    A different viewIt was interesting to read a British take on this. One obvious example, almost no one has guns. His characters seem realistic in their ineptness. One minor complaint-if your going to explain the traps in such detail, include a diagram. Otherwise, just keep it brief. It disrupts the story and the description didn't really work. Otherwise, I enjoyed this story and look forward to the next book.

    Needed better editing.I expect an author to know when to use "I" or "me" properly. That he doesn't was a turn off from the start. And if the protagonist's father was so good at survival, why wasn't there a weapon and ammunition in the bug out bag? And where did the crossbow come from to save the whole story? Too many holes.

    Could not finish bookForeign slang and writing style that I couldn't get past. Could not get into the book, much less finish it.

    Teleurstelling Slecht geschreven, oppervlakkig en simpel taalgebruik en zinsconstructies, weinig diepgang. Geschreven met een soort van haast om door het verhaal te komen, met een opeenstapeling van vechtscènes die niet geloofwaardig over komen. Een van de minst interessant boeken uit dit genre. Ik ben niet snel negatief maar dit boek was echt een teleurstelling

    Really engrossing. Here we have a regular guy instead of a super prepared prepper. As the story moves along at a fast pace our hero, Will, grows and changes as real people would in this situation. I read it in one afternoon. I really liked that it was set in UK where everyone is not armed to the teeth. People have to be creative when it comes to defense.

    Very bare bones survivalist storyThis book gave information about how to create traps, cook stuff on open fires and tips for navigation. The information just like the rest of the book was all very technical in nature and at times made my eyes glaze over. My problem was that he did describe things in a way that would paint a picture. I didn't see this post apocalyptic world we were in because there just wasn't enough description.

    Not great.Too much junk writing. For someone who wrote books on the apocalypse, the guy didn't know much. I don't think I will read part two.

    No zombies...I like a good apocalypse book. And with Ryan that is what you get. This is the story of a man with a broken family who when asked to leave by his wife, takes his dog and retreats to Scotland in the boonies where there are no people.Of course, an EMP happens and he's not sure what's wrong until his car won't start, his phone won't work,yeah, we get the picture.He starts a long journey back to find his wife and daughter. But within a few days the world has changed. Only the strong will survive. Will he?This was a really good read. I am anxiously awaiting for the next...thanks ..

    Ryan Casey!That's the only one I know that can take a man and a dog and make them into a dynamic duo! I loved every minute of this gritty and dark story! The scenes just come alive and before you know it you're dropped into this world you want desperately to be apart of. Each page threatens to take you to a place that you dread to be but you can't turn away from! Great storyline! I recommend this book and can't wait to read the next!

    Realistic and believableLike most 'post apocalyptical fiction you expect the story to spin into an unrealistic storyline however this is certainly a believable portrayal of what you could face should the lights go out! We all have a inner desire to survive and protect those most important to us and Ryan certainly hits that mark! A really good read.

    Missing MilionsI enjoyed his spiral into savagery to survive and the beer can cooker but where were the millions of survivors,did they just disappear.perhaps I might find out in his follow-up.a little bit corny but it was fun.only three stars though for effort

    Really differentWhen I saw this book was about an EMP I expected the usual and I was surprised. This story has an unusual twist and turn in most every chapter. Engrossing and well worth reading.
