This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In the latest survivalist thriller from founder of survivalblog.com and New York Times bestselling author James Wesley, Rawles, two expat families struggle for their very survival in the midst of a global economic collapse.
When the United States suffers a major socioeconomic collapse, a power vacuum sweeps the globe. A newly radicalized Islamic government rises to power in Indonesia, invades the Philippines, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, and finally northern Australia. No longer protected by American military interests, Australia must repel an invasion alone.
In the thick of these political maneuvers, an American family of missionaries living in the Philippines and a Texan petroleum engineer in Australia must face the fear of being strangers in a world in flux. Are their relatives back home healthy and safe? Will they ever see them again?
In its depiction of the authentic survivalist skills and techniques needed to survive a global socioeconomic meltdown, Expatriates is as informative as it is suspense-filled.
The Author needs a good editor
Too much detail about gun types, ammunition and military vehicles (unnecesary detail). I am sure the the survivalists out there would disagree. The story is good but sometimes I got the feeling I was reading a manual. The chapters are also split strangely - as if to find extra space for all the quotes the author wanted to stuff in. Or maybe it was all inserted to make a 150 page book into 300 pages?
It's all too bad- a good editor could have helped Mr. Rawles develop this short story into a really good novel.
Not a bad book
I definitely find the author to be immensely talented. However his books while entertaining are starting to sound the same. I personally would love to read a book relating the experience of a minority individual who has to evacuate a major American city and evade not only inner city thugs but also rural folks who harbor racial and ethnic animosities. However,I have to admit that the author to does not make it a practice to disparage minorities or engage in presenting blatant stereotypes. I also find his expression of very deep Christian faith to be inspiring. overall The book was worth the money and in many instances quite instructional.
