Agenda 21 | [Glenn Beck]

Agenda 21

Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known.

Publisher's Summary

Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom.

There are only the Authorities.

Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life.

Those who cannot do either are of no use to society.

This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known. She dutifully walks her energy board daily and accepts all male pairings assigned to her by the Authorities. Like most citizens, she keeps her head down and her eyes closed.

Until the day they came for her mother.

Woken up to the harsh reality of her life and her family's future inside the Republic, Emmeline begins to search for the truth. Why are all citizens confined to ubiquitous concrete living spaces? Why are Compounds guarded by Gatekeepers who track all movements? Why are food, water and energy rationed so strictly? And, most important, why are babies taken from their mothers at birth?

As Emmeline begins to understand the true objectives of Agenda 21, she realizes that she is up against far more than she ever thought. With the Authorities closing in, and nowhere to run, Emmeline embarks on an audacious plan to save her family and expose the Republic - but is she already too late?

    "Whew just stopped half way thru."

    Man what a poor story line and reading.
    Won't be buying anymore of his books.
    Better if it was a documentary I suppose.

    Story
    "It could have been better."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It moved very slowly. I did not get a real feel for the world that Beck was trying to create.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The book plodded along toward the ending so I was happy when it came. As far as what actually happened at the end, I was not suprised based on the tempo if the book.


    Was Agenda 21 worth the listening time?

    For me, it was worth the time but it was not a very long book. It was very easy to stop listening and I found that, at times, I really did not want to turn it back on again.


    Any additional comments?

    Over all I did like the book but I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. My take on this book is that it was a re-telling of Anthem by Ayn Rand (which I read many years ago and loved). That may be the reason for my two star score for the story told here. Rand told this type of story well. Beck's book may be more important due to the actual Agenda 21 document. But I feel he could have told a better story. The afterword was interesting. I downloaded the Agenda 21 document, I may even read it one day.

    Story
    "Scary, frightening, emotionally unsettling!"
    What made the experience of listening to Agenda 21 the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyable? No. It is too close to reality for that, but, effectual is more like it. It was more unnerving than thrillers on TV!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The foresight of the mother and the daughters courage to defy a corrupt system of government.


    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    She brought the characters to life. You have to hate the care provider of the babies because she is so insensitive to the needs of others. LaVoy even made the men come alive and that seemed remarkable for a women.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The young mother holding her baby after the State took her away. The little boy afraid to ask to go to the bathroom. The escape from the facility. Her love for her husband. Her leadership qualities.


    Any additional comments?

    The fact that the UN, our enemies around the world and the third world nations want to strip us of what we have worked for and enslave us for their ease is just about to much to bare as its potential is dramatized by this book. If you don't believe Obama and Hillary Clinton want to do this to us you need to pull your head out of the indoctrination Boob Tube and get your kids out of the public school system. My text book for a college course was all about promoting one world government and that was about ten years ago. If you think Glen Beck is overly dramatic it is because he is scared into it by what is going on here and abroad.

    Story
    "Hunger Games on a budget."

    This book reads like a Hunger Games clone with some heavy handed politics shoe horned in. Glen Beck puts his name on it, but I'm assuming that's just a sales tactic. If it was just a young adult adventure, I would still think this is poor fare, but add in Beck's 'the end of the world' schtick, and it just becomes one eye roll after another.

    Avoid.

    Story
    "Thought provoking but ending left me wanting more."
    Would you try another book from Glenn Beck and/or January LaVoy?

    yes


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    How easily this situation could happen in our future. Least interesting - how dismal life would be if government took away all out choices and independence.


    Did Agenda 21 inspire you to do anything?

    This book inspired me to be more diligent in knowing my Constitutional rights and what I can do to inform others so we don't become sheeple! It is so important that the next generation know the facts about our actual history (not revisionist history) so the same mistakes are not made.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't like the ending of the story--left too much unknown. If a sequel book is written, I will buy it to find out what happens next.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Interesting prophetic political fiction. Glenn beck is a bit "out-there" for me. However, this was a neatly written thought provoking work. Really fun and worth a credit. It would really suck if Beck turns out to be right and all or some of the things in this novel come true. We really don't want to piss our own freedom down the drain.

    Story
    "Interesting plot, however........"

    I appreciated the idea of how things could be in a very controlling and closed society in an apocalyptic scenario; however, this particular book ends too abruptly. I felt like I fell off of a cliff with no resolution, I really hate stories that end like this, it would not be so bad if there was a sequel but have not seen one. The author had an alternate motive, to prove a point, but I was not able to buy into it even in a fiction kind of way.

    Story
    "Thought Provoking..."
    If you could sum up Agenda 21 in three words, what would they be?

    Fictional, though possible.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I think there was so much detail in other parts of the book, but the last few chapters were lacking. I felt as though the author got through writing 3/4 of the book, and rushed through writing the last part in order to meet a deadline.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were several scenes that were powerful. The description of the baby nursery, and the Children's Village, was touching. The narrator described well how the babies struggled to thrive without consistent parental contact.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't laugh or cry, but I did think. I do not agree as the book implies, that these drastic social upheavals could be accepted as normal in one generation. But then I think about the 'working mothers' who were rare just 40-50 years ago, and now everyone thinks 'stay at home moms' are so lucky! I think if we allow incremental slips in cultural norms, then before long, we wonder how we got where we are.
    There are people who think this book is all conspiracy and black-helicopter fiction. I just think it's a book to make us think about what could happen if we don't pay close enough attention to what's happening around us.
