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?

    "Can it Happen Here?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Agenda 21 to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agenda 21?

    When "mother" just gave up and stopped walking the activity board. When there's no hope it's hard to keep on.


    Which character – as performed by January LaVoy – was your favorite?

    Emmeline


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Interesting Listen. Wow"

    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.

    "Does not live up to the hipe"
    What could Glenn Beck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    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.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by January LaVoy?

    She does a good job but the story needed more.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It does paint a picture of a world similar to 1984 but much darker.

    "A book that will draw you in till the very end!!!"
    Where does Agenda 21 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Emmeline and how she is discovering all the changes and how she evolves to a strong woman.


    Which character – as performed by January LaVoy – was your favorite?

    Emmeline was the best character performed by January and her voice made her come to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Fast and Furious Future of The Unknown America


    Any additional comments?

    A must read for people that quench for truth and knowledge.

    "I really enjoyed this book"
    What did you love best about Agenda 21?

    I love the entire subject. Reminded me of a book I read back in 2000 called the Illuminati by Larry Burkett.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I thought the narrator was great. Very soothing voice


    Any additional comments?

    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?

    "A good look at the extreme result of Agenda 21"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agenda 21?

    There were several but hard for me to write down, I enjoyed the detailed descriptions of the people envolved and of course the Afterward.


    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    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.

    "Juvenile writing. Bad editing/rush to publication"
    Would you try another book from Glenn Beck and/or January LaVoy?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Glenn Beck again?

    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.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by January LaVoy?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciate your work Glenn, but this is a real stinker!

    "great way to get nieve kids attention"
    Would you try another book from Glenn Beck and/or January LaVoy?

    Glenn yes, Fiction I don't know


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

    nice and neat


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    good reader, nothing to dislike


    Did Agenda 21 inspire you to do anything?

    want to listen to this with my family on a road trip, excellent way to get them to ask questions


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Is there really an Agenda 21"

    The story was engaging and I didn't want to put it down. It's a good story about what could happen in a Socialist type society when pushed to the extremes. What is interesting to listen to is the commentary at the end where the author discusses Agenda 21 and the ramifications he envisions if any or all parts are put into play. Some I agree with, some I disagree with. I have to admit my ignorance of such a summit and such a document. I just googled "Agenda 21" and downloaded the document. In these days where the World's current structure is collapsing all around us, it could be a good document to read and understand.
