by Troy J. Grice
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, worried that I may have been ruined with modern apocalypse/patriot books thanks to Larken Rose’s The Iron Web. I’m happy to report that Grice’s Indivisible is just as good and is a book that, you should be warned, you’ll likely read through in one sitting. Screw sleep.
The book centers on the coming financial collapse and four characters around that. One is a regular guy with nothing special about him. He’s not in the patriot movement at all, not a survivalist or weapons expert, and has only a regular guy’s worries about his wife and child. Another is a disturbed veteran soldier and his comrade in arms, whose beyond disturbed and into the psychotic. Finally, there’s the lawman, an Under Sheriff who takes himself and his badge a little too seriously and his estranged wife, a Deputy of the U.S. Treasury.
The story weaves around these characters as the financial collapse hits America and the people slowly realize the end is nigh. Most of the action takes place around Denver, Colorado as the soldiers are brought home to quell the “rebellion” and bring order – usually amounting to the slaughter of civilians and mass desertions of both professional soldiers and National Guard.
Mostly, though, the story revolves around the everyman and his quest to get his family through the collapse intact. He is both helped and hindered along the way by the others in the story. He works to get through what he must do amidst gasoline shortages, food shortages, parasitic government employees, etc.
In the end, this is a great book and very well worth reading. Get a copy today.
