Publisher's Summary

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?

Planted Reviews - be careful with your purchase...

I have a weakness for prepper & disaster books and was very aware this series was coming out in the near future and planned on picking up the first one right away, and all of them if they were good. I was surprised how quickly the reviews for this series appeared... and was delighted everyone liked it.

My friends, most of these reviewers only own one audiobook and have only done one review... I know because after I forced myself to listen to the entire book... I went back to see who the idiots were that gave the book a 5 star award.

I don't expect the writing to be amazing in this genre, but I would at least like to learn something or a creative slant. This is just a tangential, unedited, repetitive, boring, semi-autobiographical, plot less, self-important, extremist political rant... by a prepper podcaster with a following... who I honestly think means well.

I wanted to like it, wanted to find the good in it and kept thinking... it will get better anytime now. But it didn't happen. There is no violence, swearing or sex in this book, just a little pissing off the porch and repetitive gun purchases. No incredible information either, though... sorry. And the writing... is just wrong, you will know what every character in the book is thinking, jumping from head to head to head in the same short sentence.

The narrator wasn't bad in other books I've listened to... but the material he is reading combined with the poor flow of sentences... makes him sound slow and the listen painful.

Watch closely, I am about to have major not helpful votes attached to my review.

As a prepper I enjoyed this book

I wished we could all have a setup as perfect as the character in the book. There were some good suggestions for beginner preppers too. Unfortunately most of us don't have the money or space to do so. Also, I really struggled to identify with the character as a hillbilly lawyer
Mr Tates political bias really showed. I'm sure that was on purpose. In my experience the Libertarians are a little too extreme. I'm not ready to give up on the system just yet.

Patriot propaganda

This book is filled to the brim with tea party propaganda and government hating patriotism. Its also filled with guns and constitution.

As a norwegian living in the worlds most happiest country, who also has one of the largest governments in the world, while also having some of the lowest crime rates in the world, i laugh alot of the politics uttered inside this book.

But bad propaganda aside, the story is very entertaining. I like to call this a guilty pleasure, or dumbtainment. My mind shuts off and i enter the universe of the Matsons, and thats exactly what i like about this series.

I am now in book 5, and i have just decided to buy the 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 as well. I am going through these rather fast.
