Survivors by James Wesley, Rawles

SURVIVORS by James Wesley, Rawles

If I had to describe this book in one word I’d call it prophetic. With what is happening in our country right now economically this book is right on target—and yes, it’s a thriller, but it’s also downright scary.

We’ve been taught that history repeats itself, the author proves it through the quotes he uses at the beginning of each chapter. Many characters are introduced and followed as they attempt to survive a world that is turned upside down. Each person has his or her own strengths which contribute to survival: faith in God; ability to fix and create from what’s around; knowing what to gather and store; how to use and care for firearms; how to plant and grow food; how to organize others and much, more. 

One thing I found refreshing is the Christian element running throughout. Many of the main characters relied on their faith and that's what kept the going.

My only criticism is the book seemed to end abruptly and I’m guessing there is a sequel that will answer some of the questions left unanswered.

Survivors is well-written and a definite page turner.

As a P.S., I'm nearly through with a study on Revelation which made this novel even more realistic.
