My thought and feelings.

Book Review

I just completed reading Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse by James Wesley Rawles. This is one of the best books I have read in a while. It is not for everyone. If you are of the thought that the current system we live in is flawed then you will absolutely love the book.  As stated in the description on, and others the book is a manual on how to survive. Survive not only in a SHTF world but in a time when normal services are not available. Yes it is very much on the extreme side by the standards of many, by others it is a glimpse of times to come.

Patriots is a very fast paced book that can keep you going until the end. I found it hard to put down but as for most of us life did get in the way.  I don’t want to say much about the story so as not to ruin it for others. A co-worker is reading it, once he finishes it I am sure we will get into a LONG conversation over the happenings in the book. Fortunately we are of like mind and I am sure will get off into the weeds when the discussion starts.

Also, there is a STRONG moral thread throughout the book. Religion is very strong, it shows the need for faith. Family and friends are shown to be invaluable. It’s just a good book.

Bottom line is the book is thought provoking. It is able to weave in current events that really make you wonder.
