The jist has the USA and China led by morons that make current political candidates seem like an all knowing god. No person can have such a low iq and survive, they'd die while trying to figure out how to breathe. The Canadian and British are the only ones who can think, and one man saves the majority due to investing in gold. The pace is slower than molasses in January. Some of the information regarding radiation fallout is right, however, unless every nation "salted" all their bombs to increase exposure the timeline falls apart.
Off you wish a story about a modern medieval society living in a Castle and surrounding towns, you'll be pleased.
The lack of internal consistency, misrepresentation of known effects of radiation and the whole premise that it's us against them leaves me wanting my time back.
The book is a very well written and researched book for a new author. I found the start of the book a bit low, it could have been made more compelling. However tying fiscal deficits, dollar debasement, return of gold standards with plausible military scenarios and survivalism was brilliantly done. The book is fun to read, intense and once you get engaged almost impossible not to finish it. I highly recommend this book for action book fans everywhere. It is intense, realistic, exciting and well researched.
While studying nuclear engineering, I used to do all kind of calculations for radiation shielding and shelter design. This book is quite close to the real situation as far as nuclear shielding and construction of fallout shelters concerns. I suspect it is also quite correct as far as survivalism techniques. I also know that the analysis of the debasement of the US dollar, and its implications on global inflation and monetary instabilities are also quite correct. I do not know about the nuclear winter recovery scenario, I never studied the matter; although I am curious to do some reading now to validate the atmosphere recovery outcome the books suggests.
I liked the book very much and I'll be looking for the coming one.
The only weakness was in the beginning where the author jumped around with the timeline; I found this initially confusing, but once into the book it all made sense and was a fantastic read. In particular I enjoyed the tone which avoided the 'Dooms Day Preppers' nutter element. I would strongly recommend this book to those readers that enjoy the 'science fact' genre. In my estimation it is a good as my current favourite, 'One Second After'
