What would you do if you were driving home, still a couple hundred miles away, and a natural disaster happened that wiped out all electronics? Your car is dead. Your precious iPhone is worthless. You can’t even turn on the radio to see what’s happening… not that anyone would be able to broadcast anything anyway.
This is the reality of GOING HOME, the first book in THE SURVIVALIST SERIES by A. American. (catchy name, huh?)
(In case you’re wondering, I’d probably cry. A lot. And hope that I was wearing good walking shoes. Gold clogs are going to be pretty worthless if I have to hike home.)
As I’ve confessed before, Josh is a bit more, shall you say, obsessed with this apocalypse-style fiction (and non-fiction) than I am, so I thought that these books could be a good way to see what he’s reading, without getting myself caught up in the heavy-hitter conspiracy theory dramas that he seems to love (and that I seem to not understand). We’re doing our own little mini-book club with these books and this series is so much more appealing to me because it feels like what the main character, Morgan Carter, goes through, just to get home to his family and to survive, feels real. And, best of all, it’s palatable for readers, like me, who aren’t “preppers.” GOING HOME breaks down what is happening in bite-sized pieces, as sort of an introduction into the world of disaster-fiction. I’m anxious to get through the first book and move on to the next two…
