Good if you are a preteen boy
Disappointing sequel to Book 1. I was expecting a story about how Jack and his family traveled to Wyatt's home town and got down to the business of living simply but well. Instead there was no good transition from Book 1 to 2. In Book 2 Jack and his family are already in Wyatt's area and living off acorn bread with the younger son starving due to food allergy to acorns. They seem inept.
Introduction grabs your attention. Two concluding soliloquies by the Chief of Police and Jack pretty good. In between the beginning and the end, mostly shoot em up running around - boring and nasty. Villain Shane really vile. Wyatt, Dutch, Chief of Police seem to be the only mature men.
Not really a prepper novel. Interesting points about how to leach the tannin from acorns and how to get warm if you are dunked in a cold river. Not much useful information. This might appeal to 8 to 12 year old boys, but would you want your sons to listen to this since most of the men's examples are bad and appeal to the baser instincts? I was thinking this could be played on a car ride with young boys, but I think it would only encourage them to hit and punch each other more.
Travis Baldree, the narrator very good. I kept thinking the author, John Winchester, must be under age 25. Book 1 shows John Winchester's potential, this just does not live up to it.
Book 1 was so promising. I had planned on listening to Books 2 and 3, but after listening to Book 2, I will not get Book 3.
I cannot recommend this book.
