Book Description

A fun family vacation turns into an apocalyptic nightmare when a couple and their young son find themselves trapped in the Irish countryside during an international crisis. With all contact outside the country gone, all electricity and all non horse-powered vehicles useless and desperate bands of outlaws roaming the Emerald Isle, the time has come for one soft American family to reach deep within for the reserve of brains and courage to survive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Page-turner 3 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Generally this is a real page-turner and an enjoyable read. I only have a few criticisms, mainly connected with the fact that the book is obviously written for an American audience. For example, although the main characters (all Americans) are well drawn, there is some stereotyping regarding the Irish sub-characters. The main issue for me, however, was that the author seemed to forget that Kindle makes the audience international. Even though I have lived in America and have quite a few American friends, I found myself irritated by the constant reference to the virtues of being American and I hate to think how a Canadian, French, Italian etc. reader would react.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disapointing 1 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First off I have to say I haven't finished the book, I was turned off first by the over the top stereotypical Irish woman in the shop at the beginning, after the event itself the book is very slow and the characters are not very likeable. I will eventually finish the book but it's not great and I wouldn't reccommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two and a Half really.... 25 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not sure exactly what attracted me to this book as it is not the normal genre I read. Perhaps it was the name and being from the wet, cold, muddy, dirty and poor island of Ireland, where the people are obviously backward, stupid and wild perhaps I was looking for a free book to escape the drudgery.

Before I critic the book (fairly I hope) I first have to say that any Americans or other nationalities out there reading this book please take the stereotyping in this book as what it is - nonsense. We are not backward, wild or stupid and we are wonderful community based people, gypsies are not around every corner and our roads are much like they are everywhere else! Also any cottage or house I know has more than one room and the bed isn’t in the living room.

As you have probably guess the stereotyping in the book irritated me and not just from an Irish point of view, I know from experience that not all Americans are materialistic, non-dimensional characters , half soccer mom with a bit of “John Wayne” thrown in or that they believe that they are from a superior race. I won’t even get into the way the UK (America’s friend) was characterised.

I also found the book a bit predictable and think that the author could have done so much more with the storyline. Perhaps a few failed attempts at providing food might have helped authenticate the story. I was at awe of the main character, Sarah, seemed to take to everything so fast. I am not sure that I would have been able to make bread on my first attempt or work out how to milk a goat without instruction or fire a gun without some-one to help explain which bullet went where but that might be just the Irish thing.

However, if you can get past the stereotyping, the book is a bit thought provoking – what would I do without my kindle if we had no electricity – especially as I have given up most of my book shelves.The thought of it made me break out into a cold sweat!

2.0 out of 5 stars Stereotyped 7 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't finish this, I was too irritated by the stereoytypes of irish people and the carry-over stereotypes from the US. Not a great piece of writing. Unlikeable and shallow characters.
For me, this was a waste of money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expecting more! 24 Nov. 2013
By KarKeay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novel started off well but then turned into a slow paced story about a group of survivors in rural Ireland after an EMP occurence.It could have been so much better. Disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual genre 8 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not what I would usually choose in a book, vague ideas about horse care. I had a lot of question not answered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't finish it 13 April 2015
By JH
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the first seven chapters of this before deciding that nothing sparked my interest. I didn't warm to the characters and the setting was weak. Set in the present day, an American family of two adults and one child arrive in Ireland to find the holiday home they have rented is a one room, one bed cottage with no central heating. What is more, there are three horses they are expected to clean out and feed. They knew nothing of this prior to arrival. Unlikely - but how convenient when their car wouldn't start after 'the event'. Ditto the goat! The place did have a television however so they had a short warning of trouble in America before all power was cut off. They then thought because the trouble had been aimed at America, they being Americans would be hated by the Irish! Weird!

1.0 out of 5 stars Cliché and stereotypical 22 Jan. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very typical US family beats all the odds, stereotypical drivel. Also very patronising (damn, patronizing!) and rather demeaning of gypsies and the "humble" Irish population. Couldn't be more cliché or stereotyped. Even goes so far as to promote the typical US attitude that everything can be fixed by violence and wild west style shoot outs in rural Ireland!

Seems to me the author has little or no understanding or experience of other cultures, written from a purely US centred (ups, sorry, centered!) condescending point of view. I could say more but I think that's enough! I won't be reading the other books in the series.
