    299 Days: The Preparation, the first audiobook in the 299 Days series, depicts the inner struggles Grant must face as he exists in a social system he recognizes as unsustainable and on the verge of collapse, but one in which he has built his life around. What begins as a return to his roots, self-sufficiency and independence, becomes a full blown move to prepare for what may come.

    What would have made 299 Days better?

    Mr. Tate is not an exhilarating writer, nor is Mr. Pierce an exceptional reader


    What could Glen Tate have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Many people agree that there will be problems in America in the future. But I hope Tate doesn't mislead people about how to store food for long term prepping. If you are serious about storing food, you should read several of the Morman articles about food storage, such as shelf life of flour, grains, etc. Rice and Beans are good, but unless the end comes within a year, those pancakes might be poor eating. Same for a number of other things he stored.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment. Quit beating in the point with a hammer. I got it the first time you said it's a false economy, and explained it. the rest is just beating a dead horse.

    If society collapsed, could you survive? When Morgan Carter's car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country's power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored - if it ever will be.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Not the best "end of life as we know it"


    What about Duke Fontaine’s performance did you like?

    His delivery is good. I would read other books read by him.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is interesting, but I found his conspiracy pretty weak. And apparently the ladies in Florida are pretty weak. His main lady was just a nothing. Shoot him in the head indeed. I think you should visit a few Texas ladies. You might find they'd only shoot you in the head on purpose.

    The Duncan brothers just wanted to get away - so they decided to take a stress free trip to the South Pacific Islands. Their six month trip turned into both a blessing and a curse. In what seemed like the blink of an eye, the world turned completely upside down. The events of "The Day" transpired out of their comprehension and control and changed the course of history and the world as they've always known it. Their trip to the remote island of Rahiti seemingly saved their lives, but also alienated them from the life they once knew.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one


    What could Sean Donovan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm not sure he could. It's poorly written


    How could the performance have been better?

    This book reinforces my previous opinion that authors should NEVER read their own books. I failed to notice he was reading his own book or I would have never bought it. I'm sure there are exceptions but this is not one.


    Any additional comments?

    This book reads like it was written by a sad lonely nerd that wants to make himself the best of society and has no idea that real popularity is.

    Stressed out ad-exec Dakota wandered into Catamount Outfitters in search of a guide for a wilderness excursion. She didn't expect to be greeted by not one but five of the most ruggedly delicious-looking men she'd ever seen... not to mention a live cougar guarding the shop!

    Would you try another book from Anna Leigh Keaton and/or Gina Cedarwood?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Anna Leigh Keaton’s story?

    This story had no redeeming qualities.


    What didn’t you like about Gina Cedarwood’s performance?

    Her childish voice did nothing to enhance what is a poor story. And the childish tones certainly didn't help the supposedly lurid sex scenes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Pity
