There are lots of books coming out in this genre lately and quite a few haven't been worth the time to listen... This one although the writing style isn't the best... was well worth my time and $. It follows a family who is scattered around the country, but has a prepper dad who they all thought was crazy.
There are some very creative and new to me solutions for EOTWAWKI problems. There is a lot of teaching from father to children, allowing us to learn his prepper ideas, theories and beliefs while reading. This is not a classic everyone would love to read like "Alas Babylon" or "One Second After." It doesn't include model numbers like the "Patriots" series. Those living in Texas would particularly like this book. There are no zombies or science fiction. Lots of violence, clean language, nice Christian family making hard choices... it got better as went along. A few hard to believe passages...
It is a part of a series, but this is stand alone if desired. The second book presents entirely different ideas and theories for a son traveling cross country alone. It was also well worth the read. At this writing the 3rd isn't out yet or I would be reading it now. Narrator was irritating at first with multiple accents really grating on my nerves, but he seemed to relax or do better as the book progressed... at least I didn't notice as much. I will probably read again.

This is my first listen of any of Mr. Hacker's books.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
