Going Home

This is a fascinating book.  Basically our main protagonist is away from home when the end of the world as we know it strikes.  Getting back home is the basic plot of our story.

The detail of what a world comes to when no authority exists and when nobody knows where their next meal will come from is what fills in the story. 
Given, this book has a lot of detail regarding survival both urban and rural in it.  While I can see how this might be a bit much for the readers that prefer a fast moving plot line, I myself loved it.  The book moves plenty fast enough as it is. 

The theme of the book might upset some readers.  It might be made to be fiction…fantasy…an exaggeration.  And hopefully it is although I doubt it.  My dad used to say the next big war will not be over territory, religion or such but over water and that little bit of a vegetable garden some of us has the luxury to own.  This book resounded with that sentiment. 
I love the fact that the world building is done extensively and that all the main characters are introduced and settled so that the reader can go on with the series already steadily established in this world. 

A very good read.

Book Description
Publication Date: June 25, 2013
Book 1 of The Survivalist Series

If society collapsed, could you survive?

When Morgan Carter’s car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country’s power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored—if it ever will be. An avid survivalist, Morgan takes to the road with his prepper pack on his back.

During the grueling trek from Tallahassee to his home in Lake County, chaos threatens his every step but Morgan is hell-bent on getting home to his wife and daughters—and he’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Fans of James Wesley Rawles, William R. Forstchen's One Second After, and The End by G. Michael Hopf will revel in A. American's apocalyptic tale.
