This is a view at what happens in a neighborhood when some have and some don't. You see this type of setup in books like "Jakarta Pandemic" and "Cyber Storm" (books I enjoyed) and "The End" (didn't). This is not a stand alone book... although you can stop reading after book one, you must read book one to understand this and you will be left falling off a cliff needing to read book three afterwards... and then waiting impatiently for June 2014 to read four. I almost wished I had stopped at one and waited for four to be ready before making the plunge.
The writing style is still very basic, the narrator instead of getting better gets worse (goes from one set of characters to the next without a breath or pause, leaving a person confused at where the heck he is... plus blatant mispronunciations which he finally gets corrected (but they didn't go back and edit). The plot continues to be brilliant and original, with less named brand supplies and more military involvement.
There is strong language peppered though it, lots of gun violence, minor sexual innuendos and lots of hungry, beaten down folks and others who take advantage of them. The characters become even more real in this book and you follow not only Morgan and his family, but the friends he made in "Going Home."

Book 2 of the Surviving Home series continues the story line. The author keeps the story moving, provides a lot of information in addition to the story, and makes me look forward to more. The narration is good, too.

great book have to keep on listening
great page Turner if ordenary book
this was a new author I decided to try whilst waiting for Hopf 's next book. it was so good I have found a new favourite author. story was original and captivating and characters were great. Couldn't put the book down and I left the world for 19 mins as I searched to find more books by this author but also find the next in the trilogy to this one!
this guy can write ...Really good story.
of course I have to buy the rest of the series. That's how good writers suck you in. narrator is good. but still have trouble distinguishing between start and Finnish of a part. Only gripe I have with this.

An American story of survival in a world gone back in technological time. People accustomed to the reliance on tech have it taken away and have to adapt or die. As an Australian, it would be not much different except much larger distances to travel. Great series. Must read!
