If so, is it any good?

Update:  Finished with the series.  Overall, a good, entertaining read.  Lots of good ideas and some that made me scratch my head.  Sometimes the characters did something that you wouldn't do in real life but did it because of idealism or something.  I can see why they did it, but no, they wouldn't have done it in real life, at least not if they didn't want to jeopardize themselves.  

Also, it seemed like the author would put some writing into a certain character but it didn't really fit in with the rest of the story or would leave it hanging for quite awhile before tying it back into the story later.  You'd almost forget about them.  

Overall, I'd give it an 8-9/10.

Thanks.  Picked up nine of the books at the antique store today for $20.  Have to get the second book, though.  I'm halfway through the first one now and I'll have to wait for the second one to continue.  It's not bad so far.

One of my favorite prepper SHTF story lines. I have met the author a few times, really good guy. His wife wrote the "Great State" series - pretty good also. They both have a podcast which is a good listen.

Listened to it on audio and it’s one of the better SHTF series I’ve listened to or read.

Have heard good things about it.   The only negative was someone saying it could have been 1 whole book, not a series.

I was into the series at first.
Then the concluding book, where the author “Glenn Tate” says, talking about rebuilding, why don’t we put all these now out of work government administrators, who previously oppressed the little people, in charge of manufacturing and retail?  Obviously in his statist mind (he is just upset his statist side isn’t the one in power, ultimately), he still thinks government people are the best and brightest.  He thinks they are so talented and knowledgeable about running a tight organization.  Clearly he is detached from reality, and he’s more than a little too much into his little fantasy story.
Well that was just pants on head retarded.  And I’m sorry I spent any money on the kindle downloads

meh

The mans podcast is well grounded,  don't get wrapped around the axle over a small part in a book series.

The series was pretty good until it began to transition into the action/military part. It was here that the series became a chore to read and i really lost interest but forced myself to finish it.  A Great State was a better series imo.  


On a slightly different note their podcast was really good until they revamped it last year. The show became so corny sounding that I unsubscribed as it was unbearable to listen to.
