The way it is written, it s so possible for it to actually happen any day. To believe our government would be involved in something like this is staggering but true. With all the rumors of FEMA camps, and martial law and etc. We would be foolish to not believe , at least a little bit, that this could happen.
As I read this series, I noticed dozens of other books put out at about the same time with the same story line. I decided to be prepared is the most sensible thing to do. Whether and EMP ever happens or not. If you are interested in the next life after Marshall law, read these books. See all 5 questions about Going Home…. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews.

One thing that quickly becomes apparent is that survivalist books and those who write them tend to be of a particular political bent. It is stronger in some than in others, but let's just say there are not a lot of Obama voters who write books about how the government is going to collapse and the key to survival is stashing guns and silver.
American" is clearly making a statement with the very choice of his yes, could be "her" but how likely is that? Going Home seems intended to be a wake-up call of sorts, but the author doesn't really get up on a soapbox until the end. Instead, the first part of the book is about Morgan Carter's trip home after an EMP device shuts down his car and the power grid.
He is in rural Florida when it happens — setting survivalist novels in Florida or North Carolina seems to be awfully popular. Certainly it's easier to explain someone carrying a gun around, as opposed to a survivalist novel set in New York or Maryland. Morgan Carter is a prepper, and the chapters with Morgan are narrated from a first-person POV, so he goes into great detail describing the contents of his bug-out bag, the equipment he has, his survival tactics as he begins hiking home.
Later he meets up with a naive college girl, another shotgun-toting survivor named Thad obligatory Big Black Friend , and then some ex-army guys, and the novel becomes a little disjointed as it alternates between their viewpoints as they go their separate ways. Mostly there is a lot of talk about gear and prepper basics, obviously intended to enlist the audience's interest.
There are some deadly encounters with the usual sorts of low-lives whom you'd expect to turn orc when the grid goes down. As a survival story, it's not quite as compelling as One Second After or Alas, Babylon or Dies the Fire because all those books besides being somewhat better written are about the survival of communities, whereas Going Home is mostly a collection of individual survival stories.
However, it does illustrate some of the issues an individual might have, being caught on one's own in a SHTF scenario, though the author makes it a lot easier for his protagonists by letting them all start out heavily armed. Now, as I noted, a certain mistrust of the government and antipathy for dependent city-dwellers is at the core of most of these survivalist novels. American" keeps this in check for most of the book, with Morgan making only a few comments now and then about screwed the unprepared are going to be and the observation that people turn "collectivist" awfully fast when they run out of stuff.
The end of the book, however, reveals who the true culprits behind the EMP device were. Well, President Obama is never mentioned by name, but let's just say this is a book that will appeal to those who believe in the NWO's black helicopters and FEMA camps. View all 8 comments. Apr 21, Scott rated it liked it. As a reader of a few post-apocalyptic novels, I'd have to say this is one of the best and worst I've read. I couldn't put it down and couldn't stand reading it all at the same time.
I really liked the storyline: people, in varying degrees of post-disaster preparedness, running the gauntlet to get home after an electromagnetic event wipes out the power grid. There is a lot of action and violence but not to the point of being gratuitous. The characters, both good and bad, are well drawn and they ea As a reader of a few post-apocalyptic novels, I'd have to say this is one of the best and worst I've read.
The characters, both good and bad, are well drawn and they easily allowed me to take a rooting interest in their success or failure. Now for the bad stuff.
As other reviewers have noted, the writing style is horrible. I found the constant changing of tense unnerving. The frequent grammatical and typographical errors took away from the overall flow of the story. I think a third of the book could have been edited out without detracting from the story at all. At times, the author goes into super hyper minute details that just bogs the story down. And then there's the 'product placements'. It was like reading a commercial!
When the main character finally makes it home, he 'went into our bedroom and lay down on the bed in my clothes. It felt so good, that Tempur-Pedic mattress'. I had to laugh. C'mon, enough already. View 1 comment. May 26, Mike Whitworth rated it it was amazing. First, let me state that there are grammatical errors, sometimes to the point of distraction.
However, I loved the book. The story is gripping and, at times, hard to put down. There is a lot of detail about the gear carried and used by the protagonist. From that I learned a few things. I gave the book five stars because I am very much looking forward to reading the sequel.Going Home Lyrics: Many times in my in child hood when weve traveled so far / By nightfall how weary I'd grown / Fathers arms would slip around me and gently he'd say / My child were going home.
