Overview

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 book 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?

    I agree with the complaints I've read about the marketing ploy that has made this into a ten book series. So unless your willing to lay out $150 for the ten books, I would pass. That said, its a decent story and you would probably enjoy the read, but it does seem like the writer stretches things out as much as he can to make it into 10 books. He addresses topics that will interest you if you enjoy this genre and clearly draws from personal experience with them. I've read better prose, but again, its not a bad read and if you like this genre you will enjoy the story. Just be aware of what you are getting into when you start. A book that is better written and tells a complete story (not stretched out for marketing) is "Truth's Blood." Told from the man on the street point of view, it is an excellant read. If your even tempted to engage the ten book series by Glen Tate, I would suggest reading Truths Blood first. The storyline is as good if not better and you get an entire story in one book. Well edited with engaging charaters too!

    Well done!

    Great story and fairly well written. Much better novel than some others in the genre. Moves along at a good clip. Book two in the series is just as good.

    Fantastic

    After hearing an interview on the Gundudes podcast I was awaiting the release date of this series. So far I've only read the first book. It is scary how realistic it is. I live in the Pacific NW, where the book takes place so it hits home a little more for me. The author is very good about getting his firearms specs correct. Something you don't usually see in books or movies. I highly recommend this series.

    An effective telling of a message that too few people hear. If you have the slightest concern about the exploding reach and cost of government, or the "I'll live for today and let my grandkids pay" attitude of our society, it's worth a read.

    It’s better than usual prepper fiction. Love it or leave it. This one is a bit smarter than usual, so enjoy it for what it is.

    Lots of information!

    Although reading this as a fiction was a little difficult, the author included in sometimes excruciating detail very important and helpful information for a new prepper.

    Wow!

    I heard Glen Tate on quite a few podcast before I bought this book. I was not disappointed, great read, kinda scary how real it seems. Quite a few times things were brought up that I had already thought about. Looking forward to finishing the series, I'm sure the rest will be just as good!

    An excellent read. Author makes the story very real.

    If you know of the author, then you know that this book is based on his experiences. From child to adult, and how he moves back into a more prepared state of mind and living.

    The best thing about the book is that it has helped me see the real danger to America, and that is our own citizens and elected officials. There is no Doomsday event in this book, but a gradual slide, and that makes the story so much better.

    I have started the second book in the series, and highly recommend this to anyone, even someone who is not a "prepper." It presents the real world facts in an interesting, captivating story that everyone will take something away from.

    Good read

    If you can get past the over-use of spell check rather than an actual proof read its pretty good book. Some of the more believable character's than in alot of other survival genre books ive read.

    Realistic scenario for troubled times

    I loved this book....couldn't put it down! The preparation (hence the title) is what interested me the most. While some may see the behind the scenes work necessary for propper preparedness to be boring, I found this narrative to be insightful, thoughtful, and accurate. I was especially able to relate to the resistant wife motif, which worked well for the story and had me hooked almost immediately. Thank you for an accurate look at a future we may one day face.
