Book Review: The End by G. Michael Hopf

EMP Animation Photo Credit: Heritage.org

Bang! Right out of the gate I was caught up in The End. Who would not be interested when contemplating what it would be like to have the United States completelty altered and have to rebuild after the government was severed at the head? It was a book that had me riveted and almost wanting to skip ahead to see what was going to happen. The ability of G. Michael Hopf to weave the many characters and experiences into one fluid story line was incredible in my opinion.

The story of Gordan Van Zandt and his family was not only interesting, but informational as well. The reader gets to experience a little bit about Sergeant Van Zandt, the Marine, and then go on to see how his experiences effect his family life and ultimately how it impacts his struggle to survive and support his family in the face of a catastrophic attack on the United States and their allies. Not only does life become a mad dash to secure the resources available for survival but the reader gets to witness the clashes and dilemmas that occur as civility goes by the wayside. There are many hard decisions to be made and the entire range of human emotion is explored as we see people ignorant to the fact that their phones will no longer work and why, anxiety as the realization of what happened sets in, sadness as Gordon realizes the innocence of his children, panic as patients die in the hospital ICU because of the lack of power and chaos as looters grab everything they can out of the grocery store. I found myself, once again, thinking about what I would do if society ground to a halt.
I have read some criticism about Hopf and his writing but I do not share these opinions. I took the book for what it was and found that it was an enjoyable story which explored a very scary possibility, one that we could find ourselves facing as a nation. Especially a nation that is not always appreciated for who we are and what we do.
As I read The End and the characters and their stories were revealed, I began to appreciate many things about this book including the fact that it was written from a position of authority and experience. As a fellow combat veteran, I realized that Hopf is probably sharing a little bit of his experience in combat as he wrote this book. I kept thinking back to my experiences and was almost haunted by the reality of the military and combat scenarios that were woven into The End. It is also apparent that there was a fair amount of research completed about Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) and nuclear weapons completed as I felt that the story was quite factual regarding what could be expected following such an attack.
I truly cannot recommend this book enough if you are interested in the postapocalyptic genre, survival, preparedness, or even just contemplating what society would be like after such an attack.
If you are interested in reading about Gordon Van Zandt and his associates, the two books available in The New World Series can be purchased from Amazon and can be located by clicking on the following links:
Young Gordon Van Zandt valued duty and loyalty to country above all, so after 9/11, he dropped out of college and joined the Marine Corps. This idealism vanished one fateful day in a war-torn city in Iraq. Ten years later, he is still struggling with the ghosts of his past when a new reality is thrust upon him and his family: North America, Europe and the Far East have all suffered a devastating Super-EMP attack, which causes catastrophic damage to the nation’s power grid and essential infrastructures. Everything from cell phones to cars to computers cease to function, putting society at a standstill.
With civilization in chaos, Gordon must fight for the limited and fast dwindling resources. He knows survival requires action and cooperation with his neighbors, but as the days wear on, so does all sense of civility within his community—and so he must make some of the most difficult decisions of his life in order to ensure his family’s safety.
The End was just the beginning of the new world…Only six weeks have passed since a super-EMP attack devastated the United States, but already, life has changed dramatically. Most of America has become a wasteland filled with starving bands of people, mobs and gangs. Millions are dead and millions more are suffering, with no end in sight.
For Gordon, Samantha, Sebastian, Cruz and Barone, the turmoil and chaos they dealt with in the early weeks after the attack will seem trivial in comparison to the collapse of society that plays out before their eyes. Uncertainty abounds as they all travel different paths in search of a safe place to call home. The only thing that is definite is that The Long Road will take its toll on all of them.

