The group the story is focused around seems to look for trouble. Ambushing and conducting unlawful searches of law-abiding citizen at gun point. Decent story just one of the 1st books I wouldn't mind where the story's heroes getting taken out.
Yes, but not for the story or the performance.
The writing style of soliloquy followed by a list is, at best, stilted.
The information was useful and/or thought provoking. The writing style was an odd mix of documentary and an attempt at fiction.
1) Communist cannibal looters...seriously?
2) drive= to operate a motor vehicle. If you are behind the wheel, even if you are "traveling" you are also driving.
This is not a story, it is a survivalist manual and instruction guide disguised as a fiction novel. This was 20 painful hours that I can never get back. 20 hours....seriously, with zero character development and background or prose you wouldn't think reciting supply lists, gun types, parts, and ammo, and fortification strategies would take that long. Some how this author manages it though.
What makes this the most painful is that I actually agree with some of the foundational philosophy! I consider myself a constitutional conservative. But the same way Westborough Baptist makes all Christians look bad, this guy makes conservative gun fans and peepers look like nut jobs. Save to 20 hours and the credit and research prepping and survivalism online. It will take less time and be cheaper and less painful in the long run.
I tried my best to listen to this...but I couldn't do it. I kept falling asleep. I'm sure this book will appeal to some who love to get into the details of prepping. (And I mean details!) But if you're looking for a good story...keep looking.
it's very "PG" and sterile, not typical of how a bunch of adults would talk. Dialog is very unnatural, and unrealistic, and combined with the way the narrator made the different voices, was very hard to listen to. this would probably be more appropriate for a teen reader, or younger "virgin" ears.
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.
