Into Autumn is a very interesting thought provoking read For many years before we began to hear about the threats that Electromagnetic Pulse EMP weapons pose a serious and growing threat to our national security I used to tell my husband that if anyone wanted to send us back to the stone age all they would have to do is destroy our electrical supply because every aspect of our lives was so dependent upon it And that was before computers and cell phones became so much a part of our lives Into Autumn does not mention EMP s but the power grid has gone down and along with it all internet and cell contact The only thing that still seems to work is the ham radio network and that is for the few who have themThe first sign of disaster was the spiralling downward plunge of the stock market which sends shock waves throughout the country Today as I write this the stock market has dropped precipitously over the past 3 days and I must admit I have thought about Landgraf s storyEileen Branson works in the stock exchange At first she is puzzled then stunned and frightened As she watches the news on TV she realises that fear is turning into chaos in the cities and she makes the decision to pack a few belongings and prepare to leave early the next morning She rushes out to get some cash but doesn t think to fill up her car s gas tank Panicked by the sound of shots in her neighbourhood she hurry s home and hides out in her house with no lights on to draw attention to it Early the next morning she leaves the city and heads out not knowing where she is headed but knowing that she will surely die if she doesn t get away from the city She is unarmed has a limited amount of food a limited amount of water and a gas tank that is not full She embarks on a journey that I am pretty certain I could not have survived I could imagine the fear the anxiety the uncertainty and the desperation she felt after her car stopped and she walked down a road in a forest having no idea where it would take her or if she would surviveLars Lindgren had chosen to live life off the grid a few years earlier so is fairly well euipped to deal the circumstances when society falls apart He has solar panels that provide a limited amount of power He grows enough vegetables to feed himself he hunts for his meat and trades with the few neighbours who are in the neighbourhood His is a good shot and he is well aware of the dangers of intruders In fact when he discovers a ragged starving Eileen at the side of his house she was very fortunate that he didn t shoot her there and thenInto Autumn is an interesting look into what life would become like if infrastructure that keeps our world working failed No money no government no food no fuel for vehicles those who have guns would inevitably maraud and kill the helpless to take the little that they have Civilized humans would uickly revert to savage animals in the uest for food and shelterI believe this book is a pretty realistic portrayal of what life would become if you had the will to survive in those circumstances Everyone would have to pull their weight neighbours would either band together in support of each other for protection and the comfort of human company or they would kill each other and the survivors would take the spoils Hard choices would have to be made and some of them would totally go against what a person s moral beliefs yet to survive they would commit to the choice Invariably loved ones would die and the survivors would pull themselves together and face the days aheadThere are many other elements to this book This isn t an end of the world story but it is a portrayal of the collapse of society There is a love story or two and yes there is the human element of sexual relationships sometimes pretty steamy There is loyal friendship struggle hard work celebration and sharing of goods to provide food and safetyWhen I finished reading the book I felt certain that Landgraf was a Survivalist so I looked up his bio I didn t find anything that might link him to the groups that we hear about but he produced a great story My husband is pretty picky about what he reads but I have told him that I think he would enjoy Into Autumn and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a book that has action adventure murder and mayhem interwoven with the ordinary aspects of life
