    Recommended if you are looking for sheer, mindless escapism of the postapocalyptic variety sans zombies So so if you require good writing and character development along with a shoot em all up plot.The End and The Long Road are both postapocalyptic novels by G Michael Hopf The novels have several storylines in the narrative, but begin by mainly follow former marine Gordon Van Zandt and his family after a super EMP electromagnetic pulse attack against the USA Gordon immediately realizes Recommended if you are looking for sheer, mindless escapism of the postapocalyptic variety sans zombies So so if you require good writing and character development along with a shoot em all up plot.The End and The Long Road are both postapocalyptic novels by G Michael Hopf The novels have several storylines in the narrative, but begin by mainly follow former marine Gordon Van Zandt and his family after a super EMP electromagnetic pulse attack against the USA Gordon immediately realizes what is happening and takes measures to secure supplies for his family As he knew would happen, society immediately begins to break down Unless a group of people can somehow manage to work together to protect their members without infighting, it is every man family for themselves.Originally self published novels they are now being released by Plume The Penguin Group in anticipation of the pending third installment of the story to be published soon.Pros The plot is interesting and will keep you engrossed in the story development and action The movement of the scenarios in both of these books progress swiftly along Whether you find the actions of characters believable or not at least the various storylines keep up a quick pace It s always interesting to speculate what would happen to society and people under these kind of circumstances Hopf includes all sorts of crazy groups and leaders The Long Road is better than The End.Cons Someone got out their binos If you read my reviews, you will know what this means I may have to make a New Year s resolution or enact a rule that I will not read books where binos are produced.Lots of violence and not all of it seems to be entirely necessary for forward movement of the plot.The writing isn t the best I would have set the first book aside well before the 50 page mark if I hadn t agreed to read it for a review The second paragraph in The End would have been enough, but the following passage would certainly have ended my reading Hayley was small for her age, very girly with long, blond curly hair and very fine features She was definitely all girl and loved everything princess The End, pg 16 especially when Gordon loved the same things about his wife He loved everything about her from her small frame and long, wavy blond hair to her light green eyes and full lips pg 19 I sure would have liked to know something else about her, like maybe some character traits, besides her looks.There are many other examples before the 50 page mark, so be forewarned not good writing.I might be tempted to say it would be a good airplane book mindless escapism to keep you busy but with the EMP hitting and sending planes falling from the skyDisclosure I received an advanced reading copy of this book from the publisher and TLC for review purposes

    In the second novel, we learn that one of the characters from the first has lived The war has stopped and it seems life has gotten back to acivil time This character ends up being interviewed by a journalist and ends up delivering the story that picked up right where we left off.As, the previous novel, we re bounced around from several plot lines making it hard to decipher what s going and who is still alive and what else has escalated This type of pacing had me so confused and I hated In the second novel, we learn that one of the characters from the first has lived The war has stopped and it seems life has gotten back to acivil time This character ends up being interviewed by a journalist and ends up delivering the story that picked up right where we left off.As, the previous novel, we re bounced around from several plot lines making it hard to decipher what s going and who is still alive and what else has escalated This type of pacing had me so confused and I hated how it bounced and forth There is also a lot of military jargon used and even though it was incredibly detailed and written well, I didn t care too much about it I cared about the characters and their stories I cared about what was going on with all the civil unrest Even though it was hard to care about any of these characters, I still wanted to know who was behind these nuclear attacks Sad to say I didn t get my answer.I still don t understand Gordan s thought process I know he s trying to survive, but he does this in the most basic android like form Like he s not human and incapable of emotion or empathy Only when the ending came did I find any semblance of a human emotion.If you enjoy fast paced reading about the end of the world as we know it, then this is for you If you re looking to connect with characters, this book is can be passed on

    I m like another reviewer, I like the Gordon storyline especially Curious to see how Haley ends up where she does With this author, no one is safe Hooked in for the whole ride I could do without the profanity.

    As an author myself, I know it s not easy writing stories that can keep readers on edge the entire time It s especially hard in the apocalyptic genre, which has become populated with very similar versions of the same storyline However, Mr Hopf does a fantastic job of writing a sequel to his first book, The End In The Long Road, we follow Gordon and his band of families as the desperately set off in search of a new place to call home The journey is abruptly put on hold when Gordon and Hunter As an author myself, I know it s not easy writing stories that can keep readers on edge the entire time It s especially hard in the apocalyptic genre, which has become populated with very similar versions of the same storyline However, Mr Hopf does a fantastic job of writing a sequel to his first book, The End In The Long Road, we follow Gordon and his band of families as the desperately set off in search of a new place to call home The journey is abruptly put on hold when Gordon and Hunter are captured by a lunatic, obsessed with cleansing the world of people who do not share the same beliefs as him Samantha and another member of their group, Nelson, desperately search for them, but by the time they find them, it s too late My heart practically sank into my stomach when I found out who had died.This book, and this series, is phenomenal because it has several different elements that I personally love First off, it has short chapters I love short chapters and exerts because I can either read one or two, or read 12, depending on how much time I have Either ay, it s much easier to pick up where you left off and remember all of the little details of the book.Second, the books follow multiple sets of characters in different places As I read books 1 and 2, I constantly kept trying to figure out how and when these characters were going to cross paths with one another I m still trying to figure that out as I jump into book 3.The third thing Mr Hopf added which is great is the foreshadowing element By adding it bits from the future from Haley s perspective, we as the reader get a small taste of the future and get some satisfaction knowing that at least she lives through all of the events of the series After reading this book, it s very comforting knowing that at lest someone from the original group will survive.If you are hesitant about picking up this series, let me tell you that you have no reason to be whatsoever I m blunt when it comes to books and there are several authors I won t read again because their books were that bad With Mr Hopf, that is far from the case This series is fantastic and I highly recommend The End and The Long Road I will keep writing positive reviews on these books until I have a reason not to Although, with the way the first two books have gone, I doubt that will be the case with The New World Series

