to keep turning pages."
I grew up in the country, working on a small farm, playing in the creek, and running wild through the woods. Besides that, I love reading fantasy books. So it's no surprise that I often think about how I'd handle a situation without modern convenances like a stove or running water. So I've always liked watching survival shows and learning how to do new things, especially from a primitive starting point, like how to I catch a cook food when all I have is a rock, or cooking a meal without using prepackaged parts.
One thing I love about this series is that it feels like it gives all of those interests a direction and purpose. I see these people using skills they've worked hard on and utilizing them to stay safe and healthy.
I also like all the things the series talks about that you might not think about. It's inspired me to be smarter in my life and to be better prepared. For instance, I usually run a gas tank dry. Now I'll refill when I hit half a tank. I was building a Get-home-bag before reading this series, but I'll be making some changes.
I'm sure no one who is redoing this series thinks prepping is a bad idea, but if you hear someone acting like it's silly, take the time to mention that it doesn't have to be a nation wide attack. Simply having water, blankets, and an extra jacket can prevent a winter time car stranding from being deadly to being uncomfortable. There are thousands of scenarios where a small amount of forethought and planning can save your life and just make you generally more comfortable. These books are a great resource to help people understand why you need a certain mindset.
As far as negatives to the series, there aren't many and it may just be me. One isn't really a negative, but I'd like to see what'll happens with these characters next. Again, it's not necessarily a negative. The author may plan to write more. It also may be that he plans to leave it up to the readers imagination. I'd really like to know when everything starts to get back to normal and who makes it.
My second issue is how the characters sometimes react too calmly. It seems to me that while they have trained and should be more mentally prepared than the average person, I think they would have more of a psychological reaction to actually seeing and committing the acts they do. That's just how it seems to me.
In the end, I love all of them and want to see more from this author. I highly recommend all of them. I couldn't put them down and finished each in a day.
