Time to pop up the popcorn.
I’m on a bit of a prepper fix right now. I’ve read five different prepper-fiction novels (I’ll soon post reviews on my favs), all following a post-apocalyptic storyline.
Pass me some of that popcorn if it’s ready.
Today, I want to introduce you to an exciting novel about survival called, The Long Road to Survival: The Prepper Series, by Lee Bradford.
First, a quick admonition. When I go to the movies, I go for the pure enjoyment of it. I’m not interested in learning French through sub-titles or watching a depressing narrative about someone’s crappy life. No, I grab my overpriced bag of popcorn (heavy on the butter, thank you) and jumbo soda—even though I know this will inevitably cause a premature restroom visit during the movie’s climax—and I get lost in the story and/or the characters. I call these “popcorn-movies.” For me, they often involve some sort of world-wide apocalypse. They won’t win any awards by the snooty Academy, because they’re purely made for entertainment and kick-ass fun.
The Long Road to Survival is a popcorn-book!
The premise is simple: After terrorists nuke several ports in America, a man and his prepper father-in-law race to Atlanta to gather his wife and daughter before nuclear radiation kill them. All the while, a gang of thugs are chasing them. And of course, echoing a theme explored in Stone Age, even though the father-in-law has prepped for everything, most things don’t go as planned. This book follows their perilous journey.
It’s an exciting thrill ride that you can read in one sitting and it’ll probably have you begging for the next one (Long Road to Survival: The Prepper Series (Book 2)), which happens to have just come out. Even if you’ve not read much prepper-fiction, this one is your ticket.
Best of all, for the next two days, it’s only $0.99 on Amazon (HERE).
In the next Apocalyptic Update, I’ll cover one of these fine prepper novels: Walking in the Rain, The Borrowed World, or perhaps another.
