This story takes place in the near future, in the aftermath of a major economic collapse brought upon by hyperinflation. The US and Europe fall into complete chaos. The main character in the book is nameless. He is only referred to as The Man until the very end, when a significant even occurs. We follow him and his value system on a long trek into a human made hell. There is very little here about prepping. It is more a story about how a man changes - and yet stays the same - in the face of unimaginable horror.

If you enjoy reading apocalyptic/end-of-the-world type books, definitely add this book to your collection. The book does start a little slow and the author's writing style did bug me a little at first, but it isn't a big deal. It's written from the point of view of the main character, but more in a narrating way and not a first-person viewpoint. The main character is usually referred to as "the man" as we never find out his name (that I can recall) and it just bugged me a little. I think it might have flowed a little better if the story was told from the main character's mind. Other than that, this book was a joy to read. Plenty of detail as to how the country collapsed along with interesting characters, a good amount of action and plenty of suspense all mixed together with a warming tale of how "the man" is forced to raise a small boy and the bond they create with each other. If i could, I would probably rate this a 4.5/5 but can only rate with whole numbers
