Noah Mann delivers a winner of a dystopian thriller with BUGGING OUT. The future is alarmingly possible, the characters are refreshingly real, and the challenges are terrifying in this deftly-spun tale of survival and treachery in a world left barren by the Blight.
Eric “Fletch” Fletcher is a sensible man–prepared, but not quite a prepper. The sort of fellow many of us are or hope to have for a neighbor when it all hits the fan. When Eric’s best friend, a government insider, approaches him with a warning to get out of town, Eric is most reluctant to do so. He fights his shifting reality right up until all of the TV stations broadcast a Code Red. Then, he can deny it no longer. Eric Fletcher must bug out.
As a highly trained survivalist and disaster preparedness expert, Noah Mann weaves a journey of endurance and gritty wit with exceptional style and polished prose. A great read that both thrills and satisfies. I decidedly recommend BUGGING OUT.
You can find BUGGING OUT, as well as the sequel, EAGLE ONE, at Amazon. Click on the pictures for the links.
I read a sample and it’s very good. I’ll read it when I get a chance. I have a long to read list. LOL. Dystopian fiction is disturbing, but that’s not a bad thing if it makes you think. I can picture similar things in these stories happening in the not-too-distant future if something doesn’t change.
I think people draw inspiration from imagining the worst, and then imagining their own survival in the characters. 🙂
I am confused Piper. Are you Noah Mann?
No. Definitely not. I just enjoyed the book. 🙂
