King of Dogs by Andrew Edwards

I've started writing brief reviews or summaries of books I've read. This is one of them.

Pretty enjoyable read. The scenes full of action were well written, and the author is clearly knowledgable about weapons and some survivalcraft. The Soviet-style collapse the book portends is seeming pretty plausible right about now too.

However, the book can get up its own ass a bit too much with some of the philosophizing. I guess to make the protagonist into a sort of warrior poet? Those bits weren’t all bad but sometimes it sounded like the author consulted a thesaurus to pull out some ten dollar words.

The book would probably make a pretty decent Netflix movie, and I’d read another book of this sort by the author.
