Recent Comments "The Visitors"
Book 5 of the 299 series (Reiterated warning - this should be "chapter" 5 - these "books" are not self contained and do not have real start/end points)This was the weakest book yet.All the criticisms of the prior books continue, but are magnified. I find the sections with the visitors at the end wholly unconvincing. This is important, because it is the direction that the entire series is going. (The turning of the entire community post a collapse in to a "patriot" base in some sort of "anti-gove [...]
The writing and story both continue to improve as the series progresses. I paid closer attention to the hypothetical aspects of the collapse. Specifically which government or business services remain in place. Some of those, like reduced law enforcement make sense. Some of the black market bartering I had to accept on faith.That brings up a small complaint I have. We hear from the author "this sh*t is real", but clearly the sequence of events are not (yet?) real. There's a vast difference betwee [...]
I tried, honestly, but the main character is just evolving into a bigger and bigger megalomaniac. The (civilian) Military Contractor, The Lawyer/Prosecutor, The Judge, and now the Secret Police all in a single character. It's exhausting and completely unbelievable. The constant positioning, the constant planning to gain more power and influence, this book, more than any other in the series has really put me off.I appreciate what must have been a great effort to research material for the book, bu [...]
The Visitors chronicles the ongoing efforts of the community of Pierce Point to become a Patriot stronghold. The "sheepdogs" of the community are pressed into service to remove thieves and cut throats from their (AOI) area of operation. They were now self-described "constables" of the community, not having any legal authority but their own. Enforcing these rules bring on more issues for the community at large. Towards the end of the book "The Visitors" makes itself known. Special Forces Ted make [...]
i really love this series. The only thing that would make me love it more would be if they would focus more on the core group and less on the ancillary groups. The parts that keep me reading have nothing to do with the government groups or the farm that up to this point has been disconnected from the story.
Grant continues to lead Pierce Point into being a Patriot stronghold. Politics, legalities, and planning factors into this book with a special visit from Special Forces Ted. Things are about to heat up
Another strong set-up for the next major event book in the series.Some interesting moral struggles worked through.
Lots of good stuff happening, but I must admit near the end the recurring angst made me a lil bored and irritated.
