Ms. Hall projects the characters and their mindset in a common sense and logical way. The characters are portrayed as "being human", in that; they argue, debate, discuss and even throw their own little tantrums when they disagree with certain plans of action. This portrayal lends credence and realism to the story line and depicts just how a group of people would need to 'get along' and work together in dire circumstances in which they find themselves.
Again, there is valid and logical planning incorporated into this story. Ideas pertaining to the construction of shelters and the use of materials was quite ingenius...something I had never thought of, but are in my long term planning mindset now. Yep...swiped those ideas right into my own notebook, I did.
I was glad to see Sarge, Tinker, Ingram and the crew being brought back into the story. That was a nice surprise and did a lot to enhance the security of the group. Three new characters are introduced also, providing insight to the fact that there is still other people out there who are friendly and willing to help. Ahhhh...but then, there is the "Lewis Gang." Nope, not going to say anything more. You'll just have to read this sequel to find out what happens.
This story ends with an opening of a possible continuation; however, if Ms. Hall decides to leave it where this one ended, that would be fine too. It won't leave the reader with a stalled thought of "what next." There is no cliff hanger...but enough to leave a satisfied smile on the face of the reader.
I'll definately keep Ms. Hall in my listings of authors to watch for in the future. Her writings are intriguing, entertaining and informative, with a vast knowledge base of outdoor living and survival based on common sense and logic.
As best as I can tell, the point of the story is to get the survivors from their first "unsafe" settlement, to a "safe" interior settlement. Unsafe and safe being dictated by the aliens. The survivors agree to help an old woman save a library. And they run into a bad guy. A group of soldiers (from book 1) save the group. The old woman makes an impassioned plea, resulting in what I think was meant to be a shocker of a twist, but had me thinking "Give me a break." The survivors find a suitable piece of land thanks to a nomad who for some reason has decided to help the survivors even though she doesn't want to be a part of their group. The soldiers give the land a thumbs up because it's defendable.
I don't want to discourage this writer. As I said in the beginning, I thought the first book was good, even though I thought the author needed to do more research on survival skills. My main complaint about this book isn't the writing, it's the subject matter. The author tried to spice up a travelogue. I thought the book was going along just fine until the bad guy was introduced. That's the part I find silly.
Good sequel. Most sequels are annoying often rehashing so much of the preceding book it becomes a distraction. Ms Hall does not treat us like illiterate idiots. (Thanks!) There is a summary of the preceding book, but only enough to get one on track.
Yes, this could be a good introduction to prepping or just keeping oneself in order. The need for a healthy community in an apocalypse is an absolute necessity. The characters were wise in their choices and then stood by them.
I enjoyed the billboard idea very much!!! :)
Thank you Ms. Hall.
The characters develop well over time, and there were enough twists and turns to keep me engrossed until the end. Very nicely written and edited too. I like Hall's voice in general, and the subtle snippets of humor in particular.
