    Pretty good read

    A lot of characters to keep track of, but the story is a good one bringing community members to help one another during a catastrophe. I think it should have been longer though and I didn't really understand why members of a rural area would move towards the cities when they could feed themselves off the land, but the characters in this book stayed in the relatively deserted rural area and met up with unsavory characters and bad weather. Overall, a pretty good read.

    Enjoyed this read.

    A bit different than your average end of the world novel. This one was a sort of Mother Earth News version. A more country, little less rock and roll than the norm for this genre.

    Good, standard, survivalist, post-apocalyptic fun!

    Reminiscent of "Earth Abides" and "Alas, Babylon". A bit heavy on the cliched and overdone DYI "happy without civilization crowd" as well it's depiction of post-apocalyptic "government/authority" figures but still a fun read.
