      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 [...]

      I love this series and book 4 was just as much of a pleasure as I was expecting. The writing has improved as the series progressed; and while I loved the action-packed gung-ho attitude of the first two books, at this point there is a lot more character development, personal interaction and emotional experiences between the characters. All the characters from previous books are present here (the ones who've made it alive to this point LOL) and I felt right at home with this motley crew of army me [...]

      A European, female perspective: I'm interested in prepping, but I am definitely no admirer of the USA and its corporation run government. As a Euro, you simply have to swallow hard and decide not to get irritated at the American exceptionalist outlook of the author. It's worth it, in my opinion, for anyone with an interest in prepping. Plot: This is where the strength of this series lies. How does a man with a prepping background take care of his family and neighbours after an EPI attack? Partly [...]

      This is an excellent series. It is well written, realistic, and even allows for some blue on blue shooting. On the whole, it addresses things that really could happen during a confusing and morally murky situation. In this book Jess is in an internment camp and in a bad way. She and some girls took action against a rapist and will now have to pay the price. Can Sarge and his team backed up by intel from Morgan and Thad save the day? Read the book to find out.

      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.

    • Gil T. says:

      So I jumped into the series at book 4 not knowing what has happened to create the situation the characters of the book are having to survive, but as the story progressed it was somewhat explained, so i didn't feel i had to go back and read the other books in the series. Out of curiousity I may read them, only because the survival skills taught in this book are detailed and worth learning. This book finds the survivors of what seems to be a grid shutdown getting by on what they can hunt or gather [...]

    • Wendi Yarborough says:

      Main character's viewpoint is getting tiresomeThis is the fourth book in the series and the opinions of the author come through more heavily in this book than the first three. He believes he's justified in anything he does and has a demeaning viewpoint of women in general (this came through clearly with the female guardsman). The whole series is written kind of strangely - lots of extemporaneous details and it didn't always flow well. That being said, I enjoy reading someone who has a different [...]

      Fourth book as good as the first three.

    • Vickii Bendit says:

      This series draws you into the world created by A. American. I can’t wait to begin the next one!

    • Tom Porter says:

      A great serriesSo much to think about, so much going on. Just like the real world most people are a holes. Read this.

    • Jordan Grossman says:

      This one took a step back towards the survival aspect. Much more info on finding food and the small struggles.

    • Nathan says:

      Just as good as the first 3! Now reading the 5th one and can't wait to finish series.

    • Connie says:

      Whoa, now these are getting close to simple chapter books. Just not the thriller the others have been. Still, I'm anxious to get to #5!

    • Tracey Love says:

      Number four in the series does not disappoint. Continuing to follow Morgan, his family, and his new community in their journey of survival as the nation falls apart is an exciting ride.

    • Anthoney says:

      Mr. American get write a female to save his life. That's not completely unheard of. He also has a hard time with the military. He even gets rank insignia wrong. Oak leaves for a Capt. Wrong.

      "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 seriesetreadssoftly/2013/08/ shetreadssoftly/2013/12/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 wicked ways at the refugee/detention ca [...]

    • Wfrazier says:

      Done with this one. This is the 4th book in a series, and they are becoming a bit repetitious. Three more to go and I'll read them all, but not as enjoyable as the start.

    • Carolyn says:

      Recently read all five books in this series. Basically each is a how-to of tips for post-apocalyptic survival woven together into storylines about a man (Morgan) and his family (wife and three daughters); a man (Thad) and a young girl (Jess) whose families have all died/been murdered; and a gnarly old ex-soldier (Sarge) with a small crew of other ex-soldiers. The titles really tell the essence of each book. In the first, Going Home, the country is subjected to the collapse of the entire power gr [...]

    • Sean says:

      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 he [...]

    • Sandra Wheeler says:

      I have read the whole series and can't wait for the next book. When I first saw this book, I thought Oh well, this is going to be a bloody horror book. But it was not written that way.It was horrid but not in a gory horror film way. But, its horror was in the facts that our government would do what they did to destroy our country. I don't want to spell out what they did as it will take so much away from the story. It was a Prepper type book but as I am interested in prepping, it just fit for me. [...]

    • Matthew says:

      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 amou [...]

      I was lucky enough to receive an advanced reading copy of Forsaking Home from First to Read, in exchange for an honest review. I normally love dystopian, end of the world books. It has been my favorite genre for at least a year and I'm still slightly obsessed with it. I should also mention that I have not read any of the other books in the Survivalist series. I didn't really enjoy Forsaking Home. It was definitely action packed, but for a good portion of the book I was playing catch up on who th [...]

    • Dale says:

      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 [...]

    • Steve says:

      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 [...]

    • Cheryl says:

      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 [...]

    • Sabrina says:

      Another truly excellent book in an outstanding series. The experiences of Morgan, Thad, Sarge and the men continue in many challenges, dangerous situations and heart-stopping encounters. This fourth book in such an incomparable series stands up and keeps marching on.With so much to do (to simply survive) and a lot to be done to keep everyone safe, all of the families and friends try their hardest to stick together and overcome all odds.The writing and the general rhythm of this story advances as [...]

    • Diane says:

      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 [...]

    • Pam Shelton-anderson says:

      There was a lot of how-to, some of which was interesting on the surface (that is how you make soap) but so much of it and in such detail was kind of draggy. The events in the camp seemed a bit predictable. This appears to be the 4th book and I can see there is another after it. Great. Now I need to find out what happens to these guys. Will Sarge be OK? Is Thad going to find happiness again. And Mel wait I don't like Mel at all so I don't care about her. Let her fall to the side of the road.

    • Jonathan Barnett says:

      Mediocre at best. If this series were a TV show this book could only have been made into one episode. The plotline dragged its way through countless boring situations that had no bearing on the story along with timelines that never seem to make any sense. One day the characters collect an abundance of food the next day they are starving because they haven't eaten in days This series could have been stopped at book 1 and been a decent stand alone novel but the series continues to slog along witho [...]
