Publisher's Summary

In this final book of the 299 Days series, The 43 Colonels celebrates the many "ordinary" men and women who did extraordinary things during and after the Collapse. Set in the chambers of the New Washington Legislature during a joint session of the House and Senate, Governor Ben Trenton honors Colonel Grant Matson and 42 other individuals who helped start the Restoration. From a personal trainer who became a spy disguised as a water boy, to a homeschooling mom who protected children's minds from Loyalist propaganda, to a young computer hacker who used his skills to get classified information to Oath Keepers, and a Special Forces operative who conducted some amazing missions, the stories of these modern-day Patriots, both heart-wrenching and inspirational, demonstrate how anyone can help in a revolution.

Excellent Compliment to the Original Series

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.

rambling, boring, wanted to like but couldn't.

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.

The 43 Colonels! Brilliant.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is the perfect end to the series as it pulls stories together from all over and from the people everywhere who helped through the collapse recorded in the book. A Role call of heroes. I got The 43 Colonels first as I'd read through all the others in the series. A Brilliant book end to the story line!

What other book might you compare 299 Days: The 43 Colonels to and why?

The other 9 books in the series, there really ins't anything else quite as practical and engrossing in the 'prepper fiction' space.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Pierce – was your favorite?

The roll call was the best part, as each individual was called forward for honor. Kevin Pierce sounded as if he knew each of them as the character did. A really great job!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Teh end. To be honest I've been in this series for a while now as each book has come out, It will be strange to be without the characters. they've become like friends!

Any additional comments?

I couldn't imagine how Glen Tate could top the first nine - but now I know. I love how he wrapped up the story with a bow here in book ten. Again, a great series, wonderfully executed!

Unnecessary in the Series

This is, what they term in law, is a gap filler. Ostensibly a session of the legislature. Just imagine if the said session was 8 hours long.

I truly enjoyed the series but this felt like left over editorializing (don’t get me wrong I tend to agree with the author’s arguments) which grew tiresome. One of my pet peeves is false humility and this reeks of it.

Long winded

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would have made it shorter

If you’ve listened to books by Glen Tate before, how does this one compare?

I have listed to this entire series. It was pretty good but redundant at times....

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Kevin Pierce always does a great job!

Did 299 Days: The 43 Colonels inspire you to do anything?

Buy more non perishable.

Any additional comments?

Over all a good read...Just long winded.....

An Unfortunate Final Book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The basic concept of this final book is a summary of 43 Colonels and I believe was added for purposes of revenue and is not integral to telling the story. If you want to add to the profits of the publisher and the author then by all means but nothing would have improved this book.

Has 299 Days: The 43 Colonels turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Which scene was your favorite?

None

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Profit for the publisher and author. It let me angered that I was deceived.

Very Anticlimactic

This book is the totally unnecessary and anticlimactic end to an otherwise entertaining series. It's hard to believe how utterly dull this book is after having enjoyed the first nine books in the series. The 43 colonels applauded in this book are all real life people the author has met and decided to thank by making them characters in his book series. How about a really nice, long dedication in book 9? Colonel James Yeager? Really?

Disappointed

All the other books in series were great and informative. But this last book was a disappointment, it's was boring listening to all the long stories on who did what for the Patriots. Speeches too long and Ben adding his part every time. I was expecting a better ending.

Don't waste your time or your money

Such a disappointing end to a great series. No real story ending, no real answers for the Patriots future, just a boring rehash of the too quick to be believable war, and the story of 43 "Heroes" of that war.
I so enjoyed the other 9 stories, even though there were times I wanted to say"Get on with it already"!
Couldn't even listen thru this. After the first few chapters I did a quick skip thru to the last few chapters.
Bad bad bad ending to a fun to listen to series

For me, was not as good as the rest of the series.

I very much enjoyed the other books in the series. This one seemed a bit out of place and felt like a forced way to wrap up the plot. I would have much preferred a continuation that showed how life evolved after the point where the previous book ended. But, I'm not the author, and this is only my personal preference. I'm sure others would find the approach in the final book as a fitting end to an otherwise engaging and enjoyable series.

a roundup well done

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 book too far.

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.
