Oh dear. The worst thing about this book is that I think Rawles actually believes the validity of his stories, as he is a genuine prepper. It’s sad because he has actually written a good manual on survival but cant write fiction to save his life.
I reviewed his second book survivors and generously gave it an average rating but I can’t do the same here. It is utter fantasy, total rubbish, a gross travesty. He is trying to relive the American Revolution and it just falls flat on its face.
C’mon Rawles, the evil UN and German mercenary’s invading the American mainland and forcing good God loving Yankees to live under a tyrannical dictatorship is just too much to bear. Its so cheesy and so riddled with hypocrisy I hate your one-dimensional characters I hate the story and I hate your preachy attitude. Stop milking this dying cash cow. Put some passion into your books and stop writing rubbish with your self as the hero characters. The only good thing I can say about this book as it’s the final in the trilogy and I doubt anyone will publish anything of his again.

I wish they would have told me that this was just a crapy version of cliff notes to the first two books. My guess is Mr. Rawles needed an addition to his bunker so he pasted and clipped his way to this novel. Really you could not have any more detail? Why would you re-hash so much from the first two? Because it was already written and easy to do. Mr. Rawles you are better then that.
For the first time reader I will say buy the first two books they were OK, but then just re-read the first two and you have the third. I feel bad for his publisher he got hosed on the thrid book on the contract.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
First of all Patriots is one of my favorite books, and I read Rawles blog every day. Having said that...Survivors and Founders have been a real disappointment. The writing in this last book Founders was sub-par and the Narrator made it so much worse. His girl voice is laughable and I don't know how Phil Gigante has a job narrating books. By the way I lissen to about 5 books every month and have been for the last 3 years.....I know good narrators and this one sucks. As of right now I am 3/4 through the book and I will finish it because those credits will not be wasted... but yes this was a waste of a credit! I am so sorry to say this James but Really? who is your editor because they need to be fired.
Ok onto the story or lack thereof.....So many wasted pages of non interesting religious topics and half hearted hollow love stories, has made the book tedious to lissen to...and to rehash old stories from other books and use precious pages of your new book is such a waste. I guess what I was expecting from the title "Founders" was that I wanted a continuation of the first book...or at-least the same story from a different perspective. The book is mainly the boring parts of Patriots rehashed.
I am sorry James but I will have to pass on your next book until it is recommended to me by someone else who wants to risk wasting a credit.
Aloha and Mahalo
