To my way of thinking, there are basically two types of apocalyptic fiction, the ones that consist of a good story and are educational like Patriots and the Survivalist Series and the second type that is just a story.The New World Series, consisting of The End, The Long Road and Sanctuary are about the results of an EMP attack on this country. To me this series falls into the category of just a story.
The story is told by the daughter of our hero much later in her life. If I had not made a commitment to read these books, I would not have finished the first chapter of the first book, The End. It started out very slow. My wife made it about a quarter of the way through the first book.
I will admit that after the first chapter The End got more interesting. The New World Series is heavy on violence and to me the main character was not likable and did not take care of his family. Be warned that the books use a fair amount of bad language.
If you are or were a Marine, you will not like the books since they show the Marine Corp in a bad light. They are disloyal and mutinous.
I wanted to like this series, the subject is one I normally enjoy reading about and I like the publishing company. But I cannot say that I really enjoyed this series nor would I recommend it to my friends. My apologies to G Michael Hopf the author, but I am not a fan of this series.
I do have one set of the New World Series to give away. If you still want them send me an email at PreparednessAdvice@gmail.com with suggests for a future post and I will enter your name in my drawing.
