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?
