Note 2: This review is for all 4 books in the New Homefront series (and the same review in all 4 book reviews) because I didn't stop to review after reading each one, I just immediately started the next one.
This is a great series, with characters that are well developed and believable. From what I remember, there were very few spelling errors or grammar errors (although these may be just stylistic).
The author has put a lot of thought and effort into the what, why and how of everything discussed in the books.
The story line is quite good, and believable (even if there are a couple of "boy that was lucky" situations). While the outcomes of most of the situations in the books could very well happen in the way the author portrayed them, I could also see some of the outcomes happening much differently. This is not to take away from the books, but rather, in my opinion, a good thing because it makes you think about what is happening and why it is happening the way it is, and what the consequences may be down the road.
The books cover a wide variety of locations and methods of traveling that I have not seen in other books, and each one seems realistic (I don't have experience with some of them so I don't know technically if it correct, but it appears that it would be) and is detailed in a manner that not only shows the authors knowledge of each, but also gives some good detailed information for those that want it.
I will say that book 1 especially and book 2 to a lesser extent are somewhat "slow" due to the time spent on details and character development, but that is not a knock on the books and does not take away from them in any way. I think this is important to point out because some people may be turned off by this and stop reading, but the story does pick up and is definately worth reading.
I have read many series where after 1 or 2 books, the story becomes "same problems - different day" and are basically a rehash of the same type of situations that were in earlier books with a different series of characters. That is NOT the case with these books. As the series progresses, the characters face new challenges and take on different tasks as would be expected over a period of time.
Also, each book completes the story in that book and has a "hook" for the next book, but does not leave the story of the current book unfinished.
Another thing that I enjoyed with this series is there are scenarios that make you think. Some are "would I do it that way", but some are more of a "moral" question of "would I really risk it" or "is the risk worth it" type of situation that makes you question how you would react to the same situation given the same or similar circumstances.
The books in this series are interesting from the point that you can learn a lot from them by reading them slowly and taking notes of things like items in BOBs or things needed in a SHTF scenario, etc. Or you can read the books as a quick read by skimming over the specific item/instructional details without losing the story. For me there were a couple of times in books 1 and 2 where the details kind of interfered with the story, but not to the extent that many of the books in this genre do.
Overall I would recommend the series to anyone who enjoys Post Apoc fiction, and especially to those that want a more thought provoking series, or who want more details on the what could be needed and how to manage in the Post Apoc world.
He points out that in any organization, there will probably be moles, working for the enemy. As the Russians say, "Smert Spionem" (death to spies).
Other than that, it is exciting and author brings out the plausible future of an economic collapse, based on current conditions.
I could not stop reading into the evening and by the time I finished, I knew that I would need to start at the beginning of The Homefront series again. I loved it, felt it and have recommended this to all of my family and friends. Mr. Bird has a gift! I look forward to more from him!
