On May Day 2018, 60 meteors entered Earth's atmosphere and exploded around the globe with a force greater than a nuclear blast. Earthquakes and tsunamis followed. Then China attacked Europe, Asia, and the United States in the belief the disaster was an act of war. Washington, DC was a casualty of the meteor onslaught that decimated the nation's leadership and left the surviving elements of the armed forces to try to restore order as American society fell apart.
As refugees across America band together and engage in open warfare with the military over scarce resources, a select group of individuals representing the surviving corporate structure makes a power play to rebuild the country in a free-market image as The New Confederacy.

Uh what did I just buy? Not as good as the ratings
Would you try another book from William C. Dietz and/or Noah Michael Levine?
I may pass on future books from this author. While I don't like the progressive angle of this book it is not why I really dislike it. I can read other views, but I need to be entertained by an actually engaging story. This is just a road trip for some of some lost tribe of sorta soldiers and an implausible presidential story line with outrageous stereotypes of what conservatism is.
What could William C. Dietz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Readers of dystopian/military fiction tend to understand firearms, military strategy and maneuver and know military equipment so if you are going to write in this genre understand that you may need to employ people knowledgeable in the subject. There are so many errors in the technical aspects in this book like an M1A2 Abrams tank having a 105mm gun, and Apache helicopters that fly everywhere without maintenance, but the Striker vehicles need new engines after 1000 miles. Did I mention that this book is boring and the battle scenes involve days of driving and 5 minutes of battle with little depth of action.
Which character – as performed by Noah Michael Levine – was your favorite?
Nobody really stood out.
Could you see Into the Guns being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Woody Harrelson, and Whoopie Goldberg.
Any additional comments?
I don't know how this book ended, because I have to move on because it just can't get into it after 5 hours of listening.

Definitely a progressive story
Definitely a progressive slant on a American civil war, but not a bad read. Why do I call it progressive?
1. During a town hall an assassination attempt on Sloan's life was stopped by one of the locals. Then everyone started shooting at the opposite political party.
This is how progressives see gun owners .
2. The confederates were seen as money grubbing idiots. A CEO instead of a president. All about profits and not the people. According to progressives this is conservatism.
Living in the South I find most confederates care about their neighbors, want smaller government, and want people to be responsible.
But again, all politics aside not a bad read

an interesting story but needs more refinement
honestly the story is interesting with some obvious social commentary of the place of self interest in society. the story really needs more refinement and the performance was adequate butt lacked some of the better qualities of other performances
