Instructional book. Well written and narrated!

If you could sum up The Bug Out Gardening Guide in three words, what would they be?

Just get started

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bug Out Gardening Guide?

Who knew Aspirin could be a fertilizer?

Which character – as performed by Charles Orlik – was your favorite?

It's instructional, not a story.. I guess the Narrator was my favorite.

Any additional comments?

This is a straight forward book on gardening in stressful situations. It's written to be easily understood. Charles Orlik has a great voice, he doesn't irritate or drone while narrating.

Love it!

Wow! I love this book. I just wish I would have known all this before I planted all my flower beds. It is so simple & logical. I can't wait for the weather to warm up. I have caught the gardening bug.

Good tips even if you aren't bugging out!

I understand that this is written with a specific agenda in mind, it is still good information to have even for the casual, non-green thumb kind of person. The narration is smooth and easy to listen to. I wasn't sure if I would find an audiobook on this topic helpful, but I did!

Lots of info!

What made the experience of listening to The Bug Out Gardening Guide the most enjoyable?

There was lots of useful information on gardening in general. Most things can be used now, in addition to a SHTF scenario.

What about Charles Orlik’s performance did you like?

His voice was clear and read in a way that you could hear the difference sections for different topics.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

It has a mock Miracle Grow recipe that I'm going to try this year.

Any additional comments?

I will be purchasing a physical copy of this book because it includes recipes and notes that would be nice to see just so nothing is forgotten.

This review copy audio book was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge via Audiobook Boom.

The whole point of this is for survival when it absolutely matters. I am a fan of post-apocalyptic movies and books. I would always think that someday it might happen. Whether it happens or not, in case of disasters and we need to evacuate, this will be handy.

Love the DIY miracle grow and homemade insecticides and fertilizers. Everything is done from scratch with proper planning and tool. The book even laid out a list of items to bring.
