Good SHTF Survival Fiction Books

Recommended Posts

One year after auto downloaded the other night. I'm just about done re-reading the Black Tide Rising series. I think I will re-read 1 second after and then go to 1 year after. It has been a while since 1 second after and I want to refresh my memory of the characters...

Sorry, but One Year After takes place in a different location and with a different cast.

 

I was disappointed to find this out.

I didn't realize that hipower. Wow.

 

I thought I read it was set back at Black Mountain. I probably should have read a bit more closely...but heck, I still have high hopes for it.

I'm on chapter 10 and the characters are still the same and it's still set in the mountains. So far, so good.

Really? That's not what the promo for it on Amazon had when I ordered it. But that was in pre order state. Guess it or I could have been wrong.

Yeah, everything so far is the same. All the people left surviving at the last book are still in it. Good so far. I'm 11 chapters in. I've got it on audiobook and listen while driving for work, I've been on the road a lot over the last few days.

OK, can't find anything like I first saw on it. Maybe my old feeble mind got it mixed up with another book listing. I don't know.

 

Apologies for the confusion guys.

None needed hipower.

 

"stuff" happens. Heck...I pre-ordered the book and didn't update my card when it was renewed and so essentially just ordered it on Tuesday...now I have to wait until Saturday to even start the book. Aw..technology... :cool:

One Second After...

 

Excellent read until the final chapter. It begs for a sequel IMHO.

 

What ever happened to the main character (forgot his name) and Gunny? You are left to your own devices deciding what happened... Bummer!

 

William R. Forstchen brings a sequel to his hit novel One Second After. Months before publication, One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read,

I'm about two thirds of the way through One Year After - it's good, but it doesn't have the impact that One Second had with me. 

For you guys waiting for the book - how come you're not reading on a Kindle?

I spent +20 years in the book business and have thousands of books in my home, but I don't read anything these days if it's not on my Kindle.

I'm 40% done with One Year After and bored to death. It's really disappointing.

Maybe not truly a SHTF book as we think it; but I'll recommend RAGE by Ken Shufeldt. I think it may be the first of a series of books.

I'm about 70% finished with One Year After. It's definitely different, as I guess it would have to be. Still well written though. It'd be nearly impossible to match the uniqueness and originality of One Second After...that book open the door to prepping for a lot of folks.

 

Thanks for the head's up on Rage hipower. I'll check it out.

 

I just ordered: Session ll by Joe Nobody. The first one was decent...so we'll see.  :cool:
