I do recommend this book especially if you are into post apocalyptic reads.
I don't like to give stories away in my reviews but since this one doesn't have any other reviews yet for you to get more info if you so choose, I'll give you a little.
It's a story about a young man, freshly out of school working for the county as a reclamation employee. His duty is to go out into the post apocalyptic county and survey old rural subdivisions to look into the potential of turning them back into productive farms. His first assignment was no accidental assignment. He stumbles into what appears to be a nearly vacant subdivision only to find out later that a hidden, well managed post apocalyptic society already exist for one small community.
The story is mostly a recount from a middle aged gentleman from the community that was a major player in the development of the community ... from the time the "event" happened when he was just a kid to the development of the community which it is today.
Once again, its a nice little story and I enjoyed it a lot. I wished it was longer for sure but there might be a sequel, just need to check into it. If so, I will for sure get it.
It's not an action, shoot 'em up type apocalyptic book but rather a post apocalypse book on the rebuilding. Sure there is danger that exist, guns, farming and all that but no shoot 'em up events.
I read all apocalyptic books I can and although this was a little different because there wasn't any "in the moment" SHTF events, I thought it was great.
You can read it in an evening. Probably 3 or 4 hours for me and I am not a fast reader. Worth the .99 cents and maybe even a couple bucks to me but I would have been disappointed to have paid $5 for it.
(I originally gave this a 4 star rating but have edited my review because I didn't understand that it was a novella and counted off a star because it was short. I now understand this and I really love this entire series and its well worth the 5 star in my opinion)
The author sets you into a futuristic (and believable) outlook of America several decades after a nuclear destruction of organized society, with frequent flashbacks / narrations of what happened immediately after to the surviving families. I could actually visualize the various scenes and situations, and found myself wondering "what if" or "what would I do" while reading not only this one, but the other stories in the series. The author does a good job of wetting your tastebuds and wanting a little more at the conclusion of the story - hence, let's go purchase book 2 of the series. Overall, the series is very good and I highly recommend it.
I will point out I did read all ten of the stories of the series and, while good, it was a little annoying to having just strapped myself in to read for a while then finding the various stories ended and I had to go buy another. Mr. Perkins, if you are reading this review I would encourage you to put all ten stories into one edition and raise the price - your readers will thank you for it (and spend less money) while you will make more off of the 70% royalty!
