Book Review: Tomorrow War

I mentioned Tomorrow War in a previous post.  I finished it a day later, as did my better half, Catherine the Great.

This is a story of economic collapse and post-apocalypse survival.  It is one of the best in this genre that I’ve read, and I have added a link to this book in the Ushanka Library book list at the left.

I was impressed with the author’s collapse timeline and his knowledge of the survival challenges at each stage of collapse.  He offers a list of to-do’s and what-will-happen that includes many established and expected events.  He also introduces several new considerations.  All these are wrapped into a well-written book.

As I said in the previous post, the first part of the book is not entertaining.  It is a nail-biter.  I noticed two more segments to the book’s organization.  Segment #2, the middle part of the book, was written in diary form similar to the author’s zombie books.  Not as tense as part #1.  The last part of the book ramps the tension back up and will take you to a great finish.

I suspect this is will be the first of several.  There are still some unanswered questions including this burning question: Who is Rich?
