did not disappoint.

Seven Days by Sterling Nixon is a thriller set in the future America where the government is collapsing. With the country set to fall apart, a drastic event forces everyone to shift to survival mode. Rick Savage, a former CIA operative, finally gets to put his survivalist inclinations to use, when he sets out to save his brother, Issac, a pastor and a slowly building community.

I thought this novel was gripping and did not disappoint. While the beginning was slow, the plot picked up quickly and was complex. There were a lot of diverse characters with different strengths and weaknesses that help keep the survivalist community going. Ultimately, I felt that this novel was more about how communities of people come together in hard times than anything else. Additionally, I felt that the real relationship that the novel was centered around was between Rick and Issac. The two of them look at how to survive is dramatically different ways. It was compelling to watch them come to compromises that would allow them to survive but also retain humanity. The hard times in this case were when survivalist training is needed.

The political backdrop of the novel is a great motivation for the events that occur and provide the reader with some context. I would love to have gotten more context about what was happening to some of the peripheral characters. It also would have been great to get insight into the national situation throughout the novel and at the end. Overall, the book was fantastic and exciting. I loved the different characters and the author was able to evoke emotion from me, which I really appreciate in a novel. The end of the novel was rewarding, if a little predictable.

The narrator, John McLain, did a fantastic job with the different characters. I believed that the characters were different and some of the accents were decently done. I especially liked the voicing for the character Chaz, who goes through a dramatic change, and his voice changes with him. The production quality was great.

Great Book

Well written, characters developed appropriately, story line keeps you looking to see what's next. The perfect read/listen I had a terrible time putting it down to go to work.
This author and narrater do excellent jobs trully looking for the next from this author and hope the same narrater does the book.
You will enjoy it, very little bad language as well which is really nice, I get tired of the foul language that poor authors "always use" to try and make their book[s] exceptable.
