The first of several translations of Survivors was released in May More importantly, the trouble with writing about the present day is that it overtakes you too quickly. Huntington House Pub Availability: In his Introductory note to SurvivorsRawles stated: Thank God this is over with. Besidesthe fact that he needs to fire or hire an editor due to the never ending errors it’s unrealistic one dementional caracters.

Our day to day lives can be very abruptly changed by an economic collapse just as horrificly as they could be by a major terrorist attack. I learned that reasonable people will stockpile pre quarters.

There are chapters stuffed with “how tos” on everything from blood transfusion to farming. The author is a survivalist, and he clearly has thought this whole thing through, from very detailed passages about guns to medicine, food, energy, clothing, home defense, travel, the rule of law, and on and on and on. You lose ATMs and gas stations. It is total garbage. Have a guaranteed source of clean water, uncontaminated food, and safe shelter? I still give this book rawls stars because it was, after a fashion, both entertaining and informative, but it was like the author was trying to keep his rabid Euro-phobia and Red-baiting impulses in check for the first few hundred pages and then he couldn’t hold it in anymore.

I have acquired a draft of actual proofreading notes from the editor of Patriots. I can’t remember the last time I used the word “yikes” in a real conversation.

I’m not a survivalist. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Rawles authored four sequels in the Patriots series. It is not possible to go into too much detail on this matter. I didn’t count the number of times he talked of his characters doing something like: The author is a former Army soldier and that comes out with all the military speak and jargon and operations planning. It’s just not very interesting. None of them are really distinguishable paatriots one another beyond a few simply-described traits: The story takes us from an economic meltdown and collapse of the US Government and society itself, one of a number of possible scenarios that the protagonists prepared for, all the way to a Civil War to throw off a UN puppet tyrannical government and the eventual jamez of the United States.

It was a little too list heavy for me. The characters were a bit too stereotypical This book should appeal to survivalists and militia-types. I am interested in any recommendations others might have of a novel about possible futures where completely normal people attempt to survive a global collapse.

While the story continued janes be disappointing and predictable, the initially held out hope that the practical aspects of the novel would shine through to make the book a useful addition to my collection. Because one day you could see it confiscated by the government or stolen by neighbours Well, at times, the book does get a little too preachy. Knowing he’s a conservative Christian libertarian, I expected a big dose of hatin’ on Obama and probably a bunch of atheist liberals getting what’s coming to them, but in fairness, the author mostly keeps the right wing vitriol in check until the latter part of the book.


Set in the near future midst hyperinflation and a catastrophic global economic collapsePatriots tells the story of a group of survivalists mames flee riots and chaos in metropolitan Chicago to a survivalist retreat that they have prepared near Bovill, Idaho.

I wanted to finish it but I can’t. This one doesn’t do that. And what is up with the author’s name?

Fourteen years ago, when I first left the military, I did a lot of reading and research on the militia movement in the United States. This book is one of my favorite Scary future pqtriots because I don’t really see us that far off.

Lots of details on how to get through the apocalypse and battle mutant Nazis at the same time, but his work was weeley least fun. As a lot of other people have said, the format for this book is really odd. How long before they show up at your place to make you share? For pages at a time, the book reads like a technical manual. Jan 19, Jack rated it really liked it.

I recommend that the black guy be married, so that he will not appear to be a threat to the men in the Group. The editing is poor and the time line is messed up. After reading The Turner DiariesI was not interested in pages of paranoid ranting about patirots Aryan race and the ascension of Nordic Man. He has been described by journalists as the “conscience of survivalism.

He supports abolition of modern slavery in the world.
