I am reading this right now and am not too sure about it as of yet. It is an easy read, but it is really slow and only grazes the top of what the characters are facing. Of course I am only 1/6 the way through the book, but I can’t tell if it is the writing style or the content that has my wondering if I am just wasting my time. If I was learning something or there was more action at this point I think I would be much more at ease with my book choice…. Again, I am only at page 120 out of 690 on my Nook.
Anyone else read it and if so was it a beneficial read? For point of reference, I do consider One Second After and the Morningstar Strain series as books that were worth the read.
Thank you for any direction or insight.

Hang in there. Overall I give it a 3.5 out of 4.

That is reassuring……..
Considering how little time I get to read, I want to get the most bang for my buck – if you will permit me the expression.
Thank you for your response.

What about future reads? Any suggestions?

It does get better, but yes at first it is a little dry. If you can get into it and picture yourself in that situation it will be a bit more entertaining.

I started reading a series called “Holding their own” by Joe Nobody. Also “The Survivalist” series by A. American. Both are totally no thought reading. I like to veg out sometimes so I have them on Kindle. Usually under $10 each.

I liked Lights Out, though it is not at the level of One Second After. All of these type books are pretty good about their handling of a portion of the issues we’d face under certain scenarios.September 9, 2014 at 6:24 pm #24503
The “Survivalist” series had so much filthy language that I returned it (to Audible) after 1 hour of listening. I’m not sure if there’s a profanity filter for Audible, but that was an issue for me as a Christian man. Just not worth it. For that reason I liked Rawles’ “Patriots”. I just bought a Kindle version of “A Failure of Civility” which looks very good.September 9, 2014 at 6:41 pm #24505
I particularly like:
Chapter 6. Area Tactical Protection for a Low Rise Residential Neighborhood.
Chapter 11 Planed Emergency Relocation Convoys and Security in MotionSeptember 9, 2014 at 7:20 pm #24507
PaulC I also enjoyed reading “Patriots” Just started “Survivors” – James Wesley Rawles. Need to order most books online from this side. Thanks for book info. Will look into all of themSeptember 9, 2014 at 8:15 pm #24512
