The perfect book for your own bomb shelter. Best friends since kindergarten, survivalists Alex and Mickey take prepping to a new level when they win the biggest lottery in history. Sparing no expense, they build the ultimate subterranean bunker complex. With dreams of surviving the apocalypse in comfort and luxury, they stockpile their fortress with plenty of weed, women, and song. No expense is spared, no scenario is overlooked. But when a meteorite erases Mexico and covers Arizona with a massive debris field, Alex and Mickey soon discover that being kings of the apocalypse is not nearly as much fun as they had envisioned, and certainly a lot more work than they had signed up for. Calizona is humorously crafted as a historical mocumentary told a hundred years after the rebirth of civilization. Images of this bleak world are revealed through personal journals, video logs, surveillance footage, and a little editorial assistance from the lead archeologist who has transcribed the tale. At 255,000 words, this is an immersive world, engineered to appeal to a variety of adult readers who have grown up in a world of reality TV.Recommended for binge readers....

This book was a real surprise. A good surprise. The author has put a great deal of thought into TEOTWAWKI scenarios and I like the way he thinks. His multi million dollar bunker doesn't have any jail cells, for instance :)There were a few questionable word choices. Grammer rules can go out the window in dialog, but an academic making transcriptions from video captures probably wouldn't use "squoze" to describe the action captured by the camera, and there were a few times when the transcriber was a little too omniscient when describing thoughts and motivations no camera could capture. Worst of all, the author lost his classic rock credibility when he attributed In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida to Cream.But these are nits. I'll be watching for a sequel.
I don't write reviews and rarely read them thanks to amazon's "every book is 5 star" mentality, but felt I had to for this book.A great fan of EOW novels, I was a little skeptical when stumbling across this but I am glad I was proved wrong.The story takes a completely different approach to nearly all EOW scenarios and centres on the main character and his code of ethics after the "big one" hits.The story is a little Gung-Ho, and definitely aimed at the male reader but the author's prose is pretty good. I'll be looking out for the sequel
Simply incorrigible; the book is awesome, even if the author is a pretentious ass and a shameless self-promoter.
