Slowly, you get the sense that the author is learning how to write, and wham, about half way through the book it all begins to come together into a real story. It's natural for the words at the start of the book to be very different to the words at the end, perhaps written 6-12 months after the start, and I feel stronger editing could have dealt with that.
What about the positives? The last 30% of the book, really is a very compelling read. As the introductions and the explanations are completed, the pace really picks up and the result is gripping.
The real positive here, though, is the message. We really are all just living in a world made of straw, where our children only know that bread and milk comes from the supermarket, water comes from the tap, and no-one has any concept of "seasonal" produce anymore because most of it travels thousands of miles before it reaches the table, all year round. The human race is so very vulnerable, and civilisation could implode at any time.
There will, of course, be survivors - there always are - and reading this book gives some useful insight in how to be on the winning team.
The main protagonist, Mark Turner, is a reluctant leader, wrestling with his moral code and a decline in the rule of law. He is supported and opposed by believable characters and I like the level of prepping desribed.
What more can a commuter ask. Good read.
