Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Only if they are die hard preppers who don't care much about fiction.
Would you be willing to try another book from Ron Foster? Why or why not?
Yes, I'm hoping he becomes a better writter.
How could the performance have been better?
I dont think it can be based on the content and lack of story continuity.
Could you see The Solitary Man, Volume 1 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Ugh, not at the moment, it would end up like Atlas, Shrugged or some other crap adaptation. I'd rather see a better novel, then a movie off of 'that' better novel. Will Patton could star though :)
Any additional comments?
The fiction in the book HAS to get better, I know the author receives great reviews, but that might be confusing the didactic nature of the content (preppin stuff and how-tos) instead of the fictional prose (the story) it has some decent spots, but exposition ruins it. It is worse than James Wesley Rawles 'Survivors'. I do like the Don and mother survivor combo/interaction, you don't see that much. Don's friends seem to have better dialog than he does. The narrator does well with female voices. The other books should be reread by Duane Sharp.
This was one of those audiobooks that I almost gave up on in the first couple of minutes due to the idiosyncratic reading style of the narrator, but I'm glad I didn't. There is a wealth of information being presented here, and the author has obviously done extensive research on the topic of survival after a solar flare. This is one book I might have to pick up in hard copy (you know, because if a solar flare does hit, I doubt anyone will be listening to audiobooks). The author covered a wide range of topics, and discussed at length agriculture considerations that I had not even thought of before. Even if you aren't a "prepper", there is a great deal of food for thought contained in this book. If you can power through the first couple of minutes of the narrator's deadpan reading style, you will enjoy this book.
