Top customer reviews
I did enjoy the book but don't know that I would continue the series. There were so many things in this book that could at least make someone stop and consider. Given the date when it was written it was a little un-nerving just how plausible the events of the story could come to pass.
Anyone choosing to read this please don't get too frustrated with the over abundance of detail.. It can add to the realism of the story.
In the end I would recommend the book
This book came highly recomended and the premise and story line made my understand th reason for the high recommendations. Unfortunately the author believes his way is the only way and that is played out in the character development as characters who don't live by his views are killed off and the characters who do just survive with no issues.
Also, product placement is worse in this book than most hollywood blockbusters. I was surprised hyperlinks weren't part of the reading experience.
In a true TEOTWAWI scenario, there are going to be situations that no one thought of and I wish the storyline told that has well.
On the upside those who like his blog and this type of book will probably be interested in the book but not likely entertained. For that you should read Lights Out. I found the intellectual process of what would or would not happen in a grid down situation both on an individual level and corporate scale provocative but I failed to find the 'novel' entertaining. I doubt I will read the rest of his books that are fiction but would love so see his nonfiction.
This book is designed for the Survivalist or Prepper who wants to endure TEOTWAWKI. (Look up the definition on internet). The book is excessively detailed and reads like a person describing their activities second by second. Likewise, the book becomes tiresome after the first three chapters.
The information presented in the book is detailed enough to allow readers to know what brand of Sleeping Bags to purchase and specific gun/ammunition (down to model numbers!) one should acquire before TEOTWAWKI. The book even reveals how law enforcement officers "cock" their front tires during a routine traffic stop to request backup help from any passing law enforcement officers from any jurisdiction. Information on how to remove fingerprints from surfaces using WD-40 lubricant spray is also interesting.
Numerous use of Biblical scripture is used by the Christian, Jewish, and Atheist characters of the book.
The book could be a lot better if there were less attention to the excessive equipment details.
