Desperate Times 2 Gun Control | [Nicholas Antinozzi]

Desperate Times 2 Gun Control

Desperate times continue to grind on with no sign of Martial Law ending soon or any hope that the economic crisis has subsided. Jimmy and his group learn of another camp of refugees that live not ten miles away from them. The group has adopted a 1960's era commune theme, complete with hippie slang and a flower child mentality. The commune was created out of one of the grand old lodges of northern Minnesota and is called Utopia, and they have one rule: No guns allowed.

Publisher's Summary

Desperate times continue to grind on with no sign of Martial Law ending soon or any hope that the economic crisis has subsided. Jimmy and his group learn of another camp of refugees that live not ten miles away from them. The group has adopted a 1960's era commune theme, complete with hippie slang and a flower child mentality. The commune was created out of one of the grand old lodges of northern Minnesota and is called Utopia, and they have one rule: No guns allowed.

By chance or design, the population of Utopia is 90% female and for some strange reason, the National Guard seems perfectly content to allow it to exist without harassment. Jimmy's group is evenly split on joining up with the much larger group, who appear to be at peace with the world. Ken Dahlgren, Jimmy's host, is bound and determined to remain where he is. Patty, Ken's wife, suddenly seems to be losing her grip on reality and it only adds more tension to the situation. Julie, Jimmy's girl, seems intent on staying with the hippies and giving up her guns. Jimmy is torn between the two sides.

Jimmy is introduced to a new world as he steps back in time to experience the sixties. What he painstakingly learns is that those he considers to be left-wing liberals are every bit as stubborn as the right-wing conservatives, which he has aligned himself with. The storyline here is a no holds barred, Desperate Times, look at regular people pushed to the limit and forced to respond. The result is a powerful story with an interesting message.

    "Exciting Times in Desperate Times!"

    I love this kind of story. There was never a time while listening when I hoped that it would “hurry up” and end. As a matter of fact, as I neared the end of the audiobook, I felt bad that it was coming to a conclusion (which was a great ending, but I don’t want to write any spoilers here) – I wanted to hear more of Jimmy and the rest of his group. And the narrator – Joe Cirillo – was great; he seemed like as much as an actor as a narrator. He really brought the words alive. Also, any book that takes you back in time needs to make you believe that you are really back there (in this case the 1960s), and Nicholas Antinozzi succeeds beautifully. Another great thing about Desperate Times II – Gun Control is that I loved it without having first listened to the first volume in the series – and now I want to go back and get audiobook, too. Finally, the main character’s recognition about the (unfortunate) similarities between right-wing lunatics and left-wing bleeding hearts. Five stars!

    Bought the Audible version, and 9 hours and 27 minutes into a 9 hour and 57 minute story I gave up....just could not tolerate one more minute.

    Story
    "I'll stop here!"

    Unfortunately the author keeps his main character a whimp and gets even worse at it over the second book. Nor does the author know military munitions, i.e. hand grenades and how they work. The story was ok and it ran in line with the first book but I can't take anymore of the main character and the development of the story stays pretty much static to where you can guess what's next I mean like a whole chapter ahead.
    It's too bad I think the author had a good idea he just didn't take the time to develope it.
