Robert Williams didn’t expect an early honorable release from his mission, but upon his return home, he sees the reason for the surprise decision. Unemployment, rampant violence, and frequent food shortages have put the United States on the brink of another civil war. As the threads of society unravel, the Williams family must adapt to drastic changes as the long-foretold gathering begins to take place.
I am always really interested in end of the world books, and this one did not disappoint. The over all story is pretty intense. The perspective changes from 4 different characters. Robert, his father, his mother, and the US Secretary of State. In the beginning it was difficult to figure out who each person was, and get your mind into which character you are reading. After you get to know them each a bit better it becomes easier, but for some reason that stopped me from attaching to much to the story. The ending more than makes up for it, and redeemed the book for me. Overall, I liked it, but didn’t love it.
I give it 3 stars out of 5.
