Picking up where The Preparation ended, the collapse begins to unfold in this second book of the 299 Days series. In The Collapse, the government stops working, guns and ammo are in high demand, and a trip to the gas station has become a mission rather than an errand. Grant and the Team see these warning signs and know it is only the beginning, so they begin taking action to protect themselves and their loved ones. As they prepare to get out of dodge after a deadly incident in Grant's neighborhood, they will soon learn whether the preparations they made in Book One will be enough to survive the breakdown of society, or if they don't stand a chance against greed and violence in the face of a collapse. The resulting chaos and fear that begins to envelop the country will strip all of the characters of what they know to normal, and will require them to question what they will stand for, what they will stand up against, and, most importantly, who they will stand with.
Love this book and the series! Great voice over as well.
299 days the collapse
I think it's an excellent book because its fairly moderate. I don't care for extremes. I like the realistic characters. I like that its based on real events that have already happened or are presently playing out. I am a former soldier and am concerned the author may underestimate the involvement of the military. I expect the powers that be are more likely to over react to threats due to weakness, so I'm not so sure I agree but the general scenario is not unrealistic. Definitely makes you think, which seems the intent.
Enthralling but short
Great story. Just wish it were full length instead of half to 2/3 the length of other books I’ve paid the same amount for.
