The concept of this book is genius and obviously extremely topical Unfortunately O'Connell makes it very difficult to enjoy Although some of his concerns on the survivalists featured are valid he presents an increasingly embittered and one sided political viewpoint with zero humour balance or warmth After reading of the nth person he had 'contempt' for I started to feel sorry for O'Connell It became obvious why he has issues with anxiety – he lacks perspective and sees only in black and white Next time you have a good idea like this Mark please give it to Jon Ronson and spare us your hand wringing misery

Mark O'Connell has written a fascinating journey past the signposts dotting the road to terminal disaster His personal vignettes aside his work approaches his topic with urgency and clarity Although he mentions John of Patmos and Revelation at times this is NOT a book about religion or religious escatological discussions but a book about the foibles delusions and gross misconceptions of preppers and billionaires as they jointly and severally try to escape from the coming storm by digging in or running away O'Connell doesn't so much lay out a timeline for his readers but points out uite simply the problems of setting up colonies on the Moon Mars the South Dakota plainsNew Zealand &c and sustaining them His experiences on his uest in Scotland with the Dark Mountain Project were my favorite dialogueIn sum I highly recommend Notes from the Apocalypse and do so without reservationListen and understand That our future is out there It can't be bargained with It can't be reasoned with It doesn't feel pity or remorse or fear And it absolutely will not stopNo Fate but our own Kyle Reese Terminator 1
