    • For any man who s ever wanted to be a Hero With a Gun but was too gutless to join the military or police force, and any woman who wants to hide out in the backwoods of Idaho with said asshole and bear his children, this book is a must read Invaluable advice is offered for example, it s okay to waste ammo pumping multiple rounds into the corpses of Gay Communist Cannibals, because, as the hero points out, They can t be dead enough Rawles also instructs you on how to ambush and destroy an Abrams t [...]


    • Thank God this is over with This is not a story This is 300 pages about guns, stuff you need should the economy ever collapse, and about 20 characters that are all the same person It s very random, it s very boring, and it s very subjective to this one guy s ideas of what would happen should the economy ever die for realz Yeah I could say it s worth reading just because he does give a list of stuff it would be nice to have in such a situation, but really, don t waste your time Just visit a survi [...]


    • Wow I learned a lot from this book.I learned how to mount a gun on my airplane.I learned how to treat bullet wounds.I learned that you can tell whether someone is a good guy or a bad guy by the following means if they have high quality guns that they take care of, they are probably a good guy if they have low quality guns in disrepair, they are probably a bad guy Everyone carries around a book or other text because that is the only possible source of morality If it is a bible, they are a good gu [...]


    • In a way I d like to do 2 things here First I d like to be able to rate this higher I believe that the idea of a possible collapse of some kind isn t all that far fetched I d seen the power go down in areas of Nashville for as much as 2 weeks and it got bad Any kind of complete collapse would lead to massive death and even horror This could have been and should have been an interesting book TOO MANY BOOKS ON THIS TOPIC CROSS OVER INTO FRINGE BELIEFS This one doesn t do that It s just not very in [...]


    • So I ve decided to stop reading this one although I m not quite finished I can t take it any As a lot of other people have said, the format for this book is really odd If you like lists you might really like this book There are lists of every blood type and what types of blood those types can receive, lists of every kind of gun with the types of rounds that those guns shoot and what you might like to shoot with those guns, lists of food items, tools, and processes Even step by step order for ho [...]


    • Fourteen years ago, when I first left the military, I did a lot of reading and research on the militia movement in the United States This was only a few years after the Oklahoma City bombings, and I had met a few militia types while in the service One of the books I heard referenced over and over again was called The Turner Diaries, so of course I read it The Turner Diaries is one the most vile books ever written it is a racist screed that is so horrific that I couldn t help but laugh out loud a [...]


    • Anyone who knows me knows I like post apocalyptic fiction And I like almost any of it However, I did not like Patriots Surviving the Coming Collapse.This book seems to be less of a novel than a cross between James Wesley Rawles personal fantasies diatribes on the state of the Union.Don t get me wrong, he has done an admirable job of researching in order to supply facts to explain his opinions has an index in case you want to look it up yourself, but that s part of what makes this less of a novel [...]


    • I bought this book after looking at the high overall score it got, and after reading a few of the good reviews How I wish I would have read some of the 1 star reviews before buying it This book is without a doubt the worst novel I have ever read in my life Where to begin First off, there is no real story involved here There are probably 20 pages of blather in between every plot progression in the book The plot will progress a little bit, then Rawles will spend the next 4 or 5 pages describing in [...]


    • 1 star novel2 star survival manual4 star product catalogas a novel, the characters are all exactly the same, the plot is stretched, and the clumsiness of it all hurts the eyes as a survival manual, the actual skills involved tend to be sketchy at best, But this book truly shines as a product catalog for Rawles sponsors I didn t count the number of times he talked of his characters doing something like taking a firearms course at frontsight training in california or talking about mountain home fr [...]


    • As a regular reader of James Wesley Rawles s Survival Blog, I was interested to hear what a novel written by him would sound like Knowing he s a conservative Christian libertarian, I expected a big dose of hatin on Obama and probably a bunch of atheist liberals getting what s coming to them, but in fairness, the author mostly keeps the right wing vitriol in check until the latter part of the book But when it does emerge, boy does it ever.The first thing to know is that Rawles clearly hopes this [...]


    • Anyone who voted for Obama would likely shred this for their cat s litter box They are exactly the people who should read it, and do so while abstaining from political judgment The novel s extremely strong qualities are a a decent intro to the mechanics of family or small group survival in the event of a catastrophic economic event and folks if you don t think this is possible, watch the reality TV show in production called My Big Fat Greek Economic Meltdown , b As extremely wooden as the charac [...]


    • Contrary to the assertions of many reviews, Patriots did have an editor I have acquired a draft of actual proofreading notes from the editor of Patriots I am not at liberty to say how I acquired these notes, or who delivered them to me, so don t ask Here are some representative quotes from those notes I m not seeing enough lists here These lists are a literary goldmine The reader will eat those up like Halloween candy More lists The reader needs to know about the character s firearms and ammuni [...]


    • This book is one of my favorite Scary future books because I don t really see us that far off The dollar is obviously inflating Our structure and Just in time delivery of food and materials means hospitals do not have a deep reserve of supplies necessary to treat a large number of victims in an emergency This book also really highlights the big part of what is needed to seriously prepare for a major emergency of any sorts Now, I have 1 issue with the book beside the fact that it s action than t [...]


    • I had prepared a comprehensive review of this novel, complete with textual citations, so that I could thoroughly detail the deficiencies in the writing, the laziness in the plotting, and the general awfulness of the philosophy underlying it However, after the concluding chapter, in which our plucky band of Christian survivalists overthrows the occupying UN army, restores the gold standard, and sends an army to liberate Europe from the socialists, I decided I ve spent as much time as I can stand [...]


