So very boring. Especially when the author rambles on with nearly endless, itemized lists of gear, and gadgets. You would do better to just read a text book on prepping.
This book should be assigned reading for all public schools and colleges. As our government grows we keep losing our freedoms little by little. Since 11 September 2001 we have been losing freedoms by leaps and bounds. The government is no longer of the people by the people. The government now thinks of Constituionalist as the enemy. I worry for my grandchildren. It may take a war such as the one portrayed in this book to get us back to God and country.
Be sure to read Mr. Rawles' other books you won't be disappointed.
Really enjoyed the book. it flowed pretty smooth the majority of the times, only slow during some explanations of some tactics and equipment. If the 2nd book is on Audible I'll definitely buy that one as well.
I listen to books while driving, average 1000 miles a week. I'm torn because I enjoy these types of stories but I couldn't get past the narrator's voice. Main story telling was fine, sounded like the guy from 60 minutes. The different characters however the narrator missed the mark, they are all in their 20s to 40 but the narrator makes them all sound like slow or drunk senior citizens in my opinion. The female characters where even worse, sounded like meek quiet little girls.
I loved the book. I'm writing this review after listening to it for a second time. Loved all the characters and all of their stories throughout the novel. Definitely would recommend this to any friend.
I'm not very religious and I don't like it to be pushed on me and that was the sort of feeling I got while listening to this book.
The break down of weird details gets aggravating like describing the state troopers magazine holder in detail, I just don't understand why that's important to the listener. It could have been a great story but the delivery was just wrong for me.
When discussed around the campfire all gathered agreed, we may be very close to fighting tyrants in our country. Realistically, look around. Our education system, for years has been revising history, extolling the virtues of a new world order and turning out ill-prepared youth. Millennials, who have little grasp of our hard fought for freedoms. Dependent people willingly elect liars and those wanting to fundamentally change America and our way of life. I think a rebellion is on the horizon. Much of what Mr Rawles writes about may prepare some. Time will tell.
