The writing style is disjointed and difficult to follow. Rawles jumps from character to character with no real pattern, he also jumps from 2 years before the crunch to 15 years before the crunch to 4 years after crunch and back and forth. I can't tell if this is a prequel or a sequel or a stand alone book. There are many of the same characters from Survivors and a couple of new ones. It is very obvious that Rawles is a religious person but the 10-15 pages that he explains the religious beliefs of one of main characters does NOTHING to move the story forward and in fact it slows it to a crawl and adds NOTHING to the story. If you are looking for survival ideas or tactics, keep looking... This book doesn't even have the same level of "product reviews" that Survivors had. There are no new tactics or ideas that he didn't all ready introduce in the last book. Religion is a constant and I do mean constant theme throughout the book and while I agree with him that in a survival situation that faith is important; I disagree with his unstated premise that only people that turn everything over to God and pray 60 times a day are going to survive and thrive post collapse.
The book has no major grammatical errors and in that respect is easy to read but the timelines that he uses is...well... in a word HORRIBLE!Read more ›
I was disappointed in Survivors.
Founders was both a waste of my money and my time.
I feel like I have been "had".
I try to do the best I can in everything I do professionally. That doesn't mean I always succeed but it means I take pride in what I do and I do my very best. I wonder if Mr. Rawles has alot of pride in this book and if he honestly feels it represents his very best? If it does, he did not write Patriots.
This book is disjointed - it has no flow. It jumps around from timeline to timeline with no connectivity. The same can be said for the story threads - they don't tie together. More than half the book I've already read in previous books by the same author. That's not writting - that's called copying at best and lazyness at worst.
And as a conservative Christian I can and do say enough is enough. I already have my own Christian beliefs..I don't need to read ad naseum about the Christian beliefs of these fictional characters in a post apocolyptic setting. I read these types of books to both entertain and to learn - I'm sorry Mr. Rawles there is nothing y ou can teach me about Christianity that I cannot get from a much better book on that subject - stick to what you know and what is the purpose of this book, leave the theology to those that were truely divinely inspired (I can honestly stay after reading this book - you sir are not).
I have my own theories...Read more ›
