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?

I like Glenn Beck and I trust him. He is a great writer. It was excellent.
Good info in the book, kinda slow and predictable
The author is a reliable source of accurate information
Hearing this truth while being productive.
John who knew how to escape.
Socialism does Not work!
Yes, I would recommend it and have recommended it. I think it is so completely revelant for today. Ayn Rand would be proud of Glenn Beck...Today's true hero
The book was slow moving and the main character was confused the whole book about what was going on. The book took the long way to tell the story. It would of been better if they told a story about how to bring down Agenda 21. A disappointment from The Overton Window .
I was educated into oblivion but have overcome 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.
Faction in time
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.
