Brushfire Plague RPRuggiero

Postby Dirk Williams » Thu Aug 30, 2012 9:36 pm

Just finished this book. Outstanding book situated in Portland Oregon. A virus runs rampant thru the world. Millions die and people go wild killing, robbing ,raping.

A man his son , his best friend who is a prepper and the neighborhood in Portland band together to defend their turf. I enjoyed the book, being from southern Oregon I recognized all the locations and streets in Portland Or.

I read this book in the hopes of finding potential solutions to a predicament I find my family in in our housing development.

Nothing earth shattering yet worth a read if you have the time.

latest excerpts from reviews (go to site for full reviews)

"Very well written, descriptive and character driven. Unlike some "prepper" novels i have read, this one had great detail, from the smells of a burning city to the inner thoughts of a man losing his wife, I was very impressed."--www.greatnorthernprepper.com

"The author does a very good job in exploring the characters responses and thought process...And there is quite enough action that you never bog down in the other aspects. The story keeps you wanting more...Which [sequel] I'll be buying if I don't get a review copy. That's how good the first one was..."--www.jamesmdakin.blogspot.com

If you want to purchase or read a bunch of reader reviews:

I'm reading all the Rawles traffic in the other post...this book isn't as dense on survival info...but I believe you will find the writing very, very solid and that its a fast and entertaining read.

thanks!

"So it is my pleasure to recommend Brushfire Plague...Frankly, this book is a refreshing departure from the spate of "survivalist" books on the market...The book is written in a very engaging style...Mr. Ruggiero captures both the flaws and perfection of our human nature."--www.salvationandsurvival.com

Great new review of Brushfire Plague w/ interview with me, the author!

MY THOUGHTS: This book was a great read! From the beginning, the author draws you into the story by using one of my favorite literary tools....the flash back. You quickly become emotionally innvolved with the main character and his son through learning of their heart rending loss, which sets the stage for the book. This is one of those "can't put it down" books. Once you start you will stay up all night to find out how it ends. Like all books of this genre, I was able to extrapolate some practical tips to file away in case of future need. As a disclaimer, the language is a little strong in some areas, but certainly not gratuitous or to excess.

Enjoyed your book. Hoping to read more of your stuff soon. Like I was saying I feel a loyalty to my hood and the older folk who live here. Hopefully we never cross the bridge, however if we do I think we will be ok for awhile.

Are you from the Portland area

"Brushfire Plague is riveting and fast paced. Once I picked it up, it was hard to put down. I appreciated the detailed descriptions of the early days of the pandemic and how quickly society started degrading. The book portrayed in a realistic manner how people would react to a sudden disaster: they start out being in denial and have trouble accepting that the lawlessness can reach through their nice neighborhood. At the same time, there is a ray of hope that in the face of tragedy: good people can unite and help each other survive." www.apartmentprepper.com
