I recommend that you instead read any other post-apocalyptic book ever. Cannibalism is a fate worse than death, apparently. Eye roll after eye roll. Mar 09, Cecilia rated it it was amazing. Reading the book made me more serious about preparing. Only the author’s military characters are portrayed positively, women and “hippies” are described as basically worthless human beings, the main character is a hypocrite of the highest order, almost the entire book plays out in conversations between military characters classic “telling, not showing” writing mistakeand there’s no attempt at character development whatsoever in an end of the world scenario a ridiculously difficult error to make.

An author can only do so if their book is as good. Maybe a little more about the sawdust pancakes, and what’s happening to the people eating them?

I am Mormon, too. But ignore the EMP as the delivery mechanism. Suddenly, skills that haven’t been needed in several generations have become critically necessary. No matter which way it comes, it is lethal to any country and any countries way of life. If I get injured anywhere on my body, no matter how minor it may seem, take it seriously!
