299 days started out as a good series lots of potential but as it drug on I found the books to become repetitive and mired in juvenile descriptions of what a person with little to know experience or exposure to real life American war fighters see on TV and the idea that it was all about a look or a type of dress or gear was very lacking and worked to pull one out of the story. the biggest issue was when the main character starts hearing voices from God but it's described as " the outside thought" it becomes laughable and sophomoric with a touch of insulting like the author didn't want to say the main character was hearing from God to avoid the negative connotations that go along with hearing voices but instead was content to say the outside thought which was clearly supposed to be gods input on matters and then to decide in the final book to go ahead and address it as God felt like an epic waste of time if it's god thendon't avoid it because it's a story. overall save your money.

What did you love best about 299 Days: The 43 Colonels?
Volume nine is the best of Glen's books so far. It is a great continuation of the storyline and is an awesome listen and read for anyone interested.
What did you like best about this story?
Based on the series it is great to see the last part of the character arcs in the series. Glen does an excellent job of rounding out each character nicely.
Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have listened to Pierce's other work and I have liked everything he has done
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I do not respond very emotionally to most books so I cant say I laughed or cried but this book definitely twists you up inside.

This book actually made me tear-up and even cry a couple of times. I wasn't expecting such a reaction at all. The stories presented and the way they all are written, give a great finish to the story as a whole. Adding dimension and detail to the wider happenings of the changes we see in all previous books. It was great to be able to read it and re-live the moments.
A clever way of filling out the book series.
I am not too sure that the 43 vinuettes truly extended the series as the drive and friends that so bravely made the previous books had so much colour and character .... I missed them.
