Summary:

America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city. As hordes of refugees and looters pour out of the cities, a small group of friends living in the Midwest desperately try to make their way to a safe-haven ranch in northern Idaho. The journey requires all their skill and training since communication, commerce, transportation and law enforcement have all disappeared. Once at the ranch, the group fends off vicious attacks from outsiders and then looks to join other groups that are trying to restore true Constitutional law to the country. Patriots is a thrilling narrative depicting fictional characters using authentic survivalist techniques to endure the collapse of American civilization. Listening to this compelling, fast-paced novel could one day mean the difference between life and death.

    Very Good, enjoyed the book, lots of detail, and history of the char. I did think this could have been split into several books and not been so fragmented at the end.

  • Robert Adams

    I was totally pulled into the book and characters, until the last 7 chapters. New characters popped up that played a major role with no development. The story went all over the place towards the end. Loved the book, then it went down hill.

  • Josh Rowan

    This book is a handbook to surviving a crash. I was surprised by the amounts of hardships people would go through to make it In a world WROL! I really enjoyed the book and it really opened my eyes to our possible future.

  • Brian Allen

    The book (and preparedness info contained therein) is pretty good, but the narrator was painful to listen to. His voice is good, but the accent and cadence destroyed the experience for me. I'm not sure if I'll go to the trouble of continuing the series.

    The book was fantastic! Unfortunately The narrator was terrible... His narration made everyone sound like 1930s James Cagney movies.... Nothing about his interpretations sounded modern... It was an awful experience and I'm an easy to please kind of guy. It was distractingly bad. What should've been a futuristic sci-fi experience turned out to be nothing more than a good research material for prepping read. I could not engage with the story.

    The plot was moderately predictable. While tedious at times, there's a decent amount of good info in the book. The Christian theme was a borderline brow beating and really detracted from my enjoyment of the book. I dont mind a Christian themes, but the so called Christians in this book actually made games out of killing people. That's sickening. I enjoy a good TEOWAWKI and this book did have its good points. I will not, however, be reading any more of the series.
