BOOK REVIEW: “THE BORROWED WORLD” BY FRANKLIN HORTON

Standard

Borrowed world coverWho doesn’t love a good apocalyptic thriller? I know I do and a while ago I read this interesting take on it by Franklin Horton. To summarize the plot, a terrorist attack causes a major collapse in the United States and our characters are stranded away from home and have to find a way back.

I call this an interesting take, as usually the genre is filled with things like zombies, aliens or nuclear disaster. Mr Horton opted rather to take a more realistic approach and I enjoyed it.

The book is well researched on a technical level. Lots of firearms are featured (which I liked, being a gun enthusiast) as well as a lot of survivalist-type gear and mindsets with some characters. At some points, however, the technical information felt a bit excessive and unnecessary, but it beats a book filled with lots of technical errors (for all other thriller authors reading this, a magazine is NOT a clip).

Overall I would recommend this book to people who like reading thrillers and apocalyptic type books. I also know that preppers will love it.
