Another flat prepped book where women are portrayed as idiots

The writing is shallow and the main character is an idiot.......oblivious to the world around her and easily manipulated by her spouse. I would get out my 9 and shot my kindle before I would read the next book. Oh, and the southern accent seemed silly. Please ya'all, just keep it.

Good lord, the narration..

It's like trying to enjoy a book while a high-pitch buzz-saw is going off nearby. Glad I only paid for this preface chapter, and not the entire book.

Painless Prepping

This is the prequel to Book 1 by Mrs. Glaspy. This book contains very useful
information about smart budgeting tips and meal planning so that money
can be freed up to purchase supplies. Purchasing was done weekly, and
monthly, and over time they assembled what they would need.

Also they acquired knowledge via the internet and an old couple.

The main couple enlisted their best friends to join them and then they
got an older couple with a farm to join them. The older couple taught them
a lot about living off the grid - how to butcher animals, planting, preserving
food, etc.

Very encouraging book making preparing seem doable not daunting.
Just start and do a little at a time. Make some minor lifestyle changes.

Keep your preps confidential. Loads of practical tips. It does not matter
if you know some of this stuff, reminders are useful!

Nice relationship between husband and wife. Loving.

Fake Southern Accent!

The story line seemed to be an exaggerated spoof, on a stereo typical southern working class couples paranoia induced “Prepping”. Why the ridiculous fake southern coastal accent from the 19th century? If I tried to convince anyone in a serious nature to listen to this story for an introduction to being prepared for a extended emergency scenario, most would think it to be a skit off of “Saturday Night Live” making fun of those of us that take this serious.

Didn't even finish this book

Any additional comments?

I know this is a intro book for the series but it does not make me want to listen to the rest of the series at all. I didn't even finish the book it so didn't engage me.

Realistic, descriptive introduction to the series.

I love the narrator! She brings the story to life. very animated, reminds me of me. Can't wait for the series to come.
