One of the things I liked about this book was that the main character is supposed to be an average joe, not some Rambo veteran who we can't relate to. With this said, I do feel that the book tries to build him up to be far more of a silent hero than necessary, but that's just a niggle.
All in all, I found it really entertaining. Nothing ground breaking, but just a good solid survival novel about a guy on a long journey to get back to his family in a country without electricity where simple resources are fast becoming scarce and things are pretty lawless.
Also many feet of typeface devoted to description of meals consumed, and these descriptions made little contribution to the plot.
Too many untied ends at the finish of this book, very transparently driving sales of the following volume Surviving Home....
Having read all three volumes so far published, not one ends in a satisfactory way for me. After volume three I will not be wasting any more money or time in reading books from this author.
I was pleasantly surprised how fast this book read and how all the main characters were believable for me. I also liked the comedy element that some of the characters had.
I liked the way the book finished as it was not on a cliff hanger which can be frustrating, but it did make me want to read more.
Look forward to reading Surviving Home.

A little preachy but a good read, not too sure but the rest of the series will possibly be more entertaining.Published 13 months ago by david graeme smith
Slightly formulaic but enjoyable. Lots of preppie detail with named brands that don't mean much in the Uk. I liked the three main protagonists and felt exhausted on their behalf! Read morePublished 21 months ago by B. Singleton
Could not get into this book at all. So many references to branded products it was unbearable. At times it felt like reading a shopping receipt from a survival store. Read morePublished on 11 Jan. 2015 by Roger444
Fine story but dreadfully written. Found it hard work and wearing because of language and writing style.Published on 24 Nov. 2014 by Milo Tiger
