First of all Happy Veteran’s day to all who served. We love you gals and guys.
Second – I want to welcome back Ranger Man! He’s coming at us today with a review of a kick-ass book about some cool post-collapse fiction.
He’s doing good folks. I run into him occasionally and we talk via email a few times a month, so he’s definitely still in touch with the blog. Anyway, I’ll shut up so you can lissen’ up!
I’m baaaaa-aaaaack! Like a voice from the past, reviewing TEOTWAWKI fiction for the prepping/dystopian masses. It’s what I do … well, whenever Prepper Press sends me a “Hey, Ranger Man – wanna witness dis book and write the review you write?” Then I say in my best cracker rapper poser response – “Fo shizzle, my prepping pizzle.”
That’s when I get ….. THIS!
Ayuh, Indivisible: With Justice for Some. For some, not all? You read it right, because post-collapse, justice will be spread unevenly. Book description from the publisher:
America’s day of reckoning has come. Triggered by a Japanese liquidity crisis, a global run on U.S. Treasuries overwhelms the Federal Reserve and collapses the dollar. Mass inflation sparks civil unrest and panic as store shelves are emptied, gas prices rise tenfold, and Americans’ life savings are wiped out. Desperate to maintain control, the federal government grows increasingly totalitarian. The president orders the Army home in an attempt to restore law and order, but the army’s battle-hardened attitude and heavy-handed tactics only manage to spur the rebellion on. The lives of a tormented soldier, a tyrannical sheriff, a vain diplomat and a desperate father all converge amidst the chaos of total economic collapse and civil war in contemporary America.
The reckoning has come! Indivisible, Prepper Press tells me, was a previously self-published book by author Troy Grice. Troy, reportedly then said, “Yo Prepper Press dawgs – help a homie out.” Apparently they thought it was good enough to help the homie out. It was professionally edited, cover re-designed, and re-launched. I can see why they picked it up. Mr. Grice spins a prime tale of woe – of serious woe.
The post-apocalyptic peeps you seen on the book’s cover are represented in the story. Their individual stories get told, at first, independently of each other, but as the story progresses, Grice weaves their stories together in exacting fashion.
I’m always a bit torn on these reviews, how to tell you about the story without telling you too much, for I am the kind of person that never wants to know the end of a book or movie before I watch it, or even any details. In fact, sometimes I bristle at the idea of even reading the description of a movie. My woman, says, “I want to go see XYZ movie,” and I go “Okay, don’t tell me anything about it.” I like the idea of just sitting down and not having any idea what I’m about to get …. am I digressing? Kinda, I guess.
Anything I didn’t like about this book? I’d like the story to be longer, but it seems like it is part of a series, so I’ll get the longer story eventually. At least the price reflects the less-than-full-novel length. It’s worth the price, for sure; and it’s by no means a short story, but it’s not War and Peace either.
