This was an amazing audio book. You will not find another book that draws you into the action as much as The Pact. One minute you are passively listening while you drive home from work and the next you are staying up late just to finish one more chapter. I particularly liked the bonds shown between father and children. I haven't come across another writer who can so accurately describe the love for his children. He takes the typical "I love my children" sentiment found in most books and makes you see the deeper bond.

This book is written in a straightforward and sparse writing style. No Tom Clancy multi page descriptions, no chapters of back ground setup. This author covers territory in this short book that nowadays would typically require three 350+ page tomes. It is refreshing. If you are looking for fast paced military small unit invasion America fiction, I think this book is a good choice.
You Should Be Forewarned!
As I said, the author imparts information with very few words. I believe he made a critical mistake in setting the stage. In a sentence or two at the beginning of the book the liberal government is blamed for disarming America. I spent the first half of the book distracted as my mind kept wandering back to this hack contrivance. It would take a large majority of the nation to undo the 2nd Amendment. Modern attempts at gun control have mostly resulted in increased gun ownership. This shorthand attempt to set the stage for the story will offend many, either politically or intellectually. As a potential reader, be aware. Let it go. The book is not an anti liberal rant. Don't spend a big chunk of the book irritated, or wondering how you would explain the mistake to the author. Just read.
