from Lucifer's Hammer.

I guess that I am gonna have to give that book a try again. I got through the first 75 or 80 pages before I had to put it down. The plot seemed "slow" and I just couldn't seem ot "get into it".

I'll try to stick with it a little longer.

Give it a chance man ... you will miss the cannibal army unit the protagonist has to fight! :egrin:


Just got a clearing in my schedule (and some much needed time off) so this book is going to the head of the list of "stuff to read". Probably start it tomorrow.

A "must read" for those who carry a handgun for their defense:

299 Days Glen Tate ... -299-days/
Amazon Book Summary:

Meet Grant Matson: lawyer, father, suburbanite husband who awakens to the fragility of modern society and embarks on a personal journey that introduces him to a world of self-reliance and liberation. 299 Days: The Preparation, the first book in the 299 Days series, depicts the inner struggles Grant must face as he exists in a social system he recognizes as unsustainable and on the verge of collapse, but one in which he has built his life around. What begins as a return to his roots, self-sufficiency and independence, becomes a full blown move to prepare for what may come. Engaging, insightful and a bit suspenseful, follow Grant’s transition from a self-perceived “sheeple” to a full-blown “prepper.” Will his fears come true? Is he an extremist? What if nothing happens? What if something does?

great book to intro someone into prepping.

Also enjoyed Essential Liberty by Rob Olive ... 28&t=80432

no so much prepping as a story around firearm confiscation..