    As seen on my blog JOINT REVIEW with The End by G Michael Hopf I m not going to lie to you I KEPT EXPECTING ZOMBIES It s impossible not to, what with post apocalyptic horrors, mixed with a dwindling supply of food, mixed with intense starvation, mixed with the fact that The End and The Long Road were my very first ADULT post apocalyptic books I d grown SO accustomed to the plot lines of teen books that follow the fall of the world as we know it, and c mon, let s be honest, there s usual As seen on my blog JOINT REVIEW with The End by G Michael Hopf I m not going to lie to you I KEPT EXPECTING ZOMBIES It s impossible not to, what with post apocalyptic horrors, mixed with a dwindling supply of food, mixed with intense starvation, mixed with the fact that The End and The Long Road were my very first ADULT post apocalyptic books I d grown SO accustomed to the plot lines of teen books that follow the fall of the world as we know it, and c mon, let s be honest, there s usually zombies But these books were refreshingly different, and SO detailed oriented It took me a moment to throw out the sometimes horridly unrealistic explanations of apocalypse found in YA books, and embrace the VERY real possibilities that The End and The Long Road expressed to me.I use the word refreshingly up there very lightly, both of these books are definitely not for the faint of heart They both contain blunt, no holds barred accounts of what our planet could possibly spiral into, should a weapon of mass destruction be used against us These realities included brutality, rape, murder, savagery, and all around hostile situations In The End, the book begins and ends not too far into the future 2066 , where a now aged descendant of the Van Zandt family is about to recount to a reporter, the disturbing events the day of, and weeks following, the attacks The meat of the books take place in present day, where we follow the storylines of four main characters, all spread throughout the country, fighting their own battles for survival All four characters were intricately linked, each making decisions that would inadvertently, or directly, affect the others The Long Road continues to detail the events following the attacks, though withintensity, and urgency.The areas that completely lost me were the technical military terms and situations The author comes from a U.S Marine background, so it was understandable that he would use that knowledge to his advantage However, it tended to leak into moments that should have beencandid, and natural Dialogue between Gordon and his family, or moments between those not in the military, came across as robotic, and stoic This aspect made it hard for me to connect to some characters on a personal level I couldn t empathize with them as much as I would have liked to their words just didn t seem to come from a genuine place.To reiterate, The End, and The Long Road are not books that simply brush the surface of world apocalypse This is the camera zoomed into the specific details, the exact realities of what measures need to be taken to prepare for survival what sacrifices, and split second decisions, need to be made to keep those you love the most, safe I enjoyed this aspect the most Again, as an avid reader of YA dystopian books, I only get to read about the OUTCOME of an apocalypse the new world that has been established, MANY years into the future Hardly ANY details are ever given about how it ended up that way But The End and The Long Road were RIGHT NOW, they were the events leading up to that, the behind the scenes, and I appreciated them for exactly that reason They were fast paced reads, and COMPLETELY eye opening the attack that triggered mass hysteria is a REAL possibility, and that scared me half to death Read these books for some real life knowledge I learned about things in these books that I might be very thankful that I learned, one day Recommended for Fans of Apocalyptic Post Apocalyptic fiction, Dystopian, Controversial topics, Political Fiction, military situations DISCLAIMER I received this book as a print copy from the publisher, in order to participate in the blog tour

    Second book that makes you want to run out and buy the thirdNearly un put downable sequel to The End, character development is so so but I was pulled in by the story and thinking of how these scenarios in a post wipeout of electronics and infrastructure U.S., while shocking and grisly at times, are possible makes one think.

  9. Ann says:

    Another great Hopf novel More realistic than most stories in this genre, G Michael Hopf tells a gripping story of bravery, love, courage, pain and uncertainty Can t wait to read .

    These books seem to get better as you go The first book was easier to put down and didn t draw me in like book 2 and 3 have done so far This book I finished in a couple of sittings The story gets better as we go I m now on book 3 and read half of it in a single sitting.
