Ok, my OCD led me to finish this series. (This is the latest book and I think it ends the series…although there's plenty of wiggle room for more). This 4th book in the series is better than the 3rd, so the the series ends on a "strong" note - but in my opinion the series overall is only average. The writing is plain, the characters one dimensional, the plot arc is bland, and there's only a modicum of an entertainment factor. This last book tries to close the story arc (with only a limited amount ...more

"Food is freedom. Control the food, control the people. While a lot of people don't see it that way, if you think about our current situation, it really applies. How many people do you think have gone to camps because they are hungry? Humans lived for tens of thousands of years before grocery stores, but take them out of the equation and folks panic." (pg 23).

With the collapse of the power grid, communications, and food and water supply for reasons that continue to remain unknown, thousands of p

Forsaking Home by A. American is a recommended (highly if you are reading the whole series) conclusion to the survivalist series that includes Going Home, Surviving Home, and Escaping Home. Forsaking Home is the fourth book in the series.

For those following the series, Morgan, his family, and all the other characters are back on their trek to survival among lawless citizens and the DHS continues their obscenely wick

I don't have a long review of this book. I will be honest and say it wasn't my favorite. I received this book as an ARC, and thought I would take a chance on an author I haven't read. Realizing that I am coming into this series on book four, I didn't let that influence my review.
What mainly got me on this is 1) the author's pseudonym and 2) the I'm a better survivalist than you attitude.

Now I realize that author's need/want pseudonyms (I've not used one yet, but that day may come). But to choose
I like this series. It is one of the better post apocalyptic series. It feels real. I know that if I was stuck I would want to hang with someone like Morgan. He is a survivalist. There is some language used in this book. I have not problems with language when it is used tastefully and for the purpose of the story. Which it is done in this book. I mean come on the world is falling about and people are being locked up by the government. You are probably not going to be very happy and might say a f ...more
I got this book from Penguin's First Reads program. Like the previous books in this series, I enjoyed it very much. The storyline is good and the characters are well defined and written. We have some new characters added to the mix. I hope that this is a continuing series as I would like to see what happens with Morgan and friends next.

Why. Why did I force my way through four of these poorly written pieces of prepper fan fic propaganda. The author (middle name must be "Male" >sarcasm< ) couldn't write a woman if he had one of the many weapons he loves describing held to his head. I suspect he is not knowledgeable about the military either but i only have experience being a woman so can't comment. The huge variance in tone from sweeping generalizations to "list making" and the sudden insertions of anti- Obama, anti - libe ...more
This 4th installment felt like a departure from the first 3 in the series. It was slow moving and did not provide the same amount of "what would you do if you were in this situation" opportunities as the rest of the series... not even close. I found myself relying on my past experiences with the characters in order to color in the gray areas a little better as there is very little fleshing out done even with the main characters.

An opportunity was wasted when the female badass was introduced and
A summary of this book.

I am man. Man is good. Man better than woman. Woman weak. Guns good. Men with guns who agree with us are good. Men with guns who disagree with us are bad. Anyone without guns is hopeless. We have an endless supply of materials. Whenever we need something, we magically 'remember' about a set of the said resource we stashed away once upon a time.

The writing and ideas in this series became worse as it went on. My OCD made me finish it, but I am glad it's over because even th

Forsaking Home

wow I love this Books. I believe that this could happen, get food and guns.
find a place to go to if u can gas to. I hope the story isn't done. I what to read more.
Finished the 4 book Survivalist series - good stuff for those interested in the Prepper / Survivalist / Post-Apocalyptic genre. All in all a worthwhile read. The scenario is a bit overly anti-government with too-polar bad guys and good guys. The characters are mostly pretty well done except for Sarge and his team who are caricatures. The author throws in enough factual survival techniques to make it enjoyable. It kept me reading, and looking forward to more so I recommend the series.
Ok I'm a zombie apocalypse junkie, this books is a "tea party's" survivalist wet dream. Zombies and government bad guys combine in this very graphic zombie end of the world scenario .
He really could wrapped this up in the last book. If you've read the others your know what to expect. I was sorry to see that the one woman character introduced this time that involved in tactical situations had to be some redneck ( not my word) jackass. The women folk never impressed me. They were still asking stupid questions and not fully realizing that the world was fucked. I hate what happened to Jess in the last book.

That being said. I liked the seris, mainly the first 2. These are preppe

4th in the series another excellent read from A. American. Country in turmoil after an EMP set off by the government.

Enjoyable story if you're a fan of the post-apocalyptic survival genre.
Jim W
Wish there was a 5th book in the series

as always A American provided an excellent ending to a good series
I enjoyed the ride and would recommend to anyone interested in survivalist reality.
Loved the series. I hope he continues writing.
Another good read in the series.
Great series with a relatively happy ending considering we're talking apocalypse here. Definite recommendation for the survivalist apocalypse genre.
Nick Susie
This was a big improvement over book three in the series. Enjoyed it.
Brad T.
Love this series. I hope this is not the end.
Helen Brumfield
I won this book here on Goodreads, and glad I did! This book isn't so out of the realm of what could really happen. I'm looking forward to another series wink, wink!! My husband is reading it now! Not sure if it's a rumor, but I heard it may be a TV series, if so, can't wait!!
Scott Stallings
Perfect climax to an incredible series. I'm going to miss these characters, especially sarge, Thad and Morgan. I highly recommend this book, but start with the first in the series and watch it develop.
4.5 stars. The action picked up the from that cheesy cliff hanger ending that was inflicted upon us in book 3. A very enjoyable read, providing good closure for the series.
Neil Evridge
Great read just like the previous three in the series. I love this post-apocalyptic prepper genre.
Mia Michalek
