The book is mostly about what/how/where/why to do prepardness by how these people do it and sometimes by how the people they meet don't do it. I've read tons of this kind of book and I like this one the best about this aspect. It was neither listing everything nor brushed over too much.
The ending.... just stops. I would like it much better with either one more chapter or one or two less chapters and either way I would still have liked to read the next one. We are warned that it is the first of three books that make up the story so I didn't consider that when giving stars.
SPOILER ALERT FOR THE REST of this...
For the author since you specifically asked and I don't know how else to communicate with you: hens are "biddies" not "bitties", I saw an occasional minor typo (a word twice, "she" instead of "the", missed a capitalization of a name, a few more) but I didn't keep track of where, sorry.

The logistics of the quantity of animals and feed stored in those manmade excavations, up to and including 250 tons of animal grain... more outlandish fantasy. That's 50,000 lbs, equal to 1,000 50-lb. bags. Just so unlikely, and there's a lot of similar things in there. I was often thinking "yeah, right".
How did they run the stove pipes for the two Franklin stoves from back in the cave rooms? And why, after all their careful research on everything else, did they pick a stove that is notorious for being inefficient?
1,000 fish in an 800-gallon tank? Ummm.... right. Minnows? We have an 800-gallon storage tank for our rainwater collection system. There's no way I could pile that many fish into it, let alone have room for them to live and move in there.
And most of all, after all the many months of prepping, would any of them, knowing the day and the hour of the impact, stay behind in Tucson?Read more ›
As for a few things that I enjoyed: I enjoyed the various characters; the problem is they all sounded the same. Even the teenagers sounded like adults, there was even a point that the seven year old girl sounded like an adult. My suggestion to the author would be to make each family unique entities that bring their own special talents to the group. This could have been done by going into more detail into the history of how these families met, why they formed this group, why they start planning for TEOTWAWKI?
I was also glad that the author did not delve into the issue of the guns (the various types, calibers, type of ammunition) for me this gets monotonous. Instead the focus is on the food, animals, and planting.
Now for a couple of things that kind of rubbed me wrong: the government was cast in a bad light for apparently keeping this secret (to me it almost felt like the author had a problem with the government and this was bleeding through). Honestly I wouldn't be surprised; after all they wouldn't want to start panic until they were prepared to deal with it. What surprised me though, was that after the asteroid went public there was no mention if martial law was declared. This is something I would have expected. Did they step in to stop price gouging? They didn't have any problems with hoarding?
The other problem is that there is very little description of the emotions the characters would have experienced.Read more ›
