A need for prepping
Reviewed in the United States on March 3, 2021
Our family are preppers. We have many items to help in such times as book indicates, and our designated area we store specifically for the food and survival items. But I loved the book, though a novel, in fact brought out the reality of an EMP strike, being attacked, and all the calamities associated with the impact of such! The one thing of many brought to my attention is I realised we need a pre computerised car! So today we started the search. Though I pray we do not lose all we rely on due to possible EMP or brutal attacks by warheads, though, I pray not, we must be prepared. The world currently through COVID and other political things are not looking so great so we should be prepared. We are not conspiracy theorists but we do prep storage etc; which saved us when we went through a few hard financial times. But this post apocalyptic story is absolutely incredible. For even preppers like my family there were so many things we discovered by reading this novel, we did not have on our list and in our provisions. Amazing read. The fact that even small things in book mention items such as winter is coming on, no clothes and a teenaged boy outgrowing his pants, how without a treddle machine unless lots of hand stitching do they get new pants or half way decent pants. Shops are looted, people are turning nasty to survive but thank heavens there are still some do gooders My only complaint is it ended so suddenly and not a word in the end on the Congress and being secluded to hopefully keep government functioning, and IMO I was left hanging unless it’s in book two. Other than that it would have been a 5*. Maybe none of these things will ever be needed and we will as a world community will be safe, but it still gives food for thought.
