Parke and Beck collaborated on this possible rendition of the future. A dark and oppressive story that finally finds a sliver of light at its' conclusion, this narration fits the story line. January LaVoy brings the story to life with her nurturing and oppressed / optimistic rendition of the lead character's thoughts, compulsions towards freedom and hopes for the future generation. A possible look at what we might someday lose, this audio book should not be missed.
I was educated into oblivion but have overcome it and am having a wonderful life
I have to listen to books because when I read I become immobilized and sit and sit and sit. Before bed I can do that but not on every day that I have off. So I listen as I drive, do dishes, etc.
When "mother" just gave up and stopped walking the activity board. When there's no hope it's hard to keep on.
What past society / culture hasn't believed "it can't happen here"? To think that is human nature. Yet historical reports illustrate that when it happens it happens quickly. We need to pay attention to the local and municipal trends regarding private property, the right to use self defense, the right to worship. We have the most precious gift of all: personal freedom. Let's keep our eyes on the ball.
It is amazing what forces are at work. What is the basis for the need to control? Are they trying to do "good" or just fearful of their fellow man. Is it just greed or a need by the powerless to gain power. Is it still redistribution of wealth and resources? Why do men try to be God. They are only men. They are always trying to enforce their will over God's will on people because they don't know God. Too bad. Read the book and come to your own conclusions. The book is a good way to explore the world under the rule of Agenda 21.
Interested in everything History,Biology,Astronomy,Physics,Chemistry,Theology,Mysteries,Science Fiction,Drama, and much more!!
A male narrator. The story needs to provide more background to how the world depicted in Agenda 21 came about. The background story would have given context.
She does a good job but the story needed more.
It does paint a picture of a world similar to 1984 but much darker.

What can happen if we don't wake up to what's around us
Enjoyable story line on a subject that is not that appealing
Keep 'em honest
It's the best book that I have read! I haven't had a book that draws you in and makes you feel like you are right there with the characters and all their emotions that they are feeling.
I loved Emmeline and how she is discovering all the changes and how she evolves to a strong woman.
Emmeline was the best character performed by January and her voice made her come to life.
The Fast and Furious Future of The Unknown America
A must read for people that quench for truth and knowledge.
I love the entire subject. Reminded me of a book I read back in 2000 called the Illuminati by Larry Burkett.
I thought the narrator was great. Very soothing voice
I never really had an ending. What did I miss? the book just stopped when the girl got out the fence and ran and then Beck came in with his announcement. Was that the ending? I felt I was left incomplete. Or maybe I didn't get the whole book?
Yes I would, while I am all about taking care of our earth, we must do so with balance. This books helps you to see the direction that local and even the federal government is slowly taking. While I saw slowly, it could easily become quickly and drastic.
There were several but hard for me to write down, I enjoyed the detailed descriptions of the people envolved and of course the Afterward.
Unlike a few others, I though she did a good job, it was easy to listen to, and she gave depth to the people she discribed. I even enjoyed her "man" voice.

I have most of Glenn's books but this is the first including Ms. Harriet Parke. I found the writing/dialogue juvenile. The imagery was far to weird for a period in time not that far removed from the pre-Republic era. For the first time in my life, as I was listening to the book, from scene to scene I thought, "I could have written such a better storyline"; and I'm not a writer! I have no doubt in my mind that this book was rushed from conception to publication. It could have been so much better. So so much better.
Actually I'd be interested in a re-write of THIS book by another author. Agenda 21 has the potential to be a great read and a great movie.
Because I was continually distracted by the poor writing, the negative impression carried through to Ms. Lavoy's performance. As this was the first time I've heard her narrate a book I'd try at least one more by her before I make a firm decision.
I appreciate your work Glenn, but this is a real stinker!
Glenn yes, Fiction I don't know
nice and neat
good reader, nothing to dislike
want to listen to this with my family on a road trip, excellent way to get them to ask questions
Although the plot is a little predictable, it is entertaining, hopefully entertaining enough to get peoples attention. I'd like to see a tv mini-series or made for tv movie
