Unlike most end of the world type stories the scenario here is very real. A combination of climate change an increasing population is already rapidly depleting the Earth’s resources and the situations presented here are not far fetched at all. I would not say that there is any good advice for Prepper’s to be found here. What there is a very good justification for Prepper’s actions.
This may not be a brilliantly written story, nor are the characters superb, or even especially memorable and the narrative could do with some work. Whilst some might question the speed with which events occur they are believable if extreme. This is not to take away from what is still a very enjoyable and informative read.
Ultimately this is not a novel to be read as an instruction manual or even a superb example of storytelling but rather as a chilling warning about what could very well be the future of our species if things do not change. And if for no other reason than that it deserves to be read.

Very good read and well written.
Hope authors view of the future doesn't happen.
Only negative thought it sped up near the end probably could have got two books out of it.
But great read finished it in two days.
