Review - The Borrowed World

The Borrowed World: A Novel of Post-Apocalyptic Collapse (Volume 1) - Franklin Horton

One of the better TEOTWAWKI books.  Great plot line, believable characters who are knowledgeable but there is a story here- not just a prepper's guideline list (although there is a list written by the protagonist for his wife and children to follow).

 

The were a couple typos but nothing glaring- better than some traditionally published novels.  The one thing that got me, that cost this book a fifth star was at the beginning of a the novel one of the characters was nearly killed by someone wielding a lug wrench, and towards the end of the novel, the situation is recounted by the protagonist as someone wielding a crowbar.  It bothered me because the rest of the book was so good. 

 

I will be looking for the next book (I wouldn't call this a serial, but it did end on a cliffhanger).
