Far exceeds my expectations. Howey is one of the few self-published authors who actually know how to write an engaging and believable post-apocalyptic world. Admittedly, there was some hesitation before I before I even read a word. As a rule, I stay away from self-published authors, mostly because I haven't had a good experience with their books or writing and partly because I wanted to avoid the drama that might accompany a negative book rating/review.
* Rest of review to be added at a later time.
