Summary

In 299 Days: The Stronghold, the fourth book in the 299 Days series, Grant Matson begins teaming up with others who will help the community of Pierce Point become a Patriot stronghold, ready to stand against government Loyalists, the Undecideds and the Oblivious. Using the United States Constitution as a guide, they develop a sense of order and begin planning for a future that shows no sign of improving. Outside of Pierce Point, the country continues its downward spiral. The Feds are rationing food and gas and playing favorites while some states are choosing to “opt out” of the Federal Government. Scrappy street gangs have made way for sophisticated white collar gangs who, along with government officials, participate in bartering and bribery of every kind. Vigilantes are loose everywhere, and those working for what is left of the government don't know if they're with the good guys or bad guys. The Pierce Point Patriots prepare to defend their land, their families, and their beliefs, even if that means going up against those in their community who are loyal to the government and all things that lead to the Collapse of America.

Way to short for the money

Two or three of these books should be combined to make the purchase worthwhile.

Slow moving

I liked it in the beginning books but now it is just going so slow, and dragging every thing out to make more books. The plot of each book is smaller with each book.

Extremely well done!

What made the experience of listening to The Stronghold the most enjoyable?

I feel like I'm listening to my own story. Everything Grant and the community is going through with setting up a working community. It's a lot more difficult than you would think and the struggles and successes are all in the book. It is amazingly written and read by a fantastic narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Stronghold?

When the team first had to kill someone in the community. Heartbreaking.

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

The characters are jumping out of the book into life. Extremely well read. This Glen Tate guy is reading my mind, and this Kevin Pierce guy is speaking my mind.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

America is collapsing to her knees and being weighed down by the chains of limas. One community fights back for liberty and freedom without the need for a government. One community will break the chains and set liberty free.

Any additional comments?

A lot of "prepper" fiction is, well, weird. Not 299 Days. I feel 100% comfortable suggesting this to my "normal" friends and family. The book is an eye opener to the possibilities of what can be accomplished without government and how actual freedom could look.

Excellent series

The 299 days series is one of the best breakdown genres ever written. Realistic, raw, and based in truth.

Good yet rushed at times.

Gideon is an automaton? Their is little to no human dissention in the masses. Other than one main antagonist leading a tiny gaggle, all other inhabitants of this little slice of heaven seem far too easily lead by the nose. That's getting nearly impossible to gloss over. Let us face facts: people have strong dissenting ideas at every single turn. Civilians anyway, military on far less a scale. This story is mainly about ordinary citizens. The "group think" presented detracts from the believability of the story presented IMHO. I will still yet likely continue with the series. 🤔

Repetitive.

First books started out fair. This one is repetitive and over detail to the point of boredom.

Every female is either a chick, gal or "foxy"

Would be a reasonably acceptable book were it not for the unmitigated misogyny. The lead character is a joke. Sad.
