Publisher's Summary

This audiobook combines the three postapocalyptic adventure books of the Solitary Man Series. Look around. Millions of preppers are working feverishly every day to get prepared for what they fear is a disaster about to happen in America. The motivation for preparing differs for each person. Donald is getting his farmstead prepared in case a predicted solar storm takes out the electrical grid. Some folks might call what Donald is trying to create as a bug-out location. Other people consider his little rural house as an effort to become more self-sufficient, like a homesteader. Donald can agree with both lines of thinking, but the way he sees it, it is going to be his own safe haven or refuge from the NASA predicted solar storm.
This book focuses on building a bug-out location from scratch, with permaculture and disaster psychology.

Badly Constructed Narrative

I do owe Foster a thanks for introducing me to the world of 'preppers', and giving me something to chew over when it comes to why there are so many people looking forward to the apocalypse. However, as a novel, this is poorly constructed.

As with many fetishists, Foster makes the common mistake of believing his readers will share his obsession with preparing for the looming apocalypse. Consequently, he offers no insight for the mainstream reader into the hows or whys of people who have caught the 'prepping' bug. There's no context to the characters. In fact, there is very little effort to examine any of the characters' motivations. The plot flits around, clumsily interrupted with recipes, hints on prepping, and long digressions on different types of ammunition. The whole novel is dripping with a curious sort of schadenfreude towards the non-prepping majority, and there is no sense that the author was even aware of this.

Consequently, I was relieved when it was over.

Packed with facts

Any additional comments?

While entertaining, the story was not a blockbuster. However, this book was packed with excellent information which is a must have for the prepper bookshelf. I look forward to more from Mr. Foster.
