Bill Ward’s review 5 of 5 stars
March 20, 2015
This is a fun action adventure set in the near future when the world has a terrible food shortage and as a result society is falling apart. Ben and his family initially are able to barricade their home and fight off criminals looking to steal food. However, they decide to set off on a journey to find greater security at a camp protected by soldiers. The main part of the story is about their journey and the people they encounter, some good but mostly violent and after their food supplies.
The action is non stop and the background of a crumbling society provides an interesting commentary on mankind and the desperate lengths people will go to in order to try and survive.
This is a real page turner and I look forward to reading more by this author.

A heart pounding adventure full of action, suspense, and chilling human behavior. I literally had goosebumps.
Society for Supper describes our near future where a drought has caused major food shortages throughout the world. When the ‘implausible’ happens and it spreads to North America most are left panicked and unprepared. A good majority of people adopt a brutal kill or be killed mentality that deeply affects the daring Donnelly family. They are eventually forced from their home by looters who progressively become more violent, beginning a dangerous journey for safety.
The writing style is both professional and natural, allowing the story to seamlessly flow. The imagery is vivid, effortless, and descriptive, immersing the audience in a chilling, intense world. I would classify this as a true horror story because unlike vampires and ghouls this is a very possible, terrifying concept.
I would highly recommend to anyone looking for excitement and adventure with a sprinkling of terror. I will definitely read more from this author.

What would you do if the end of the world arrives?
Do you like dystopian novels such as The Road, The Walking Dead, Y:The Last Man? If so, you are in luck because this is the book you were looking for.
First, I would like to congratulate the author because the way he writes. His writing is very direct, intense and professional. Second, the story is as great as Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, for real.
In Society for Supper the world is dying because a severe and worldwide drought. As you can imagine then, food is scarce and people will do everything – trust me when I say “everything” – to survive.
The book tells you the story of Ben Donnelly and his family, a normal family that will have to work together and support each other so that they can survive the inhospitable place that has become America. I liked very much the characters that Ben and his family met during this running adventure…not all of them are how you believe they are at first sight…and I said enough…
The chapters that I liked the most were the ones related to the woods…some parts gave me goose bumps. A totally must have and hoping the author to continue the story with a second part.
