Just 1 rating and no other reviews? Wow, you guys are missing out! I've never heard of this writer before so I rolled the dice and scored. This is a ..Show More »very original, well written "classic" sci/fi novel set in the not to distant future. This book reminded a lot of George Orwell's "1984" involving the Government and privacy rights(or lack there of). The story flowed well and there was plenty of action to keep me from mentally "drifting" and getting bored with the book. Honestly, I don't think I pressed the rewind button one time during this listen and for me, with my screwed up wandering mind that's pretty damn impressive! There are no space battles or wizards in this novel, it's just a real good "old school" science fiction story. If fed-up citizens taking on the Government is your thing than you'll probably like this book. Oh yeah, the narrator(Doug Mackey) did a really good job with the character voicing. Can't wait for book 2!
