I loved how the book plays on faction; melding conjecture with facts in a fictional scenario.
This proved to be a highly imaginative book but yet disturbing how close and real this could happen. This book takes conspiracy theories and turns it around to seem plausible.
Many principles are learned in this book on both sides of the conspiracy and there is a keen display of what our founding fathers intended for us woven in a way that seems plausible and very believable.
This is one book I will enjoy playing over and over again.
Noah is the main character and he is easy to like. My favorite characters are either Hollis or Noah's father and for very different reasons.
Hollis seems down to earth and you get a sense of him that he has hidden wisdom that is only learned in life and not from book knowledge. He teaches in very clear ways without being arrogant.
Noah's father is a favorite since he shows me how dark and controlling people can be without conscience.
Very much so but life happens.
I'm a retired professional. I enjoy canning, reading, sewing and painting on china. I'm fortunate to have four children and six grandchildren.
I like the story way of telling present and future history. It made me put some occurrences together and look to future possibilities
I didn't care at all about the characters. I forced myself to continue this book because I really don't like quitting a book. But this one is worth quitting.
Anything with the two main characters in it.
As events today often appeared to be impossible not long ago, this book reveals how the changing public perception and acceptance can be influenced by manipulation. As one with a sales and marketing background, I found myself frequently nodding with understanding while listening to the audio version.
If one steps back from the obvious "conspiracy" nature of this, the book can be viewed as a metaphor encouraging us all to be diligent in insisting that our elected officials return to Founding Principles. If the American experiment fails, it is because "We the People" have forgotten that in America we are in charge-not the elected officials, not the bureaucrats, not the businesses. We must take back our power.
A good book, that kept me intrigued throughout. I like the story line the characters seemed a little too "stereotypical" at times. I found a lot of similarities to the Star Wars trilogy (1st and best).
