America is in the thrall of a full-scale socioeconomic breakdown. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation destroys the value of the dollar, and the population, unprepared for hardship, panics. Practically overnight, the high-technology infrastructure and chains of supply collapse, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every city. Law enforcement, transportation, electricity, fuel, and medical supplies are all in the past now, as the country staggers beneath its own weight. Lawless bands of killers roam the countryside, leaving devastation in their wake and now that the government is gone, the Constitution is at stake. Who will carry on?
In this chaotic and dangerous environment, a few families and individuals, bound together by their faith, skills, and foresight, must struggle not only to survive day by day but defend themselves against a new and vicious predator - their fellow man.

Renowned survivalist expert James Wesley, Rawles has packed this story with the cold hard facts about how to stay alive in the face of mass riots, starvation, and anarchy. His expertise lends unforgettable, authentic detail to this season's most chilling novel. Listeners will not only be entralled, they will learn invaluable lessons on how to survive the coming collapse.

like the story line

While one second after is non-christian friendly the same can not be said for Survivors. The story is good the performance of the book is good, but i have to give the overall a three star rating because of the blatant and over the top christian propaganda.

While some may say the book would be better if JW Rawles went back and deleted all christian references to the book, I would say that the quality of the book would be doubled or tripled if he removed half the reference to Christianity. Frankly as a non-christian it is insulting to have the subtext of the book be "If your not a christian your not a good person and cannot be a good person.". The author would be much better served to follow the C.S. Lewis approach to writing and be more subtle about his flag waving for Christianity.

In comparison One Second after while it has a great story is heavy on trivial facts, and is much more subtly Christian so that it can be read without you feeling the author is trying to shove Christ down your throat. While Survivor has a lot of great practical knowledge a good story but is constantly shoving Christianity in your face. It would be nice if these two authors could find a middle ground.

Not very good

I hate to have to write this, cause i LOVED patriots.

This just wasnt very good.

I get it that James Wesley values faith very very highly, and Patriots made that clear. But all his heroes have to spend as much time praying, as 'doing'.

Also, in Patriots, you really liked the attention to detail that Wesley gave to his survivors.

The attention to detail Wesley gives to his characters in Survivors is painful. He seems to need to use as many words as possible to create length, and not to move the story.

Also, he bounces around between his survivors but never really has any of them do much.

In short, again, sorry to say...Survivors is boring.
