    No, not a good book.



    AN EXCELLENT BOOK! I just bought his other book and pre-ordered his next one (due out in October?) for my iPad.

    I started to buy this book but the reviews I read were mixed, including a very detailed review that was not positive. It sounds it's not a fictional story but a detailed list of what and why to have. The review said that there was no plot or character development. I don't know I haven't read the book, but I'm just saying that the reviews for the most of them I read were not all that great so I didn't buy it.

    It's a nice story, not Clancy or Ludlum, but kept my attention. Read it about 6 months ago.
    However, the value is that the story is a thin disguise for a fairly good primer in bug-out and survival. Emphasis is more on tactical and security, but food, transportation in the event of bug-out, clothing, and even some social aspects are addressed.

    The story gave enough character development to make it seem to have real people involved. But, it is really a how-to with a story around it. I think it would actually make a great movie! With some editing and such of course.

    Cons:
    The first couple of chapters provide some, key word some information on preparations. But really, this is a fantasy story. The concepts are sound, but in today's economy how many of us can have steel plates made for our windows, a custom made 4" thick steel front door, dynamite in bulk along with blasting caps, C4, etc. Good enough for a late night low budget flick on TBS, but nothing new or riveting is offered to the hunter, farmer or military veteran. If you are one of the sheeple who has just awaken to the possibility that our country is on a steep slope to ruin or that the Government is NOT there to help YOU, then this might be a nice introduction to what could happen.

    Pros: (I like to leave on a positive note)
    Nicely written, not graphic or is excessively violence, no profanity which is a plus. I do like the group has a strong broad religious base and that helping your neighbor and doing no harm to non-threats is a concept that is lacking in most Hollywood productions. I do plan on having my teen age son read this over the summer to fuel some conversations.

    Anybody read the sequel, or whatever it is yet? "Survivors" I believe it is.

  11. I met JWR once. It was in the men's room at a Love's truck stop in Utah. It changed my life.
