Publisher's Summary

Western Society is in a state of confusion, the industrial world is teetering on collapse, and it looks like things could continue to get worse. Agrarian blogger, historian, and "plain" preacher Michael Bunker has been living off of the grid for many years, and he has some advice for those living in the industrial/consumerist economy... Living an off off-grid life is achievable. It has been done for thousands of years, and it can be done today... It is quite possible that many people who have relied on a failing system for their means of survival will very soon find that they have made a mistake of historic proportions. Historic, because every major "classical" culture went down the same road our society is on today. This audiobook is about the lessons we should have learned, and what you can do to survive what history tells us must come next.

    Story
    "Religious Fundamentalist Manifesto!"
    Would you try another book written by Michael Bunker or narrated by James Killavey?

    Author should be more honest in the book decription on his fundementalist
    reasons behind the book. It was painful to listen to a few chapters and then I had to give up as the bible quotations were getting too much.
    I've requested a refund. Silly me should have read all the reviews first.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Bunker again?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Paniful to listen to.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sadness and disappointment.

    Story
    "Lots of good info"
    If you could sum up Surviving Off Off-Grid in three words, what would they be?

    Much useful advice


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author


    What does James Killavey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Reads very clearly - good pacing


    What did you learn from Surviving Off Off-Grid that you would use in your daily life?

    Lots of practical stuff about living without the power grid. Many of these things can be applied, not just in the event of a disaster, but as a way of saving money and living healthier in everyday life.


    Any additional comments?

    Really don't understand why some people are so upset about his faith. Yes, be believes and is not afraid to say it but that is not what the book is all about. It's all about very practical advice about not relying so much on something that could easily stop working for a few hours, a few days or a long time. Very practical advice about getting through such and event and preparing for such an eventuality.

    "Interesting perspective. Full of insight"

    I enjoyed the thoroughness of his paradigm, as well as the history. Thanks for a thought-provoking book that has changed my perspective on what it truly means to be sustainable and to survive.

    "Lots of good advice"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Like the boys scouts...we need to be prepared.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really. Not that kind of book. The past couple of days we had three power outages and it got me thinking about this book. I listened to it a while back but never really put any of its advice into practice. But, what if we lost power for a few days or weeks, not just a few hours? Frightening possibility. My family will never go completely off the grid like the author, but I am going to look into not becoming so dependent on the almighty 'grid."


    Any additional comments?

    Really didn't understand why a few people got so upset because the author talked about his faith now and then. That was very minor. The huge amount of practical advice was what the book was all about...not religion.

    "Great info"

    Loved the content and the viewers presented perspective. Was not a big fan of the readers style and the Christianity preaching crept in a few too many times. Even still, I recommend this for anyone looking to expand their knowledge and preparing to sever ties with the grid.

    "Be warned...This is a religious book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book might appeal to fundamentalist Christians who believe the world is at odds with God's will. It isn't enough to believe our modern society is flawed. You MUST believe it is EVIL.


    Has Surviving Off Off-Grid turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Only the heavy handed, uber-religious ones.


    What three words best describe James Killavey’s voice?

    Unmemorable average pleasant


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

    It is finite.


    Any additional comments?

    The author exhibits the unholy trinity of arrogance, close-mindedness, and irrationality. He spends more time lambasting the wicked world than proving his own points. Please please please make your points on their own merits and do not presume to tell me what I think and believe.Pride is one of the seven deadly sins, if you believe in that sort of thing.The author is overly pleased with himself and his apparent moral superiority.

    "Theological drivel"

    Most memorable moment:

    How much I struggled to get past the first three chapters. It is just the the theological ramblings of a mormon libertarian.

    Theological is fine.
    Mormon is fine.
    Rambling is fine.
    Libertarian is fine.

    Put together, it's crap put together by enablers that don't have better sense.

    "Some good information but slow"

    After I put the speed on 1.25 it was eaiser to listen to. Some good bits of information scattered throughout was enough to keep me listening.

    "Religious diatribes with little else"

    This book nothing more than a religious diatribe. Take out the religious ramblings about the authors personal beliefs, and there isn't much left.

    I purchased this book in the hopes of learning something about "Surviving Off Grid". I wasn't expecting an instruction manual on religion. Had I wanted an instruction manual on religion, I would have purchased one.

    I feel like the author misrepresented his book and took my money based on false pretenses. This is not honest. I actually expected that the book would have something to due with the title and the description, but it does not. It's a rambling religious diatribe couched in the guise of a guide to learning about off grid survival.

    Sincerely disappointed.
