    good writing overcomes a boggy plot but barely I really enjoyed the Jakarta Pandemic, but Perseid, not so much I still enjoy Konkoly s narrative characters, and dialogue his writing skills can t be questioned But The Perseid Collapse just bogs down in to many places And I don t mean where the book delves into weapons and military arcana in a prepper based post apocalyptic novel there are going to be pages upon pages about weapons, it s a central story line to the genre But the endless pe good writing overcomes a boggy plot but barely I really enjoyed the Jakarta Pandemic, but Perseid, not so much I still enjoy Konkoly s narrative characters, and dialogue his writing skills can t be questioned But The Perseid Collapse just bogs down in to many places And I don t mean where the book delves into weapons and military arcana in a prepper based post apocalyptic novel there are going to be pages upon pages about weapons, it s a central story line to the genre But the endless permutations about the route my lord, I ve never been to the east coast but I feel I can find my way just fine around Maine and Massachusetts just from reading the unending conversations about what route to take And the way Alex, Ed, and Charlie assess every building, passing car, and tree for multiple paragraphs it just wore on me after awhile If the three of them were to have a glass of water first Alex would give a long lecture on the history of water And then they would spend pages considering alternate fluids Much conversation would take place about the ideal beverage holder, and they would disagree about the proper temperature to drink the water at for manypages Finally they would all do what Alex thought best Man, just take a drink

    Having experienced a widespread sickness outbreak in the prequel that I have not read, but that isn t a problem as anything important is reviewed here the Fletcher family is no stranger to disaster This time, they ve been prepping something serious So when the East Coast gets hit with an EMP or asteroid and then a tsunami, they know how to react They can t hunker down and ride it out this time it s off to the rendezvous farm for the moms and kids, while the neighborhood dads go to collect Having experienced a widespread sickness outbreak in the prequel that I have not read, but that isn t a problem as anything important is reviewed here the Fletcher family is no stranger to disaster This time, they ve been prepping something serious So when the East Coast gets hit with an EMP or asteroid and then a tsunami, they know how to react They can t hunker down and ride it out this time it s off to the rendezvous farm for the moms and kids, while the neighborhood dads go to collect the teens who are at nearby Boston colleges Ex Army dad Alex is totally competent and capable It s convenient of course that he knows so much, but it s a lesson to take to heart Either get really good with physical activity, guns, maps, little sleep, and strategy, or make darn good friends with someone who is This is a pretty clean book, with a sprinkling of language and a couple crude comments from would be attackers

    I really enjoyed Pandemic and so was very disappointed by the first of this trilogy Instead of one fast paced excited story the author has decided to stretch into three books full of technical descriptions or weapons, ammo, vehicles, back packs, etc I guess this might appeal to a real survivalist, but there were far to many distractions for me I wish I could know the rest of the story, but it will not be worth it to wade through twobooks If the author ever does a rewrite and sticks to I really enjoyed Pandemic and so was very disappointed by the first of this trilogy Instead of one fast paced excited story the author has decided to stretch into three books full of technical descriptions or weapons, ammo, vehicles, back packs, etc I guess this might appeal to a real survivalist, but there were far to many distractions for me I wish I could know the rest of the story, but it will not be worth it to wade through twobooks If the author ever does a rewrite and sticks to the story I may pick it back up Disappointed that I spent 99 cents based on my sheer enjoyment of Pandemic

    Eh Sad to say this was quite boring There s no character development No depth in the story Just one mission after the other Kinda like a videogame, except that it s boring The action scenes are all technical I really disliked this.

    Here I am with another book from the talented Steven Konkoly, The Perseid Collapse Set six years after The Jakarta Pandemic, our friends the Fletchers are in for yet another collapse of society This time from an event that no one was expecting or could even have imagined But being still so close to the devastation and societal downfall that occurred during the Jakarta Pandemic, fear and paranoia remain on high alert and that simply adds to the difficulty the Fletchers and friends will be forc Here I am with another book from the talented Steven Konkoly, The Perseid Collapse Set six years after The Jakarta Pandemic, our friends the Fletchers are in for yet another collapse of society This time from an event that no one was expecting or could even have imagined But being still so close to the devastation and societal downfall that occurred during the Jakarta Pandemic, fear and paranoia remain on high alert and that simply adds to the difficulty the Fletchers and friends will be forced to deal with as they attempt to split up and get part of the group to the safety of Alex s parents home and the other few members of their group head to Boston to get two of their children who have just started college back safe with their families.What I really enjoyed about The Perseid Collapse is that it is thought provoking It truly makes you stop and consider what actions you may take should you be forced into a similar situation Do all the main characters in Konkoly s book make the right decision I do not feel that is the case, but it also was not me in that same situation being forced to choose whose life to take not take Who is to say that should I be put into a similar scenario I wouldn t make the exact same choice no matter how wrong it may be We simply do not know until it happens to us But it s nice to sit and read, what I feel is a pretty realistic possibility and see how others deal and ponder your own options.I m not a scary conspiracy theorist survivalist, but I do believe in being prepared, which is yet another aspect of The Perseid Collapse that I enjoyed These people are prepared They know what they are doing, they are ready to make the hard calls and they have planned out and, obviously, discussed various situations that may arise and how to deal with them Food, weapons, ammo, various other gear are all stocked up and ready to go at a minutes notice.or once it s brought to the surface from the flooded basement see, you can t really prepare for EVERYTHING Ultimately, this is a fantastic read that I thoroughly enjoyed and am also irritated that I have to wait for the 2nd and, I believe, 3rd books to be released I think I m going to tell Mr Konkoly to not contact me until all books are available, because darnit I hate waiting But yet it s also very much worth the wait, so I shall wait begrudgingly