Going Home by A. American – Book Review

Books written about disasters and surviving the chaos that ensues are a tough genre to write and if not written well, can be even harder to read. Going Home by A. American is not a book that I had to struggle through. I loved it! I will admit that it was a bit slow in the beginning but once I got through the first chapter, I could not set the book down! I have not had to endure a major disaster that altered my life completely, but I found myself constantly thinking that the trials and experiences that Morgan Carter endures in Going Home are about as accurate as possible for a fictional work. Each wrinkle and tribulation that is woven into the storyline caused me to put myself in the same position, wondering what it would be like and questioning myself about whether or not I would do the same thing.
If you have ever wondered how society as a whole, and people as individuals, would react to a lawless environment or a situation where the infrastructure collapsed, Going Home will provide you great insight into this aspect of human behavior. This novel includes, what I believe are, some honest reactions to situations that have and will occur again in societies across the globe and expose the realities of disaster situations and emphasize the need to be prepared. During a disaster, chaos will ensue and those who were once friends and neighbors will turn on one another to ensure their family and their own needs for survival are met. This is a point that is driven home as Morgan Carter treks over 250 miles through unkown situations in an effort to get home to his family after he experiences what seems to be an EMP. The story further builds as it becomes evident that the cause of the disaster may be the American government itself.
If I were forced to criticize one thing about this book it would be the fact that, like many prepper/post-apocolyptic themed novels, Going Home includes what most readers would view as overkill when it comes to the details of some of the supplies in Morgan’s get home bag as well as how he completes some of the tasks that he performs. This is a two-edged sword in the fact that there is an educational aspect to this book and leaving the detail out would somewhat defeat this purpose while including the finite information can be a bit tedious to the reader at times. I personally have encountered this before in similar novels like Patriots by James Wesley, Rawles and have been able to deal with it without any permanent damage being caused to me or those around me.
It is very exciting that my adventure does not have to end with Going Home, as it was only the first installment of what is at least a three part series(I am not sure if there are more part(s) in the works). I cannot wait to read the second installment, Surviving Home, and then see what happens in the third part of the series, Escaping Home. If you are interested in reading about Morgan Carter’s adventures for yourself I have great news! First of all, the entire three book series can be purchased from Amazon and can be located by clicking on the following links:
Going HomeIf society collapsed, could you survive?When Morgan Carter’s car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country’s power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored—if it ever will be. An avid survivalist, Morgan takes to the road with his prepper pack on his back.During the grueling trek from Tallahassee to his home in Lake County, chaos threatens his every step but Morgan is hell-bent on getting home to his wife and daughters—and he’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Surviving-Home-199x300

Surviving HomeNo electricity. No running water. No food. No end in sight. If life as you knew it changed in an instant, would you be prepared?In A. American’s first novel, Going Home, readers were introduced to Morgan Carter, the resourceful, tough-as-nails survivalist who embarks on a treacherous 250-mile journey across Florida following the collapse of the nation’s power grid. Now reunited with his loving wife and daughters in this follow-up to Going Home, Morgan knows that their happiness is fleeting, as the worst is yet to come. Though for years Morgan has been diligently preparing for emergency situations, many of his neighbors are completely unready for life in this strange new world—and they’re starting to get restless.With the help of his closest companions, Morgan fights to keeps his home secure—only to discover shocking information about the state of the nation in the process.
Escaping HomeWhen society ceases to exist, who can you trust?After the collapse of the nation’s power grid, America is under martial law—and safety is an illusion. As violence erupts around him, Morgan Carter faces one of his most difficult decisions yet: whether to stay and defend his home, or move to a more isolated area, away from the prying eyes of the government. He and his family are hesitant to leave their beloved Lake County, but with increasingly suspicious activities happening in a nearby refugee camp, all signs point towards defecting. Morgan and his friends aren’t going to leave without a fight, though—and they’ll do anything to protect their freedoms.From the author of the hit survivalist novels Going Home and Surviving Home, Escaping Home describes the struggle to live in a world with no rules, and how, sometimes, the strength of family is the only thing that can pull you through.

Product Review & Giveaway: SurvivAMINO

I am excited to share with you a new and unique product that is available from Vitality Sciences, SurvivAMINO Tactical Protein Replacement for Survival. This is a dietary supplement that is intended to work as either a supplement to other foods or even as a meal replacement, making it the ideal product to add to any survival kit. My experience with the product was phenomenal. I used SurvivAMINO as a meal replacement, taking a full dose every day for two weeks instead of having breakfast. The results were great. I found that I had more energy and drive throughout the day compared to eating a normal breakfast of yogurt, cereal, toast or comparable items and I also did not find myself yearning for food. I generally felt satisfied and did not need to eat until lunch time. The best part was that SurvivAMINO never left me feeling jittery or odd and I never hit a wall or crashed like it is possible to experience with some supplements.

So what is it that makes SurvivAMINO so unique and valuable to the preparedness minded individual? I kind of wondered the same thing, so I checked it out. What I found is that it would be difficult, if not impossible to find a comparable product anywhere else. The only way to get something comparable from other dietary supplement companies would be to buy several different products to make a similar blend of essential amino acids. This can be very expensive and even then, many of the other supplements out there have a bunch of junk in them. SurvivAMINO does not contain any fat, sodium, sugar, yeast, gluten, soy, corn, wheat, rice, GMO (genetically modified organism), preservatives, excipients (an inactive substance that is mixed with the active ingredient to act as a bulking agent or filler), dairy or animal products. This makes it safe for pretty much anyone to use.

A single bottle of SurvivAMINO also contains 20 full servings which is one meal shy of having meal replacements for an entire week of survival. At a weight of mere ounces, it is not possible to find something else to put into your kit that can accomplish the same purpose.

