Meet Grant Matson: lawyer, father, suburbanite husband who awakens to the fragility of modern society and embarks on a personal journey that introduces him to a world of self-reliance and liberation. 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.
Engaging, insightful, and a bit suspenseful, follow Grant's transition from a self-perceived "sheeple" to a full-blown "prepper". Will his fears come true? Is he an extremist? What if nothing happens? What if something does?

Just not that good.
The story is not very well written and the characters are pretty one dimensional. It's repetitive and just in bad need of editing. Book 1&2 could have been done in half the time. Its just not all that exciting and its pushing a specific viewpoint, no depth to the story,. I was surprised at the quality of the writing it after seeing all the great ratings and I actually returned it. But someone else in the family wanted to hear book 2 so I was honest and repurchased book 1 but returned book 2 after it was no better- I just can't see how this could be worth a 10 volume story ($150) and all the five star ratings.
Having someone edit it more and cut the length in half and it might have been a reasonable story. Also written characters that had more depth to them, the wife just doesn't ring true to an ER doctor at all and their are errors in the book such as thinking he had PTSD straight after an event - an ER doctor would not make such an obvious diagnostic mistake or spend most of the book crying or yelling or being shocked at peoples behaviour - just not realistic.
Yes, Kevin is a very good narrator.
It raises issues about the current state of affairs and about prepping for events that could happen, might help people think about how prepared they are for a disaster and get started on preparing.
I love dystopian novels and spend many hours listening to all kinds of audio books, this just doesn't make the grade for me. If you like a quality novel then give this a a miss and try Alas Babylon, Swan Song or One Second After.
