I've been reading the dark tower for about six months. I've been stalling out midway through the 5th book. It's mostly great but there's been a few sections that were a little dry

As far as Patriots is concerned....ugh, it was hard to get through it. I know it holds value as far as survival/prepping tips and techniques, but as a literary work of fiction it is a painful disaster. If anyone wants my copy just send me a few bucks for shipping and its yours.

The last really great novel I read was D.J. Molles's The Remaining. And that book was AMAZING. Its actually a series of three relatively short books and the writing, storyline, and characters are excellent. The thrill and suspense factors are sky-high chapter after chapter. Well worth your time.

I have to say though, if you only read one more novel for the rest of your life, it absolutely MUST be John Ross's masterpiece Unintended Consequences. This should be required reading for every freedom-loving gunowner in America. It is a novel but actually contains more facts in it than some non-fiction books. I have read a TON of books and honestly I have yet to find one that even comes close to Unintended Consequences. It is the gold standard that I compare every other book to. Good luck finding a copy for under $200 dollars though. And no, you can't borrow mine.

$200!?! Dang! Hmm I may have to consider selling my copy. The book was very good but I could have done without the porno sections.

Currently reading Wool Omnibus and finding it to be an entertaining post apocalyptic dystopian tale.

Just ordered 'Enemies Foreign and Domestic'.

I finished Patriots (loved it) a few weeks ago and had been meaning to order a new book.

I love apocalypse fiction and always read a good deal of reviews before I buy because I don't care for the uber-macho rambo type stories that depict the female members as weak sheep instead of being assets to a group (Patriots did a great job of diverse characters and I couldn't praise it enough for that).

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Kaligaran, if you like the first Bracken book you'll love the second one. Women are not weak in the Bracken books.

Some other suggestions..

Apocalypse Law 1,2, & 3 by John Grit.

Joe Nobody's Holding Their Own series.

77 Days in September

All of these are in the survival genre.

For some normal good guy vs. the bad guys I'd suggest Stephen Hunter. I'd start with the earlier books as they are chronological. The movie "Shooter" was loosely based off "Point of Impact".

Read this thread, its chock full of suggestions!

And yeah, Bracken's Enemies series features a girl as one of the main characters and she's far from weak or feeble.

+ for Unintended Consequences. Let's feed the pigs - plenty of fodder available.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

@Jonnyt16, I had looked at some of the suggestions in this thread. A few of the reviews on amazon describing some of the characters didn't meet my 'requirements'.

Thanks everyone! Just added more books to my Amazon wishlist!

"The Road" is especially chilling. It's not a matter of if you'll die, but when. Definitely not the manly SHTF situation people are dreaming of, but probably more likely.

Just finished the James Cook Zombie series..."This shattered land" and "No easy hope" Very good...I'd recommend.

Also in the Zombie genre...just read "Apocalypse Z - The beginning of the end" I liked it a lot.

I'm about half way through "Going Home" good survival, apocalypse book.

The last couple Books I read were

World War Z
Patriots
Survivors
Founders

World War Z is awesome, the movie will probably ruin it. I just love how it describes how each country would react to the zombie virus.

Patriots got me hooked on prepping, It can be a bit too religious at times for my taste, but its a story that reads like a manual. I went back and highlighted pages to help with what I need and why. If you see our country heading to an economic collapse, you MUST read this book.

Survivors is just as good as Patriots, same story line just told from different views. So you get different views from people that are not just extreme preppers like the ones in the first book. People who see the collapse coming but didnt get a chance to get off the grid before it happened.

Founders is also along the same story line as Patriots, but goes back to giving more details about the characters in the first book. Its more about what happens after we have already dealt with the collapse and are trying to rebuild and stop the oppression of the UN.

I'm looking for another book, something like Patriots.

Hmm I'll have to check out Survivors. Enemies Foreign and Domestic came in the mail today (yes I read paperbacks not ebooks lol) so I'll start that tonight.

Socaliente, if you find something like Patriots, please post it.

Ok guys, I am about 250 pages into Enemies: Foreign and Domestic.

I know this book was published 10 years ago but it's eff'n creepy how much the first 100 pages or so seemed like it was non-fiction written yesterday about our currently political climate.
The language used, the government 'press-releases' and the media quotes almost seem like carbon copies of links I've found posted up here on Calguns in recent months.

So much so that it almost made it hard to read b/c it scared the beejeebus out of me....

Totally.

Now if we only had the balls to do what the citizens in the book did.

Yeah, I said it.

$200?! Shoot I can't count the times I had intended to put it up for trade on this or another forum, hoping to get $30 worth of gun junk in trade... Hmm perhaps I should set my sights a little higher... anyone want to trade 1000 rounds of 5.56 for a mint copy of Unintended Consequences?

I read the first two, but I'm not willing to spend the money that they want for each little book. Some of the main characters actions were a little as well.

Price it at $3-4 and I'll download each story. But I'm not paying $10+

To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway. Next in line is The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway. I'm obsessed with his writing and this won't be the first time I've read either of these books. Like a good movie, a good book never gets old.

It might be a good movie for what it is, but do not expect it to be anything like the book as far as storytelling goes.

That's the impression I got from the previews which is too bad because I live the book.

I'm currently reading the Deadlocked series by AR Wise. Parts 1-4 are short but very intense. Parts 5 and 6 are good, but starting to fade.

Lights Out - Decent read, it was too predictable at times though. The best part was when Susan was shot with the Barrett, those who have read the book understand.

The Flashman series is great! You should also read "Quartered Safe Out Here" by GM Fraser, his tale of his service in Burma WW2, also the “McAuslan” series aka the dirtiest private in the army. Great author, love his works!

A real survival story: "Long Way Back to the River Kwai" by Loet Velmans. Mr. Velmans was a Dutch Jew whose family fled from Holland to the Dutch East Indies when Germany invaded Holland in 1940. He was drafted into the Dutch East Indies army and captured when the Japanese invaded Java in 1942. He was sent to work on the railway in Thailand that was immortalized in the movie 'Bridge Over the River Kwai' He survived (barely) and eventually moved to the U.S. with his wife Edith who wrote the counterpart to his book "Edith's Story" about her travails as a Dutch Jew hiding from the Germans in WW2 Holland. Both are worthy reads.

I thought "The Passage" was fantastic although the survivors could not hold onto a firearm without dropping them off buildings or down wells. I recently finished the sequal "The Twelve", equally good and highly recommended.

3 weeks ago: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six - John Clark leads an ultra elite anti terrorism unit (audio book).

2 weeks ago: Knox's Irregulars - very Christian capitalists vs very evil Muslim communists on a colony world with 22nd century tech (Kindle). A good gorilla war story but heavy on the bible verses.

1 week ago: Starfire - A very-very smart Galactic Marine Captain and his men investigate a missing super battleship (Kindle).

This week: Fey - sequel to Starfire and the further civilian adventures of a very-very smart former Marine captain turned professional poker player (Kindle). A bit weird but very good.

Currently: Predation - Human space navy and marines invade enemy system/base (Kindle). The bad guys are an intelligent bipedal super nasty meat eating cross between a crocodile and a Kimodo Dragon.

It is a series with many contributing authors like David Weber and Virginia DeMarce and has some 17 odd books to it.

A West Virginia mining town, circa 2000 AD, is mysteriously transported to Germany in 1632. For the non-history buffs, its right in the middle of the Thirty Years' War.

Its fun reading for when you need a mental break
