    I couldn’t finish it. I like the setting and idea but it’s kinda stuck between trying to be modern and at the same time being extremely sexist and old fashioned. I don’t mind either but the balance in this book is just too annoying for me. It can be on the last page of a chapter that the writer is trying to make it out how great the women are and empowered etc, only to call them “My Ladies” right at the beginning of the next chapter. I genuinely don’t give a dam about sexism and stuff in books, I couldn’t finish it.

I genuinely don’t give a dam about sexism and stuff in books, they are only bloody books. Some of my favourites are shockers. But this one just comes across like someone’s fantasy that’s been censored by someone who thinks they are sensitive to all this woke stuff but isn’t. Maybe I’m missing something? Maybe someone can tell me and give me a reason to finish. Only half left to read…

    I found this book to be very good at the beginning showing Jeff’s life as a survivor after the apocalypse. Very believable. Then when he rescues Ollie and Maria from from the slavers, that’s when turns into one man’s fantasy. Naturally, the women are young and beautiful. Despite the fact that Ollie and Maria witnessed their mother brutally raped and killed, they don’t seem very traumatized. Within days of living with Jeff they’re whining about wanting to wear their their bikinis on the boat, wan I found this book to be very good at the beginning showing Jeff’s life as a survivor after the apocalypse.

Despite the fact that Ollie and Maria witnessed their mother brutally raped and killed, they don’t seem very traumatized. Within days of living with Jeff they’re whining about wanting to wear their their bikinis on the boat, wanting nicer clothes and makeup, using their feminine wiles to get Jeff to do what they want, which works most of the time. He refers to these women as “my girls” which I found to be condescending and bordering just a tad on mysogeny. This story at this point was just a little too far-fetched to me. There are better post apocalyptic stories out there than this one. I think I will take a pass on the next book in this series.

    Predictable With Happy Ending The dialogue is stilted. No one has talked like these characters since the mid-Nineteenth Century, and I doubt it even then. The plot is plausible, but the access to all needed to execute it is much too convenient, so often unexplained, and generally unbelievable. If you’re looking for a good-guy-wins yarn to read on the graveyard shift, this book will suffice. If you want something usefully instructive, this book fails. If you are exceptionally tolerant, you might a Predictable With Happy Ending The dialogue is stilted.

    Good entertainment Reminds me of one of the first apocalypse movies I watched, Road warrior. Without the car chases.lol. I enjoyed the old man’s viewpoint on the end of civilization.

    Great and worthy read. I enjoyed the whole thing from start to finish. I enjoyed the characters and the laughs. Great story and up to date. There are lots of things to think about and try to master skills.

    A fun read. Not the usual apocalypse story! Really enjoyed the story. Funny at times, engaging, and keeps the action going. Well edited and proofed. Will be reading more of this series and other books by AN Newman.

    Something a bit different An apocalypse story with a sense of humor. Likable characters in a story with actions that seem a bit simplistic and which unfolds at a leisurely pace. Enjoy.

    A little different An older man teaching and showing the way, with no fancy armory or rich supply cdepot. Believable, with hardships an answers.
