Author, Larry Landgraf introduces his book Into Autumn:
The economy of the United States has failed, government has shut down, and the grid has gone offline. No Internet, no TV, no utility services. There is rioting, killing, and chaos everywhere. You have no water and little food. You hear gunshots then banging at your door. You have no gun. What do you do? It is not a question of whether or not this will happen but when. Could you survive if it happened tomorrow? The lives of Lars Lindgren and Eileen Branson have been turned upside down. Follow their struggle; learn how they must change in order to survive.
I have read lots of dystopian/survival books and Larry’s book really impresses me. There are no zombies, no nuclear attacks or severe climatic changes. We really don’t know what caused the collapse of civilization in the U.S. of A.
Into Autumn is a detailed look at how a small handful of people struggle and survive to carve a new civilization out of unrelenting chaos. I am really impressed with the pace in Larry’s book, it is slow and even, there is a lot of development of characters and the settings where everything occurs. The action is tangible, the characters responses are quite realistic and very believable. Larry has a great eye for detail and he keeps his POV really clean. Into Autumn is a well-reasoned look at what it takes to survive a permanent catastrophe, when the government will never come to your aid. As an ex-boy scout, ex-military and working in construction for over twenty years there is a lot of good information here as food for thought.
Good news, there is a sequel in the works!
I love the book, but the handful of spelling errors allow me to award only 4.8 of 5 STARS!