    The story starts like a mid summer sunrise in a long cultivated valley An almost imperceptibly slow but steady transformation from dark to light When an asteroid impacted the eastern coast and the resulting tsunami swept north and south, large sections are flooded and life will never be the same When the tsunami hits the state of Maine, Alex Fletcher, his wife Kate and their children survived the wave on their yacht behind one of the coastal islands When they finally get home they team up wi The story starts like a mid summer sunrise in a long cultivated valley An almost imperceptibly slow but steady transformation from dark to light When an asteroid impacted the eastern coast and the resulting tsunami swept north and south, large sections are flooded and life will never be the same When the tsunami hits the state of Maine, Alex Fletcher, his wife Kate and their children survived the wave on their yacht behind one of the coastal islands When they finally get home they team up with a couple of neighbors and head off to Boston to try and rescue two of their children attending college there The apocalyptic scenario is frightening but nothing compared to the main characters and their arsenal of weapons that they have in their possession I can t imagine how it would be if my neighbors had the weapon arsenals herein described and my neighbor s wives and children could field strip any pistol, semi automatic and automatic weapon on and off the open market The story reveals a situation no one would ever like to experience and I found myself continually reminding myself that this was just a work of fiction If the reader can accept how easily law, order, and civilization can be abandoned when a natural or unnatural disaster strikes, this should interest them I stopped counting collateral damage and dead civilians halfway through the story This must be the reason civil authorities recommend that people stay inside during and after a catastrophe natural or otherwise The technical jargon and painstaking descriptions tend to take away from the story as a whole It gives the reader a literary wedgy by leaving them hanging in confused and frustrating ignorance For some unidentifiable reason, Stephen King s use of Maine as the state that most of his horror stories are located, other authors have taken up the idea, making it their horror location of choice With an estimated population of 1.3 million and an area of 353,385 square miles 91.646 km , rating 39th out of 50 doesn t explain the affinity for writers and horror stories

    This novel is set about six years after the events of The Jakarta Pandemic Alex and his family learnt a lot of lessons during that apocalyptic event, most noticeably, don t tell anyone you have lots of stocks, and don t try to be humane shoot first and shoot to kill These new learnt lessons come in handy when the family is hit by an EMP and then a tsunami presumably both as a result of a nuclear event just off the New England coast The Fletchers who survived the Jakarta flu have consolidat This novel is set about six years after the events of The Jakarta Pandemic Alex and his family learnt a lot of lessons during that apocalyptic event, most noticeably, don t tell anyone you have lots of stocks, and don t try to be humane shoot first and shoot to kill These new learnt lessons come in handy when the family is hit by an EMP and then a tsunami presumably both as a result of a nuclear event just off the New England coast The Fletchers who survived the Jakarta flu have consolidated in a compound where they can hole up and survive self sufficient through another event The only problem is, Ryan, their son, has just started college in Boston Alex has to face the devastation of the city and all a densely packed urban environment means, in order to bring Ryan to the compound Alex Fletcher is the new and better Jack Reacher I cannot praise these books too highly for those who like special forces quasi military novels Seriously, just a description of what Alex packs in his fifteen second bug out kit stirs my blood The trouble in real life with preparing for an apocalypse is that they never actually come Fortunately for Alex, he s facing one far worse than the flu epidemic Everything he s learnt, everything he knows is vital if he s to save his family.This novel ends on such an abrupt cliffhanger that it s clear you re intended to have part 2 Event Horizonready to go Superb movie material and any actor would literally kill to get the Alex Fletcher role

    I got a copy of this book as my Prime selection after reading and enjoying The Jakarta Pandemic some time ago This was a great followup and a great start to a new trilogy It s fast paced and opened up multiple story lines that appear to be complex and messy enough to easily fill twobooks which I m definitely looking forward to reading.Alex, the main character, as with many leads in action thrillers is ex marine special forces and just a little too well prepared to feel completely real I got a copy of this book as my Prime selection after reading and enjoying The Jakarta Pandemic some time ago This was a great followup and a great start to a new trilogy It s fast paced and opened up multiple story lines that appear to be complex and messy enough to easily fill twobooks which I m definitely looking forward to reading.Alex, the main character, as with many leads in action thrillers is ex marine special forces and just a little too well prepared to feel completely real But, that s really part of the fun and really the only complaint I have, if you can call it that.The tsunami and its effects on Portland and other parts of the New England coast was well done and believable without being overly done The prelude in China was just enough to get my curiosity up and my mind working also without being overly done Some of the fight scenes are detailed but do not drag out One of the high points of the book is that is well done without being drawn out and over dramatized.It was a lot of fun to read