    • I was a kid in the late seventies when the Survivalist movement began to get attention.The energy crisis, stagflation, increasing tensions between the U.S.S.R and the U.S.A and other things fueled the movement Within a very short while it was big business as novels, movies and consumer items catered to those who were involved ,or at least interested, in the movement Things slowed down in the 90 s, but thanks to the current social economical political situation the Survivalist movement is once ag [...]


    • What are the chances the power goes out, for good Not from an asteroid crash that wipes out everything and that you can t do anything about But call it from garden variety apocalypse You lose refrigeration You lose the water systems You lose ATMs and gas stations Say from terrorism or currency collapse Hmmm.Realistically, the answer is nobody can say for sure what the odds of no power are But that just states the problem another way, or begs the question should you prepare for it You can pretty [...]


    • This book should appeal to survivalists and militia types Though I found some of the descriptions of weapons and equipment interesting at times, they became tedious as they went on and on The dialogue was a bit hokey and lifeless I can t remember the last time I used the word yikes in a real conversation The beginning of the story seemed somewhat plausible but it gradually became less and less believable The civil war seemed very far fetched The characters were a bit too stereotypical and one di [...]


    • What a very disappointing book For someone with so much knowledge this was an epic fail I am all about a great prepping end of the wold book but this wouldn t even make my top 50 in this category Besidesthe fact that he needs to fire or hire an editor due to the never ending errors it s unrealistic one dementional caracters This was poor


    • For those of you who dont know, I have a non merman little brother as well It seems just like yesterday when he was wearing diapers to school Anyways, he is the most noble of the Rosses, if only one of us can make it to heaven, it will with out a doubt be him Proof He has willingly left the U.S to teach 1st world norms at a finishing school for the disadvantaged Now I dont take book recommendations lightly, so when he mentioned Patriots, well, lets just say I read it Here are some highlights fro [...]


    • The story behind this book is interesting, but it is not written very well It s about a group of friends who start preparing for the collapse of American society.The editing is poor and the time line is messed up This is most likely do to the fact that this is the third incarnation of this basic story, hastily updated to include Obama For instance, when they met is nebulous because the author says that they met because of 9 11, but also that they met frequently after 9 11 Both cannot be trueThe [...]


    • Don t judge me, I would call it indulgence lit, but to be truthful, I am reading this novel for the practical knowledge and not for the entertainment value EDIT Having finished the book with troves to say about it little of it good , I would like to limit to just a small tirade I went into the book knowing that it was a survivalist manual veiled as a post apocalyptic world novel, so of course I expected mediocre characters, a plot driven story and obviously biased politics Despite the author s r [...]


    • A fictional novel about a group of survivalists, and what happens when the USA goes upside down into anarchy due to a currency that becomes worthless.When you read this book, realize it s purpose is about survivalism and what to do in survival scenarios versus a fictional work of entertainment Examples You learn repercussions to people s choices Bad decisions upfront lead to hardship later For example, at one point in the book, a guy can t trade his corvette to anyone for food, shoes, or guns, [...]


    • I had hoped that someone who is a popular blog writer with a following would be able to string a few words together in an entertaining way I was wrong This is a list of equipment broken up by short biographies of unrealistic people set in a world that I don t recognize.I agree that the loss of water, gas and banks would cause chaosbut I don t see much about how we get to that point beyond, It s their fault I expected a novel that might let me inside the mind of a survivalist This book gave no re [...]


    • This was a good book that got a little heavy at times and almost read like a survivalist manual than a novel at times That being said there are some very disturbing points to be made about this book The main point being the premise for the book, or the economic collapse that is told at the beginning of the book This reads almost as if it is taken from the very headlines of todays newspapers The other thing that is very disturbing is the amount of people that refuse to see that there is a very s [...]


    • One of the absolute best preparedness survivalist books on the market After reading dozens of these type books, I keep going back to this one as a resource Yes, the writing and story development are not the greatest Further, the book has a bit of a gun nut antigovernment focus, which may be annoying to many However, this book is packed with information and references which is its primary intent A great starting place for people interested in preparedness or survivalism.



    • Not a fan of this book Issues with spelling, grammar, bad storyline, and mixed up information, which is a huge detraction for me The concept is a good one and this is the third book I read recently about apocalyptic events occurring in the US , but the plot and storyline were unrealistic and unbelievable, at times I was disappointed to see that no major conflicts or trauma truly happened to our heroes until well over half way through the book Everyone approximately a dozen people lived together [...]


    • This author is able to write compelling narrative That s evident in the part of the story in which a simple traffic stop in North Carolina escalates into a situation in which excitable cops try to kill two startled guys who are guilty of no than driving with expired vehicle registration and harboring unconventional views of their rights.However, compelling narrative is not the author s objective If you want excitement, you re going to have to skim past a lot of other stuff to find such passages [...]


    • This is a survival preppers handbook couched around a storyline of a group of people who prepared for disasters.The story takes us from an economic meltdown and collapse of the US Government and society itself, one of a number of possible scenarios that the protagonists prepared for, all the way to a Civil War to throw off a UN puppet tyrannical government and the eventual reformation of the United States A plausible scenario given the current state of affairs with the trillions of dollar debt w [...]


    • Writing this review as I read If this is prepper porn , it s not very titillating Waaay too much militant behavior I m all for protecting yourself and bearing arms and refusing the governments illegal overreach, but the cocky macho weapons attitude of these characters is not one I subscribe to Chapter 6 7 totally lost any small shred of credibility the book may have had Hey fellas, I don t care if the government is wrong, out of bounds, and overstepping its authority and jurisdiction and I agree [...]
