    I was keen to read this book but sadly could not finish it I read hundreds of books a year and the writing style in this just didn’t flowI found the start really dragged with a lot of information that is not really that relevant This is where that writers rule of “show don’t tell” the reader should have been appliedI just got bored and despite what sounded like a good plot it didn’t hold me Good editing might improve this book

    Tom is a fan of zombie and apocalypse books which leads him to wonder what he would do to protect his family if disaster came He and wife Becky decide to start prepping so when Tom sees some disturbing things on the news he knows he has less than a week before a huge solar flare changes their lives forever The uestion is who do you share the information with and will they believe you?I liked Tom because he is a normal guy living in the UK who loves to read my favourite kinds of books and I could relate to him completely When you read these prepper EMP solar flare and zombie books you can't help putting yourself in those situations and wondering what you would do different That is part of the fun and excitement of reading those genres Tom starts to seriously think how he would protect his family if a disaster hit especially when the UK does not allow homeowners to have gunsOne thing I love about prepper disaster books is following the person in their disaster preperations as they plan their food stockpile home defence weapons strategy power etc They discuss the merits of staying at home or going to their caravan in Wales They make lists and start to buy in the supplies they think they need However things soon turn manic when Tom finds out about a solar flare that will hit in under a week and he and Becky rush to get as much as they can in the time they have left Tom sees a man doing the same kind of mad shopping and realises that he and Jerry are both preppers Jerry has information that they only have three days and with a day to go Tom tries to tell his friends and family what is about to happen It leaves you with the uestion of when to confide in your loved ones whether they will believe you and which of your neighbours to help If you tell too many everyone who didn't believe you will come begging for help later If you tell nobody are you condemning them to their fate?When the disaster starts to unfold Tom uickly tells his neighbours to stockpile what they can from nearby shops before things get too dangerous to go out and the street becomes a community determined to work together for defence and supplies aided by Jerry and Allan a local policeman The neighbours get organised based on their skills share food collect supplies and plan how to defend their street from unfriendly thieves However not everyone in the street prove to be team players leading to a few surprising developments There is also the issue of the armed and dangerous raiders who are killing and raping their way through the neighbourhood and pose a threat to our team's survival It leads to the moral uestion of whether to just defend themselves or go on the offensive to stop the danger There is also the uestion of whether to help those who come to ask for food at their barricades or whether to assist those on the street who aren't pulling their weight or who want to leave It was interesting to see how the people all reacted to each new challengeSo why only three stars? I'm not really sure I liked it as a decent apocalypse read and it was great to see a book set in the UK There aren't enough good books in the genre with UK characters and scenarios It makes a nice change to see people who can't just buy a shed load of guns to solve all their defence issues Gun use in this book is certainly limited and I liked seeing changes to the usual plot For me there was just something missing to take it from a decent read to something great but I'm not sure what Nothing wrong with the book or writing so I probably would try books by the author

    This book is entertaining enough the writing isn't great but it's basically like indulging in a survivalist fantasy However I couldn't shook off the feeling it was extremely sexist Women have no role in this book other than caretakers or victims Overall that's pretty poor and boring and meant I couldn't enjoy the book

    There is a lot to commend in this book It takes place in the UK which is fun to see things from that area There is a lot of info and ideas about preparing for potential disaster and also what to do if the disaster occurs as it did here I also really likes that these ordinary people and neighbors banded together to work as a unit to survive I was put off by the writing style which was often choppy and the dialogue in particular did not flow well There were some odd spacing in the sentences which I tended to assume was a Kindle format issue I will most likely read the next book to see what happens and hope that the writing might improve with experience

    This was a really tough one for me to pick a rating for On the one hand I love the idea behind the plot especially the fact it takes place in the UK which doesn't seem to happen much in these kinds of books On the other hand the plot dragged especially in the early chapters If it had some editing to improve the pacing and fix some of the issues where the author tells us things rather than showing them this could be a fantastic read As it is it's only a kind of good read Such a shame because it has so much potential

    Keeps you readingThis is an unusual type of read one I was not too sure would keep my attention I mean a prepper​ story were the guy is not even a real prepper he's just worried about the what ifs Anyway it has a great story line and actually keeps you interested in the what if and whys Each character is uniue just as any group of actual survivors would be Great read with plenty of thought provoking moments

    I struggled to get through this book As mentioned by other reviewers the writing did not flow There was a lot of and then we discussed this in the narrative Events which could have been explained and detailed better seemed to be rushed over and the timeline I thought was a little to uick for the fall of society It's a shame as I enjoyed the 2 Zombie castle books which are much better written I'm uite surprised this series has such a high rating as I felt uite disappointed by the end

    Great idea to have all the electronics taken out but rather too many plot devices in that everyone you would need Just happens to turn up on a small Birmingham back streetCould also have done with a few view points of the other people and being a little detached from the lead character who got rather annoyingly repetitive after a while Some issues with the time line but over all manages to keep pretty factual if tricky to believe yet still a good read

    Well doneI really enjoyed this book It centers on an average neighborhood showing their efforts to make their way through a now powerless world The sun has knocked out all modern electrical systems computers communications systemsetc Now these folks have to band together to survive in their new world