SurvivAMINO is made up of a proprietary blend of the following ingredients:

  • L-Leucine
  • L-Valine
  • L-Isoleucine
  • L-Lysine HCL
  • L-Phenylalanine
  • L-Threonine
  • L-Methionine
  • L-Tryptophan

These are eight of the nine indispensible amino acids according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Whew! Say that five times fast. What it comes down to is the fact that the National Center for Biotechnology Information, which is the nation’s leading organization in helping to increase the understanding of fundamental molecular and genetic processes that control health and disease, says that the components of SurvivAMINO is good stuff and your body needs it to survive.

It is also important to note that SurvivAMINO only contains essential amino acids. These are the amino acids that a human’s body cannot produce and must take in from outside sources. This is usually accomplished through consuming proteins as part of a balanced diet. This can be difficult during a survival situation. Through careful planning, long-term storage foods could be set aside to accomplish this purpose but it would be much more expensive and these same storage foods would require a vehicle of some variety to transport due to the bulk of these products. You are not going to beat SurvivAMINO in price and size for accomplishing the purpose of providing these essential amino acids to your body in a survival situation.

I have seen where a few people have shared their opinion that the tablets were difficult to swallow because of their size and that taking the full dose of five tablets was nearly impossible, resulting in the need to take them one at a time. My experience was that this was not the case at all. I was easily able to take all five of the tablets at once. This may be a result of my pill swallowing super powers though and your results may vary.

My final impression of SurvivAMINO is that it is an incredible product and if you are serious about being prepared, it is a must have for a Bug Out Bag, Get Home Bag, home survival kit, office survival kit, and everything in between.

Now for what might be the best part of all….the folks at Vitality Sciences are going to give away a bottle of SurvivAMINO to one lucky reader of The Prepared Ninja. Click here to enter through Rafflecopter. The giveaway will run through the 30th of September. On the 1st of October a random winner will be selected to receive a free bottle of SurvivAMINO.

Why you need body armor:

  • In the event of societal collapse, no measure of protection will be too much. It is likely that acts of violence will be commonplace and body armor could save your life.
  • Working in an occupation that increases the level of risk that you are exposed to. Such professionals could include: First Responders (Police, Fire, EMS), Security Professionals, Medical Professionals, Corrections Officers, Public Officials, Late Shift Workers, Those who make house visits to unfamilar areas (Social Workers, Probation/Parole Officers), individuals who work with disgruntled customers, and professions that involve significant stressors that could cause a co-worker to act out with violence.
  • During a riot, the chance of being exposed to violence that could cause life-threatening injury significantly increases.

*Check all applicable laws to ensure that possession of body armor is legal where you live or plan on possessing body armor.

DISCLAIMER: The winner of this giveaway is completely and solely responsible for ensuring they are properly trained to use and legally able to possess this piece of medical equipment. The Prepared Ninja and its affiliates are not responsible for illegal possession or misuse of the Special Operations Forces Tactical Tourniquet.

About the SOFT-T from Tactical Medical Solutions:

“The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet is one of the top performing tourniquets currently available. It is the tourniquet of choice for many of the world’s most elite and experienced warriors who have selected it for its outstanding ability to control severe bleeding, high level of reliability and ease of application. While some military units have replaced their issue tourniquets with the SOF®TT, others military units have implemented SOP’s stating that the SOF® Tactical Tourniquet is to be used on all lower extremity bleeds. That means the SOF®TT is the tourniquet that trusted to control the most severe extremity hemorrhage on the battlefield.

The key to successful implementation of a device to be used in a high stress environment is training and ease of use. For law enforcement officers, application of the tourniquet is similar to the use of a hobble. This existing level of familiarity reduces training time and aids in the effectiveness of the device.”

Advantages of the SOF® Tactical Tourniquet
  • 100% Effective. Proven to be 100% effective during US Army Institute of Surgical Research testing.
  • Simple application. The SOF®TT is applied the same to an arm or leg. Unlike other tourniquets that require you to learn two methods of application and implement the proper method when under stress, the SOF®TT is applied the same way to an arm or leg. By accounting for the factors of human performance in combat we have minimized the risk of failure. Applying a tourniquet should not be a multiple choice exam, it should be simple and straight forward. The SOF®TT provides the necessary effectiveness with an unmatched level of simplicity to increase the overall effectiveness of the device.
  • Durability. The SOF®TT is constructed of quality, high strength materials. The tourniquet handle is machined from a solid piece of aircraft aluminum and maintains its strength in extreme temperatures. The tri-rings are molded Acetyl, a high impact plastic that will also maintain its strength in extreme operating conditions.
  • Reliable. The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet is designed to reduce the chance of accidental release or mechanical failure. Unlike other materials including Velcro®, the fastening system will perform when soiled, muddy, frozen, or wet.
  • Safety set screw prevents accidental release of pressure during tactical patient movement. The screw is not required to gain hemorrhage control, but it is recommended if the patient will be moved in a tactical environment.
  • Dual locking rings offer a back up locking system.

Made in the USA.
