Lights Out- A book review

ligths out new

David Crawford’s “Lights Out” book was one of the first “SHTF” books I read. It has been around a few years and Mr. Crawford had it on the web for free for a long time- over 3 million downloads. It has been published as a paperback since 2010 and put on kindle. Can’t blame him. Money is good.

The book flows decent and has a great plot. There are some parts that could be left out, but for the most part, it is an enjoyable read.  The story centers around an EMP attack and the aftermath of this. The main character is Mark Turner and it follows him and his family as they deal with the effects of the changed world. Living in a neighborhood, they find a common bond with neighbors and fight off the “hoard” of roving criminals. The bond between the neighbors and how “most” of them come together is a good storyline. If something of this magnitude did happen, you would need help.

I don’t want to ruin it if you have not read it, so will not give away the entire story. I will say the build up and portrayal of the main antagonist is pretty good.

The story is not a “preppers” handbook filled with story around “gear”,  rather it is a story with a dash of prepping info.

All in all, worth a read. Some of the character build up could be better, but you can relate to Mark and his struggle.
