    I am only partially through the book and I will be a critic. Since I downloaded this book I was nearly late for work. I only got a few hours of sleep and have been oiling my small collection of defensive tools. Yes, if you have the digital version there appears to be spacing errors. Having read MANY digital books, to include college texts, when the printed word is sent to a Kindle the spacing is ALWAYS messed up. Go download the Army's Sniper manual, you will believe Equinox is letter perfect. Poor Man's James Bond? DON'T DOWNLOAD THAT!!! Waste of money on digital. Last but not least, if you haven't published a book or an article hold your critiques. There will always be the trolls that will complain about a book or a youtube video about amateur radio but have NEVER tried it themselves. Mr. Dennis, I haven't finished the book but e-mail me when the sequel or spin off comes out.

    In the next book I think the FCC commissioner should be mind controlled by the locusts -- then he can proceed to fix issues with incentive licensing, HOAs, and the ARRL Band Plan.

    I just downloaded the book. I like post apocalyptic books and many have ham radio operators featured in them.

    I just finished the book. For those that are stuck on typos, to bad your mind can read it. I had a problem with the rank handed out willy nilly until I remembered history. During two wars Americans formed militias and gave themselves the corresponding rank or were given the corresponding rank befit the number of troops they recruited and mobilized with. Overall I liked the book after remembering that history can repeat itself. A question for those that may question this post: Which would you choose? Live free or die fighting OR flee and always wonder what Bravery would feel like.

    Well as a veteran, and a bit of a loose cannon,hihi, I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

    I just finished the book it was ok. I read a lot of post apocalyptic survival books. The XYL calls my obsession with those books wishful thinking...She's right!

    Don't be stealing my life!! You sound just like me and your XYL sounds like mine. LOL!! 22 years Army/Army Reserve with deployments to Bosnia, Kosovo, and Iraq (2). The post apocalyptic books are not fiction. They are just non-religious prophesy. Prepare for the worst and if it doesn't come you have a couple of years of freeze dried food for the grand kids.

    Bought if for the kindle, read it, liked it. Just would have loved in the epilogue for us to know what exactly happened to the remaining Locusts forces, were they exterminated, did they return home, imprisoned under heavy guard, etc...
