At first, I was a bit put off by the crass humor and the ridiculous situations. The two Post Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors, Logan and Jerry, are working against each other, going from walled town to walled town, offering their services of protection.
The towns, all a variation of 'New Hope', either accept the P.A.N.W.s offer or not. The officials of the latest New Hope act like three-year-old children, squabbling in a pre-school playground. This adds to the humor but at this point, it's still unclear where this story is headed.
I have to admit that I almost put this book away in favor of something else. But... then the SANd showed up (Super Smart Bears). Oh, yeah! I had to find out where this was heading. You see, this land was the victim of a terror attack consisting of nuclear and chemical warfare, causing several varieties of mutants to wander through the wasteland; Super Smart Bears being one of them.
Suddenly, this tale started to grab my attention and kept me reading through to the end. I'm very glad that I hung in there and finished this book. Truly, it's not Hemmingway or Steinbeck but rather along the lines of Douglass Adams (as others have mentioned). The humor is wry and well placed. You have to be aware of the cultural references here and there are quite a few,so watch out!
I doubt if I'll buy the sequels but this is a nice stand-alone story leading to a nice ending, so don't worry about the sequels that are peddled. It's not necessary to buy them if you don't want to.
In the end, I enjoyed this story as much for the crazy plot as for the humor. It's a fun read, you should give it a try.
What do you do when you are trapped in a fall out shelter under a library at the end of the world? Read...everything....if you can ignore the frantic pounding of some poor soul trying to get in.
So, yeah...you read...everything that might be helpful after an apocalypse. Then, you set out to sell your services to those in need.
Mad Max meets every day helpful Guy in a post apocalyptic world that isn't quite what everyone thought it would be. Oh, there's bandits and cutthroats aplenty...and the occasional mutant but the world is still around and in need of someone with a lot of book learning and more than a little common sense.
It's just another day on planet earth.
I really enjoyed the entire series. The author's commentary on things is reminiscent of Terry Pratchett and the word play and scenario twists are fun. It's a quick read but well worth it. Buy the set on Kindle...you won't regret it.
The post apocalyptic world had a few interesting insights but was in general an unbelievable melange of unlikely and Mad Max violent. The romance was unbelievable and the attempt at making the women strong and independent just painted them as unnecessarily insulting, confrontational, and rude, even in life threatening circumstances. Likewise the hero vacillated between easily pushed around and Indiana Jones. One or two surprise plot twists, which is why it's up to a two star rating.
Bottom line, I enjoyed it so much I immediately ordered three more volumes in the series and am anxiously looking forward to them. It not only reads a good post apoc story, in the genre of Mad Max, but is also a delightful tongue in cheek satire at times on our current society, which made me chuckle more than once.
I really liked it and recommend it if post apoc is in your interest, especially with a flavor of Mad Max.

All elements I look for in a good book and I downloaded the rest as soon as I finished this one.
I jumped straight into book 2.
Slow to start but with a couple of lovely twists worth taking a chance on.
I bought it on a whim, and I was very surprised.
Almost every page brings a new laugh, and each and every character is well rounded and brought to life in these pages.
Post apocalypse spoof.
