I was hooked from the 1st chapter. There are some twists and turns that keep you wondering who is who and which way they will go until the end. The characters are great and multi dimensional. It's a great book!
I am a fan of Glenn Beck TV, but the plot of this book seemed unrealistic to me. I think that was his intention. I believe he thinks that if he makes far enough out of our realistic possibilities that something more mild that we previously would have thought was not possible, but only just so, becomes possible. I am not really a judge of political thrillers, but the plot in this book seemed too much of a stretch for me to really enjoy.
So-o much better than reading a dry non-fiction documentary type book. This book got it's point across in an entertaining, thought provoking and exciting story form. I loved it! I think this book is a "must read".
Great story and very well written. I was not expecting such a well written novel with a powerful plot.
I can't wait for his next novel!
I would highly recommend.
Interested in everything History,Biology,Astronomy,Physics,Chemistry,Theology,Mysteries,Science Fiction,Drama, and much more!!
If you have been watching Glenn's TV show, the you will be see how he weaves current events into a not so far fetched plot the looks a lot like current day events. It is surprising entertaining, thoughtful,and disturbing since the story is a look into current events in our beloved country.
Note to progressives: you will hate this book as it exposes a great deal of the progressive agenda. Note to the rest of the world: you will be amazed & enlightened as Beck reveals how we have all been manipulated by the world's media spin doctors, PR firms, & politicians that 'run' our countries. Once again, EVERYone I know is getting a copy of this book from me. OUTSTANDING read!
Glenn Beck's novel is a fun summer thriller. The writing isn't as good as in Stieg Larsson's very adequate trilogy, at the same time, it isn't as merely passable as the exposition laden Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
If you want to turn your mind off and just enjoy a good thriller, this novel fits the bill. If you want something to think about to think about, this novel will also fit the bill.
this is a great modern day thriller. much more interpersonal than raw action, but a great mind opener to possibilities that could be reality without engagement! i am a Beck fan anyway, but really liked his fiction work.
I've been a Glenn Beck radio fanboy for 6 years or so. This book just sucked. Plot? Average. WAY too much dialogue. It seemed like conversations lasted for pages and pages. And it doesn't help that the narrator needs to take an acting class. I desperately wanted this book to sing to kill his critics. No such hope. Just more fodder for the MSNBCers.
This was one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. Mr. Beck's vision of what is going on in our country today is uncanny. God bless him and I am waiting for his next.
