This novel is a good ready for anyone into Survivalism or anyone who just likes a good apoplectic novel.

"More narrative than novel."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Unfortunately novelisation has given way to fundamentalist conservatism. What could have been an interesting addition to survivalist fiction becomes extreme GunPorn with little character development beyond what calibre they're carrying and their world view of those nasty Globalists. I hoped for more but was able to finish it.

Description

America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse-the stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city. As hordes of refugees and looters pour out of the cities, a small group of friends living in the Midwest desperately tries to make their way to a safe-haven ranch in northern Idaho. The journey requires all their skill and training since communication, commerce, transportation and law enforcement have all disappeared. Once at the ranch, the group fends off vicious attacks from outsiders and then looks to join other groups that are trying to restore true Constitutional law to the country. Patriots is a thrilling narrative depicting fictional characters using authentic survivalist techniques to endure the collapse of the American civilization. Reading this compelling, fast-paced novel could one day mean the difference between life and death.
