I enjoyed this book much more that I thought I would. While I like the genre, I tend to be pretty critical of authors that are looking only to write a “how to” book with a thin veneer of fiction or write a “perfect scenario” for the prepper protagonist to flourish in. This book did have a bit of both of those issues but not to the extent that I couldn’t enjoy the story.
This book has really locked itself into a point in time (now) in mentioning names of current political figures and popular podcasts and Youtube channels, but for me that added some reality to it and illustrated that this author is genuinely interested in the topics he is writes about.
I also like the narration by Kevin Pierce. Pierce has narrated several books that I have listened to (The Borrowed World, Ashes of the Unspeakable, The Days of Noah and the "299 Days" series by Glen Tate). For some reason the genre has latched onto Pierce, and my only issue is that hearing his voice and having listened to several of his narrations the stories sometimes will run together in my mind. But maybe that’s just me.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Pierce – was your favorite?
Kevin Pierce does an excellent job with all the characters without distracting from the story. I've listened to quite a few books that he's narrated and often search for books by good narrators instead of subject or author.
Kevin Pierce is one of those narrators.
Any additional comments?
The book points out the difficulties in having a prepared environment in the middle of a urban/suburban area. The main character is forced to make difficult decisions when dealing with looters, neighbors, HOAs and other idiots.
The book is well written book with more focus on relationships than the event. The characters all have flaws and discover that life is better together than alone. It seems that the EMP crises actually ends up being good for several of the characters as they find each other, find love and purpose as they learn to survive.
