For those who enjoy considering alternate realities and disuptopian thrillers here is a book for you. The characters are fun, the ideas intriguing, and the concepts are scarily a real possibility. Though written in the 70s, this novel is still relevant.
An interesting take on how agorism could work. The parallels to the current US economic situation and "deep state" are a little chilling. All wrapped in a Heinlein style adventure with a very mature teenage boy as the main protagonist.
The book is very intriguing and is the anti-Red Revolution.
I loved the scene where the characters are at a drug store and are able to buy all illicit drugs off of the shelves with no regulation and simple disclaimers. Fantastic!
A decent rendition, but I found, at times a bit rushed.
Close. Two sittings.
It appeared the narrator was a tad rushed at times, but overall I would highly recommend this book.
